Eine Gruppe islamischer Fundamentalisten haben den Plattenladen Velvet IndieGround in Istanbul überfallen, in dem grade die Radiohead-Listining-Party stattfand, über die ich vor einer Woche gebloggt hatte. Mehrere Leute wurden offenbar verletzt, laut Plattenladenbesitzer, weil man es wagte, während des Ramadan Musik zu hören und Bier zu trinken.

Statement von Radiohead: „Our hearts go out to those attacked tonight at Velvet IndieGround in Istanbul. We hope that someday we will be able to look back on such acts of violent intolerance as things of the ancient past. For now, we can only offer our fans in Istanbul our love and support.“

Video of the attack was first live-streamed on Periscope. In the video, customers at the Velvet IndieGround are listening to Radiohead when a group of men carrying sticks, upset that people were listening to music and consuming alcohol during the holy month of Ramadan, entered the shop and yelled at an employee, Turkey's Posta reported.

The altercation continued outside as the men and listening party attendees yelled at each other in the street. Eventually, the mob smashed out Velvet IndieGround's glass door and windows and began physically attacking attendees. Although no one was seriously injured in the incident, one person was bloodied after being hit in the head with a bottle, Velvet IndieGround's Facebook page alerted its followers.

Statement vom Ladenbesitzer auf Reddit:

i was one of the hosts. i am the person that's speaking in that video. i am the owner of that periscope account. they were determined to kill us. we were beaten by more than 20 men with pipes in their hands, beer bottles were broken on our heads, i don't even know how we made it out. i will share the details later guys. just hoping that noone will die.

edit: thank you for your support. i love you all. looks like everyone at our event is fine. for the first time in my life, i was scared of being killed. can't even think right now, just a blank stare at the walls. weird fishes is my favourite song in the world, and i was dancing to it outside when it all started. now it has so much more meaning for me.

[update 02:34] Tränengas und Wasserwerfer gegen Regierungskritiker: „Die türkische Polizei ist gewaltsam gegen Hunderte Demonstranten in Istanbul vorgegangen. Auslöser der Proteste war ein Angriff auf Radiohead-Fans vor einem Plattenladen.“
