Turkish shares (TUR) plummet after demonstrations in Istanbul over the preservation of a park turn into a vehicle for an outpouring of anti-government anger amid accusations that it is becoming increasingly authoritarian. Over 1,000 people have been injured and at least two have died as the crowds brave tear gas and rubber bullets. The Istanbul National 30 index is -4.8%, while the lira is -0.9% vs the dollar.
