An investigation was started by Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor's office about our newspaper related to articles "Both Arrival and Departure of State is From Fear", "Banned Until Further Order", and "Recreating Life" in the 30. issue of our newspaper published on December 2015 with the caption "Banning Everything". The lawsuit following the investigation ended after almost a year of trials.

On the summary judgment yesterday, the court sentenced the managing editor of our newspaper Hüseyin Civan to 1 year and 3 months of imprisonment with the charge "making the propaganda for the methods of a terrorist organization constituting coercion, violence or threats through legitimizing or praising or encouraging the use of these methods".

As we emphasized in the articles leading to the investigation, "State will never be able to captivate the passion of freedom of and the conviction of freedom of the peoples".
As an anarchist newspaper knowing that the free life that we believe in can only be created through struggle, we will never give up writing what we stand up for and distribute what we write. We will continue to resist, act and write against oppression, investigations, custodies and arrests.

Turchia: condannato a pena detentiva l'editore responsabile del giornale anarchico Meydan
L'inchiesta era partita dall'ufficio del procuratore in capo di Istanbul in relazione al contenuto degli articoli "Lo Stato non fa che diffondere ed usare la paura", "Proibito fino a nuovo ordine" e "Ricreando la vita" all'interno del n°30 del nostro giornale pubblicato nel dicembre 2015 col titolo "Proibire tutto". Alla sentenza si è giunti dopo quasi un anno di indagini e di udienze.

Con giudizio sommario, ieri il tribunale ha condannato l'editore responsabile del nostro giornale Hüseyin Civan a 1 anno e 3 mesi di prigione con l'accusa di "procurata propaganda dei metodi di un'organizzazione terroristica fondati sulla coercizione, sulla violenza e su minacce tramite la legittimazione o l'apologia o l'istigazione all'uso di tali metodi".

Come mettevamo in rilievo negli articoli messi sotto accusa "Lo Stato non riuscirà mai a mettere in gabbia la passione per la libertà ed il convincimento della libertà nelle persone".
Come giornale anarchico sappiamo che la vita libera in cui crediamo si può conquistare solo tramite la lotta, ecco perchè non smetteremo mai di scrivere ciò in cui crediamo e di farne diffusione. Continueremo a resistere, ad agire ed a scrivere contro l'oppressione, contro la repressione, la carcerazione e gli arresti.

Yesterday, at a time when the tears have not dried and the rage is not settled yet for the cities burned down to rubble with tanks and bombing, hundreds of people killed, thousands of old, young, child, women and men wounded and unhoused; the images of the perpetrators taking medals are alive in our memories; when the tanks and planes which burned down the cities and killed the people targeted Ankara and Istanbul on July 15, yesterdays heros were declared traitors overnight. Thousands of people were stuffed into prisons, tens of thousands lost their jobs. [Türkçe] [Ελληνικά] [Italiano]

The far-right bastards of syriza go smoothly hand in hand with ND (nea dimokratia, right-wing party in power before syriza’s election), anthimos (the metropolit, church’s highest officer in Thessaloniki) and all the rest pile of shit, consisting the long arm of repression. With a non-seen before operation of revenge against no border camp, they attack in the crack of dawn on families of refugees in their own homes and on the solidaries.
