Minibus driver set upon by police after getting caught up in Turkey’s Gezi Park protests vows to seek justice
It was a Monday night in early June. Protesters will remember it as the night they celebrated the occupation of Istanbul’s central Taksim Square and the adjacent Gezi Park after a weekend of clashes with the police in what was arguably the largest wave of protests in recent Turkish history.
According to a report released by Worker Health and Work Security Assembly, at least 1203 workers were killed from work-related injuries in 2013 (as of December 26). Out of 1203, 59 were children and 101 were women.
