‘Let them eat pepper gas’
Recep Tayyip Antoinette

‘Welcome the the gas festival’, ‘There is a beach under the stones’, ‘There is a revolution going on here, Signorita’,‘I could not find a slogan’ were some of the slogans written on the walls of beauteous cities of Turkey, the land of pepper. All you have been seeing in the news was a part of the festival organized by the dystopian party of the Prime Minister. One night, in thepalace of the Sultan (!) where a gathering was held accompanied by rakı, food prepared with lots of pepper and dance − a mixture of what he adores − guests decided to write a theater play…

Humour  is being spread in the streets of Turkey, still, on the 17th day of the protests. Today, mothers came to Gezi Park, to make a human chain between the police and the chapullers while the brutality was running wild on the streets of Ankara, the capital. One should also point out that every declaration of the government is like another episode of Monty Python.
