100,000 Turkish Protesters Calling for the Resignation of Prime Minister

Published on Jun 2, 2013
More than 100,000 Turkish protesters have gathered at Istanbul’s Taksim Square, calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Recep Tayyib Erdogan.

Thousands of others also took to the streets in cities, including the capital Ankara, Izmir, Mugla and Antalya in support of the protesters in Istanbul.

Protesters say that Erdogan is out of touch with the reality on the ground and want his government to step down.

The unrest turned into anti-government protests after police moved into Taksim on Friday in order to break up a sit-in protest against the razing of the park, wounding at least two dozen people.

On this edition of The Debate, we will discuss the latest protests and events taking place in Turkey.
