Walk on İstiklal Caddesi

Two recordings on one of Istanbuls main shopping road İstiklal Caddesi. People talking, music from shop, the nostalgic tramway etc…

But if i would have known that at the same time, there was a demonstration against the new legislation tightening control of the Internet, i would have been there.

Later on that day, February 22th,  Istanbuls riot cops used lots of  fired tear gas and water cannon on İstiklal against protestors.
