Here are some more photos I took on the morning of the second day of protests. This is Istiklal street, a commercial pedestrian street that leads to Taksim Square. I arrived in Istanbul the day before the protests began, and was therefore able to see the street both before and after the riots. Just a few hours before these pictures were taken, this street was prime Western commercial space, invaded by multinational corporations and glistening with shiny storefronts. The following day, it was littered with broken glass, lemon slices (used to help with tear gas pain), and trampled paper gas masks.
