    May Day clashes and anger over food prices

    Post  ElIndio on Sat May 03, 2008 3:20 am

    ISTANBUL (AFP) - Police firing pepper gas and water cannons clashed with union activists in Istanbul on Thursday, as workers around the world made soaring food prices their May Day battle cry.

    Clashes erupted in the Turkish capital as hundreds of police surrounded the main square to stop a planned rally.

    Thirty-eight people, including eight police officers, were injured, and 530 were arrested, the governor of Istanbul said at a press conference.

    Volatile crowds also staged rallies in the Philippines' capital of Manila and Indonesia's Jakarta, carrying signs demanding "Jobs, Justice, Food" and "Lower Food Prices Now."
