Chapulling is a newly-coined word derived from the 2013 protests in Turkey after the Prime Minister Erdogan's speech. As you probably already know, PM Erdogan has called pro-democratic peaceful protesters a bunch of "çapulcu" (normally means "looter", "marauder"). Protesters have quickly re-contextualised the deragotary term and invented the verb "to Çapul" : To resist force, demand justice, seek one's rights. The verb transformed to English as "to chapul" due to phonetics.

Chapul (verb): (/ˈtʃapu(ə)ːl/ regular, -ed): To resist force, demand justice, seek one's rights.

Chapuller (noun): (/ˈtʃapu(ə)ːlə/): A person who resists force, demands justice and seeks his/her rights.
I was chapulling when the police attacked us.
