(en) Turkey, Kurdistan region: Anarchist periodical "Qijika Res" (tr)

Date Thu, 16 Dec 2010 16:12:02 +0200

Qijika Res is published in Van (Turkey- Kurdistan region*). Its first issue was out in September, and the second one is recently out. It's unique being the first anarchist periodical published in Kurdistan region by a local (Kurdish) anarchist collective. Most of the articles are in Turkish but the second issue includes a number of Kurdish
articles too. ---- Here is the English translation of its introduction: "QIJIKA REÅ journal aims to be a path of a heterodox freedom policy in Kurdistan region. The whole claim we introduce is to accomplish being a polyphonic native platform of the voices which have been excluded from the political space, of which boundaries are determined by State, Nation and Religion. One of the important grounds our Journal positioning on is to understand and make visible the anti-system movements at the non-Europran geographies, which have been made invisible or ignored by Eurocentric modern political theories.

The detour of post-colonial Anarchism,which problematizes the dominant,
colonialist characteristic of ideological luggage in light of the
post-colonial theories on which the identity policies relies, which
occurs at the postcolonial geographies ,and which is nourished from
the hybrid horizon of the social movements, identifies our route. The
only river that feeds the bed of the Journal is not an Anarchist one
without pebbles and sand. The resistance policies based on fight
experiences of Feminism, Anti-militarism, Libertarian Socialism,
Autonomy and Post-Colonialism will be the other components to feed our
discourse and universal sense. As politically conseptualizing our
single experience, loudly asking the questions which gnaw our
conscious, and knitting a perpetual interdependence between dissimilar
grassroots will be our main departure point. Giving our ears for every
voice that sounds inside and outside, running away from the corridors
of the soulless academic productions and sitting on the sharing table
of a lyrical theory will be the principals which compose our catechism
of freedom. Our whole purpose is to manage to become a candle
illumining its bottom rather than being a mirror that reflects the

territory nor as a geographical region in Turkey. In here it defines
the region in which the majority of local residents are Kurdish.]
