To all the earth and the comrades of conscience

On 6th of January 2010, in Ankara, the capital city of Turkey, a press release was arranged on Yuksel Street, for solidarity with conscience objector Enver Aydemir.

On 6th of January 2010, in Ankara, the capital city of Turkey, a press release was arranged on Yuksel Street, for solidarity with conscience objector Enver Aydemir.

The Agile Police Force, waiting in the permitted explanation to finish, took the group into a chamber and asked everybody for their IDs. The police normally would not ask for ID in such a “constitutional” and “unsevere” and the “citizen” activist has no such obligation ask to inform the police before a press release. And the police’s asking for all the participants of the demonstration for IDs, who are against war and violance and objecting the imprisonment of a conscience objector is for the purpose of guaranteeing arresting and following imprisonment.

Some 100 members of Agile Police Force who surrounded the activists, mostly composing of anarchists attacked on them with all of their power within a few seconds. The violance, sexual assault and indignity ongoing by the road, all went on through the custodial prison –where they stayed more than 20 hours- and courthouse.

The police accused the activists for resisting them and alienating the public from military obligation and assault. All the activists, after being subject to heavy physical pressure in the police station, were forced to sign the affirmations which were already prepared by the police itself. In response to this treatment, the activists preferred to use their right to silence. At the same night, as the activists were under custody, this unlawful and arbitral treatment and the violance of the police has been protested in Ankara. And the imprisoned anti-militarists, after being imprisoned for a night, were brought to the Ankara Courthouse. And in the Courthouse, they were hugged by anti-militarists, feminists and their families with a strong support. They supported them by slogans and applaueses.

The prisoners were first brought to judicial medicine and then to the attorney for affirmation. As anarchist Volkan Sevinç transferred to the court for the demand of being arrested, 22 of the activists were released. The case was suddenly done. To Volkan, the case was not so much different then an enactment. Since the hieararchy from the judge to the police officers had already made up their decisions; They were decisive about arresting Volkan. The judge acceded the press explanation as an “unlawful” meeting and Volkan Sevinç with administrating that meeting and with a gun. Besides these, they have decided that he had the chance of befogging the evidences.

And as an evidence they were claiming a knife though he refused that it does not belong to him and for that he refused body search. And the law of the power, who claims that he “managed” the illegal meeting, impounded Volkan into Ankara No. 1 Prison.

As Volkan being taken to prison vehicle his comrades and supporters shouted slogans. Everybody in there shouted out that they all walk shoulder to shoulder against fascism and the salvation shall be altogether but not alone. What was that made Volkan releasing his strong fist and chilling everybody around is the slogan of “Rebellion, Revolution, Anarchy”. As a result, Volkan Sevinç was imprisoned into the prison of the power because he rejected the death and killing. This fact tells so clearly that the power is together with death and violance but not with life; and democracy is just a dishonest lie; and it tells more clearer and beter than more than hundreds of pages of a book.

And in the following day, on 8th of January 2010, Volkan’s comrades and his supporters protested the situation. All the same were written on the banners: The Consciences Can’t Be Imprisoned, Volkan sevinç Is Liberalizing”. On the banner in Ankara’s press release there was the sign “Freedom For Anti-Militarist Prisoners”. On the other hand, another person in Istanbul expressed his conscience objection in the same action. And again in the same action a person had a heart attack due to the assault of the police. He is under intensive care right now.

On the lands we used to live in, violance disturbs each of us all the time. The conditions are not bearable so more and forcing our souls. In this psycological and conventional war every thing becomes clearer day after day. The regnants of this country still share the power with a insincerety, which was defined by the anarchists before a 100 years ago.

The war, which has been started by the capitalism centuries ago against the existence and souls of the Anarchists, Kurds, Homosexuals, Transgenders and Gypsies and all other individuals which contradict with the typology of the "subject citizen" created by the power itself, keeps going on with all its nastyness and tricks.

The war and militarism are neither military obligation nor shooting a gun. So, against such a social structure, in such a period, the only thing that should be done is to refuse the death. That is why Volkan Sevinç is in prison right now; for he rejected death and killing.

The aim of this text is to call you –for the ones of who did not give their consciences- for sticking with our imprisoned comrade Volkan. Now, we need solidarity more than ever. Our primary need is the action support for this period. To show that Volkan’s conscience is not alone at all.
