(en) Turkey, Ankara, 11 September* Demo in Ankara [tr]

Date Tue, 20 Sep 2005 17:29:19 +0300

On the 25th anniversary of the 12th of September 1980
fascist military coup, demonstrations were organized
in Ankara, Izmir and Mersin with the demand of trying
those who took power by the coup. In Ankara meeting,
there were (leftist) parties, organizations and
trade unions except coward DISK which had decided not
to come to the square in the last minute, pleading
Kurdish movement's policies not state's. 16 anarchists
marched with circle A banner in the meeting, among
about 3 thousand demonstrators. Comparing with previous
marches it was not a brilliant one for anarchists.
Some slogans that were chanted by generally silent
group were: "Killer State Will be Smashed", "Killer
State Killer Army", "Rebel Revolt Anarchy". About
the end we have met with 2 French comrades who had
attended "No Border" activities in Greece. The meeting
finished without any event at 15:00, right after the
speeches were made in the square following a march
from Ankara Main Railway Station to the Sihhiye Square.

On the other hand, as it's known, the demo in Istanbul
was banned and postponed for 1 month by the governorship.
Arresting 53 people, cops have brutally attacked to the
press release in Kadiköy which was held to protest this
fascist obstruction remaining from 12th of September.

*[Ed. Note: The actual date of the coup is 12th of September
but the meetings were organized on 11th of Sunday to have
more people in the demonstations.]
