DO NOT PUT OUR ANGER TO THE TEST, STAY AWAY FROM THE FAMILIES OF OUR MARTYRS, OUR NEIGHBOURHOODS AND OUR CHILDREN!
BEFORE ELECTIONS YOU ARE TRYING TO COVER UP YOUR CORRUPTION WITH PROVOCATIONS AND THE PEOPLE’S BLOOD!
CEASE YOUR PROVOCATIONS AND SAY WHO KILLED BERKIN AND HAND THEM OVER TO THE PEOPLE!
Berkin became immortal on March 11, after 269 days. He became immortal in reply to the injustice, tyranny, pillage and plunder of fascism. In every one of these 269 days, while he was dying, the injustice of fascism was continually put on the spot and a reckoning demanded from it.
Every bullet, every gas canister fired at our children like Berkin is actually being fired at the future of our country.
The aim of the monopolies that collaborate with imperialism, whose representative is the fascist AKP government, is one of condemning the future of the country to one of darkness.
And they are continuing to engage in pillage and plunder amid this darkness.
They want those like Berkin who are in the midst of the darkness and seek to bring light to it to walk to their deaths. They want to bring them death to overwhelm them, silence them, destroy them.
You made a mistake, AKP government guardians of oppression, and your judiciary and police…
You made a mistake, you Ulkers, Sabancis and Caliks who pile profit upon profit…
You made a mistake, you imperialists, above all America, who smear blood all over the world!
In this country there are people like Berkin…
In this country there are people like Berkin, and people like Muharrem who get their instructions from Berkin!
In this country there are people like Berkin and there are also people like Alisan who will demand a reckoning from America, the killer of the peoples!
Do whatever you want, practise as much tyranny as you wish, try to increase hunger, poverty and corruption to whatever level suits you…
But you did not succeed and you will not succeed.
Because this is a picture of your own creation,
You created the Berkins, the Muharrems, the Alisans…
Every Berkin who is born is born with 2,000 dollars of debt!
This is the kind of country where all its children are born owing 2,000 dollars.. They are born having to pay a debt for which their own mothers and fathers were not responsible…
For this reason the only way to change this picture will be by eliminating you!
For this reason thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions are in the streets to demand a reckoning and to eliminate your government!
YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COVER UP YOUR CORRUPTION WITH PROVOCATIONS!
During your time in government you quickly managed what no previous government had managed to achieve. You were a loyal servant of America. The evil consequences of this are the growing hunger, poverty and corruption of the people who pay so that you could stuff the houses of your sons full of money…
As the truth comes to light, the lies and demagogy that brought your government to power and have kept it there are being smashed to smithereens. The truths we have known and seen are now being seen by all people.
The truth is tearing your lies to pieces.. Your sale of the homeland, your hostility to the people are being announced through the money you have tried to launder with lots of shoeboxes and rooms…
This is why today you are resorting to provocations to cover up Berkin’s death.
By engaging in provocations before the election you are hoping to cover up your corruption and play the role of the “victim”.
We warn all AKP government ministers, province and city heads and Tayyip Erdogan above all!
Give it up, TAYYIP!
Desist from your provocations!
We know that Berkin’s murderer acted on your orders.
We know, and state it here, that those who created a provocation by turning up in front of Berkin’s house today to shout “Allah Akbar” did so on your orders!
Stay away from the families of our martyrs!
Stay away from those like Berkin who struggle for justice and freedom!
We are the Front. Beware of confusing us with the slimy Fethullah.
We will not allow this and will frustrate all provocations!
We know what it means when you attacked Berkin’s funeral ceremony with gas canisters and plastic bullets when it was attended by more than three million people.
We know this from May 1, 1977…
There was no intent other than to commit a MASSACRE when you used gas and bullets on millions, young people, old people, children, women and men who had absolutely nowhere to run and who had no way of protecting or defending themselves.
Provocations, massacres… We will not allow you to cover up your corruption, massacres, thefts, plunder, sale of the homeland and hostility to the people with our deaths.
Yesterday, in the face of your provocations, revolutionaries, with the Front to the fore, protected the people, we are doing it today and will continue to do it.
We will not tolerate your provocations in the areas we have laboured hard to create, either at our funerals, or in the vicinity of our martyrs’ families.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO REVEAL YOUR LIES, CORRUPTION, TYRANNY, PLUNDER AND EXPLOITATION TO THE PEOPLE!
WE WAITED PATIENTLY!
If you approach and try to stir up the neighbourhoods we protect with our lives and sweat, you may depend on it that your kind, and especially Tayyip Erdogan, will be buried seven floors under in the depths of hell by us. You will not even be able to locate your own bits.
Do not test our anger that has been increased by Berkin’s pain!
BERKIN WAS THE CHILD OF HOPE AND THE CHILD OF THE FRONT!
Not just an Alevi,
Not just a child,
BERKIN WAS THE CHILD OF THE FRONT!
BERKIN IS THE CHILD OF HOPE!
HE WAS JUST ONE OF THE HONOURABLE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THIS COUNTRY!
YESTERDAY SEVCAN, YESTERDAY IRFAN, YESTERDAY SEZGIN, YESTERDAY FERHAT, TODAY THE NAME WAS BERKIN!
So it seems it is all right for children to be born with two thousand dollars of debt,
It seems it is all right to talk of the child generals of Palestine,
It seems it is all right for their mothers to labour or do housework…
But those who go out into the streets with sticks in the hands and wearing a red mask covering their faces deserve death!
In this country every child is BORN WITH TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS OF DEBT.
They pay it by not drinking milk, not eating meat and not going to school. The milk is for the children of the rich to drink, meat is for the children of the rich to eat. Your children study in America. Of course the stick in Berkin’s hands will defend their rights.
The hands of our children will not be collecting pears.
In other countries, everyone is pleased about the children of Palestine resisting tyranny, and nice things are written about it. You have called them the “child generals”. But in our country, when children take sticks in their hands, it is said that “they are children, they are using children” and they do not see and do not want to see that it is this plundering and tyrannical system that ultimately bears the guilt for such a thing happening.
IN COUNTRIES LIKE OURS, THE CHILDREN GROW UP EARLY…
IN COUNTRIES LIKE OURS, OUR CHILDREN GROW UP EARLY RESISTING HUNGER AND POVERTY AND NOT GIVING IN TO OPPRESSION…
BERKIN GREW UP EARLY!
THERE WERE NO LULLABIES FOR BERKIN,
NO GAMES, PARKS, INSECTS POLLINATING FLOWERS –
BERKIN GREW UP UNDER FASCISM!
FASCISM’S WATER CANNONS, TRUNCHEONS, GAS CANISTERS, ITS EDUCATION SYSTEM RELYING ON MONEY AND ROTE MEMORISATION WAS WHAT EDUCATED HIM!
YOU EDUCATED HIM, YOU AKP GOVERNMENT HEADED BY TAYYIP!
FOR THIS REASON 14-YEAR-OLDS WHO HAVE STICKS IN THEIR HANDS,
BRIGHT RED SCARVES OVER THEIR FACES,
CHILDREN LIKE BERKIN ARE OUR HONOUR AND PRIDE!
BERKIN IS YOUR WORK AND IS ALSO WHAT WILL PUT AN END TO YOU,
HE IS THE IMAGE OF YOUR END!
OUR STRUGGLE FOR BREAD, JUSTICE AND FREEDOM THAT WE ARE NOW WINNING IS THE GOOD NEWS OF INDEPENDENT TURKEY!
Berkin and all the children up to now that you have killed or are in prison, suffering from hunger and poverty, overwhelmed by exams in an unscientific education system that is not free of charge may depend on this,
Berkin’s family who are still in mourning and all the families of our martyrs may depend on this, that we will make you pay a price.
DO NOT TEST OUR ANGER,
KEEP AWAY FROM THE FAMILIES OF OUR MARTYRS,
AND OUR CHILDREN!
REVEAL WHO BERKIN’S KILLERS ARE!
THE BEST LIERS KNOW THE TRUTH,
YOU KNOW VERY WELL WHAT PROVOCATIONS WILL BE COMMITTED IN THE CITY SQUARES!
YOU ARE TRYING IN THIS WAY TO CONCEAL YOUR MASSACRE AND PROVOCATION PREPARATIONS!
BEFORE ELECTIONS YOU ARE TRYING TO COVER UP YOUR CORRUPTION WITH PROVOCATIONS AND THE PEOPLE’S BLOOD
GIVE IT UP!
CEASE YOUR PROVOCATIONS!
FOR EVERY PROVOCATION YOU COMMIT WE WILL TAKE REPRISALS!
GIVE UP YOUR PROVOCATIONS,
STATE WHO BERKIN’S KILLERS ARE AND HAND THEM OVER TO THE PEOPLE!
TO OUR MUSLIM PEOPLE; Do not tolerate those who would not even show respect for a mother and father in mourning. Do not close your eyes to those who were brought in front of their house to shout “Allah Akbar” as a provocation, do not be their accomplices, reveal them…
Know the pain of the families of the martyrs as your own! Recognise the truth as opposed to the lies of the AKP!
WARNING NO. 1: To the aesthetic beauty Mehmet Ali Sahin;
Do not engage in provocations! The pain of the families of our martyrs is not like the pain from your face lift. You say that you did not attend the funeral of five policemen killed in a traffic accident. You not very smart aesthetic beauty… You will not be very aesthetic either with a missing tongue. Berkin did not die in a traffic accident, you killed him.
WARNING NO. 2: If there are any attacks on our neighbourhoods or on the families of our martyrs, the hands of the people’s children will not be collecting pears…
