The Central Committee (CC) of Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) has released a statement following the call of President Erdoğan to hold early elections in Turkey on June 24.

TKP has made a statement entitled ‘This social order will be toppled down - People have a choice’ following the call of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan for early presidential and parliamentary elections on June 24, 2018, after his meeting with the leader of the fascist National Movement Party (MHP). This party is expected to form an alliance with Erdoğan's Justice and Development Party (AKP) in the upcoming elections. Both elections had initially been scheduled for November 2019.

Russian Communist Workers’ Party - Communist Party of the Soviet Union (RKRP-CPSU) assessed the imperialist escalation and the position of communists.

The Political Council of the Central Committee of the Russian Communist Workers’ Party - Communist Party of the Soviet Union (RKRP-CPSU) issued a statement on April 16th regarding its position on the escalation of imperialist war. Under the title ‘Down with capitalism proliferating wars! The future of mankind can only be socialist!’, the statement evaluated the cases of Skripal provocation followed by the attack towards Syria, determening the imperialist rivalry and the position that must be taken by communists.

On Tuesday, April 17, unions, workers and students rallied in thousands outside the Courthouse of Athens in solidarity with the arrested young militants, who were injured, kidnapped and arrested during the antiimperialist demonstration of Monday, April 16. When the arrested militants were brought to the courthouse, they were welcomed with slogans against imperialism and applause of support and “booed” the police.

In spite of no evidence against them and that they were in fact assaulted by the police, the arrested militants are accused with very heavy charges and were given trial date for April 25. They were set free, pending trial.

After the bombardment of the imperialist governments of the USA, the UK and France in Syria, we can easily see who are the friends and who are the enemies of these imperialist forces. The violent attack with tear gas and other chemicals implemented by SYRIZA/ANEL Government against the protest action of anti-imperialist youth in Greece clearly proves that this government has an unconditional support for all the imperialist policies that kill thousands of innocent people in every corner of the world.

Towards the party of the New type – along the Leninist path.

INTRODUCTION

The Great October Socialist Revolution – is the best known revolution in the world, whereas its influence over the development of mankind it is the greatest among all revolutions known. Whatever the attitude to the Russian Revolution might be, any more or less literate human in the world has at least an idea of what happened in Russia in 1917 and who Lenin was.

There is a popular joke that the gun shot from «Avrora» battleship was the most powerful artillery shots ever produced in the world. There was only one discharge of the ship’s rear gun in the direction of the Tsars’ palace where the bourgeois Provisional Government held its meeting. Though it was a dry shot, the whole world of capitalism has been still flinching when recalling this event.

The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), representing 92 million members in 126 countries around the world, reiterates its internationalist solidarity with workers in France who will strike on 19 April.

In an international context where capitalists, multinationals and European bourgeoisies attack labor rights, promote anti-worker policies, reduce pensions and wages, dismantle social gains and union rights, European workers must organize their own counter attack. Today, it is more than ever necessary for workers to coordinate their struggles globally, under the values of internationalism and class solidarity.

On Monday April 16th riot police forces launched an attack against demonstrating university and high school students and workers using tear gas and stun grenades in the center of Athens near the Truman statue which students went to tear down in a symbolic move of condemnation of American imperialism that together with Great Britain and France carried out the recent intervention in Syria.

In a statement from the Press Bureau of the CC of the KKE it reads:

The KKE condemns the attack of the riot police forces using tear gas and stun grenades against a demonstration that was organized by trade unions, university and high school student associations against the imperialist attack on Syria. The result were two arrests and two injured protestors.

The World Federation of Trade Unions firmly denounces the fatal work “accidents” that happened recently in the mines of the cities Klos and Bulqiza of Albania and cost the lives of two workers. Over the last six months, six miners have lost their life in these cities where Albania’s chromium mines are located.

The WFTU, on behalf of 92 million workers that it represents in the 5 continents, demands from the competent authorities the implementation of health and safety measures inside the chromium mines. We condemn the fact that the workers are said to be responsible for the accidents. The real culprits for the fatal accidents are the indifference of the authorities for the protection of the workers’ life, as well as the pursuit of the maximum profit through the intensification of their work.
