The description for the video reads:

Protesters charged towards Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Dolmabahce office on Sunday night on a bulldozer.
Chasing police through the streets followed by crowds from the north side of Besiktas Stadium, the bulldozer pushed back lines of riot police until it reached within 500 metres of the office of Erdogan, who is currently on a trip to North Africa.
On Dolmabahce Road, police hit back firing rounds of teargas grenades causing injured protesters to flee to the nearby Bezmialem Mosque. The mosque has become a centre for treating protesters in Besiktas, which has seen the most intense clashes over the weekend in Istanbul.
