Ekmek, adalet, özgürluk! (Turkish for ‘Bread, justice, freedom!’) contains two interviews with Turkish anarchists. The first is with members of the anarchist-communist group Kolektif 26A, who have operated an anti-capitalist commune in Istanbul for five years, working and living together while pushing back the state and capital and socialising the concepts of anarchism.The second discusses the struggle of anarchist women in Turkey, arguably the most patriarchal state on the European continent, and the efforts to claim equality against active state oppression and misogynistic custom and tradition and to build a movement that is simultaneously anti-gender hierarchy and anti-capitalist yet inclusive and communitarian. Ekmek, adalet, özgürluk! is both an introduction to the praxis of anarchism in Turkey and a discussion of the complexities being grappled with outside the Western sphere of anarchism.
