Peaceful Turkish Protest

I went to downtown Izmit, Turkey last week and filmed a long line of peaceful protesters. They came from all ages and backgrounds, and they wanted their voice to be heard in the face of repression. Watch the video and tell me if these people are a “handful of looters,” as their Prime Minister labeled them. Sometimes, to find peace, people must first protest.
