Special Edition: On the Ground w/ Occupy Gezi

I interview Occupy Wall Street activist and co-founder of the Paul Robeson Freedom School Justin Wedes, who is on the ground in Istanbul for the Occupy Gezi protests. We hear from Turkish protester Ali Ozdemir who tells us how a tiny protest about the development of an urban park turned into a national movement against the “fascist” policies of President Tayyip Erdogan.
