Solidaritätserklärung der OKDE-Spartakos mit den Kämpfen in der Türkei

Solidarity with the Struggle of the People of Turkey

Statement of the Organization of Communist Internationalists of Greece (OKDE-Spartakos), Greek section of the Fourth International.

The Organization of Communists Internationalists of Greece / OKDE-Spartakos expresses its solidarity with the struggle of the working class, the youth and the people of Turkey against the Erdogan government.

A struggle that, although it began as a mobilization against the commercialization of Gezi Park, has quickly acquired the features of a political struggle against the antipopular and authoritarian Erdogan government, which, after consolidating its position against the Kemalists has launched a policy of Islamic neo-conservatism that violates elementary social rights and democratic freedoms provoking the indignation of the vast majority of the democratic people of Turkey.

The uprising in Turkey reveals the real situation in the country. Behind the economic growth rates, the prosperity of numbers and the capitalists, lays the reality of poverty and oppression of the working class and the poor social strata.

For us it is clear that the uprising is deeply social and that it is part of the chain of revolts that started in the French suburbs back in 2005 and continued with December 2008 in Greece, the Arab Spring, the workers’ struggles against austerity in a series of European countries and the uprising of the British urban proletariat in 2011.

Erdogan’s propaganda against the uprising, has found many allies in the Greek mass media as well as in the Greek nationalist cycles and the Nazi gang of Golden Dawn. This development is not accidental. Last week, the Turkish militant Bulut Yayla was kidnapped in the streets of Athens and was handed in the Turkish police. This fact also, reveals the relations between the two governments and their apparatuses.

As the working people in both countries are severely hit by the offensive of the capital, solidarity between the two people is more necessary than ever. We stand by the side of the Turkish people in revolt and by the side of our comrades of the revolutionary left who wage the battle of barricades and ideas. We denounce the murderous police attacks against the protesters in the cities around the country.

The Turkish “spring” shows that our days bear the possibility for a social and political overthrow, away from the barbarism of capitalism, based on the power and self-organization of the oppressed.

– Victory to the revolt of the Turkish people

– Solidarity with the protesters in the streets

– Down with the Erdogan government. No trust to the Kemalists.

– Immediate release of the militant Bulut Yayla

– Long live the unity of the working class in Greece and Turkey

Proletarians of the world unite!

Protestations à Sanandaj pour la libération de militants ouvriers

Sanandaj, Iran, 17 mars 2013 :

Les familles des militants ouvriers arrêtés se sont rassemblées devant le bureau des « renseignements » à Sanandaj pour demander la libération immédiate de leurs proches. Les familles s’étaient déjà rassemblées au même lieu et pour défendre la même revendication depuis l’arrestation de Azadi, Hamed Mahmood-Nezhad, Behzad Faraj-Ollahi, Seyed Khaleh Hoseini, et Vafa Ghaderi le 7 mars par des brutes des « services de renseignement », arrestations vraisemblablement orchestrées pour éviter toute protestation des ouvrières et des ouvriers de Sanandaj à l’occasion du 8 mars. Selon un communiqué du Comité du Kurdistan du Parti Communiste-Ouvrier d’Iran, lors de la protestation du 16 mars le bâtiment des « services de renseignement » a été attaqué.

Le Comité de Coordination pour Aider à la Formation des Organisations Ouvrière rapporte que ces manifestations continueront chaque jour et que les familles prévoient de manifester devant le gouverneur du Kurdistan pour la libération de leurs proches.

Free Syrian Army greift befreite kurdische Stadt an

Posted by entdinglichung - 21. November 2012

Quelle: Support Kurds in Syria, die Free Syrian Army als Handlanger der Hegemonialpolitik der Türkischen Republik:

Two armed groups said to be affiliated to the Free Syrian Army suffered heavy losses on Monday when clashes broke out between these groups and People’s Defense Units (YPG) forces in the West Kurdistan city of Serêkaniyê. The armed groups attacked the people in the city as they took to the streets for the rally organized by the Supreme Kurdish Council.

According to reports received, bodies of 14 dead members of these groups were delivered to their side by YPG forces, while at least 12 others are reported to have been killed in clashes which are reported to have lasted all day. Among those killed are reportedly three leaders of the El Sam armed group, Ali Aksud, Mecid Abdullah and Fair Haci Rahim.

The operation launched by the YPG in the area is reported to be still on.

YPG members Xalid Ömer Hamo (31), Salah Eyo ?exo (40) and Ehmed Sîno Qewas (29) and Kurdish security forces member Sileman Sino (28) lost their life in clashes.

Since hundreds of members of Free Syrian Army entered the city over Turkey on 8 November, the city has been bombed several times by forces of the Syrian regime, killing at least ten civilians and wounding around 70 others in the last one week. Around 50 houses were demolished in the attacks which forced eleven thousand people migrate from the region.

Repression gegen 69 GewerkschafterInnen in der Türkei

Posted by entdinglichung - 28. September 2012

Quelle: LabourStart

Turkey: 69 trade union leaders to be tried for ‚terrorism‘

On 4 October, 69 leaders from Turkey’s public sector union KESK, will stand trial on terrorism charges for merely engaging in trade union work. This is part of a clear strategy from the authorities to bring the union to its knees. While judicial harassment of unions, and in particular of KESK and its affiliates, has become endemic in Turkey over the past year or so, the court case against KESK has been dragging on for years. The evidence held against those who stand trial is at best flimsy: participation in trade union events and activities (of which photos and videos are being kept on file as „proof“), attending demonstrations or press conferences, participating in strikes, printouts of anonymous reports, illegally tapped phone calls that merely concern trade union-related issues etc.. Of all 69 leaders of KESK who stand trial on 4 October, none has ever been involved in any action related to or resulting in any violence whatsoever. The ITUC, ETUC, EI, EPSU and others in the international labour movement are very concerned that they will be sent to prison as terrorists merely because they stand up for the rights of Turkish public sector workers, including those belonging to minority groups.

Vor 20 Jahren: Mykonos-Morde in Berlin

Posted by entdinglichung - 24. September 2012

vor 20 Jahren, am 17. Dezember 1992 ermordeten Agenten des iranischen Geheimdienstes im Berliner Restaurant Mykonos vier leitende Mitglieder der Demokratischen Partei Kurdistans (DPK-I), Sadegh Scharafkandi, Fattah Abdoli, Homayoun Ardalan und Nouri Dehkordi, nachfolgend dokumentiert ein Artikel von der Webseite von Workers‘ Liberty:

Iran: On the twentieth anniversary of the Mykonos restaurant assassinations

This article, by Morad Shirin of the Iranian Revolutionary Marxists‘ Tendency, was published on the Marxist Revival website. For more on Marxist Revival, see here.

Twenty years ago, on September 17 1992, three Kurdish opposition leaders and another activist were assassinated by the Iranian regime. These assassinations in Berlin were part of the regime’s campaign of eliminating opposition leaders – even those exiled in Europe. Although a number of people were jailed for this act of state-sponsored terrorism, the real architects of the plan are still part of the ruling elite in Iran.

On the evening of September 17, at 10:47 p.m., two masked men burst into the back room of Mykonos restaurant and began shooting at the four Kurdish exiles around the table. Three of them died where they fell: Dr Sadegh Sharafkandi, the Secretary General of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI), Fattah Abdoli and Homayoun Ardalan – both PDKI Central Committee members. In addition to these leaders, Nouri Dehkordi, a Kurdish political activist serving as their translator, was struck by seven bullets and later died in hospital.

Following a four-year trial a German court found Kazem Darabi, an Iranian national who had ties with the regime’s embassy in Berlin, and Lebanese citizen Abbas Rhayel, guilty of murder and sentenced them to life in prison. Two other Lebanese nationals, Youssef Amin and Mohamed Atris, were convicted of being accessories to murder.

Above all, in its April 10 1997 ruling, the court implicated leader Seyyed Ali Khamenei and ‚president‘ Ali-Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. It also issued an international arrest warrant for the Iranian regime’s intelligence minister, Ali Fallahian.

The court’s unequivocal declaration that the regime’s elite had ordered this assassination followed evidence given at the trial by Farhad Abdulghasem Mesbahi. Mesbahi, the former head of the regime’s intelligence station in Paris, gave first-hand evidence of how the Mykonos assassinations were planned and executed. He provided details about the Committee for Special Operations which is „… a small group made up of the supreme leader, the president, the foreign minister, the minister of intelligence, and the chief of the Revolutionary Guards.“ That means Khamenei, Rafsanjani, Ali-Akbar Velayati, Fallahian and Mohsen Rezai.

The Mykonos assassinations were part of a campaign that included the murder of Abdul Rahman Ghassemlou, PDKI’s Secretary General from 1973, in Vienna in July 13 1989. And a month later, on August 26 1989, Bahman Javadi (better known as Gholam Keshavarz) was assassinated in Cyprus in front of his wife, mother and brother. He was a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Iran.

Soon after the war with Iraq ended, starting in July 1988, the regime massacred tens of thousands of political prisoners. It assassinated many oppositionists in Iran as part of what became known as the „chain murders“. It also carried out a number of terrorists atrocities like the bombing of AMIA, the Jewish centre in Buenos Aires in 1994.

Twenty years on, and despite their subsequent faction fights, the people implicated at Mykonos trial are still all important figures within the regime. The embassies of the Iranian regime are still continuing their surveillance and spying activities against exiled political activists of the opposition.
