Gezi Victim Remembered On Anniversary Of Death As Police Detain Protesters

Turkish police have detained several people who gathered to commemorate Gezi protest victim Berkin Elvan in Istanbul and Ankara on March 11, the first anniversary of his death. A ceremony was held in Istanbul's Okmeydanı neighborhood, where Elvan was shot by a tear gas canister during a police crackdown on protesters in 2013. A table was set on the road with a photo of Elvan, carnations, and a loaf of bread, symbolically placed to remind locals of the fact that the 15-year-old was going out to buy bread when he was shot. The mourners observed a minute's silence before singing a song written for Elvan by activist music group Grup Yorum.
