Istanbul Governor Hüseyin Avni Mutlu reopened the city’s Gezi Park on Monday, nearly a month after protests against plans to redevelop the site triggered mass anti-government demonstrations across the country.
Taksim Gezi Park, which has become the heart of the anti-government movement sweeping the nation, was opened again to public use today by the Istanbul governor with a ceremony.
Istanbul Gov. Hüseyin Avni Mutlu, Mayor Kadir Topbaş and some district mayors attended the reopening.
