HopeGirl’s Response to Foster Gamble: If I had Edward Snowden’s proof this is what I would do.

Our Friend Foster Gamble posed the question, “If you had Edward Snowden’s Proof, what would you do?” in his video blog. I wanted to respond by telling my story and hope that it can bring some clarity and inspiration to those who read it, so that you can understand some of the internal processes that occur when someone like Snowden is in a position where they have to choose the direction of their moral compass. I too am a whistle-blower. Though nowhere near as tremendously significant as Snowden, but I did have my own experience that was tremendously significant to me as it dramatically changed my life. A couple of years ago I was employed as a Financial Analyst in a billion dollar firm working primarily with investment banks. I had high level access to a lot of information, and I saw clear-as-day blatant corruption that was negatively affecting the lives of about 300 of my fellow employees. And what was worse, is that the more that I uncovered, the more I began to realize that my actual role in this company was to assist in facilitating this corruption. Once I came to this realization, I could no longer claim ignorance and my moral compass kicked on with a fierce battle cry. I want you to know that it was a “good job”. I had worked for years to...

What is Happening in Istanbul?

To my friends who live outside of Turkey: I am writing to let you know what is going on in Istanbul for the last five days. I personally have to write this because most of the media sources are shut down by the government and the word of mouth and the internet are the only ways left for us to explain ourselves and call for help and support. Four days ago a group of people most of whom did not belong to any specific organization or ideology got together in Istanbul’s Gezi Park. Among them there were many of my friends and students.  Their reason was simple: To prevent and protest the upcoming demolishing of the park for the sake of building yet another shopping mall at very center of the city. There are numerous shopping malls in Istanbul, at least one in every neighborhood! The tearing down of the trees was supposed to begin early Thursday morning. People went to the park with their blankets, books and children. They put their tents down and spent the night under the trees.  Early in the morning when the bulldozers started to pull the hundred-year-old trees out of the ground, they stood up against them to stop the operation. They did nothing other than standing in front of the machines. No newspaper, no television channel was there to report the protest....
