Turkey protester: 'Beauty pageants and cooking on TV'
PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan says four days of anti-government protests do not constitute a Turkish Spring.
At a news conference before a trip to Morocco, he said the protests were organised by extremists and accused the opposition of provoking "his citizens".
The protests initially targeted plans to build on a treasured Istanbul park.
They have spread into nationwide anti-government unrest.
Protester and architect Deniz Pasha is also critical of the Turkish media: "While there is a revolution happening, they are broadcasting beauty pageants and cooking shows on television".
