The verdicts coming out of the Ergenekon trial are clear indicators that Turkey's old power establishment has not only been silenced and marginalized, but also are targets of punishment. Whichever way one looks at the political landscape, it is clear that 2014 will be typified by many dark clouds on the horizon for the country's leaders.
I come from a fragmented society. A country proud to serve as a bridge between Europe and Asia yet unable to bridge its' own differences. This became apparent for the whole world to see during the Gezi Park protests. The uprising came about not as power struggle nor as demands for political freedoms; not as an ethnic struggle or one for democracy.
