Photographer's Note

These 78 days lived in jerry-built tents on streets, told a lot to workers on solidarity basis. They lost a friend, Hamdullah Uysal-Samsun Tekel worker- in this period. Public spirit among tents grew from day to day.

After decleration of the State Council that the 30 days period given to workers to accept 4C or not, is no longer valid, the trade unions decided to abate the tents city they have built in Tuna Caddesi- Sakarya

Social tension was raised and workers did not want to end this struggle with a police intervention.

Trade Unions announced the date 1st of April for the great meeting date. Tekel workers will be back, with collected hopes for gaining their previous employee rights.

çözülen bir yün yumağı
akıp giden günlerimiz

savrulan yapraklar gibi
akıp giden günlerimiz

bir suçluyu aklar gibi
akıp giden günlerimiz
sanki bir sır saklar gibi
sessiz sitemsiz..

bir kitaba başlar gibi
koşarken yavaşlar gibi
ölen arkadaşlar gibi
sessiz sitemsiz..

(lyrics of a Livaneli song-günlerimiz)
