Erdogan links Turkish and Brazil protests: same forces behind them
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has suggested that the protests erupted on the 31st of May in Taksim square in Istanbul, which expanded through all Turkey and the ones in Brazil, which took place in the meanwhile of the Confederations Cup, “are being led from the same center”.  During one of his party meeting (Akp), he argued that both Turkish and Brazil protests-starters used English to write their banners and posters, rather than using the local language.
