At 10,000 strong, this passionate protest erupted in Ankara, Turkey in June of 2007 after three soldiers were killed in a very avoidable skirmish with rebel forces in the south. The three key elements of any good rebellion are clearly painted on the faces of the primary players in this picture.

The blind zeal of the young man in front.

The clamoring confusion of the men on the left.

And the sober reality chiseled upon the man to the right.

    The sign they're throwing indicates they followers of the "Grey Wolves", a turkish neo-fascist youth organization. No "good rebellion" for my money.

    Justin said (27 Dec 2009):

    A "good rebellion" in this case is merely indicative of the fact that it accomplishes the necessary prerequisites. Being all too familiar with the lamentable value system of the Wolves, I share your position completely, Marcus.
