They were going to turn the park into a monument for the Ottomon Empire? That is contrary to what I have heard
I doubt there would be such protests over a simple monument...

From what I heard the protest was about the park being developed into a shopping mall... You know, the thing which there exists a million others in Istanbul alone.
