Turkey's trade union confederation KESK has called a general strike for Monday after a police raid on a protester camp in Istanbul's Gezi Park this evening.
Police wielding tear gas and water cannon are locked in an ongoing struggle with anti-government demonstrators for control of the park and adjoining Taksim Square.
Anti-government protesters and police have been fighting a running battle for control of Istanbul's Taksim Square on an 11th day of clashes.
"We'll never forget what we have seen in the past few days. People bleeding on the street from rubber bullets and nurses beaten by police."
