To the memory of Stepan Shaumyan, Armenian Bolshevik leader of the Baku Commune in 1918, and of Hrant Dink, Armenian socialist intellectual from Istanbul who, until his assassination in 2007, exerted a Herculean effort to bring the genocide into the centre of attention in Turkey. ... read full story / add a comment

“One must know how to employ the kairos [right or opportune moment] of one's forces at the right moment.
It is easy to only lose a little, if one always keeps foremost in the mind the idea that unity is never the trick, but the game.”

On January 25th, Syriza (Coalition of the Radical Left) formed a government in Greece with the help of the ANEL (Independent Greeks). Within 24 hours direct attacks, threats and provocations aimed at the Greek government, about to begin negotiations with EU and Eurozone leaders, began. The attacks were pre-emptive strikes against efforts to find a quick, viable and productive solution to the Greek debt problem that continues to strangle the Greek economy and society; time is very short and everyone is aware that it is working against the efforts of the Greek government that needs to reach an agreement by February 16 or February 28 at the latest. ... read full story / add a comment

Autonomy, occupation, self-management... these long-forgotten terms are back in Turkey since late 2012-early 2013. There have been several factory occupations since last year. The most prominent ones are, among others, Kazova, Greif, Zentiva, Feniş, Moda Socks Factory, Renault, and Şişecam Topkapı workplace occupations. Although both mainstream media and the trade union bureaucracy try to undermine their significance, recent struggles of the workers necessitate greater scrutiny in the wider political-economic context of Turkey; so the meaning of the occupation as well. ... read full story / add a comment

Believe it or not there is a far more dangerous extreme right group in Greece besides Golden Dawn. It's name is Black Lily and they are a Nationalist Socialist organisation that organise themselves in a non hierarchical, horizontal, democratic platform structure but without democratic aims or ideas in mind!!
A little insight on them can be read in the following interview contacted a couple of months ago by a journalist for the right/far right Greek daily “Democratia”! ... read full story / add a comment
greece / turkey / cyprus / workplace struggles / non-anarchist press Wednesday July 03, 2013 - 22:27 by Baris Karaagac and Gaye Yilmaz
The recent wave of resistance that spread from a park in one of the historic neighbourhoods of Istanbul, Turkey has evoked significant enthusiasm in and support from various movements and segments of populations in several countries. Although the park, which had been a temporary home for thousands of protestors for a couple of weeks, was forcibly and violently evacuated by the police on June 16th, the resistance continues in different forms and in numerous locations, both within and outside of Turkey. This unexpected and abrupt rebellion in a country, which has been presented for a decade by many international organizations and governments as a role model for the rest of the Middle East with its commitment to market reforms and ‘democratization,’ was a response to a number of factors and ongoing processes. If the most predominant of these were the increasingly authoritarian nature of the AKP (Justice and Development Party) rule, the others were the further neoliberalization of Turkish society, the utter failure of an increasingly interventionist Turkish foreign policy in the Middle East, and a complete disregard for and destruction of the environment in the service of capital across the country. ... read full story / add a comment
greece / turkey / cyprus / the left / non-anarchist press Friday June 28, 2013 - 19:55 by Kvanç Özvardar
The Gezi Park protests in Istanbul have been the center of attention not only in Turkey but the whole world during the last few weeks. This has been a revolt unforeseeable in terms of its scale, influence, the intensity of its resentment, and the courage, determination, and self-confidence of masses of people, many with no previous political affiliation and experience. It is commonplace to say now that the movement was not just about the initial problem: the destruction of a ‘couple of trees’ to make space for a shopping mall or a kitsch Ottoman style caserne. It was essentially about demanding basic human rights or the right to demand rights.

But what were the big issues? Which developments led to these riots? Why does Taksim Square matter so much to Turkish people? And will this revolt be a factor to cease Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's unfinished transformation?

Hamilton University Professor of Economics Erol Balkan and Sabanci University Professor of Sociology Ahmet Öncü, have been asking these questions for years. In the book they are working on with Hamilton University Professor of Economics Nesecan Balkan, entitled The Neoliberal Landscape and the Rise of Islamic Capital, they analyze the economic and social context that gave rise to this movement. According to Balkan and Öncü, the Gezi Park protests will have to develop into a new, stronger and more inclusive movement in the future. They were interviewed by Kvanç Özvardar, a Turkish journalist writing regularly for Ekonomist weekly and on politics as a freelance reporter. ... read full story / add a comment

El Parque Gezi y la Plaza Taksim ya se encuentran en el imaginario colectivo de la sociedad turca pasados unos días tras el inicio de unas protestas ciudadanas aparentemente imprevisibles. El descontento latente de una juventud a la que se les está imponiendo un sistema moral y de vida islamista desde el Gobierno de Erdogan parece una de las claves principales de esta movilización. El periodista e historiador Manuel Martorell nos arroja interesantes claves para saber lo que está pasando, de momento, en Turquía. ... read full story / add a comment

On May Day 2013, the police poured tonnes of tear gas on tens of thousands of workers and youth in different quarters of Istanbul, Turkey in order to stop them from approaching Taksim Square. The government had decided that this square, the traditional venue for May Day celebrations and home to daily political actions big and small, was to be shut to demonstrations this year because development work was being done on a massive scale involving huge excavated pits making it dangerous for crowds. In a ludicrous act, the governor of Istanbul stood atop a mound at the edge of one of those pits to hold a press conference in a desperate attempt to drive home the threat that these pits represented for people. ... read full story / add a comment

The Orthodox Church of Greece, is a Church which has been justly accused for its close ties with the former military Junta regime (1967-1974), an official national-state church institution that defiantly surpasses Greek legislation, and often incites ethnic hatred against people of neighbour states, despite the fact that they are Christian orthodox themselves, as those of former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. A church that has often been accused of financial and sexual scandals which a few years back in 2005, drew international attention. This same church offered its blessings at Golden Dawn’s offices. At least four dioceses (Chalkis, Mesogaias, Korinthias, Patras) in towns such as Chalkis (9/25/2011), Loutsa (11/20/2011), Nemea (4/1/2012), Kato Axaya (4/29/2012) respectively received similar orthodox blessings too… ... read full story / add a comment

Los resultados electorales han puesto difícil revalidar el gobierno de coalición que continúe con el programa exigido por los acreedores internacionales que, por su parte, rechazan que Grecia tenga libertad para renegociarlo. Nueva Democracia y Pasok ya apelan a la creación urgente de un gobierno de concertación nacional que continúe la política de recortes, tarea para la que se han quedado solos ... read full story / add a comment

El 15 de febrero, 400 presos políticos kurdos iniciaron una huelga de hambre por tiempo indefinido. A ellos se unieron el 8 de marzo otras 500 personas. Estos son: parlamentarios, incluyendo alcaldes y concejales, defensores de derechos humanos, abogados, periodistas, sindicalistas, miembros y dirigentes del Partido por la Paz y la Democracia (pro-kurdo). Estos son solo parte de los más de 9.000 (nueve mil) kurdos, encarcelados desde el 2009 por el gobierno turco con acusaciones falsas y sin ningún respeto por un juicio justo. ... read full story / add a comment

Este llamado ha sido lanzado por Mikis Theodrakis el domingo 12 de febrero de 2012, con ocasión de la gran manifestación de la plaza Syntagma en Atenas, durante el debate parlamentario sobre la adopción del nuevo Memorándum impuesto por la troika (Comisión Europea, Banco Central europeo, y el FMI) a Grecia. Cuando Theodorakis, 86 años, y Manolis Glézos, 90 años, pidieron a los policías de la unidad especial anti-motines MAT poder dirigirse a la multitud desde las escalinatas del Parlamento, la única respuesta de estos últimos ha sido un disparo tupido de gases lacrimógenos que parecía una tentativa de asesinato. He aquí como se trata en este país "entroikizado" a los hombres que, en Japón, serían como "tesoros vivientes". ... read full story / add a comment
