Having made a call to Taksim Square for May Day celebrations, some professional organizations and labor unions started to gather in front of Cevahir Shopping Mall in Şişli at around 9.30 a.m.

Waiting along the street closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic, police officers intervened in the workers after they walked for 100 meters. Five people from the Construction-Work (İnşaat-İş) Unions and two people from the Revolutionary Solution (Devrimci Çözüm) have been detained.

Sharing a massage on its Twitter account, the Struggle Union (Mücadele Birliği) has announced that its reporter Serpil Ünal who went to Taksim Square to follow the May Day has been taken into custody.

Seven members of the Federation of Socialist Youth Associations (SGDF), who started marching from Barbaros Avenue in Beşiktaş towards Taksim, have also been detained.
