‘We Will Resist’

Late yesterday there were renewed clashes in Ankara, and residents of parts of the capital and Istanbul continued their protest by banging pots and pans on the streets. Thousands remained in Taksim Square, where a court order halted construction of a sidewalk at the park. Barricades thrown up by the demonstrators remained in place after the police withdrawal, blocking traffic on some roads.
