Greetings from Istanbul. Monday evening I met with some friends in a cafe in Cihangir. Among us in a constantly changing cast were a CHP member of parliament, two Italian journalists, a young producer, a TV actress who has also opened a theater for street children, some Turkish journalists, and some Turkish academics in different fields from the US. As some people left, others joined us. Interviews were carried out, new relationships forged, old ones renewed, conversational partnerships formed and reformed, sometimes coming together in one great roundtable. The main topic ? you can guess ? was the protests, what they meant, the future and the past.
