Without exception, all agreed that humor was the most outstanding part of the Gezi protests in Turkey. The naive groups had been exposed to the severity of police brutality even when the intention of the groups had been entirely apolitical at the beginning. Essentialy, they simply asked for liberty and privacy in their own humorous language. The pictures below, although once translated, may not reflect enough the clever impulse of the youngsters, show that wit can be the antidote of aggression in politics.
The ingenious part of the once apolitical, non-caring youth came out in the imagination and creativity of witty slogans. This resourceful and inventive tone of the Gezi protests made it impossible to reproach. The priceless talent of the upcoming youth was the only way to show freely what they were thinking without getting involved in the hawkish tear gas mode.
