After days of hesitation and negotiation, the government has finally decided to evacuate the Taksim Commune, where thousands camped in Gezi Park and which tens of thousands visited every night. Police attacked Gezi Park yesterday evening and after evacuating it using tear gas and, as a novelty, water cannon apparently supplemented with a special kind of chemical since it burnt the skin of everyone it touched, razed the tents, the infirmary, the kitchens and the library established there to the ground.

On May Day 2013, the police poured tonnes of tear gas on tens of thousands of workers and youth in different quarters of Istanbul in order to stop them from approaching Taksim Square. The government had decided that this square , the traditional venue for May Day celebrations and home to daily political actions big and small, was to be shut to demonstrations this year because development work was being done on a massive scale involving huge excavated pits making it dangerous for crowds. In a ludicrous act, the governor of Istanbul stood atop a mound at the edge of one of those pits to hold a...

Istanbul has become a battlefield covered by tear gas. The police, no doubt at the behest of Tayyip Erdogan and his AKP government, have been attacking protestors in the centre of the city, near Taksim Square, for five consecutive days. This would have been no news at all: Turkish police are famous for their brutality in dealing with demonstrations unwelcome to the government. Only a month ago, on May Day, they had dispersed a gathering of thousands of workers and unionists using tear gas unsparingly. So nothing new on the police front. This time is different for another reason.

L’assassinat de Chokri Belaïd, secrétaire général du Parti unifié des patriotes démocrates et un des leaders du Front populaire pour la réalisation des objectifs de la révolution, dont fait partie son courant, est un fait d’énorme importance pour la révolution tunisienne et les luttes de classes dans le monde arabe.

We will take the women, then the guys one by one… A woman activist who was on Tahrir square to celebrate the anniversary of the Egyptian revolution of 25 January and to protest the Morsi regime explains that these words uttered by one of the assailants during the group sexual harassment she was subjected to have been engraved forever in her mind. No other words could make it clearer that the actual aim of these attacks, ever increasing in numbers, is to deter women from taking part in protests and exclude them from politics. In a nutshell, to tear them away from the revolution!
