Turkey: fundamentalists repress secularist demo

In an unprecedented repressive move, Turkish police attacked a secularist demonstration celebrating the 89th anniversary of the Turkish Republic. While the media are stepping on this fascist institutional violence as a mere side story eclipsed by Sandy, Syria and Ukraine, this may be a step too far for the neo-Ottoman government, which courts this way the ideological partition of the country, already much shattered by the endless war of Kurdish independence.
