In this issue, Süreyya Evren’s editorial examines the causes and consequences of the Gezi resitance in Istanbul in June 2013. Identifying the two-week occupation of Taksim Square and Gezi Park as the formulation of an temporary autonomous zone (TAZ), Evren discusses the police violence, state conservatism and threats to public space that led to this anarchist moment. Federico Campagna offers a poetic anarchist reading of the works of poet Fernando Pessoa. Pessoa lived through heteronyms, and Campagna explores how these different personalities offered Pessoa the potential to finally achieve ‘free will’. Roy Krøvel’s article takes a theoretical approach in analysing how left libertarians and anarchists might develop a deeper understanding of global warming. Emphasising the urgency of locating such an understanding, Krøvel argues that we need to fundamentally rethink our relationship to nature.

Also in this issue, John Asimakopoulos identifies the failure to bridge the gap between utopian economic models of society and reality. Via the suggestions that corporations have boards of directors filled by lottery from the demos and the workers for the company, Asimakopoulos suggests that institutions of production need to be modified in order to achieve a society that resembles a distant utopia. Duane Rousselle and Saul Newman debate postanarchism, exploring the ethics of the movement and the fact that it is not located in a specific temporal period.
