(en) Turkey, Ankara: Mehmet still Loves Peace/Baris [tr]]

Date Sat, 10 Dec 2005 15:56:36 +0200

Today [09.12.2005], in Ankara, a press release [action] was held
and postcards were sent from the post office for solidarity with
the conscientious/total objector Mehmet Tarhan** who is a prisoner
in Sivas Military Prison. Anarchists, anti-militarists, gay-lesbians
and feminists attended to the action. A civil police group also
"accompanied" the action. Solidarity activities in which about 20
people were present started at noon, 12:30 with sending postcards
from the Kizilay Post-office. (From here 16 postcards were sent.)
Later, walking to the Yüksel Street, the press release text "which
did not take much interest of the press" was read with the accompany
of slogans and placards.Some of the placards carried by
the group were: "Mehmet will not be Mehmetcik*",
"Refuse Resist Say No", "He did not go to the Army,
did not Wear a uniform, Freedom for Mehmet Tarhan"...
The action ended about 13:05.


*["Mehmetcik" is a phrase used for Turkish soldiers.]
** [Ed. note: 9th of december was an international day of solidarity
with Mehmet Tarhan who is also an anarchist.]
