A protestor throw back a tear gas cannister at riot police near Taksim square in Istanbul, on May 31, 2014, as the police blocked access to the square on the first anniversary of the Gezi park and Taksim square demonstrations. Turkey's combative prime minister warned protesters that police would do 'whatever is necessary' to clamp down on demonstrations today in Istanbul's Taksim Square to mark the anniversary of last year's turmoil. Last year, what started as a small campaign to save the nearby Gezi Park from the bulldozers eventually drew an estimated three million protesters in an outpouring of anger at the perceived authoritarian tendencies of Erdogan's Islamic-rooted government. Eight people died and thousands were injured in the ensuing violence as police launched a brutal crackdown, frequently employing tear gas and water cannons.
