Abstract: How do digital technologies function for the state in its pacification strategies concerning the dissident political bodies, their subjectivities and communicative capabilities? How does resistance take place against the surveillance practices which come to the fore as a state form, as a means of social control, and as a mechanism of creating manageable and disciplined crowds? Drawing upon the ethnographic data, this article attempts to discuss these questions, by focusing on the contemporary politics surrounding the Kurdish movement in Turkey. In particular, it presents an analysis of the digitized surveillance and resistance of Kurds both of which come to function as crucial components of the contemporary power regimes in Turkey.
