The protests have been focused on Istanbul’s Taksim Square, sparked by a government-backed development plan. But analysts say that’s not what it’s about anymore.
抗议的焦点问题是伊斯坦布尔的塔克西姆广场,导火线是政府发起的发展计划。但分析家称抗议已不是那么简单的事了。

“The real agenda behind the protests is to say to the government, ‘Look, enough is enough'," said Gül Berna ?zcan, a Turkey expert at Royal Holloway University of London. She said secular Turks feel angry and helpless.
伦敦皇家霍洛威大学的土耳其专家Gül Berna zcan说,“抗议背后的真正议题是想告诉政府,‘适可而止’。”她说世俗派土耳其人感到愤怒和无助。

“The key issue is that the AK Party missed a great opportunity. It could have proven to its skeptics in Turkey and elsewhere in the world that they respect democracy, and democracy and Islam could coexist and enhance each other," she said.
“关键问题是,正义与发展党错失了良机。该党原本可以向土耳其和世界各地的怀疑者证明,自己是尊重民主的,民主和伊斯兰是可以共存和互相提高的。”

The AK Party is the Islamist-inspired movement of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has been in power for 10 years and was re-elected two years ago with 50 percent of the vote - a huge margin by European standards. It is his residence that protesters have put under siege, angry about policies that restrict the availability of alcohol, ban public displays of affection and intimidate the press, among other things.
正义与发展党是总理雷杰普·塔伊普·埃尔多安领导下的伊斯兰运动,埃尔多安执政已经10年,两年前以50%的支持率再度当选,按照欧洲标准,这个支持率相当高。抗议者目前将他的住处包围了起来,总理的政策限制酒精、禁止公共场合亲热并恐吓媒体,还有其他方面都令抗议者感到愤怒。
