ISTANBUL, TURKEY – You may have heard the saying, ‘If you build it, they will come.’ Well they came alright, but they don`t want it built. The people of turkey are mad. They don`t want a historic park torn down to make way for a shopping center.


It was supposed to be a peaceful protest, but when cops showed up in riot gear to remove the protestors, it turned violent. Lots of people were hurt, one critically.
