Tonight at 9.00 PM the riot police intervened against the Gezi Park resistance violently, following the speech of Prime Minister Erdoğan in Ankara. The intervention created a much stronger second wave of mass mobilizations across the country after the 31th May/1st June uprising.
This is an obvious declaration of war by AKP against the people.
Currently all main highways of Istanbul are occupied by demonstrators. Just now tens of thousands of people are fighting in the streets, trying to march to Taksim square. Police use not only tear gas but also rubber bullets. Many people including party members have been injured so far.
The Communist Party of Turkey mobilized all its members and made an urgent call for demonstrations all over the country.
