    This is an ongoing situation, I assume no members are currently in the country.

    If you are then follow FCO advice, if you're a Turkish citizen then TOR and Tunnelbear will help you subvert censorship.

    Tor Project: Anonymity Online

    TunnelBear: Secure VPN Service

    For those of us in the UK,US,AUS, this is a major issue.

    There's nothing on Sky news yet but the BBC are reporting it. Unsettling times for the world.

    Right, State Department instructs US citizens to shelter in place. FCO likely to advise similar.

    :) On the bright side it's likely to turn out in our national interest.

    Erdogan live via mobile phone, generally not a good sign for a national leader.

    Oh God, what on earth is going on in the world. This could turn out very nasty indeed.

    Unsure if it is all the military or part of the military it seems.

    The pictures on the tv look quite worrying people gathering at the bridges, some way from the road blocks.

    I guess it depends if all military are involved in coup, it would certainly seem that way at the moment.

    They tried this before, hope they win, the present leader is a little hitler & has done some terrible things

    Now WW3 with Russia. If they stopped slagging him off & poking him we wouldn't be in this situation.
    Now I've got to go & build an air raid shelter for my Hammies & Guinea piggies I may be some time.:hb:

    Well, now I'm terrified. If someone could :ple: explain the whole grizzly situation to me clearly that'd be great D: because I'm slightly horrified.
    World War Three? Oh no, oh no, oh no! Someone get me a brown paper bag:bye::soz:
