Erdoğan visited Mersin, Adana and Ankara. In Adana, he stated that "If you have something to say, if you are environmentalist, there is an environmentalist prime minister in this country. So you can come and talk to the prime minister. Believe me, a majority of the protesters have never ever visited Taksim Gezi Park before. We plan to build a better place than Taksim Gezi Park."
Hüseyin Avni Mutlu (Mayor of İstanbul) stated that "Personal mistakes or extremities sometimes require to offer an apology. I'm really sorry."

"The family of Mustafa Sarı, denied the claims that Mustafa was thrown down the bridge by the protestors. This is a speculation. We are quite sad about our son. He was very tired and he accidentially fell down the bridge late at night, which is also confirmed by his colleagues. Please, do not use my son for your own benefit." (Radikal)
