The KKE denounces the ongoing state repression and the persecution against organizations of the people’s movement, cadres and members of parties and organizations on the part of the Erdogan government.
We denounce, in particular, the new police operation in Gezi Park, which led to the mass arrests of members of the CC and other cadres of the CP of Turkey, the Party of Labour (EMEP) and mass organizations.
The representatives of capital and its power are deeply mistaken if they believe that it is possible to suppress in this way the people’s resistance against exploitation, oppression and repression, which go hand in hand with capitalism
The KKE expresses its determined solidarity with the all the struggling Turkish people. We demand the immediate release of those arrested and the removal of every restriction on free trade union and political activity.
