Dear Comrades, Dear Friends of the fight,
As we all know, especially the youth and the peoples of the world are rising in rebellion. In the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, Chile, Spain, young people took the squares and to the streets for raising their voices against unemployment. Even more painful with each passing day in our country ,unemployment has become a big problem, as well as the universities are blockaded by the Higher Education Institution being the council of the military coup and AKP(Justice and Development Party) Government has been trying to take the whole country under its own hegemony and getting more autocratic day by day, against all of these unfair effects ,as the young we haven’t kept in silence as well.
Before the elections, on 8th-9th-10th of the June in Taksim Square, our boykott and reasonable calling attentions to injustices will be serve as a warning to the government ,you should read our announcing text at below.
Tunisia,Tahrir,Madrid now İstanbul…
Against unemployment and Higher Education Instution
COME ON THE YOUNG TO THE SQUARE!
Unemployed youth in Tunisia were on the square.
Young people who want the freedom of Egypt’s Tahrir Square were on the square too.
In Madrid and Spain young people were on the square as well.
They brought the government inducing to them and the opposing party to heel.
Now it’s our turn, why are we waiting?
As we realized that nothing is the same as they said. The More we work, the better future is not expected. .As we work we don’t earn, we don’t earn.
We study for YGS, we are prevented by codes.
We desire to be a teacher , we are prevented by KPSS.(Public Personnel Selection Exam)
There is no certicifate which we got, no language which we learned, no course which we went , nonetheless we are unemployed.
We are faced with unemployment and poverty deemed proper by AKP.
Ohh for their followers??For them, many tenders,the crazy projects,..
The more people react to this ,the more conditions get worse.
The anger of young people exposed to squiting pressurized cold water, using pepper gas on them,striking with a truncheon, advance on them with panzers…
Now it is time to recognize our conditions, it s time to end this affairs
Bosses are stoking their pockets with our future.
Our future has been stealing from us and it is we to put a stop this.We will take back our future from the ones who are encoding our future and taking the bread out of our mouths.
In Tunisia, as in Tahrir, as well as in Spain, as in Taksim, the young people will fill the squares.
The Tksim Square on 8th-9th-10th of the June will be of youth. Three days three nights we will be in Taksim Square.
We will meet at 12.00o’clock at Taksim Tram Station.
To take the future in our own hands,COME ON THE YOUNG TO THE SQUARE
