We are Yeldeğirmeni Solidarity from Turkey. We formed this solidarity group after the Gezi park occupation. It’s a neighbourhood Solidarty project in İstanbul/ Kadıköy.
About 2 months ago we occupied one bulding in our neighbourhood. It s a half building and it was empty for the last 20 years like garbage in front of our eyes and our streets. So we decided to occupy the building and make it a public place with a social center. There is a lot of work to do and we didn’t publish about it.
On Wednesday there were searches and arrests in Wuppertal and other cities in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and Austria. The federal state prosecuter in Germany targeted in Wuppertal the “Anatolische Föderation”. Those involved are accused of “supporting” respectively “member of a terrorist group in a foreign country” (paragraph 129b). In Germany four people got arrested, 2 from Cologne and 2 from Wuppertal.

11. Juni, 2013
Die andauernde Besetzungen des Taksim Platzes und Gezi Parks wurden heute Morgen von der Polizei angegriffen (11. Juni 2013). Nach dem gestrigen Treffen des Ministerrats kam die Polizei am frühen Morgen, ungefähr um 7 Uhr, zum Platz. Während die Repressionsorgane Tränengas verschossen, gaben sie die Erklärung ab, dass sie den Park nicht angreifen werden. Hunderte Polizeibeamte betraten den Taksim Platz und proklamierten, dass es keinen Angriff auf den Park geben wird, sondern dass nur Transparente entfernt werden. Während diese am Atatürk Kulturzentrum abgenommen wurden, wollte eine andere Gruppe Polizisten die Zelte auf dem Platz beseitigen. Die Leute versuchten es zu unterbinden und die Polizei griff die Protestierenden mit Tränengas an. Während der Polizeiattacke kamen viele Leute zum Platz, um sich gegen diesen faschistischen Angriff zu wehren. Um die Menschen hiervon abzuhalten, feuerte die Polizei Tränengas in die U-Bahn und die Haltestelle Taksim wurde geschlossen.
The going on occupation of the Taksim Square and Gezi Park has been attacked by the police this morning. After the meeting of the Council of Ministers yesterday, the police came to the square early in the morning at about 7 oclock, while shooting tear gas, the police made announcements that they are not going to attack to the park.Hundreds of police entered to Taksim Square pleading that there will be no attack to the park and saying that only the banners will be moved away. While the pankarts on AKM are moved away another group of police wanted to move away the tents on the square. The people wanted to stop the police and police attacked to the people with tear gas.
On the 14th day of the Gezi Park protests, resisters are responded once again with riot control vehicles and tear gas!
The only difference between the police raid which happened 10 days ago at 5 am and today’s raid is the timing. Today, the police intervention started at 7 am in Taksim for a change; however, there are already tens of injured people and a police blockage causing public worry.
Am 1. Juni waren wir gegen 15 Uhr auf dem Taksim Platz. Durch die Zusammenstöße, die am Morgen begannen, war die Polizei gezwungen, die Gegend zu verlassen. Zwei Stunden lang gab es keine Polizeipräsenz im gesamten Kerngebiet der Stadt. Die Leute besetzen indessen den Taksim Platz und den Gezi Park. Die Menschenmenge war riesig. Der gesamte Park, alle Plätze und Straßen, die zu diesem Gebiet führten, waren voller Leute. Alle Bauabsperrungen, die die Westseite des Parks absperrten, wurden durch die Protestierenden zerstört.
