Our Comrades, Our Friends, Our People!
OUR MISSION IN 2021
MAKING HOPE INVINCIBLE
MEANS TO BRING OUT THE ORGANISED POWER OF THE PEOPLE
THE UNORGANISED PEOPLE ARE NOTHING
THE ORGANISED PEOPLE ARE A GREAT POWER
In a process in which no one in our country dares to utter a single slogan against imperialism and fascism, we have made HOPE INVINCIBLE WITH OUR RESISTANCE FIGHTERS WHO MADE THEIR OWN BODIES INTO ROBES AND GUITARS.
And All The Peoples Of The World,
Our poor people, who will put an end to the persecution in Anatolia, the peoples of the world, who have turned their backs onimperialism and are our greatest bulwark against imperialism, are entering a New Year: 2021!
A new and hopeful year in the history of resistance of the peoples of the world!
In our 51-year history, we wrote the pages of the Anatolian revolution… We wrote it in our blood. We wrote it in our faith, which does not give up secrets. We have written with devotion to our martyrs who have entrusted us with our values, our traditions, our future.
We have written it with our firm belief in hope and victory, with our hatred of the enemy, with our historical and political right, and we will continue to write, we will win…
Because the consciousness of history is our most powerful weapon. We have carried this weapon with honour to this day, and we will continue to carry it.
We have shown imperialism and the oligarchy that they cannot make us surrender us. We said we would raise up hope, we raised up hope. IT’S TIME TO MAKE HOPE INVINCIBLE.
We Will Make Hope Invincible!
Once again in 2020, we have not given up the flag of our hope, we have not dropped it on the ground, we have always carried it forward.
Now that we have reached this stage… we have declared the invincibility of our hope with all our might.
And in 2021, we will declare hope invincible. Hope is the power of the people, we will build a path to power by the power of the people.
WE HAVE BEEN TESTED, WE HAVE MADE OURSELVES KNOWN, WE HAVE RESISTED, WE HAVE BEEN INVINCIBLE AGAINST ALL KINDS OF CRUELTY…
THE ARROWS OF CRUELTY NO LONGER WORK ON US!
BECAUSE WE ARE THE PEOPLE, WE CANNOT BE WORN OUT!
HISTORY WRITES US, WE WRITE HISTORY!
In 2020, the Anatolian revolution experienced one of the most important conflicts in its history. We’ve crossed an important historical threshold. We have once again declared our invincibility against all attacks of oppression and destruction at the cost of four martyrs. We crossed this historical threshold with our martyrs, with our courage and determination to pay the price.
The right of the resistance was a victory, we won this victory in 2020. We did not compromise, we did not enter into an agreement, we trusted our own self-confidence and our people.
We said that we are making hope grow, and we have made the hope that we have raised higher for 51 years invincible now.
Imperialism and oligarchy have made PLANS to destroy us.
They have raided our institutions many times. They have detained our people over and over again. When they were released from prison, they repeatedly detained them outside the prison door, repeatedly arrested them.
They published lists, put prizes on our heads…
They tried to create collaborators with their passion to inflict defeat, made them sign false statements, arrested hundreds of people.
They banned our concerts, attacked our actions.
They couldn’t even stand us washing the bodies of our dead. It wasn’t enough, they attacked our graves.
They used systematic torture to intimidate our people. They broke our people’s arms, backs, plucked their hair, burst their eyes, dragged our death fast resisters on the ground.
They blocked the treatment of our sick prisoners.
They didn’t give books to our prisoners…
They wanted to put us under complete siege and destroy us… They wanted to cut off our inseparable and deep-rooted ties with the people. They wanted to stifle internationalist solidarity. In other words, they used all the methods that history had seen or not seen for total destruction.
BUT THEY FAILED!
It was our declared historical and political right and immortality. They couldn’t end hope.
WITH OUR JUSTICE WARRIORS AGAINST THE IMPOSITION OF PERMISSION FROM THE AUTHORITIES AND CONCILIATION;
WE RESPONDED WITH INTERNATIONALIST SOLIDARITY AGAINST THE ATTACK AIMED AT ISOLATING US.
WE DIDN’T ASK FOR PERMISSION FROM ANYONE.
WE DIDN’T COMPROMISE WITH ANYONE, ANYWHERE.
BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT;
COMPROMISE IS CORRUPTION.
SEEKING PERMISSION CAUSES YOU TO ROT AWAY.
COMPROMISE AND CORRUPTION ARE MIRED IN THE SWAMP OF REFORMISM.
YOU MAY STRUGGLE BUT YOU CAN’T ESCAPE.
According to Marxism-Leninism, the liberation of the proletariat from exploitation and political slavery is possible by the elimination of the entire capitalist system by Revolution, along with its political superstructure.
The strategy and tactics of the revolutionary organisation must also be shaped in the light of this view.
In contrast, reformism, although adorned with many fancy words and phrases, argues that with reforms to be made by preserving the capitalist system, workers can get rid of exploitation, so that a system shaped by the conciliation and brotherhood of all classes can be established;
Ideology and policy to RECONCILE THE CLASSES,
To PUT A BRAKE ON the action of the proletariat,
To IMPRISON them in the bourgeois world,
And the system of exploitation is based on making the power of murderers live forever.
Entering the 52nd year of our history, we have repeatedly shown that we will not surrender, dying when necessary.
The most important cornerstones of this are in 1984 against the attack of the junta of 1980 aimed at crushing and destroying us; in 1996 when socialism was attacked by revisionism all around the world; in NATO’s “change your beliefs or die!” in the face of its policy in 2000-2007, and finally in the face of attacks carried out to end the faith and hope in socialism and completely erase it from the face of the earth in 2019-2020, the death fast is our resistance.
THE WARRIORS FOR JUSTICE
AND EBRU TIMTIK BARRICADED THEMSELVES AGAINST INJUSTICES AND ATTACKS AIMED AT DESTROYING US.
Our Resistance For Justice And Slogan “SHOULDER TO SHOULDER AGAINST FASCISM!” Revived Revolutionary Solidarity In A Process In Which This Slogan Was Forgotten.
It Showed That The Most Powerful Weapon Of The Peoples Is Solidarity.
The resistance for justice, in which AKP fascism tried to isolate, terrorise and drown out its voice by censorship, overcame all obstacles.
If we make a brief summary;
1- 2,951 representatives of revolutionary parties and organisations from 51 countries of the world, legal organisations, Bar Associations, writers, artists, poets, musicians and intellectuals showed internationalist solidarity.
2 — in Turkey and Europe, 7,865 actions and demonstrations were held to support the Resistance of Grup Yorum, up Mustafa Koçak, the people’s lawyers, the death fast by free prisoners.
3– International Lawyers Association (UIA) representing two million lawyers from 110 countries around the world),
39 of the 79 Bar Associations in Turkey supported the just struggle of Ebru Timtik and Aytaç Unsal, lawyers of the people who went on the death fast with a demand for a fair trial, and demanded justice.
4 — 15,352 intellectuals, artists, musicians, politicians, journalists, legal organisations, Bar Associations have signed signatures to accept the demands of the resistance to justice from all over the world, from Haiti to Saudi Arabia, from Italy to Pakistan, from the United States to Japan.
5 — Almost every day, actions were performed all over Europe in dozens of forms, from marches, chaining themselves to railings, tent actions and rallies, from singing folk songs to composing, from reading poetry to writing poetry. Protests and rallies in front of the consulates of Turkey shouted out the demands of the resistance.
More than 3,000 people carried out hunger strikes in support at different times and lengths.
In Dozens Of Countries Of The World, Especially In Europe, There Were Tributes And Commemorations For Ebru Timtik.
People’s lawyers Ebru Timtik and Aytaç Unsal were given honorary memberships and awards expressing respect for the resistance for justice.
RESISTANCE ESTABLISHED CLARITY
REVOLUTIONARIES AND ENEMIES OF REVOLUTION
SEPARATED BY SHARP LINES
Our resistance, on the one hand, has created a world-scale line of ownership and resistance; on the other hand, it has revealed the true faces of those who fled from the resistance.
Our battle for justice has forced some of them to join the line of resistance. Or, like KESK, they went under the wing of the murderous Soylus and their like and became partners in the policy of purging us.
We have crushed opportunism, reformism and Kurdish nationalism with our policies, resistance and ideology.
UNITED BY THE ORGANISED POWER OF THE PEOPLE
REVOLUTIONARY VIOLENCE IS INVINCIBLE!
President Tayyip Erdogan admitted that one of the three incidents that caused instability during the AKP government was the punıshment wıth death of Mehmet Selim Kiraz, the prosecutor who protected Berkin Elvan’s killers.
For this, he took the life of Mustafa Koçak as revenge.
Their fear was the response that the people’s justice found in the people. Their fear was that revolutionary violence met up wıth the people, organised the people and turned them into a force.
He demonstrated these fears in his attack to destroy our ideological identity by physical force.
The fact that armed struggle is fundamental does not mean that other means and forms of struggle are secondary or insignificant.
On the contrary, armed struggle is not organised alone. In fact, it is not consciousness in the true sense that it creates.
It has an effect. It makes you think.
Real consciousness is consciousness that makes it organised.
Armed struggle must be integrated with other forms of economic, democratic and political struggle, complementing each other.
Otherwise, the peoples in many countries of the world where they established their own power would still have it.
Revolution is a programmed business. Revolution is a claim to power. The programme is the embodiment of this claim.
This is the difference between us and the movements that set out to revolutionise the world, fought an armed struggle, paid the price with their people, but at the last point buried their weapons in concrete, the hopes and trust of their people in parliament for the sake of being a parlıamentary deputy.
Our programme is where our ideological clarity, our ideological independence, our ideological solidity live and are nurtured.
The same clarity applies in terms of forms of struggle: “will we confront fascism and imperialism with violence, or will we confront the resistance of the masses?” The question is actually a question posed by those who are confused.
A false dilemma.
Many years ago, the revolutionary movement formulated a slogan on how to conduct this struggle from a point of view:
“Revolutionary Violence, United By The Organised Power Of The People, Is Invincible!” This is what we will confront fascist terror wıth. Neither the mass dimension of this nor the dimension of revolutionary violence can be abandoned.
We will never give up this programme, our claim to power, our anti-oligarchic, anti-imperialist revolutionary war.
We are entering 2021 with great responsibility, strength and hope.
In 2021, we will continue to make the war the people’s, to make the people fight.
We know that not giving up means to make a claim. And it is unclear when this claim will rout the enemy in the protracted people’s war.
What we need are the cadres that will organise, perpetuate and spread our armed struggle, people’s organisation and people’s war.
Peole like Leyla and Bilgehan are commanders.
No policy, organisation, strategy has a chance to live, grow and take power without a people and revolution in it.
We are full of the people and revolution from head to toe.
We are children of the people, we fight for the people and we want the power of the people.
We will organise, arm and make our people fight with people’s assemblies, people’s militias.
Even if we are one person for this, the place we are is a place of organisation and war for us. We will create these positions, especially in our poor neighbourhoods.
In the people of Turkey, before the people of the world, we will carry the hope of socialism to power.
We thank our martyrs and prisoners who have given us our history and our resistance that has shaken the world. We will surely give them the power for which they have sacrificed their lives and freedom.
For this, we will base our backs on education, our minds on our ideology, our hearts on the love of the people and the homeland.
We will continue to organise the armed struggle until we wipe our last enemy off the face of the earth with the trigger drawn by our minds.
Even if we are physically destroyed, we will not ask for permission, we will not compromise, we will fight the people, we will popularise the war!
Because we’re from Kızıldere. We come from an ideological background that creates a movement that will shake the world again where we disappear.
Since Kızıldere, we have faced attacks of ideological destruction. Imperialism decided to physically destroy us when it realised that it could not make us surrender by “change your thoughts or die”. 2020 has been a year in which we have also wasted this policy and wasted the threshold of destruction. The enemy demanded complete surrender. We have not been compromised, we have not been subservient, we have not been conciliatory.
In light of this ideology;
WE WILL MAKE HOPE INVINCIBLE!
THAT’S THE TASK AHEAD!
WE’LL DO IT WITH THE ORGANISED POWER OF THE PEOPLE!
REVOLUTIONARY VIOLENCE, UNITED BY THE ORGANISED POWER OF THE PEOPLE, IS INVINCIBLE!
THE PEOPLE’S POWER IS THE PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLIES AND THE PEOPLE’S MILITIA!
WE WILL ORGANISE THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE WITH THE ASSEMBLIES OF THE PEOPLE; WITH OUR COACHES, WE WILL STRIKE THE ENEMY!
PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLIES ARE OUR POWER; PEOPLE’S MILITIAS ARE OUR WEAPON!
IN 2021, IT WILL BE OURS, AND WE WILL MAKE HOPE INVINCIBLE!
WITH THIS BELIEF, WITH THIS DETERMINATION, WITH THESE HOPES, WE CELEBRATE YOUR NEW YEAR WITH THE BELIEF THAT WE WILL ACHIEVE OUR GOALS TOGETHER AND MAKE THEM A REALITY TOGETHER AS WE ENTER 2021.
