Something Awesome is Happening in Turkey. The People There are Living Without Dead Time.

This is another story you may never hear about if you're not tuned into alternative media. You know all that pessimism and anger and frustration we have here in the US about the state of the world? The people of Istanbul have taken this passion to the streets and are creating something beautiful. It is a creative resistance to the old paradigm. They, like us, know that another world is possible. 

And there's no time to waste. Personally, watching this video inspires me to shake off my cynicism. There is a beauty in that moment that we decide to say, "F--k it! It's time to act." It's time to live without dead time.

- Tim Hjersted. Films For Action.

 

Original: 4-17 June 2013.  Gezi Park Protests in Istanbul, Turkey.
