Mapping the Commons workshop participants will be joining the protests against Taksim Project today. Taksim Project entails restructuring of a major part of the city by destroying Gezi Parki and its surrounding area. Under the veil of creating a more pedestrian friendly area, the project threatens the common uses and habits of the city.
The protesters will meet today at 17.00 in front of Taksim PTT to reclaim the space.
