Op 14 mei werden 60 mensen die meededen aan de 1 mei demonstratie in Istanbul gearresteerd en hun huizen ingevallen. Hen wordt ten laste gelegd dat ze “publieke eigendommen vernielden in de naam van een terroristische organisatie”, omdat er tijdens de demo een paar banken werden gesloopt. 9 van hun zitten nog vast. Een van hun een LGBT (lesbian/bisexual/gay/transgender) was het doelwit van discriminerende beledigingen.

De dreiging van 15-20 jaar gevangenis werd tegen ze gebruikt, en zo werden sommigen van deze 9 onder druk gezet in deze dagen (welke ze geisoleerd van hun familie, vrienden en advocaten doorbrachten) en bekenden de leiders te zijn van een terroristische organisatie. Deze ten laste legging is absurd als men kijkt naar de verschillende onderdelen van de anarchistische bewegingen waar ze actief in zijn- van dierenrechten tot mensenrechten, de ecologische beweging en LGBT. Het is de eerste keer dat activisten uit het anarchistische spectrum, uit de dierenrechten en ecologische beweging beschuldigd worden onderdeel te zijn van een terroristische organisatie. Dezelfde methode van repressie heeft een lange en verdrietige ttraditie tegen koerdische en andere linkse groepen en individuen.

Daarom is het nog belangrijker om de vertegenwoordigers van repressie te laten zien dat de gevangenen niet geisoleerd zijn, maar dat ze een brede, internationale beweging achter zich hebben staan, die de verdediging van levens en de waardigheid van mensen en dieren meer waarde toekennen dan een paar (gesloopte) ruiten. In een open brief (zie hieronder) spreken de 9 gevangenen voor het eerst en de Yeryüzüne Özgürlük Derneği (Freedom to Earth Association) roept op tot internationale solidariteit (http://de.indymedia.org/2012/05/330671.shtml).

Op 12 juni zullen er mensen in landen over de hele wereld demonstreren bij de Turkse ambassades om hun solidariteit met de gevangenen te laten zien en hun vrijheid te eisen. Organiseer acties in je eigen stad!
Laat de gevangenen niet alleen!
‘Met onze wensen voor lange dagen van opstand en solidariteit.’

Hieronder de brief van de gevangenen in engels, daaronder het adres van de Turkse ambassade in NL

(en) An Open Letter From Anarchist Prisoners in Turkey to the Public

As known, there had been attack to some banks and companies which are around the MecidiyekÃy-ÅiÅli by some anarchists who are within the Anarchist block on 1st of May 2012. We, as 9 of the 60 people who had been taken to the custody with the blames of the Police Department. We, as 9 anarchist prisoners whom were arrested by the decision of the 9th Criminal Court and had been put in to the Metris – Type T prison writing this letter. — Most of us got under custody by the Counter-Terror Squads on 14th of may, 5 a.m. in the morning, and some on the following day. Our computers, telephones, flash drives, books and many other personal stuffs’ got seized by the the police which were around 10-20 who came to our home. The claim that have been by the police department to us was the “damaging public property in the name of terror organization”.

While, The individuals which have the pretty much different points of the anarchist ideas and also who have seen the first time each other while under surveillance were blaming for creating terrorist organisation, and some of them was forced to make them agree on being the leader of the terrorist organisation by the police during the interrogating.

Even though the leadership is totally contradictory to the anarchist idea and thus is impossible that was the the claim by the police which is tragic-comic imprudence, and also with that claim which is “being member of the same terror organisation” makes things more comic. The people which are claimed by the police of being a member of the terrorist organisation had no arms or amuniton in their home. However, the books which can be find on the every bookstore -for example books of the writers like Kropotkin- had been claimed as an organisational documention on the interrogation by the police. The articles which they had read and the videos that they shared on social media were claimed as evidences to the court by the police.

The membership of the people to a legal association which is working on animal liberation, human rights and ecology issues also claimed as an evidence by the police. All the pyschological pressures used over the people who were under custody for 4 days and were not allowed to see their family members, also were not allowed to call anyone -even their lawyers. On of our LGBT friend had been attacked by “hate speeches”. All the people forced to agree the existence of the terrorist organisation and also forced to give the fake speeches about the other people. However two people who had been scared by the threats of 15-20 years of prison sentence beacuse of the membership on the terrorist organisation declared misstatements about the people that they never know anything about.

By the pressure of the police, they have blamed some people which the police had no evidence over telephone, internet or any other communication with each other, as leader of the organisation, and “identified” them as attackers. Most of our friends got arrested just because of they have the close model and coloured bag, shoes, belt etc. as millions of people can have the same close type of with the people who are video taped on the attack. Of course it is not proved that an anarchist terror rganisation exists with that lacking and irrational evidences. Because of that we got blamed by damage to the public property. We want to clear out that, we, as anarchists who reject all the laws and authories and see all the states as murderers, we don’t care that if the state tells us we are terrorists or not. We don’t care that the state’s mass killing of tens of people in “Roboski”, killing 11 year old UÄur Kaymaz with 13 bullets and giving no punishment for that ones, than judging us. The state that had killed 34 people in 1977, did not even take any people to the custody. But had no problem for taking 60 people to the custody and arresting 9 of them for just 3-5 broken bank windows.

Two of the arrested friends couldn’t enter the final exams on their university, there’s a possibility of that there can be an investigation by their universities and they can get a punishment of suspension or dismission. One of our friends is preparing for the general exam for the entrance of the university, it’s pretty clear that it’s not possible to study enough on the prison. One of friend who is studying M.A/M.S on university would not continue on the thesis of very own. We got news that 3 friend got sacked after they got arrested. Since we’re taken to the custody we’ve experienced the legal system which the states always tells what great it is, actually is no more than a pressure and normalizing tool and notions like justice, right is just on the theory. We want to be out now. But let us explain that neither we ask to anyone nor we beg to anyone. We know that we’re in prison just because of our policial ideas. Because of that, we are not regretfull for the anything we did or we did not. The reason is for writing that letter is just telling truths to the public to know and to help them to learn what is going on.

We know the purpose of the ones who arrested us, is not just fearing us for joining an action, they also like to turn us into the ones who are scared of to resist for their very own rights. But the thing that they do not know is that the prisons of their disgusting civilization will not be able to suppress our ideas and we feel stronger than ever before.

We see all the anarchists in the world as our fellows and sending our greetings, loves and solidarity call to all the insurrectionarists of the world who has freedom fire on their hearts and who are from Athens, Amed, Chiapas, Gazze, Toronto or Seattle… Let you know that you are not alone and there are people in that lands who is struggling too. We thank every one of them, for the solidarity and for the actions that support us. It’s not possible to define our feelings for to describe the local anarchists who are supporting and made actions for us, as the rest of the world, -these pages are very limited for our thank to them. We hug them all with our very dearly greetings. Let them know that we know that they are with us, and we are never feeling alone, even a moment. With wishes of us for many long days with insurrection and solidarity.
