Five Turkish trade unions will stage nationwide protests on Monday against police' latest crackdown on demonstrators in Istanbul's Taksim square, Local Daily News reported Sunday.
The campaign is organized by the Confederation of Progressive Trade Unions, the Confederation of Public Sector Trade Unions, the Turkish Doctors' Union, the Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects and the Turkish Dentists Union.
Confederation of Progressive Trade Unions General Secretary Kani Beko said "we will take to the streets with our power of production."
Turkish police stormed Taksim Square again on Saturday night, firing tear gas and water cannons on protesters who have been on anti-government demonstration for 20 days.
The heavy-handed measure to evacuate Gezi Park came only an hour after Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's warning to protesters which give them one day to leave the park.
