One-day strike in Turkey

In Istanbul, two union federations are on a one-day strike today to protest the forced removal of protesters in Gezi Park yesterday. This strike involves about 800,000 workers.

Travellers should be aware of ongoing sporadic clashes between protesters and police and also be aware of the potential for disruption in services. Avoid any public gathering or demonstrations since violence can happen without warning.
