(en) Turkey, May Day Resistance in Ästanbul (Devrimci AnarÅist Faaliyet's declaration)

Date Sat, 04 May 2013 00:03:25 +0300

Last three year, turkish state gave permission to the workers union to âcelebrateâ May Day in Taksim where is one of the symbol square for revolutionary people because of its place in Bloody May Day history in 1977. Turkish state forbid Taksim Square for May Day this year same as three years before. During this âlegalâ May Day years, state tried to make people forget the real meaning of May Day. We know that May Day is the rebel day of the oppressed ones, workers and revolutionary people. It is the day we raise the anger against state and capitalists. This year state changed its strategy for May Day. The governor of Ästanbul ban all transportation in the city, set up control points for the ones who wants to protest the situation. ---- The executers of the state and capitalists are thinking that they can effort to forbid our liberty.

We were on streets, not just for the restricted Taksim Square and illegallized May Day. We were on streets against the powers who are stealing our lives, against the bosses who impose us slavery, against the state which is unjustness itsself. We were on streets with our pancard âTo Revolution with Anarchist Actionâ as same as the past May Dayâs.

The governor of Ästanbul, secratary of the state and prime minister declared the prohibition for May Day with a defend of âurban gentrificationâ of Taksim Square. The busses, metros, metrobus and ferries were canceled. Although these cancellation, thousands were in ÅiÅli in front of DÄSK(Biggest Wokers Unions) Central Office building for preparing to walk to Taksim.

With the slogans in Turkish and Kurdish âWe are in May Day Square on May Dayâ, âViva May Dayâ action was started. Police attack the unions, organizations, political parties and people who tried to go Taksim. Many people have been injured by poliÃe who used gas bombs, compressed water and plastic bullets. After poliÃe attack, everybody gathered in front of DÄSK building again.

Police prevent the ambulances to reach DÄSK building. Police blockaded the building and attack with the gas bombs inside the building. Police terror was not just in ÅiÅli in DÄSK building. Police attack people brutally in BeÅiktaÅ, MecidiyekÃy and in other parts of Ästanbul.

Tens of people have been injured during the day because of police terror. Two of these injuries are dangerous. 72 people have been taken into custody.

Anarchists were on streest also in the other cities of Turkey for May Day.

In spite of stateâs terror, the fire that our comrades lighted in 1886 will expand in streets in every May Day. The anger of the oppressed ones will live against gas bombs, plastic bullets, custodies and arrests and all prohibitons.
