(en) Turkey; the Value(less) of Right to Vote (tr)

      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

The following is the translation of a leaflet which
was distributed by anarchists in Ankara University
(DTCF) before turkish elections on 3rd of November.


All of the governance lovers both from left&right have
redesigned their packages shaping themselves as a new
kind of product for the election competition.

"Silent mass"es which are dispersed here&there are
being forced to show up their colors and be numerical
values to let the "staff" jump over the (election)

Egos that are puffing themselves up with the belief of
possibility to be selected, with their "generous" but
terrible discourses, are in a hurry to courage the
undecided who look like an army of ignorant
sleepwalkers to them.

These Casanovas -although they succeed in being a
demander and a threater at the same time- are liars
whom we like so much as (turkish) society. 

The basic principle of electing game is to make the
one holding the ballot-paper (soon you will also face
it) believe that he/she is the dominant factor in
electing action facing a rich amount of variation and

Power to vote is a shape of freedom which was granted
to you with the highest permission of His Majesty
(state) and it is untouchable, un-interferable,
un-debatable; it is used in order to re-build up state

All of the political discourses, start to transform
into discoursal hegemonies homogenizing the society as
early as possible; and those nice missionaries who had
stepped to save the country seek to be professionals
of high degrees being crazy about their dignity.

Don't countenance to these new knight candidates of
the dominance mechanism that is based on the
acceptation of ruled-ruler hierarchy as a vital
reality. Don't hold the cape of heroic ghosts.


(*) In Turkey the election barrage to enter the
parliamentary is 10 %.
