Turkey protest graffiti

At the outset of the protests, CNN's Turkish television outlet CNNTurk came under criticism for showing a documentary about penguins instead of covering the riots and protests. As a result, penguins have begun appearing as a symbol of the protests. Translation: "Antarctica Resisting." From Occupy Turkey Graffiti on Facebook.

Graffiti as the voice of Turkish protest

Many of the images from the riots in Turkey have featured protesters clashing with police, clouds of tear gas and bright flames, but on the edge of many of these images are snippits of graffiti. For many of the protesters, this has become a powerful form of communication for the world to better understand their plight. The Facebook page Occupy Turkey Graffiti has collected together many of these images.
