Okuyucu was inspired to found a party after seeing the full moon while herding his sheep. His workroom is also his party headquarters.

Serdar Okuyucu is a 38-year old Turkish shepherd from the western province of Bursa.

But that’s not all – he also leads a political movement called the Dolunay Parti, or Full Moon Party, which has grown to have a presence in 62 cities around the country.

This is his story.
