Desde la Coordinadora Sindical Clasista y el Partido Obrero de la Argentina denunciamos la prohibición de la huelga de los trabajadores metalúrgicos nucleados en Birlesik Metal, que el gobierno turco ha decidido aplazar por ¡60! días en violación flagrante del derecho de huelga, amparándose en una disposición emitida en los '80 por la Junta Militar.

Este ataque  a instancias de la patronal metalúrgica, obedece a la simpatía  que la huelga de 15 mil obreros de más de 40 empresas (y de 10 ciudades diferentes) estaba despertando entre todos los metalúrgicos del país. La entereza de los huelguistas constituía también una referencia potencial para todo el movimiento obrero turco.

La prohibición ilustra el carácter antiobrero y la naturaleza de clase del gobierno de Erdogan, que hace pocos meses adoptó idénticas represalias  contra  una huelga de 5600 obreros del vidrio. Medidas similares se han implementado contra los mineros.

Arjantin’de Sınıf Mücadeleci Sendikal Koordinasyon ve Partido Obrero (PO-İşçi Partisi) olarak Birleşik Metal İşçileri Sendikası çatısı altında düzenlenen grevin yasaklanmasını kınıyoruz. Türkiye hükümeti, 1980’li yıllarda askeri cuntanın yasalaştırdığı bir hükmü kullanarak grevi 60 gün erteleme yoluyla yasaklamış ve böylece grev hukukunu gözle görülür biçimde ayaklar altına almıştır.

Metal işverenlerinin greve saldırısı, aslında 10 şehirde 40’tan fazla işletmede 15 bin işçiyi kucaklayan bu grevin ülkenin öteki sendikalarda örgütlü olsun, sendikasız olsun diğer bütün metal işçileri nezdinde uyandırdığı sempati dolayısıyla yapılmıştır. Grev aynı zamanda daha genel olarak Türkiye işçi hareketince bir referans noktası olarak izleniyordu.

Bu yasak, daha birkaç ay önce 5.600 cam işçisinin grevini de yasaklamış olan Erdoğan hükümetinin işçi sınıfı karşıtı niteliğini ortaya koymakta, sınıf doğasını teşhir etmektedir. Benzer bir yasak madencilere karşı da uygulanmıştı.

We call on all the organisations of the international working class to express their clear condemnation of this shameful decision by the AKP government and their strong solidarity with the metalworkers of Turkey by any method they deem appropriate. Even the smallest message will help. We need to counter forcefully the ruthless exploitation the international working class is being subjected to. This is what the condemnation of government’s banning of the metalworkers’ strike in Turkey is about.

In queste circostanze specifiche, estremamente difficoltose in termini di tempi e di necessità finanziarie, l'EEK deve sostenere sulle sue spalle la battaglia per l'indipendenza politica della classe lavoratrice e per l'internazionalismo proletario, e parteciperà in maniera indipendente alle elezioni. La voce dell'EEK sarà la voce della rivoluzione; una voce minoritaria, e tuttavia inconciliabile e insubordinata. Abbiamo il dovere di mostrare l'unica via d'uscita, di discutere con i lavoratori il più possibile, di mobilitarli fin da ora per l'indomani della sconfitta dei sostenitori del memorandum, di reclutare e organizzare forze rivoluzionarie, di prepararci ed educarci da avanguardie combattenti per la battaglia storica che incombe. L'esistenza dell'EEK, la sua ragion d'essere, è la lotta incessante per la rivoluzione permanente internazionale, con le più diverse condizioni – a volte straordinariamente sfavorevoli, sfidando ostacoli e avversari sulla strada della liberazione sociale e del comunismo.

Dentro de los extremadamente ajustados tiempos y condicionamientos financieros que plantean las circunstancias, el EEK debe ponerse a los hombros la lucha por la independencia política de la clase obrera y del internacionalismo proletario y participar independientemente en las elecciones. La voz del EEK debe ser la de la revolución social, una voz minoritaria pero igualmente combativa e insubordinada. Debemos mostrar cuál es la única salida; abrir la discusión en las filas de los trabajadores tanto como podamos, movilizar, desde este mismo momento, al pueblo para intervenir frente a las secuelas que dejará la derrota de los que apoyan el memorándum; reclutar y organizar a las fuerzas revolucionarias, entrenar y educar a las masas y a nosotros mismos, como luchadores de vanguardia para las batallas históricas que se vienen. La razón de ser del EEK es la incansable lucha por la revolución permanente internacional bajo las más diversas, y a veces excepcionalmente desfavorables, condiciones, desafiando obstáculos y adversarios en el camino de la liberación social y el comunismo.

Η φωνή του ΕΕΚ πρέπει να γίνει η φωνή της κοινωνικής επανάστασης, φωνή μειοψηφική, έστω, αλλά ασυμβίβαστη κι ανυπόταχτη. Πρέπει να δείξουμε τη μόνη διέξοδο, να συζητήσουμε με τον λαό όσο πιο πλατιά μπορούμε, να τον κινητοποιήσουμε από τώρα για την επαύριο της ορατής ήττας των μνημονιακών, να στρατολογήσουμε και να οργανώσουμε δυνάμεις για την επανάσταση, να εκπαιδεύσουμε και να εκπαιδευτούμε σαν πρωτοπόροι μαχητές γαι τις ιστορικές μάχες που έρχονται. Ο τρόπος ύπαρξης, ο λόγος ύπαρξης του ΕΕΚ είναι η ασίγαστη πάλη για την διεθνή διαρκή επανάσταση κάτω από τους πιο διαφορετικούς, πολλές φορές εξαιρετικά δυσμενείς, όρους, αψηφώντας εμπόδια και αντίπαλους στον δρόμο της κοινωνικής απελευθέρωσης και του κομμουνισμού.

EEK’in sesi toplumsal devrimin sesi olmalıdır: bir azınlığın aykırı ve boyun eğmez sesi. Tek çıkış yolunu gösterebilmeliyiz. Mümkün olduğunca en geniş halk kitleriyle tartışabilmeli, halkı (şu andan itibaren) Memorandum savunucuları cephesinin yenilgisi sonrası için seferber etmeye girişmeli, devrimci güçleri kazanmalı ve örgütlemeli, kendimizi önümüzdeki tarihi savaşlarda öncü savaşçılar olarak eğitmeli, yetiştirmeliyiz. EEK’in var oluş tarzı, varlık nedeni, en değişik, hatta bazen aşırı derecede olumsuz koşullar altında, uluslararası düzeyde sürekli devrim için aralıksız mücadele etmek, toplumsal kurtuluş ve Komünizm’in önündeki engellere ve hasımlara meydan okumaktır.

The article below was written one year ago in January 2014 on the occasion of a conference in Turkey that brought together Syriza and the People’s Democracy Party (HDP) of Turkey, a new left-wing party that represents the fusion of countless Turkish socialist groups with the Kurdish movement. It was published then on RedMed. We are publishing it again because it makes crystal clear why Syriza is not the correct way forward for the Greek masses and why the EEK (Workers’ Revolutionary Party-Ergatiko Epanastatiko Komma) is running on a separate ticket in the general election of 25th January.

Within the specific, extremely tight in terms of time and of financial requirements circumstances, EEK must bear on its shoulders the struggle for the political independence of the working class and for the proletarian internationalism and participate independently at the elections. The voice of ΕΕΚ should be the voice of the social revolution, a minority voice, but nonetheless an incompatible and insubordinate. We must show the only way out, to discuss with the people as wide as we can, to mobilize the people –from this very moment– for the aftermath of the defeat of the memorandum supporters, to recruit and organize revolutionary forces, to train and educate ourselves as vanguard fighters for the historical battles to come. EEK’s mode of existence, its raison d'être, is the ceaseless struggle for international permanent revolution under the most diverse, sometimes exceptionally unfavorable conditions, defying obstacles and opponents on the road to social liberation and Communism.

La crisi política espanyola es desenvolupa amb lentitud, però de manera inexorable. En els últims cinc o sis mesos hem assistit a un conjunt de fets que aguditzen el procés de descomposició: la convulsió a les eleccions europees, el relleu a la monarquia, els escàndols de corrupció més greus de les últimes dècades i el conflicte entre l'Estat i Catalunya. El govern de Mariano Rajoy ha intentat trobar alleujament en les dades macroeconòmiques, però l'optimisme és una impostura: no hi ha indicis d'una recuperació sòlida, més enllà de les dades favorables de l'ocupació, explicables per l'activitat en el sector de serveis durant l’estiu. Elspropers mesos seran molt durs per al govern i decisius en els diferents terrenys de conflicte.

The Spanish political crisis is advancing slowly but inexorably. In the last five or six months we have witnessed a series of events that have exacerbated the process of decomposition: the turbulenceproduced by the European elections, the succession to the throne, the most serious corruption scandals to surface for generations, and the conflict between the central government and Catalonia. The right-wing government of Mariano Rajoy has sought relief in macroeceonomic data, but the optimism expressed is groundless: no figures are available to show a solid recovery, with the exception of the fall in unemployment, which is explicable on the basis of a seasonally favorable situation in the services sector. The period to come will be very difficult for the government, even decisive in different areas of conflict.

Bugün İspanya’nın özerk bölgelerinden Katalonya’da gayri resmi bir oylama yapılıyor. Başlangıçta bir bağımsızlık referandumu olarak tasarlanan bu oylama, İspanya merkezi devletinin baskısı altında sadece bir gövde gösterisi olmaya kadar geriledi. Aşağıdaki yazı, bir Katalan devrimci Marksisti tarafından RedMed ve Gerçek siteleri için kaleme alınmıştır. Yazının 4 Kasım’da kaleme alınmasından sonra, İspanya’nın Anayasa Mahkemesi, referandum karakterini bütünüyle yitirmiş ve gayri resmi bir eylem haline gelmiş olan bugünkü oylama hakkında bile yürütmeyi durdurma kararı almıştır. Bugün Katalonya’da ne olacağını kimse bilmiyor. Ama İskoçya bağımsızlık referandumundan sonra Katalonya’da dev kitlelerin desteğini alan bağımsızlık hareketi İspanya için de, Avrupa Birliği için de büyük bir siyasi önem taşıyor.

La crisis política española se desarrolla con lentitud, pero de manera inexorable. En los últimos cinco o seis meses hemos asistido a un conjunto de hechos que agudizan el proceso de descomposición: la convulsión en las elecciones europeas, el relevo en la monarquía, los escándalos de corrupción más graves de las últimas décadas y el conflicto entre el Estado y Cataluña. El gobierno derechista de Mariano Rajoy ha intentado encontrar alivio en los datos macroeconómicos, pero el optimismo es una impostura: no hay indicios de una recuperación sólida, más allá de los datos favorables del empleo, explicables por la actividad en el sector de servicios durante el verano. Los próximos meses serán muy duros para el gobierno y decisivos en los diferentes terrenos de conflicto.

En enero de 2013 el parlamento catalán aprobó una declaración de soberanía, que fue recurrida por el gobierno de Madrid y suspendida por el Tribunal Constitucional. En septiembre de este año el gobierno de Artur Mas aprobó la ley de consultas que debía ser el instrumento legal que permitiera la votación sobre la relación de Cataluña con el resto del Estado.

El 11 de septiembre se celebró el día nacional de Cataluña. El acto reivindicativo convocado en Barcelona debía ser una prueba del estado de ánimo de la población catalana después de muchos meses de debates, tensiones políticas y una abierta crisis institucional del Estado. Muchos comentaristas en Madrid preveían menor participación que en los dos años anteriores: las dos entidades sociales convocantes y las fuerzas políticas a favor de la consulta del 9 de noviembre no habrían podido contrarrestar el cansancio popular, la firmeza del gobierno de Mariano Rajoy yla desconfianza hacia las élites políticas. El último factor se habría acentuado unos meses antes, cuando Jordi Pujol -presidente de la Generalitat de Catalunya...

On the 25th and 26th of September, 2014, representatives of the Kurdish population living in Istanbul on the West of Turkey visited the south-eastern border region with Rojava, i.e. Syrian or South-western Kurdistan, in order to express their solidarity with the Kurdish population of Kobani, one of the three cantons of Rojava which is currently under attack from the ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant). Among them was a delegation of the DIP, the Revolutionary Workers’ Party of Turkey, which joined the mission as a manifestation of proletarian internationalism in solidarity with the oppressed Kurdish people. On Friday, a section of the mission crossed the border into Rojava to visit the people of the villages around the city of Kobani. There, the DIP delegation together with the Kurds and some other Turkish socialists, greeted and embraced the Forces of Protection (YPG), the force set up to defend the newly autonomous Rojava.

31 May was the anniversary of the eruption of the popular rebellion in Turkey that has gone under the name of Gezi Park around the world. On that anniversary, a virtual state of emergency was established in Istanbul, with 25 thousand police officers deployed around Taksim Square, the political, cultural and tourism centre of Istanbul, where the AKP government’s plan to build a shopping mall in the place of the park siding the square was frustrated by the revolt in 2013. Tear gas poisoning the atmosphere, people fainting, gas canisters targeted at demonstrators’ heads, one Italian journalist injured by a hit on his chest, a CNN International correspondent taken under custody while on air, an opposition MP almost being strangled by the police—all that Turkey has become accustomed to in recent years in terms of state repression and police brutality.

Following the 2nd Workers Euro-Mediterranean Conference, held in Athens on March 29-30, 2014, and on the basis of its conclusions, results, and prospects , the Balkan Socialist Center “Christian Rakovsky” waged an intensive political activity in the Balkans, connecting with activists involved in various struggles that erupted in the Peninsula in 2013 and 2014, from Bulgaria and Bosnia to Greece and Turkey, and intervening in on-going political-ideological debates within the social movements and the Left. Inescapably, the explosion in Ukraine and the rebellion in Donbass came into the center of our discussions in different meetings as well as the fight against the EU draconian measures imposed in the region and the fight against the rising fascism all over Europe, from Ukraine and Hungary to Greece and France.

The recent conquest by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) of large chunks of Iraq, starting with the city of Falluja and parts of Ramadi some six months ago, and then since 10 June, the successive taking of Mosul, the second city of Iraq, Tikrit, Saddam’s hometown, Tel Afar, where a large Turkmen population lives, and of the whole area stretching west of Baghdad towards the frontier with Jordan and Saudi Arabia is the result of a series of crimes committed by US and EU imperialisms, the reactionary Gulf states and the Tayyip Erdogan government in Turkey in their quest to consolidate their domination over the Middle East. It is thanks to the environment created by the misdeeds of these governments and the reactionary regime of the mullahs in Iran that the ISIL now controls, albeit tenuously, a population (6 million) and an area the full size of Jordan that stretches from Raqqa in Northeast Syria to the governerate of Diyala northeast of Baghdad near the Iranian border. It also has the potential of entering Jordan any moment and makes its threat felt in Lebanon, where it has been exploding highly destructive bombs in Hezbollah territory.

We, the participants of the organizational meeting of left and Marxist groups and organizations from Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine, believe that ceasing the civil war in Ukraine is necessary. The military conflict that followed the victory of the neo-liberals and nationalists at Kiev "euromaidan" claimed hundreds of lives and contributed to an unprecedented growth of chauvinism and xenophobia in Ukrainian and Russian society. This war allows the ruling class to consolidate Ukrainian society around their political regime, distracting workers of the Western and Eastern parts of the country from struggle for their social and political rights, and pushing them together to serve the interests of the bourgeoisie. Russian government, the European Union and the United States use the civil war in Ukraine for the same purpose: dying Donbass people are just pawns in their competition.

That the political parties have used the 25th May elections as a poll of people’s preferences for the November presidential elections – is not an interesting aspect. Nor the circus these parties made already long before the elections, by always new scandals related to words, false political attacks on each other, and the reciprocal disclosure of real robberies made by ‘very important persons’ from each of these parties: but never concluded with drastic punishment. (Some very few important members of these parties came to prison in the last 2-3 years, but this does not ‘compensate’ the deep social injustice and the infringement of the law and democracy by those who voted for the ‘rule of law’). Nor the fact that just this monkey business and the frequent information concerning the European unemployment and the absurd mismanagement of the common problems by the Bruxelles bureaucrats – have contributed to the dislike of the majority of population absent from the ballot.

El domingo 25 de mayo tuvo lugar un nuevo episodio de la crisis política española. Pocas horas después de haberse conocido los resultados de las elecciones al Parlamento Europeo, se producían las primeras consecuencias. El derechista Partido Popular (PP) -que gobierna con mayoría absoluta desde el otoño de 2011- decidía estudiar medidas para recuperar la confianza perdida entre los votantes y calmar la contestación interna; por su parte, el secretario general del Partido Socialista Obrero Español (PSOE) –socialdemócrata- anunciaba la convocatoria de un congreso extraordinario que intentará resolver las diversas crisis que debe afrontar. Ninguno de los dos partidos tenía motivos para celebrar el resultado electoral: en 2009 la suma de ambos alcanzó el 80%, ahora no llega al 50%; el PP ha perdido un tercio de su representación; para el PSOE la disminución es todavía mayor, y más grave, ya que ha sido incapaz de aprovechar el desgaste del partido del gobierno y además se trata de sus peores resultados en casi cuarenta años de democracia burguesa. Las elecciones del pasado domingo suponen una auténtica sacudida para el sistema político español, fuertemente bipartidista.

The winner of the EU election in DK is the rightwing, nationalist, racist, populist Danish Peoples Party (DPP). Out of a population of 5.6 million, they got 605.889 votes, i.e. 26.6% -out of the total seats of 13 they got 4 seats - only similar to the situation in France. Everybody else lost; the Social Democrats as head of the minority government for everybody to see has closed a historical chapter of being the dominant bourgeois workers party. Under the pressure of the capitalist crisis the party has turned neo-liberal including supporting every attack of the EU on the working class - losing the support of the workers majority.
