The status quo of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) gained approval from the right
The Right Has Been Unified in the AKP
Besides the crimes committed during the propaganda period and the electoral frauds, the results of the referendum indicate two points: firstly, the AKP has unified the right and the latter has become one in the AKP. Secondly, a significant resistance is in rise against the rightist tendency that has marked the last 30 years of Turkey. The future of Turkey depends on organization of this resistance to socialism.
Warmongers cannot question Zionism
This commission must be rejected at once!
The commission that will investigate Israel’s attack on Mavi Marmara will be headed by Colombia’s President Alvaro Uribe Velez, who has transformed his country into a U.S. puppet referred as the Israel of Latin America.
This commission must be rejected at once, for a commission headed by the warmonger of Latin America is nothing but a mock to the face of the peoples of the world.
The Kurdish Question Cannot Be Solved in a Country Where the Left is Weak
The Kurdish question must be solved. However, as long as the Kurdish question is tried to be solved on the basis that actually creates and aggravates the problem, the solution becomes more and more distant.
The Kurdish question is a problem of equality, justice and freedom. Under a social system that is utterly far from equality, justice and freedom, the Kurdish question cannot be solved without the presence of a popular stance on the side of equality, justice and freedom.
Stop the show-off, take a step!
1- The Communist Party of Turkey demands the Israeli state to
a) End immediately the inhumane blockade in Gaza,
b) Retreat from all the occupied territories,
c) Release all the Palestinian prisoners arrested or sentenced because of resisting to occupation and violence,
d) Pay compensation to the Palestinian authorities for the destruction in Gaza,
e) Release those from the last aid flotilla that it has captured as prisoners.
We will cut off imperialism’s war scenarios at the pass
The pirate commandos trained by Israel Naval Forces mounted an operation this morning to capture the flotilla carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza and slaughtered unarmed civilians in the course of this outrageous operation.
We won Taksim, now we have to win the country!
We have a lot to do; we have a lot to achieve!
The Communist Party of Turkey salutes all laborers, students and intellectuals who rallied all over the country, furthermost at Taksim, Istanbul in order to empower the voice of the working class. The May Day rally at Taksim Square has been marked not only as a response of the masses to unemployment, poverty, exploitation, injustice and oppression, but also as a slap on the face of Prime Minister Erdoğan who had been planning to transform May 1 into a “Justice and Development Party carnival” so as to conceal his government’s anti-labor, collaborative and reactionary policies under the disguise of democratization.
We will bring imperialism, neoliberal constraints,
racism to account on the May Day!
The economic crisis is getting deeper in Europe. While it is deepening, the offensive of imperialism against labouring classes is getting more intensified. The imperialists tell Greece, which they used to call “the EU miracle” until recently, has gone bankrupt, and without any shame, they say “the Greek shall sell their islands to pay for their debt”. The response of the Greek worker to imperialism and the rule of capital echoes all around the Continent on May Day: Raise the class struggle, bring imperialism to account!
We are familiar with these policies!
The toiling masses of Greece will overcome!
Greece is on fire… Pledging that the “country is going bankrupt”, the bosses declared war against toiling masses. The salaries of public employees have been cut with the approval of all bourgeois parties. Pensions have been frozen. It has been announced that employment in the public sector will be reduced. The price of almost everything has been raised. The bosses have been rolling their sleeves to usurp workers’ right of vacation with pay. All remaining subsidies to agriculture, which has been devastated by the European Union policies, have been repealed.
The real force against the AKP government is on streets
Recent working class resistances in Turkey initiated a pattern change in Turkish politics, which had been shaped by the controversy between the armed forces and Justice and Development Party (AKP) or along ethnic conflicts. For the first time since 2001, the year when AKP came to power, there are significant signs of weakening in the social support base of the reactionary government. This is a critical moment for the future of Turkey and Turkish working class.
The working class cannot be forced to submit by telling tales and spreading fear
Do Justice to TEKEL Workers
When Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who is constantly abroad, stops by the country at seldom occasions, he is accustomed to address various crowds ready to applaud every word that comes out his mouth.
The Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) Provincial Chairmen, who got together in Ankara today, is a group that exploit the benefits of political power to the end; a group that would respond every word of the Prime Minister by yelling “Long Live the King!”.
