This saturday I became aware of two different manifestations. One was at the TV (I am always looking at the TV in the Gym....). More than 150.000 people were demonstrating in Ankara for the non religious character of the Turkish republic and against the possibility of an islamistic president. A woman was speaking to the crowd. I was very much touched.

When I went home I encountered on Via Cavour the following:


There was a smell of Pot everywhere around. The young people (participants seemed to be at High School or early College age, over 30 seemed to be represented only by the Roman Clochards comunity ) were drinking beer and whine and throwing their garbage on the street.

The worst of what 68 has left..........
