(ISTANBUL) — Massive groups of anti-government demonstrators are rallying again on Sunday in Istanbul, the 10th consecutive day of protests against Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Erdogan himself took to the top of a bus earlier on Sunday, telling his supporters that he had no intention of backing down in the face of the protests. Erdogan condemned his opponents as “looters,” and according to BBC News, he urged his supporters to respond to the protests by turning out to vote in next year’s local elections.
