Wave of Repression Prepared

Istanbul Governor Hüseying Avni Mutlu has tweeted that one of those who have thrown molotovs this morning is a member of the illegal organization Devrimci Karargah (Revolutionary Headquarter).

The importance of this claim stems from the fact that a few years ago members of the three legal socialist parties SDP, TÖP and ESP have been detained for almost one year without a trial on fabricated charges and without any proof - the claim was they were members of Devrimci Karargah - and had to be released eventually. Since 70 members of the SDP had been arrested today it looks like the Devrimci Karargah claim will once again serve to try people on terrorist charges without any proof.
