An independent and sovereign country where the exploitation of man by man is abolished, unemployment is eliminated, people do not suffer from hunger and homelessness but enjoy free, egalitarian and contemporary services of education and healthy, enjoy free culture and arts, and where the discrimination gender and ethnic discriminations and pressures are abolished, and religion is removed from state affairs…
Communist Party of Turkey struggles for such a country. The ones who call this a dream either have lost their hope in humanity or accumulate interest from this order of poverty, injustice, tyranny and war.
However there is no reason to lose hope. Humanity could come through much darker eras throughout history. They are only a minority exploiting billions of people around the world deriving benefits from the existing socio-political system. We do not have to bear a rotten order just for the sake of their pleasure, and we won’t…
The socialist revolution by the working people of Russia, having its 100th anniversary today, is the clear evidence of what we say. When the workers seized the power on November 7, 1917, under the lead of the communists, the bloody slaughter of the First World War had not yet come to an end. The war had begun as a result of a cutthroat competition of big imperialist countries so as to share the world. Lenin the great revolutionary addressed the oppressed and said: ‘Do not be part to this slaughter, rise against this system which dooms you to war and starvation’. His call was received broad approval, first the Russians, then Ukrainian, the people of the Caucuses, oppressed of the Asia stood up and founded the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics proved the possibility of a life without exploitation, unemployment, poverty, hunger, ignorance, racism, tyranny. Although they had a long way to go further, the gains of the Soviets on the path to communism, until the collapse in 1991, were incomparable.
The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, which had been an agricultural country prior to the socialist revolution, became one of the top industrial countries of the world by virtue of socialism. Tremendous success had been achieved in science, culture, art and sports. The glorious Red Army of the Soviet people, had been a determining factor in the defeat of Hitler fascism.
We cannot list enough the gains of humanity through the socialist revolution of 1917. The Communist Party of Turkey laughs off the allegations saying that path has been closed at all. Indeed, it is the worldwide order which promises nothing but crises, wars, hunger and unemployment, environmental disasters, religious fundamentalism and idiot leaders, at the point of death.
Come join us in our struggle to carry Turkey to a humanely world. Let’s find the way the October Revolution paved 100 years ago. We are in the era of imperialism and socialist revolutions. These two facts conflict each other. Either imperialism will annihilate humanity or humanity will win with socialism!
Have faith in the second one. This is the call of TKP.
