Protests in Istanbul, Ankara and Antioch

* TMMOB (Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects) members held large protests against the unlawful budget cuts and de facto disabling of the chamber in Ankara and Istanbul.

* Without any substantial reason the police attacked the protestors in Istiklal Avenue with water cannons, tear gas and rubber bullets. Clashes continue in the side streets.

* The people of Antioch started gathering in the Ugur Mumcu square to commemorate the martyrs of the resistance. Antioch was the hometown of Ali Ismail Korkmaz and Abdullah Comert.
