Communist Party of Turkey has completed its 2018 Conference
We are very grateful to all our fraternal parties for their messages of solidarity and support, that were shared with the Conference delegates.
AKEL Merkez Komitesi Türkiye Komünist Partisi’ne yoldaşça selamlarını ve sizin aracılığınızla ülkeniz işçi sınıfına ve emekçi halkına barış ve dostluk selamlarını göndermektedir. Bu vesileyle, Türkiye’nin komünistlerine ve Erdoğan hükümetinin ve Türkiye’deki hâkim sınıfların baskı ve zulmüne uğrayan her ilerici güce yönelik dayanışmamızı ifade ediyoruz.
Konferansınızın Türkiye işçi sınıfının direnişini ve örgütünün güçlenmesine katkıda bulanacağından eminiz. Bizim anlayışımıza göre ve tecrübemizin de gösterdiği gibi, halkla en sağlam ve en derin bağlar kadrolarımızın ve üyelerimizin günlük yaşam içerisinde, emek dünyasının –büyük ya da küçük- sorunları ve talepleri için mücadelelerde, yani emekçilerin ve halkın, hatta bizimle siyasi ve partisel olarak özdeşleşmeyen ya da her konuda hemfikir olmayan emekçilerin de güvenini komünistlerin kazanabilecekleri ve kazanmaları gereken mücadelelerde yoğrulmasıyla başarılır.
Nitekim ülkeniz işçi sınıfının devlet şiddetinin ve baskısının kurbanı kılındığı ve aynı zamanda Türkiye’nin hâkim sınıflarının tehlikeli planlarının ve ekonomik krizin bedelini de ödediği bilinmektedir. Erdoğan hükümetinin söylemlerinin ve maceracılıklarının, uluslararası alanda emperyalistler arası rekabetlere derin angajmanının ardında gizlenen gerçek sınıfsal çıkarları Türkiye halkına deşifre etme yönünde Türkiye Komünist Partisi’nin ortaya koyduğu çaba her açıdan kayda değerdir.
Bu vesileyle, Türkiye’nin adamızdaki işgalinin sonlandırılması, Kıbrıslırumların ve Kıbrıslıtürklerin, halkımızın ve yurdumuzun kurtuluşu ve yeniden birleşmesi için halkımızın verdiği mücadelede partinizin ortaya koyduğu tutarlı enternasyonalist tutuma yönelik takdirimizi bir kez daha ifade etmek istiyoruz.
Kıbrıs sorununun içinden geçtiği bu kritik dönemde TKP’nin antiemperyalist ve barış yanlısı sesinin Türkiye’de giderek daha da güçlü bir biçimde duyulması önemlidir. Kıbrıs, Türkiye ve tüm bölgemizin halklarını birbirinden ayıran hiçbir şeyin olmadığını bir kez daha tekrarlıyoruz. Ortak düşmanımız haksızlığı, sömürüyü ve sermayenin saldırganlığını yeniden üreten sistem ve emperyalizm, militarizm, milliyetçilik olmaya devam ediyor.
Bu düşüncelerle konferansınızın çalışmalarında ve işçi hakları, demokratik özgürlükler, barış ve sosyalizm için mücadelelerinizde başarılar dileriz.

MESSAGE OF SOLIDARITY AND GREETINGS TO THE 2018 CONGRESS OF THE TKP-COMMUNIST PARTY OF TURKEY
The Communist Party of Britain sends its solidarity greetings to the 2018 Congress of the TKP-Communist Party of Turkey.
Our party deeply appreciates the struggle of the TKP to keep the perspectives of socialist emancipation before the working class movement in Turkey in face of savage repression.
We also warmly appreciate the importance of developing immediate struggles to defend workers’ living standards and trade union rights.
The current inter-imperialist struggles for the control of the resources and territories of the Middle East and the renewed onslaught on the rights of the Palestinian people give ever great importance to the struggles of Communists in Turkey.
Dear Comrades, please receive the best wishes of the Communist Party of Britain for the success of your Congress.

Partido Comunista de Cuba
En nombre del Partido Comunista de Cuba trasladamos nuestros sincero saludos y deseo de éxitos en esta Conferencia. Lo hacemos con el convencimiento del triunfo de sus propósitos, al estar guiados por las ideas del marxismo-leninismo, las que permiten un análisis científico y objetivo de los retos que enfrenta la clase trabajadora en oposición al capitalismo neoliberal.
Nuestro Partido considera que hoy más que nunca, es necesaria la unidad y claridad ídeológica para liberar a nuestros pueblos de las estrategias del imperialisma mundial.
Cuba vive una nueva etapa, en la que los rebeldes, que una vez, conquistaron la justicia para todo nuestro pueblo no estarán al frente de los destinos de nuestro país. Es propicia la ocasión para esclarecer, el compromisa de las actuales generaciones con las ideas de independencia y de justicia social de Martí y de Fidel. Citasom en relación con ello a Raúl Castro, Primer Secretario del Partido de Comunista de Cuba, cuando expresó “... ratifico una vez más que no pretendemos modificar el carácter irrevocable del Socialismo en nuestro sistema político y social, ni el papel dirigente del Partido Comunista de Cuba, como vanguardia organizada y fuerza dirigente superior de la sociedad y el Estado”. Esta sentencia permanece de manera nítida reflejada, en la nueva Contitución que debatimos los cubanos en este preciso momento.
El objetivo estratégico de doblegar a la Revolución Cubana no ha cesado en estos casi 60 años. Por el contrario, las acciones contra la Isla se han recrudecido desde la llegada al poder de Donald Trump.
Vivimos bajo un orden internacional injusto y excluyente, en el que Estados Unidos trata de preservar a toda costa su dominio absoluto. Con ese fin provoca nuevas guerras, acentúa el peligro de una conflagración nuclear, exacerba el uso de la fuerza, las amenazas y la aplicación indiscriminada de sanciones unilaterales contra aquellos que no se doblegan a sus designios; impone la carrera armamentista, la mititarización del espacio ultraterrestre y del ciberespacio y plantea crecientes amenazas a la paz y la seguridad internacionales.
Ratificamos a nuestros amigos, comunistas turcos, que nos mantendremos junto a ustedes en sus luchas y desvelos.
Confirmamos el interés de nuestro Partido de continuar fomentando los históricos vínculos de identidad, solidaridad y cooperación, basándonos en el ejemplo del líder histórico de la Revolución Cubana, su irrenunciable optimismo y fe en la victoria.
Con saludos fraternales,

Class struggle is international from its character. CP-Turkey party congress in lzmir 15.-16.th of September 2018, surely gives us communist in Finland new visions, hope and energy-all very necessary elements for
our political every day work.

The Communist Party of Finland wishes success to the CP-Turkey Conference that will serve specifically on organizational issues and to make stronger the political goals of the Party in the light of Marxism-Leninism. The specific reference of the CP-Turkey Congress theme implies the need to foster the organized response and resistance of Turkey’s working class during the current economic and political crisis
The Communist Party of Finland is sure that the CP of Turkey will have a profound, ideological and organizationally successful party congress. The SKP jointly with the international communist and workers parties’ collective wishes to strengthen international class struggle against imperialist wars, austerity and neoliberal politics and also learn and take part in future CP-Turkey congress decisions on political actions.
Marxism demands us to organize new concrete grass root political work for a better future, peoples’ sovereignty and participatory democracy. We find ourselves in an urgent situation to make a world without guns, passing towards socialism aiming for communism and for a world without wars and armies.

Communist Party of Greece
The KKE addresses warm comradely gretings to the Conference organized by the Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) in Smyrna under the motto “to the workers” and believes that such an initiative will arm you with strength and experience, it will lend impetus to the party’s work in the working class, to the development of its bonds with the workers.
The gretings of KKE is n ot just a formal within the high-level framework of the comradely, fraternal relations conquered by our parties, it is substantial and takes into account the difficult conditions under which the communists in Turkey struggle for the interests of the working class and the Turkish people.
It takes into account the conflict against capitalist exploitation, the anti-people political line of Erdogan’s presidency and government, the attack of capital, the state and employers’ terrorism within the workplacess, the repression and the restrictions on the activity of the TKP.
Most of all it takes into account and salutes the big efforts you make for the reinforcement of the orientation of your work to the working class aand we express our stable will to support t hese efforts, to contribute to the exchange of experience betwen the two parties, for the continuation of the essential, comradely discussion with TKP on tthe experience of KKE and the class-oriented trade-union movement in Grece.
About the efforts for party building in the factories, the companies, the sectors, particularly in places of strategic importance.
The work of the communists in the trade unions and the change of the correlation of forces, the experience of work for the development of the “All-workerrs’ militant front” (PAME), the class-oriented rally with the participation of hundreds of trade unions struggling in a classs-oriented direction.
The battle against the bourgeois forces and the employers’, the governments’ and the bourgeois state mechanisms, the employer and government-led trade
unionism, the corrosive work of opportunism.
The KKE continues decisively its struggles against the exploiting system, t capital and its political representatives. It is in an intense conflict with the social democratic government off SYRIZA-ANEL that tries to make use of the formal end of the financial program with the EU and the IMF and it projects with audacity the continuation of the anti-people political line, the maintaining of hundreds of memorandum laws attacking the workers’ class and the popular strata as a “New Era”, cultivating the disorientating position about “fair” capitalist development and projecting some crumbs to impede the workers’, peoples’ struggle.
The struggle against the anti-people political line is waged in a direction of demanding the recovery of the workers’ losses during the crisis and the satisfaction of the contemporary neds, in order for the anti-capitalist- antimonopoly struggle to be reinforced and for the concentration of forces for the overthrow of the capitalist exploitation, for the new, socialist society.
We wish you success in your conference and in the struggle of the Communist Party of Turkey in general for the interests of the working class and the Turkish people, for our common cause, the struggle for the overthrow of capitalism, for socialism.
With warm, comradely gretings,
For the International Relations’ Section of the CC of the KKE

Communist Party of India (Marxist)
The Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) extends its revolutionary greetings to the Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) on the occasion of its Conference on Organisation.
Your Conference is being held at a very important time, where the ruling classes are trying their best to come out of the systemic crisis of capitalism, by imposing ever more burdens on the toiling sections of the society. Popular resentment and discontent against these policies are on the rise. People are coming out in struggle in many countries. In our country, the recently held mammoth worker-peasant rally is an example.
The ruling classes are trying to suppress the working class struggles with force and authoritarian measures. They are promoting divisive politics in the name of race, ethnicity, religion and region, etc, to break the unity of the working class and other toiling sections of the society. It is the bounden duty of us, communists, to safeguard this unity and resist the ruling class policies with all our might. For this, an organisationally strong communist party is vital.
In this context, we would like to bring to your notice that our Party also had a Plenum on Organisation in 2015 to strengthen our Party and expand its base with the target of building a revolutionary party with a mass line.
We are confident that the deliberations and conclusions of your conference on organisation will lead to further strengthening of the TKP. We wish you all the best and take this opportunity to reiterate our solidarity with you, in your struggles for ushering a society free of exploitation.

Communist Party of Norway
CP of Norway is greeting your 2018 Conference “TO THE WORKERS” in Izmir 15th-16th of September. The working class of Turkey is dependent on their vanguard marxist-leninist communist TKP to foster the organized response and resistance of the working class during the currant economical and political crisis.
You have to fight the US imperialism combined with the actual fight against monopoly capitalist theft, unemployment, high cost of living, underlining the labor culture, resistance and solidarity.
Your party initiative is crucial, if not liberalism and nationalism will drag Turkey into ruin.
There is no safe heaven under monopoly capitalism. Socialism is the only way out if you are looking for peace, equality and freedom.
CP of Norway wish you success in the work and decisions of your important 2018 Conference “TO THE WORKERS”!

Communist Party of Pakistan
Communist Party of Pakistan heartily congratulate and extends deep fraternal comradely wishes for the very successful deliberations and conclusions of your party 98th congress.
Its indeed very alarming that Turkey is quite fast evolving on the path of Pakistan. The consistent hard struggle of the working people and CP of Turkey finally triumphed in eliminating the military controlled democratic dictatorship but the decades long wider space created intentionally for the religious fascists forces paved the way for the reincarnation of imperialist capitalist stooge satrap Erdogan to power. In the background of lost year orchestrated failed coup-de etat, the AKP government is using overwhelmingly religious sentiments to advance a barrage of manipulations to succeed in imposing totalitarian rule in the country, which we are sure that the Turkish proletariat and TKP will never let it happen.
Dear Comrades for 60 years Pakistan has been instrumental against Soviet Union and its allies, safeguarding the interests of the western and American capitalism imperialism where religion was used is the prime most effective tool. For this very purpose a vast infrastructure of religious sectarian and jihadism was laid down through out each corner of Pakistan. Before these factories had to start its own yield of jihadi terrorism, gangs of murderers, terrorists were recruited from all over the world to topple the legitimate proletarian government in Afghanistan. This civil war is sustained alive even till date in order to not allow class struggle to take root in. The gradual transformation drive of the Turkish government to imitate Pakistan is in indeed very shocking and profoundly distasteful for us.
As international capitalist system is quick in taking over the world’s resources, commodities prices are increasing, jobs are diminishing, working hours are expanding and wages are shrinking along with the curtailing of the education, health and social securities. At this point to muzzle the organized resistance by the people against capitalist barbarism, racism, sectarianism, religious fanaticism and regressive obscurant ideals are promoted and promulgated among the masses in order to compromise the class identity of the society at large. Consequently working class and general public is more inclined towards fait matters than economic and social disparity issues.In these circumstances communists should take up the economic issues and class contradictions in society with vigorous courage and bravery.
We highly appraise the hard struggle of the TKP and hope that this 98th congress of your party will enable you in devising better strategies for further strengthening the rank and files as a vanguard of the working class of Turkey.
Long live Socialism
Long live Marxism Leninism
Long live TKP and CPP fraternity.
Communist Party of Peoples of Spain
Dear comrades of TKP:
On the occasion of the Conference organized by your Party, from PCPE we send you a fraternal greeting and our full support.
The motto of your Conference, “To the Workers”, reflects one of the fundamental tasks of the communists: to be able to organize and lead the working class in the revolutionary struggle against capitalism, not merely to call ourselves a vanguard organization, but to lead each member and cell of the Party to intervene among the working class, multiply the ties of the Party with it, create structures in which the working class is an independent subject and which are useful for the communist struggle.
These debates are not unique of TKP: our Party has also had them in recent years. Finding a useful tactic to intervene intelligently in the working class movement is one of the keys to the success of Marxist-Leninist organizations.
We will follow your debates closely. We take this opportunity to send greetings to the delegates gathered in your Conference. The struggle of the working class of Turkey is vital, especially under its current capitalist crisis and the country being one of the regional powers involved in inter-imperialist conflicts in the Middle East. In that struggle, the main tool of the Turkish working class is TKP.
Long live turkish working class!
Long live TKP!
International Department of PCPE
Communist Party of Peoples of Spain
On behalf of the Central Committee of the PCPE and its Secretary General, Carmelo Suárez, receive the communist greetings for the celebration of the DKP Conference in the current year 2018, which will be held between 15th and 16th September in the province from Izmir.
We celebrate that, given the hard situation of the class struggle both in Turkey and internationally, the TKP analyzes the position of the party in the organizational area to successfully face the battle against the Turkish government and imperialism.
The PCPE salutes that the Conference carries the slogan “To the workers”, since the working class must be the true beneficiary of the vanguard organization that develops its policy under the experiences and knowledge that Marxism-Leninism holds for it.
Wishing you the successes pursued, receive a communist greeting.
To August 28th of 2018
Víctor Manuel Lucas Ranz
International Secretary of PCPE
Communist Party of Poland
Communist Party of Poland conveys its warmest comradely greetings to the Conference of the Communist Party of Turkey.
TKP is a party with great traditions in struggle conducted in difficult conditions of military and right wing dictatorship. We salute the great history of struggles, fighting both in legal and clandestine ways to protect the working class and overthrow capitalist barbarity.
The Communist Party of Poland is conscious of the great sacrifice of those Turkish communists that gave their lives or spent years in prisons defending their principles.
Against all odds TKP survived working for the benefit of the working class and pursuing its Marxist-Leninist program.
We highly value international cooperation with our Turkish Comrades and hope that the international cooperation between our parties will continue to develop.

Ваша Конференция проходит в непростое время, когда международная обстановка в мире продолжает осложняться, тяжелейший экономический кризис охватывает все страны мира, угроза новой глобальной войны становится объективной реальностью.
Неолиберальные правительства, проводящие политику жесткой экономии, перекладывают последствия экономического кризиса на плечи трудового народа, продолжают активное наступление на его права.
В этой сложной обстановке вам предстоит не только подвести итоги деятельности за прошедшие годы, но и принять те решения, которые помогут создать наиболее функциональную структуру, соответствующую политическим целям вашей партии, усилят ее позиции, сплотят трудящиеся массы под знаменем марксизма - ленинизма.

Делегатам съезда коммунистов Турции.
Центральный комитет Коммунистической партии Советского Союза приветствует делегатов конференции Компартии Турции и заявляет о своей неизменной солидарности с борьбой турецких коммунистов за социальные и политические интересы рабочего класса, за равенство граждан разных национальностей, против империалистической войны.
Сегодня, когда на границе Турции идёт война мировой финансовой олигархии, устремившейся к безраздельному мировому господству, против сирийского народа и его суверенного государства за захват местных природных богатств и выгодных стратегических позиций, когда в эту несправедливую войну уже втянуты вооружённые силы Турции, правительство которой лавирует между обязательствами перед агрессивным блоком НАТО и собственными интересами, далёкими от интересов трудящихся масс, особо важен голос рабочего класса Турции и его авангарда - коммунистической партии.
Поэтому желаем успеха конференции в выработке мер по организационному укреплению партии, по её прочной опоре на рабочий класс, единственно способный помочь себе и своим трудовым союзникам избавить страну от засилья капиталистических монополий, от вмешательства США во внутренние дела государства, от членства в НАТО, прекратить оккупацию турецкими войсками территорий Сирии и Кипра, поставить страну на рельсы социализма и обеспечить тем самым материальное и духовное благосостояние всех в условиях мира и социальной справедливости, дружбу народов, населяющих Турцию, добрососедство с сирийским и другими народами.
Желаем успеха конференции и в последующей борьбе. .

Communist Party of Ukraine
The Central Committee of the Communist Party, all the Communists of Ukraine and myself, warmly and cordially welcome you, delegates and guests of the Congress of the Communist Party of Turkey and wish your party forum fruitful work!
Your Congress is going through a period of aggravation of the class struggle of working people all over the world in connection with the economic crisis of capitalism and under the specific conditions of the political regime that dominates the country, which represents the interests of Turkish capital, seeking new markets and sources of raw materials.
We, the Communists of Ukraine, acting under the conditions of a national - oligarchic, neo - fascist dictatorship, understand that special anti - communist situation in your country where opposition and dissidents are being persecuted. We express our comradely solidarity and support to the Communist Party of Turkey, to all Communists and members of their families who are subject to political repressions by the Turkish authorities.
The Communists of Ukraine also unconditionally support your heroic struggle against Turkey’s membership in the European Union, against international terrorism led by the gendarme of world imperialism - the US, for Turkey’s withdrawal from NATO, considering the alliance as a militaristic instrument in the hands of imperialism, for peace in the Middle East, for a decent life and the proper political and socio-economic rights of the Turkish working people. The Communist Party of Ukraine fully supports your party’s conclusion that despite the diplomatic maneuvering of the Erdogan regime, Turkish capital, with the aim of forming an image of an independent, patriotic power, is nothing more progressive or more patriotic than foreign capital - for profit, it goes exactly to any crimes against workers. That it is impossible to tame capitalism, to create a more just, patriotic and peaceful bourgeois system. That while exploitation remains, the working class, all working people will continue to suffer.
We sincerely wish you, delegates of the Congress, agreement, mutual understanding, determination and firmness in adopting actual decisions at your party forum that will become a firm basis for the further organization of the class struggle against international imperialism, exploitation of man by man, against globalization and terrorism, the revival of fascism, for strengthening the unity and cohesion of the international communist and workers’ movement, for preserving peace on the planet, for the restoration of genuine democracy and socialism!
We wish you health, optimism, new achievements for the benefit of the working people of Turkey!
Proletarians of all countries unite! With communist greetings,
First Secretary of the Communist Party of Ukraine
Communist Party Usa
It is with pleasure that we send our greetings to your illustrious party on the occasion of your 18th Congress, to be held in Izmir on September 15-16.
We are well aware of the many fronted crisis that the Turkish working class is facing, from your own country’s reactionary government, from the war situation on Turkey’s southern border, and from the recent sharp economic downturn. We are also conscious of the role our own government, headed by the ultra-reactionary president Donald Trump, is playing in destabilizing and subverting the struggles of peoples throughout your region. Finally, we have followed with concern the news of repressive threats toward your party itself.
We are encouraged to see that your party is not intimidated by these developments, and that you keep on fighting for the rights and interests of the Turkish working class and people, for peace and for socialism.
John Bachtell, National Chair, Communist Party USA
Communists of Serbia.
Party „Communists of Serbia“ gives full support to work of your Conference.
It is clear to us that the burden of the crisis brought by wild liberal capitalism is borne by the working class and the endangered layers of the population. In this sense, your party must be a working class avant-garde in the struggle to crush capitalism as an inhuman social system. Capitalism can not be repaired and we have to speak honestly that the people will get worse, because, as the Marks says system has to be fundamentally destroy. We are confident that after this conference, TKP will remain on the solid line of Marxism-Leninism and represent the hope for all progressive citizens of Turkey.
German Communist Party
Dear comrade Secretary General Kemal Okuyan,
dear comrades all,
the German Communist Party wishes you a successful conference to be held in Izmir.
As you explain, the conference will be treating organizational politics. As Turkey is in a complex situation of crisis in internal and external affairs, your conference has a bigger responsibility than in calmer times. We are aware of the necessity to give tools to the working class of your country so that class struggles can be made with better chances for success.
Let us express the wish and the confidence that the delegates will find the best organizational measures for the Communist Party of Turkey, according to the phase of class struggle which Turkey is facing.
With best comradely greetings

Iraqi Communist Party
We convey the warmest greetings of the Iraqi Communist Party to the 2018 Conference of your fraternal party, the Communist Party of Turkey. We also seize this opportunity to greet all your comrades and party supporters on the 98th anniversary of TKP’s foundation.
This event acquires special significance for your party and the progressive forces in Turkey, as it comes amid a deepening political and economic crisis in the country and continuing repression by the AKP government. Enhancing the party organization, through a concrete evaluation of its experience, is crucial for achieving its political objectives in the interest of the working class and popular masses of Turkey. It is indispensable in the ongoing mass and class struggles against the reactionary policies of the regime that serve the interests of monopolies and the schemes of US imperialism and its allies in the region.
While wishing your Conference every success and reaffirming our solidarity with you in your difficult struggle, we look forward to strengthening and developing the internationalist ties between our party and the Communist Party of Turkey, in the joint struggle for freedom, peace, democracy, social progress, and socialism.
With our best comradely wishes for a successful Conference
Long live Internationalist Solidarity!

New Communist Party of Netherlands
Dear comrades, dear comrade Kemal Okuyan,
The CC of the New Communist Party of the Netherlands wishes our Turkish comrades strength, political, strategical and tactical wisdom for the struggle against Turkish bourgeoisie and their temporarily chief ‘Sultan Erdogan’. We understand that the actual economical situation has big consequences for the working class in Turkey. We really hope that many friends, sympathizers and progressive people in Turkey will escape from illusions and will take part in the common struggle of the TKP. Only an organized united front under the leadership of the communist (marxist-leninist) party will be able to fight our common enemies.
We wish you a very fruitful and successful conference.
The struggle will be hard, but we will win.

FOR STRONG COMMUNIST PARTY OF TURKEY - FOR SOCIALIST REPUBLIC TURKEY
On behalf of the Central Committee of the New Communist Party of the Yugoslavia (NKPJ) we warmly welcome you, the delegates of the 2018 Conference of the Communist Party of Turkey (TKP).
The crisis of capitalism is not over. It is very important to reveal and reject the misleading views spread by capital, the bourgeois and opportunist political forces regarding the “regulation”, “rationalisation” and “humanisation” of capitalism. Bourgeois economists cannot find any cure that would encourage real and sustainable growth, there is no new model and functional method, and it cannot be found because the system has not changed, capitalism cannot be repaired.
Today the developments highlight the danger of a generalized imperialist war, confirming that capitalism, which is in its monopoly-imperialist stage, is becoming continuously more threatening and dangerous for the peoples.
It is particularly important to promote the communist perspective and repel the current anti-communist wave.
The acceleration of the process for the regroupment of the labour movement, the social alliance with the self-employed and the small and medium sized peasants remains a crucial issue; likewise the effectiveness of the ideological struggle in order to weaken bourgeois concepts and strike a blow at the opportunist and reformist forces.
As Nazim Hikmet wrote “We have a centuries-old impetus… We will emerge victorious even if our sacrifices are great.” This rotten world “this pirate ship, will sink - come hell or high water, it will sink. And we will build a world as hopeful, free”
The NKPJ highly values the relations of friendship and solidarity between our parties. We are confident that your decisions will contribute to strengthening the party ranks and raising the party prestige in the society.
In recent years, under close care of both sides and joint efforts of the two peoples, the NKPJ and TKP friendly and cooperative relations have continuously been strengthened and developed. The NKPJ highly cherishes the traditional NKPJ-TKP friendship, and makes it an unswerving policy to continuously strengthen and develop bilateral friendly and cooperative ties. We are willing to make joint efforts with the TKP side to continuously promote NKPJ-TKP friendly cooperative relations to a new and higher level.
We believe your party’s Conference can be an important step towards mutual cooperation of progressive people to be strengthened, to reach fairer social order.
We wish every success to your congress debates, and we also wish to your party its influence in the society to improve. We appreciate our mutual cooperation, to be ready for its further development.
We wish your Conference successful work and the implementation of the outlined plans.
With best fraternal and communist regards,

Dear Comrades in the central committee of the Communist Party of Turkey

We would like also to thank you for your position of firm solidarity with the just cause of Palestinian people for its right to end the Israeli occupation and to establish an independent state in the territories of June 4th 1967 with east Jerusalem as its capital and the right of the refugees to return home according to the UN resolutions .
Once again we hope your conference every success.

Party of Labour of Austria
The Central Committee of the Party of Labour of Austria sends fraternal greetings and congratulations to the delegates of the Party Conference and all the members of the Communist Party of Turkey.
The theme of you Conference “TO THE WORKERS!” is very important as it reflects the necessity to strengthen the ties of the Communist Party with the working class in every country. This is the only way to create a strong class-oriented workers’ and union movement that is in the position to resist the capitalist and imperialist offensive. The recent developments in Turkey confirm the analysis of the TKP concerning the political and economic situation. We are confident that the TKP will stand up to the new responsibilities and duties as it is based on the revolutionary theory of Marxism-Leninism.
The PdA is also confronted with new challenges posed by the sharpened anti-workers and anti-peoples policies of capital under the ÖVP-FPÖ government and the devastating influence and dominance of social-democracy on the trade unions. We struggle for the creation of a strong class-oriented workers movement in Austria that will pass from defense over to the offensive. Together with the Communist Youth of Austria (KJÖ), we recently organized rallies in major cities in Austria concerning the need to organize the struggle against the 12-hour day and the 60-hour week. In the occasion of the Austrian presidency of the Council of the EU, we strengthen our struggle against the participation of our country in imperialist alliances and their military structures.
We wish your Party Conference great success, and we look forward to further strengthening the fraternal relations between our parties in the period ahead.
Long live the Communist Party of Turkey!
Long live Marxism-Leninism!
Long live proletarian internationalism!

Parti Algérien pour la démocratie et le Socialisme
Chers camarades du Parti communiste de Turquie
Les communistes algériens vous adressent leurs voeux internationalistes les plus chaleureux à l’occasion de la célébration du 98ème anniversaire de la fondation de votre parti.
Notre parti, le PADS, exprime son soutien à votre lutte pour le socialisme, pour l’avènement d’un pouvoir de la classe ouvrière alliées aux autres couches sociales laborieuses écrasées par la domination du capitalisme, pour la socialisation de la propreté des moyens de production, pour la planification centralisée.
En Algérie aussi la classe ouvrière n’a pas d’avenir radieux avec le capitalisme, un capitalisme dépendant de la division internationale du travail, qui ne peut être aboli que par le socialisme. Et c’est le socialisme qui développera les forces productives et les mettra au service de la satisfaction des besoins sociaux croissants des travailleurs. Les communistes algériens s’enrichissent en étudiant l’expérience des partis communistes frères marxistes-léninistes et apportent à leur tour les enseignements de leur expérience propre à celle de tout le mouvement. La renaissance d’un vrai mouvement communiste internationale passe par la lutte idéologique sans merci contre le réformisme social-démocrate, contre l’héritage vénéneux et paralysant du révisionnisme, contre les conceptions opportunistes qui s’appuient sur de nombreux prétextes pour ajourner indéfiniment l’heure d’une nouvelle révolution socialiste. L’époque actuelle est celle du combat décisif pour abattre le capitalisme. Renforçons nos liens !
Communist Party (Italy)
On behalf of the Central Committee of the Communist Party (Italy), I warmly greet the participants in the Conference, organized by the Communist Party of Turkey under the theme “To the Workers”.
Workers actually play a central role in society. The material wealth they produce allows society to live and develop, but their position in the frame of capitalism does not correspond to the fundamental importance of their function. In capitalism, while the product of their work sustains the whole society, workers are the subordinate and exploited class.
Today, the objective conflict between capital and labor arises even sharper than before. The fierce competition among monopolies and imperialistic countries pushes capitalists to seek for a larger competitiveness by reducing wages and pensions, cutting basic social services, extending the retirement age, intensifying the pace of work in order to increase productivity and try to resist the tendency of the rate of profit to fall. In other words, exploitation and inequality are increasing.
As Karl Marx, whose 200th anniversary we are celebrating this year, taught us, strengthening the workers’ class unity and class consciousness is an indispensable task of Communists, that must be able to lead the working class towards the fulfillment of its historical mission of overthrowing capitalism and building a new, socialist society of free and equal human beings, in which it will be possible for everybody to work less and better for the common well-being of the whole society. This is the aim of our common struggle, dear comrades!
LONG LIVE SOCIALISM-COMMUNISM!
LONG LIVE THE TKP!
WORKERS ALLOVER THE WORLD, UNITE!
The Secretary General of the CC of the Communist Party (Italy)
Party for Socialism and Liberation Dear comrades,
On behalf of the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL), we send our warmest revolutionary greetings to the 2018 Conference of the Communist Party of Turkey.
Given the current economic and political crisis Turkey is facing, we realize the importance of the role TKP will play in organizing the struggle and resistance of the working class of Turkey to fight back against the assaults of the local and international capital and we wish you success with this Conference.
As communists waging struggle in the heart of the US empire and committed to the Marxist, Leninist and anti-imperialist principles also upheld by your party, we take the moment to express our internationalist solidarity with the TKP and our hope that the relation between our parties will continue to deepen.
Long live TKP!
Long live socialism and communism!

Коммунистической партии Турции (TKP)
Сегодня коммунисты Турции переживают один из самых трудных моментов своей истории.
Антикоммунизм с новой силой атакует права трудящихся и не дает им возможность защитить свои коренные интересы. С новой силой ущемляются права коммунистов, выступить в защиту трудящихся масс открыто, легально, в рамках действующей конституции.
Мы следим за Вашей борьбой и выражаем свое признание за мужество и принципиальность руководства и рядовых членов Компартии Турции.
Желаем успехов участникам конференции!
С товарищеским приветом,

Крайне важно, что темой вашей Конференции являются вопросы рабочего класса, на который в условиях капиталистической экономики в первую очередь ложатся все тяготы кризисных явлений.
Выражаем уверенность, что решения Конференции внесут достойный вклад в активизацию рабочего движения Турции, будут способствовать дальнейшему повышению эффективности деятельности вашей партии.
Мы высоко ценим то, что турецкие коммунисты хранят верность принципам марксизма-ленинизма и пролетарского интернационализма.

Workers’ Party of Belgium
On behalf of the Workers’ Party of Belgium (PTB-PVDA), we congratulate the Communist Party of Turkey with the holding of the 2018 Conference under the theme “TO THE WORKERS!” on September 15-16th, in İzmir.
We are living times of intensifying conflict and political instability, resulting from, and sharply illustrating the deep and multiple crisis of world capitalism, with its catastrophic social, democratic and ecological repercussions.
For the broad working class and its political representatives to meet these enormous challenges, a sustained struggle for social and democratic rights, for peace, people’s rights and climate justice is needed more than ever.
Throughout these concrete struggles, communist and workers parties, such as the TKP, are the harbingers of hope, as they place their activity in the perspective of a radically different society, catering to the workers’ and the people’s needs - in short, a socialist society.
During the current economic and political crisis in Turkey, there is certainly the need to foster the organized response and resistance of Turkey’s working class. Therefore we wish you success with this Conference and are confident that it take the measures that corresponds to the political and organizational requirements of the times. We are looking forward to hearing about its results.

Workers Party of Ireland
The Workers Party of Ireland sends warm comradely greetings to the Communist Party of Turkey on the occasion of its Conference on the 15th-16th September 2018 in Izmir under the theme “To the Workers” and sends its congratulations and best wishes to the TKP, the oldest party in Turkey, on the occasion of its 98th anniversary.
The Communist Party of Turkey is a symbol of hope for the Turkish working class, a party that approaches the issues confronting contemporary Turkey from the perspective of the working people. The TKP, proceeding under the slogan “this social order must change” recognises that the struggle against the US imperialism cannot be separated from struggle against the current social order.
In addition to the struggle to defend and advance the achievements of the working class and the poor and the resistance against the assaults of capital against labour the TKP confronts the growth of Islamic fundamentalism, obscurantism and reaction and the increasing oppressive influence of religion in the areas of education, culture and law.
As the TKP has repeatedly pointed out the struggle against imperialism, reactionary forces, authoritarianism, tyranny and fascism and the struggle against exploitation, inequalities and for social injustice cannot be separated from one another and must be viewed from the class perspective.
The Workers Party of Ireland declares its solidarity with the Communist Party of Turkey which represents the interests of the working class and defends workers’ and people’s rights and salutes the militants and supporters of the TKP which unambiguously promotes the socialist alternative. We are confident that the outcome of the Conference will strengthen and consolidate the TKP through its organisational measures and advance the struggle to increase the influence of the working class and orient it to the goal of socialism.
The Communist Party of Turkey, through its struggles and mass political work, has demonstrated its commitment to the interests of Turkish workers, to the struggle for equality, to providing a clear class based alternative to the failed capitalist system, to ending the power of the Turkish bourgeoisie, to the struggle for workers’-people’s power, for the overthrow of capitalism and the construction of the new socialist- communist society where workers will have fulfilled their historic mission.
With comradely greetings and best wishes,
Gerry Grainger International Secretary
On behalf of the Central Executive Committee Workers Party of Ireland
