Revolutionary Anarchist Activity was established 11 years ago to carry on the struggle for anarchism in this land in an organized manner. ---- We revolutionary anarchists went to every street we could go to, we gathered in every square we could gather, despite every attack of the state for 11 years, we stood by every oppressed we could reach. Because we were the street, the square was ours. Because we are the oppressed. We did not continue our struggle only in the streets, squares and action areas. With the awareness that the vital is also political, we have tried to continue our struggle in the homes we live in, in the meetings we discuss, and wherever we work. However, as the Revolutionary Anarchist Federation, we could not achieve what we wanted in the end. At the point reached today, we take responsibility for this.

We made many mistakes in this whole process, but we did not insist on our mistakes. Sometimes we realized our mistake, sometimes our comrade told us; we even understood it sometimes through the words of people who did not agree with us. We have not closed our ears to any person whose sincerity we trust. And most importantly, we never hesitated to apologize, we gave our self-criticism and continued our struggle. Whether it's to distribute our newspaper in the early hours of the morning, in which every line is our work, whether it's during strikes at construction sites from midnight to the morning before it's snowy or winter, or on the streets that are blinded by tear gas; we have always continued our struggle.

Looking back at each other, we can easily see that there were many reasons and values that brought us together. Although the governments tried to eradicate peoples, women, workers, LGBTI+s with massacres, pogroms, genocides and murders in the lands we live in, the governments failed to eradicate all differences. But we have decided not to be a cog in this nationalist and militarist order.

Anarchist organizations that started to appear in these lands since the last years of the Ottoman Empire were so effective that they forced the Ottoman Empire to participate in an anti-anarchist interstate cooperation. But in the lands we live in, anarchism waited years before it could form an effective movement. During this time, all oppositionists, revolutionaries and libertarians raised their voices against the oppression policies of the state. Many left and socialist parties were established, but despite the opportunities that were extracted from impossibilities against all kinds of oppression, no movement could reach the organization that would realize the social revolution, even after years. As revolutionary anarchists, we address this issue.

We have always been told that it is impossible if the anarchism in question, that is, to establish a life without a man's servant, without taking orders from anyone and without dominating anyone, that is, without a state and without power. If it is impossible to create spaces that are not part of the system and that can enable people to realize themselves, then yes we anarchists want the impossible. In many parts of the world, anarchists carried out many actions that were deemed impossible, even revolution in Iberia. For some, a revolution may be to take over the administration of a state, but for us, revolution is much more than that and much more than destruction. We want to be the revolution itself, not just to realize the revolution, so we are aware that the most important thing is not reaching the result, but the way to the result.

As we continue on our way, we know that every bump we pass, every hole we enter, every stone that touches our feet is a part of this road. We were never afraid to walk this path. And at the same time, we know that this road that we have entered, these bumps, these pits, these stones will change us. We will try to create the world we imagine before we start, but we know that we will not remain the person we started as we continue on this path. We want to establish a new world and we live for this world.

Today we understand that we damaged our struggle so that "our struggle would not be harmed". While we should have seen our comrade more and asked our comrade more, we were content with the answers we received, we wanted to be contented. We made mistakes and we didn't face our mistakes when we could have been effective. Unless we confronted our mistakes, they did not become invisible, on the contrary, they led to other mistakes. We gave our fight, but it should be clearly stated that we did not give our fight enough and especially on time. We gave our self-criticism, we give it. We accept responsibility. While writing these, we would like to state that despite everything, we believe that we have changed something. But we contradicted our principles! After the disclosures, almost everyone asks what the truth is, it should be said that the truth is

We have implemented new sanctions after the disclosures made and the sanctions we clearly saw in our reassessments, but we are not satisfied with these. At the point we have reached today, we are ending the Revolutionary Anarchist Activity, High School Anarchist Activity, Anarchist Youth and the Revolutionary Anarchist Federation, of which these organizations are founding components.

While this page of organized anarchism in the lands we live in is closing, when we look back, we have been able to do a small part of what we wanted to do until now. And the system still continues to dominate people, nature and all life. The social problems we mentioned above and the conditions that create these problems continue to exist. Women continue to be killed by male violence and workers by occupational murder. LGBTI+s continue to be ignored and murdered with hatred because of their sexual orientation and gender identity. Peoples are slaughtered, their languages are banned. Nature is exploited, it continues to be slaughtered. Authority oppresses people in the family, at school, in the barracks. The oppressed are oppressed even more. In short, everything we struggle with remains in its place.

Those of us who think that the struggle for anarchism must be carried on in an organized way are not afraid of the ruins; We will not stop coming together and fighting together to heal our wounds, to face ourselves and our mistakes, to gain strength from each other, to talk about the world we carry in our hearts, and to fight against the powers that be.
