Put Yourself on the Google Protest Map Against Turkish Internet Censorship

The goal is assembling 1 billion “people” on the Google Map at Taksim Square in Istanbul. The gathering will then move, pixel by pixel to the parliament building in Ankara to protest restrictions on accessing sites such as youtube, lasf.fm and Google Pages.

The virtual protest uses a Google Docs (looks like My Maps to me here) to create and move individual people, that is markers, on the map. Those outside Turkey are invited to join the protest.
