About Ali Kitapçı (Anarcho-syndicalist comrade from Turkey who was killed in 10 October 2015)

Comrades,

As you know there had been a bombing in Ankara/Turkey in demonstration at10 October 2015 in which 107 people killed. One of the victtims was a an active anarcho syndicalist comrade; Ali Kitapçı.

I present to your attention statement of libcom:

Now we are preparing a biografiy about him. He first got involved with the anarchist movement in England in the middle of 1980's (around 1984-1985) and became an anarchist in this period. But we have no connection with anyone knows about this period. We only know some memories that he told before his death. He was studing language course in Oxford Acadamy... As he told to many people; he met some anarchist during a strike (probably on a factory or mine, we are not sure) and impressed with their struggle. And perhaps he lived in some squats for some time.

As i told you these informations are unclear. So it will be great if we find someone knows him. We thought that you can help us to find someone who knows him from that period.

With solidarity
