Turkey, Mayday 2010 - The Highest Revolutionary Commitment

"Those who entered the square by letting the police to search themselves and stay their hunger in the corners of Mcdonald's during and after the meeting became the most concrete example of being distracted by the state's blessing"
The social opposition which turned Taksim Square and the surrounding area into hell in the MayDays of 2007-2008-2009 is almost faded when the state opened the Square after 32 years. In the past three years, we- the anarchists who managed to convert the streets of Istanbul to resistance area, are far from feeling surprised. Because we know that; the "Taksim Square fetishism" was just an illusion created by the state. On that day, a treacherous game played in the Taksim square which was surrounded by police barricades, scanned by cameras inch by inch, monitored by helicopters all the time. Masters and so called slaves collaborated and they celebrated a holidays with all their spiritlessness. What holidays are they talking about? The workers who had a symbolic claim on 8-hour working time were executed by state 130 years ago. Who’s working for 8 hours for today? A shipyard worker, a textile worker or a cashier in Burger King? But we’re dying. We’re still dying, we’re still slaves. The anarchists and revolutionaries who were murdered in 1886, 1977, 1996 spilled their blood to raise the rebellion's fire; not to be mentioned in a day of reconciliation. Today, even the powers see no harm in adopting this holiday. This carnival organized by the state itself is combined with the left opposition's "achievements" perception and this scene increasingly resembles a parody. We have no role in this spoof!
