Yesterday "black/red/green solidarity" group including anarchists,
anti-authoritarians and anti-militarists planted cactus in the garden
of Istanbul-Taksim Hilton Hotel to protest NATO, police raids and arrests
against anti-NATO people. Turkish state has planted 200.000 flowers as a
part of preparations for NATO summit, this was why "cactus planting"
action was held for in front of the hotel which will host NATO people.
Right after the action, the group distributed newsletters in downtown
calling people to Black Block (Kara Blok) on 27-28-29 of June.
Today a group of 8-10 people including anti-authoritarians, anti-militarists,
peace activists and anarchists did another action called "Shroud does
not have pocket" [this is an Anatolian proverb].
This action was held in front of Istanbul-Sabanci
Towers (belonging to one of the greatest capitalist
corporates of Turkey) to protest NATO summit sponsor
firms and ties between capitalism and NATO. The
activists tried to give the shroud having a green
pocket to the security personel, at first they
rejected to take, later as it was said to be a "gift"
they took it :) After reading their declaration
titled "SHROUD DOES NOT HAVE A POCKET!" the group left

away to drink a glass of tea.

A FNB activity is planned for Sunday in front of
Besiktas McDonalds. Some other actions/activities
may be held next week long before NATO Summit is
held on 28-29 of June.

And on 27th of June, Sunday is day of the greatest
demo/meeting in Istanbul! Waiting for comrades all

Anarchists, anti-authoritarians, anti-militarists,
libertarians around Turkey are organizing these
activities under a coordination group named
"Libertarian Coordination Against NATO" and be
ready for a BlackBlock/KaraBlok! Already 10 different
anarchist groups/collectives/circles/periodicals
signed the BlackBlock/KaraBlok declaration.

For more details see
Libertarian Coordination's website:
It includes info in about 20 different languages!!
