The curfew declared by the Turkish state in Mardin’s Nusaybin district on March 14 continues in the 6 neighborhoods in the district with most of the district’s population. The houses damaged during the curfew with artillery from tanks and mortars are being demolished as well as undamaged ones. The demolition has been completed in Zeynelabidin and Kışla neighborhoods while the demolition in Dicle, Fırat, Abdulkadirpaşa and Yenişehir neighborhoods continue. The barbed wire fences surrounding the Zeynelabidin and Kışla neighborhoods haven’t been removed, even though the destruction and pillaging are done. People are not even allowed through to the cemetery in the area.

The sound of dozens of construction machines working simultaneously in four neighborhoods demolished by the Turkish state forces can be heard all over the city. The people try to enter the streets, now turned into open land, and figure out their plots.





At the fifth anniversary of the massacre in Roboskî, we wanted to remind everyone of the stories of the 36 people.

34 people from Roboski and Bujeh villages of Şırnak’s Uludere district, 28 of them from the same family, were massacred by bombs from Turkish jet fighters on December 28, 2011.

As the fifth anniversary of the massacre draws close, those responsible for the massacre are still in the dark. At a time when deaths are reduced to numbers, we as the ANF will remind you of the stories of those murdered in Roboskî.

Seattleites Form Neighborhood Groups to Resist Trump

Posted in Deutschsprachige Artikel, Direnis, English, Espanol, Français with tags , on 19/12/2016 by Karakök



As soon as the results were in on election night, Seattle-based activist Kaya Axelsson and several fellow organizers knew they had to do something — fast. While the idea of community-based activism driven by Neighborhood Action Councils (NACs) was a concept Axelsson and her colleagues were familiar with, November 8, 2016 “is the first time we said it out loud to each other,” she says. To prepare for a Trump administration, the feeling was extremely clear: “We need to do this.”

Within days, Axelsson and some 50 Seattleites had formed what’s now been dubbed the Neighborhood Action Coalition, an all-volunteer umbrella for the hyperlocal groups being created across the city to help guard against the President-elect’s agenda—which, so far, could include everything from creating a Muslim registry to denying climate change to defunding all sanctuary cities like Seattle, which effectively shield undocumented immigrants from federal officials.

Five days after election night, Axelsson helped organize a forum where hundreds gathered to discuss their fears (so many, in fact, that the bar where it was held overflowed onto a nearby park). On Sunday, December 4, the second event Axelsson helped with — the Neighborhood Action Coalition’s official kickoff — drew almost as many people, and within minutes, attendees had stopped wanting to talk about their post-Trump feelings and begun pulling up lists of concrete, local actions. “In the first 15 minutes of the event, they were ready to go,” Axelsson says.

Examples include anti-racist education, particularly with regards to Muslim and immigrant communities. One idea, for instance, is a series of workshops that debunk persistent stereotypes about Islam. “The first step for us is going to be fighting that xenophobic rhetoric, especially if we are a sanctuary city and funding does get cut for us,” Axelsson says. “People are going to feel the sting of that” and it could, potentially, create bad feeling, as “it’s easy to be in solidarity when it’s no cost to you.”

One community organizer says he’ll work to create a hate-free zone in Rainier Beach, according to a Neighborhood Action Coalition press release; another says she’ll help create a phone tree so that Seattleites can mobilize when needed. Another idea, says Axelsson, is for activists to be ready, in the event of an Immigration & Customs Enforcement raid, to dispatch large groups of people to the scene in order to “confuse an ICE officer.” Activists are looking to take to the streets on inauguration day, and brainstorming ways to protect their digital communications against federal surveillance. During the second half of Sunday’s event, more than two dozen local nonprofits gathered for a “Community Action Fair,” too, which also offered people concrete ways to get involved.

“I’m excited about gently, but firmly, pushing my community to take more political risk,” says Axelsson, who grew up in Capitol Hill. Solidarity, to her, means action. She’s organized for gender justice, climate change, and racial justice issues in the past; she says she’s “someone who puts their body on the line fairly often for political causes” and is still dealing with the repercussions of being arrested for that. A future with even more arrests in it looks scary. “I fear political persecution,” she says. “If the NSA made a list of troublemakers, I would be on it.” But a bigger fear than that one is that people won’t take those risks, at a time when, she believes, we have to. “We’re pushing a political line… we have to push it forward because [a Trump administration] is going to try to push it back.”

There are now NACs for every Seattle City Council district, and Facebook groups for each, which will soon be posted on the Coalition’s website and Facebook page. Those interested in getting involved — and really, Axelsson says, “all levels of engagement are welcome and necessary right now,” even just bringing food to meetings — could connect to either the main group or their neighborhood’s group. The Coalition has a listserv and an email address (SeattleNAC@gmail.com) that people who aren’t on Facebook can contact, too.

The galvanizing effect of what even our state attorney general has called “unthinkable” is definitely a good thing, Axelsson adds, but she’s loathe to use the term “silver lining.” As “happy as we are to have each other in this time,” she says of herself and fellow organizers, “We’re not happy.” In order to maintain a sense of urgency, which organizers are reminded of constantly, “You have to feel that sadness and that fear.”

İsviçreli 6 partiden ortak açıklama: Türkiye’de yaşananlar endişe verici

Posted in Haberler with tags on 16/12/2016 by Karakök

İsviçre Federal Meclisi’nde bulunan Sosyalist Parti (SP) Grup Başkanı Roger Nordman, Hıristiyan Demokrat Parti Grup Başkanı Viola Amherd, Liberal Demokrat Parti Grup Başkanı Ignazio Cassis, Yeşiller Grup Başkanı Balthasar Glattli, Liberal Yeşiller Grup Başkanı Tiana Angeline Moser ve Demokrat Burjuva Partisi Grup Başkanı Rosmarie Quadranti yaptıkları ortak açıklama ile Türkiye’de yaşanan anti-demokratik uygulamaları eleştirdi.

Grup başkanları Türkiye’de son dönemde gittikçe çöken hukuk devletinin varlığına dikkat çekti.



Uluslararası Parlamenter Birliği’nin (IPU) geçtiğimiz günlerde HDP’li vekiller ve seçilmişlere yönelik uygulanan hukuksuz politikalara dönük açıkladığı raporu hatırlatan grup başkanları, milletvekillerinin dokunulmazlıklarının kaldırılarak tutuklanmasını eleştirdi. DBP’li belediyelere ve seçilmişlere yönelik saldırıları hatırlatan grup başkanları Türkiye’de hukukun üstünlüğünün gittikçe erozyona uğradığını söyledi.


Yine Uluslararası Sınır Tanımayan Gazeteciler ’in (RSF) Türkiye’ye yönelik yayınlamış olduğu raporlara hatırlatan grup başkanları, gazetecilere, medya kuruluşlarına yönelik yapılan saldırıların ve sivil toplum kuruluşlarının kapatılmasının endişe verici olduğunun altını çizdi.

İsviçre Federal Konseyi, Türkiye’de yaşanan insan haklarını ve insan hakları savunucularını korumak amacıyla harekete geçmeye çağıran grup başkanları, İsviçre’nin Türkiye’de barışın sağlanması için rol oynamasını istedi.

‘I helped create ISIS’: Iraq War veteran says US policy caused ‘blowback’ in Middle East

Posted in Deutschsprachige Artikel, English, Espanol, Français with tags , on 08/12/2016 by Karakök


Saying he had “helped create ISIS,” an Iraq War veteran and US Marine is speaking out about the atrocities and criminal activities he and his fellow soldiers engaged in during the Iraq War, claiming he knew it would lead to “blowback” in the Middle East.

Former Marine Vincent Emanuele’s acknowledgement of responsibility comes in an article that was posted on TeleSUR’s English website, in which he hoped to answer the often raised question of “Where did ISIS come from?”

“When I was stationed in Iraq with the 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, 2003-2005, I didn’t know what the repercussions of the war would be, but I knew there would be a reckoning,” he wrote at TeleSUR. “That retribution, otherwise known as blowback, is currently being experienced around the world (Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, France, Tunisia, California, and so on), with no end in sight.”



Speaking with RT, Emanuele said his enlightenment came on his second tour to Iraq and was the result of a simple question.

“I saw my fellow Marines kill innocent people, torture innocent civilians, destroying property, mutilating dead bodies, running over dead corpses, laughing and photographing people while doing so,” he said. “For me it was very simple. I sat there in Iraq and I asked myself ‘How would I behave?’ ‘What would I think if I was in the shoes of the Iraqi people?’”

In his article, Emanuele described how he and his platoon literally trashed Mesopotamia by throwing garbage out of their Humvee, and pelting children with Skittles, water bottles full of urine, rocks, and debris. He remembers stories told by soldiers of torture carried out on detainees in makeshift detention facilities.

“I vividly remember the marines telling me about punching, slapping, kicking, elbowing, kneeing and head-butting Iraqis. I remember the tales of sexual torture; forcing Iraqi men to perform sexual acts on each other while marines held knives against their testicles, sometimes sodomizing them with batons,” wrote Emanuele.

This would have been at the height of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal in 2003, which came to public attention when Amnesty International published reports of human rights abuses by the US military and its coalition partners at detention centers and prisons in Iraq. One former prisoner of the US who survived was Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who is now the leader of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).




Hamburg: Feuer gelegt an dem Austragungsort der OSZE- und G20 Gipfel

Posted in anti militer, Avrupa haberler, Deutschsprachige Artikel, English, Espanol with tags on 07/12/2016 by Karakök


Wir haben heute um 23:00 an dem Austragungsort der OSZE- und G20 Gipfel, der Hamburger Messe im Eingang Süd, mit Reifen und Benzin Feuer gelegt. Die Glasfront an der Karolinenstraße ist einer intensiven Bearbeitung mit Hämmern, Farbe und Steinen unterzogen worden.

Wir haben uns zu dieser Abrissinitiative entschieden, da wir die Messe, die sich als Messe zur Welt versteht, ebenso grundsätzlich ablehnen wie die dort geplanten Herrschaftstreffen.

Die Messe ist ein Symbol für den (bisher) nicht endenden Kreislauf von Produzieren und Konsumieren, von dieser Warengesellschaft, die Menschen vom gesellschaftlichen Leben ausschließt und andere einschließt. Wir wollen diesen Kreislauf wie auch die Messe zerstören.

Die Messehallen befinden sich keineswegs praktisch im Wohnzimmer des Schanzen- und Karolinenviertels, wie sich die Landesvorsitzende der Grünen, Gallina, ausdrückte, sondern schwelten in der Vergangenheit lange als Abrissbirne über den Köpfen der Anwohner_innen. In den 50ern und 60ern hat die Stadt Hamburg große Flächen und viele Gebäude im Karolinenviertel aufgekauft und einen Wettbewerb ausgeschrieben, der als Prämisse den Totalabriss des Karos für eine Erweiterung der Messe und des «Justizforums» vorsah. An der Feldstraße war ergänzend dazu lange die Errichtung einer gigantischen Sport- und Mehrzweckhalle geplant. Als der Hamburger Senat in den 70ern nach und nach von den Abbruchplänen abrückte, versuchte die Messe AG weiter den Abriss umzusetzen. Und letztendlich erhielt die Messe neue Flächen und Hallen am Rande des Karolinenviertels. Flankiert wurde der Neubau durch Hotelbauten im Schanzenpark, der Schröderstiftstraße und der Feldstraße.

In den 80er, 90er und 0er Jahren wurde das Karo 1/4 zum Schauplatz von Hausbesetzungen (z.B. LaMa Häuser) und Kämpfen um den Bauwagenplatz Bambule. Die Hamburger Regierung erfand eine Stadterneuerungsgesellschaft, um den Bestand an baufälligen Gebäuden zu modernisieren und eine Befriedung und Aufwertung auf schleichendem Wege zu bewerkstelligen. Das Ergebnis ist das Aufmotzen des Karolinenviertels zu einer Erlebnis und angesagten Einkaufszone für Hamburgtourist_innen. Nach dem Auslaufen der Mietpreisbindungen mussten viele arme Bewohner_innen wegziehen, da für sie die Miete zu teuer wurde.

Mit den Inhalten und Verkaufsangeboten der in den Hallen aufgeführten Messeevents konnten die Anwohner_innen meist wenig anfangen: Hanseboot und Hansegolf, Sportbedarf für Reiche und solche, die es werden wollen, Messen der Flugzeug- und Schiffahrtsindustrie wie die Aircraft Interiors Expo oder die größte Schiffbaumesse der Welt SMM, wo auch Rüstungsfirmen wie Lürssen austellen.

Im Windschatten der Hamburger Olympiapläne machten einige Strateg_innen aus Berlin un der Hansestadt eine Austragung des OSZE und des G20 Treffens klar, um die Popularität von Hamburg zu erhöhen. Außenminister und bald Bundespräsident Steinmeier empfahl Hamburg als Gipfellocation, da diese Stadt als Tor zur Welt gilt und als alte Hanse- und Hafenstadt für Weltoffenheit und Toleranz, für Kultur steht.

Wir assoziieren mit Hamburg vornehmlich Brechmittelfolter, Polizeiskandale, racial profiling, Kriegsschiffe im Hafen, die protzige Präsentierung ihres Reichtums durch die Hamburger Multimillionär_innen, monströse Investitionen in «Leuchtturmprojekte» wie die Elbphilharmonie, Abschiebeknast am Flughafen und ein geschlossenes Heim, um Jungendliche wegzusperren.

Die Durchführung von politischen Gipfeln erscheint vielen erstmal als banal und normal. Doch die damit einhergehende Militarisieurng, die Erprobung des Notstandes ist nichts, was einfach wieder verschwindet. Es handelt sich um Bestandteile einer ausgefeilten Repression und Kontrolle, die kontinuierlich weiter entwickelt wird.

Die Planungen und Vorbereitungen der Ordnung im Zusammenhang mit dem Treffen schreiten voran. Es werden Zellen im Untersuchungsgefängnis und den Knästen auf Hahnöfersand und in Billwerder hergerichtet. Die Polizei erhält einen neuen Panzerwagen namens Survivor, neue Sturmgewehre und neue Schutzschilde, für auswärtige Bullen werden 15 Millionen Euro locker gemacht, die deutsche Polizeigewerkschaft beginnt Brötchen für ihre Kolleg_innen zu schmieren, Hubschrauber kreisen über der Stadt, Sixpacks der Bundespolizei erkunden das Terrain – aber auch wir stehen in den Startlöchern. Die Rebell_innen der Subversion werden in Hamburg deutliche Spuren hinterlassen und Zeichen der Zerstörung setzen.

This is a call for action: Gegen die herrschende Ordnung der Welt, den revolutionären Kampf organisieren, bis jede Grenze fällt.
Wir werden unsere Kämpfe nicht auf die Tage der Gipfel beschränken. Deshalb rufen wir international auf, den April 2017 für grenzenlose dezentrale Momente von Widerstand zu verwenden, Bezüge zwischen den unterschiedlichsten Kämpfen herzustellen und unsere Angriffe zu verstetigen.

Troublemakers of the world save the date: 7.7./8.7.2017
