Taksim Square Mass Rally

People rally in Taksim Square, some with pictures of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, founder of the Turkish Republic. Protests began when police attacked a camp occupation against the redevelopment of Gezi Park but protests have escalated across the country against Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, his AKP government’s conservative policies and state repression. Istanbul, Turkey.
