Performance artist Erdem Gunduz, nicknamed 'The Standing Man,' became a new symbol of the anti-government protests after a eight-hour vigil in Taksim Square. Gunduz reportedly said he was protesting in solidarity with demonstrators after they were evicted from Gezi Park that adjoins Taksim Square. The protests began in May, with environmentalists upset over plans to build in Gezi Park, and has grown into a broader demonstration against Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's government.
