Supporters playing an important role in the on going demonstrations.
Similar to the Egyptian revolution football supporters seem to play an important role in the demonstrations.
You have probably already seen the riots going on in Turkey the last days. What is special is that main football rivals now stand together in the fight against their government.
Short explained, the riots started with small demonstration against a shopping complex planned being built in one of Istanbul's parks. Police responded very aggressive and the situation came out of control. Now the protest is people vs government.
Main football rivals from Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Besiktas now stand together in the fight!
