To Taksim To Win

The Turkish state has once again closed Taksim Square for the millions on 1st of May which it used to ''open'' a couple of years ago. It attacked with its batons, water cannons, tear gas bombs and plastic bullets the people who wanted to be in Taksim Square on the 1st of May for their slain brothers and sisters. It has injured and taken many workers, revolutionists and oppressed ones into custody; it has not allowed ambulances to enter for the wounded... Last year, the Turkish State attacked the resisters as it did on previous forbidden 1st of Mays. But what happened that day didn't discourage the resisters, conversely the anger of the 1st of May sparked a revolt.

To Taksim To Win


The Turkish state has once again closed Taksim Square for the millions on 1st of May which it used to ''open'' a couple of years ago. It attacked with its batons, water cannons, tear gas bombs and plastic bullets the people who wanted to be in Taksim Square on the 1st of May for their slain brothers and sisters. It has injured and taken many workers, revolutionists and oppressed ones into custody; it has not allowed ambulances to enter for the wounded... Last year, the Turkish State attacked the resisters as it did on previous forbidden 1st of Mays. But what happened that day didn't discourage the resisters, conversely the anger of the 1st of May sparked a revolt.

Days after the 1st of May, the roads which lead to Taksim were shut down by the police for the second time. The government wanted to shut down Taksim to the resisters who fight against State terror, police brutality and capitalist exploitation; who stand up for their lives, for freedom. But it couldn't succeed this time; the anger which began with the 1st of May grew larger and larger on 31st of May, and turned into a rebellion with hundreds of thousands of people filling up the streets. Even with the same brutality, with hours of clashes the police couldn't succeed; they couldn't close the streets or Taksim to resisters. On that day, it was called to account for the forbidden 1st of Mays, for the slain workers of '77, for the revolutionists we've lost during all these years, for poverty, for injustice...

With this soul of revolt, the workers increased their fight against carrying out subcontracting work, against bosses, against work murders, against capitalism. They organized strikes and occupations against bosses who stole their bread, against capitalism which stole their lives.They occupied their factories and created their own producing areas, they trusted self-organizations, not syndicates. With the soul of revolt they took direct action, they increased the struggle day by day.

On these days, like each year, the State says it has forbidden Taksim Square, closed it to workers by making up many excuses, it offers different locations for the 1st of May, it tries to isolate Taksim from the anger of the 1st of May. But it forgets something, the oppressed ones which it didn't count until this day, and who are winning with their own organizations.

As always, we will be in Taksim on the 1st of May this year. Despite the police barricades, police brutality and State pressure, we will fight and won't back out from Taksim. Centuries before these days, with the faith in our comrades who were killed in 1886, we will be on the streets with anger of knowing that there are still workers and oppressed ones are being killed.

We will burn the fire of revolt with Mehmet, Ali İsmail, Abdullah, Hasan Ferit, Ahmet, Medeni, Ethem and Berkin this year. We know that starting a revolt is winning the revolt! To Taksim on the 1st of May to win!

Statement on Wednesday’s horrific events that have been written by anarchist and anti-authoritarian groups; in the midst of the tragedy, there is some concrete hope that us, the anarchists, are taking the events seriously enough, thinking and discussing them openly, at last. A vital first step. [- A translator for Occupied London]

Under the sun of June; the riots which have started in Taksim and have spread everywhere; have turned into the September riots in Ankara. The wind of the resistance which has been blowing for many days in ODTÜ and Tuzluçayır, have been saluted from all around the region, near and far. The ones who shine in the sky, the ones who are waving the flags of rebellion, who have been carrying the passion of revolt and who turn winds to storm, welcomed September with resistance. Salute to all who resist!

The authority and his law enforcement officers has murdered six of our brothers. The pain in our hearts is so deep. But they have also been a source of life for our struggle. Now the squares, the streets are resonating with the name of Ahmet... Resisting with his name, Ahmet.

imageBuilding the Revolution in Greece Apr 04 by Joshua Stephens 0 comments

Below I reproduce excerpts from a recent report at Truthout by Joshua Stephens on the constructive efforts by Greek anarchists to create alternatives to capitalism and the nation-state. The approaches they have been developing since the uprising in 2008 are similar to those proposed by Alexander Berkman based on his experiences during the Russian Revolution. Directly democratic popular assemblies formed the basis of the anarchist collectives during the Spanish Revolution, and were later championed by Murray Bookchin. Stephens refers to Colin Ward, whose ground breaking article on anarchism as a theory of organization is included in Volume Two of Anarchism: A Documentary History of Libertarian Ideas. Anarchist alternatives to capitalism and hierarchical organization are well documented in all three volumes of Anarchism: A Documentary History of Libertarian Ideas, now on sale at AK Press.
