Two girls join the peaceful protest, in Taksim Square, and remained standing and motionless for hours in the middle of the square watching towards Mustafa Kemal Atatürk’s portrait, defying the police who raided more and more times. Outstretched arms on hips, staring straight at Atatürk and the Turkish flag, a silence that screams in the setting for this indescribable atmosphere. It exudes a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, although the police continue to patrol the park. This quietness is without a doubt to say that the protesters do not intend to recover the park.
