52th Anniversary - Statement of TKP-ML - for debate


With Persistence and Perseverance for a "Tighter, Stronger, More Determined War"!


Our Party TKP-ML, born as a result of the class struggle in our geography, within the world-shaking storms of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution led by Comrade Mao Zedong, is 52 years old!

The flag, which was opened on April 24, 1972, has been waving for 52 years under the leadership of Comrade Ibrahim Kaypakkaya, against all kinds of reformist and revisionist leadership: "We are the heirs of Comrade Mustafa Suphi and the TKP under his leadership", "Now we are raising a flag high in front of everyone's eyes".

While our Party has been waving the flag of communism for 52 years as the vanguard and leading force of the international proletariat in our geography, four general secretaries, tens of leading cadres, hundreds of fighters, militants and supporters, especially its founding leader, were immortalized. Thousands of our comrades were wounded. Thousands were imprisoned in the prisons of fascism. In its 52 years of struggle, our Party responded to all kinds of attacks by our class enemies with resistance. It won victories and took defeats against fascism. The Party paid the price and made them pay. It continued to wave the flag of communism opened under the leadership of Comrade Ibrahim Kaypakkaya. And as we enter our 52nd year of struggle, our Party especially our immortal comrades, injured, imprisoned and subjected to the torture of fascism, through our comrades' lives, blood, resistance and labor, has managed to create a tradition in the revolutionary and communist movement in Turkey.

For 52 years, the secret of the flag of communism that has been waved with perseverance is that our Party brings together Marxism-Leninism-Maoism with the aspirations and demands of our people of Turkish, Kurdish nations, various nationalities and beliefs, for liberation from exploitation, for freedom and independence. The foundation of our Party was laid in the most advanced actions of the working class and popular masses, by a limited number of cadres, especially our leading comrade Ibrahim Kaypakkaya, by equipping the class struggle in our geography with MLM science. The secret of our Party's 52nd year of struggle is the MLM science and the struggle of the masses. As long as our Party and the struggle of the working class and the masses of the people exist, the flag of communism will continue to fly high in these lands.

Our Party has gained positions and victories to the extent that it has been able to combine MLM science with the struggle of the masses. To the extent that it distanced itself from the struggle of the masses, it suffered defeats and lost positions. This is the concrete lesson that our 52-year history of struggle has taught us.

In the half-century since the founding of our Party, the struggle of the international proletariat and oppressed peoples has witnessed great upheavals. Most importantly, the working class and oppressed peoples lost the positions they gained through revolutions one by one. Our class enemies declared that "the class struggle is over" and "ideologies are dead". However, in a short time, the footsteps of the Imperialist Sharing War, which is inherent in imperialist capitalism, became more audible.

In the conditions where the 3rd Imperialist Sharing War is being discussed in the international arena and each camp of the imperialist bourgeoisie is making preparations accordingly, our geography comes to the fore as one of the centers of this war of sharing. After Iraq and Syria, the reactionary mullah regime of Iran is becoming more and more evident as the new target of the imperialists.

Zionist Israel, established as an outpost of imperialism in the Middle East, continues to be a threat to the peoples of the region, especially through genocidal attacks against the Palestinian nation.

The Turkish state, whose justification for existence is cooperation with imperialist capital and hostility to the people; It is preparing for new attacks against our people of Turkish, Kurdish nations, various nationalities and beliefs. As a useful member of NATO, the military organization of imperialism, it aims to increase the invasion and massacre attacks against the peoples of the region, especially the Kurdish nation, not only inside but also outside the borders. It is preparing for new massacres in order to use the increasing contradictions between imperialists for its own benefit.

At the current stage, Turkish fascism has condemned millions of workers and laborers to a wage below the hunger limit called minimum wage. The starvation wage has become the average wage. Millions of people are condemned to live at the limit of hunger and poverty and are worried about the future, while a handful of minorities who hold power live in luxury and splendor. The broad masses of the people are reacting to the situation they have been forced into. However, as can be seen in the last local elections, this reaction is wanted to be backed behind the opposition clique of the ruling classes. The aim is to keep the opposition of the masses within the order, to prevent new uprisings like Gezi and Kobane, and more importantly to prevent the armed struggle from reaching the masses.

In its 52nd year of struggle, our Party calls on workers, peasants and intellectuals, youth and women who are devoted to the cause of communism but whose beliefs and energies have been channeled in the wrong way due to revisionist and reformist leaderships, to organize, to grow the unshakable belief in the fire of "revolution" and "communism" that they carry subjectively in their heads and hearts through organized revolutionary struggle.

Long Live the 52nd Anniversary of the Founding of our Party!

Long live Marxism Leninism Maoism!

Long live TKP-ML, TIKKO, TMLGB and KKB!
