Gay, anarchist, and total objector Mehmet Tarhan is taken into
custody by the police force in Izmir, while he was staying in a
hotel and sent to military bureau. Now Mehmet Tarhan is insisting
on his civil disobedience action and if necesary, he will start
hunger strike.At Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir groups are formed to
suppart Mehmet Tarhan and are working for organising a big compaign.
One of the discussion points nowadays is to make total objection
announcements totally. The results of our discussions and content of
campaigns will be announced at anarchist and anti-militarist websites.
Military and civic fascist organisations have started to attack Kurds,
trying to lynch leftist groups at the streets, even the bureaus of DEHAP
(a legal political party for the rights of Kurds) and of leftist groups
are shown as places to be attacked. All these reactionist acts are
legitimised by a news that two children aged 12 have tried to burn the
Turkish flag at Mersin.

Anarchists and antimilitarists are also affected by this racist wave.
Mehmet Tarhan who is taken into custody will be sent to a military unit in
a day (now we learned that he is at his way), and will be forced to serve
as a soldier.

As far as we are informed about the discussions held in the bureau,
Turkish military force is determined to attack at all total and
conscientious objectors living at Turkey, and make us obey the rules of
them. So, we as antimilitarist people are expecting to confront with a
very difficult period. It is very likely to experince mass trials

For this reason we are calling all the anarchist, antiauthoritarian and
antimilitarist groups living in other countries to arrange actions and
campaigns to repress the Turkish state.If we can’t resist against the
wave, the anarcisht and antimilitarist movement of this
country will loose its effect.

In order to prevent this danger, all the antimilitarist and
antiauthoritarian groups gathered together as a first step of a long
campaing.We expect from our comrades to support and act with us.

We know that they can’t stop us by imprisoning, killing or ignoring.

Revolution is anywhere, and nothing will suppress it!
