    what's going on in Gezi Park.  Are most protesters holing up in local hotels?

    •  Several thousand protesters are in Gezi Park (0+ / 0-)

      at all times, day and night. More than 5,000 reportedly stayed in the park last night.

      It seems that they take turns but I don't think it is 'organized'.

      During the day some protesters will join them for 10 minutes or 10 hours depending on how much time they have.

      Many come and bring food and other items that the protesters need.

      In the evenings and at the weekends 10s of thousands more come to Gezi Park and Taksim Square.

      Some protesers (a small number) might stay in hotels but most will go home if they need to for a shower or to rest and then come back.

      Lamb chop, we can quibble what to call it, but I think we can both agree it's creepy.
