Occupy Gezi Park !
June 2013 - Turkey
Massive anti Erdogan (Prime Minister) movement born from a protest against the planned destruction of Gezi Park for a commercial mall. It started with severe clashes between protesters and police forces, to reach an amazing festive climax the week-end of June 08 & 09, 2013. Like a gigantic catharsis where the people needed to seriously cut loose. While in Ankara and elsewhere in the country violence is growing, in Istanbul everyday from now on occupiers are expecting the next government's action... which came quickly. Taksim Square and Gezi Park were cleared a few days later.
