From every progression we come out more powerful.
The fascism that tries to seize control of the people under the name of state of emergency, has lost once again. Once again, those that came out victorious from the streets, hospitals, resistances and clashes, were ourselves. We are living in a period of submission and collaboration. While everyone from trade unions, to political organizations, raises a white flag, we rose the flag of hope, we resisted and we won.
What we have won is the unlimited faith of our people in us, and ours in our people.
Our free prisoners who say continuous resistance against the continuous fascism in the prisons.
We became public workers with Türkan Albayrak and Mahir Kılıç who were fired from their works, with the teachers who were thrown out via government decree.
We became mother Kezban who protests for 79 days for her imprisoned daughter.
We became Ayten Öztürk who was abducted by the fascism and held for 6 months in a counter-guerrilla camp, who was tortured and left with 868 scars.
We became İbrahim Devrim Top who continued with the tradition of no surrender.
We became the nightmare of the fascism and the imperialism. For this reason, they attack the Front with the daily arrests, imprisonments and the policies of massacre. We did not make a single step back. We showed the only way for those that walk on the path of resistance towards the victory.
We resisted, we won. With the victory we have won, we will establish Free Homeland.
WE HAVE BROKEN THIS SIEGE THE SAME WAY WE BROKE EVERY SIEGE
Why is the imperialism and the oligarchy attacking the Front?
Raids in our country and in Europe, torture and imprisonment continue. The Front members which are arrested in daily raids have never given up on responding with resistance.
Within one year, Cultural Center İdil has been raided 6 times, but the activities of the revolutionary art continue.
The fascism has put a price on the heads of 6 members of Grup Yorum. It’s 11 imprisoned members’ best answer, 16 new songs under the name “Our Tunes Against Your Lists” was published. Raids, torture and imprisonment cannot impede the revolutionary art.
17 revolutionary lawyers were imprisoned. Revolutionary lawyers thought us how the lawyers’ job in the court has to be done: they were not the accused, they were the prosecution. As the consequence of being right and of the support that was demonstrated, the fascism was left by no choice then to release the imprisoned people’s lawyers. The fascism has demonstrated it’s injustice once again: within 6 hours with a special order the arrest warrant was issued for the released lawyers. Now, 7 revolutionary lawyers are imprisoned, and 10 of them are being search for. In spite of all pressures, 17 revolutionary lawyers became the teachers of justice, and they will continue being so.
Voice of the people, voice of the hope, the magazine Yürüyüş was raided three times this year, two times within the same week. The AKP’s fascism, like an imperialist efendi, fears of the truth we write. They fear the growing hope.
Yüksel, Bakırköy, Sarıyer, Armutlu, in front of CHP… Yüksel resistors, Kezban Ana, Alev Şahin, Mahir Kılıç, Türkan Albayrak… From 7 to 70 year olds, from Istanbul to Ankara, from Izmir to Düzce have converted every place into a field of resistance.
Yüksel resistance continues for 783 whole days. We have learned this determination from these words of our Uncle: “ONE PERSON CAN DO MANY THINGS. WHEN? WHEN HE OR SHE WANTS IT HARD.”
With the practice of one year we have confirmed the correctness of these words, once again. By uniting our resistances from the one-man resistance to the resistance council, by adding new victories to the ones we have won, we are marching towards a greater triumph.
In the struggle against drugs, prostitution, gambling and all kinds of decadence in the poor slums, İbrahim Devrim Top fell martyr. İbrahim Devrim Top was killed by the Special Forces in Armutlu because he punished a drug dealer who was selling drugs and making the neighborhood addicted. İbrahim Devrim Top thought us not to give up call to reckoning while the fascism protects the drug dealers. He became our flag against the decadence.
We made tens of concerts of Grup Yorum in Germany while making the efforts to impede them in vain. This is what he have thought German imperialism: wherever there is Front, there is resistance, determination and victory. German imperialism does not recognize it’s own laws even. We also do not reckonise it’s laws. Grup Yorum’s concerts cannot be prohibited, cannot be prevented. Grup Yorum that sings people’s songs, that brings hope to the people, that calls people to organize, cannot be silenced.
With it’s arbitrary arrests imperialism tries to besiege the Front in Europe, to terrorize and to do away with the revolutionaries. There are 16 free prisoners in total, outside of our country. The trials of our free prisoners are completely unlawful. Their crimes: waging struggle against the imperialist policies of massacre and decadence. Their crimes: to organize Grup Yorum concerts, to organize democratic actions… Organizing campaigns against drugs, prostitution and gambling is seen as a crime. Waging struggle against the racism in Europe is seen as a crime. In this siege, revolutionary prisoners became the accusation of the imperialism in the imperialism’s own courts.
We opened Center for Struggle Liberation from Drugs “Hasan Ferit Gedik” in Germany. Our center became the hope against drugs, gambling and all sorts of decadence. While the imperialism is making the people and the children of Anatolia addicted, we grow our struggle against it and become the hope of our families. In Belgium, Cahit Zorel won via sit-in protest. Now in Germany, İlker Şahin and Deniz Yıldız are resisting in front of Ministry of Interior building in Düsseldorf for their right to make sit-in protests. In Schwetzingen Cemaat Ocak resists. In Austria, resistance tent was set up for the trial against Anatolian Federation organization.
Fascist collaborator Lebanese state delivered Ayten Öztürk to Turkish fascism. Ayten Öztürk resisted in spite of all kinds of physical and psychological torture: electric batons, drowning in water, murder and even rape threats. Resistance and tradition is created via ideology. Strength is the ideology. This was not possible to accomplish without the superiority of our ideology and belief in our victory. Consider this: a handful of torturers, imprisoned Ayten Öztürk in a torture house and did not leave a torture unapplied. In addition, they asked questions which they knew the answer to: “What is your name?” What is the reason for this torture? The reason is hidden in this sentence: “Bring the contents of your head out.” The contents of our heads are the nightmares of the people’s enemies. Because this thoughts will bring the end to the system of exploitation.
THE NUMBER 868 WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN, WE WILL NOT HAVE IT FORGOTTEN!
There are 868 torture marks on Ayten’s body. Those eight hundred and sixty eight wounds became the reason for our war, for our determination to fight.
If we divide it over six months, it makes five tortured per day. For us, the meaning of 868 goes beyond that of a number. To make the enemy’s oppression in vain for 868 times, to engrave our ideology in the enemy’s brain 868 times, to shout our invincibility 868 times, it means you were not able to seize control of us for 868 times, to announce over and over again for 868 that we will not reconcile, to look for comrades 868 times and to find them 868 times. It means to repeat 868 times all values and traditions we created to this day.
The Front said we will overcome the siege with the organized struggle, and it overcame it. Because of the resistances we named above the imperialism and the oligarchy is attacking the Front. We responded with the resistance to the policies of imperialism that wanted to isolate the Front, to besiege it and destroy it, and we made them in vain.
While the imperialism is drowning Middle East in blood, the collaborationism of the Kurdish nationalism knows no limits.
Kurdish nationalists, the partners in crime of imperialism in Syria, continue to massacre Syrian people. Under the excuse “we are fighting against ISIS”, the US imperialism that is using Kurdish nationalists says: “we are working with the best collaborator in two centuries”. They took trucks full of weapons from the imperialists, they received military training, together they held military celebrations, they danced together with Americans while holding hands.
The US defended by the Kurdish nationalists, killed millions under the name of “we’re brining democracy to the Middle East”.
Kurdish nationalists forgot that the US they defend is the enemy of the people of the world.
The US they defend is the architect of Guantanamo, Abu Garib and F-type prisons.
The US they defend is the main responsible for the massacres in our country.
The US they defend says: “Either you change your ideas or you die! Either you will submit your minds, or you die!”, and Kurdish nationalism change their ideas.
The ones you trust are not the oppressed peoples of the world, it’s the imperialism.
We are saying that all nations of the world should determine their own destiny, not as being imperialist collaborator.
Kurdish nationalists do not believe in the power of the Kurdish people, but in the power of American imperialism.
We believe in Kurdish people, for this reason we believe in all peoples of the world.
WE ARE SAYING: IN KURDISTAN THE ONLY WAY IS THE REVOLUTION.
FRONT IS THE FEAR OF THE IMPERIALISM!
One one Marxist-Leninist movement has left in the world and this movements tie to the people is a tie that will never be ripped from the Anatolian land. Because we believe in our ideology. We will make the revolution with our people, our ideology and our organization. What the imperialism sees behind us is a giant popular army. THAT’S WHAT THE IMPERIALISM FEARS. WE WILL MAKE THE FEARS OF IMPERIALISM GROW!
Our people! Members of the Front!
No one stands against the power of organization.
Let’s establish People’s Councils and Committees in all areas of our lives. Let us resolve our problems.
Let’s organize people’s justice and people’s rage within our hawks.
Every member of the Front has to create his own alternative and educate about it.
Every member of the Front must learn and teach both as student and as a teacher.
We give our word to our people. We will continue fighting under every condition. We will continue being their hope.
Our councils, our militia will organize the our poor people, they will fight and we will win.
WE WILL CONTINUE OUR STRUGGLE UNTIL THE CITIES AND THE MOUNTAINS OF OUR COUNTRY ARE FREE!
Call to our cadre! To break this siege, no matter under which conditions we are at, wherever we are, without waiting a single moment to grow the struggle, we shall continue to create the possibility of it! The duty of every member of the Front being both cadre and fighter, is to grow the possibilities of our struggle, and to intensify it with minds and hearts.
We are the only fighting Marxist-Leninist organization left in the world.
While all organizations have buried their weapons and entered in the competition to rise the flags of surrender, we are holding the flag of war even higher.
Our responsibility and our honor is the debt to the people of the world.
WE WILL CREATE PARADISE FOR OUR ANATOLIAN PEOPLE, AND HELL FOR THE IMPERIALISTS AND THEIR COLLABORATORS!
THIS STRUGGLE CONTINUES FROM MAHIR TO OUR UNCLE!
WE ARE RIGHT, WE WILL WIN!
PEOPLE OF ANATOLIA AND PEOPLE OF THE WORLD ARE CELEBRATING NEW YEAR,WE ARE GROWING THE STRUGGLE!
