|Seat of learning, Istanbul|
|A demonstration outside Istanbul University, 1993|
As we got closer we got the impression that the main reason for the 'low-keyness' were the presence of a number of very heavily armed special police, on big chunky BMW motorbikes and the old boiler-suits on. Machine guns were in evidence. Not that I pointed the camera anywhere near them, of course - like the demonstrators, I wasn't keen on getting on the wrong side of them and spending a couple of nights in a Turkish prison. I mean, we'd all seen Midnight Express, capice?
