The original protest over the removal of trees to convert a downtown park into a shopping mall turned into a broader, month-long protest against the authoritarian rule of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, presenting the political biggest challenge to the PM and his ruling AK Party (AKP) after more than a decade in power.
