You believe in humanity, the good times will come, goodness and Socialism!

One of Communist Party’s posters about November 1 elections; Translation in English: You believe in humanity, the good times will come, goodness and Socialism! “Evet” means “yes” for voting.

A week before November 1 elections in Turkey, the representatives of Turkey’s political parties started to make own party speech in official state television TRT. The majority part of speech of the representative of Communist Party which was made yesterday evening as follows.

The bloodbath that we were pushed into and what we live in nowadays, are the political style of capital layout and imperialism. Unless this order does not change, both peace and war will be shaped in bloody politics and in large massacres which is public enemy. For brotherhood, for peace, for unity this layout must be changed. This is the way.

Disbelief, despair, indecision and cowardice have no place in the future of humanity. Our country is going to 2015 November elections with an insane. The part of the country is almost worshiped to him. He has became the partner of murderers, war crimes, gave orders, weapons, approval to these. But still, his support does never decrease easily.

Another part of the country is considering that everything in the country was made by him. While dealing with taking out the stone that he threw into the well(*), they believe he is a very strong and it needs to do whatever it takes to get rid of him. The problem is not that we cannot deal with an insane. The main problem is the people lost their belief about that the country needs the layout change and this is possible and even must.

The people who lost their belief in intelligence, enlightenment, equality have handed this country in to the bigotry. As we Communist Party, we can not come out of an affair by picking up the cost of the problems we had, to the other politicians. But we will highlight insistently the portion of the politics “so called, side by side with the people” inside what we lived.

The problem is CHP which sentenced itself to public opposition. We cannot forget the faults of this constructive opposition organization which kept the millions away from the idea of layout change for a long time. This party, even if our working people show regardless to it, it is a capital party. The opposition way that it has choosen as “constructive and soft” and not baiting of capital, imperialist centers, has worked up both AKP and the dictator of its head. While CHP was saying “hijab expansion, mufti candidates, relationship with religious sect”, we thought that “CHP cannot sheer more than this anymore”, but again it could confront of the public who binding own hopes with MHP’s presidential candidates. CHP which is watching subcontracting, privatizations, concessions that made to capital, it has succeeded to give more damage by own municipalities with the politics of worker’ enemy. This party needs a good lesson. The people opposition in this country needs to be rescued from the hands of layout and capital parties. That’s why, from another angle the problem is that we couldn’t tell to the public that how much important a strong Communist Party we need.

The problem is HDP which is looking for a solution about the Kurdish issue on the negotiation with the powers of layout. The Kurdish politicians who showed that the working class movement hadn’t been able to exert own power as reason for their position, they can say “there are no socialists, communist around here, and we are looking for the solution with AKP and TUSIAD” (Turkey Industrialists and Businessmen’s Association, also is known as Bosses Club by public)

However HDP which cannot tolerate even the existence of anti-layout political movement out side itself, it determines own partners by own. While HDP is fighting and negotiating with AKP at same time, at the other hand HDP is proceeding on the negotiating table with NATO and USA.

That’s why, Communist Party should be strengthened. The communists who will solve the problem should reach a power that Kurdish issue won’t leave to the mercy of both the fascists who said “hit and get rid of” and the liberals who said “give and get rid of”.

Both sides is using the sentence of “Mothers don’t cry anymore” as being a wish or propaganda. If Communist Party will be strengthened, this will be over.

The problem is inside us, but the solution is in our hands. We have to believe in our own strength. We should know that this power can change the country.

In the heart of Middle East, in the war geography, the though that the war is provoked by an insane and he started the war inside and outside to rescue himself, is wrong. It needs to see the imperialism, international reactionism and how the publics were surrendered to them and needs to know the source of bloody war tunnel are these. In our region, if Communist Parties would be strengthened, and if they can lead to Turk, Kurd, Arabic, Greek, Caucasian and Balkan people, this bloody chaos could be ended.

All sorts of nationalist parties, ethnic movements, proponents of imperialism, the parties of money patrons have to be isolated. Is it possible to not seeing the work accidents, over exploitation, poverty? Or murders of women and deep injustice? All these were created by the exploitation layout which has to be changed and must fall down; also this system created that an insane who walks around like “cocky as the king of spades”. As long as this layout continues, an insane gone, another one would come. However, the fear of change of layout will align the rotten structures and even the dictators.

Communist Party of Turkey says that,

Our intellectuals, our young people, our workers shouldn’t seek the future at the rotten structures and at the parliament which turned into a historical lie already. The ones which will change the layout and will bring the equality and freedom country, is this country’s Communist Party. All other recommendations, it only reinforces the layout. In these circumstances, can we say “AKP does not go, at least it should be coalition”!

The bloody politics of capital is based on intimidation, blackmail and the bloodshed. To manage by releasing fear with exploded bombs is their business. It’s not just the AKP, the national and international evilness power elites wash people’s brains with blood to persuade to lesser of two evils. When the people who were terrified are hugging the ballot box, this situation suits everyone’s book. In 2015’s Turkey, we think we should start by getting rid of these liar savers.
In June 2013, there was a public who went out the streets without long calculations. That people was the public which burned own bridge with the layout and not care about AKP’s statements “will of the people, the majority of the polls”. No one never thought “when the election comes, we give our votes and if we take a lot of vote we would win,” while were yelling “goverment resign!” at the squares at that time. In today’s there is the thought about account which coalition would better and can not breathe in the mind of public.

It needs to settle accounts with reactionism and defeat it. The reactionism cannot be turned back one or two step. Because of that the reactionary party falls down over absolute power, and it turn into coalition, the bigotry cannot be defeated. The Communist Party says that the first necessary is a strengthened revolutionary party to overcome the bigotry. Voting to Communist Party means that strengthen this commitment. Today, there is a new fear wave which spreads to the country before the 1 November elections: fascism.

How will we stop this fascism with CHP which couldn’t say “we don’t belong to this parliament, this parliament is not the public parliament anymore, it is the parliament of bullies” when the fists began to speak at parliamentary commision and the attorneys were attacked by AKP deputies.

There is also HDP. How will we stop this fascism with HDP which has got only strategy that to force AKP and Erdogan to make a constitution with them almost during last ten years?

Can we stop this fascism with HDP which has been greatest support of AKP’s democracy demagogy “solution process”, even supported AKP with negotiates which made behind the doors all time; really!

Since 2002, Communists have got one policy in all elections they joined as party: What we said during the election period, we established our struggle over it both before the elections and after the elections. Turkey’s Communists entered in 2002 elections with challenging to the reign of money. We said that “We are here!”. If there is reign of money, the only public struggle against it is the Communist Party. That day we said this, today we say still.

While we have been fighting with the bigots who admire the reign and Ottomans, we have never forgotten our promise. One land lord goes, Tayyip sultan would come. Even if sultans change, the reign is always the same: the reign of money. There is no place to the lords, sultans or generals in our government. But our real fight is with the reign of money. We do have a lesson which we will give to the bosses and rich exploiters team who are the source of hunger and poverty and cause of the darkness and bigotry.

Those who have forgotten the first rule of leftism are the kind of leftists who consider TUSIAD as charity organization which approaches to Kurdish issue in moderate or who consider Soros is cute old man who uses his money to bring the democracy to the world. We are Communists. And we will destroy the reign of money.

Communist Party of Turkey which was founded in September 10, 1920, we are going to elections 95th years of ours.

And we say that “We have made our choice.”

You make you choice. You choose the Communist Party’s organizations which is spreading throughout the country; not factitious deputies who will be brought to the parliament.

You believe in humanity, the good days will come, goodness and Socialism!

The last regret

“The last regret” written by Kemal Okuyan

“Do you regret?” they ask.

Because of,

we row against the tide,

we show determination to walk alone the way we know as right,

we expose attempts of renewing of AKP regime with the different actors,

we say “nothing changes with the election; this order have to be changed; for changing of this order, organized fight should be increased”,

we act with the thought “there is no break or holiday in socialism fight”,

we defend secularism, we resist against Saidi Nursi bragging and religious obscurantism,

we warn to our friends and the working people about politic engineering which has the international forces and the capitalist class behind its,

we lay weight on “there would not be benefit for us from a revolutionary which is not questioning to capital order”,

we carry the interests of working people to the election platform, despite hundreds of pressures, swearing, mobbing, insulting,

we stand against the false dreams which will cause to convict the people of apolitism and thoroughly intimidation,

we remind NATO, European Union and we say “once, the meaning of left was to be against imperialism”,

we speak out the truths, no matter how much they depressing,

we don’t lose the hope in any case, all circumstances,

Do we regret?

What were Gauls saying: “Romans must be crazy!”

We don’t express our revolutionary goals and principles with figures. Before the election, ones called “opportunism” to our decision which was to be join to the election as being Communist Party.

“We are taking great risks,” we replied. Because we showed an almost impossible attitude which would not have turned into the vote in these conditions.

We do not regret it because of we took the risks. It is worth it. We write down to the mind and heart of many friends, not only history; we are organized.

Yes, we have not regret it in election night, when the number of votes at the ballot box for socialism were announced; as we have said before, we set to work.

And you?
