Turkish Protesters Deliver a Rousing ‘Les Miserables’ Performance

Subscribe to TheFW on

Anti-government protesters in Turkey are looking for some Academy Award-sized help in their fight.

The Occupy Gezi movement recently laid out their case by singing the song ‘Do You Hear the People Sing?’ from the Oscar-winning movie ‘Les Miserables.’ The video has quickly become an internet sensation and even caught the attention of one of the film’s stars, Russell Crowe, who, ironically, played a villainous police officer in the movie.

Crowe urged everyone to remain safe when he took to his Twitter account to address the situation:

The protests are now in their third week. And, who knows, maybe Anne Hathaway will jump in to voice her support, too.
