Hello,
 
I am Cansel Malatyalı. I am a wor
ker, married and mother of two children. Four and a half  years ago I started working in the Central Office of the Chamber of Civil Engineers (CCE). I was working as a janitor and I was serving tea for the CCE staff as well. I always arrived atthe workplace even before the working hours started and I have been working devotedly.But despite that, on January 31
st
, 2012 I was given a piece of paper which states that I was
fired by the decision of the Board of Chamber because of my “poor performance”.
 
I didn’t keep silent in the face of the injustice. Thanks to the support given by my labour
union, my family and my friends, I am in a sit-in since February 20
th
2012 until today. Inthe first two months I carried out the sit-in from the morning until the evening. Now aftertwo months, I am sitting in round the clock. My demand is to continue working.
 
Until today, my resistance has been the subject of tens of newspapers, journals and websites news and columns. I have participated to newscasts in 4 different TV channels. Many representatives of the unions, associations and democratic mass organizations visited my resistance tent. I have collected almost 1500 signatures for my demand to return to my 
.My labour union and the circles that have been supporting me made several pressdeclarations in front of CCE.
 
 Although thousands of people heard my voice, the managers of CCE turned a deaf ear to my  words and attempted to blacken my sit-in to crush my resistance. First they issued astatement, in which they claimed that I had rejected their work proposals and that my 
purpose had been to “sling mud to the chamber”. I was
told to abandon the resistance before the General Assembly of CCE Ankara Branch is held and they said that only then Icould be employed again. When the representatives of my labour union proposed to signan 
 contract, CCE rejected this. Afterwards, my labour union, TezKoop-
İş,
issued a press statement that refuted the statements of CCE.
 
 
 
 What I have experienced in the previous week shows the extent of intolerance towards my resistance. The director of the central office, Züber Akgöl had his car driven upon me andupon the supporters of my resistance. In this incident my brother was almost crashed by the car and we were attacked by the guards and some employees. After this incident which
 was also shown in the TV newscasts, the police forces, who didn’t intervene in my 
resistance, started to attack against it. I was forcibly taken under custody three times, my tent was confiscated and I was fined because of polluting the environment(!). I erected my tent again after every attack and carried on my resistance without interruption.
 
It is clear that such kinds
of events are harming the CCE, although I don’t have such a
purpose to do so. Is it acceptable for an organization like CCE, which claims to have a pro- worker perspective, to mob its employees, to arbitrarily fire them, to drive its cars on its workers who claim their rights, to allow the policemen to intervene against the resisting workers?
 
 You should stand by with your chamber and a worker who works for it. This shamefully anti-worker practice should be stopped at once. These are my demands. And I will continuethis resistance, which I am willingly and devotedly carrying out since February 20
th
2012,until I take my job back.
