Turkish police fired tear gas and water cannon to disperse protesters in a central Istanbul square on Saturday (July 6) as they gathered to enter a park that was the center of anti-government protests last month. The Taksim Solidarity Platform, combining an array of political groups, had called for a march to enter the sealed off Gezi Park, but the governor of Istanbul warned any such gathering would be confronted by the police.
