(en) TURKEY, MAYDAY 2010 - THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY COMPROMISE
The social opposition which turned Taksim Square and the surrounding area into hell in the
1th Mays of 2007-2008-2009 is almostly faded when the state opened the Square after 32
years. In the past three years, we- the anarchists who managed to convert the streets of
Istanbul to resistance area, are far from feeling surprise. Because we know that; the
"Taksim Square fetishism" was just an illusion created by the state. On that day, a
treacherous game played in the Taksim square which was surrounded by police barricades,
scanned by cameras inch by inch, monitored by helicopters all the time. Masters and so
called slaves collaborated and they celebrated a holidays with all their spiritlessness.
What holidays are they talking about? The workers who had a symbolic claim on 8-hour
working time were executed by state 130 years ago.
