Abstract

Turkey's demonstrations have been illustrated on the global news for the past few weeks. Wholly unacceptable images of police brutality and government's arrogance have been at the epicentre of the myriad accounts of the events. In the heat of the moment, especially the participants prefer to see the ongoing unrest as a revolutionary event. A vague revolutionary fantasy has been filling their heads as they challenge certain over simplistic and deteriorating myths. In doing so, it holds the argument that the recent events can be best described as the prelude of a revolution but only as a democratic purge in a developing economy.
