We salute the Anniversary of TKP-ML!
The Popular Front greets its comrades on the occasion of the anniversary of the founding of the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Turkey and the martyrdom of its founder, revolutionary leader Ibrahim Kaypakkaya.
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine salutes the comrades of the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Turkey, TKP-ML, and congratulates its half-century anniversary and the 49th commemoration of the martyrdom of its founder, the revolutionary leader of the Turks and Kurds, one of the most central figures of the left, of Turkey and the international struggle, and a true fighter for liberty.
On the same occasion, the Popular Front salutes also the leaders and symbols of the Party, among them the martyr and comrade Ali Haydar Yildiz and the Armenian martyr and fighter fighter Nubar Ozanyan, who gave his life in the face of takfiri assault backed by the imperialists in the Kurdish regions of northern Syria.
The Popular Front also pays tribute to the political path undertaken by the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Turkey and its fight for the liberation of the Turkish people from imperialism and the Kurdish people’s right to self-determination. It is actually this political path that leads the party, its members and its leaders to pay the price, to life bans, hunt downs, pursuits, tortures and assassinations. Despite all this, they kept holding on their principles, and continued to fight against American domination and affiliation and against the dictatorial politics of the Turkish state and its alignment with imperialism. We salute their constant fight for achieving social justice and the right for self-determination of all people, specially the Kurdish people.
Front values the Communist Party’s permanent stance on issues of international liberation, where the Palestinian cause is at the heart and praises its historical and solid relations that link to the Popular Front, as well as the proximity between our political programs and visions.
In conclusion; This occasion constitutes an opportunity to stress the importance of strengthening the unity of revolutionary and progressive movements throughout the world with the aim of continuing the struggle alongside the oppressed peoples and confronting imperialism and its allies, the Zionist entity and the reactionary regimes.
Long live the unity of revolutionary movements in the world!
On the anniversary of its foundation, long live the Communist Party of Turkey – Marxist-Leninist!
And salutations to the spirit of the martyr leader İbrahim Kaypakkaya!
