Kurdistan – a people’s quest for freedom and democratic autonomy

This document will summarize what is happening in Syria and Rojava (Western Kurdistan). There are many ethnic and religious communities living in Syria. One of these is the Kurds. We will give a summary of what the Kurds have gone through in the past three years, from bloody conflict to their approach to war, attacks on their region and their proposals for a solution. What we present here may appear to be a Kurdish proposal for peace; however, we believe that if applied more broadly, it could be a model for a peaceful and democratic Syria as a whole.

Extreme police repression in Turkey leaves many wounded and one dead

According to Roarmag, last night, large parts of Istanbul were covered in clouds of tear gas in what appears to be the most violent crackdown of the authorities on the peaceful protests opposing Erdogan’s increasingly authoritarian rule so far.

At 9pm with only a 15 minutes warning the police attacked Gezi park which was at that time filled with peaceful protesters, among them children, elderly and tourists. In less than half an hour the park was cleared from protesters and the police started tearing down tents, banners, infirmaries and community spaces that were set up by the protesters. A lot of people sought refuge in the hotels surrounding Gezi Park, with Divan Hotel opening its doors to the wounded and being turned into an emergency hospital.

The violence of the police last night was unprecedented, with water cannons shooting water at a hospital entrance, police firing tear gas inside buildings and apartments, attacking the Divan Hotel arresting doctors and the injured alike. Widespread rumours suggest that the water from the water cannons has been treated with some kind of chemical, causing skin and eyes to burn.

So far one protester lost his life after being run over by a police vehicle (see first video).

Doctors arrested for treating protesters

In a reaction to the violent crackdown, hundreds of thousands of Istanbullus took to the streets, marching on highways and across the bridge over the Bosporus in order to join their fellow-Capulers in the area around Taksim Square. All night long protestors tried to advance towards the centre, only to be met with more police violence. Reports of the army and military police being brought in feed fears of escalation of the conflict, especially in the light of the provocative AKP-rally that is organised by Erdogan in Istanbul today.

In Ankara the violence continued as well, with reports of dozens of protestors being hospitalized after being hit in the head or the chest by tear gas canisters, which are used as bullets and fired directly at the protestors by the police.

Funeral of Ethem Sarısülük in Ancara, killed by police bullet on June 1st

Istanbul, a completely naked protester stands firmly against the police.

The Taksim Solidarity Platform called for rallies at 16:00 (IST) today, with marches being organized in the following towns across the country: Edirne, Bursa, Antep, Konya, Trabzon, Tarsus, Adana, Çaycuma, Çanakkale, Antalya, Samsun, Eskisehir, Antakya, Izmir, Mersin.

Meanwhile, media reporters were not allowed to enter Gezi Park whilst many of them have are not even allowed to record in İstanbul and in Ankara. Government figures have continued blunt lies, spreading spite and malice through the media and municipality in İstanbul stops public transportation to stop people reach at Taksim. The families of those who have been taken into custody do not know where they have been taken in İstanbul while the thousands of people attending to the funeral of Ethem Sarısülük (who was killed by a police bullet) have been violently attacked by police in Ankara and the municipality of Ankara has stopped public transportation services to prevent people from attending the funeral. Almost all of the international conventions that Turkey has been a party to regarding human rights have been breached.

People marching to Taksim on TEM (Trans European Motorway) right now, while Turkey’s EU minister Egemen Bağış said in a televised interview tonight, hours after the police’s intervention, that everyone who enters Istanbul’s Taksim Square, the heart of the nearly 20-day-long protests, will be considered a terrorist!

Ankara: thousands of people are now marching to protest state repression, in solidarity with OccupyGezi and Taksim

Amazing response of the people in Istanbul, protesters from all districts of Istanbul are heading towards#Taksim Square.

In solidarity with the protesters in Turkey

These protests are not about the trees; they are about a particular logic of government that violently imposes neoliberalism irrespective of the people.

Originally posted on the Collettivo Prezzemolo blog.

The conviction that Turkey is a success story of economic growth and democratization holds on a number of assumptions. It reduces economic prosperity to the numerical increase in the GDP while ignoring social injustice, income inequality, precarious employment, labor fatalities and so forth. It reads stable democracy as a commitment to consecutive elections, absence of military coups, and majoritarian rule, while turning a blind eye to the human rights violations, and the political repression of minorities.

Indeed, Turkey is a “success” story of environmental degradation to create sites of construction and profiteering, of cultural and historical destruction to build hundreds of fortresses of mass consumption. It is also a “success” story of police growth and paramilitarization, of the suppression of activists, journalists, academics and artists. The ongoing events in Istanbul very well portray this “success” story.

For several days, a group of Istanbulite people occupied Taksim Gezi Park to resist against its demolition. A while ago, the AKP government decided, without negotiating with the people of Istanbul, to run a project for the reconstruction of the Taksim Square, the most central location of the city. The project included the demolition of the Gezi Park, and its replacement with a shopping mall based on the replication of an old military barracks (Topçu Kışlası) which used to exist there, until the early 1940s.

For the last two days, the riot police cracked down before the sunrise on peaceful protesters who were camping on the Gezi Park. The police destroyed their tents and set them on fire.

On Friday morning, the riot police surrounded the entire Gezi Park and blocked the protesters’ access. Since then, thousands of fellow Istanbulites came to Taksim Square to support the resistance. Yet, the Turkish police embarked on warfare against peaceful demonstrators with excessive use of gas bombs and water cannons. Violent police repression injured more than 100 people, many of them needing to be hospitalized.

Social media accounts claim that ambulances were not allowed to enter the square, while several injured people were asking for help. Doctors were called to provide voluntary assistance, and mobile clinics were set up. The whole day, the police did not stop firing tear gas and terrorized Taksim Square and the entire neighborhood.

Despite ongoing police brutality, the number of protesters increased and many fellow Istanbulites, mostly organized through social media, continued to arrive to occupy Taksim Gezi Park. In the evening, riot police blocked the entrance to the square. They encountered thousands of protesters rallying through Istiklal Street. It is reported that mobile networks were blocked and security cameras were turned off to prevent the streaming of the incidences.

For hours, riot police kept shooting gas bombs and pressured water against the protesters from behind their barricades. At midnight, they violently started cracking down on the gathering on Istiklal Street. Still, many people continue to resist and are making calls for a bigger demonstration throughout the weekend.

The ongoing protests in Istanbul are not simply about the removal of some trees in Gezi Park. They are about a particular logic of government. It is a logic that authoritatively and violently imposes destructive and profit-making policies irrespective of the people, their cities, their history and their environment.

We, the Collettivo Prezzemolo, express our solidarity with our comrades resisting yet against another authoritarian government and system among others in Europe and the world, where anything, including murdering people and destroying the environment, can be done for the sake of guaranteeing the profits of a handful of bosses, CEO’s and banks.

We share the protesters’ dreams of a town, a city, a world that is organized and built more democratically, according to the needs of a society freed from neoliberal impositions of uniform ways of living, producing and consuming through violence and suppression.

EN: Attention! Turkish democracy needs you!

After a series of peaceful demonstrations for preserving a recreational area in Istanbul city center which is planned to demolished for the construction of a shopping mall, Turkish police attacked the protesters violently with tear gas and water cannon, directly targeting their faces and bodies. Dozens of protesters are hospitalized and access to the park is blocked without any legal basis. Turkish media, directly controlled by the government or have business and political ties with it, refuse to cover the incidents. Press agencies also blocked the information flow.

Please share this message for the world to become aware of the police state created by AKP of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, which is often considered to be a model for other Middle Eastern countries. Turkish democracy expects your help. Thank you!

ES: Atención! La democracia turca les necesita!

Tras de una serie de manifestaciones pacíficas para proteger una zona verde recreacional en el centro de la ciudad de Estambul que está prevista para ser demolida para la construcción de un centro comercial, la policía turca atacó a los manifestantes, violentamente con gases lacrimógenos y cañones de agua a presión, apuntándoles directamente a las caras y los cuerpos. Decenas de manifestantes están heridos y el acceso al parque está bloqueado sin ninguna base legal. Los medios de comunicación turcos, controlados directamente por el gobierno o que tienen relaciones comerciales y políticas con el gobierno, evitan hablar de los incidentes. Las agencias de prensa, también, han bloqueado la circulación de información.

EL: ΠΡΟΣΟΧΗ!! Η Δημοκρατία στην Τουρκία σας χρειάζεται!

Μετά από μία σειρά από ειρηνικές διαμαρτυρίες με σκοπό τη διάσωση μίας περιοχής πρασίνου στο κέντρο της Κωνσταντινούπολης, η οποία πρόκειται να μετατραπεί σε εμπορικό κέντρο, η Τουρκική αστυνομία επιτέθηκε βίαια στους διαδηλωτές με δακρυγόνα και μηχανήματα εκτόξευσης νερού, στοχεύοντας κατευθείαν στα πρόσωπα και σώματα τους. Δεκάδες διαδηλωτές νοσηλεύονται ενώ η πρόσβαση στο πάρκο έχει αποκλειστεί, χωρίς καμία νομική βάση. Τα τούρκικα ΜΜΕ, τα οποία είτε ελέγχονται κατευθείαν από την κυβέρνηση, είτε έχουν επαγγελματικές και πολιτικές σχέσεις με αυτήν, αρνούνται να καλύψουν τα γεγονότα. Τα ειδησεογραφικά πρακτορεία έχουν επίσης αποκλείσει τη ροή πληροφοριών.

Παρακαλώ μοιραστείτε αυτό το μήνυμα για να λάβει γνώση ο κόσμος για το αστυνομοκρατούμενο κράτος που δημιουργήθηκε από το AKP του Ταγίπ Ερντογάν, σε μια χώρα η οποία συχνά θεωρείται μοντέλο για τις άλλες χώρες της Μέσης Ανατ0ολής.

Η Τουρκική δημοκρατία αναμένει τη βοήθειά σας. Σας ευχαριστούμε!

DE: Achtung! Die Türkische Demokratie braucht dich!

Nach einer Reihe von friedlichen Demonstrationen gegen die Abholzung von hunderten Bäumen für den Bau eines neuen Einkaufzentrums in einem zentralen Park in Istanbul hat die türkische Polizei die Protestierenden mit Tränengas und Wasserwerfer attackiert, dabei wurde direkt auf Gesicht und Körper gezielt.

Dutzende Demonstranten wurden ins Krankenhaus eingeliefert und der Zugang für den Park wurde ohne gesetzliche Grundlage blockiert. Türkische Medien, die direkt von der Regierung kontrolliert werden oder mit der Regierung wirtschaftliche und politische Beziehungen haben, lehnen es ab, über die Vorfälle zu berichten. Die Nachrichtenagenturen blockieren ebenfalls den Nachrichtenfluss.

Bitte teilen Sie diese Nachricht, damit die Welt sich dem Polizeistaat, der von Recep Tayyip Erdoğans AKP erschaffen und oft als Vorbild für andere nahöstliche Länder angesehen wurde, bewusst wird. Die türkische Demokratie erwartet Ihre Hilfe. Danke!

ND: Attentie! De Turkse democratie heeft jullie nodig!

Na een serie geweldloze demonstraties tegen het bouwen van een winkelcentrum in een recreatie-gebied, begon de Turkse politie met gewelddadige aanvallen op de demonstranten. Traangas en waterkanonnen werden direkt gericht op de lichamen en gezichten van het publiek. Tientallen demonstranten liggen nu gewond in het ziekenhuis. De toegang tot het park is geblokkeerd zonder legale gronden. De Turkse media, die ofwel onder regeringscontrole staat of er politieke- of financiële banden mee heeft, weigert over deze incidenten te berichten. Persagentschappen blokkeren de berichtgeving hierover eveneens.

Wij vragen U dit bericht zo veel mogelijk te delen zodat de hele wereld het ware gezicht kan zien van deze politiestaat, gecreëerd door het AKP van premier Erdogan die wordt gezien als model voor het Midden Oosten.
De Turkse democratie heeft Uw hulp nodig.

Dank U wel!!

SLO: Pozor! Turška demokracija te potrebuje!

Po seriji protestov za ohranitev prostora za rekreacijo v centru Istambula, katerega načrtujejo porušiti za izgradnjo trgovskega centra, je turška policija nasilno napadla protestnike s solzilcem in vodnimi topovi, s katerimi je ciljala njihova telesa in obraze. Desetine protestnikov je hospitaliziranih in dostop do parka je blokiran brez pravne podlage. Turški mediji, ki so direktno nadzorovan s strani vlade ali imajo poslovne in politične vezi z njo, ne pokrivajo teh incidentov. Tiskovne agencije ravno tako blokirajo tok informacij.

После серии мирных демонстраций за сохранение зоны отдыха в центре города Стамбул, которую планируется снести для строительства торгового центра, турецкая полиция напала на протестующих с использованием слезоточивого газа и водометов, направленных непосредственно на лица и тела людей.

Десятки демонстрантов были госпитализированы и доступ к парку заблокирован без каких-либо законных оснований. Турецкие СМИ контролируются непосредственно правительством и имеют с ним деловые и политические связи, отказать публикации данных инцидентов.

SE: Efter ett flertal fredliga demonstrationer för att bevara ett rekreationscenter i centrala Istanbul (som planeras att rivas för att bygga en shoppinggalleria) har turkiska polisen nu attackerat demonstranterna. Polisens attack har varit våldsam och de har använt både tårgas och vattenkanoner, riktade mot demonstranternas ansikten och kroppar. Dussintals demonstranter är på sjukhus och parken (rekreationscentret) är olagligt avspärrad. Turkiska media, antingen direkt kontrollerade av turkiska regeringen eller med ekonomiska och/eller politiska kopplingar med den, har vägrat att rapportera om händelserna. Olika pressoranisationer har också blockerat informationsflödet.

Dela denna information så att världen blir medveten om Recep Tayyip Erdoğans AKP:s (rättvise- och utvecklingspartiets) skapande av en polisstat! Hans modell anses ofta vara en förebild för andra mellanösternländer. Turkisk demokrati förväntar sig sig din hjälp! Tack!

FIN: Turkkilainen demokratia tarvitsee apuasi!

Istanbulin keskustassa järjestettiin rauhallisia mielenilmauksia puistoalueen säilyttämiseksi. Puiston tilalle on suunniteltu rakennettavan ostoskeskus. Turkin poliisi hyökkäsi väkivaltaisesti mielenosoittajien kimppuun kyynelkaasun avulla ja vesitykein tähdäten rauhallisia protestoijia suoraan kasvoihin ja vartaloihin. Kymmeniä protestoijia on joutunut sairaalaan ja puistoon pääseminen on estetty ilman mitään laillisia perusteita. Turkkilainen media, joka on joko hallituksen suorassa kontrollissa tai taloudellisin ja poliittisin sitein hallitukseen kytketty, kieltäytyy uutisoimasta tapahtumista. Mediatalot ovat myös tukkineet informaatiotulvan.

Jaa tätä viestiä, jotta maailma tulisi tietoiseksi pääministeri Recep Tayyip Erdoganin AKP-puolueen luomasta poliisivaltiosta, jota erheellisesti pidetään hyvänä esimerkkinä muille Lähi-idän valtioille. Turkkilainen demokratia tarvitsee sinun apuasi. Kiitos!

HU: Riadó! A török demokráciának szüksége van Rád!

Miután békés tüntetések zajlottak azért, hogy a polgárok megvédjék az egyik legutolsó pihenőterületet Isztambul belvárosában, amelyet a tervek szerint le akarnak dózerolni, hogy a helyébe bevásárlóközpont épüljön, a török rendőrség erőszakkal, gumibotokkal, könnygázzal és vízágyúkkal támadta a tüntetőket.

A rendőrök a tüntetők fejét, arcát és testét célozták. Tiltakozók tucatjai kerültek kórházba súlyos sérülésekkel, miközben a parkot kiürítették és lázárták – mindenféle jogalap nélkül. A török média, amely a kormány közvetlen kontrollja alatt áll (vagy üzleti szálak fűzik hozzá), megtagadta az eseményekről való tudósítást. A hírügynökségek meggátolják az információk áramlását.

Kérjük oszd meg ezt az üzenetet a világgal, hogy mindenki megtudja milyen rendőrállam épül ki a Recep Tayyip Erdoğan vezette AKP irányításával. Ezt az államot sokszor modellként említik a közel-keleti országok számára. A török demokrácia számít a segítségedre. Köszönjük!

Pēc vairākām miermīlīgām demonstrācijām, lai saglabātu Stambulas pilsētas centrā esošo atpūtas zonu, ko paredzēts iznīcināt, lai būvētu tirdzniecības centru, Turcijas policija nežēlīgi uzbruka protestētājiem ar asaru gāzi un ūdens lielgabaliem, tieši tēmējot uz cilvēku sejām un ķermeņiem. Dučiem protestētāju jau ir ievietoti slimnīcā, un piekļuve parkam ir slēgta – bez jelkāda likumiska pamatojuma. Turcijas mediji, kuri vai nu atrodas tiešā valdības kontrolē, vai ir piesaistīti tai ar biznesa un politiskām interesēm, atsakās ziņot par notiekošo.

بعد سلسلة من المظاهرات السلمية للحفاظ على منطقة ترفيهية في وسط مدينة اسطنبول والتي من المقرر أن هدمت لبناء مركز للتسوق، هاجمت الشرطة التركية المتظاهرين بعنف مع الغاز المسيل للدموع وخراطيم المياه، وتستهدف مباشرة وجوههم وأجسامهم. في المستشفى عشرات من المحتجين ومنعت الوصول إلى الحديقة دون أي أساس قانوني. وسائل الاعلام التركية، يتحكم فيها بصورة مباشرة من قبل الحكومة أو لديك الأعمال التجارية والعلاقات السياسية معها، ورفض لتغطية الحوادث. كما منعت وكالات أنباء تدفق المعلومات.

Four dead in Turkey, as police uses excessive violence against protesters

Ten people were injured today in a violent crack-down from the Turkish police after hundreds of protesters camped out for several days at a park in downtown Istanbul opposed the destruction of a public park.

The riots police units used excessive amount of tear gas to remove early-morning protesters from Geza Park, Taksim Square. As a consequence, one protester suffered from heart attack and lost his life after being hospitalized. Meanwhile, a second protester died after being run over by a police panzer. Fear is also expressed that the death toll may increase. Unconfirmed reports claim that almost four people died.

People from of all ages, expressed their disagreement with the demolition of buildings and uprooting of some 600 trees that form the lung on that side of town. Ottoman military barracks will be restored also in this place in order to build a large shopping center. Also, a scaffold collapsed during the violent police intervention injuring ten protesters.

The park was built in 1940, narrowed gradually from the luxury hotels that were built around it. The municipality of Istanbul, Turkey’s largest city, with 15 million inhabitants, which is controlled by the ruling Islamist Justice and Development Party, assured that trees will be uprooted and replanted elsewhere.

Protesters made urgent calls for citizens who live abroad to spread the news, as there is internet blockage in the area of Taksim square. Below is their statement that has been circulated through the social media:

Attention! Turkish democracy needs you!

After a series of peaceful demonstrations for preserving a recreational area in Istanbul city centre, which is planned to be demolished for the construction of a shopping mall, Turkish police attacked the protesters violently with tear gas and water cannon, directly targeting their faces and bodies. Dozens of protesters are hospitalized and access to the park is blocked without any legal basis. Turkish media, directly controlled by the government or have business and political ties with it, refuse to cover the incidents. Press agencies also blocked the information flow.

Please share this message for the world to become aware of the police state created by AKP of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, which is often considered to be a model for other Middle Eastern countries. Turkish democracy expects your help. Thank you!
