Press release about the ongoing revolt in Turkey

International Solidarity against statist repression in Turkey

Since several days, a large scale popular movement is growing against the AKP state in Turkey. The start of this movement take roots in the struggle against urban gentrification in Istambul, and more specifically against the destruction of the Gezi parc for the benefit of real estates developpers.
But the uprising take a more general dimension, and this is all the reactionnary politic of the governement who is denounced (attacks against women by restriction acces to abortion, to the pill, attacks against secularism, against public liberties in the name of a politicp-religious ideology, attacks against already thin social rights).
This same governement is also pursuing a policy of state terrorism against kurdish people, against the workers and student movement, with several thousand of political prisonners nowadays.
Against him, the anarchist movement, and more widely the worker movement, the feminist and LGBT movement from Turkey take all the part they can to the popular revolt.
But in the same time, the reactionnary « secularist » movement, nationalist or fascist, are trying to instrumentalise this uprising to weaken the peace process enagegd by the governement with the kurdish guerilla, and to punish the givernement for its takeover of the traditional « kemalist » sector of the army. This logic of nationalist and fascist instrumentalisation is for now kept at bay by the large presence of the turkish and kurdish revolutionnary movement.
The popular movement was the target of a brutal and bloody repression from the state, but it did not vanish. It may be the catalyst of a big scale uprising which started to spread in other cities of the country (Ankara, Izmir, Antalya).

The anarchist group coordination (France) commends the popular revolt and assure the libertarian comrade in Turquie of its entire solidarity against state repression, but also against fascist and nationalist tendancies

Istanbul Yenikapi Rally that was realized last Sunday is an important example showing the extent of political mobilization in Turkey, happening in the last month. The rally, which was joined by five million people and the leaders of opposition parties (except HDP), showing "unity of the protectors of democracy", actually had multiple messages targeting both domestic and foreign politics. During the coup process, which can be described as the clashing of power groups inside the state, it looks like president Erdogan and AKP Government managed to talk different political groups into their "politics for coup process".

The fire that appeared in the coalmine in Manisa-Soma on 13th of May, became one of the biggest massacres in these lands. As a result of the fire, hundreds of coal miners were poisoned by intense levels of carbon monoxide. The number of workers who have died increases hour by hour. The Minister for Energy, the Minister for Labour and the Prime Misinter have tried to hide the real number of the miners who have died while declaring that “it was a sad work accident”. The Prime Minister has declared that “This kind of accident could happen anytime.” [Türkçe] [ελληνικά]

Class war and imperialism have deepened in Greece. The Greek working class has been subjected to further attacks from the local and imperialist ruling classes. To receive the latest ‘bailout’ from the IMF and the ECB, the Greek state was told by the German, French and US ruling classes to again reduce pensions, to fully privatise public utilities, and to again cut social spending and wages.

If the reaction to the police killing had been limited to skirmishes between cops and a few anarchists, however, the Greek events would have literally burned themselves out after a few days. What is interesting about the current situation is precisely how it grew into something larger, expanding from street battles to the occupation of secondary schools and university faculties, and showing not only combativeness but a sense of initiative and imagination, as in the dramatic seizure of television and radio stations by protesters who took control of the microphones and cameras...

The following article is to appear soon in "Red & Black Revolution" no.13 (magazine of the WSM, Ireland). It examines the recent evolution of Turkish society, after the 1980 coup, and how it expresses in the current conflict between the military and the Islamist parties that is nothing but the conflict within sectors of the bourgeoisie for hegemony.
