29 Oct When Turkey took torture to the streets
The following production by Amnesty International is a good overview of the response of the emerging dictatorship in Turkey to the protests that began there this summer. Some of the footage captures the evening my team and I were caught in the police attack on the protestors. I am looking forward to sharing more of our video footage of the event in my forthcoming documentary: Revolution: Israel, Islam and the Gospel at the End of the Age. You can read more about Amnesty International’s report here.
I also found this rather grainy video from RT News that captures the moment that the police launched into the crowd on the evening we were there. Within the first couple seconds, I can be seen running from in front of the structure to the right wearing a bright yellow button down t-shirt. Sorry, I know that no one else cares much about my “Where’s Waldo” moment, but I’m having fun watching and finding myself in these news clips. Even these few months later, being part of that moment of Turkish history is still a very special memory for me and those I was with.
