ADNAN OKTAR: For instance before doing anything for Gezi Park, our Prime Minister Erdoğan can start to plant trees there. That is, some land can be saved for planting them. He is a person who uses every opportunity to expresses his love for greenery, trees, animals, plants and human beings and he puts into practice.
But people are unaware of it; for example the photographs, the evidence of forestation works accomplished during the time when the AKP has been in power can be shown. This is impossible for us to accomplish. We do not know anything about the details of these services. The government must document these services by recording them on the video. The government can assign the Turkish Radio and Television (TRT) to this task. The state can provide the documents and assign TRT. Then it will be possible to show the services to the people.

ADNAN OKTAR: What needs to be done here is a positive attitude that will radically resolve the issue and denounce the allegations. Here they suggest that the greenery [in Gezi Park] is being ruined, that the trees are uprooted.
What is that which resolves this radically? To plant that area a thousand times more. Symbolically the trees that were sent away can also brought back and re-planted. Pools, gardens can be installed and the issue is resolved outright. It will be a worldwide resolution. Otherwise this will always be a matter of tension. For instance if the results of the referendum are for, for instance, the construction of the Ottoman Barracks, the protestors would still not accept it. They will simply say, “The requests of the minority are also important.” The fact is, what will essentially solve the problem here would be planting some trees on that area. What I ask our Prime Minister is to immediately forest Gezi Park and to respond to the entire world in a shocking manner. Ottoman Barracks can also be constructed on that vacant area. It is possible to construct it without touching any of the trees there. With some minor changes in the architectural plans of the barracks, all trees can be taken into account along with that structure. Then the issue will be resolved.

ADNAN OKTAR: The warnings of people with good intentions there have been beneficial to the government. They said that they would be waiting for the court’s verdict and then hold a referendum. But what I have said was not fulfilled. A great pool; I am repeating again, a great pool with swans in it. Little ponds and bronze sculptures must decorate this great pool. Pigeons and gardens must adorn that place. Sport facilities would not be becoming for that area; it is not an Olympic village. It is a place for going for a walk, not a sports facility. You already go around there. That is sports. Small, decorative cafes, restaurants and a very beautiful masjid, a beautiful one. And a structure reminding one of the Ottoman Barracks, not exactly the same one. A structure embellished with Ottoman fine arts and breathtaking ornaments. And this has to be accomplished without uprooting a single tree. And if possible, planting must be ten times more than its previous state. This can be accomplished by turning the area over to the public. The concrete must be turned to gardens as soon as possible.
