Vatan Budak – 5th anarchist killed by the Suruç bombing (Turkey)

Vatan Budak who was wounded in Suruç bombing passed away.

We lost our comrade, Vatan Budak who was wounded in Suruç (Pirsus) bombing and in intensive care for 16 days. Vatan was the member of United Anarchist Attack.

He is the 5th anarchist comrade killed in Suruç blast.

His funeral took place today in Gaziosmanpaşa, İstanbul.

This neighbourhood is predominantly fascist and his family is one of the few Kurdish families living there. Because of great threat of violence and danger to his family flags and banners were somehow restricted. They were fully displayed only in the cemetery, where speeches were made bidding him last farewell. He was buried under black and red flag.

Different anarchist groups and individuals were present.

Instead of a minute of silence – a whole life in struggle!

One person was reported arrested on their way to the funeral, but we haven’t got more info.
