INTERNATIONAL ANARCHIST MOVEMENT-TURKEY:
RESIST THE IMF/WB IN ISTANBUL:
Over the past two decades there has been a slow but steady growth in anarchist ideas in one non-traditional setting- the country of Turkey. Turkey today hosts a wide and growing anarchist movement, one relatively unknown outside of eastern Europe. This fall the movement will contest state power once more, as they protest the upcoming meeting of the International Monetary Fund and the World bank in Istanbul. The following notice first came to Molly's attention at the website of the Polish anarchist news service the Centrum Informacji Anarchistycznej. It has also been previously published at the Anarkismo website. The following has been slightly edited for English grammar and spelling.
Representatives and bureaucrats of multinational capitalist companies will be in İstanbul in 6 – 7 October for the annual meeting of the World Bank and the IMF (International Money Foundation) where they will make decisions to blacken billions of people’s lives.
Another peak gathering to protect the benefits of capitalist sovereigns, where economic packages which have no other use than adding another ring to the exploitation chain for poor billions and for the future of the planet that we live on, reconstructions and austerity policies, constitutional accordance conditions will be discussed…
The experiences of real life (Argentina, Jamaica, Ecuador, Nigeria, Kenya etc.) evidently showed that the World Bank and the IMF policies that are applied have no benefit to people other than offering indigence and exploitation, and there is no other way. The IMF and the World Bank which are the leading architects of globalism of capitalism, are the primary responsible instruments for the banishment of poor people from their habitats and their homes by urban transformation policies (to ennoble the term), having property rights on water which is the primary need of life by a few companies, by condemning the local breeder to global capitalist patrons via agriculture policies, to add new rings to the chains of people who work by new employment legislation.
13.000 robbers and many more armed forces who take orders to protect them will be walking amongst us in those days. Probably, they will show us hell! Frisks, ID checks, road blocks, fencing etc…
Come on, let us show hell to them in those days! Let’s turn our bonfire into their nightmare!
We would like to organise some concerts, workshops, exhibitions, movie presentations, conversations and activities against the IMF and the World Bank between 1-8 October. Sheltering needs for those coming from other cities and other countries will be met. People who want to participate in preparations for the activities and organisations can get in touch with us via the contact information. Also, those who want to receive regular information regarding the preparation phase of the activities can visit our web site that will be updated periodically.
Hoping to raise the international solidarity in the bonfire days of resistance!
