May 1st of 2017 should be celebrated with massive participation of our people who do not submit. Our working class, our hope for the future, should prove its strength. For that, we call all the working men and women, all the educated and youth to march with TKP. TKP will take place with its own rally ranks at the meetings to be held in İstanbul, Ankara, İzmir and Adana. We announce our participation to those meetings to be held by the initiative of DİSK, KESK, TMMOB and TTB.
Everybody should know this well: TKP will carry on its rightful struggle to empower the will of the people. This struggle is against the Soros-sponsored interventions and the fundamentalist public enemies. As of tomorrow, we are calling to establish and organise the ‘Committees against Presidency’ everywhere, at all workplaces, neighbourhoods, and schools.
Interview with Kemal Okuyan, First Secretary of the CC of TKP, on the results of the referendum. [ES]
The referandum results, which are designated with tyranny, cheating and stealing, do not have any legitimacy. Those who attempt to celebrate this result mock the people.
We call our people, who do not submit, to unite, to act organized and not to accept 'fait accomplis'. [ES]

Communist Party of Venezuela
Recently we have been facing a new wave of international aggression targeting the sovereignty of Venezuela and aiming at absolute dissolution of the Bolivarian Revolution.
The US imperialism under Trump administration has accelerated its provocations against Venezuela with direct sanctions as well as through puppet organizations such as the Organization of American States (OAS). And the reactionary opposition in Venezuela aim to open the path for imperialist intervention by fuelling the tension in the country.
The Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) denounces any attempt of interference in internal affairs of Venezuela and announces its unconditional solidarity with the working people of Venezuela against the hostilities of imperialism and the reactionary opposition.
The enemies of the Syrian people continue to attack this country which they have been tormenting using jihadist gangs and international terrorist networks. The partnership of imperialist media and pro-sharia agents fabricated a chemical weapon scenario in Idlib and so made up a pretext for the missile attack by the United States.
We warn Erdoğan: We are going to bring you to book for the jihad that you intend to wage with US missiles. No! Do not you dare to add new ones to the crimes that you have already committed and to involve this country in your own devastation.
The Governorship of İstanbul has disallowed the rally of the Communist Party of Turkey that is scheduled to be held on April 8 in İstanbul. We will pursue this incident in terms of laws. We will politically prove once again that they will not be able to silence the voice of the working people. TKP has calls the people to come together on April 8 across the country to raise the voice of ‘no’ with the Party’s weekly journal, ‘Boyun Eğme’ (‘Do Not Surrender’) with the attendance of thousands of people, trade unionists, intellectuals, artists and academicians.
There will be a mass meeting at 4.00pm on April 8, Saturday. Our call is to meet and raise the voice of “No”at Kartal Square, at a time when they try to suppress with bans, despotism, and threats, yet the campaign for No continues to proliferate in, all over the country.
People of Izmir, coming together in the ‘Not Enough, but No!’ meeting organised by İzmir branch of the TKP, discussed that just saying “no” would not be enough but that the “no” option would require a determination of struggle and organisation.
The Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) made a public statement upon the government's ban on the rally that is scheduled to be held on April 2 with the slogan, 'İstanbul says no'. TKP calls the people to come together at a meeting on April 9.
