I chose this article because I love politics and I find it is a really interesting subject. We can consider this riot to be a little bit like the riots last spring in the province of Quebec, but in a more extreme way.
Should the turkish government have permitted the sit-in in the Gezi Park?
I think that the Turkish government did a good job to empty the park because the construction of a commercial mall is suposed to start soon and it would create dealy if the people are still doing a sit-in in the park. If a government is not able to show that they have the control the society will become an anarchist society and their will be no more rules. Therefore, they did the right thing by emptying the park.
Some people might say it is a right to show that you are not satisfied with you r government and indeed it is a right. However, sometimes the rights should be taking away when the population is not acting in a respectful way against the laws. Things such as walking peacefully in the streets or a petition would be a better way to show their indignity instead of keeping the Park 24/7 busy so that the constructions wouldn't start.
Should the population continues their riots somewhere else or should they just stop?
