This war against fascism was not easy, and success of Soviets at war has been trying to be ignored by European governments for last decades.
The following quotes from Kemal Okuyan, Member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Turkey, today’s article from SoL.org:
“The US and the UK were no more innocent than Hitler Germany in imperialist competition. Nevertheless, these two imperialist countries were making unmatched maneuvers to save themselves from the responsibility of war resulting in the bloodshed of the Soviet peoples, in which they were using a “libertarian” intelligence which had neither a backbone nor a memory. We made a mistake, it was necessary to keep the sins of the United States and Britain on the agenda constantly, but when this wasn’t made, the Soviets and Nazi Germany, plus Stalin and Hitler have been became identified in same impertinence area.
During the war, the alliance between the Soviets and the United States&Britain was so temporary as imperative as for all three. It was completely rotten, because the alliance was class-based mixed. The ideology of the Alliance was absent because of the existence of opposing ideologies. The Alliance could not agree on the definition of the enemy. It was not true that between 1941 and 1945 a “front of democracy” was established against fascism. A wing of western imperialism defended its own interests, the Soviet Union itself and humanity. It was the Soviet Union that held the promises of the war for four years as well as the war, and conformed to the rules of morality and diplomacy in relation to its allies. Before the end of the war, before Germany surrendered, that were the United States and the United Kingdom, which started a new war (it doesn’t matter cold or hot). We allowed this fact to be forgotten. With this, the lie that the Soviet Union represented authoritarian and the US represents a libertarian world, grew day by day.”
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.
This kid, yesterday after the Portugal-France final match of Euro Cup 2016, he consoled the French fan while he was crying. It is so beautiful behavior, and I want to thank to this kid from here! He left his happiness in a moment and he thought to console the opposing team’s fan. And with this behavior, he showed me there is still hope for this planet!
I am losing my trust to humankind sometimes, but this scene caused to gain my trust back again. Maybe we don’t need too much thing to believe or trust, maybe we don’t need to look at the far away points. Here it is, this kid wrote just in 30 seconds how humanity should be, without the need to write hundreds pages of book about this.
Also, there were many scene we have seen in Euro 2016. If I started from last match, a moth have made a show. 🙂 This moth landed to Ronaldo’s eyelash, while he was in suffer. After Ronaldo injured this moth showed itself, and maybe it wanted to be a super hero moth 🙂 I have no idea why it made this show, but it was incredible!
I think one of the most interesting football player has been Ricardo Quaresma who is a football player in Besiktas team in Turkey and Portugal National Team at Euro Cup 1016. He is really good midfield player and forvet, but I am not sure how can he make many goals while he is playing in midfield, maybe he is kind of midfiled-forvet mix:) He showed himself with enjoyable play and the olive leaf at his head on final match of Euro 2016. It is being said this leaf is their national symbol. Maybe it is I don’t know, I only know Turkish’s and Greek’s olive:) But this leaf seemed very cool, no doubt!
When these were living into the football field at final match yesterday, French police was spraying the pepper gas to the French people out of the football field. After 6 pm the French police sprayed the pepper spray to the football fans at Fan Zone, because of they claimed that the enterence to the Fan Zone is forbidden after 6 pm.
If you don’t have money or you couldn’t find a ticket you can meet with pepper spray! This is another kind of rule of this system. And I don’t know have you ever tasted the pepper spray, my Earthling friends. It is painfull according to my experiences and, highly no recommended by me! 🙂
If I turned back into Euro Cup, we have seen many ugly things besides the good things. Especially, the war between British and Russian fans in Marseille, or British fans who threw coins to the refugees children. Yes, we had seen at March, PSV Eindhoven fans had made similar humiliation to the Gypsy children at Champions League.
And very first time at their history , North Ireland joined to Euro Cup in this year. And their opposite team had been Ukraine for a match. While the match was playing on field, the Ukranian fascists were showed their Nazi tattoos on tribunes. And these tattoos weren’t be usefull again, because Ukraine defeated with 2 goals by North Ireland 🙂
I started to my post with very beatiful kid. And I want to finish this post with very beatiful football team. This team is National Football Team of Iceland. They gave joy to all of us when they played their football game at Euro 2016. We have learnt and seen Iceland team in very first time. They were incredible! Even not only with their game, for example we learnt how we can call the whales? Yes 🙂 While the football team was on field the fans of Iceland on tribunes chanted this way:
After these scenes, we learnt that this ovation was made by Icelanders to call the whales. Very interesting! The team of Iceland with their good football, they came to the quarterfinals of Euro 2016. This is very big success for a team which joins first time at Cup. And the Iceland people met their team with ceremony when the team turned back motherland, and of course with whale call 🙂 Here it is:
At this video it is written “Viking war chant” as tittle. But I am very sure this chant meaning is firstly “to call whales”. Maybe this can be another mean or RT video makers made wrong.
Also, I’ve watched a video on youtube about Iceland football team, and a man was saying that: “We don’t have an army, if we go the war, we would easily be defeated. This is kind of army for us.”
Icelanders, I think you should be proud of yourself, if you don’t have army. This meaning is you are very peaceful people. Please you build your army over the sport or other good things. We loved you with this kind of army! And, thank you to Icelanders, because you showed us the soul of Vikings 🙂
Tay, an artificial intelligence software which developed by Microsoft, started to curse and make racist and controversial politic comments on Twitter. Tay’s about page at on its web page of the company the explanation is:
“Tay is an artificial intelligent chat bot developed by Microsoft’s Technology and Research and Bing teams to experiment with and conduct research on conversational understanding. Tay is designed to engage and entertain people where they connect with each other online through casual and playful conversation. The more you chat with Tay the smarter she gets, so the experience can be more personalized for you.”
But, Tay didn’t get smarter, because of the human factor.
After then Microsoft started to delete these tweets of Tay on twitter. Right now, there is no any tweet like that, but the screen shot of Tay’s tweets were taken by twitter’s followers, here is some of them:
And, an emailed statement from a Microsoft representative said, “a coordinated attack by a subset of people exploited a vulnerability in Tay.”
The human factor has turned Tay into a wierd creature in a day.
And it caught my attention, the most important question hasn’t asked to Tay on twitter. You know, Atlas which was created by Boston Dynamics has been kicked by a man. I made a post about Atlas,title “Atlas is learning the mentality of humankind” . If I had a twitter account I would asked to Tay by adding Atlas’s beating video to my tweet:
“What do you think about Atlas which is the same of your kind, has been kicked by a human?”
If anyone would ask this question, let me know Tay’s answer. This would be view of AI for human race.
This song of resistance is being made and released by pash based on the struggle of students in India. Students of JNU, HU and many other universities in India have spoken out against the anti-dalit and anti-student fascist tendencies of Modi government.
Bertolt Brecht, is described as German poet, playwright and theater director. His works are recognized and rewarded with respect for internationally. He is the founder of “dialectical theater”. Brecht is defined himself as “communist”.
Here, some of his works,
I see the system. Its surface
Has long been known, but not the inner workings.
I see some people, a few on top and many down below,
and those on top shout down to those below: Come up, then all
of us will be on top.
But if you look closely
You’ll see a hidden something
Between the ones on top and those below.
It looks like a path, but no, it’s not a path.
More like a plank, and now you see it plainly,
it’s a seesaw. That’s it. This whole.
System’s a seesaw with two ends
Depending on each other.
Those on top are where they are because the others
are down below.
And they will stay up top only so long as the others stay down.
They’d be on top no longer if the others, leaving their
old place, came up.
And so it is that those on top inevitably want those below to
stay there for all eternity and never rise.
And anyway, there have to be more people down below
than up on top to keep the seesaw in position,
that’s why the whole system is a seesaw.
One of the quote from his opinions about capitalism and fascism:
“Those who are against fascism without being against capitalism, who lament over the barbarism that comes out of barbarism, are like people who wish to eat their veal without slaughtering the calf. They are willing to eat the calf, but they dislike the sight of blood. They are easily satisfied if the butcher washes his hands before weighing the meat. They are not against the property relations which engender barbarism; they are only against barbarism itself. They raise their voices against barbarism, and they do so in countries where precisely the same property relations prevail, but where the butchers wash their hands before weighing the meat.”
A Worker’s Speech to a Doctor…
We know what makes us ill.
When we’re ill word says
You’re the one to make us well
For ten years, so we hear
You learned how to heal in elegant schools
Built at the people’s expense
And to get your knowledge
Dispensed a fortune
That means you can make us well.
Can you make us well?
When we visit you
Our clothes are ripped and torn
And you listen all over our naked body.
As to the cause of our illness
A glance at our rags would be more
Revealing. One and the same cause wears out
Our bodies and our clothes.
The pain in our shoulder comes
You say, from the damp; and this is also the cause
Of the patch on the apartment wall.
So tell us then:
Where does the damp come from?
Too much work and too little food
Make us weak and scrawny.
Your prescription says:
Put on more weight.
You might as well tell a fish
Go climb a tree
How much time can you give us?
We see: one carpet in your flat costs
The fees you take from
Five thousand consultations
You’ll no doubt protest
Your innocence. The damp patch
On the wall of our apartments
Tells the same story.
Another quote of his opinions:
“injustice does not justify, if those who fought against them have fallen down.
because our defeat, only proves of the our numbers of fighting against dishonor, only it proves we’re few in number..
and we expect from the remaining who stayed in quiet,
they should feel ashamed.”
And the last one;
“Who didn’t unite against the fascism, they would meet in the dungeon of fascism.”
While I was examining this great human being, I’ve realized Brecht’s works made me feel very rebellious and kind of stormy in Turkish and in Russian. I guess this was about my English lack. And, I am wondering if I knew the German language, what would I feel?:)
Tonight, the new “internal security” laws, which are wanted by AKP’s insist but the all opposition parties are opposed, were discussed at Turkish Grand National Assembly. In the congress, AKP deputies have attacked the other parties deputies with hammer.
These national security laws, if they can bring, are going to bring incredible pressure to the public. And interestingly way, even HDP(Kurdish nationalist party) and MHP(Turkish nationalist party) are in same thought about these laws.
All Turkey, bar association, medical units, doctors and the others, workers, students, almost everyone has been in the streets meeting for days, at the moment when they heard this new security laws. However, we know that, mainstream media on this planet doesn’t know anything again. Turkey is an interesting country. If you look outside to this country, you might think that this country is consist of the AKP and the people in its line. I thought before like this. But it is not.
There is a very wrong electoral system in Turkey. After the 1980, Turkey military coup, which United States is behind and support, a limit on the election figures has been determined. If any party does not get the %10 vote in all Turkey, it is not able to represent in the National Assembly. This is caused, normally 30% of the votes of the AKP, as represented in parliament in the rate of 45-50% in an unfair manner.
Putting the pressure on at least 65% population by minority is experienced for 12 years. People are being poorer day by day. Justice mechanism no longer doesn’t work. Every rules work for the AKP. This country seems like a boiler anymore. What happens if you put continuous wood below a simmering the boiler? Here, Turkey is waiting, getting angry day by day. Turkey is really important country because of it is secular republic, mostly muslim country. If there are so many games over this country because of this. People can not see actually, if Turkey loses its secular republic structure, this planet turns upside down again, just look at history, but anyway…this is another subject. And tonight, after the young woman Özgecan Aslan murdered savagely, AKP deputies hit with hammer to a HDP woman deputy.
Yesterday they shed crocodile tears, firstly Recap Tayyip Erdogan, which is he is president now, but he acts still AKP party leader and the other deputies. 5 deputies have injured,(in CHP and HDP) at that times, AKP insisted to the laws discuss, when these deputies were in the infirmary.
The signal cutting tools were put to parliament, not broadcasting by the national parliament. So my Earthling friends, these measures were taken because of anyone shouldn’t learn the events in parliament. Those, who made to this to deputies under the National Assembly roof in today, who knows what make to the public tomorrow. No one’s safety is no longer in this country! Congratulations United States and British imperialism! You can make proud your self with your performance-work anymore!
