Chappuling (Turkish : çapuling) is a neologism originating in the May 2013 protests in Turkey, derived from Prime Minister Erdoğan use of the term "çapulcu" (roughly translated to "looter" or "maraunder" ) to describe demonstators. The word quickly caught on, adopted and anglicized by the demonstrators with a new meaning: fighting for one's rights. Many took the concept further by integrating the unique nature of the demonstrations and defined it as "to act towards taking the democracy of a nation to the next step by reminding governments of their reason for existence in a peaceful and humorous manner." The word also used by Noam Chomsky to support the occupy turkey movement
