Dear activists, participators and media workers,

So we as the ungovernable of resistanbul gathered here to announce our own riotistanbul decisions against the decisions the governors made.

We are announcing our proposal as an economic and social program for a libertarian anti-capitalist way of life that we have already started to work for public, as a proposal for a way out of global capitalism. Our program is formed by some resistance tecnics that can dig down the roots of the capitalist world system that has colonized all parts of life.
