The protest began over the Gezi Park redevelopment project but swiftly turned into a protest and street party aimed at Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and what protestors call his increasingly authoritarian rule. The protest has spread to dozens of cities in Turkey, in secular anger against Mr. Erdogan and his Islam-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP). (Photo by Scott Peterson/Getty Images)
