After the elections on 7 June 2015, fascist attacks by the Tayyip Erdoğan-led AKP / MHP front continued to intensify. With these attacks the fascist bloc tries to smash the united front of the revolutionary-democratic forces, to spread hopelessness and to stifle the Kurdish people's desire for freedom. On the other hand, antifascists and anti-colonialists, resist under all circumstances and with all means and forms of struggle by holding the position and ranks. The main subject of this resistance are we, the Marxist-Leninist communists, as well as the Kurdish national movement and the revolutionary parts of the labouring left. For this reason, we are first and foremost attacked by the fascist dictatorship, which has the aim to separate our links with the progressive popular masses. Doubtlessly, this is a difficult period with many losses. And yet, although the countless arrests have also led to a loss of quality, the fascist state has not achieved its goal. The revolutionary-democratic front could not be broken and the resistance of the revolutionary movement in Turkey and Kurdistan continues. Even though the mass movement was weakened, it could not be broken and has gone into defenses. Neither the prisons nor the massacres nor the state of emergency have reached their goal. As a revolutionary vanguard, we were determined and have passed into active self-defense during this time. The progressive mass movement proves its existence at every opportunity and went to the streets. In this entire period, the greatest achievement is that the united fighting fronts were defended and new ones were built, such as the military units of HBDH and KBDH.
The election of the fascist ruling bloc on June 24 marks the beginning of a new phase. These elections are not just any elections. If the dictatorship loses them, the whole fascist rulers will be held accountable for their heavy guilt against the people. It is obvious that electoral cheatings and provocation are used to prevent an electoral loss. What madness will be used by the dictatorship in a possible loss of election is not foreseeable. Yet, Turkish army has bombed civilian villages in Qandil, which is a free area by the Kurdish freedom movement. Their strategy is to let the HDP (Democratic People's Party) fall under the electoral hurdle in order to gain an absolute majority in parliament. On the other hand, attacks are expected against the IYI-party, which had split off from the MHP, to reduce its electoral potential.
The fascists do not have their old powers anymore. The bourgeois front is divided and the economic situation of the country is getting worse every day. Unemployment is rising steadily and poverty is rising as inflation rises. More and more people are committing suicide due to incompatible debts. There is an incredible fusion within the working masses and the fascist rule does not manage to prevent this by economic means. As a result, they have fewer opportunities to win the popular masses through their political-Islamic ideology. In its hopelessness, they have failed to separate the Kurdish people from its vanguard by fascist terror, nor have they intimidated the population through announcing amnesia for imprisoned mafia bosses and fascist killers. All this shows the loss of power of the dictatorship. However, the HDP is gaining ground by uniting large parts of the labouring left with the HDP. Now it's about taking this opportunity as an attack against the colonial fascist dictatorship. Every opportunity to get together with the masses has to
be used. Every vote is a resistance, every person who is won into the ranks of the socialists in the fight against the fascist dictatorship is a gain of the resistance. But we do not limit our horizon with it. The election campaign is also a time when we are strengthening and rearranging the fronts. We will not only win the people for votes, the goal is to make everyone an organized part of the resistance and to let the energy of the people open through it. Therefore, it is time to organize democratic people's councils within the unified revolutionary-democratic front. This democratic councils are the organizational structures, for rising the struggle. The election campaign provides the basis for this and the organization of democratic councils in the streets, neighborhoods, parks and squares is part of our revolutionary preparation. The fight against the upcoming election cheatings and the provocations will be successful in this way. Our goal is to lead the masses to the streets and to conquer the streets. For that we strengthen the morale of the progressive masses of the people. All our energy is directed to this opportunity. It is unpredictable which dirty methods the fascist dictatorship will apply if, due to insufficient votes, it needs a possible 2nd electoral round on 7th July. The tactics for this case will be decided under the new conditions from June 24, until this day, however, we will use all our energy to defeat the fascist bloc. For the ensuing chaos, our revolutionary goals will guide us. To conclude, we want to emphasize that after the elections of June 7, 2015, the Communist youth suffered the first blow of the coup with the massacre of Suruç, but they responded with resistance to this new phase. Now it's time for the Communists to take the resistance to a new stage. The election campaign will be a stepping stone to the fight.
