Thousands of Revolutionaries flocked to the Taksim Square, the historical May Day celebration place for the laborer movement in Turkey, despite of a ban imposed by the fascist state. Policemen tried in vain to block the flux of Revolutionaries by intervening with tear gas and sticks. Revolutionary militants resisted to the police attack with stones and Molotov cocktails.

Clashes continued throughout the streets in the center of Istanbul, where a police officer was hit with a Molotov cocktail briefly burning his clothes.

The Taksim Square is a mythical emplacement in the Turkish leftist history, where 36 were shot dead or trampled by counter-guerilla backed policemen storming demonstrations with panzers.

Valiliğin tehdit ve yasaklarına kulak asmayan binlerce devrimci bugün 1 Mayıs alanı olan Taksim meydanına 30 yıl sonra geri dönerek, Türk ve Kürt solunun iradesini gösterdi.

Devletin saldırısına karşı direnişe geçen devrimciler, ara sokaklarda uzun süre çatışıp İstanbul sokaklarını polise dar etti ve 1977 şehitlerinin ruhunu, devrimci öfke ile yoğurup, faşizmin kafasına çekiç gibi indirdi.


Olağanüstü güvenlik önlemlerine rağmen önüne geçilemeyen olaylarda 900'e yakın gösterici tutuklandı, çok sayıda gösterici ve polis yaralandı.
