ISTANBUL, TURKEY - MAY 31: Men walk by a poster of Marilyn Monroe as Turks set up fires, barricades, and battle Turkish police through clouds of tear gas to protest the development of the Gezi Park near Taksim Square into a shopping mall, as well as increasingly authoritarian rule from the government on May 31, 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey. The protest over removing one of the few green spaces left in downtown Istanbul has broadened into anger over what are seen to be heavy-handed actions of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Islam-rooted AKP (Justice and Development Party) which includes new rules against consuming alcohol and tough police action against any opposition.
