Zeynep Arslan poses for a picture during an interview with Reuters in Istanbul
Zeynep Arslan poses for a picture during an interview with Reuters in Istanbul, June 13, 2018. Picture taken June 13, 2018. Zeynep Arslan, a volunteer for the opposition Islamist Saadet (Felicity) Party, has been wearing a Muslim headscarf since she was 12 - a right which Erdogan's government championed - but she faults him for his foreign policy. "Because I'm wearing the scarf, this doesn't mean that I must ignore the country's problems. This government allows me to cover my head, but it doesn't sever relations with Israel," she said. Arslan, however, says Erdogan's supporters are too quick to condemn all opposition as traitors, making life almost unbearable. "There is immense pressure on us. We are living in a society which is similar to George Orwell's 1984," she said. REUTERS/Umit Bektas

A man gestures during a speech by Muslim speaker Osman (C) at Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park, London, Britain May 3, 2015. "Speakers' Corner is very important. It's a place known worldwide by the educated and uneducated and in this Speakers’ Corner everyone can air their views, whether they are Muslims, Christians, Communists, Socialists, Jews, political… whatever background they have," said Osman, a speaker since the 1980s. At Speakers' Corner in the northeast corner of Hyde Park in London, near the bustle of Oxford Street, anyone has the right to turn up every Sunday and talk about whatever is dear to their heart. Some call it the home of free speech: previous orators included famous figures Vladimir Lenin, Karl Marx and George Orwell. Today the atmosphere is hectic and unpredictable, with people from all backgrounds perching on boxes or stepladders to declaim on subjects from philosophy to religion, monsters or potatoes. Hecklers interrupt, adding to the chaotic feel of a place that draws visitors from far and wide. REUTERS/Stefan Wermuth

A speaker from the Catholic Evidence Guild stands on a stepladder at Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park, London, Britain May 3, 2015. At Speakers' Corner in the northeast corner of Hyde Park in London, near the bustle of Oxford Street, anyone has the right to turn up every Sunday and talk about whatever is dear to their heart. Some call it the home of free speech: previous orators included famous figures Vladimir Lenin, Karl Marx and George Orwell. Today the atmosphere is hectic and unpredictable, with people from all backgrounds perching on boxes or stepladders to declaim on subjects from philosophy to religion, monsters or potatoes. Hecklers interrupt, adding to the chaotic feel of a place that draws visitors from far and wide. REUTERS/Stefan Wermuth

Pro-democracy protester stands in front of the government headquarters in Hong Kong
A pro-democracy protester stands in front of the government headquarters in Hong Kong November 17, 2014. The famous phrase by British writer George Orwell in "Animal Farm" was quoted to mock an earlier comment by Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, who said that free elections were unacceptable partly because they risked giving Hong Kong's poor and working class a dominant voice. Police will take action this week to clear protesters from some occupied sites, according to South China Morning Post on Monday. Protesters have occupied key areas of Hong Kong for more than six weeks, camping out in some of the world's most expensive real estate and paralysing parts of the financial centre to demand free elections for the city's leader in 2017.

The famous phase by British writer George Orwell in "Animal Farm" was quoted to mock an earlier comment by Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, who said that free elections were unacceptable partly because they risked giving Hong Kong's poor and working class a dominant voice. Thousands of protesters remain camped out in a sea of tents on a major highway close to government headquarters in Admiralty and in lesser numbers in the shopping and densely populated districts of Causeway Bay and Mong Kok.

Palestinian actors perform the play "Animal Farm" at the Freedom Theatre in Jenin refugee camp, near the West Bank city of Jenin March 28, 2009. In adapting "Animal Farm", George Orwell's allegory for Stalin's corruption of Russian revolutionary ideals, the theatre school at Jenin says it is holding up a mirror to leaders of the Palestinian Intifadas or uprisings against Israel by staging another Intifada, this time a cultural one at home.
