Gezi Park is in the focus of international and Turkish public. For couple of weeks in June 2013, Gezi Park in Istanbul, Turkey was a place that produced something we can called utopian place of self-expression, art, creativity, memories and ideas for Turkey. The experience of Gezi Park opens the question of civil rights of public space and what and to whom public spaces serve. On June 15 and 16, 2013 Turkish Riot Police crack down the park, clean the area and removed all tenants who lived under tents inside the Gezi Park in Istanbul, near Taksim Square. The story on Gezi Park brings more details on the life inside the park before it was cracked down by the police.
