Democracy Healthy In Turkey

In Ankara this week students were out on the streets protesting. It seems student fees are an International issue. Education, education, education! It reminded me I have not seen a serious student protest here in Britain in ages here. Is that a sign we are happy, that everything is well, or are students just not that interested in protesting? Note the heavy police presence, and police armoured vehicles. Pleased to report no-one was hurt that I am aware of.
If you want a wonderful link telling you a lot about Turkey:
