Music instead of protests - level 2

Music instead of protests - level 2

17-06-2013 06:00

Instead of protests and explosions the people in Turkey heard relaxing music. A German musician played the piano at a famous square in Istanbul.

The people appreciated beautiful sounds of this music. The whole square was lit in a blue colour and there seemed to be no sign of violence. The atmosphere was very peaceful and friendly.

However, the concert was over soon and people are asking themselves what will happen next. The Turkish Prime Minister said that they will clear this square from protesters in 24 hours.

Interesting words: appreciate (be happy for something), lit (full of light from something).
