Thousands call on Turkey’s leader to quit

Protests swept Turkey on Friday and deep into Saturday morning as thousands of protesters called on prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to resign.

Drivers hit car horns in support of the demonstrators.

However, the size of the protests, and the speed with which they grew, appeared to be a reaction not just to the police crackdown on the initial demonstration in Gezi Park but to Mr Erdogan’s general approach to government.

“Gezi park is the new Tahrir of the region,” said Koray Caliskan, a Turkish columnist, in reference to the epicentre of Egypt’s 2011 revolution.

Although the government is involved in a dialogue with Turkey’s Kurdish population that has brought about a ceasefire in the 30-year conflict with the Kurdistan Workers Party, tensions remain high on other fronts.

The government has also recently pushed through restrictions on alcohol consumption, much to the anger of members of Turkey’s old secular elite.
