We are passing through the month in which we once again meet with our immortals. The month through which we speak with the memories of those who fell martyr in the struggle of freedom and strengthen our revolutionary existence under their guiding light; the month November...
On behalf of comrade Erdal Balcı, the first martyr of MLKP, who was murdered by the fascist Turkish state on November 4, 1994, our party declared November as "the month of the martyrs", in order to commemorate the martyrs of revolution in an active and organized way. Indeed, this attitude was primarily a matter of our responsibility to our party's martyrs. But at the same time, in terms of a true and revolutionary way to relate with the martyrs of revolution, it was the reflection of the inclusive and unifying manner which forms our revolutionary steps since from the foundation of our party as an essential value to keep alive. That's why, we do embrace and accept all martyrs, who fell within the struggle of freedom, democracy and socialism, as our martyrs. In that sense, every November, along with those who gave their life for the revolutionary struggle in the ranks of our party, we also meet with the memories of all martyrs of revolution, visit their graves, be together with their families, organize commemorations with various events in order to spread and keep their dreams alive.
They are the ones who rebelled against the dishonor, selfishness and injustice of private property dividing the world into classes... Those who fought until death against the inequality of race, language and gender; against the order that make workers and laborers suffer in the clutches of hunger, poverty, unemployment; that destroys the environment by transforming the science and technology into a gun towards nature and humanity... They were not suspicious about the values for which they came to the fore; they did not regret. Their ages, the years that they spent in the revolutionary struggle, their experiences, capabilities, the responsibilities they undertook were not equal. However, they became equal in being the vanguard will; in the spirit of sacrifice and immortality. Indeed, none of them were going after death, yet they were all full of life energy. They had longings, dreams and love that were tightly coupled with the emancipation struggle of the working class and the oppressed. Even so, they did not place themselves in a secure life far from death. Following their just dreams under different conditions and periods, they chose to walk at the edges of various cliffs. And they reproduce their happiness within these choices...
Yes, the struggle for freedom and socialism requires heavy prices. Because the enemies of peoples do not and will never give up mobilizing for all kinds of oppression, cruelty, murder and massacre for the sake of their power. Yet more, in order to preserve even one specific form of their sovereignty, they hammer away at torture, prison and death traps against revolutionaries. Those who decide to walk in this rocky path, on which they equip themselves with the values and culture of the revolutionary struggle, necessarily welcome to pay a price. Because a path free from sacrifices, from paying prices against the traps and ambushes, ultimately arrive to surrender the line that enemy draws. Contrary to remain as a mere opposition, the revolution resides beyond that line, where the martyrs of revolution point out.
Indeed, the price is not paid only by being kept in prison or fall as martyr. Within the revolutionary struggle, all of us are paying different prices in different extents. The point here is whether we stay back or leap forward after facing the prices; whether we will be defeated to the drawn limits or get over them to win the future.
In that sense, apart from keeping their honorable memory alive, November is actually the call for all revolutionary parties and their cadres to question themselves from the focus of the practice of those who fell for an equal and free world. It is a chance to internalize the values they left behind, a stepping stone for us to extend our revolutionary horizon.
With this consciousness, we as MLKP, once again state our respect and loyalty to the memories of our comrades, who fell martyr both in our party's and other revolutionary, anti-fascist ranks for the sake of freedom, justice, equation of peoples, women's liberation and socialism.
