The main activist group behind Turkey's mass street protests last year plans to file an "unprecedented" class action lawsuit against the government over deaths and injuries, local media reported on Sunday.The June 2013 protests started as a small environmentalist movement to save an Istanbul park from being razed and snowballed into a nationwide wave of protests against Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who critics say has become increasingly authoritarian.The activist group includes prominent civil society figures who led the protests that left at least seven people dead and some 8,000 others injured, according to the Turkish Medical Association.
