Statement No: 2022/1

We continue to keep their memories alive, waving their flags and growing their struggles!


"No matter how long the road is, the first step must be taken.“We set out with the word. Our party was formed from the class struggle practice of these lands. We were fed by the strikes of the working class in the last years of the Ottoman Empire and the struggles of the oppressed people and nations. We were inspired by the October 17 Revolution, which took place under the leadership of V.I.Lenin, who became immortal at the end of January, and we took action. When we stood up to unite with the struggles of the working class, the oppressed people, the oppressed nations and faiths, we were murdered by a vile conspiracy.

It was aimed to bury the communist movement led by Mustafa Suphi in the cold waters of the Black Sea in the last days of January. In our first steps, 15 comrades became immortal. Comrade Maria Suphi was held captive and was murdered after being subjected to all kinds of torture. We were tested by the class and patriarchal hatred of our class enemies!

Our debut was answered with blood and torture. It was aimed to imprison communist thought in the depths of the Black Sea. The party was badly injured. And he could not stand up for half a century. Although the struggle of the working class and the oppressed people continued during this time, these movements could not be led. A deep fascist darkness was imposed on the working class, on the oppressed nations and beliefs. The massacres and torture continued mercilessly. We died and we died again!

This darkness had to end. It's over! Half a century ago, on April 24, 1972, we stood up again with the warmth of the “sun rising from the east”. We turned to the light of Chairman Mao. In the developing class struggle of the working class and the oppressed people, we obeyed the call of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. We were re-established with a limited number of cadres under the leadership of İbrahim Kaypakkaya and plunged into the vast sea of ​​class struggle with all our being. Just as Nazım Hikmet said:For the days to come, verses did not descend from the sky for us. We promised it ourselves..."

We continued to be tested with death and massacre. We bid farewell to Ali Haydar Yıldız, one of the first commanders of our people's army, TİKKO, and our comrade Meral Yakar, to the sun once again in January.

We have rebuilt our party in the vast sea of ​​class struggle with our labor, blood and soul. And we continue to exist!

Our immortalized comrades became a mortar to the foundation of our party not only with their labor but also with their lives and blood. They fell to the ground in our country as living examples of Marxism Leninism Maoism. And they sprouted as seeds. They lived and made our party live.

Since the founding of our party, hundreds of our comrades have unhesitatingly waved the flag of the international proletariat in the middle of the fight, on the mountain tops, in the dungeons, on the barricades, in the practice of class struggle in every field. They have become the essence and summary of our 50 years of party history.

We existed with our martyrs, we lived with them, we continued our struggle with them and we continue to do so.

50 Years in the Footsteps of Our Immortals!

Our Party is Our Guiding, Inspiration and Power Source!

The excessive profit greed and exploitation of imperialist capitalism is driving humanity and the planet to extinction. The destruction of nature by the capitalist system for more profit leaves humanity with epidemics. More than five million people have died due to the Covid-19 pandemic. If the imperialist capitalist system is not eliminated, the world is in danger of extinction.

Class struggle is in full swing in various forms and contents. The future is preparing new revolutions and popular uprisings, and those immortalized in this struggle deserve to be remembered with respect.

Our Party considers the last week of January as "Party and Revolution Martyrs' Memorial Week". This year, January is even more important for our party. The year 2022 is the 50th anniversary of the founding of our party. Our party celebrates its 50th anniversary50th Anniversary: ​​Our Party is Our Guidance, Inspiration and Power!” will be handled as a campaign with the slogan. Our campaign will start in the last week of January with the Party and Martyrs of the Revolution Commemoration Week and will continue until May 18, the date of the murder of our leading comrade.

For 50 years, TKP-ML has waved the communist flag, mostly in the hands of our martyrs, within the class struggle in these lands. This is a history full of defeats and victories, setbacks and advances, but with the Party tradition it created and perpetuated in any case, its insistence on the armed struggle, its resistance in the dungeons, the organizations it created within the working class, the peasant resistances it led, and many more. Let's celebrate our 50th anniversary with the awareness of this reality. Wherever we are, at every party event, every practical activity, let's honor our immortals in every field and every moment! Let's shout their names with our slogans! Let's send a strong salute to them and their struggles!


Party and Revolution Martyrs are Immortal!
