Protesters in Istanbul, Turkey attempted to march to Taksim Square to commemorate the first anniversary of the Gezi Park protests and sit-in on Saturday, but were prevented from reaching their destination by police, who blocked access to the square and kept people away with tear gas and water cannons.
One year ago today, Turkish police violently dispersed a small sit-in at Gezi Park in Istanbul’s Taksim Square. It started with a small group that wanted to save the park from destruction (developers had plans for a shopping mall to be built there)

Breaking with its long-held policy of refusing to negotiate with terrorist organizations, the White House has agreed to release five Taliban prisoners in exchange for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who has been held by the Taliban in Afghanistan since June 30, 2009
The peaceful transfer of Bergdahl into the hands of American special-operations forces took place on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. ET
Once in transit away from his former captors, Bergdahl asked if the team taking him away was a U.S. special-forces team, at which point one of the soldiers confirmed his guess and said, “Yes, we’ve been looking for you for a long time,” according to The New York Times. At that point, Bergdahl reportedly broke down in tears. Read more…

MOSCOW — A handful of demonstrators took to the streets in two small gay-pride rallies in Moscow on Saturday, but turnout was poor, even compared to last year. At least six participants were detained by police.
The authorities had already banned one march scheduled for Tuesday, which was meant to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality in Russia. But activists vowed to press ahead with demonstrations Saturday, The Moscow Times reported.
Even though homosexuality has been legal in Russia for more than two decades, President Vladmir Putin signed a law last year banning “propaganda of nontraditional sexual practices”, and Moscow has not allowed a gay-pride parade for nine consecutive years. Read more…

In the 1988 sci-fi flick They Live, a local drifter named John Nada stumbles upon a magic pair of sunglasses that give him the ability to see aliens. Turns out, the entire ruling class in America are nothing but aliens disguised as humans, and they’re controlling society through subliminal messages in TV ads.
Being both an action film and the ’80s, it takes a predictable turn: Nada grabs a shotgun, flips on his shades and restores democratic order, all while coining the catchphrase, “I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I’m all out of bubblegum.”
There’s “Nada” flaw in the entire film. Read more…
