Wind That Blows From The Workers: Tekel Struggle
By iscinet (40 min.) (2010) - Turkey
In November 2003, Turkish State’s ruling party AKP sold the TEKEL alcohol and spirits plants to a national consortium (MEY) for $292 million. Despite the fraud and corruption behind TEKEL’s privatization, the new owners were further granted bank credits with no down payment for a period of two years. The “new owners” in turn had re-sold the alcohol and spirits component of TEKEL to Texas Pacific Group in 2 years time for a total of $900 million! On December 15, 2009, the workers’ of TEKEL had taken the streets of the main district of Ankara as the center of resistance.
