Protests in Turkey continue this week, as pressure mounts from government for the protests to stop. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told party leaders Thursday, “We have arrived at the end of our patience.”
From FOX News:
Turkey’s prime minister issued a “final warning” to protesters on Thursday, demanding that they end their occupation of a park next to Istanbul’s landmark Taksim Square.
Sticking to his trademark defiant tone, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan also rejected condemnation by the European Parliament over the excessive use of force by Turkish riot police against demonstrators.
“I am giving you my final warning,” he said, issuing the ultimatum to the thousands of holdouts in a sit-in in Istanbul’s Gezi Park, which is next to the square. He urged parents with children at the park to convince them to pack up and go home.
