Gezi Park Protests in Cappadocia?

Camel gezi park protests in cappadocia
This week I wrote a guest post over at GoTourTurkey about the effects of the Gezi Park protests in Cappadocia.

Here is an excerpt of what I said:
Cappadocia is far from Turkey’s population centers and the population tends to be more conservative than in Turkey’s western cities. However, there are secular strongholds and during the height of the action last week peaceful protests were held in Avanos and Ürgüp with a few hundred people showing up in each. They were short and were more designed to make the statement that those in Istanbul and Ankara were not alone. Since that weekend (June 1-2) this area has not shown any signs that things are amiss.
