TURKEY-UNREST-POLITICS

An anti-government protester looks at Turkish riot policemen position at Taksim Gezi park in Istanbul on June 13, 2013. Today the Turkish government urged thousands of protesters to evacuate an Istanbul park, repeating plans to hold a referendum to decide on the park’s future in its first major concession in nearly two weeks of anti-government unrest. After heavy police crackdown against protesters earlier in the week, the mood was subdued and peaceful in central Taksim Square while demonstrators in the capital Ankara were dispersed in the early hours of the day with tear gas and water cannons.
