The things you own end up owning you.

The Tuzla Shipyard continues to take lives…

My ideas about “industrial vehicle experiments” are mostly a culmination of images i saw in the television, especially that of car-experiments. the ones in which there are models in cars crashing with incredible speed to a wall, and you can see the movemenets of the models in slow-motion. But though my ideas are a culmination of what i saw, i know something, in tests you do not use human beings but models. However, there are some areas in the world, which are outside the Cartesian logic, that of Istanbul in our case and the notorious Tuzla shipyard. In this shipyard, experiments are done with human beings, because in this shipyard especially, human life is worthless, to be sure, it is cheaper than installing a highly modernised technical experiment device, or section to test the lifeboats. So last week, in one of these shipyards, they put 18 people in a lifeboat and simulated an emergency situation in which the ship will be evacuated, however the rope went off and the life-boat became a death-boat. 3 workers died and others injured. We know that capitalism can have visibly dirty images in which human beings are sandboxes, and indeed we are experiencing that in Istanbul nearly every day.

Mr. Erdogan’s AKP is making holiday nowadays, all are in the south of the country, swimming and residing in 5-star yatches of wealthy businessman. and workers are dying under the salty sun of the bay of Tuzla.
