VICE News correspondent Tim Pool is on the ground in the Okmeydani neighbourhood of Istanbul, Turkey, where protestors are clashing with police after the funeral of 15-year-old Berkin Elvan. Berkin was out buying bread last June when a tear-gas canister struck his skull during a brutal police crackdown against demonstrations in Istanbul. He died on March 11, 2014, after spending 269 days in a coma. As news of his death spread, the city’s streets filled with mourners and protesters shouting anti-government slogans in a massive outpouring of grief and rage against police brutality and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's increasingly authoritarian government.
