    Brexit: Burying “The End of History”

    So Brexit is here. Fifty-two per cent of the British people voted to leave the EU. This is an historic outcome. Britain, that is to say the world’s fifth and Europe’s second biggest economy, a country where Europe’s foremost financial centre, the City of London, second only to Wall Street in global rankings, is located, one of the three nuclear powers of NATO and the world’s most powerful...

  • They are all in agreement about capitalists’ interests and US partisanship! We are not! We will struggle until they are all gone!

    When the December 2013 corruption cases exploded, the people took to the streets to ask account for the corruption. Barricades were set up near Taksim and there was a banner above one barricade. “We are the 99%” and “Let them all go!” said the banner. But who are the “them”? Let us name “them” from left to right: Tayyip Erdoğan, Fethullah Gülen, Abdullah Gül, Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, Mustafa...

  • DIP raises the banner of anti-imperialism and class struggle

    Since the failed coup attempt of 15 July, there is a lingering suspicion that the United States was aware of the planned coup, may have been consulted before or during the events by some at least of the forces involved in the coup, or perhaps may even have been involved in the planning of the coup plot.

  • Τουρκία: Ατλαντισμός εναντίον Ραμπιισμού*

    Τα δραματικά γεγονότα που εκτυλίχθηκαν στην Τουρκία τη νύχτα της 15ης προς 16η Ιουλίου έχουν περιοριστεί υπερβολικά στον αγώνα μέχρις εσχάτων ανάμεσα σε δύο Ισλαμικά ρεύματα, αυτό του AKP υπό τη σιδερένια γροθιά του Ρετζέπ Ταγίπ Ερντογάν και στη σύγχρονη νέμεσή του την αδελφότητα του Γκιουλέν. Αυτό είναι παραπλανητικό υπό δύο έννοιες.

  • Some thoughts on the recent events in Turkey

    Our thoughts will focus and develop on three crucial points brought forward by the DIP: a. the fallacy of “a defeat of dictatorship by democracy”; b. the fallacy that “only the Gulenists are involved in the coup”, and c. the danger of “Syrianization” of Turkey.

  • Törökország: két puccs háborúja

    A július 15-ről 16-ra virradó éjszakán megdöbbentő felfordulás tanúja lehetett az egész világ: a török hadsereg egy jelentős része megkísérelte megragadni Recep Tayyip Erdoğan és az AKP kormány hatalmát, céljukat majdnem valóra váltották, de a végén leverték őket. Az imperialista országok hivatalos nyilatkozatai a demokrácia győzelmét ünnepelték. De semmi sem lehet messzebb az igazságnál!...

    The dramatic events that unfolded in Turkey on the night of 15 to 16 July have been excessively confined to the internecine struggle of two different Islamic currents, that of the AKP under the iron fist of Recep Tayyip Erdogan and its latter day nemesis the Gulen fraternity. This is misleading in two senses. On the one hand, it hides from view the distinct possibility or even more and more...

    On the night of 15-16 July, Turkey went through a cataclysm that stunned the world: a huge section of the armed forces of the country (TSK in its Turkish acronym) attempted to take power from the government of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the AKP, came very close to its objective, but was ultimately defeated. Official statements of imperialist countries celebrate the triumph of democracy.

If an independent Sanders candidacy materialises, the movement born thereof should be used...
