After the police forces withdrew from Taksim Square on June 1, where a brutal crackdown targeting demonstrators protesting against the demolition of Taksim Gezi Park had taken place, peaceful demonstrators cleaned the Taksim Square voluntarily early this morning.
Many people brought the rubbish bags and cleaned all the rubbish on the ground, including tear gas canisters, stones and glasses. Many people posted pictures of the cleaned square on the microblogging site Twitter.
