The 1980 Coup D’Etat depicts a pivotal moment in the history of Turkey. When the National Security Council declared the Coup on September 12th, extended martial law throughout the country and abolished the Parliament and the Government; not only did it end the hegemonic crisis but also paved the way to rebuild and restructure the society in order to facilitate the economic and social integration to the neoliberal order. Keşke Bir Öpüp Koklasaydım, a book of oral history, focuses on the families of the revolutionists that were directly targeted by the Military during and after the Coup.

"Ces trente dernières années ont vu des bouleversements colossaux transformer ce pays.
The second 'ecosocialist school' organized by the IIRE was a successful, truly international meeting.
The final large activity of the IIRE in 2013 was the second 'ecosocialist school'. Each year, we organize several educational activities, the largest of which is a three-week school for political activists. Reflecting the increasing importance of the ecological question for progressive activists, we drew up a new program for our three-week school a couple of years ago and renamed it the 'ecosocialist school'.
The IIRE organises in July its Fourth International Women’s Seminar together with the women’s commission of the Fourth International.
Participants from all over the world will discuss women’s struggles for emancipation in different cultures, regions, visions and social contexts. Overcoming euro-centrism by developing a plural feminism is one of the aims of this global exchange.
The ecofeminist struggles and an ecofeminist world view is the second topic of the seminar: putting a women’s prospective to our ecosocialist alternative.
Last April, the Clean Clothes Campaign held a series of workshops and a seminar at the IIRE from the 18th until the 23rd of April. We had planned a short article and interview with the organisers. But then the catastrophe in Dhaka, Bangladesh arrived.
Instead of an article, we publish the urgent appeal by the Clean Clothes Campaign: www.cleanclothes.org/news
