Turkey:

URGENT APPEAL FROM TAKSIM SOLIDARITY

 

The officials who promised to keep Gezi as a park until the end of the court case have turned Gezi Park, Istanbul and our country into a war zone.

We condemn the police assault with rubber bullets, intense teargas and sound bombs on Gezi Park at a time where the park was populated with women, children and the elderly in the evening of the 15th of June and declare this a crime against humanity.

The attacks are continuing around Taksim and neighbouring areas and the whole country.

The infirmaries at Gezi Park and the Divan Hotel have been specific targets of this assault whose intense violence could not even be justified in times of war. Protesters from all areas of Istanbul are walking towards Taksim against government violence. There are protests all over the country.

As we speak we are trying to ascertain numbers in the current assault. The declarations by the governor or police chief are far from convincing. Many people are in police custody and hundreds have been wounded by plastic bullets. Many people cannot reach hospitals.

These attacks have taken place following the meetings our representatives had with the PM and while we were having an open and democratic discussion as to how the process would be shaped from here on in. The attacks have taken place when we had been working on how to reorganise ourselves in the park and at a time where there were no protests whatsoever in Taksim Square. This is a clear indication that the intention of the PM is to intensify polarisation in Turkey and oppress the people with his insatiable lust for authority.

Our decision making processes are open to everyone and we will be following up on our humane and fair demands together with our labour unions, democratic organisations, political parties and our volunteer participants.

We were in the process of reorganising our tents at Gezi Park when the assault took place. Despite this process which had already been conveyed to MPs by artists and other MPs, the violence is an indication that public order has been destroyed by the government itself in our country.

Here are our urgent demands:
1.This violent attack by the police forces has to stop immediately! The government is solely responsible for what happens tonight and tomorrow! 

2.The press should publicise our declarations and protect our people from the misinformation of a government at war with its own people.

3.We are very concerned about those who ended up wounded as a result of this harsh police intervention. Volunteering medics have been stopped from attending to those in need. Ambulance and other public health services should immediately be re-instated.

4.Tens of thousands of people are walking to Taksim from everywhere in Istanbul. Their voices must be heard.

Turkey:

LABOUR UNIONS IN STRIKE TO SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT FOR DEMOCRACY


Tens of thousands of public sector workers in Turkey are now on a "warning strike" in support of anti-government protests...

 

사용자 삽입 이미지

 

The strike was y'day(6.03) called by the Confederation of Public Workers Unions(KESK) in response to "state terror implemented against mass protests across the country". It said that "Erdogan's islamist clerical fascist regime" had "shown once again its deep rooted enmity to democracy"...
 

KESK, which has an estimated 240,000 members in 11 unions, said the strike would last for two days and will send the message, that "this is not just about youth on the streets, this is not just about a park or individual demands - this is about something bigger, about democracy".
 

The strike comes in the wake of five days of mass protests against the Islamic-rooted government of Erdogan. At least two people have died in the demonstrations and more than 1,700 were injured. Meanwhile the Turkish Human Rights Foundation stated that more than 1,000 protesters were subjected "to ill-treatment and torture" by police and secret service agents.

Turkey:

PRO-DEMOCRACY PROTESTS & STATE TERROR


Y'day morning(6.01, AM07:30 CET) I got the following e-mail:
"Attention comrades! Turkish movement for 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!"


Protests in Istanbul's Taksim Gezi Park started on Monday. Initially over authorities' plan to "redevelop" the park into a shopping mall, the demonstrations rapidly gained momentum and became a mass protest against Erdogan and his AKP party's Islamist policies.


Over the weekend the protests spread across the country, and hundreds of thousands took to the streets and were attacked by riot police, who used excessive violence(incl. tear gas, water cannons...) in attempt to end the demonstrations.(*)

2012 美 대통령 선거...

Today's German bourgeois(!!) magazine Der Spiegel published the following notable commentary (yesterday's German version's titel: "Der Untergang des amerikanischen Imperiums"/"The Downall of the American Empire"), regarding today's presidential election in the USA:


Destroyed by Total Capitalism


America Has Already Lost Tuesday's Election


'The US election as a battle between the good Obama and the evil Romney'. But this is a mistake. Regardless of who wins the election on Tuesday, total capitalism is America's true ruler, and it has the power to destroy the country.


The United States Army is developing a weapon that can reach -- and destroy -- any location on Earth within an hour. At the same time, power lines held up by wooden poles dangle over the streets of Brooklyn, Queens and New Jersey. Hurricane Sandy ripped them apart there and in communities across the East Coast last week, and many places remain without electricity. That's America, where high-tech options are available only to the elite, and the rest live under conditions comparable to a those of a developing nation. No country has produced more Nobel Prize winners, yet in New York City hospitals had to be evacuated during the storm because their emergency generators didn't work properly.


Anyone who sees this as a contradiction has failed to grasp the fact that America is a country of total capitalism. Its functionaries have no need of public hospitals or of a reliable power supply to private homes. The elite have their own infrastructure. Total capitalism, however, has left American society in ruins and crippled the government. America's fate is not just an accident produced by the system. It is a consequence of that system.


Obama couldn't change this, and Romney wouldn't be able to either. Europe is mistaken if it views the election as a choice between the forces of good and evil. And it certainly doesn't amount to a potential change in political direction as some newspapers on the Continent would have us believe.


A Powerless President
Romney, the exceedingly wealthy business man, and Obama, the cultivated civil rights lawyer, are two faces of a political system that no longer has much to do with democracy as we understand it. Democracy is about choice, but Americans don't really have much of a choice. Obama proved this. Nearly four years ago, it seemed like a new beginning for America when he took office. But this was a misunderstanding. Obama didn't close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, nor did he lift immunity for alleged war criminals from the Bush-era, or regulate the financial markets, and climate change was hardly discussed during the current election campaign. The military, the banks,

industry -- the people are helpless in the face of their power, as is the president.


Not even credit default swaps, the kind of investment that brought down Lehman Brothers and took Western economies to the brink, has been banned or even better regulated. It is likely the case that Obama wanted to do more, but couldn't. But what role does that play in the bigger picture?


We want to believe that Obama failed because of the conservatives inside his own country. Indeed, the fanatics that Mitt Romney depends on have jettisoned everything that distinguishes the West: science and logic, reason and moderation, even simple decency. They hate homosexuals, the weak and the state. They oppress women and persecute immigrants. Their moralizing about abortion doesn't even spare the victims of rape. They are the Taliban of the West.


The Winner Makes No Difference to Europe
Still, they are only the symptom of America's failure, not the cause. In reality, neither the idealists and Democrats, nor the useful idiots of the Tea Party have any power over the circumstances.


From a European perspective, it doesn't matter who wins this election. Only US foreign policy is important to us -- and Obama is no dove and Romney no hawk. The incumbent president prefers to wage his wars with drones instead of troops, though the victims probably don't care if they're killed by man or machine. Meanwhile, despite all the criticism, his challenger says he wouldn't join Israel were the country to go to war with Iran because the US can now no longer afford such a thing.


In any case, it is wrong to characterize Republicans as the party of warmongers and Democrats as the party of peace -- or even to call the latter a left-wing party at all.

 

After all, it was Democratic presidents Harry S. Truman, John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson who started the wars in Korea and Vietnam. Republican presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and Richard Nixon ended these wars. And Ronald Reagan, who Europeans see as the embodiment of both the evil and absurd aspects of American politics, was a peaceful man compared to the standards we have since become accustomed to. He only ever invaded Grenada.


The truth is that we simply no longer understand America. Looking at the country from Germany and Europe, we see a foreign culture. The political system is in the hands of big business and its lobbyists. The checks and balances have failed. And a perverse mix of irresponsibility, greed and religious zealotry dominate public opinion.


The downfall of the American empire has begun. It could be that the country's citizens wouldn't be able to stop it no matter how hard they tried. But they aren't even trying.

[독일8.25]反인종차별주의

사용자 삽입 이미지

 

Twenty years ago in Lichtenhagen, a suburb of Rostock (a city in Germany's north-east region), the attacks of a racist mob against the "central admissions office for asylum requests" escalated to the biggest pogrom after the German reunification...


Y'day afternoon in Rostock-Lichtenhagen: About 5000 people - mainly young antifacsist actvists from Hamburg, Bremen and Berlin (*) - commemorated with a demonstration the victims of the pogrom and all the people affected by racist and neo-nazi violence. But the protest was also directed against the current racist policy in the entire European Union.

독일: 반유대주의 인종 차별

While the official Germany marks the anniversary of Wannsee Conference (Spiegel, 1.20), when - 70 years ago - senior Nazi leaders coordinated plans for the Holocaust, i.e the complete annihilation of the European Jewish population...

 
...a new study by a German parliament-appointed commission shows 20% of Germans harbor "latent" anti-Semitism, but anti-Jewish crimes are almost exclusively committed by the far right.


The 188-page report – which draws on several different surveys and other research – puts Germans in the middle of the pack in Europe, with a German university survey showing more latent anti-Semitism in countries such as Poland, Hungary and Portugal, and less in Italy, Britain, the Netherlands and France.


The study released y'day said the surveys show that about one-fifth of Germans agree with anti-Semitic statements, such as "Jews have too much power in business."

The study also showed that 90% of anti-Semitic crimes are committed by right-wing extremists, who number about 26,000 according to official estimates.


It recommends better coordination of local, state and federal strategies to combat anti-Semitism.


The report makes reference to "a wider acceptance in mainstream society of day-to-day anti-Jewish tirades and actions".


“Anti-Semitism in our society is based on widespread prejudices, deeply rooted clichés and on sheer ignorance about Jews and Judaism," stated one of the report’s authors, Dr. Peter Longerich of the University of London, Holocaust Research Center.


The report cites the Internet as a contributing factor to the spread of anti-Semitic thought.


"With regard to modern forms of communication - we point to the Internet in particular - it is virtually impossible to prevent the spread of such thinking," Longerich continued...(*)

시리아: 반란vs. 독재 (#3)

Yesterday's Haaretz wrote: If Assad does not use the same murderous force against the protesters that his father Hafez Assad used against tens of thousands of members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the city of Hama 30 years ago, he will not survive...


But today it seems that the Syrian dictator exactly want to smash the protest movement/popular uprising in the same way...


THE DICTATORSHIP STRIKES BACK!


Following weeks of protests, the Syrian regime appears to planning major "security" operation; all land border crossings with neighboring Jordan closed.


Since the early morning hours the Syrian army backed by tanks advance into the restive city of Deraa, in an apparent escalation of a crackdown on the protest movement.
More deaths have been reported in Syria where thousands of troops backed by tanks and heavy armour have swept into the town of Deraa in the south of the country, the large Damascus suburb of Douma and several other cities across the country. "Security" forces also continued a crackdown in the coastal town of Jableh for a second day.


Suhair al-Atassi, a Syrian human rights campaigner, says the Syrian authorities have launched a war against the country's peaceful pro-democracy movement by attacking three cities. Atassi said in a statement sent to Reuters in the early afternoon(local times): "This is a savage war designed to annihilate Syria's democrats. [...] President Bashar al-Assad's intentions have been clear since he came out publicly saying he is 'prepared for war' in his speech on March 30. I am at my home in Dummar suburb of Damascus. Come and arrest me."


Earlier today Reuters reported the following:


Syrian writers issued a declaration on Monday denouncing a bloody crackdown on protesters, a sign of outrage surging through the intellectual elite as violence has escalated dramatically in recent days.

 
Security forces and gunmen loyal to President Bashar Assad stormed the large Damascus suburb of Douma early on Monday, shooting at unarmed civilians and arresting residents, rights campaigners said.

 
"There are injured people. Scores have been arrested. The security are repeating the same pattern in all the centers of the democratic uprising. They want to put down the revolution using the utmost brutality," the rights campaigner told Reuters from Damascus.

 
Residents in the southern town of Deraa, where the protest movement first erupted last month, said security forces backed by armoured vehicles had entered the town overnight and were shooting.


An eyewitness told The Associated Press that he saw at least five corpses after security forces fired on a car... 

 
Also Monday, a senior diplomat in Amman said Syria had closed all its land border crossings with Jordan, following the deployment of Syrian army tanks in Deraa. An official told Reuters the "timing is related to what appears to be a major security operation that is taking place right now".

 
Rights groups say security forces have killed more than 350 civilians since unrest began last month. A third of the victims were killed in the past three days as the scale and breadth of a popular revolt against President Bashar Assad intensified...

 
In some of the latest violence, activists said government troops and gunmen loyal to Assad shot dead at least nine civilians on Sunday in the Mediterranean coastal town of Jabla, where troops deployed following a protest the previous night.

 

Rights campaigners said they feared Assad's forces were preparing for an attack on the town of Nawa after reports of bulldozers and military vehicles heading there. Thousands of people in the town called for the overthrow of Assad on Sunday at a funeral for protesters killed by security forces.

 
Electricity and communications were cut off in parts of Nawa by the evening and residents, some armed, erected barriers in the streets in preparation to defend against attack.

 
"Long live Syria. Down with Bashar!" mourners chanted during the funeral in Nawa, 25 km north of Deraa.
 

"Leave, leave! The people want the overthrow of the regime."

 
In Banias, south of Jabla, protest leaders said they would cut the main coastal highway unless the siege on Jabla was lifted. Jabla is home to large numbers of members of Assad's Alawite Shi'ite minority who had generally stayed away from protests in the past.

 
Mourning 'martyrs of uprising'

 
Monday's declaration was signed by 102 writers and journalists, in Syria and in exile, representing all the country's main sects, a sign that shock at the violence is crossing Syria's lines of sectarian division.


It called on Syrian intellectuals "who have not broken the barrier of fear to make a clear stand.

 
"We condemn the violent, oppressive practices of the Syrian regime against the protesters and mourn the martyrs of the uprising."

 
Signatories included Alawite figures such as former political prisoner Loay Hussein; female writers Samar Yazbek and Hala Mohammad; Souad Jarrous, correspondent for al-Sharq al-Awsat pan-Arab daily; writer and former political prisoner Yassin al-Haj Saleh and filmmaker Mohammad Ali al-Attassi.


Mansour al-Ali, a prominent Alawite figure from the city of Homs, was arrested in his home city after he spoke out against the shooting of protesters, an activist in Homs said.
