Protesters Clash With Police During Gezi Park Anniversary March in Istanbul Turkey



Protesters in Istanbul, Turkey attempted to march to Taksim Square to commemorate the first anniversary of the Gezi Park protests and sit-in on Saturday, but were prevented from reaching their destination by police, who blocked access to the square and kept people away with tear gas and water cannons.

One year ago today, Turkish police violently dispersed a small sit-in at Gezi Park in Istanbul’s Taksim Square. It started with a small group that wanted to save the park from destruction (developers had plans for a shopping mall to be built there)
