*DEVRİMCİ ANARŞİST FAALİYET*
*REVOLUTIONARY ANARCHIST ACTION*
*1. *This is a global communication call. We aim to communicate with all
anarchist and anti-authoritarian individuals, autonoms and organizations;
with this aim we hope to develop a solidarity web.
*2. *We are the individuals of an organized anarchist group called D.A.F
(Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet) that has been active in Anatolia and
Mesopotamia for five years. We take “revolution”, “organising”, “collective
living”, and “collective producing” as initials for our group. We are on the
side of the people who are facing with power.
*3. *We have a collective and organised perspective which
– try to understand, care and examine the freedom struggle of Kurdish people
that we see as a rebel and a resistance movement against state in social
– try to organise anti-militarism and total objection as anarchist action
against nation-state perception which is nationalist and depends on
– try to organise youth organisations which are against gerontocratic
– try to organise vitally and politically with the individuals (women,
children, lgbtt individuals…) who are ignored by male-dominated society;
– try to create the conditions of self-organization with an anarchist method
in strikes, occupations, resistances and every kind direct actions of
labourers and oppressed people;
– try to take out our lives from capitalist system and its social
*4. *With this perspective;
We look at the labour-capital relationship from aspect of the oppressed, and
carry out towards an uncompromising with capital as anarcho-syndicalist
class struggle formation in today’s capitalist society. We support the
workers heavy and poor working conditions, forced to work in business crimes
resulting in life struggles. At this point, we made boycotts occupations,
long term street actions together with the shipyard workers, jeans grinding,
UPS, ISKI, MEHA, TEKEL, Buca Subcontractor, DESA, Media Workers, Cinema
Workers. We adopted an uncompromising attitude with the boss and the union
*5. *We made protests against the deception of the global crisis has
created by global capitalism price increases and unemployment in the country
in the face of the economic consequences, against to the practitioners of
this global exploitation IMF and The World Bank during meetings of October 6
to 7 dates we had blockade, sabotage and street acts, along with laid-off
colleagues performed resistance.
*6. *We also carry out actions in the universities which turned into
military barracks. We organise campaigns against the applications of the
universities which are surrounded with private security guards and security
cameras. Also, to the attacks in the universities to opposition
understanding (suspension, disciplinary penalties, throwing from the school,
fascist attacks against the Kurdish students, the individual forms of audit
work to keep under control; search turnstiles, identity questioning,
barcode-chip ID) versus actions done.
*7. *We carry out activities against the isolation and prisons. When the
state makes issue to the political prisoners in prisons, the actions made
outside are missed and prison hunger streaks began. The state further that
the intensity of the resistance in the face of justifying prisons held
operations. In 2000, 122 political prisoners were injured, 28 prisoners were
killed. Still the state ongoing repressive practices against prisoners in
prisons, and we are continuing our solidarity with isolated the political
prisoners inside and outside. With our crippled friends in jail after these
operations, symbolic protests as the “barefoot” walks what an application of
prison are done and we are corresponding with the prisoners and sending
books to the prisoners.
*8. *The history of conscientious objection in Turkey is the history of
state’s desperation against conscientious. We, as anarchists who aim social
transition, are considering that conscientious objection is the most active
step and the most truthful action for the war that has been continuing in
this land for thirty years. We provide sensitivity among Kurdish people
(especially Kurdish youth) in this issue with the process that we activate
with the platform called “Barış için Vicdani Ret Platformu” (Conscientious
Objection Platform for Peace). Visiting the Kurdish region, panels in
Kurdish districts, street actions and the solidarity with the prisoners who
are conscientious objectors are the concrete examples of this sensitivity.
We are making actions about the “soldier’s suspicious deaths/suicides”,
organizing meetings to the families of guerrillas and soldiers for making
them come together in struggle, making protests for the individuals who are
sentenced for supporting conscientious objection. There are over than 250
people who are conscientious objectors (most of them are Kurdish). We keep
on making solidarity actions for İnan Suver who is still in prison because
of being conscientious objector.
*9. *Global capitalism commoditizes water and soil that are the essence of
living things by making them energy politics for companies’ high profits. At
the same time, historical and cultural values of the people of the regions
are being destroyed. All these energy politics cause ecological and social
destruction which can’t be returned. We are giving struggle and resisting
with local people against the policies of the capitalism that shape the
nature and living things forcefully. We are against all hydroelectric power
stations, thermal power stations, nuclear power stations and the energy
policies that destroy life. We are standing with villagers and trying to
prevent the facilities of the companies that execute these energy policies,
in front of construction sites in local places and in front of the centres
of the companies in cities. We are making activities especially in BlackSea
region (where companies are planning to build many hydroelectric power
stations). The platform that we concrete our activities called “Karadeniz
İsyandadır Platformu” (BlackSea is on Riot Platform).
*10. *We are against the gender identities which become pressure tools of
power. We want to overcome the social gender inequalities and abolish
discrimination between all genders. We defend vital and politic existences
of “others” that are ignored by the power with women and LGBTT
organisations. With this point of view, we are making protests and involving
protests about woman and transsexual murders, we are attending 8th Marches
with our black purple flags, we are trying to create struggle circumstances
with our women friends who are cleaning workers and making panels,
activities about this issue.
*11. *We are against capitalist visual consuming that creates its own
sociality and commoditize human relationships. We, who come together with
this objection to capitalist visual consuming and who are art activists, see
art as a form of action in vital area and we are producing projects with
this aim in the name of “Sanalt”. In this context, we are organising an
ironic advertisement competition called “Antikapitalist Reklamlar” (Ant
capitalist Advertisements). Beneath this, we have a project called “Kara
Propaganda” (Black Propaganda) that we produce visual materials about agenda
against propaganda of the system.
*12. *Our radio project is going on that we started it against the
televisions, radios and the media which are getting bigger and bigger by the
advertisements that are under the control of the capitalists. Mülksüzler
Radyo, which take its name from Le Guin’s “The Dispossessed”, is
broadcasting from the different regions of the world. Mülksüzler Radyo which
is the communication web of the people, who have different interests, is a
radio project that rises up the voice of the streets. The individuals who
make programs in Mülksüzler Radyo are in mutual solidarity with the
listeners. Mülksüzler Radyo aims to be different from a radio that has
*13. *We made 26A project for creating ant capitalist living culture against
consuming culture of global capitalism; for realizing our new world dream
right now to produce, live and share. The main goal of 26A project is to
carry out destructive practices of daily revolution.
– Home Model: We need to share and collectivize our living area for
transforming our lives totally against capitalist culture. Capitalist
culture changes individuals to distrustful and alone people, obligates them
to be parts of the economical exploitation, forces them to take place in
authoritarian relationships and forces them to lose their self confidences.
We live in spaces where capitalist habits are out, where we live
collectively, where we experience economical partnership and sharing
relationships, where the vital knowledge circulate independently, where we
feel ourselves free.
– Solidarity Culture: We conduct vital activities with our friends who live
nearby in the perspective of the home model. We cooperate in needs (like
food, clothes etc.) and in help (health, legal problems etc.). By
maintaining this culture, we are trying to find solution in the problem of
capitalist life destruction.
– Vital Production: We make our foods and produce our clothes by a method
that we don’t buy or shop, but we produce as needed. So that, we create an
alternative living culture against interminable capitalist consuming
culture. We collect foods from bazaars and conserve them in periodic times.
We collect stuffs from the garbage of the textile fabrics and use them for
producing our clothes. We share all these things that we need with the
people who need them.
– Cafe 26A: Cafe 26A is a social center where anarchists use for activities
and meetings, also is a place that help economically for our organised
group. We share our “products” in Cafe 26A where you can also find much
alternative publishing. This social center is an international place where
you could meet with anarchist and anti-authoritarian people around the
world. We run this place collectively with 20 volunteers. We make big table
to eat periodic times in a day that anybody could attend this relationship
and the situation if they want.
*Anarşist Perspektif İzmir*
*1. *We have been trying to create an organised anarchist perception in
Izmir for one year. We are recognizing the fascism behind the “democratic”
face of Izmir and acting as organised individuals against this fascist
*2. *We are raising our voices against the war in these lands and struggling
for being organized in conscientious/ total objection movement. We are
considering that the war against Kurdish people will be finished by the
socialization of conscientious/ total objection movement. We are arranging
panels and other facilities about this movement in universities. In this
perspective, we are supporting the struggle of conscientious objector İnan
Suver who was arrested in 05.08.2010. We are organising press statements,
actions and solidarity campaigns for İnan Suver who is still in jail.
*3. *We are supporting two worker strikes which are still going on in Izmir.
We are raising our voices with 25 UPS workers, who are fired by one of the
representatives of global capitalism, against capitalism for one year. We
are standing by the cleaning workers of Buca Municipality who got fired
because of “subcontractor system”, by the coalition of the governors and
capitalists. We are, as Anarşist Perspektif, together with cleaning workers
in their strikes; in which they have been living in their strike tents in
front of the municipality building, in which they protest by quitting their
jobs for syndicate, in which they come into prominence by their organised
stands against subcontractor system.
*4. *Universities, as a space that system produces itself again and again,
makes the individuals (who are intimidated by the power of knowledge) gears
for the big machine. We are organising in universities for declaring the
process of the system, for destroying all pressure mechanisms. While the
individuals are being made futureless and reserves of the system by forcing
to be a slave for capitalism, we are organising with a solidarity soul, far
away from academic desires, for resisting the identity created by knowledge.
In our activities in universities, we are aiming to demolish the knowledge
which is merchandised and putting the vital one instead and to destroy the
anxiety of the individuals for their future in system.
*5. *We are making studies in our cinema collective. We are insisting
active, politic and participative cinema against a cinema which made the
individuals alienated audiences. In this context, we are making a
documentary study which is about urban regeneration (that is in process) in
where Kurdish people are living (Kadifekale). We are discussing the politic
and social effects of cinema in our screenings and workshops.
*Lise Anarşist Faaliyet*
*High school Anarchist Action*
*1. *As “Lise Anarşist Faaliyet” we are in a struggle to separate the
organized anarchism at high schools by 3 years.
*2. *Education acts as a factory that provides slaves for capitalism on
the lands that we live. Wearing uniforms at schools is an obligation for
students in Turkey, it is allowable that perform violence against students
by teachers or other older persons, it is learned us that our inability and
obey to them. We have to swear that devote our existence to Turkish
existence every morning, by age of 7 to 18.these are taught us that
loftiness of army, obligation of dying for homeland if requires, obligation
of struggle against “factionist ideas” like anarchism, communism, etc.
implementations are still processing made by “junta 80”.
*3. *University entry exams are one of the biggest oppression on us. We
have to prepare like racing horses for these exams. A 13 years old child
boasts for solving 500 test problems in a day. Puissance destroys our
childhood, imaginations, trust or love to others. We graduate from
university with loneliness and think about nothing other than our own
*4. *We believe nobody deserves this 12 year systematic torture.
Therefore we struggle against selfish, careerist, obedient, militarist,
fascist perceptions minds that are created by education system, over youth.
Anything gets us free that learnt at schools. For this reason, we oppose to
education. We see high schools: that are buildings that young people being
captive in there, as the fields of anarchism organization. We believe that a
free world can be formed of a social revolution which includes organised
*5. *“Lafanzin” is a publication that made of our articles, disturbed in
8 provinces. We are appealing the people who communicated with us through
our website (lafisyanda.org), our wall writings, to the organized movement
against capitalism. Our propaganda is about to include people to a
revolution that will start right now and not an end. We call young people to
start their own revolution right now.
*6. *We attach great importance to the actions of the street. Acts of
sabotage are holding the school and educational institution. We try to
announce to more and younger people anarchism with school locking, wall
writings, flyers, sign replacement acts. We are organising the people to not
being a request of system. About 6 months in Anatolia against the
selfishness of capitalism, various schools are establishing growing tables
with sharing. We always eat our meals all together on a collective table.
These tables are increasing by youngsters which feel the freedom of the
sharing day by day.
*7. *L.A.F. (High school Anarchist Action) interests about the social
injustices which interests youth. We are not abstaining from evidencing to
not being a solder of Turkey at the war in our country. We are trying to
tell to more and younger people conscientious objection for peace. We are
anti-militarist youngsters as a friend of us İlyada Erkus who is the
youngest conscientious objector and anti-militarist over the world.
*8. *Reaching a free world is too difficult unless overthrown schools,
get youth free, cut down the culture of obedience. Our fight is for a world
which frees of power that attacking to our souls and lives.
