‘Occupy Gezi’ protesters singing “Do You Hear the People Sing?” from Les Miserables (Video)

Via on Jun 13, 2013


“Photo of a person waving Turkish flag over a barricade in Besiktas, Istanbul.”

Wow.

This is how a people reclaims the freedoms that are their right, not privilege…the sort of liberty that is taken bit by bit from a free people until they’re no longer free.

For more on Turkey, here.

Do you hear the people sing?

Singing the song of angry men?

It is the music of a people

Who will NOT be slaves again!

When the beating of your heart

Echoes the beating of the drums

There is a life about to start

When tomorrow comes!

/

Will you join in our crusade?

Who will be strong and stand with me?

Beyond the barricade

Is there a world you long to see?

Then join in the fight

That will give you the right to be free!

/

Duyuyor musun sesi?

İşte bu halkın öfkesi!

Olmayacak hiçbir zaman

Bir başkasının kölesi!

Sanki kalp atışların

Karışıyor davullara

Yürüyoruz gururla

Yeni bir yarına!

/

Sen de gel katıl bize

Diren bütün bu baskıya

Durur koca dünya barikatın arkasında!

Sen de özgürlüğün için diren omuz omuza!

/

Duyuyor musun bizi?

İşte çapulcunun sesi!

Olmayacak hiçbir zaman

Bir başkasının kölesi!

Sanki kalp atışların

Karışıyor davullara

Yürüyoruz gururla

Yeni bir yarına.
