As it usually happened - it was NGOs, leftist
political parties/groups and students participating in
today's (22 December) anti-war demo in Ankara-Abdi
Ipekci Park. Most of the crowd -which was less than
5000- were young people.

Anarchist group carrying black, black-red flags and a
banner with broken rifle and cirled A "WE WON'T BE A
PART OF IT!" (meaning the war) were at most 40 people.
We may not say that it was a good demo in means of the
number of demonstrators (for anarchists); but it is
also useless to say that this was the fault of those
(footbal fan) anarchists who had left earlier with
their black-red flags for Genclerbirligi match... 

We had distributed 750 leaflets of our own anti-war
manifest (titled "Perfect World"); and some slogans
were "We won't be a part of it!", "Anarchist Rebel
Against the War", "Land Comun Freedom Love Love
Liberty" and in addition "to support" the other groups
which were shouting their slogan of "We won't be
soldier of US", we shouted "We won't be soldier of
anyone". Although the frozen wheather had cut off our
voices, one trumpet helped us to increase our emotion.

The demo which was fully under the control of the cops
finished without any "event".
