For the generations who have free ideas and free conscience…

Başlıksız 3

November 10, is the day of 79th death anniversary of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, who is founder of Republic Turkey.

Today, Communist Party of Turkey issued a statement for the 79th death anniversary of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

“With respect…

If Mustafa Kemal Atatürk became a historical leader, there are historical reasons for that.

Mustafa Kemal is a historical leader for ruining imperialist plans of sharing the Anatolia after the First World War.

Mustafa Kemal is a historical leader for foreseeing the end of the Ottoman Empire.

Mustafa Kemal is a historical leader for taking the risk of abolishing the Sultanate and Caliphate.

Mustafa Kemal is a historical leader for using his personal authority fully to establish a secular Republic.

Mustafa Kemal is a historical leader for establishing a friendly relationship based on mutual interests with the Soviet Union.

Mustafa Kemal is a historical leader for taking progressive steps and speeding up the flow of history.

On the 79th anniversary of his death, those who are holding ceremonies with fake cries and heroic speeches without mentioning these reasons making him a historical leader and without confessing that all these progressive achievements are gone are hypocritical liars. We will denounce them.

On the other hand, those who don’t want to see the fact that independence, secularism, sovereignty and republicanism can’t coexist with an exploitation order will keep getting disappointed. Our call to them is as follows: ‘If you really want a secular, independent and sovereign Republic, you must fight to overthrow this social system dominated by big monopolies.’

Turkey is not in the 1920s. The social structure of the country and the circumstances have deeply changed. The bosses were just growing at the time. Now we live under the domination of an exploiting class that steals, ravages, plunders everything inside the country and endangers not only our people but whole world for their regional ambitions.

Now, this exploiting class will either be overthrown or the darkness will deepen. The material conditions of socialism were very weak in 1923 in comparison to now. Therefore, Mustafa Kemal and his friends made a different choice. As for now, we don’t have any other choice than socialism for the future of our country. Turkey will certainly meet with that choice.

With this consciousness and determination, on November 10, 2017, with respect to Mustafa Kemal…”

The Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) held a big event in Izmir on Oct. 28, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution and the 94th anniversary of Turkey’s foundation

The event of TKP, which is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution led by the Bolsheviks in 1917 and the 94th anniversary of Republic of Turkey’s foundation in 1923, attracted striking attention despite rainfall with the attendance of thousands of TKP members and friends.

The event, “Socialism will suit very well to the Republic”, started with a performance on the October Revolution in 1917 and its achievements for humanity.

Member of Political Bureau of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Dimitris Arvanitakis and the Secretary-General of the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE) Astor Garcia also attended the event.

KEMAL OKUYAN: COMMUNISTS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN REPUBLICAN

ekran_resmi_2017-10-28_20-11-521

Kemal Okuyan, the General Secretary of the TKP, delivered a speech during the event. Arguing that the question, “When did the communists become republicans?” is a superficial one, Okuyan dwelled on the historical bridge between the modern revolutions and the stance of communists:

When did the communists become republicans? Look how superficial is this question…

 Modern history starts with a great revolution; The French Revolution, in 1789. It has almost been 230 years. This revolution opened way to the foundation of the first Republic in France, in 1792. Afterwards, in 1804 the French Empire was proclaimed  In 1848 the revolutions shook Paris again and the republic was re-built. In 1851 it was demolished for one more time. In 1870-1871 the working class in France stepped in. The Paris Commune, the rule of the working people, re-established the republic. The origins of the song that we shall sing together at the end of this night, ‘The International’, come from this Commune. And who demolished the Republic that was founded by the proletariat of Paris? Hitler, the blood-handed dictator of the German monopolies. This same person in 1933 was the one that demolished the first German Republic that was founded in 1919 again by a revolution. In Spain the working class, the communists defended the republic that was founded in 1931 and finally turned over Franco, the favourite man of the bosses and landlords. 

In 1917 at the moment that the first socialist revolution was achieved, the working class named its power as socialist republic.

Through out whole of this story, we stand by the republic. In the other side stand the obscurants, the blooded dictators of the monopolies, the bigots, the priests, the kings, sultans and exploiters.

In Turkey we also have roots in 1923. The Communists have always been republicans. Yes, the republic that was founded in 1923 with a revolutionary breakthrough firstly inwardly got rotten then ruined, by the same forces, so the reactionaries. The question itself is wrong. The question of when did the communists become republicans. We were always here.

 But why? What is the meaning of the Republic for the communists, so that they historically, in the past and today, stand by the republic? Republic means popular will, that represents not the God nor the dynasty but the People. Kings, sultans, shahs, sheikhs, tsars they all rule on behalf of dynasties or God. Instead the popular will has two aspects. The people are equal and not governed by religion. If the holy one gets in the way, there is no longer a republic. Look, we are talking here. We are challenging the exploiters, the imperialists. But, as they squeeze they are hiding behind their sacredness. Why so? Because as the name implies, the sacred is inviolable. We cannot interfere with the religious beliefs of the people but just because of this deceit we have to pull the pin of the ones that are hiding behind religion. 

 That is right, you should not let God be involved in your governmental affairs. This principle summarizes secularism. Also, you should not let other countries interfere  your own internal affairs. And this is sovereignty. And the popular will has to be reflected. Today there is no secularism. There is a country that is being governed with Holy texts. Set aside the blusters of our sultan, are the European Union adjustment laws still valid? They are. As ‘strategic partners’ didn’t they make attacks with the USA? They did. Is the membership to NATO still valid? It is. Well, is the common will equally reflected? The ruling classes possess the media, money and they use religion as well. Excuse me, but we do not, we cannot call this a republic. Look, on 2019 the presidential elections will take place. We need 100.000 registered signatures. This costs 10-15 million Turkish Lira. For the Palace, this is nothing. But, does anybody here own 10-15 million Turkish Lira? The votes are equal but people are not!

 Remember the old question. Is the vote of the shepherd equal to the vote of an engineer? Should be equal. As long as we are talking about humans not sheep! The existing system turns humans to sheep, with money, cheat and superstitions. And then the popular will is stupefied! There is no popular will in a system that spirits away the human.

 What were we saying? This country is not a republic anymore. So, we have to build a new one, not to be demolished again. How? I hold in my hand the Constitution written down by Communist Party of Turkey. We call it ‘Socialist Constitution’. The one that we shall suggest and apply in the working people’s power in Turkey. Here are the introductory decrees which no one can propose or dare to change:

 “Article 1- The Turkish Republic, without any discrimination as to language, religion, race and sex, is a sovereign socialist state that represents the common will and defends the interests of the working people, peasants and all labourers.” This means equal citizenship. There is no room for exploiters. Does anyone have an objection? No, good.

 “Article 2- No regulation, profession, operation or action can allow man to exploit man; planning and taking measures to ensure this, is among the primary tasks of the state.” Socialism is an emancipatory system but there are some red lines. Exploitation is forbidden. Increasing one’s wealth by stealing the labour of another, is forbidden. Do you have any objection to this? No.

 “Article 3- The political life and the governmental affairs, altogether or in parts, cannot be based on religion or religious laws. The belief in religion is an individual choice; every citizen is free to believe in any or no religion, and is free to make or not make it public. This is the real definition of secularism. We are in Izmir, so I don’t even have to ask but, is there an objection? No.

 “Article 4- In the Republic of Turkey where many different nations and people live together, all citizens benefit from the same rights, without any discrimination of ethnical or national roots. No nation has more role or responsibility than other nations or peoples in organizing the sovereign socialist state, in building and preserving an equal socialist system.” There is no nationalism here, no ethnical politics or separatism; there is fraternity, solidarity, equality. Is there any objection to this? No.

Article 5- The inviolability of the first four decrees of the Constitution are under guarantee of the organized society. Here we are not referring to the army, but the society. We are referring to the workers, youth, students, peasants, intellectuals, i.e. the main articles in the Constitution are under the guarantee of all the people. The army shall be the army of the people, not of the palace or NATO. 

Well, let us continue…What purposes shall these basic decrees serve? Factories, farms, forests, natural treasures (both underground and not), shall be under the possession of the working class. This event started with these words; from just the beginning of the October Revolution in 1917.  ‘Workers, be watchful and guard like the apple of your eye your land, grain, factories, equipment, products, transport- all that from now onwards will be entirely your property, public property’.

How nice. Workers, guard your factories, land and grain. Because these belong to the workers. After reserving the share for the needs of the society the whole value of the production shall be paid to the workers. What is this share? Education, health, dams, investments for new technologies, parks, cultural palaces… Not a penny to Koç, Sabancı, Ağaoğlu and the rest exploiters. Not a penny to the Palace. This is what we shall do: Stop the leakage. And we will have the sources for building a developed classless society.

 Then the working hours shall decrease. Humanity has given struggle for this and gained the right of 8-hour workday. But now, we are going back to the old ages. Technology develops and we are work more. It was said that people will be replaced by robots! Instead, people are turning into robots. In socialism the working hours shall gradually decrease. Listen what is written in the Socialist Constitution: “The reduction of work hours, is the precondition for the development of the human kind in all dimensions and is one of the primary targets of the society. The working hours cannot be more than 35 per week.” One prohibition more. The prohibitions is socialism are a bit different, these are positive prohibitions.

There are some more… “Article 28- Ensuring working opportunity and working security toevery citizen of any age capable of working is among the main duties of the state. The state cannot abolish these two basic rights at any condition and cannot ignore the conditions that give cause for this.” That means, unemployment is forbidden!

Since we are talking about bans. Here you are, one more: “All citizens of the Republic of Turkey are free to speak, make propaganda and get organized. Racist or fascist ideas, ideas that support openly or indirectly the exploitation of man by man, warmongering, abuse of religion cannot use the right to make propaganda and get organized as they block the free development of the society.” Warmongering is forbidden, racism, abuse of religion is forbidden. As far as religion is concerned, they say that we shall interfere in the beliefs of the people. That is a lie. This is what we say in the Socialist Constitution: “Each citizen of the Republic of Turkey has the freedom of belief and pray. Not any institution or person can put pressure on any other person.” This is a basic human right. Socialism values the basic human rights and freedoms.  And we continue:

The attempt of the politicization of religion and the regulation of the social life with religious laws are averted. No reference can be made in any official document about the religious beliefs of the citizens.” This is also essential for secularism. Comrades, friends, I continue: “People have the right to live in environments in which they can re-create themselves. According to this right, all citizens of the Republic of Turkey are provided with the right of a residence suitable for their needs. Every kind of precaution is taken so that the residences are properly constructed or improved against earthquakes, floods and other natural disasters. Heating, electric energy and water are supplied for free. Reducing the transportation on highways and extending more safe, comfortable and effective ways of transportation in urban and intercity transport.” 

Let me stop now. I ask you: Don’t you want to live in a country like this? Think about it… In a country that nobody can say that men and women are not equal, women will not be killed, the statues will not be spitted on, the scientists will not be abandoned to the holding companies, the theatre and opera houses will not be turned to shopping malls, the people with different sexual orientations will not be marginalized, will not be treated as sick people… 

During the day not being exploited, at night not sleeping hungry as Nazim Hikmet said.

Do we want this? Is this possible? On 1917 the people that believed in this, took action. In the Soviet Union all the above started being real. They passed the sea but they got drown in the river. They made some mistakes, they underestimated the enemy, i.e. the imperialism, the capitalism. The Soviet Union was demolished…

So, what shall we do? We shall build another, stronger republic. Socialism will suit very well to the “republic”.

Stating that the decrees and articles of the Socialist Constitution shall be under the guarantee of the organized society, the communist party general secretary Okuyan continued: “Here we are not referring to the army, but the society. We are referring to the workers, youth, students, peasants, intellectuals, i.e. the main articles in the Constitution are under the guarantee of all the people. The army shall be the army of the people, not of the palace or NATO.”

“During the day not being exploited, at night not sleeping hungry,” Okuyan summarized socialist living conditions with reference to a famous poem of renown Turkish communist poet Nâzım Hikmet.

“SOCIALISM WILL SUIT VERY WELL TO THE REPUBLIC!”

“Do we want this? Is this possible? In 1917, the people who believed in this took action. In the Soviet Union, all the above came true. They passed the sea but they got drown in the river. They made some mistakes, they underestimated the enemy, i.e. imperialism, capitalism. The Soviet Union was demolished,” Okuyan said, pointing out to the historical achievements and today’s need for a socialist revolution in Turkey and other countries.

“So, what shall we do? We shall build another, stronger republic. Socialism will suit very well to the Republic!” Kemal Okuyan concluded his speech.

Following Okuyan’s speech, the event continued with artistic performances of TKP member or friend musicians, theatre players, dancers and poets.

Dimitris Arvanitakis, Member of the Communist Party of Greece, KKE, and Astor Garcia, Secretary General of the Communist Party of the Spanish People,PCPE, spoke to those attending the event.

The event, “Socialism will suit very well to the Republic”, ended with the live performance of the International anthem chanted by thousands of people.

In October 28, the city, beloved Izmir, Turkey have been home to TKP and about 3500 communists in Open Air Theatre at International Izmir Fair area. Why 3500 people? This is my guess; because that theatre area is about 3000 people, but there were many people who didn’t sit on benches (due to there was no place on the benches) and have sit on the corridors or stood up at that night. The autumn rains that started after the beginning of the meeting also rain seemed to have not affected anyone, and everyone was eager to continue to be there as long as how long the meeting lasts.

I saw many communists in the same feeling and thought at that night. And I thought, can the same be spread all over the world? So there were representatives of Greek and Spanish communists at the meeting. Can this spread more widely? World international communist youth organizations are doing this, well, is the same idea of being on the right path among the adult communists?

What extent can a Russian communist accept the wrong, and non-scientific writings about Lenin or Stalin? Or, what extent a Turkish communist can accept the wrong and non-scientific approaches to Ataturk and Anatolia historical events?: Up to a point.

Firstly, my idea is that people can build a really beautiful planet by taking lessons from mistakes in the Soviet Union in especially after Lenin era, and also by evaluating it on a very good model like Cuba. For all this, all differences must be left aside, no matter what nationality or race they have, the people should approach the subject scientifically. And the eastern and western communists should put together their historical processes, especially without under the influence of western imperialism, and go on to model their examples. Nobody can know Anatolian’s history of communism, socialism better than a communist in Anatolia. Every determination has been made, or every article is written or will be written about communists of Russian, Turkey or Greek(I am giving these 3 countries as example but the examples can be expanded with many countries), would be missing or half, without taking advantage of the historical accumulation of Anatolian or Russian, or Greek communists from themselves. (Of course, the western people speak very well Turkish, Russian or Greek, and if they read the historical process of these countries from their sources at first hand, and they have the possibility to scan all these countries sources, this case is not valid.)Especially eastern countries are closed societies. Their historical facts are perceived very differently in the rest of the world because of the influence of the anti-propaganda made by the west, and also because they can not create much of the opportunity to explain themselves better to the world. But the world is living different era anymore. All these countries communist parties web pages on the net. And my advise is, if the western people want to approach in scientificly, they can look at these pages easily. Other wise it would be as same as being into loop.

As long as without taking advantage of the historical accumulation of eastern communists, each dissolution and deep disagreement arise. And every perpetuation is an element that will facilitate the work of the imperialists.

The road to take is long and difficult; and this is not a way to be taken with constantly talking, or discussing with each other’s and without knowing the truths of historical facts from first hand. Otherwise, this road can never go with together.

The interview with Migo on communism, Marxism and the extraterrestrial civilizations

While I was eating dinner last night, following thoughts came to mind. There were minerals, proteins, vitamins inside my meal at food bowl. I have all of them at the same time, easily. If capitalism doesn’t exist, I would go to the farmers or their cooperatives one by one, to find the best and I was going to lose a lot of time to create this meal. Of course, if I had my kingdom, everything would be better, even my single look would have made it possible for me to come a meal I wanted! I will not go into this subject, because my survey on “my kingdom or an administration as Migo’s conditions” had been failed, so long ago.

Anyway, while I was think about it, thanking the god of bone and capitalism and shaking my tail with joy, Migo asked me the reason of my excitement. And our conversation with him has started with the sense of rule of the aliens, and immediately afterwards came about the communist aliens. The talkings between are not very noticeable, so I skip those parts. And I wanted to have an interview with him about the communist understanding of the aliens. Migo accepted this. You will read below, the interview with Migo is a very first in the world. Maybe they’ll give me a Pulitzer prize for this, who knows? 😉

The interview with Migo on communism, Marxism and the extraterrestrial civilizations

-Migo, when you came to the world, why, and how did you decide to become a communist? Was it the parallel of a similar tendency where you came from?

-Good question, WD. I had came to the Humok library before I arrived to the planet Earth. I had stopped by Humok library. You know, Humok is a library where I discovered that Iron Maiden is the best heavy metal band in the universe, and I have mentioned about it before. I have read a book at there. The book’s title was “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe?”. On the first page of the book, there was a footnote that written “Notux species do not need to read this book; they are in a hopeless case,” by the author. Although I’ve found this footnote as racist, I’ve read the book anyway. If I say that I was unaffected by what I’ve read, that would be lie. Because there were detailed theories that approach to the whole universe and discuss all possible possibilities, their breakpoints, and better solution possibilities for almost every living species. For almost every living species, not only for a species, the book was telling that the universe could be really good. The author did not just talk about these, also was aiming to exemplify them by proving the theories that scientifically revealed by ownself.

-What kind of examples Migo, can you give details?

-For example, I’ve just visited the Yo-78kk planet, before the Humok library.

-Of course, as always you can not tell the location and coordinates of Yo-78kk.

-Yes, as always, the rules that the Galactic council has put on, prevent me from disclosing some things, WD. On the Yo-78kk planet, there was an event that had never happened on other planets in their solar system. There was a phenomenon that emerged after a situation similar to what the earthlings called “technologized”.

-Robots were revolt against, were not they? I knew it! If the aliens would not attack, this too, will be the most terrible thing that we, the earthlings ever lived!

-No, WD. What I’m talking about is different. On the planets I’ve already seen, there is no concept or description like the earthlings’s robot concept. If I return to the subject, again, I have not seen that in any of the planets I’ve visited, the inventions that made by the planet’s species, may cause a change in their administrative structures, until I’ve came to Yo-78kk. The Yoska species, so the species at the Yo-78kk, send their annual production to the union they are affiliated with. The union gives a biological pigment of the type “e” called xonfosil, which Yoskas need, for in return. This is a pigment that increases their resistance to blue light. The Yo-78kk planet is into an electromagnetic wave spectrum, where the high incidence of blue color and light are reflected. Although this event causes to their movements very fast, they can somehow balance it with taking xonfosil pigment.

-I think you have the absence of this pigment, Migo.

-Why do you ask such a question WD?

-You’re constantly moving fast, walking like a runner, or you’re eating like how a squirrel eats peanut.

-Hmm, I did not notice that. However WD, you constantly seek to divert the subject.

-All right, all right, go ahead please, Migo. (you see, my dear readers, I know very well how to touch an alien’s sore spot, hehe!)

-Briefly, in exchange for the xonfosil pigment, Yoskas have the chance of normal life. They have to send their productions to the union in order to get xonfosil. 1000 Yoskas are represented by one Yoska in the administrative structure. This process develops under the control of their “administrative structures” with the expression of the earthlings. In fact, this administrative structure, in every new year of Yo-78kk, is being renewed again. Those who have not been involved in administrative affairs, such as a kind of jury membership, take part in the administration at the following year. But for facilitating this, that is, to facilitate the functioning of this alternating administration, a device was invented which we can call “technological” with the earthlings language. According to this device, the sorting was automatically determined. However, after the first 10 years of the device operation, it began to fail. As a result of this breakdown, those who served in the previous year, took a duty in the following year, or their seats were empty, and an equitable understanding disappeared.

This new situation, what kind of trouble can bring, you may think WD. However, the life span of a Yoska is three Yo-78kk years. So after this breakdown, a Yoska, who took the duty at administration at the last year of his life, was called to the duty after he died. Because he was no longer, his seat was empty. And the 1000 Yoskas that he represented were bogged down. Those 1000 Yoskas deprived of xonfosil pigment. Yo-78kk planet turned into a planet where the Yoskas ran like crazy around and could not adjust the speed of its own movement.

-Did not they think to fix the problem of the device, Migo?

-That Yoska who invented the device had died, and none of the others knew how to operate it, and of course how to make a new one.

-What kind of solution was for Yoskas in the book of “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe” that you’ve read in Humok library? And what is it’s relating with that you decided to be a communist alien?

-In a part of the book “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe,” the followings were written:

“The every living species that reveals use device due to its own laziness, even if deserves the things that might happen to them as first, if the vital integrity and the obligatory social organization that occured from it’s necessity, is interrupted with this reason, then the way to overcome the crises is that to arise against those who created the marketplace of their own production, and to act.”

What was the product of Yoskas? It is a mine under the soil of Yo-78kk planet; that 3 different planets need it. So, in short, the author of the book said that, “You are lazy primarily, but the reason that drives you to use this device is the marketplace which is created by the union that demands the material you mined for, with the most optimistic estimate. If you do not act against the creators of this marketplace and the problems they caused, another problems will emerge.”

The union which the Yoskas were affiliated, in a way, was a union that obliged to provide the balances. It was not a commercial union. It was assigned a task so that the exchange of planets would be complete smoothly and seamlessly. It was doing this with full authority by taking from all the other planets in, which including the Yo-78kk planet has been. This authorisation also gave the authority to the union, to research and report on the facts that the productions of the each planet were over more than necessary or under-produced, and to solve problems. The real problem here was that, as far as I have heard from a Yoska, the Yoskas population was always the same. Birth and death rates were always the same, constant. Their population was never different from a year ago. However, in two of the three planets where were needed Yo-78kk’s mine, the populations were constantly increasing, and they needed more and more in each year the mine of the Yoskas.

Even if the author of the book mentions the possibility of their laziness, actually Yoskas invented the device because of they had no time to choose the simplest administrative task, since they had to extract more mine with the same number of workers. The main problem here was the task of ensuring the balance between the planets. And if Yoskas did not act against them, they would be vanished in some way. In fact, it happened like that. Many of them lost their mental health due to their extreme speed of motion, and a new species were brought to their planets from another solar system, began to extract the mines Yoskas extracted before. So their planet was occupied in some way. The remaining Yoskas can now be seen in the territories where reserved for them on the Yo-78kk planet, while selling handmade gift with three-hole metal coloring; this belongs to the culture of Yoska.

When I came to the planet Earth, WD, I saw that there was the only book that addressed what happened to Yoskas or similar problems. This was the Communist Manifesto. This has increased my tendency to the earthling communists.

-Migo, if I was a Yoska, I would have wanted a share from the mine I extracted, and stored them, after then increase the demand for the market, I would have sold them in exchange for the high amount of xonfosil pigments at the black market. This would have given me a comfortable and healthy life in my fleeting, three-years of Yoska life.

-While you are doing this WD, how would you move without thinking of other Yoskas? And while the mining system was under record, how did you plan to do that?

-Hmmm, I think that Yoskas need to learn the mafia system as first.

-Mafia?

-Yes Migo, the mafia system, which has got a father at the leader place, organized around him, also if there is opponent’s family, this system wipes them out, after then filmed about that family by Hollywood. They are especially Italian, even Sicilian.

-I know what the mafia is, WD. I do not understand which part of our interview is linked with the mafia.

-You asked me a question, I gave you an answer from the mafia when I answered that question, Migo! While you have been saying that the solution will be provided with communism, if these guys have found a solution with the mafia; what is my guilt on it! I also plan to be a candidate for pulitzer with this interview. With this reason, do not mislead me, and do not force me to answer away from our subject. I can not even make an interview you, Migo!

-Did I force you, WD?

-Okay, whatever. I would cut off these parts of the interview before publishing, after then I publish them. Let’s come to next question. Now, you have read the book “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe,” you realized that some problems on the planets you saw can be solved with what this book describes, and when you came to the earth, you saw similarities with the communist manifesto and you decided to be communist. Well, after you have read your book, “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe”, that have you decided to be a godless-atheist communist too? Or are there aliens who are believers in God and being communist at outer space?

-That has been a different question. In fact, I would rather go through the examples of the theories in the book, and I’ve thought I would answer on those questions, WD.

-I was going to ask you those kinds of questions Migo, but you’re talking about theories, ideas, and so on. And after a while these topics can make the readers feel sleepy. I mean, it does not have the charm of it; can you see. If I’d like to add an alien photo of yours in here, to attract attention, everyone already will run away, and my prize plan would go down the plughole. That’s why, I thought that we would enter such a interesting subject like atheism that would be striking. (This paragraph will change completely, and of course it will not be shared with the readers)

-Well, seeing that you’re the interviewer, I need to answer. The biggest reason why I read this book was that it was recommended to me by someone else. Otherwise, it would have been a great coincidence to find and read the book “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe” in Humok, the largest library of the universe, wouldn’t be? Which is, there is no such thing as coincidence, it was impossible to choose to read this book in the library, I can say it was zero probability. He was a friend of mine with name Reedaz from the planet Juilcox, who recommended me this book. I had visited to Juilcox, and Reedaz told me about the book, also he had a reason. Reedaz described himself as “cosmbrado”. He is a follower and member of the group which called themselves “Cosmos solidarity brothers”. They describe themselves as cosmbrado and call to each other as cosmbrados. We can say the word of earthlings like this, is comrade. The cosmbrados are the ones closest to the communists on the planet Earth. The answer to the question you asked, is that if the cosmbrados are representatives of the kind of communist movement of the universe, yes there is no god belief inside them. I had already told you a long time ago that I have never encountered a living creature with a God or like similar belief with the earthings. So, it is unreasonable to search for it in something that is not already there, WD. The absence of my god faith is also nothing to do with the “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe” book, I was the same before.

-Are you one of the cosmbrados, Migo?

-No, I was not a member of their group. I had come to the world, and I have not had contact with them for a long time. But of course when I meet them again, they will be the first to express my impressions and communism here. I’m sure for many things they will both amaze and be glad.

-Those who plan to attack to the Earth in the future will be the cosmbrados; is that so, Migo?

-What!

-Didn’t you say that “when I meet them again”, Migo! So there will be an attack here, you will go with running to them by saying “welcome comrade”, or “welcome cosmbrados” with hugs, and you will help them invade the earth!

-They are the “most civilized” group, with the definition of the earthlings as much as I know. A group so advanced, why they plan to attack the earth, WD?

-So, will the aliens never attack the earth?

-I do not understand what’s relevant with the cosmbrados, WD.

-If they are same as you told about, they will communicate with the earth in a higher and wiser way, instead of attacking the earth, Migo, won’t they?

-Yes, the cosmbrados will not attack earth. But it is not possible to generalize, so scientifically it is not possible to say “no” to your question, WD. The universe is huge, I only saw five galaxies into it, also I thought we were talking about cosmbrados.

-You mean, in the galaxies you have seen, there could be the other species out of the cosmbrados, and in the galaxies you have not seen, that can attack the earth.

-Any of the living creatures in the galaxies I saw, do not say “Let’s go and attack the earth; let’s make the earthlings upset,” while looking at the earth, In fact, the extraterrestrials do not too much care about the planet earth. However, in fact, the reason underlying your “alien attack” problem, is I think, your passionate of being hero, WD. If some day the alien attack happens, you want to be like the heroic dog Dzhul’bars of the 2nd world war, and then want to the heroic stories would be written on your behalf. But this possibility is one in 89 million.

-One in 89 million is bigger than one in 90 million, Migo; that means I can still be a hero! And also Dzhul’bars becomes me irritated!

-I know he did, WD. Do you have another question?

-For now, thank you for your answers. Maybe we can go on to these subjects later times in a new interview, Migo.

-The subjects that you will bring to constantly the alien invasion?

-Are you kidding, I have never done this!

52 YEARS AFTER FASCIST GENOCIDE, INDONESIANS SCARED OF “COMMUNIST GHOSTS” | OffGuardian

The mythological King Midas’ touch turned everything to gold, whereas King Corporate-Capitalism’ touch turns everything to SHIT!

52 YEARS AFTER FASCIST GENOCIDE, INDONESIANS SCARED OF “COMMUNIST GHOSTS”

From Jakarta and Yogyakarta:Andre Vltchek

It was once again a hot, muggy day in Jakarta. The air was full of pollutants, epic traffic jams blocking entire center of the city. Biasa, as locals would say, or in a lax translation, ‘business as usual’.

It is September 29th, 2017, Friday, just one day before the most sinister anniversary in the entire Southeast Asia.

On September 30th, 1965, the Indonesian military obeying orders from foreign powers (mainly the US and the UK), overthrew the progressive and anti-imperialist government of President Sukarno, murdering between 1 and 3 million men, women and children (including almost all members of the Communist Party of Indonesia – PKI). This was done with the direct help of almost all the major religious organizations (Muslim, Protestant, Catholic and Hindu). The bloodshed continued well into 1966, and the “Rivers were choked with corpses and ran red from blood,” as I was told by Pramoedya Ananta Toer, the greatest Indonesian novelist. All the hopes for a socialist, just and egalitarian motherland were wasted.

Before the coup, Indonesia used to be a true internationalist nation, and was one of the proud founders of the Non-Aligned Movement (the West Javanese city of Bandung hosted its establishing conference in 1955). President Sukarno and his progressive and patriotic government used to hold in their hands almost all the natural resources, trying to build a proud, artistic and productive nation. Sukarno once even humiliated the US Ambassador, in front of a huge crowd, at a packed stadium: “To hell with your aid!” He did not need any Western aid. He was presiding over potentially one of the richest nations on Earth.

The Communist Party of Indonesia (PKI), the third largest in the world after those of the Soviet Union and China, was going to win the elections, comfortably and democratically, in 1966, while being fully supported by President Sukarno. Their manifesto was clear: anti-imperialism, social justice and land reforms. But who were some of the largest landowners in Indonesia during that period? Religious leaders! And they, together with the military and corrupt elites, decided: “No!” This has to be stopped! No justice. No internationalism. No socialism.” They betrayed the nation and its people; they committed treason and on September 30, 1965, overthrew socialist democracy.

The results were horrifying. Perhaps the worst massacres of the 20th Century took place. Mass slaughter, mass rape, and cutting off of female breasts, torture, and shortly after the initial horrors, overflowing prisons and concentration camps. Around 40% of all the teachers of Java were slaughtered and the military was substituted into the school classrooms. Film studios and traditional theatres were shut down, and writers were sent to Buru concentration camp. Intellectualism was fully discouraged, while Communism, the Chinese language and culture, but also all progressive arts and creativity were either ridiculed, or out rightly banned. Promoted instead, were Western-style turbo-capitalism (that which was invented for the colonies, not that for the local consumption in Europe and North America), ‘religions’ (based on repetitive rituals, not on intellectual or spiritual search for God), ‘family values’ (read: patriarchal oppression), an empty pop culture, and selfishness, boosted by consumerism. All this combined gave birth to some of the worst corruption levels in the world.

Indonesia as it used to be before September 30, 1965, died. Unable to produce anything of substantial value, it began perpetrating the unbridled plunder of its own natural resources, predominantly on behalf of foreign conglomerates. The entire beautiful and naturally rich, enormous islands, like Borneo (the largest island in Asia and the second largest in the world), Sumatra and Papua, were converted into devastated, poisoned and fully privatized ecological and social nightmares.

*

It seems that killing everything decent and hopeful has not been enough for this regime. Even memories have to be killed, even dreams. The great progressive past of Indonesia is being smeared and twisted, until there is nothing more left, only confusion and mechanical religious, family and commercial rituals.

Now, one of the mainstream Indonesian magazines Tempo put on its 25 September – 1 October 2017 cover: “SEKALI LAGI HANTU PKI” (“Once Again, Ghost of PKI”).

Whenever it suits the corrupt elites, the military and the religious cadres (three main pillars of the Indonesia oppressive regime), the Communist ghost is evoked. It is depicted as a monstrous, nasty, and murderous creature. Indonesian children were taught that the Communist hammer was there to smash the heads of the people, while the sickle was – to cut their throats…

Small talk with a stray dog

These scenes were broadcasted via internet yesterday. I don’t know where these scenes were taken. It is obvious the young man on the video wasn’t aware that he was taped. The words of the young man are very openhearted. Maybe he said these with the effect of the wine -I suppose probably empty- bottle into his hand. I don’t know. 🙂

Here this small talk at the video with translation in English:

My biggest expectation from a dog is “bark voice”. I am expecting from a dog to say “bark”. For example, I am expecting from a cat “miaow”. I am expecting from a bird “cheeping”. So, this is what we we expect from you. You make your case as much as you can do. Could I explain? If you resist with this way, this is not a resistance. It would’t be with this way. There is no reaction from you. You have not given even a respond. Look, I’m talking, I’m telling you some things. You do not have self defense mechanism. Animals, instinct, Freud have come to mind, but you do not even have an instinctual approach.

As a dog, you should give credit to the bread which you ate. You should become the labourer. You’re a communist dog, a Marxist dog. Did you understand? All the dogs and all animals are the leftists in my sight. But I did not see that light inside you. In an another time when I come back, I want to find you a little bit more concentrated, a bit more involved in life, a little more literated, so with more philosophical approaches into the life.

According to WD, the young man at video is not right. WD says that he wished he’d like to meet him, and say some things about humans and especially cats to him too. And WD added,”this video is very insulting, and we are not going to learn how is to be a laborer from the human kind!”

Also, I am wondering where does the cat go by running in high speed in 1:07 minutes at video. Maybe, it understood what the young man said and it goes to notify to the other cats.:)

Longing for the Soviet Union

New research: The longing for the Soviet Union in the former Soviet countries is rising

According to a new research, unhappiness in former socialist countries and longing for the Soviet Union are rising.

According to a new study by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), while the dissatisfaction of people in their lives in the former Soviet countries is rising, the longing for the Soviet Union is also growing rapidly. The research from Estonia to Mongolia in 51 countries in 34 countries reveals striking results.

More than 50% of those surveyed think that their lives will improve if they return to a communist system. Only 15% of the Russians think that their lives improved after the Soviet Union’s dissolution. This ratio was around 30% in 2010. Only 9% of participants say that their financial situation has been positive in the last four years.

Another feature part of the study is the way the EBRD interprets of the datas.

EBRD interprets people’s longing for the Soviet Union as a desire to return to “an authoritarian system” or “the control economy” by reading the results of the research from the angle of “democracy or authoritarian system”. According to the EBRD, people are still hesitant about “open system, democracy and free market economy” despite the time spent there.

EBRD chief economist Sergey Guriyev says that “people could not see the benefits of passing to the free market from the control economy”. Guriyev says that the most important factor in this issue is the people lose their jobs or the risk of losing their jobs and he continues:

“If the society does not see the benefits of reforms, then ultimately these reforms will fail. At the moment, the vast majority of people in our countries prefer authoritarian rule instead of democracy. In Germany, 80% is in favor of democracy… This leads to huge, very big questions: What was the wrong and what should be done?”

Anyway, majority doesn’t care already who lives in poverty  circumstances and who are exploited by capitalism. The majority of the human beings, hey, never mind! Hymn is beatiful, isn’t it? Already my opinion, the Hymn of the USSR,  1977 version is the best hymn ever. 🙂

Cuba’s ambassador:’We are ready to resist the US for another 50 years’

soL News talked with Cuba’s ambassador to Ankara, Alberto Gonzales Casals, on the legacy of Fidel in Cuba and the country without Fidel

Interview by Erman Cete – Nahide Ozkan

Tuesday, 29 November

Upon the loss of the legendary Cuban leader Fidel Castro, both friends and enemies of Cuba have made complimentary statements about Fidel; however, a vigilant pleasure came from the biggest enemy, the US.

US President-elect Donald Trump apparently revealed that he considers Fidel’s death as an “opportunity” to overthrow socialism in Cuba. Furthermore, the leaders of the Republican Party have announced that Trump will try to withdraw the “initiative” which started under the presidency of Barack Obama.

soL News talked with Cuba’s ambassador to Ankara, Alberto Gonzales Casals, on the legacy of Fidel in Cuba and the country without Fidel.

‘FIDEL MEANS REVOLUTION FOR ME’

Fidel has had great importance not only for the Cuban people or Latin America but also for all the oppressed who are pursuing equality and liberty across the world. Responding to the question what Fidel means for him, Casals says, “First of all, he meant revolution for me. I was born into the revolution. My family taught me to love Fidel all the time. I have seen him as a teacher. He taught us many things, notably human dignity.

“He taught us solidarity. In my opinion, Fidel had the highest human values that a human being can reach. He was an example for me. To put it in a few words; he was revolution, human dignity, teacher and example,” continued the Cuban diplomat.

Among complimentary remarks coming not only from the friends of Fidel and the Cuban Revolution in the world but also from his enemies, answering the question how Fidel could earn the respect of his enemies, Alberto Gonzalez Casals says, “Most people respect him by virtue of his courage and values, particularly the sense of justice. No one can deny his struggle against poverty and his efforts for international solidarity.”

“For example,” says Casals, “Fidel mobilized health labourers for solidarity in the entire world. Moreover, his moves inspired ‘health brigades’ in other countries. Besides, all people agree on Fidel’s honesty. One of the legacies he left to us: revolution would never lie. The Cuban State, too, was constructed on this honesty from top to bottom.”

‘HE SENT DOCTORS WHEN OTHERS SENT GUNS’

Casals says, “even Fidel’s enemies accepted that because human values are in question. That is why I believe Fidel was a world leader.”

“Fidel has met the peoples of the countries he visited throughout his life. Despite deep concerns since he survived over 600 assassination attempts, he always found a way of meeting the peoples. At one time a statesman who did not develop a friendly attitude towards Fidel, said: “He sent doctors to the complicated regions of the world, while other countries were sending guns.

Finally, Fidel never surrendered to any power. And this made him a unique leader both in the history of Cuba and the world,” continued Casals.

CUBA AFTER FIDEL

Considering that Cuba and the Communist Party of Cuba made preparations for a “Cuba without Fidel”, and that US President-elect Trump sees this as an opportunity for a capitalist restoration in Cuba, regarding the question on the position of Cuba after Fidel, Casals says, “We need to make a distinction between those who have sincere anticipations about the changes in Cuba and those who have a hostile approach to Cuba.”

“Frankly speaking, we wonder whether those have such concerns know Cuba very well or not. Cuba would abandon socialism only if we betrayed Fidel’s ideas. Fidel taught some values. However, it should be known that we would not surrender.

We lived through deep crises and economic challenges. Despite the fact that we lost many lives and comrades during the revolutionary period, we survived.

We, honestly, think that we will stick to Fidel’s ideas after we have lost him, that we will create a new ideological and political mobilization, and that we will be much more assertive in building socialism against imperialism,” continued the Cuban diplomat.

‘WE ARE READY TO RESIST THE US FOR ANOTHER 50 YEARS’

“We have been organizing this period [Cuba without Fidel] recently. Our biggest aim is to maintain socialism and our political/ideological line in Cuba. We are accustomed to imperialists’ approach. They want to make the people believe that a period will be over with deaths of significant figures. That will not happen to Cuba,” says Alberto Gonzalez Casals and adds:

“Because our tradition dates back to pre-revolutionary period. They thought that this struggle would have ended when our leaders were killed during the independency war of Cuba against Spain. They thought so when they murdered José Martí. Yet, they could not stop the fight for revolution and independency in Cuba.

We witnessed the death of the founder of the Communist Party of Cuba. Our comrades died during the revolution, and we lost such leaders as Camilo and Che after the revolution. However, the revolution continued.

Of course Fidel is so unique that the Cuban people and the world are mourning for him. But what he taught us was “to continue”.

When he started the struggle against Batista’s dictatorship, they were 82 in the Granma yacht and only 12 could survive. However, Fidel said at that moment, “Alright, we will accomplish the revolution”. What Fidel taught us is this idea and soul.

As for the US, we have had consistency on this issue. We have always wanted normal relations with the US providing that they respect our sovereignty and our assertiveness to build socialism. We hope that the US maintains positive relations with Cuba. Otherwise, we are ready to resist for yet another 50 years,” concluded the Cuban Ambassador Alberto Gonzales Casals.

Communist Party: This is a dissolution in mass

The attacks of the AKP are not slowing down: Academia, the Daily Cumhuriyet and the HDP…

The Communist Party – Turkey released a statement about the recent jailings of the pro-Kurdish MPs. The statement underscores the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government has to keep attacking to sustain its dissolving power.

This is a dissolution in mass

In today’s statement made by the Prime Ministry and directed to foreign press on the ongoing operation against several MPs of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), it was clear the Turkish government was trying to find a pretext for this operation. According to the statement, their being taken into custody like that was a normal procedure since they did not appear in court to give testimony!

The day before the Minister of Justice could only say “bad luck” after it was revealed that the prosecutor assigned to the Daily Cumhuriyet case was also under investigation for being a Gülenist.

It is not possible either to find any reasonable explanation for the AKP’s attacks to academia. Elections of university presidents were already an accessory created by the military regime established after the military coup on September 12, 1980. Even such an accessory was too much for the AKP regime.

At the core of these attacks lies the fact that the AKP has no other choice than suppressing every segment of the society. If they stepped back even a little, the power mechanisms that they can hardly hold together, i.e. the state apparatus, economy, profits of the capitalist class, the armed forces they sent to the Middle East and even their own political party would certainly collapse as a whole.

The AKP is not gaining any strength by attacking. It is just postponing the inevitable.

The Communist Party condemns the ongoing repressive practices as in the recent case of the HDP deputies and is in solidarity with those who are victimized, sacked, disentitled and restrained from doing their job under the pretext of the July 15 coup attempt although they have nothing to with the Gülenist sect.

On the other hand, this course of events also signals the dissolution of the line of opposition which has adopted a compromising stance against the dictatorship of the AKP. It is also a fact that neo-nationalists has been trying to get rid of their liberal competitors for an alliance with the AKP, by forwarding their complains to the AKP, while fascist and reactionist policies have been openly carried out. The main opposition party assumes that complaining about the unlawful purge in the public sector means a serious method of struggle against AKP. Then the question if they really oppose to anything becomes legitimate especially when the puppets appointed by the government to serve as substitutes for the elected mayors are unanimously accepted by the elected city councils. In a country where city councils accepted and tolerated appointment of trustees, it has also become possible to form a constitutional committee within the Grand National Assembly. Those who champion democracy can present their shows in the filthy lobbies of imperialist diplomacy as a struggle. All of them wait for an invitation from liberal/mainstream media channels that have been long known to be submitted to Erdoğan to demonstrate their opposition to the AKP. All of these are in dissolution.

What is happening in Turkey today coincides with a period in which the contradictions within the imperialist-capitalist system have sharpened to the utmost. It is not possible to discuss the actions of the AKP’without putting these contradictions at the center. It must be known that any “opposition” that blossomed out of any capitalist group or any imperialist power is a betrayal against the people of this country and gives the ruling party the opportunity to justify its actions. The same thing can be said about bombings terrorizing every inch of the public life.

This system demolishes the institution of politics in the mass.

The Communist Party calls workers, academics, the press workers who live on their labors to detach themselves from this rotten system.

For the time being the AKP seems to have the power to attack. However, it is not attacking because it is powerful, but because it has to. This road leads to nowhere. This kind of dead end that the system is approaching is an open invitation for our working people.

If Lenin comes to town

lenin_4

In 1991, with the collapse of Soviet Union, some Lenin and Stalin monuments and statues or busts were removed from their places and some of them were sent to trash. One Lenin bust(wooden) had come to Bolu city, Akcakoca town, Turkey, so come ashore. Obviously, his bust had similar features with Lenin. Becuase it is not easy to pass over Black Sea! Normally a good swimmer cannot swim over Black Sea along.

routes-of-lenin-bust
Possible routes of Lenin bust over Black Sea:)

According to the newspaper archives on the net, those days in 1991, this event had been news at world public. Even diplomatic traffic experienced between Turkey and Russia, on what will be the future of this bust. And they decided Lenin bust could stay in it’s new home, Bolu, Akcakoca.

During these passing years, Lenin bust stayed in municipal storehouse of Akcakoca. In 2009, the mayor of that period had said that they will exhibit the bust. But it stay in the storehouse still.

Yesterday about this subject, there was a new news. Turkish writer Baris Bicakci and director Tufan Tastan announced that they have written a screenplay about Lenin bust story (kind of black humor) and shooting movie will start for the coming days. The name of movie: “You, me, Lenin”.

According to story of movie, when the Lenin statue is put at the town square, the lives of villagers are changing. I cannot imagine how conservative people can live with Lenin bust. This movie is probably satire story 🙂 In fact maybe with this way, the unfinished story of the Lenin bust would be completed.

The other side, when I heard this news in first time, I remembered the Underwater Museum at Cape Tarkhankut, Crimea. (While I was saying “remembered”, I didn’t see the museum, I remember its pictures:)) There is a valley at the underwater museum, “leaders valley”. Another Lenin statue also is at there.

I am wondering, if Lenin wooden bust at Turkey passed near by the Lenin statue at underwater museum, while it was coming to Turkey. What did they say to each other? I don’t know, sad story, maybe they said with each other “goodbye Lenin”; I don’t know.

Do Not Yield to Religious Fundamentalism, Imperialism and Military Coups

kp-logo_0

…Communist Party, Turkey (KP), a number of politicians, trade union leaders, intellectuals including Kemal Okuyan, the First Secretary of the Central Committee of KP, have signed a call to make a mass demonstration again in Istanbul, on September 4, 2016 under the title, ‘Do Not Yield to Religious Fundamentalism, Imperialism and Coups’.

With International Bulletins, the International Relations Bureau of the Communist Party, Turkey, shall continue to provide information on the latest developments in Turkey as well as the news about the demonstration on September, 4th.

Below you may find the manifesto of the call for September 4th.

Do Not Yield to Religious Fundamentalism, Imperialism and Military Coups 

In the aftermath of the July 15, the US-backed military coup attempt of the reactionary forces, we who shall meet in the demonstration on September 4, 2016 shout out loud that we will not yield to religious fundamentalism, imperialism and coup plotting. The current developments that drag our country to the threshold of destruction are directly related with the conscious policy of the imperialist and capital forces to bury Turkey into obscurantism. In this perspective:

1) Behind both the strengthening of the coup plotters,the religious sect of the Gulenists,  and the long hegemony of the obscurant power that consciously created the base that supported the above strengthening, lies the assaultive project of imperialism, the so-called moderate Islam. This project which has no other aim than hypnotizing and suppressing the peoples of the world has to be questioned in total and the ones who are responsible should be exposed and purged.

2) The public officials who use religion and religious principles or link somehow their actions to religion when in duty, are conducting a constitutional crime. Whatever their position, minister or mukhtar (neighbourhood representative), they should be punished; the individuals who use the excuse of ‘behaving according to religion’ should be dismissed from their duties and put on trial.

3) Turkey as a secular country does not need an institution that gives fetwas. The Directorate of Religious Affairs should be closed.

4) As a result of an insidious operation the religious Imam Hatip Schools are put in the centre of our educational system. This is a part of the project to create an Islamic State and actually with the latest developments, this project has hit a wall once more. Turkey has more Imams than needed, the redundant Imam Hatip Schools should be closed and the educational system should be planned on scientific and secular bases.

5) The religious sects and cults that strive to root out secularism are dark organizations nesting within the State and insidiously getting spread just like a dusty spider web. Not only the Gulen movement but all the religious sects and cults should be damned, prosecuted and purged.

6) The political and military networks of imperialism in the pass of the years are responsible for insidiously dragging our country to the threshold of disaster and, as in all coups, have played role in the coup of July 15. Turkey should leave NATO and the European Union membership process should be ended.

7) All the US and NATO bases should be seized. All nuclear weapons in Turkey and primarily in Incirlik base, one of the biggest nuclear weapon stores in the world which is designed as an explosive mine ready to erase our country from the map, should be disarmed.

8) All government officials who supported the armed jihadist forces in our neighbour country Syria, intervened in the internal affairs of this country and played major role in bringing the country in the threshold of destruction, have to be adjudicated.

9) Making available the benefits of the public sources to some individuals, arbitrarily distributing the public sources as part of incentive policies, openly plundering the facilities, institutions and foundations that in the past were in the use of the public benefit are the most significant stations in the route that dragged our country into the bog. Plunder and injustice does not only refer to the wealth of the ascertained companies and administrators of the Gulenist movement. All the domestic and foreign connections in the unjust enrichment of the enemies of the people, the plunder and theft should be inquired; the ones that backed each other while plundering the country should be called to account. The plundering network in which until the very near future there was collaboration for common political interests but in which now a politician can blame the administrator of the capital city of the country for being responsible for the plundering of half of the parcels of Ankara, has to be crumbled.

10) The statement that declares that the Fethullah movement was constituted with the decision of CIA by the hand of MIT (National Intelligence Organization) at the house of one of the richest capitalist families in Turkey, has to be inquired.

11) The abolishment of death penalty is one of the most significant and irrevocable historical gains in the history of Turkey, regarding both its political and humanistic dimensions. Using the coup attempt as an excuse to bring back the death penalty is unacceptable.

12) The oppression in the public services should be ended, unnecessary dismissals should be invalidated. Flouting the principle of judicial independence, the political practice of arbitrarily setting up pro-government cadres in public services, should be ceased.

13) The coup plotters that made the decision of a slaughter and gave instructions in this order should be uncovered with its proofs.

14) The reactionary gangs that spread terror in the streets giving the image of suppressing the coup, the ones that armed them, encouraged them and used torture should be ascertained and punished. It is very clear that these masses are not gathered together instantaneously for the sake of democracy but are so organized that they can make their own coup.

15)  Openly using the excuse of the coup in the wind of ‘national consensus’, the anti-popular and pro-capitalist regulations are coming one after the other. The legislative decrees and bag laws that impose the privatization programs and the looting individual pension system, should be annulled.

16)  The AKP government cannot pay the account with a mere apology for dragging the country into this condition in 14 years. Starting long years before, the Gulenist movement has undertaken dirty missions in several decades, while in the AKP rule had become a partner of the government, clearly, in an anti-constitutional way. Inquiring these years in total and specifically inquiring the actions of the AKP governments during these years and eliminating the results of the anti-popular practices are prerequisites of a real confrontation. Expecting us to believe that a religious sect is responsible for all the mess and its purge shall detoxify the state and the society, allowing the government to reinforce its power this time relying on some other religious sects, means accepting the truth of a new reactionary coup.
