Danıştay’ın Ayasofya’yı müzeden yeniden camiye dönüştürme kararı ve kararın alınmasında başrolü oynayan Cumhurbaşkanı Erdoğan’ın bu kararı hemen onaylaması, milliyetçi gafleti ve dinci tahammülsüzlüğü gösteren gerici bir harekettir. Bu karar Doğu Akdeniz’deki ve Ege Denizi’ndeki milliyetçi rekabetin değirmenine su taşıyor ve bölgede kanlı bir savaş riskini arttırıyor.

Incumbent president Andrzej Duda won in the second round of presidential election with the result of 51.03%. 68% of voters went to the polling stations on July 12th, which was a record turnout. Andrzej Duda associated with post Solidarity movement conservative party Law and Justice (Prawo I Sprawiedliwość (PiS)) was voted with the majority of labourers, farmers, unemployed people and residents of small towns. Rafał Trzaskowski associated with post Solidarity Neo-liberal opposition mainly Citizens Platform party (Platforma Obywatelska (PO)) was voted by entrepreneurs, managers and residents of large cities.

Parties, groups and left-wing publications from around the world have been sending in messages of solidarity to Şiar Rişvanoğlu and the DIP (Revolutionary Workers Party) of whihc he is a member. We have already published messages from the Polibureau of the EEK (Workers’ Revolutionary Party, Greece) and from two Argentine organisations (see previous entries). A successful petition has also been launched in Turkey itself and the process of collection of signatures is still going on. Here are some other messages.

La procedencia del ataque es indudable. El gobierno de Erdogan, en retroceso ante la población, viene impulsando una feroz campaña chauvinista, como lo acaba de poner en evidencia la conversión de Agha Sofía, una reliquia arquitectónica bizantina, en mesquita.

We have lent our support and ideas to the anti-racist popular revolt numerous times in these pages. We have pointed out to the absence of organized labor as a whole (that is, beyond notable individual examples) from the scene as a major obstacle, and accused the union bureaucrats for stifling rank-and-file activity for the fear of this sort of activity getting out of their hands. The participation of the working class with its full strength, autonomous organizations and demands, we have said, would both carry the revolt further by a great leap. Finally, we pointed to the International Longshore and Warehouse Union’s (ILWU) massive Juneteenth rally in Oakland, California as an important first step, but only a first step.

On July 20th, Monday, a second major step has occurred. Organized under the label “Strike for Black Lives”, various workers belonging to a number of labor unions took action in support of the popular revolt in some 200 cities across the country.

Η Βαλκανική επανάσταση και η παγκόσμια επανάσταση θα φέρουν χώρες μαζί στην προσπάθειά τους να εκπαιδεύσουν τις νέες γενιές της εργατικής τάξης όχι μόνο στο πεδίο της αδελφοσύνης των εθνών και θρησκειών αλλά επίσης στις τέχνες, την μουσική και τη λογοτεχνία. Είναι τότε που οι εγγονοί και οι εγγονές των εργατών της Τουρκίας, Τούρκοι και Κούρδοι, και της Ελλάδας, Ρουμ και Γιουνάν, θα πάρουν μαζί την Ιστανμπούλ/Κωνσταντινούπολη για να χαρούν την ομορφιά της Αγίας Σοφίας, που δεν είναι ούτε ένας καθεδρικός ναός, ούτε τζαμί αλλά η ενσάρκωση της ομορφιάς. Μετά την τελική κατάκτηση, η Αγία Σοφία και η Σουλεϊμανίγιε θα απλώσουν τα χέρια μεταξύ τους καλώντας τo Ναό της Ayodhya και το Τζαμί του Μπάμπρι για να αγκαλιαστούν ευτυχισμένοι για πάντα.

Balkan devrimi ve dünya devrimi işçi sınıfının genç kuşaklarının eğitilmesi için çeşitli ülkeler arasında işbirliğini geliştirecektir. Bu kuşaklar sadece halkların kardeşliği konusunda değil, sanat, müzik ve edebiyat konusunda da iyi eğitilecektir. İşte o zaman, Türkiye işçilerinin torunları Kürdüyle Türküyle, Yunanistam işçilerinin torunları da Yunanıyla Rumuyla bir araya gelerek İstanbul ya da Konstantiniyye, hangi adla anılırsa anılsın, bu muhteşem kentte, ne katedral ne cami olan, sadece güzelliğin cisimleşmesi olan bir Ayasofya’nın güzelliğini birlikte derin derin içlerine çekeceklerdir.

The Berkeley candidate Terry Taplin, on the other hand, claims to be independent, and moreover, has named his platform a “Labor Slate”. This, we understand, is at least a formal break with the Democratic Party, the shadow of which has been hovering over the DSA for long. We deem independent candidates running against age-old Democrats under the banner of labor to be a positive development. In our numerous written materials, we have put forward the slogan of a “clean independent slate for a workers’ party, workers’ candidates, and a workers’ government”. We therefore should pay attention to this move.

The Balkan revolution and the world revolution will bring countries together in their effort to educate the young generations of the working class not only in the domain of the fraternisation of nations and religions but also in the arts and music and literature. It is then that the grandsons and granddaughters of the workers of Turkey, Turkish and Kurdish, and of Greece, Rum and Yunan, will get together in Istanbul/Constantinople to enjoy the beauty of the Hagia Sophia, which is neither a cathedral nor a mosque but beauty incarnated.

After the final conquest, Hagia Sophia and Süleymaniye will extend arms to each other and summon the Aydohya Temple and the Babri Mosque to embrace in bliss forever.

Η απόφαση του τουρκικού Συμβουλίου της Επικρατείας για μετατροπή της Αγίας Σοφίας από μουσείο σε τζαμί και η άμεση επικύρωσή της από τον πρόεδρο Ερντογάν -που έχει τον κύριο λόγο- είναι μια αντιδραστική πράξη εθνικιστικής τύφλας και θρησκευτικής μισαλλοδοξίας, που ρίχνει λάδι στους εθνικιστικούς ανταγωνισμούς στην ανατολική Μεσόγειο και το Αιγαίο, αυξάνοντας τους κινδύνους μιας αιματηρής πολεμικής σύρραξης στην περιοχή.

The decision by the Turkish Council of State to convert Hagia Sophia from museum back into a mosque, and its immediate ratification by President Erdogan - who had played the main role to the decision- is a reactionary act of nationalist blindness and religious intolerance. It is adding fuel to the fire of nationalist rivalries in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Aegean Seas, increasing the risks of a bloody war in the region.

We need to learn from this unfortunate incident. Turkish has an apt saying for such situations: “One scourge is worth more than a thousand counsels.” If only, of course, one is ready to learn from that scourge! Unfortunately, despite all the calamities suffered in recent years, a variety of movements that claim to subscribe to the heritage of the Fourth International are adamant in not learning. We optimistically expect that this will not be the case this time.

Trump is raising the stakes. From the position of “president of law and order”, he is turning into the presidential candidate of Ku Klux Klan. He used the 4th of July, the national holiday celebrating America’s independence, gained in 1776 through a revolutionary war, to set the terms of his strategic response to the immense social movement that brought millions of people out on the streets after the death of George Floyd in Minnesota at the end of May. In the speeches he made on Mount Rushmore on Friday the 3rd and at the White House on Saturday the 4th, he engaged in a headlong attack on the entire mass movement, not even distinguishing between those who took to the streets to demand justice and finally create a solution to the unceasing police brutality against African Americans using the classical methods of mass demonstrations and the element that tended towards looting, arson and other kinds of unorganised and wanton violence.

Elon Musk, the CEO of high-tech giants SpaceX and Tesla, has acclaimed a celebrity status around the world over the last few years with his company’s supposedly green-friendly products, eccentric behavior, media personality, and his supposed “innovativeness”. He himself has done everything in his power to enhance this boastful public persona, from launching space shuttles “for fun” to naming his new-born child after a computer code. As a result, this sassy poster-boy of the Silicon Valley bourgeoisie is revered as an innovative miracle-man in a number of business and high-tech R&D circles. His South African origin and occasional appeals for green energy or universal basic income lure some of the leftist intellectuals around the world to sympathize with him.

Bu halk isyanı, federal ve eyalet çapında hükümetleri halka karşı planladıkları askerî operasyonlardan vazgeçmeye, çeşitli büyük şehir hükümetlerini ise polis bütçelerini kısıp kaynakları siyahî, Latino vb. nüfusa yönlendirmeye zorladı.

The murder of George Floyd sparked off immense protests and militant actions against racism and police terror across the United States. The people’s uprising forced the federal and state governments to roll back their military operations against the people in revolt, and important city governments to curtail their policing budgets and channel the resources to people of color. Rank-and-file workers have demonstrated their solidarity numerous times. Many members have participated in rallies and protests in their union shirts. The subway drivers’ union in Minneapolis cut off all transportation the day the uprising began in the city. In many major cities, bus drivers refused to take the arrested rebels to jails or police stations. However, union banners have been remarkably absent from the protests so far. Organized labor as a whole has not yet lent its hand to the people in revolt because of the union bureaucracy’s unconditional backing of the Democratic Party and stifling of rank-and-file militancy.
