Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is scheduled to meet with a group of 11 people regarding the Gezi Park protests today at 4 p.m.

The group consists of artists, academics and students, Anatolia news agency reported, without revealing the names.

However Taksim Platform, which started the protests 16 days ago, announced that they were not notified of a meeting and the group “does not represent” the protestors across the country.

Erdoğan’s talks are set to come after clashes between police and protesters at Istanbul’s Taksim Square lasted into the early hours of June 12.
