Hi from Turkey,
From 28 May 2013, the plans of replacing Taksim Gezi Park with a reconstruction of the historic Taksim Military Barracks (demolished in 1940), with the possibility of housing a shopping mall. The protests developed into riots when a group occupying the park was attacked by police. The subjects of the protests have since broadened beyond the development of Taksim Gezi Park, developing into wider anti-government demonstrations. The protests have also spread to other cities in Turkey, and protests have been seen in other countries with significant Turkish communities.
In 31 May 2013, police suppressed the protesters with tear gas, arrested at least 60 people and injured hundreds. The police action received wide attention online.Protesters organized and gathered on ?stiklal Avenue, reaching thousands on the night of 31 May.
We are students from Turkey and we need some gas masks and glasses for distribute to people on streets free. Please help us very fast and help all innocent people on street.
Thanks for all everybody.
