"73 lawyers are under custody and president of Bar association declared 2 hours ago that they are on the way from Ankara to Istanbul."

"Everyday I am capuling!"
Chapulling is a newly-coined word derived from Taksim Gezi Park/Istanbul/Turkey protests after the Prime Minister Erdogan's speech. He used the word "çapulcu" (normally means "looter", "marauder") to describe the peaceful demonstrators and then the social sites adapted this word to English with a new meaning: fighting for one's rights.

In a turn of events, the protesters quite quickly decided to take over the term to describe themselves as "çapulcu" and completely changed the meaning. Within days, it seemed that what was once a term describing something negative became the opposite.

All around the world, supporters for the Gezi Park events started taking photos of themselves showing "I'm chapulcu, as well" and posting it on social media addressed at the protesters in Turkey.

Soon, even mainstream media outside of Turkey started using the term, first slowly but growing by the hour.

English language teachers in Turkey started describing the use of the term in videos ("I chapul", "I chapulled", etc.).

Chapul (verb): (/ˈtʃapu(ə)ːl/ regular, -ed): To resist force, demand justice, seek one's rights.

Chapuller (noun): (/ˈtʃapu(ə)ːlə/): A person who resists force, demands justice and seeks his/her rights.
