Turkish police fire tear gas to break up Internet protest
ISTANBUL Sat Feb 8, 2014 1:19pm EST
Police fired water cannon and teargas to disperse hundreds of people protesting in central Istanbul on Saturday against new controls on the Internet approved by parliament this week.
The new powers, once approved by the president, will let authorities block web pages within hours, in what the opposition has said is part of a government bid to stifle discussion of a corruption scandal.
Riot police advanced along Istanbul’s Istiklal Avenue behind armored vehicles firing water cannon at protesters, some of whom waved flags and held up placards.
“Everywhere is bribery, everywhere is corruption,” some chanted, in a variation of an anti-government slogan used by demonstrators in protests across the country last summer.
The corruption scandal erupted on December 17 with the arrest of businessmen close to Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and three ministers’ sons, and has grown into one of the biggest threats to his 11-year rule.
Since the scandal broke, Erdogan’s government has purged hundreds of police, sought tighter control of the courts and fired executives from banking and telecoms regulators and state television.
