A depiction of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan portraying him as Nazi leader Adolf Hitler is pasted on the front of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk's statue, founder of Turkey, at the Taksim square in Istanbul on Thursday, June 6, 2013. The sign reads ''One day you are going to be married me because I haven't sold much Turkish nature.'' In the first days of the protests last week, Erdogan dismissed the demonstrators as “capulcu” - a Turkish word which translates as marauder, looter or plunderer. Protesters quickly turned the word to their advantage. They made it their own, Anglicizing it and turning it into a brand new verb, “Capulling” - which means protesting, resisting the tear gas and shouting anti-Erdogan slogans.
