Demonstrators across Turkey took to the streets again this morning, continuing a week of unprecedented protest against what they see as Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's authoritarian rule, police brutality, and the destruction of Istanbul's Taksim Park for the sake of a development project. More than 4,300 people have been wounded so far in a dozen cities, and at least two have died. Members of the Turkish government offered apologies for excessive use of police force, but Erdogan remained dismissive and defiant, insisting he will continue with the planned development of Taksim Park. Collected here are scenes from Turkey over the past few days, as tens of thousands remain in the streets, and the government shows no sign of making concessions. (theatlantic.com) Read Less
