Massive rally illuminates Taksim as protests continue in Turkey

    Sunday, June 09, 2013   No comments

The Gezi Park protests entered another day as crowds gathered for a massive rally in Istanbul’s Taksim Square today, despite Ankara clashes that had occurred in the morning hours.

Cities nationwide continued to demonstrate in support of the ongoing protests, but Taksim again became the heart of the movement as thousands gathered for a rally scheduled to take place in the afternoon hours of June 9.

A stage was set up for the rally in the middle of the square, with protesters designing signs and slogans before it started. The rally, organized by the Taksim Solidarity Platform, which represents the protesters in Gezi Park, was represented by the platform as a response to the failed attempts at resolving the issue through meetings with government officials, namely Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç.
