The protests which erupted after a violent police crackdown in Turkey will continue, Taksim Solidarity organization said on Saturday.

Responding to a call from Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to end the demonstrations, the group, who had been camping in İstanbul’s Gezi Park to oppose a government plan to redevelop the park, said in a written statement that they will "continue their resistance."

The statement came after the prime minister issued his final call to the demonstrators and asked for Gezi Park to be cleared of “troublemakers” within 24 hours.
