To Central Committee of TKP-ML: Dear comrades

To Central Committee of TKP-ML

Dear comrades,

I convey to you the warm greetings and congratulations of the ICOR on the 50th anniversary of your party and our deep solidarity to the memory of the martyrs who gave their lives in the struggle for the liberation of the working class and the broad masses in Turkey.

The foundation of your party 50 years ago was inspired by the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, with which the Chinese working class under the leadership of Mao Zedong successfully defended the Chinese revolution against the attempt of revisionist degenerate officials to restore capitalism. The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution was an excellent example of the fact that it is the task of us revolutionaries to always develop Marxism-Leninism further and to apply it creatively to the problems of our time. I am glad to work on this together with you in the ICOR.

You courageously resisted the bloody terror of the rulers and held on to the Marxist-Leninist class struggle and party building even under the conditions of military dictatorship and fascism. I look forward to working and fighting with you in ICOR to ensure that our dream of liberating humanity from exploitation and oppression in the United Socialist States of the World will one day come true. Many comrades have dedicated their whole lives or given their lives for this struggle. They have died, but their lives continue to work in the work of our organizations.

Warm greetings and solidarity,

Monika Gärtner-Engel, ICOR General Coordinator.
