In this Tuesday, June 4, 2013 photo Burak Sofuoglu, a lawyer, 30, who has been living in the Gezi park of Taksim in Istanbul for a week, poses for the camera with his gas mask. He packed a few clothes and now lives in the park, and is determined to stay there until the government cancels its development plan for the square. 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.
