Petition Condemn the actions taken against peaceful protesters in Istanbul Turkey

There are gross human rights violations occurring in Istanbul, Turkey. Police have fired water cannons and smoke bombs into peaceful protests against the plans to put a development in the park Gezi in Taksim.

The government must condemn the disproportionate and violent response of the government to a peaceful protest, and instigate investigations into allegations of police attacks on A&E wards treating injured protesters.
