A decision was made to demolish 95 of 112 illegal buildings and to rasp 17 of them in Uzungöl, one of the most popular tourist spots of the Black Sea region in Çaykara district, Trabzon province, Turkey. Municipal teams moved to Çaykara early on December 23 in order to implement the decision to demolish the illegal structures.

After learning that the municipal teams were on their way, the owners of the illegal building structures closed the Trabzon–Çaykara road to transportation by forming a roadblock with their cars.

Police dispersed the crowds who denied them access to the district and many people were detained.

After the tension at night, the demolishing process began in the early hours of the following morning.
