Turkish Prime Minister Calls Twitter A ‘Menace To Society’ Amid Protests | ThinkProgress

Turkish police added fuel to the fire after attempting to disperse the protesters with water cannons and tear gas. Makeshift tents set up in Taksim Square — akin to those during the Occupy movement in the U.S. — were set ablaze in the early morning hours. Rather than shrinking the protests, the police action seemed to widen them, leading to as many as 10,000 Turkish protesters flooding the streets. Images of protesters in homemade gas masks circled the Internet, alongside YouTube videos of demonstrators facing further attack from the police.
