”if half our heart is here, the other half is in Istanbul” In solidarity with the protesters in Turkey

We look to the situation in Turkey and while the initial response is one of anger at the governments brutal repression, we take heart from the continued struggle of the people. As Nazim Hikmet would say, if half our heart is here, the other half is in Istanbul and throughout Turkey. We take to the square of Taksim and beyond with our Turkish brothers and sisters in the spirit of solidarity. Fight on! We stand beside you!

ANGINA PECTORIS
By Nazim Hikmet

If half my heart is here, doctor,
the other half is in China
with the army flowing
toward the Yellow River.
And every morning, doctor,
every morning at sunrise my heart
is shot in Greece.
