The Governorship of İstanbul has disallowed the rally of the Communist Party of Turkey that is scheduled to be held on April 8 in İstanbul. We will pursue this incident in terms of laws. We will politically prove once again that they will not be able to silence the voice of the working people. TKP has calls the people to come together on April 8 across the country to raise the voice of ‘no’ with the Party’s weekly journal, ‘Boyun Eğme’ (‘Do Not Surrender’) with the attendance of thousands of people, trade unionists, intellectuals, artists and academicians.
There will be a mass meeting at 4.00pm on April 8, Saturday. Our call is to meet and raise the voice of “No”at Kartal Square, at a time when they try to suppress with bans, despotism, and threats, yet the campaign for No continues to proliferate in, all over the country.
Joint Statement by NCPN and TKP:
We declare once more that we will stand against imperialist policies of the European Union.
We remind the fact that rising racism can only be stopped with the unity of the proletariat.
We emphasise that we will struggle in an internationalist consciousness against any practice restricting the rights of the working class and migrant workers.
We point to the impossibility of a better capitalism and the necessity to intensify struggle for the only choice, socialism.
AKP is an outcome of the plays of imperialists on our country.
From the Netherlands to Germany, the USA to the UK… AKP cannot be the representative of the people; not just because imperialists who made AKP down on the country’s neck have turned their backs.
Just as that the ones who enmeshed AKP in our country, cannot be our saviour today.
This disgrace should be stopped immediately.
We should immediately get rid of this manipulative public enemy gang in the government which has turned out to be a disaster for our country.
NO to both imperialism and its off-centre and presumptuous puppets!
