Commentary by Kemal Okuyan, the First Secretary of the Central Committee of TKP
Joint Statement by NCPN and TKP:
We declare once more that we will stand against imperialist policies of the European Union.
We remind the fact that rising racism can only be stopped with the unity of the proletariat.
We emphasise that we will struggle in an internationalist consciousness against any practice restricting the rights of the working class and migrant workers.
We point to the impossibility of a better capitalism and the necessity to intensify struggle for the only choice, socialism.
AKP is an outcome of the plays of imperialists on our country.
From the Netherlands to Germany, the USA to the UK… AKP cannot be the representative of the people; not just because imperialists who made AKP down on the country’s neck have turned their backs.
Just as that the ones who enmeshed AKP in our country, cannot be our saviour today.
This disgrace should be stopped immediately.
We should immediately get rid of this manipulative public enemy gang in the government which has turned out to be a disaster for our country.
NO to both imperialism and its off-centre and presumptuous puppets!
On the Presidency, the orientation of the capitalism in Turkey and the contradictions within the imperialist world.
The bourgeois politicians of Turkey and Greece are trying to turn the Imia/Kardak Rocks in Aegean see into an international crisis topic once more, like they did 21 years ago.
A decision for search warrant was issued in TKP Isparta provincial branch pretense to defamation against President Erdoğan
In the last two days more than 40 members of the Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) were detained during the campaign for rejecting the presidential system at the referendum which will be held on in Spring 2017. The attitude of the AKP government alleging to be giving the choice on the one hand and on the other, choking the rest alternatives, has no result other than increasing the distrust and delegitimizing the electoral result. But, it cannot change our firm attitude on our campaign for ‘NO’.
On September 10, 1920 in Baku, the Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) was founded.
TKP organised its initial congress, neighbouring a revolution which gave hope to the humanity, just after a bloody war and in a world in which exploiters were fighting to take their share in plunder.
TKP became the party of revolution in Turkey.
Those who die for and those who made a great effort for it in the years following the foundation, took place in this process because they believed that happy and bright days would come only with a socialist revolution.
This belief has never been weakened in 96 years. Today, in the depth of a radical and reactionary capitalism in the country, as well as confronting the dark existence of the 21st century's imperialism, TKP is still the party of revolution and hope for Turkey.
TKP has accepted a decision to proceed its political activities, at a sublime gathering on 22th January 2017 in İstanbul. Thousands of communists from around Turkey accompanied by guests and fraternal party representatives, gathered at the assembly.
