Yesterday, Erdogan's government had the offices of opposition media, Today's Zaman, raided by large numbers of police.
Yahoo News also reports that police fired plastic bullets at anti-Erdogan protestors today in Istanbul.
Protestors are upset about the raids, and state bullying, of yet another main opposition media outlet in Turkey.
Police used large amounts of tear gas, water cannon and plastic bullets to disperse around 500 people clapping in protest, an AFP photographer at the scene reported.
Before midnight on Friday, police also stepped in by using tear gas and water cannon to move away a hundreds-strong crowd that had formed outside the newspaper following a court order placing the media business under administration.
One might almost imagine that an increase in adherence to Islam, as Erdogan has brought back to Turkey after a long successful period of secularism, seems commensurate with increased intolerance of opposition, and inversely so to diversity of opinion and personal liberty.
