This is Berkin Elvan. He was fourteen when he got wounded while on his way to buy some bread, in Turkey. The young boy was hit on the head with a tear gas canister by the police, in June.He had been in a coma eversince. That makes 269 days of silence.
Over time,Berkin’s weight had dropped to 16kg (35lb).
That brings us to 11th of March, 2014, the day Berkin passed away.
“It is not God who has taken my son away. It is Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.” his mother cried, that day.
The government killed a 15-year-old boy, that day.
