The Istanbul Industrial Workers of the World have released the following statement:
English translation follows in response to this post.
Turkish Weapons Boycott
I've seen people asking how they can boycott companies selling weapons to the Turkish state, here's how: Contact a Trade Union.
#RiseUp4Rojava made a complete list of companies supplying the Turkish military, find out what companies are near you and research into whether or not the workers are organized.
In 1973 when the fascist Pinochet regime launched its coup in Chile, unionized Rolls Royce workers organized to sabotage the Chilean supply line, leaving Pinochet's fighter jet engines to rust. Today, Rolls Royce supplies the Turkish regime with jet engines as it invades Rojava. (Rolls Royce workers currently organize as members of Unite)
Look up these companies, contact their workers. If the company's workforce is not unionized then you need to find a way to ensure trade union literature gets to them, find a way to provide them the means with which to self-organize.
Only workers' solidarity can defeat state tyranny.
The following is a list of corporations who are benefiting from arrangements with the Turkish state.
Organize a blockade or other action to let them know we won’t let them profit from genocide.
I've started collecting a list on my website of contemporary autonomous collectives. I plan on adding their rough population, so I can ultimately have a count of there are X people living in anarchy today.
@ me with more, please. (I literally just started it so it doesn't have the Zapatistas or the International Commune of Rojava, even though I've talked about like, both of those today.) But @ me with any, please!
