A protester tries to hang a small Turkish flag on the statue of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, founder of the Republic of Turkey, during a rally at the Taskim square in Istanbul early Sunday, June 2, 2013. Public anger has flared among urban and secular Turks after police violently broke up an anti-development sit-in in the landmark Taksim Square, with protests spreading to dozens of other cities as demonstrators denounced what they see as Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's increasingly authoritarian style.
