"I am the founder of NetwOrg. I currently manage and coordinate several online projects like Social Network Unionism project, Networked Labour website and email list, and Global Networked Labour Union (GNUnion). I continiously think, act, research, write, invent, present, and share in diverse fields among others distributed and networked politics, transnational and informational political economy of labour and social movements, collaborative online collective organizing and action and campaigning. Some of my writings and presentations are available online, here and here.

Previously, I worked with Turkey and the Netherlands based trade unions, NGO and advocacy groups like DISK, Oleyis, Tudef, FNV Bondgenoten, Transnational Institute, TIE-Netherlands. At the international level, I played an active interlocking role in Reclaiming Public Water Network, People’s Water Forum, Labour and Globalisation Network, Joint Social Conference and Alter Summit processes. I am afilated to New Unionism Network and on a daily basis I do manage tens of online social media accounts, online communities that are engaged in communication and networking activity; most of them are in relation to labour and social justice activism, and union organising.

I have been intensifely active on many online and real world / transnational workgroups, since the early 2011. Some of which are/ were linked to 15M, Decmoracia Real Ya, TaketheSquare, OccupyWallStreet and #OccupyGezi movements. I contributed to the preperation of #15O Global Change, #11.11.11 Occupy the World, # Global Spring, #Global Noise, #MMM – Million Mask March international mobilisations and am currently engaged in the preparation of another worldwide mobilisation (tagged as #WaveOfAction)."
