Militarist Ideology in Action Again Authoritarian and oppressive
ideology, which feels its existence and power in every field of life,
also carries on preventing free thought and free life in universities
-No matter whatever political thought they have- all the students are
reacting against the actions of the Dean (at the same time a retired
colonel!!!) of Kocaeli University, Communication Faculty.
Starting from the first time he was missioned, being
declared as "unwanted person" (persona non gratia) among the
students with his oppressive attitude and militarist way of
thinking, the Dean (colonel!) is continuing his service (for the
militarist ideology) by transforming the university into barracks,
students into the soldiers.
After inspecting classes one by one, with his harsh and
threatening attitude against the lecturers, seating students in rows
one by one and centered regularly! in the exams, the dean (colonel)
has now banned exchange of basic needs such as rubber, sharpener,
nib and pencils. The dean (colonel) and the adminstration are
showing their attitude against the libertarian thought with the
investigations they are holding against the students following one
another and with the punishments (like rustication) they impose.
We have protested the adminstration by giving empty papers
in examinations and -during the exam- we have explained to our student
friends why we have done this. As long as the adminstration doesn't
change its attitude, as libertarian students, we will continue to react
against such events and protest.
What's next? Will they force us to cut our hair and beards
wearing khaki colored cloths or will they rape our living spaces by
placing cameras to the classes, garden?
We cannot know? But if we stay silent, unless we have any
effort to save our universities -which must be fields in which free
thought should grow up- from the sovereign ideology, they will carry
on oppressing us.

Anarchy in Hereke*

Stay with rebel

* [Ed. note: 'Anarchy in Hereke' is a group of libertarian&anarchist
minded students from Hereke, Kocaeli]
