İstanbul: Anarchist intervention outside Bakırköy women’s prisons


‘Every day is ours!’

On March 8th, ‘international women’s day’, the Anarchist Women’s collective held a public announcement in front of Bakırköy women’s prisons, where revolutionary women are imprisoned. The activists stated among others that ‘We know that neither freedom, nor our dreams can be held captive, because the spirit of women will never be enslaved…’ They also chanted once again that prisoners are not alone, holding the banner ‘FREEDOM’ and black-purple balloons, which they released into the sky. This protest was held by anarcha-feminists, who were barefoot, an action which symbolizes the State’s torture.
