Riot Police Oust Protesters In Turkey

    Prime Minister Erdogan ordered riot police to finally go into Gezi Park and clear the protesters out. Using tear gas and water cannons police chased the protesters through the Istanbul streets. The crowd had been protesting for the last 18 days over the fact that the park was to be turned into a shopping center.
    At least that was the original idea, but as the government cracked down on the protesters a broader view of the authoritarian rule of Erdogan came under fire. With this latest violence everyone is wondering how the country will react. Please continue your peaceful protest. Don't let this two faced politician get the better of you. He will not allow any vote on the park to take place. The world is watching and waiting for your next move. People of Turkey fight for your freedoms.
