Cumartesi Anneleri 500. kez Galatasaray Meydanı’nda olacak
Kamuoyunda Cumartesi Anneleri adıyla bilinen kayıp yakınları, gözaltında kaybedilen yakınlarının akıbetini öğrenmek; sorumluların yargılanması için devletin adım atmasını sağlamak amacıyla yaptıkları oturma eylemlerinin 500.’sünü yarın gerçekleştirecek.
500. eylem için katılım ve destek çağrıları sürüyor
500. cumartesi eylemine katılımı artırmak amacıyla, kayıp yakınlarının yarınki oturma eylemine destek ve katılım çağrısının yer aldığı bir video yayınlandı. İnsan Hakları Derneği (İHD) İstanbul Şubesi Gözaltında Kayıplara Karşı Komisyon şehrin çeşitli noktalarına yapıştırdıkları çıkartma afişlerle 500. Cumartesi oturması için katılım çağrısı yaptı. 40’a yakın sanatçı İHD’nin çağrısını destekleyerek 500. Cumartesi oturmasına katılacaklarını ortak bir bildiriyle duyurdu.
Cumartesi Anneleri’nin eylemlerini düzenli takip eden, BİANET haber ajansı da Twitter üzerinden bir kampanya başlatarak, okurlarını 500. eylemlerini gerçekleştirecek kayıp yakınlarına destek olmaya teşvik etti.
Baskılara rağmen 1995’ten beri süren bir mücadele
Kayıp yakınlarının 27 Mayıs 1995’ten beri gerçekleştirdikleri oturma eylemleri, devletin hesap vermek yerine baskı ve şiddetle karşılık verdiği bir sürece dönüştü. Özellikle 90’ların sonuna doğru polis şiddeti eylemcileri hedef aldı. Polislerin saçlarından sürüklediği anneler hafızalara kazındı.
Kamuoyunda Cumartesi Anneleri olarak bilinen kayıp yakınları, gözaltında kaybedilen yakınlarının hesabını sormaya kararlılıkla devam etse de artan baskılar sonucu 19 Mart 1999‘da oturmalara ara vermek zorunda bırakıldılar. 2009’dan beriyse kayıp yakınlarının oturma eylemleri her cumartesi Galatasaray Meydanı’nda yapılmaya devam ediyor.
Gözaltında kaybedilen yurttaşların yakınlarının 500. Cumartesi oturması için yayınladıkları çağrı videosu şöyle:

Eurosphere agenda: EU summit on climate and energy, Ebola…”Cyprus President replaced by Greek PM at EU summit…In Uncategorized on October 24, 2014 at 17:37
Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades was hospitalised ahead of the first day of the EU summit yesterday (23 October), and was replaced at the summit by Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras. This is the first time that a leader from another country replaces a colleague at the EU summit table.
EU leaders are in Brussels on 23-24 October for European Council talks focusing on the bloc’s 2030 energy and climate policy. Ebola is also on the official agenda. Follow the developments live on EurActiv.
How should Europe’s media hold its leaders, its institutions, its decisions to account? Is it the fault of EU citizens that they don’t? Is there a different role for old and new media? The oD Editor argues that new media might make the difference.
The EU’s leaders are convening in Brussels to discuss EU climate policy up to 2013 today, Thursday. Some commentators hope the current uncertainties about Russian gas supplies will put Europe firmly on the path to an energy union. Others fear that weak compromises will once again prevent the establishment of uniform climate targets.
The economic and finance ministers of Germany and France on Monday announced that they will soon present proposals for warding off a new recession. Paris had previously held out the prospect of France cutting its spending by 50 billion euros if Germany matched that amount in investments. Berlin must defend its budgetary discipline, some commentators warn. Others thank Paris for launching an important debate
The treatment of protesters in Parliament Square shows the profound lack of confidence the British state has in itself – and the overwhelming need to codify its powers.

A combination of persistence and an affinity with development issues has allowed ONE’s young campaigners to, against all odds, achieve their objective of persuading half the members of the European Parliament to sign a petition to end extreme poverty in the world by 2030, writes Karen Ercoli,

MEPs voted to extend the Council’s proposed 2015 European budget by 2 billion euros, a position that may lead to tough negotiations. EurActiv France reports.
There are a number of headlines today around the EU’s request for a further €2.1bn from the UK in terms of its contribution to the EU’s budget.
Below we breakdown exactly how and why this has happened and what options the UK has now.

For over a week, the Royal Swedish Navy and Air Force have been frantically looking for a suspected Russian submarine in Ingaro Bay, the main port approach to the wharves of Stockholm. On Thursday, the search was finally called off, ending the largest Swedish naval operation since the end of the Cold War, according to Swedish Rear Admiral Anders Grenstad.
The fight to defend the artists’ wage is raging across France, yet today in the UK we believe the arts should be a market-driven competition. A living wage for performers feels a long way off.
Today in Catalonia young people grow up bilingual. It also occurs in other parts of Europe. But here a small miracle has taken place; a tradition and a culture that were in danger of being lost have been recovered.

The independence battle pitching Barcelona against MadridMAIN FOCUS: EU Parliament to vote on Commission | 22/10/2014
The EU Parliament will vote definitively on the new Commission in Strasbourg today, Wednesday. Everything points to a majority for the team of designated Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. The Commission will suffer from the conflict over how to tackle the recession, some commentators predict. Others hope Juncker will provide an answer to the growing populism in Europe.
14 lessons from the Scottish referendumopen Democracy News Analysis – by Peter McColl and Adam Ramsay
A month on from Scotland’s independence vote, here are 14 lessons it taught us.
1) People care
The concept of apathy has always been offensive: it implies that people don’t care about their neighbours, their families, or even themselves. No. The problem is that people are alienated from politics. They have been convinced that engaging in the world as a citizen will do nothing to transform it. It’s been said a thousand times, but the Scottish referendum showed that when people do think they can make a difference, they most certainly do engage

US just replied Erdoğan again. Turkey doing Ballet internationally but with the last legal package more authoritarian domestically…In Uncategorized on October 23, 2014 at 14:21
A journalist working for Press TV on the Turkish-Syrian border was killed on Sunday in what are claimed to be suspicious circumstances.
Hakan Çelik (25), a former intern of bianet in 2013, has been killed in action by ISIS in Kobane. As bianet, we will always remember him with his hard work, smile and warm character.
It now appears that Kobane will not fall. But Turkey’s apathy towards the plight of the city, coupled with their stealthy support for ISIS, is something the Kurds will never forget.
The international community should support a secular, multi-religious and multi-ethnic Rojava with democratic ambitions, that is a threat for IS and equally for the conservative Islamic government in Turkey. This is democracy in action in the Middle East.
In Turkey, political parties are evaluated by the Constitution Court according to their commitment to the 1982 Constitution. But you have to look to Europe for neutral universal principles, or something close.
