ISTANBUL TURKEY - JUNE 18: (TURKEY OUT) Demonstrators face Ataturk Cultural Center during a silent protest at Taksim Square, on June 18, 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey. Erdem Gunduz acquired the nickname 'The Standing Man' following his silent eight hour vigil outside the cultural centre where a giant portrait of the country's founder, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, hangs. Gunduz has become the new symbol of anti-goverment protests and his actions have sparked similar silent protests around the country. (Photo by Burak Kara/Getty Images)
