Riot Police In Taksim Square

Turkish Riot Police

Istanbul, Turkey

Turkish riot police confronted protesters today in Istanbul’s Taksim Square ahead of a planned rally on May 1st. The government has banned any gatherings in the square, but that didn’t stop protesters last year in 2013 when clashes broke out. The annual May Day (Labor Day) event is aimed at securing better rights for workers, such as creating trade unions.
