In spite of what seems a decrease on information from the ground, with the international media focused on Taksim Square but paying almost no attention to what happens in the rest of the country, the protests and violent clashes continue in Turkey as hundreds of thousands of workers joined a two-day strike in solidarity.
Charismatic Kurdish imprisoned leader, Abullah Ocalan has declared his solidarity with the rebels:
To me the resistance movement makes a lot of sense and I salute it.
Marches and protest concentrations continue through the country with Ankara, Izmir, Mugla, Antalya and Istanbul being just examples.
While the opposition has called for early elections, Erdogan has convened his party's leadership, as even his former sympathizers have joined in great numbers to the multitude of protesters.
A UStream channel (ÇapulTV) has been created to broadcast the protests at Taksim Square (in Turkish).
