Typical Makeshift Barricade

Typical Makeshift Barricade

This is an example of the typical makeshift barricades one could find surrounding Taksim Square. This specific road leads down away from the Square to Gumushuyu and Besiktash Stadium. There were approximately 5 more barricades on this street. Within days of this photograph being taken, the police would storm the Square, using this as one route.
