After the Government opened the central Place in Istanbul, the Taksim, for the demonstration on 1 May in Istanbul are peacefully. Violent fights between Police and demonstrators were quite normal some years before, but did not happen, even after the police were heavily prepared.

Tens of thousands of demonstrators, the most of them supporting labour unions, left or democratic parties or groups, gathered peacefully in Taksim Square and the streets surrounding the place.
