call to rethink the process of the 13th Istanbul Biennial

Nettime - 9 June, 2013 - 09:19
We wrote the following text on May 25th, 2013. With the beginning of the protests at Gezi Park, our priorities shifted and we decided to postpone its circulation. Today, especially after “last week’s“ experiences, when we rethink what happened on May 10th, we are even more convinced of the urgency of this letter.

#occupyGezi The 12th Night

Nettime - 8 June, 2013 - 23:34
Hi, I am forwarding another article by my colleague David Barchard to sum up todays events. with regards Andreas The Twelfth Night (by David Barchard) Saturday, the 12th day of the Gezi Park demonstrations, passed peacefully, though as this letter was being written, thousands of demonstrators were once again converging on Taksim Square. The media, so far at least, have once more ignored a major development. An nearby eyewitness observer commented in an e-mail: “Just this minute as I am writing this to you tens of thousands of people are shouting and protesting and walking towards Taksim, I can see them from my Terrace and it is so loud, but what do the leading TV stations NTV, CNN, SKY and Haber T do? Not a single word !! They still haven't learned their lessons. As I write, CNN Turk, now famous for its ‘penguins’ documentary is running its evening news bulletin—and the news is entirely about a meeting between the prime minister and the president of the Grand Nation Assembly.

Chapuling in the Streets Taksim Tahrir Sintagma Puerta del Sol Plaza de Mayo Zuccotti Square St. Paul?s. Everywhere around the world we are dancing in the streets. Dancing with rage, dancing with joy, dancing gravediggers on the graves of our masters. We are all Turks, all Greeks, all Cypriots. And now we are all chapuling, chapuling as we sing out loud our refusal to accept any more, our refusal to watch them destroy parks to make way for shopping malls, our refusal to accept their obscene injustices, refusal to sit by and let them destroy the planet, refusal to let them take our world from us, refusal to accept their stupid arrogance. So dance Istanbul, dance Ankara, dance Izmir, and the world dances with you. Cairo, Athens, Istanbul, Madrid, New York, London, Buenos Aires, Frankfurt, Cochabamba, Stockholm, and more and more and more and more and more. John Holloway, Puebla, 6 June 2013 Posted:

Sultan I. Erdogan insists on the projects for Taksim, get things personal like his processors Ben Ali. Mubarak, El-Assad, en AbdelHamid.... and with his aggression, over-rules the moderate approach shown by Gul (President) and Arinc (Deputy Prime Minister) in his absence (BTW these two are Gulen's men). Tayyip Sultan being rejected in Tunis and Morocco, protested and critiqued returns to the town with anger. Police attacks with gasses and water cannons in Ankara just before his arrive, at workers striking in solidarity with protesters... in reaction in Ankara tens of thousands people gathers marching all over right at the moment revolting in peace, to welcome the Tayyip Sultan. In Istanbul, Taksim also many tens of thousands are gathering to give a warm welcome to the Sultan The I.

Concerning: Felix, here are the demands of the protesters. Taksim Solidarity press release 05-06-13 To The Government of The Republic of Turkey and The Public Citizens have been expressing their democratic outrage in Taksim Istanbul and all around the country against the insensitivity of the government for the public concern about the de-facto destruction of the Taksim Gezi Park that took place around 10 PM on May 27th. We share the pain of Abdullah Comert?s and Mehmet Ayvalitas? families and wish to extend our get-well wishes to thousands of wounded citizens. Unfortunately, the government insists on its violent, repressive and prohibitionist policies against the public?s wish to express its democratic and human rights based demands. We would like it to be known that we are making an extreme effort to reach a social climate where no one is hurt, tensions are resolved and democratic demands can be expressed. For these reasons, as Taksim Resistance, we are waiting for the government to take substantive

bwo INURA list original to: Full-Page Ad Inspired By Turkish Protests Is One Of Indiegogo's Fastest Campaigns Ever As protests have rocked Turkey over the past few days, three Turkish professionals in the U.S. decided on Sunday that they had to take some action. Turning to their technology backgrounds, the trio launched a crowd-sourced fundraising campaign on Indiegogo to buy a full-page ad in he front section of the New York Times in support of their fellow Turkish citizens who’ve clashed with the government across dozens of cities. In just a matter of hours, they’d jump-started the fastest major politics funding campaigns in Indiegogo’s history. The campaign received donations from 50 countries at a clip of over $2,500 per hour over its first day, crossing its $53,800 goal in about 21 hours, according to Indiegogo, and it’s at over $85,000 just 36 hours after lau

dear Felix, this is Orsan, based in the Netherlands but I have been following Turkey closely since I moved here in 2004. At that time I was working for the DISK, progressive union confederation. I was also working for a PM at the parliament as an adviser. Erdogan government kicked off its full fledged neoliberal offensive towards social and labour rights and nature, but also at the same time towards the 'state class' (traditional secular elite in turkey fusion of large capital groups and military, bureaucratic cadre) just before I left. After that, I have been intensely following and writing about the country, AKP rule within the global political economy context. So I know the organısed elements on the ground, context and have also been followıng the OccupyGezı uprising from the beginning. So I could try to briefly inform you and others: As you know the 'unrest' sparked from the Gezi Park which is located net to the Taksim Square. Where big clashes took place last month between police and the people ıt

Here it is. *Better late than never: What is #OccupyGezi and what does it promise (now)?<> * I wrote a post<> last Thursday on Occupy Gezi (#occupygezi) I was both terrified by the extent of police violence towards a couple dozens of peaceful activists and excited about Turkey’s own Occupy moment, which, I personally believed, had arrived much belatedly. Over the last weekend, people in Turkey have flexed their political muscles more strongly than ever, both in the streets and on social media, thereby creating, according to some, the biggest civil disobedience movement of the country in history<>. Last week, I was wondering why Turkey’s Occupy moment has arrived *now*. Since then, many people on social media have debated whether Occupy Gezi is Turkey
