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…”

When the clocks show 09:05 on the 10th of November

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk died at 9:05 on 10th of November, 1938. This year is the 78. commemorating year of him.

“Ataturk” word is compound word. It comprises of two word “Ata” and “Turk”. Ata word meaning is “father-ancestor” in Turkish. Ataturk is the surname of Mustafa Kemal. Also, any one cannot be named with Ataturk name except Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. This was framed by the act of law on constitution of Turkey Republic in 1934.

English translation of the writings on upper video

His only thought was about the Republic of Turkey

He loved the most this country more than anything

For the ones, he was soldier

For the ones, he was genius

For us, he is ATATURK

He never GAVE UP

He was never tired of STRUGGLE

Even if the sentence of death* for him, couldn’t make him stop

On the 78th anniversary of his physical death,

We miss him more then ever.

Veteran Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of Republic of Turkey, eternal leader, chief commander of all time,

We follow in his footsteps.

*The sentence of death for him had been given by last Ottoman Sultan Vahdettin in 1920 before Vahdettin run away from country with British war ship.

The picture at the video is Anitkabir, the memorial tomb of Ataturk and museum in Ankara. Every year many people visit Anitkabir; not only on November 10, they visit on the other national days like October 29.

Every year many people of Turkey pay tribute to Mustafa Kemal Ataturk at the 09:05 on 10th of November. The alarms are being given with sirens, people are standing up, the cars are being stopped, and the people are in a moment of silence for rememberence of him. This ambiance has not changed last 78 years.

This scene has been taken in Istanbul. Also you can see this scene in many city of Turkey in same day, in same moment on every year, when the clocks show 09:05 on every 10th of November.

With all my respect…
