Okmeydani is a neighborhood in Istanbul that is populated with people that had migrated from remote areas of Turkey. Today people who were born and raised in this neighborhood have to leave because of different reasons. Today the population says that the reason for them to leave is the government. The tensions that are present between the local population and the police forces got into a higher level after the death of Berkin Evan. During a commemoration ceremony organized for this, a citizen named Ugur Kurt lost his life when a bullet hit him on the head in the entrance of the Alawite Cem house. This event made the tensions get even higher. In Okmeydani almost every day the local population is confronted with police forces.
