طبق اطلاعاتی که به دست ما رسیده است، شما قصد دارید از تاریخ ۵ فوریه ۲۰۲۰ اعتصاب کنید. همبستگی و حمایت ما از مبارزات و مطالبات برحق‌تان را بپذیرید.

دولت ترکیه به عنوان حامی منافع سرمایه‌داران ترکیه همواره تلاش نموده است، مبارزات و اعتصابات کارگری در ترکیه را بطور قانونی‌ ممنوع کند، به‌ویژه در صنعت فلز که از اهمیت خاصی برای اقتصاد ترکیه برخوردار است. این سیاست هنگامی به مرحله اجرا گذاشته می‌شود، که به دلیل بحران اقتصادی حاکم بر ترکیه و رشد روزافزون تورم شرایط معیشتی میلیون‌ها کارگر و زحمتکش ترکیه هر روز وخیم‌تر می‌شود.

wir haben von euerm geplanten Streik beginnend am 05.02.2020 erfahren. Wir möchten hiermit unsere Solidarität mit euerm Kampf und unsere Unterstützung für eure gerechten Forderungen zum Ausdruck bringen.

Die türkische Regierung, die die Interessen der türkischen Kapitalisten vertritt, hat stets versucht, die drohenden Arbeiterstreikes gesetzlich zu verbieten, vor allem in der für die türkische Wirtschaft bedeutsame Metallindustrie. Das geschieht zu einer Zeit, während durch die in der Türkei herrschenden Wirtschaftskrise und die steigende Inflation das Leben von Millionen Arbeiter*Innen und Werktätigen immer schwieriger wird. Die türkische Regierungspolitik wird nur immer mehr Menschen in Armut und Elend stürzen, während sich eine kleine Minderheit ungehindert bereichern kann.

We found out about your planned strike starting on February 5th, 2020. We would like to express our solidarity with your struggle and our support for your just demands.

The Turkish government, representing the interests of Turkish capitalists, has always tried to legally prohibit the threat of worker strikes, especially in the metal industry, which is important for the Turkish economy. This is happening at a time when the economic crisis in Turkey and rising inflation are making the lives of millions of workers more and more difficult. Turkish government policy will only plunge more and more people into poverty and misery, while a small minority can freely enrich themselves.

DIP had recently issued a call to extend the solidarity with the metal workers of Turkey who were in the collective bargaining process. A possible strike by the metal workers was under the risk of being banned by the despotic regime. So, international solidarity was of utmost importance. Hence, this call has been translated to 6 languages (English, Spanish, French, Italian, Persian and Bulgarian) and was widely distributed internationally. As a result of this, more than 200 signatures from 22 countries (Argentina, Greece, Russian Federation, France, Cuba, Cyprus, Azerbaijan, Iran, India, Lebanon, Canada, USA, Finland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Brazil, Peru, Italy, Spain, Austria and Sweden) were collected within days for the below declaration of solidarity. Here we publish the declaration and the signs.

The year 2019 will surely be remembered for the plethora of mass uprisings and mobilisations over the face of our planet, from France to Sudan and from Chile to Iran. However, this trend is developing against a background of continuing threats of deepening economic crisis and impoverishment, of wars small and large, and of the rise of fascism and reaction.

Le DIP (Parti Révolutionnaire de Travailleurs), qui est une organisation internationaliste basée en Turquie, salue les efforts héroïques des peuples de vos pays pour contester les structures étatiques et le système économique capitaliste sur lequel ces structures étatiques s’élèvent. Après la résilience impressionnante du peuple soudanais, qui a perdu des centaines de martyrs révolutionnaires dans le processus, la résolution du peuple algérien, qui n'a pas cessé de défier le régime sous toutes ses formes de manifestation, nous avons maintenant l'Irak avec presque 500 martyrs, dans un laps de temps beaucoup plus court que la révolution soudanaise. Il s'agit d'un hommage à la «démocratie» que l'Amérique était censée apporter à l'Irak, qui s'avère nettement pire que le régime d'Omar el-Béchir! Même le Liban, où, malgré une répression bien réelle, les choses ont commencé plutôt pacifiquement par rapport aux autres pays, entre maintenant, semble-t-il, dans une période de répression violente de la part des soi-disant «forces de sécurité». Nous observons avec une grande admiration la résistance et la résolution de...

Bağdat havalimanına yapılan roket saldırısıyla İran Devrim Muhafızları’na bağlı Kudüs Gücü komutanı Kasım Süleymani ile Irak’ın Halk Seferberliği Güçleri (Haşdi Şabi/Haşduşşa’bi) Başkan Yardımcısı Ebu Mehdi El-Mühendis’in ve 6 kişinin daha katledilmesi, emperyalist ABD’nin yeni bir terör saldırısıdır. Bu saldırının işareti Trump’ın İran’a yönelik “bu bir uyarı değil tehdittir” diyerek attığı yılbaşı tivitiyle ve dün ABD Savunma Bakanı Mark Esper tarafından “Amerikalıların hayatlarını korumak için önleyici eyleme geçebiliriz” sözleriyle verilmişti. Kötü ünlü önleyici savaş doktrini 11 Eylül 2001 (El Kaide’nin New York’ta İkiz Kulelere ve Pentagon’a uçak kaçırarak yaptığı saldırılar) sonrasında Afganistan ve Irak’ın işgal edilmesine zemin hazırlayan Amerikan resmi söylemidir. Bu doktrin herhangi bir meşru sebep olmaksızın ABD emperyalizminin çıkarlarını korumak için askeri saldırı yapmasını öngörmektedir. Irak’ta bugün olan da budur.

The text below (in Greek) is a common call of action against Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Greece to sign the EastMed pipeline deal with the Greek prime minister and Cypriot president on January 2, signed by a number of Greek left forces including EEK (Workers Revolutionary Party). While the prime minister of the occupier state called Israel visited Athens to sign the deal which will enable Israel to ship the natural gas it steals from Palestinians to Europe via Greece and Cyprus, a large crowd marched to the Zionist embassy to protest the deal and to show the war criminal Netanyahu that he will never be welcome in Greece! EEK was on the front lines in the demonstration alongside our Palestinian sisters and brothers to stop the deal which will upgrade the position of US imperialism and Israel Zionism in the Eastern Mediterranean by deepening the Greece-Cyprus-Egypt-Israel military and energy cooperation.

El chavismo, ahora dirigido por Maduro y los suyos, con toda su debilidad, todavía moviliza, lo siguen y lo votan, ¿no tiene vigencia? De ser negativa la respuesta, va contra el devenir dialéctico, es decir ¿de dónde viene?, inclusive dentro del marco latinoamericano, más allá de nuestras fronteras, pregúntenle a Trump. Los que dicen ¡Fuera Maduro! ¿Pretenden con esto derrotar al imperialismo? No se puede ser neutral entre los dos campos burgueses en lucha, el programa nacional debe ser superado por las masas en su lucha, por supuesto la vanguardia proletaria dirigiendo, en la cual nosotros debemos estar, no nos quedemos esperando un milagro.

Dear sisters and brothers of Iraq, Lebanon, Algeria and Sudan!

The DIP (Revolutionary Workers Party), which is an internationalist organisation based in Turkey, salutes the heroic efforts of the peoples of your countries in challenging the state structures and the capitalist economic system upon which those state structures rise. After the impressive resilience of the Sudanese people, who lost hundreds of revolutionary martyrs in the process, the resolution of the Algerian people, who did not stop short of defying the regime in all its forms of manifestation, we now have Iraq with its close to 500 martyrs, in a much shorter time span than Sudan’s revolution. This is a tribute to the “democracy” America was supposed to bring to Iraq, which turns out to be clearly worse than the regime of Omar al Bashir! Even Lebanon, where, despite the very real repression, things started out rather peacefully relative to the other countries, is now seemingly entering a period of violent repression on the part of the so-called “security forces”. We are watching with great admiration the resistance and resolution exhibited by your peoples.

La mobilisation contre la liquidation de notre système de retraite semble marquer le pas. La grève reste limitée, les manifestations sont importantes mais pas considérables. En tout cas en dessous du niveau nécessaire pour faire plier Macron.

Le mouvement est au milieu du gué.

En passant en force, Macron a fait basculer la CFDT du côté de la grève. Mais c’est contre son gré et seulement pour un temps. Le jeu de cette confédération est connu (depuis le « recentrage » initié par Edmond Maire en 1978, qui devance les desiderata patronaux et fait de ce syndicat un pion avancé des patrons dans les rangs ouvriers) : Berger espère obtenir une concession de Macron après quoi, faisant valoir SA victoire, il s’efforcera de briser la grève. À la CFDT s’ajoutent la CFTC, la CGC, et l’UNSA qui suivront l’itinéraire de la CFDT.

Not only did the Algerian people not vote, they also expressed their rage and refusal actively. On the day of the election, they chose to demonstrate. People were out in their tens or perhaps hundreds of thousands in the capital city Algiers, as well as Bouira, Tizi Ouzou, Bejaia, Tlemcen, Oran and others. Although the police attacked the demonstration in each city at a certain moment of its unfolding, the crowds dominated the city streets.

Corbyn has lost because he was not able to counter this pro-American alliance with an anti-imperialist, internationalist, progressive Brexit programme. Blair was not able to bring down Corbyn during the latter’s three-year leadership of Labour (Corbyn, when challenged, won a second leadership election in 2017 with an even higher margin), but he immobilised Corbyn to such a degree that, having suffered defeat because of this immobility, Corbyn has now promised that he would never lead Labour at an election any more. To put it differently, Corbyn did not lose these elections to Boris Johnson, but to Tony Blair, the embodiment of the liberal forces that had conquered Labour from within. That is why we have above, next to Corbyn, not a picture of Boris Johnson, but of Tony Blair.

On 17th October Lebanon erupted. 2 million people have since come out in cities and towns across this country of 7 million. People from all walks of life, except the crême de la crême, have since staged demonstrations, blocked roads, occupied Martyrs’ square in Beirut and other public spaces, marched to ministries, the Central Bank, and other agencies they hold responsible for the plight of the country, and waged strikes by workers in different industries. For a period of two whole weeks all public schools and universities were shut down, with children and teenagers of all ages, from elementary school pupils all the way up to university students, joining the demonstrations. Lebanese University, the biggest public university, was a major centre of agitation, especially its main campus in Hadath. Schools then opened, but students have kept up their political activity.

Renaissance Ouvrière Révolutionnaire, our sister organisation in France, was naturally present in the ranks of the French workers and people during the big general strike in that country. Here is a first report form our comrades.

The French working class has been preparing for this day for months. December 5 was chosen as the starting date of the general strike against the law that makes it possible for the ordinary French worker to get his or her pension only in the grave! The organization of the French bourgeoisie MEDEF had demanded this for years and President Emmanuel Macron who executes without any reserve when ordered by MEDEF rolled up his sleeves to pass this law. The answer was clear. Meetings were held at each station, leaflets were distributed in every corner, and almost every day another sector or layer of the working class declared their support for the strike. The D-day came and the switches started to turn off as from the evening of 4 December, and on 5 December in all the important cities of France, the streets were taken by the working class.

Los trabajadores y los pobres de Irán esperaban una señal. La señal llegó el viernes 15 de noviembre. El gobierno decidió cancelar los subsidios a la nafta y aumentar el precio del litro de nafta en un 50% para los primeros 60 litros mensuales y en un 300% para los litros siguientes. Todo Irán se rebeló. Lo mismo ocurrió con el evento de los Chalecos Amarillos en Francia (ver artículo “The Yellow Vests...”), con la revolución sudanesa (ver artículo “Sudan Revolution”), con la “Revolución de media jornada” de Ecuador (ver artículo “Yarım günlük...”), e incluso en Chile, donde la explosión no fue el resultado de una subida del precio del combustible, sino de una modesta subida de los precios del subte (ver artículo “Tahrir’den Tahrir’e...”). Las subidas de precios y tarifas no son la razón de los levantamientos recientes. Los pueblos del mundo están sencillamente esperando agazapados a que la clase capitalista haga un movimiento erróneo. Eso es todo.

On 1st October last month, precisely on the 70th anniversary of the second most important revolution of the 20th century, the Chinese revolution, the Iraqi revolution broke out in particular in the Shiite region of the country. The Communist Party of China has long abandoned the path of the revolution it had once led, but the working people of Iraq were saying, as it were, that revolution was not left out in the cold.

Iraq’s revolution is based entirely on the rightful grievances of its toiling population: joblessness, extremely poor social services, and immense corruption. The rate of unemployment has reached 30 per cent among the youth. The importance of this piece of statistics comes through when one remembers that 54 per cent of the population of 38 million of the country are under the age of 24. The lack of services bears bitterly ironic dimensions, since the supply of electric power is extremely unreliable even in the oil-rich city of Basra. There is also a lack of sanitation across the country: water is not available in potable quality and even agriculture suffers from this miserable supply of water. As for the corruption, this is a systemic ill through which the...

İran’ın işçileri ve yoksulları bir işaret bekliyordu. O işaret 15 Kasım Cuma günü geldi. Hükümet benzin sübvansiyonunu kesti ve benzinin fiyatına ayda kullanılan ilk 60 litre için %50, daha sonrası için ise %300 zam yaptı. Tüm İran ayağa kalktı. Bunun benzeri, Fransa’da Sarı Yelekliler olayında, Sudan devriminde, Ekvador’daki ‘yarım günlük devrim’de, ve hatta Şili’de, her ne kadar burada ayaklanmanın tetikleyicisi yakıt fiyatlarındaki artış yerine metro fiyatlarındaki ufak bir artış olsa da, yaşanmıştır. Fiyatlar ve ulaşım bedellerindeki artışlar bu isyanların nedeni değildir. Dünya halkları adeta pusuya yatmış ve sermayedar sınıfın yanlış bir hareketini beklemişlerdir. Olan bundan ibarettir.
