"Gezi Park and Taksim are the most popular bastions for freedom fighters these days. My photographs capture moments on the Taksim streets. Human rights, like drinking or kissing in public, are being progressively cutailed in Turkey. There is therefore a general popular uprising, including lawyers, doctors, university students, academics, architects, artists, painters, musicians, who refuse these encroachments on their liberties, and are demanding greater freedom."
Atilla Uzman

Update (Sunday 06/16/2013): Police clashed with protesters in Osmanbey and Sisli, northern districts of Istanbul, hours after Taksim Square and Gezi Park were cleared of demonstrators. Police used teargas and water cannon to disperse the crowds. Some residents showed support for the activists by banging pots outside their windows and beeping their car horns. (source: euronews)
