Turkey Mine Protest

Protesters gathered to denounce a controversial gold mine, under construction, owned by a Canada-based company in the mountainous region. Environmentalists say close to 200,000 trees were cut down to make way for the mine while the use of cyanide to extract gold will cause serious environmental damage. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
