Reading as resistance: The Taksim Square Book Club

Love these pictures from Taksim Square. Communal standing and communal reading as peaceful protest. As Al Jazeera reporter, George Henton, says: ‘The chosen reading material of many of those who take their stand is reflective, in part, of the thoughtfulness of those who have chosen this motionless protest to express their discontent.’
