With rubber bullets the police dispersed the participants of the gay pride in Istanbul

Sunday, June 25, police broke up an unsanctioned gay pride in Istanbul. According to the newspaper Hurriyet, around 10 LGBT activists were detained by law enforcement agencies.

Human rights activists attempted to coordinate the activity with the authorities but the permission could not be obtained. The refusal was substantiated by the extremely complex situation in the field of security and the danger of attacks on its members by supporters of a far-right ideology. In response, LGBT activists said that they are not afraid of the provocation and the March will take place.

A small group of people gathered on the way to Taksim square, but there was much more police.

Police detained several activists, and then used rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse the crowd.
