After yesterday's huge anti-NATO demo, NATO Summit has begun today in
Istanbul. Yesterday the number Black Block was about 300 people and there
was no clash or "violence". Today's event was planned nearby red zone in
Mecidiyekoy area early in the morning at about 9:30. It was quite risky to
be there as the cops were ready to arrest and attack with gas bombs and some
other things. Some of our comrades went back to their hometowns after
yesterday's demo, some (anarcho-pacifists) choose not going there and some
could not venture the risk of arrest, so that the number of Black Block
anarchists was about 60 or so.

According to the latest news anarchists were among those who have gathered
in Mecidiyekoy and cops have brutally attacked to the protestors using gas
bombs. By chance none of our comrades are reported to be arrested. After the
cops' attack, the group splitted away but later gathered again in smaller
groups. Clashes and some actions went on for a few hours around
Taksim-Istiklal Street and Unkapani area, for now the environment is
reported to be silent. An activist comrade says "he has never faced such
kindda a terrible gas before". Comrades are waiting for the action which
will be held at 20:00. (17:00 - 28.06.2004)
