In this Tuesday, June 4, 2013 photo Beste Yurekli, 18, in her last year of high school speaks during an interview for the Associated Press at the Gezi park of Taksim square in Istanbul. She volunteered to help protesters in the park. Initially her mother didn’t want her to go because she was afraid it would be dangerous, but she felt she just couldn’t stay at home while this was going on. The central square and its leafy park in Turkey’s largest city has been occupied by protesters from all walks of life and all ages for the past six days _ the strongest show of defiance to date against the country’s popular prime minister, who many accuse of displaying increasingly arrogant ways and attempting to intervene in his citizens’ private lives.
