Turkish Police Retakes Square Amid Clashes

Turkish protesters urged people to return to Taksim Square this evening, after they were driven out by police last night.

The Taksim Solidarity group, which says it represents protesters, called in an e-mailed statement for people to return to the square from 7 p.m. It reiterated demands including the preservation of the park, the dismissal of governors and police chiefs in cities where demonstrators have been attacked, and the release of those detained during the rallies.
