Excellent example of media for peacebuilding.

Music from Occupy Gezi

Inspired Arts, Music, Occupy Gezi, Peace Media Comments Off on Music from Occupy Gezi

The Occupy Gezi movement, which is taking Istanbul by storm, is a mostly nonviolent movement which attempts to address universal values like real democracy, reverential ecology, economic liberation, human rights, social justice, and peace. One of the most interesting aspects of Occupy Gezi for me (Kimberlye Kowalczyk) has been the explosion of art and music in Istanbul. Expression liberates creativity, and that is what we are seeing in Istanbul. Listen to music from Occupy Gezi for free, online here.
