A record of Taksim Gezi Park protest meetings

In the context of Taksim Square restoration project, the prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced the replacement of Taksim Gezi Park by a shopping mall. The bulldozers started invading the area at late hours of night in May 27, 2013. Consequently, civilians occupied the area to stop the destruction. Due to the government’s increasing pressure and the severe violent actions taken by the police, the occupation quickly turned into a giant protest with the attendance of thousands of people. This archive of photos collected from Twitter shares is dedicated as a memorial to the Taksim Gezi Park protest meeting. As of now, June 1, the protests continue day and night with an increasing violence. Media broadcast is prohibited, mobile network is jammed, subways to Taksim are shut down and the surveillance cameras are turned off.
