WE ARE NOT ONLY 120 PEOPLE, BUT MILLIONS!
YOU CAN’T BREAK THE PEOPLE’S FRONT!
THE VICTORY IS OURS!
Policies aimed at forcing the people and revolutionaries to capitulate, pursued by the imperialism’s lackey fascist AKP(the ruling party in Turkey, headed by president R.T. Erdogan), failed. The policy of imperialism by isolating the revolutionaries from the masses and terrorizing them collapsed before the members of the People’s Front, who fight and resist regardless of the conditions in which they were placed.
The policy of imperialism for reconciliation, capitulation, and liquidation directed to all peoples of the world, against the revolutionary and progressive organizations, is invalid before the members of the PeopleFront, who from the battle of Kızeldere in 1972 to the Death Fast in 1984, from the battle of July 12, 1991, to the Death Fast in 1996, from the battle of Çiftehavuzlar to the Great Resistance 2000-2007, from the shootout in Çağlayan in 2015 to the Death Fast in 2019-2020, with their irreconcilable position against imperialism and fascism, are fighting and resisting, and create new epic examples of resistance and victory! The victory is ours!
The fascist rule of the AKP continues to show its true face as an enemy of the people. On October 28, 2020, an attack on the people and revolutionaries began throughout Turkey. Hordes of fascist murderers and executioners began to abduct revolutionaries from the streets and raid their homes. Through the bourgeois media, the fascist power stated that there are arrest warrants for 120 people, the news was announced under the headline “Operation in 12 provinces against the illegal organization DHKP-C”.
To date, nearly 100 members and supporters of the People’s Front have been detained. Although taken captives, our comrades, with their slogans of resistance and victory, continue to denounce how helpless and miserable fascism is.
WE ARE NOT ONLY 120 PEOPLE, BUT MILLIONS! WE ARE THE PEOPLE!
THE FASCIST POWER OF THE AKP CANNOT BREAK 80 MILLION PEOPLE!
The fascist power of the AKP has been attacking for more than 4 years. It detains, kidnaps from the streets, tortures, kills.
Because they are afraid. The crisis of imperialism in our country is growing, with mothers and fathers who set themselves on fire from hunger and unemployment, who commit suicide because they cannot buy their pants for their children. The anger of the people grows, finding expression in the words “Give my father’s salary, he deserved it with his work!”, Uttered at a workers’ protest by a child of a worker.
They are afraid. Because imperialism means CRISIS. Our country is a neo-colonial state dependent on imperialism, ruled by fascism.
They are afraid. Of the millions who want their jobs back. Of the millions who stand at the gates of their palaces and shout “We are hungry!” They are afraid of the people fighting in the squares, who are making sit-in protests and hunger strikes, from the peasants, who are waving their fingers at the commanders of the gendarmerie, without being afraid of them. They are afraid of the brave children of our people, who are organizing in the slums.
The reason for the attack of the fascist power of the AKP is its FEAR FROM THE PEOPLE. This is proof of the helplessness and powerlessness of the fascist terror. Attacks aimed at capitulation and liquidation are in vain. The policies of capitulation and annihilation of the revolutionaries pursued by the fascist power of the AKP are invalid before the members of the People’s Front, who resist regardless of the conditions in which they are placed.
WE RESISTED AND WON! THE IDEOLOGICAL AND POLITICAL VICTORY IS OURS!
THE ATTACK OF THE FASCIST AKP IS PROVOKED BY ITS IMPOSSIBILITY TO RECONCILE OUR VICTORY!
AGAINST THE ATTACKS OF FASCISM, THE ONLY RIGHT POLICY IS THE RESISTANCE!
WE WILL FIGHT, WE WILL RESIST, AND WE WILL WIN!
The fascist power of AKP fired thousands of workers. We went out into the squares and streets, saying, “We want our jobs back!” We resisted in all parts of our country with sit-in protests and hunger strikes.
The fascist power of AKP banned squares for the people. For 4 years, we went out in the squares every day, and for that, we were detained and tortured by the police. We were imprisoned. But we have shown that we have the will to conquer the squares with our slogans of resistance. The squares in our country have become synonymous with struggle and resistance. We have created new organizational structures. We created the Council of resisters on Yuksel Blvd. in Ankara, the Yuksel Internet TV. Through the Council of Resistance that we have created, we turned our will into an organized force, aiming to unite the resistance throughout the country.
With our workers, with our civil servants, with our people from the slums, with our students, with our peasants, we resisted. We have created new positions in the struggle.
The fascist power of AKP attacked the revolutionary prisoners. The revolutionaries set to fire their cells in the prisons all over Turkey. We have added new values and traditions to our tradition of “free captivity” which started with Apo, Fatih, Hasan, and Haydar. We declared: “Against constant fascism, constant resistance!” We declared: “Offensive against fascism!”
The fascist power of AKP tried to detach the people from their values through the policies that encouraged becoming police informants and espionage. With our Koçak (Brave) Mustafa, we set up a barricade against the attack. Mustafa Koçak has become a symbol of the honor and dignity of our people.
The fascist power of AKP tried to destroy art for the benefit of the people. We resisted, learning from our masters of art, who said, “Those who make the songs of a nation, are stronger than those who make the laws.” We organized concerts on the streets, in the trailers of trucks, on the roofs of houses. With internet concerts, we reached the people. With the commander of the seven notes – Helin and the heart with the red star – Ibrahim, we shook the world!
The fascist power of AKP tried to destroy the practice of law for the benefit of the people. We have not separated the struggle in the field of law from the political struggle. We resisted not within the legitimacy outlined by this status quo, but with the legitimacy of the struggle for justice of the people. We have given new values, and traditions to the practice of law for the benefit of the people, worldwide. With our goddess of justice – Ebru Timtik, our victory shook the world.
HERE IS THE RESISTANCE! HERE IS THE VICTORY!
The fascist AKP, failing to accept our victory, resorted to new conspiracies. It attacks our people, women, and men, young and old, who are fighting for their people and homeland. The fascist power is showing its helplessness in the face of our struggle for justice. This is not the first attack of imperialism and fascism, nor will it be the last. We will thwart their conspiracies, we will continue and intensify our struggle for justice.
We will intensify the struggle, with new comrades like
We will seek an account of our martyrs, intensifying our struggle for justice, and intensifying our people’s liberation war!
THE PEOPLE’S FRONT CANNOT BE BROKEN! We never gave up. We never reconciled. From the battle in Kızıldere to the shootout in Çağlayan, from Mahir Çayan to Dursun Karataş, to this day, we have never given up. We never reconciled. We responded to all attacks with resistance. We went through many trials, creating new epic examples of resistance. We continued our march towards the revolution, at the cost of captives and martyrs. What has helped us reach from Mahir Çayan to Dursun Karataş, to this day is our uncompromising stance, against imperialism and fascism, which has never changed. With our ideological clarity, with our ideological independence, in the light of our ideological determination, we continue our march for revolution and socialism!
WE ARE HERE, AGAINST THE POLICIES OF IMPERIALISM FOR CAPITULATION AND LIQUIDATION!
THE POLITICS OF THE FASCIST AKP, AIMING AT CAPITULATION, ARE INVALID IN FRONT OF THE RESISTING MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS OF THE PEOPLE’S FRONT!
THE ONLY RIGHT POLICY, AGAINST FASCISM, IS THE RESISTANCE. WE WILL RESIST, AND WE WILL WIN!
WE WILL BREAK THE CONSPIRACIES OF THE FASCISM! DETAINEES MUST BE RELEASED IMMEDIATELY!
THE PEOPLE’S FRONT CANNOT BE BROKEN! THE VICTORY IS OURS!
