Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) condemned the Manchester attack and conveyed solidarity for the people of Britain by sending a letter of condolence to the fraternal parties of Britain:
TKP announces its unconditional solidarity and full support with the rightful struggle of Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike and the working people of Palestine against Israeli occupation.
We stand by all educators who have been dismissed unlawfully by standing by Nuriye Gülmen and Semih Özakça.
We call everyone for backing this legitimate struggle.
We warn the government: You are responsible from anything bad that could happen to these two progressive people. Correct your mistake now!

Interview with Kemal Okuyan, First Secretary of the Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) by soL InternationaL, on various political issues such as the controversial April 16 referendum, the new correlation of forces in Turkey's domestic politics, the general crisis of imperialism, the position of Turkey within the international crisis under the rule of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan as a 'problem generator', and the possibilities for the popular movement against the capitalist rule and the corrupted political establishment in Turkey.
May 1st of 2017 should be celebrated with massive participation of our people who do not submit. Our working class, our hope for the future, should prove its strength. For that, we call all the working men and women, all the educated and youth to march with TKP. TKP will take place with its own rally ranks at the meetings to be held in İstanbul, Ankara, İzmir and Adana. We announce our participation to those meetings to be held by the initiative of DİSK, KESK, TMMOB and TTB.
Everybody should know this well: TKP will carry on its rightful struggle to empower the will of the people. This struggle is against the Soros-sponsored interventions and the fundamentalist public enemies. As of tomorrow, we are calling to establish and organise the ‘Committees against Presidency’ everywhere, at all workplaces, neighbourhoods, and schools.
