ISTANBUL, TURKEY - JULY 6: Turkish police battle anti-government protestors along the Istikhlal shopping avenue, with a bulldozer beside a McDonald's, near Taksim Square on July 6, 2013 in the heart of Istanbul, Turkey. The protests began in late May over the Gezi Park redevelopment project and saving the park trees adjacent to Taksim Square but swiftly turned into a protest aimed at Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and what protestors call his increasingly authoritarian rule. The protest spread to dozens of cities in Turkey, in secular anger against Erdogan and his Islam-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP). (Photo by Scott Peterson/Getty Images)
