Protests in Turkey - level 1
The leaders in Istanbul wanted to change a park. The people didn't like it. So they protested.
More and more people came. But it wasn't only about the park. They protested against the leaders. Police used water cannons and gas. The protests were not only in Istanbul. They are in Ankara too.
One thousand people needed help from doctors after these protests because the police reaction was very strong.
Interesting words: leaders (bosses), cannon (machine which uses water for demonstrators).
