What is the celebration for on July 15?
The real celebration of our people will be only when, pro-American, reactionist, market-oriented and anti-labour policies will be thrown out of this country.
Is there any difference between Turkey that AKP has created and wants to create and a country that the coup plotters, so-called FETÖ (Terrorist Organization of Fethullah) desired?
Both have nothing to do with the benefit of the working people. Aren’t both the coup plotters and those who faced the plot, in the service of the capitalists?
Don’t they both endeavor to win the favor of the US government and NATO?
Isn’t it apparent that the coup plotters and the government both aim a society based on religious rules, instead of aiming a secular society?
So, what is the point of this celebration?
Are you celebrating the salvation of the country or the salvation of Tayyip Erdogan?
Let’s make it clear: AKP government enjoys prevailing in a battle between brothers. It is the AKP government that had appointed the coup plotters to the most critical posts in the state; and it was AKP that inflicted reactionary blows to the political, social and economic structure of the country. It is the same government that is incapable of cleaning itself from the coup plotters and fails to clarify the identity of those plotters even though a year has passed over July 15th.
To declare July 15 as a national celebration is nothing but an insult to the intelligence of people. It is rare in history that coup plotters and those who are exposed to the coup resemble each other so much.
It is important to see the distortion of the facts in the words of Fethullah Gülen, chief of the coup plotters, when he says, “it is Erdogan himself who organized the coup, not me.”
The fact is that they plotted coups against the people together and for many times.
This is the reality of July 15.
The real celebration of our people will be only when, pro-American, regressive, market-oriented and anti-labour policies will be thrown out of this country.
