The European Union is demanding changes and the Ministry of the Interior in (Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan is doing all he can to keep everyone happy, turned out a lot of the protesters like many received an unwelcome reception.
Anton Goryunov reports from Istanbul
How about those cops in Turkey, eh, kicking protesters’ butts with such gusto?
All part of Prime Minister’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan government’s policy of strengthening democracy, no doubt.
Mr Erdogan likes to talk about democracy and one day join the European Union.
And to think that it all started with a peaceful demonstration about plans to transform part of Taksim Square into a Istanbul shopping centre.
According to the new law, booze can be sold only between 10 am and 6 pm. The idea is that the protesters saw it as part of the general Islamisation of the country.
The demonstrators are ‘extremists’ said the Turkish Interior Minister.
People still buy alcohol in Turkey from the underworld happened in America and it also happened in Russia.
