I shot this video 14 hours after riot police forcibly removed demonstrators from downtown Istanbul's Gezi Park, who were protesting its impending demolition. By Friday evening, police occupied Taksim Square, which abuts the small park, and used teargas and water cannons to beat back massive surges of protesting civilians, as they pushed uphill from the streets which feed into the square. Uniformly, the protestors I talked with expressed outrage at this use of force, which they said was typical of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's repressive and undemocratic governing style. I gathered this footage within 4 blocks of Taksim Square on Siraselviler Boulevard, until a water cannon shot my video camera out of my hands. I was able to recover about half of my footage.
