Turkish police fired teargas and water cannon at demonstrators on Saturday as Istanbul was engulfed by a second day of protests. The unrest stems from a protest earlier this week over plans to turn the city’s Gezi park into a shopping mall, but the demonstrations appear to have transcended that issue, becoming a general rebuke of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his party.

Reportage photographers Ed Ou and Antonio Bolfo have been in Istanbul photographing the protests. See more of their work on the Getty Images Web site, here and here.

This can’t be happening in a beautiful city like Istanbul!
