      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

First of all I must remind that although the state has explained they've 
postponed F-type prison project, they didn't make a "legal" declaration etc. 
SO, the death-fasting continues! The negotiation between the state and 
hunger strikers is going on. Today is 56th day on hunger strike and 30 of 
death-fasters feel worser, they've lost their conscious!

On Tuesday (12th of Dec.), F-type cell protesters met with police violence 
in Ankara. The demonstration suddenly turned into a battle between police 
and protesters because of unwaited attack of pigs. The pigs were angry as 
two of them were killed in Istanbul by leftist militants (one day before the 
attack of leftists, pigs killed a leftist militant during he was hanging a 
banner although he didn't have any weapon!). Lots of demonstrators were 
beaten and 66 of them were arrested. The activists also had to fight with 
grey-wolves (pigs did not prevent them and even "helped"!). As comrades in 
Ankara told no anarchist was arrested; an anarcho-punk from Ankara tells 
that anarchists were quite active during the riots. Windows of some 
capitalist shops, some cars etc. were destroyed! But as it happens quite 
often some leftists were trying to "control" the crowd, looking for some 
kind of authority etc. Later grey-wolves (fascists) attacked a socialist 
party center which was full of protestors, and pigs arrested the ones 
"inside" the building! Protests also continued in other cities, in Van 200 
people were arrested. In Istanbul, fascists fought with leftists and 
anarchists (AGF) in a university. Four anti-fascist were injured, among them 
one AGF member.

On the other side the pigs started demonstrations with guns on their hands! 
Starting from Istanbul on Tuesday, thousands of pigs in different cities are 
demonstaring to protest hunger strikers, mercy for torturer policemen, and 
threating with using gun on protestors... As u may guess Turkish police 
force have a quite similiar manner with grey-wolves (fascists), without any 
exaggeration about half of the pigs vote for fascists (MHP).
