Dear prime minister,
Yesterday you made us a favor you’re not even aware of. Yesterday, i saw soccer fanatics that are supposed to be enemies help each other out in front of the cops that were ordered (by you) to attack the citizens. I saw students sharing their water and food, kurdish and turkish people walking holding hands, woman you usually call “whores” getting out of brothels to help people injured by the tear gas with lemon and water. People you call “travesties” offering shelter in their houses to people that needed them. Loyers and doctors sharing their phones numbers, medical students helping as much as they could with first aids, old women giving tissues dripped in vinegar so people could protect themselves from the crazy amount of tear gas, bus drivers blocking roads so that the harmful tanks wouldn’t be able to reach the citizens. I saw people opening drugstores after midnight to help people out. So be sure that the tears that were running downs our faces yesterday were not because of the tear gas, they were tears of glory.
