Statement from the syndicalist SAC International Committee expressing solidarity to comrades in Turkey.
To our comrades struggling in Istanbul.
Teargas, batons and outrageous state repression being deployed against people protecting their park from being turned into yet another shopping centre.
Attacks on makeshift medical centres treating wounded protesters. Water cannons showering everyone. The police is crackdown is violent and indiscriminate. Cuts, privatization and neoliberal reforms are other forms of violence affecting people, as in Turkish Istanbul as in Swedish Husby. State and capitalist violence must be met and challenged through organizing efforts; locally, regionally, and globally. From Istanbul to Husby.
SAC - The Syndicalists voices its support for all people in struggle on the streets of Istanbul and Ankara, as well as for the KESK, DISK, TTB, TMMOB and TDHB, the unions behind the general strike called in protest against the savagery of the police.
All power to the people!
