Anarchists from Malatya (an Eastern Anatolia city) showed their existence 
with attending to the peace demo in Malatya which was organized by AntiWar 
Democracy Platform. After Mayday 2002, it was the second demo in which they 
attended with their own banners. The demonstration started at 13:30.

in the square we shouted as "we will not be soldiers of america", 
"conscience objection is our power", "death to american imperialism", "long

5 and today 12; in future we'll be more than that. But not in the way of 
leftists; we'll exist in the way of liberty and with the philosophy of
