Nearly 5,000 protesters’ all-night action ended with a police intervention with gas bombs and water cannons in the Central Anatolian province of Eskişehir, leaving three protesters, a journalist and a police officer injured.

Slogans like “everywhere Taksim, everywhere resistance” and “government resign” were chanted by the crowd in front of a mall called Espark in the city’s Eskibağlar neighborhood.

The police’s heavy crackdown managed to disperse the group; however a group of 500 people stayed in the mall and blocked the way in front of it.

The clashes lasted at 5 a.m. today.

Eskişehir has been one of the most remarkable provinces in Turkey, attending Gezi Park protests across the country from the very beginning following the Occupy Taksim movement.
