ISTANBUL, TURKEY - JULY 8: Turkish riot police line up in front of a statue dedicated to the founder of modern Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, in Taksim Square on July 8, 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey. The protests began in late May over the Gezi Park redevelopment project and saving the park trees adjacent to Taksim Square but swiftly turned into a protest aimed at Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and what protestors call his increasingly authoritarian rule. The protest 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)
