    Three wrong assumptions in this article: 1. The protests are against Erdogan and its party. Who said this? They are against a goernment and a political system that represses freedom. 2. the West must use these developments to strengthen democracy and secularism in Turkey. Democracy and Secularism are two opposed terms in the Turkish society. Mainly because Secularism is embodied in Kemalism, another dogma that has repressed freedom in Turkey during the last 80 years. 3. an environmental protest quickly turned into a political demonstration against Erdgoan and his party, which has been controlling the nation for over a decade, weakening its legal system, curbing opposition and dissent and boosting intelligence agencies. The Turkish legal system is above the political system and has indeed tried to sue the current government in numerous times (and revoked some of its law bills, as they attempted against the 5 principles of the Republic). The warrant of these 5 principles (one of them being secularism) is the Turkish army, that can and will take over the government in case of no obedience to them, like it has happened in numerous times in the history of the Turkish Republic. It is a fact that Turkey lacks freedom of expression, bans political parties, puts journalists in jail, etc... However, considering this a recent event caused by him and his alleged Islamism is not knowing absolutely anything about the political principles and history of the modern Turkish republic.
