PROGRAM OF MLKP


CHAPTER I
CAPITALISM

1. The emergence of the free worker, who has broken away from the feudal ties and does not have the means of production and subsistence, is the historical condition of existence of capital. The accumulation of capital takes place by the confiscation of surplus labor-time of the worker by the capitalist. Where capital accumulation prevails, the labor-capital contrast becomes the decisive contradiction.
2. Wherever the capital enters, it dissolves the old relations of production, makes them dependent on itself and liquidates them during the process. Ultimately, it does not leave any other relation of production except itself; it is the historical tendency of capital to transform all kinds of ownership on the means of production into capital, the whole production into the production of commodities and all kinds of labor into wage-labor.
3. The capital production process consists of two stages. The first is the production of surplus, which is generated by the confiscation of the excess labor time of the worker during the process of commodity production; the second is the conversion of the surplus value into profit by the sale of commodities. In the production area, the bosses exploit the worker, while in the market the bosses who compete for the surplus-profit rob each other.
4. The capital concentrates in competition and centralizes, and the bigger ones swallow smaller ones. Monopolies on national and worldwide scale emerge. As capital accumulation increases, the rate of capital spreading to the world increases. Creating a world market is one of the main intrinsicinherent?internal?ingrained trends of capital. The economic competition between the capitalist countries and between the monopolies is transformed into the highest political form through the occupation and colonial-sharing wars. Wars are the inevitable result of capital competition.
5. Under the capitalist mode of production, the confiscation of the surplus-labor time of the worker by the capitalist is the main source of wealth. The creation and production of the reserve industry army, the emergence of chronic unemployment, the brutal exploitation of the worker, especially the woman and child labor force, the expropriation of the producers, starting from the small ones and gradually to the bigger ones, the confiscation of the accumulation of others through the financial means is the form of existence of this wealth accumulation. On the one hand, the growth of unemployment, poverty and dispossession, on the other hand, the accumulation of wealth in the hands of a small minority is the nature of capital accumulation.
6. Capitalism not only condemns workers and other laborers to exploitation and poverty, but confronts them with social, intellectual decay/degeneration and alienation.
7. The unplanned and anarchic development of production and the limited purchasing power of direct producers lead to overproduction crises, which profoundly shake capitalism at regular intervals. The capital comes out as more concentrated and centralized from every crisis. Some of these crises emerge as large-scale periodical crises and are the source of qualitative changes in the form of capitalist production. Free competitive capitalism reaches imperialism and imperialism reaches the stage of imperialist globalization.
8. The development of the productive forces of social labor is the historical function and existence condition of capital. The monopoly of capital becomes the block of the mode of production, which sprouts together with itself and under its sovereignty. The centralization of the means of production and the socialization of labor eventually reaches a point where they are incompatible with their capitalist shells. Continuous revolution in production becomes unrealizable. Instead of developing the social production forces of labor, capital becomes an obstacle in front of it. This is the objective basis for its existential crisis. Thus, the shell cracks. Capitalist production leads to its own denial with the inevitable necessity of a natural law.
9. Capital creates the material forces of the new society by its own hand, but for the free development of these forces capital must be eliminated.
10. The task of burying capitalism, which creates the material conditions of its own destruction, is on the shoulder of the proletariat, which constitutes the class of wage-slaves. The communist movement is, enlightened by the theory of scientific socialism, the conscious expression of the working-class movement, which aims at resolving the contradiction between the social character of production and the private ownership of the means of production.


SEXIST SOCIETY, PATRIARCHY AND WOMEN'S REVOLUTION
11. The domination and enslavement of women by men is the first class conflict which steps on to the stage of history with the birth of private property. Sexist society emerges when the patriarchal social order and the slavery system builds an organic unity, creating the economic, political and ideological institutions of gender and class oppression. This structure also gains a heterosexist character in the historical development.
12. In the capital order, all relations between the genders are established on a socialized scale. Men's control on women's labor and body are socialized. As the power of men is inherent in all social organizations on the basis of the bourgeois family based on domestic slavery, women enter into a direct relationship with capital both as labor commodity and as a sexual commodity. The woman is exploited as a domestic worker and a wage-worker, her body becomes a general commodity and a general area of capital investment.
13. The unity of capitalism and patriarchy is a contradictory unity. The first end of the contradiction between the social character of production and the private character of property pushes women into the social life as labor and commodity, while the second end permanently maintains its home-dependent position. In total, this contradiction reinforces the objective and subjective conditions of the elimination of patriarchy.
14. Women's liberation requires the abolition of the material social basis of patriarchy in the order of capital. This corresponds to the private ownership on the means of production and the bourgeois state, the political-economic-military-ideological institutional structure based on it. The bourgeois state is the institutionalized state of the patriarchal violence, the assurance of the maintenance of sexist exploitation within and outside the home.
15. Women revolution is the revolutionary program of women's liberation. The women revolution intersects with a social revolution which aims at socialism with the liquidation of the patriarchal bourgeois state, and with socialism. Its adventure finishes only in communism. The social revolution of the oppressed gender and the oppressed class carries the character of a united revolution.
16. The oppressed and oppressing genders are divided into antagonist classes within themselves. In the face of the necessity of the liquidation of private property, it unifies the fate of the proletarian man and the liberation struggle of the women which he suppresses as both on the basis of class unity and as an alliance force.
17. The position themselves in the social revolution as components of classes and strata which have interests from this social revolution both in the name of those classes and in the name of the gender as a social dynamic which has interest from this revolution. The women positions themselves both, as components of the classes and strata which have interests in this social revolution in the name of these classes, and as a gender which has an interest in the revolution and is a social dynamic for itself, in the name of her gender.
The relationship between the oppressed gender and the oppressed class has a dual character in the form of alliance and innerness. The gender struggle takes the form of ideological and political struggles within this alliance.


IMPERIALISM
18. Starting from the end of the nineteenth century, free competitive capitalism was replaced by monopoly capitalism. This period, in which bank capital merged with industry capital, capital export got ahead of commodity export, the determinant means of production began to gather in the hands of the monopolies and the world was shared among the monopoly groups and imperialist states fiercely competing for markets and spheres of influence, was the age of imperialism.
19. The fact that the law of uneven development of capitalism became much more prominent during imperialism and imperialism had made national economies a link to the chain of world imperialism rendered possible to carry out proletarian revolutions and establish socialism in individual countries through breaking through the weakest link of the imperialist chain.
20. In the age of imperialism, the contradictions among the imperialist states and the financial capital groups themselves, between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat in the whole world but especially in the metropolitan countries and between the imperialists and the oppressed nations and peoples of the colonial and dependent countries became sharper. The result of extreme sharpening of the contradictions of capitalism was the eruption of inter-imperialist wars, the socialist revolution of the proletariat against the bourgeoisie, the national liberation wars of the peoples of the colonial, semi-colonial countries and the anti-imperialist democratic revolutions. The age of imperialism is also the age of death of capitalism which has reached the final stage of its development, it is the age of proletarian revolutions.
21. Today is characterized by the full control over the integrated world market in the production, trade and capital export of international monopolies and the biggest ones among those, the world monopolies, the production process has also become globalized, the speculative capital has gained a prominent position in the total capital movement, the international monopolies and imperialist states enter into a violent competition over the world market and a struggle of re-sharing the world on the basis of this competition, new colonialism has been transformed into a heavier form of yoke, financial-economic colonialism. Today, with this distinctive features, the world capitalism has reached a phase of imperialism, the stage of imperialist globalization.


PROLETARIAN REVOLUTION AND RESTORATIONS
22. The period of proletarian world revolutions began? with the Great Socialist October Revolution carried out in Russia in 1917. This revolution, which ended the sovereignty of the bourgeoisie in one-sixth of the world and dealt a heavy blow to the capitalist-imperialist system, divided the world into two separate and opposing systems. Imperialism, at this stage where the class struggle was intensified, wielded the fascist dictatorship as the most reactionary, most chauvinistic, most imperialist open dictatorship and the last form of domination of finance capital against the working class and the oppressed peoples of the world.
23. The Second World War, which started as an inter-imperialist conflict, resulted in a glorious victory of the peoples of Europe and Asia, led by the Soviet Union, against the fascist bloc. At the end of this war, the balance of forces changed significantly in favor of the forces of democracy and socialism, and a socialist camp was formed. American imperialism, which came out from the war without physical destruction, became the gendarmerie of the exploiting world and started the Cold War.
24. In the period following the Second World War, the concentration, centralization and internationalization of capital became more advanced; development in science has created jumps in technology. The multinational corporations and the giant monopoly unions have reached the strength and the prevalence, surrounding the earth like an octopus. Monopoly state capitalism has reached enormous dimensions. Despite the physical contraction of the imperialist world market due to the formation of the socialist camp, the imperialist market developed tremendously with the increase of demand after the terrible devastation caused by the imperialist war of re-division, and as a result of it, until the late 1960s, capitalism experienced a relatively calm growth process in the metropolitan countries. This provided a suitable basis for the strengthening of reformism and revisionism in the communist and workers' movement.
25. In the same period, the vast majority of the former colonies were transformed into new (semi) colonies as a result of the struggle of the oppressed peoples and nations that developed with the active support of the socialist camp. Old-style colonialism collapsed. Due to the development of capitalism dependent on imperialism in the new colonies, the quantitative and qualitative weight of the working class gradually increased. This situation increased the possibility of the proletariat to establish its hegemony in the anti-imperialist democratic revolution and of the uninterrupted transition from the democratic stage of the revolution to its socialist stage.
26. The imperialists were rapidly armed after the ‘50s, the militarization of the economy became even more evident, with the explosion in the numbers of local and regional reactionary wars led by the imperialists themselves; the number of people who died in these wars surpassed the number of deaths in the 1st and 2nd imperialist wars of redivision. In the same process, the destruction of natural and historical environment also accelerated to the utmost.
27. Despite the attack of the counter-revolution against the international revolution front in the Soviet Union in 1956, the 1960s and ‘70s became a period when the revolutionary liberation wars of the peoples of Asia, Africa and Latin America gained glorious victories. However, the ‘80s witnessed the decline of the wave of revolution worldwide.
28. In 1956, the modern revisionists, who seized power in the Soviet Union, initiated the process of demolishing socialism and rebuilding capitalism. The counter-revolution, which began with Khrushchev and continued by the Brezhnev regime, turned the Soviet Union into a social imperialist country dominated by monopoly state capitalism. The dictatorship of the bureaucrat bourgeoisie was established in place of the dictatorship of the proletariat.
29. The counter-revolution in the Soviet Union wreaked havoc on the world communist movement. Many communist parties took part on the side of betrayal. The countries that turned to socialism through socialist or uninterrupted revolution other than Albania, followed the path of capitalist restoration. The socialist camp broke up. ALP, which took a frontal stand against modern revisionism, headed the international communist movement.
30. The Marxist-Leninist theory had seen the possibility of a restoration in a socialist country under conditions of imperialist siege; the imperialist aggression, the internal counter-revolutionary uprising and the white betrayal at the party were highlighted as reasons and means of this. The counter-revolution in the Soviet Union took place through bureaucratic corruption and betrayal at the party.
31. At the end of the 1980s, the revisionist camp, led by the Soviet Union, collapsed and this was followed by the disintegration of the Soviet Union. The world bourgeoisie turned this situation into a raging ideological attack opportunity and used it for the propaganda of the "death" of "socialism" with all its possibilities. As a part of results of all these developments and imperialist activity, Albania, which was a defiant stronghold of socialism, also suffered a restoration through liquidationism. ALP turned power over to the collaborators of imperialism. In Albania, mass reactions emerged at first; however, the fact that the communists at the party and particularly in the leadership could not dare to take up a civil war, prevented the workers and laborers from organizing a resistance through the revolutionary violence to repel the counter-revolution.
32. In spite of all these negative developments, humanity is objectively closer to socialism and communism in today's world, where international production and distribution has reached tremendous dimensions, the social organization of the working class has progressed, the educational and cultural level of it has increased and the elements of crisis have deeper and sharper accumulation. Despite the demagogies of democracy and prosperity through scientific technical revolution, capitalism did not and cannot give humanity anything other than war, hunger, poverty, aggressive nationalism, fascism, unmeasurable destruction of productive forces, social and mental decay, ecological destruction, human alienation to nature. Humanity will not accept extinction, it will turn to socialism.
33. As the revolution could break out in the weakest link or links of the imperialist chain, the level that imperialist capitalism has reached today has created the possibility of regional revolutions. The same situation matures the objective conditions for the transformation of revolutions of each individual country into regional revolutions and waves of world revolution, reinforcing the possibility of revolutions that trigger each other in many countries.
34. The ranks of the proletariat in the stage of imperialist globalization have widened, the material ground of its international identity has been strengthened, the difference between the social positions of the manual and intellectual labor has weakened, the proletariat and the oppressed and exploited laborer strata of the population, whose existence conditions are increasingly depleted due to rapid expropriation, have become closer to each other and the possibilities of the working class joining other oppressed around its program have strengthened.
35. In the stage of imperialist globalization, the contradiction between the genders has been sharpened due to the deepening of the contradiction between the social character of production that brings women into social life and the private character of the property which reinforces women's home-dependent position, and this constitutes the objective ground of the women's uprising and the women revolution. The exploitation of women as cheap labor has been intensified, female workers have grown in quantity, the link between sexist exploitation and surplus exploitation has been consolidated, capital production has been brought into the home on the ground of home-based precarious exploitation and merged with the domestic slavery, and the sex industry has become globalized. On this basis, the 21st century began as an age of women revolutions. The Lgbti+s, who developed into a social force, have become an important alliance force of the women revolution.
36. The destructive effects of capitalism on nature at the stage of imperialist globalization have reached the level of an ecological crisis that confronts the life of human and living beings with the threat of existence. The struggles against ecological destruction have become one of the important issues of class struggles.
37. Today, filling the gap between the objective conditions and the subjective conditions of the proletarian world revolution, and the establishment and consolidation of the communist vanguard platoons of the working class in each country carry a vital importance. The fulfillment of this task goes through a determined and uncompromising ideological struggle against the ideological attacks of the bourgeoisie and new forms of modern revisionism, as well as maoism, trotskyism, and revisionism from all colors.


CHAPTER II
COMMUNISM AND TRANSITION TO COMMUNISM

38. The ultimate purpose of the communist movement is communism, whose flag is written on the principle that is from each according to one's ability, to each according to one's needs. In the communist society, classes will have been completely eliminated, the enslaving dependence of people on the division of labor will has been abolished, the historical division of labor between men and women will has been overcome, heterosexism will has been ended, the contrasts between manual labor and intellectual labor, between urban and rural will have been obliterated, culture will has become a common property of everyone, work will has been turned into a pleasure and the primary requirement of life. The state arisen on the basis of the division of society into classes will has been disappeared, national inequalities coming from history will have been overcome and real equality will has been provided among the members of society. Communism is a world system, it will realize through the replacement of the capitalist siege by the socialist siege.
39. Socialism, which is the inevitable product of the uncompromising struggle of the proletariat against the bourgeoisie and the lower phase of communism, is a period of revolutionary transformations that corresponds to the transition from capitalism to classless society. Socialism, which has laid the social foundations of the liberation of the oppressed gender, also develops as a women revolution. Socialism carries the birth marks of the capitalist society from which it was born. Socialism applies the principle that from each according to one's ability, to each according to one's work. The proletariat destroyed the bourgeois state apparatus by the revolutionary armed struggle of the masses; it establishes its own dictatorship and engages in the construction of socialism through the use of determinant means of production. The maximum satisfaction of the masses' growing material and cultural needs is the basic economic law of socialism.
40. During the period of socialism, a hard, complex and long-lasting struggle takes place in all aspects of life between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat, the socialist path and the capitalist path, the patriarchy and the freedom of women. The proletariat, in the course of this struggle, gathers all laborers around itself and suppresses all counter-revolutionary attempts of exploitative class remnants and their foreign supporters.
41. The dictatorship of the proletariat, which is the widest democracy for the workers and other laborers, the hardest dictatorship for the overthrown exploiting classes and their remnants, is socialist democracy. The proletarian dictatorship, which gradually entrenches the wide masses of laborers and with a special effort, the working women to the administration of the state, to the economic construction of socialism, to the creation of the new human. is the only and most reliable means of struggling the bourgeoisie and the reaction, and preventing the restoration of capitalism from socialism.
42. In the system of the proletarian dictatorship, the organs of power are the Soviets. The Soviet system is based on production and territory, combining legislative and executive. The Soviet system, which arms the workers with the right to directly elect and control their own representatives, dismisses them from position at any moment, and deals a crushing blow to bureaucracy by reducing the wages of state administrators to the level of average wages, is the dictatorship of the majority on the minority and a thousand times more democratic than the most democratic bourgeois republic.
43. The dictatorship of the proletariat is the process of transition from state to statelessness. The proletariat can only sustain this dictatorship if it does not share power with any other class and it is ruled by a communist party that tightly embraces Marxism-Leninism.
44. There is a danger of restoration of capitalism under the conditions of socialism, but this is not a fate. The dictatorship of the proletariat and the communist party, by increasing vigilance against imperialist conspiracies, constantly strengthening Soviet power, educating the masses with the spirit of communism, ensuring women's equal representation, relying on a systematic struggle led by women against patriarchy in the ranks of the party and state organs, enhancing socialist democracy and mass initiative, meeting the increasing material and spiritual needs of the masses, can prevent the creation of a privileged layer and ensure the uninterrupted march towards communism.


CHAPTER III
THE FIRST STEP OF THE REVOLUTION

45. The revolution of Turkey and Kurdistan- under regional revolution conditions- bears development possibilities in the forms of a united revolution of Turkey/Northern Kurdistan, the liberation of Kurdistan on its own and united revolutions of the other three parts of Kurdistan, connected to revolutions of Iran, Syria and Iraq.
The Communist movement struggles by taking account of the whole of these revolutionary development possibilities. It sees this development as part of the Middle East regional revolution.
It works for the establishment of regional democratic or socialist federations in the Middle East, the Balkans and the Caucasus.


A) Turkey/North Kurdistan
46. Turkey, which is a financial-economic colony of imperialism and a multinational country, holding Kurdistan under colonial yoke, is a moderately developed capitalist country, where the capital oligarchy dominates, the conflict of labor-capital has become determinant, the petty commodity economy has been rapidly dissolving even though it is still widespread, the significance of the rural in economic life has decreased, the minimum political, legal, economic and social conditions of gender equality do not occur.
The shape of classes on this economic structure is as follows:
Working Class: The ranks of the working class have become inclusive of the main bodies of service and intellectual laborers and toiling state officers, making the working class, which is gathered in the major industrial cities, in a quantitative way, the majority of the total active population.
The proletariat has the strength and ability to take the political leadership of the revolution, keep the petty bourgeoisie within the alliance led by itself, and move to socialism without interruption.
The working class of Turkey and Northern Kurdistan, which suffers from lack of political freedom and has the task of preparing itself for the establishment of socialism by leading the struggle for democracy together with the economically, politically or socially oppressed class, gender, nationality, national and religious communities, is the main and leading force of the revolution.
Semi-Proletariat: The semi-proletariat, whose main body is constituted by the urban poor and poor peasantry, which is characterized by the fact that they often have to sell their workforce to make a living and has a position between the proletariat and the petty bourgeoisie, holds an important place in Turkey. The semi-proletariat, as in the democratic revolution, is the main and most reliable ally and support of the working class in the uninterrupted transition to socialism.
Petty bourgeoisie: The petty bourgeoisie, which consists of small land and workplace owners, artisans, self-employed, etc., forms the most populous part of the active population after the working class. In the globalization phase of imperialism; under conditions where the centralization and concentration of capital has reached an enormous extent and Turkey has turned into a financial-economic colony and integrated into the world market dominated by world monopolies; dispossession, impoverishment and the dissolving process of the petty bourgeoisie has accelerated. The class interests of the dissolving large portion of this stratum, whose existence possibilities have been increasingly exhausting under capitalist relations of production, coincide with the interests of the working class.
The still existing section of the petty bourgeoisie has a wobbly character due to being both, laborer and property owner. The petty bourgeoisie, which has partially sustained its weight in society despite its constant loss of strength, is under the economic exploitation of the imperialist monopolies and its collaborator, the capital oligarchy, and the political pressure of the fascist dictatorship. Therefore it has a strong revolutionary potential. Despite its constant weakening, the urban and rural petty bourgeoisie, one of the main forces of our revolution, is the strategic ally of the proletariat during the democratic revolution. The proletariat agrees to share the power that will be established in the first step of the revolution with this class. In the process of uninterrupted transition, however, the proletariat follows a policy of neutralizing the petty bourgeoisie and winning it as much as possible.
Middle bourgeoisie: The middle bourgeoisie consists of medium-sized business owners outside the collaborative monopolies in the cities and the rich peasantry in the countryside. Under the conditions of imperialist globalization, this class gradually loses its independent character, enters into the market dominated by the imperialist monopolies and the collaborative capitalist oligarchy by only depending on them, and its share in the surplus value distribution decreases, although it has an important place in the production and realization of the surplus value.
The middle-class bourgeoisie, which is an exploitative class, is on the one hand dependent on the imperialist monopolies and the capital oligarchy, and cannot survive without them, on the other hand it seeks to stretch this dependence and increase its profit share. For this reason, it wobbles between the imperialist globalist liberalism and the attempt to limit this liberalism. The latter is evolving as a reactionary-fascist political trend, which is also sometimes backed up by the anger of the working classes suffering from attacks of imperialist globalization.
The middle bourgeoisie, which is strongly attached to the existence of monopolies in the cities and has a deep fear of the proletariat and a revolution in the hegemony of it and under its leadership, is a counter-revolutionary class.
In the process of democratic revolution, the proletariat follows a policy of isolating this class as the main mediator social force. It crushes the middle bourgeoisie's sections which is an armed resistance against the revolution and seizes their property.
However, because of the national problem, the middle bourgeoisie in Northern Kurdistan has the potential to play a different role. Tactical alliances are possible with those who support the national struggle.
Collaborative monopolist bourgeoisie: This class, the collaborator of imperialism, is the owner of the order and regime in Turkey. The rural allies of this class are large agricultural capitalists. This class, independently or in partnership with them, constitutes the capital oligarchy together with the international financial, industrial and commercial monopolies which have investments in Turkey.
Our revolution will destroy the fascist dictatorship of this class, which is the center of the counter-revolution, and it will be completely expropriated and oppressed.
47. In Turkey and Northern Kurdistan, the dominance of a fascist regime that keeps the working class, laborers, Kurdish nation, women, national and religious communities within the same political grip, keeping Kurdistan under colonial yoke, various economic and social contradictions and consequences caused by the financial and economic colonial reality necessitate the proletariat to organize democratic revolution with these allies, to train itself for socialism and to prepare the political preconditions of socialism. For this reason, the first step of our revolution is the anti-fascist, anti-imperialist, anti-colonialist, gender emancipatory democratic revolution. The essence of this revolution is the acquisition of political freedom.
48. The proletariat must bring the democratic revolution to victory for the transition to the socialist revolution. Therefore, it constitutes a strategic link with the rural and urban petty bourgeoisie, national and religious communities, the Kurdish nation and the oppressed gender on the basis of its minimum program. It aims at the establishment of the power of Union of Turkey and Northern Kurdistan People's Republics.
49. The economic and social conditions of Turkey and Northern Kurdistan, the quantitative and qualitative level of development of the proletariat, makes it possible for the revolutionary proletariat to quickly switch from democratic revolution to socialist revolution. The proletariat, which is in favor of the uninterrupted revolution, does not stop in the half way, it transforms the democratic revolution into a socialist revolution, depending on the degree of unification with the rural and urban semi-proletarian masses, and on the level of consciousness, organization and preparation.
50. The communist movement considers the struggle for democracy as an extremely important task, but carrying a relative value, and dependent on the aim of socialist revolution. Therefore, it supports Kurdish national, democratic peasant, democratic women and the general democratic popular movements, embraces their demands; but on the other hand, it combines Kurdish workers, agricultural workers and women workers in class organizations apart from the general democratic movement. The revolutionary proletariat subjects reforms to revolution and treats democratic tasks from a socialist perspective. It follows the socialist patriotism in Kurdistan.
51. The democratic revolution, which is the preliminary step of the uninterrupted transition to socialism, also develops as a women revolution, dissolves the legal and institutional structure of the fascist dictatorship which has a completely patriarchal character, solves the problems of gender contradiction within the scope of political freedom, and with the tasks of ensuring equality between the unequal, relates to the oppressed gender and the oppressed gender identities on the basis of positive discrimination in all areas. The woman half of the proletariat, exempted from private ownership relations due to patriarchal privileges, is the most advanced dynamic of the advancement of uninterrupted transition of revolution to socialism. The women revolution is the requirement to secure the ultimate victory of the revolutionary proletariat.


B) Kurdistan Revolution
52. Divided into four parts, the Kurdistan Revolution is also the revolution of Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria. Although the liberation of Kurdistan on its own is possible, the attainment of political freedom in Turkey as well as these three countries, the establishment of people's republics based on the worker-laborer councils is a threshold required for the completion and assurance of the Kurdistan Revolution. It is among the primary tasks of the proletariat to ensure the federative unity of the republics of Turkish, Kurdish, Arab, Persian and other peoples of the region based on councils. The communist movement struggles for the freedom and unity of the four parts of Kurdistan.
53. The Rojava Revolution, which the Kurdish nation carried out against the reactionary Assad regime and Arab colonialism in Rojavayê (Western) Kurdistan, is an extension and acquisition of the Kurdistan Revolution, the regional revolutionary situation and the regional revolution. In Rojava, a popular democratic power has been established, based on the principle of full equality of rights, which guarantees the free and equal living of peoples. The Rojava Revolution is also a women revolution.
a) The communist movement sees defending the Rojava revolution as a direct part of the work of organizing the united revolution of Turkey and Kurdistan, deepening and maturing the revolutionary situation in the region, and for the emancipation of peoples of the region. It works to organize and develop the revolutionary defense of the country.
b) It works to develop the socialist consciousness within the masses and to prepare transition to socialist revolution with the perspective of developing independent class organization by enlightening and uniting workers and semi-proletarians from Kurdish, Arab and other peoples, the rural and urban poor, women and youth, the peoples of Rojava with socialism, and of advancing towards socialism on the path of uninterruptedness of the revolution.
c) For the continuity and the future of the revolution, it works to organize the public administration in the form of the councils and communes of the workers, laborers and the poor, and to establish these boards in an effective and permanent way.
d) To prepare the conditions for the advancement of the revolution to socialism uninterruptedly, it works on the socialization measures to strengthen the economic foundations of popular power.
54. In Başûrê (Southern) Kurdistan, it aims at the liberation and freedom of the Kurdish nation against Iraqi colonialism, imperialist occupation and regional reactionary forces.
It treats all political problems in Başûrê Kurdistan on the basis of the principle of unconditional support of the right of nations to self-determination.
It acts with the perspective of isolating the leadership of the bourgeoisie within the Kurdish national struggle, isolating the Başûrê Kurdistan bourgeoisie which represents the reconciliation and cooperation with imperialism and the colonial powers in the region, and developing the line of struggle based on the Kurdish poor and laborers.
55. It fights with the perspective of the liberation of Rojhilat, which can be realized on its own based on the developments in other parts of Kurdistan, as well as has the possibility of realization intertwined with the struggle of Iranian workers, laborers and women, and of Beluci, Azeri, Arab and other peoples under the pressure of Iranian colonialism.

PROGRAM OF MLKP


CHAPTER I
CAPITALISM

1. The emergence of the free worker, who has broken away from the feudal ties and does not have the means of production and subsistence, is the historical condition of existence of capital. The accumulation of capital takes place by the confiscation of surplus labor-time of the worker by the capitalist. Where capital accumulation prevails, the labor-capital contrast becomes the decisive contradiction.
2. Wherever the capital enters, it dissolves the old relations of production, makes them dependent on itself and liquidates them during the process. Ultimately, it does not leave any other relation of production except itself; it is the historical tendency of capital to transform all kinds of ownership on the means of production into capital, the whole production into the production of commodities and all kinds of labor into wage-labor.
3. The capital production process consists of two stages. The first is the production of surplus, which is generated by the confiscation of the excess labor time of the worker during the process of commodity production; the second is the conversion of the surplus value into profit by the sale of commodities. In the production area, the bosses exploit the worker, while in the market the bosses who compete for the surplus-profit rob each other.
4. The capital concentrates in competition and centralizes, and the bigger ones swallow smaller ones. Monopolies on national and worldwide scale emerge. As capital accumulation increases, the rate of capital spreading to the world increases. Creating a world market is one of the main intrinsicinherent?internal?ingrained trends of capital. The economic competition between the capitalist countries and between the monopolies is transformed into the highest political form through the occupation and colonial-sharing wars. Wars are the inevitable result of capital competition.
5. Under the capitalist mode of production, the confiscation of the surplus-labor time of the worker by the capitalist is the main source of wealth. The creation and production of the reserve industry army, the emergence of chronic unemployment, the brutal exploitation of the worker, especially the woman and child labor force, the expropriation of the producers, starting from the small ones and gradually to the bigger ones, the confiscation of the accumulation of others through the financial means is the form of existence of this wealth accumulation. On the one hand, the growth of unemployment, poverty and dispossession, on the other hand, the accumulation of wealth in the hands of a small minority is the nature of capital accumulation.
6. Capitalism not only condemns workers and other laborers to exploitation and poverty, but confronts them with social, intellectual decay/degeneration and alienation.
7. The unplanned and anarchic development of production and the limited purchasing power of direct producers lead to overproduction crises, which profoundly shake capitalism at regular intervals. The capital comes out as more concentrated and centralized from every crisis. Some of these crises emerge as large-scale periodical crises and are the source of qualitative changes in the form of capitalist production. Free competitive capitalism reaches imperialism and imperialism reaches the stage of imperialist globalization.
8. The development of the productive forces of social labor is the historical function and existence condition of capital. The monopoly of capital becomes the block of the mode of production, which sprouts together with itself and under its sovereignty. The centralization of the means of production and the socialization of labor eventually reaches a point where they are incompatible with their capitalist shells. Continuous revolution in production becomes unrealizable. Instead of developing the social production forces of labor, capital becomes an obstacle in front of it. This is the objective basis for its existential crisis. Thus, the shell cracks. Capitalist production leads to its own denial with the inevitable necessity of a natural law.
9. Capital creates the material forces of the new society by its own hand, but for the free development of these forces capital must be eliminated.
10. The task of burying capitalism, which creates the material conditions of its own destruction, is on the shoulder of the proletariat, which constitutes the class of wage-slaves. The communist movement is, enlightened by the theory of scientific socialism, the conscious expression of the working-class movement, which aims at resolving the contradiction between the social character of production and the private ownership of the means of production.


SEXIST SOCIETY, PATRIARCHY AND WOMEN'S REVOLUTION
11. The domination and enslavement of women by men is the first class conflict which steps on to the stage of history with the birth of private property. Sexist society emerges when the patriarchal social order and the slavery system builds an organic unity, creating the economic, political and ideological institutions of gender and class oppression. This structure also gains a heterosexist character in the historical development.
12. In the capital order, all relations between the genders are established on a socialized scale. Men's control on women's labor and body are socialized. As the power of men is inherent in all social organizations on the basis of the bourgeois family based on domestic slavery, women enter into a direct relationship with capital both as labor commodity and as a sexual commodity. The woman is exploited as a domestic worker and a wage-worker, her body becomes a general commodity and a general area of capital investment.
13. The unity of capitalism and patriarchy is a contradictory unity. The first end of the contradiction between the social character of production and the private character of property pushes women into the social life as labor and commodity, while the second end permanently maintains its home-dependent position. In total, this contradiction reinforces the objective and subjective conditions of the elimination of patriarchy.
14. Women's liberation requires the abolition of the material social basis of patriarchy in the order of capital. This corresponds to the private ownership on the means of production and the bourgeois state, the political-economic-military-ideological institutional structure based on it. The bourgeois state is the institutionalized state of the patriarchal violence, the assurance of the maintenance of sexist exploitation within and outside the home.
15. Women revolution is the revolutionary program of women's liberation. The women revolution intersects with a social revolution which aims at socialism with the liquidation of the patriarchal bourgeois state, and with socialism. Its adventure finishes only in communism. The social revolution of the oppressed gender and the oppressed class carries the character of a united revolution.
16. The oppressed and oppressing genders are divided into antagonist classes within themselves. In the face of the necessity of the liquidation of private property, it unifies the fate of the proletarian man and the liberation struggle of the women which he suppresses as both on the basis of class unity and as an alliance force.
17. The position themselves in the social revolution as components of classes and strata which have interests from this social revolution both in the name of those classes and in the name of the gender as a social dynamic which has interest from this revolution. The women positions themselves both, as components of the classes and strata which have interests in this social revolution in the name of these classes, and as a gender which has an interest in the revolution and is a social dynamic for itself, in the name of her gender.
The relationship between the oppressed gender and the oppressed class has a dual character in the form of alliance and innerness. The gender struggle takes the form of ideological and political struggles within this alliance.


IMPERIALISM
18. Starting from the end of the nineteenth century, free competitive capitalism was replaced by monopoly capitalism. This period, in which bank capital merged with industry capital, capital export got ahead of commodity export, the determinant means of production began to gather in the hands of the monopolies and the world was shared among the monopoly groups and imperialist states fiercely competing for markets and spheres of influence, was the age of imperialism.
19. The fact that the law of uneven development of capitalism became much more prominent during imperialism and imperialism had made national economies a link to the chain of world imperialism rendered possible to carry out proletarian revolutions and establish socialism in individual countries through breaking through the weakest link of the imperialist chain.
20. In the age of imperialism, the contradictions among the imperialist states and the financial capital groups themselves, between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat in the whole world but especially in the metropolitan countries and between the imperialists and the oppressed nations and peoples of the colonial and dependent countries became sharper. The result of extreme sharpening of the contradictions of capitalism was the eruption of inter-imperialist wars, the socialist revolution of the proletariat against the bourgeoisie, the national liberation wars of the peoples of the colonial, semi-colonial countries and the anti-imperialist democratic revolutions. The age of imperialism is also the age of death of capitalism which has reached the final stage of its development, it is the age of proletarian revolutions.
21. Today is characterized by the full control over the integrated world market in the production, trade and capital export of international monopolies and the biggest ones among those, the world monopolies, the production process has also become globalized, the speculative capital has gained a prominent position in the total capital movement, the international monopolies and imperialist states enter into a violent competition over the world market and a struggle of re-sharing the world on the basis of this competition, new colonialism has been transformed into a heavier form of yoke, financial-economic colonialism. Today, with this distinctive features, the world capitalism has reached a phase of imperialism, the stage of imperialist globalization.


PROLETARIAN REVOLUTION AND RESTORATIONS
22. The period of proletarian world revolutions began? with the Great Socialist October Revolution carried out in Russia in 1917. This revolution, which ended the sovereignty of the bourgeoisie in one-sixth of the world and dealt a heavy blow to the capitalist-imperialist system, divided the world into two separate and opposing systems. Imperialism, at this stage where the class struggle was intensified, wielded the fascist dictatorship as the most reactionary, most chauvinistic, most imperialist open dictatorship and the last form of domination of finance capital against the working class and the oppressed peoples of the world.
23. The Second World War, which started as an inter-imperialist conflict, resulted in a glorious victory of the peoples of Europe and Asia, led by the Soviet Union, against the fascist bloc. At the end of this war, the balance of forces changed significantly in favor of the forces of democracy and socialism, and a socialist camp was formed. American imperialism, which came out from the war without physical destruction, became the gendarmerie of the exploiting world and started the Cold War.
24. In the period following the Second World War, the concentration, centralization and internationalization of capital became more advanced; development in science has created jumps in technology. The multinational corporations and the giant monopoly unions have reached the strength and the prevalence, surrounding the earth like an octopus. Monopoly state capitalism has reached enormous dimensions. Despite the physical contraction of the imperialist world market due to the formation of the socialist camp, the imperialist market developed tremendously with the increase of demand after the terrible devastation caused by the imperialist war of re-division, and as a result of it, until the late 1960s, capitalism experienced a relatively calm growth process in the metropolitan countries. This provided a suitable basis for the strengthening of reformism and revisionism in the communist and workers' movement.
25. In the same period, the vast majority of the former colonies were transformed into new (semi) colonies as a result of the struggle of the oppressed peoples and nations that developed with the active support of the socialist camp. Old-style colonialism collapsed. Due to the development of capitalism dependent on imperialism in the new colonies, the quantitative and qualitative weight of the working class gradually increased. This situation increased the possibility of the proletariat to establish its hegemony in the anti-imperialist democratic revolution and of the uninterrupted transition from the democratic stage of the revolution to its socialist stage.
26. The imperialists were rapidly armed after the ‘50s, the militarization of the economy became even more evident, with the explosion in the numbers of local and regional reactionary wars led by the imperialists themselves; the number of people who died in these wars surpassed the number of deaths in the 1st and 2nd imperialist wars of redivision. In the same process, the destruction of natural and historical environment also accelerated to the utmost.
27. Despite the attack of the counter-revolution against the international revolution front in the Soviet Union in 1956, the 1960s and ‘70s became a period when the revolutionary liberation wars of the peoples of Asia, Africa and Latin America gained glorious victories. However, the ‘80s witnessed the decline of the wave of revolution worldwide.
28. In 1956, the modern revisionists, who seized power in the Soviet Union, initiated the process of demolishing socialism and rebuilding capitalism. The counter-revolution, which began with Khrushchev and continued by the Brezhnev regime, turned the Soviet Union into a social imperialist country dominated by monopoly state capitalism. The dictatorship of the bureaucrat bourgeoisie was established in place of the dictatorship of the proletariat.
29. The counter-revolution in the Soviet Union wreaked havoc on the world communist movement. Many communist parties took part on the side of betrayal. The countries that turned to socialism through socialist or uninterrupted revolution other than Albania, followed the path of capitalist restoration. The socialist camp broke up. ALP, which took a frontal stand against modern revisionism, headed the international communist movement.
30. The Marxist-Leninist theory had seen the possibility of a restoration in a socialist country under conditions of imperialist siege; the imperialist aggression, the internal counter-revolutionary uprising and the white betrayal at the party were highlighted as reasons and means of this. The counter-revolution in the Soviet Union took place through bureaucratic corruption and betrayal at the party.
31. At the end of the 1980s, the revisionist camp, led by the Soviet Union, collapsed and this was followed by the disintegration of the Soviet Union. The world bourgeoisie turned this situation into a raging ideological attack opportunity and used it for the propaganda of the "death" of "socialism" with all its possibilities. As a part of results of all these developments and imperialist activity, Albania, which was a defiant stronghold of socialism, also suffered a restoration through liquidationism. ALP turned power over to the collaborators of imperialism. In Albania, mass reactions emerged at first; however, the fact that the communists at the party and particularly in the leadership could not dare to take up a civil war, prevented the workers and laborers from organizing a resistance through the revolutionary violence to repel the counter-revolution.
32. In spite of all these negative developments, humanity is objectively closer to socialism and communism in today's world, where international production and distribution has reached tremendous dimensions, the social organization of the working class has progressed, the educational and cultural level of it has increased and the elements of crisis have deeper and sharper accumulation. Despite the demagogies of democracy and prosperity through scientific technical revolution, capitalism did not and cannot give humanity anything other than war, hunger, poverty, aggressive nationalism, fascism, unmeasurable destruction of productive forces, social and mental decay, ecological destruction, human alienation to nature. Humanity will not accept extinction, it will turn to socialism.
33. As the revolution could break out in the weakest link or links of the imperialist chain, the level that imperialist capitalism has reached today has created the possibility of regional revolutions. The same situation matures the objective conditions for the transformation of revolutions of each individual country into regional revolutions and waves of world revolution, reinforcing the possibility of revolutions that trigger each other in many countries.
34. The ranks of the proletariat in the stage of imperialist globalization have widened, the material ground of its international identity has been strengthened, the difference between the social positions of the manual and intellectual labor has weakened, the proletariat and the oppressed and exploited laborer strata of the population, whose existence conditions are increasingly depleted due to rapid expropriation, have become closer to each other and the possibilities of the working class joining other oppressed around its program have strengthened.
35. In the stage of imperialist globalization, the contradiction between the genders has been sharpened due to the deepening of the contradiction between the social character of production that brings women into social life and the private character of the property which reinforces women's home-dependent position, and this constitutes the objective ground of the women's uprising and the women revolution. The exploitation of women as cheap labor has been intensified, female workers have grown in quantity, the link between sexist exploitation and surplus exploitation has been consolidated, capital production has been brought into the home on the ground of home-based precarious exploitation and merged with the domestic slavery, and the sex industry has become globalized. On this basis, the 21st century began as an age of women revolutions. The Lgbti+s, who developed into a social force, have become an important alliance force of the women revolution.
36. The destructive effects of capitalism on nature at the stage of imperialist globalization have reached the level of an ecological crisis that confronts the life of human and living beings with the threat of existence. The struggles against ecological destruction have become one of the important issues of class struggles.
37. Today, filling the gap between the objective conditions and the subjective conditions of the proletarian world revolution, and the establishment and consolidation of the communist vanguard platoons of the working class in each country carry a vital importance. The fulfillment of this task goes through a determined and uncompromising ideological struggle against the ideological attacks of the bourgeoisie and new forms of modern revisionism, as well as maoism, trotskyism, and revisionism from all colors.


CHAPTER II
COMMUNISM AND TRANSITION TO COMMUNISM

38. The ultimate purpose of the communist movement is communism, whose flag is written on the principle that is from each according to one's ability, to each according to one's needs. In the communist society, classes will have been completely eliminated, the enslaving dependence of people on the division of labor will has been abolished, the historical division of labor between men and women will has been overcome, heterosexism will has been ended, the contrasts between manual labor and intellectual labor, between urban and rural will have been obliterated, culture will has become a common property of everyone, work will has been turned into a pleasure and the primary requirement of life. The state arisen on the basis of the division of society into classes will has been disappeared, national inequalities coming from history will have been overcome and real equality will has been provided among the members of society. Communism is a world system, it will realize through the replacement of the capitalist siege by the socialist siege.
39. Socialism, which is the inevitable product of the uncompromising struggle of the proletariat against the bourgeoisie and the lower phase of communism, is a period of revolutionary transformations that corresponds to the transition from capitalism to classless society. Socialism, which has laid the social foundations of the liberation of the oppressed gender, also develops as a women revolution. Socialism carries the birth marks of the capitalist society from which it was born. Socialism applies the principle that from each according to one's ability, to each according to one's work. The proletariat destroyed the bourgeois state apparatus by the revolutionary armed struggle of the masses; it establishes its own dictatorship and engages in the construction of socialism through the use of determinant means of production. The maximum satisfaction of the masses' growing material and cultural needs is the basic economic law of socialism.
40. During the period of socialism, a hard, complex and long-lasting struggle takes place in all aspects of life between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat, the socialist path and the capitalist path, the patriarchy and the freedom of women. The proletariat, in the course of this struggle, gathers all laborers around itself and suppresses all counter-revolutionary attempts of exploitative class remnants and their foreign supporters.
41. The dictatorship of the proletariat, which is the widest democracy for the workers and other laborers, the hardest dictatorship for the overthrown exploiting classes and their remnants, is socialist democracy. The proletarian dictatorship, which gradually entrenches the wide masses of laborers and with a special effort, the working women to the administration of the state, to the economic construction of socialism, to the creation of the new human. is the only and most reliable means of struggling the bourgeoisie and the reaction, and preventing the restoration of capitalism from socialism.
42. In the system of the proletarian dictatorship, the organs of power are the Soviets. The Soviet system is based on production and territory, combining legislative and executive. The Soviet system, which arms the workers with the right to directly elect and control their own representatives, dismisses them from position at any moment, and deals a crushing blow to bureaucracy by reducing the wages of state administrators to the level of average wages, is the dictatorship of the majority on the minority and a thousand times more democratic than the most democratic bourgeois republic.
43. The dictatorship of the proletariat is the process of transition from state to statelessness. The proletariat can only sustain this dictatorship if it does not share power with any other class and it is ruled by a communist party that tightly embraces Marxism-Leninism.
44. There is a danger of restoration of capitalism under the conditions of socialism, but this is not a fate. The dictatorship of the proletariat and the communist party, by increasing vigilance against imperialist conspiracies, constantly strengthening Soviet power, educating the masses with the spirit of communism, ensuring women's equal representation, relying on a systematic struggle led by women against patriarchy in the ranks of the party and state organs, enhancing socialist democracy and mass initiative, meeting the increasing material and spiritual needs of the masses, can prevent the creation of a privileged layer and ensure the uninterrupted march towards communism.


CHAPTER III
THE FIRST STEP OF THE REVOLUTION

45. The revolution of Turkey and Kurdistan- under regional revolution conditions- bears development possibilities in the forms of a united revolution of Turkey/Northern Kurdistan, the liberation of Kurdistan on its own and united revolutions of the other three parts of Kurdistan, connected to revolutions of Iran, Syria and Iraq.
The Communist movement struggles by taking account of the whole of these revolutionary development possibilities. It sees this development as part of the Middle East regional revolution.
It works for the establishment of regional democratic or socialist federations in the Middle East, the Balkans and the Caucasus.


A) Turkey/North Kurdistan
46. Turkey, which is a financial-economic colony of imperialism and a multinational country, holding Kurdistan under colonial yoke, is a moderately developed capitalist country, where the capital oligarchy dominates, the conflict of labor-capital has become determinant, the petty commodity economy has been rapidly dissolving even though it is still widespread, the significance of the rural in economic life has decreased, the minimum political, legal, economic and social conditions of gender equality do not occur.
The shape of classes on this economic structure is as follows:
Working Class: The ranks of the working class have become inclusive of the main bodies of service and intellectual laborers and toiling state officers, making the working class, which is gathered in the major industrial cities, in a quantitative way, the majority of the total active population.
The proletariat has the strength and ability to take the political leadership of the revolution, keep the petty bourgeoisie within the alliance led by itself, and move to socialism without interruption.
The working class of Turkey and Northern Kurdistan, which suffers from lack of political freedom and has the task of preparing itself for the establishment of socialism by leading the struggle for democracy together with the economically, politically or socially oppressed class, gender, nationality, national and religious communities, is the main and leading force of the revolution.
Semi-Proletariat: The semi-proletariat, whose main body is constituted by the urban poor and poor peasantry, which is characterized by the fact that they often have to sell their workforce to make a living and has a position between the proletariat and the petty bourgeoisie, holds an important place in Turkey. The semi-proletariat, as in the democratic revolution, is the main and most reliable ally and support of the working class in the uninterrupted transition to socialism.
Petty bourgeoisie: The petty bourgeoisie, which consists of small land and workplace owners, artisans, self-employed, etc., forms the most populous part of the active population after the working class. In the globalization phase of imperialism; under conditions where the centralization and concentration of capital has reached an enormous extent and Turkey has turned into a financial-economic colony and integrated into the world market dominated by world monopolies; dispossession, impoverishment and the dissolving process of the petty bourgeoisie has accelerated. The class interests of the dissolving large portion of this stratum, whose existence possibilities have been increasingly exhausting under capitalist relations of production, coincide with the interests of the working class.
The still existing section of the petty bourgeoisie has a wobbly character due to being both, laborer and property owner. The petty bourgeoisie, which has partially sustained its weight in society despite its constant loss of strength, is under the economic exploitation of the imperialist monopolies and its collaborator, the capital oligarchy, and the political pressure of the fascist dictatorship. Therefore it has a strong revolutionary potential. Despite its constant weakening, the urban and rural petty bourgeoisie, one of the main forces of our revolution, is the strategic ally of the proletariat during the democratic revolution. The proletariat agrees to share the power that will be established in the first step of the revolution with this class. In the process of uninterrupted transition, however, the proletariat follows a policy of neutralizing the petty bourgeoisie and winning it as much as possible.
Middle bourgeoisie: The middle bourgeoisie consists of medium-sized business owners outside the collaborative monopolies in the cities and the rich peasantry in the countryside. Under the conditions of imperialist globalization, this class gradually loses its independent character, enters into the market dominated by the imperialist monopolies and the collaborative capitalist oligarchy by only depending on them, and its share in the surplus value distribution decreases, although it has an important place in the production and realization of the surplus value.
The middle-class bourgeoisie, which is an exploitative class, is on the one hand dependent on the imperialist monopolies and the capital oligarchy, and cannot survive without them, on the other hand it seeks to stretch this dependence and increase its profit share. For this reason, it wobbles between the imperialist globalist liberalism and the attempt to limit this liberalism. The latter is evolving as a reactionary-fascist political trend, which is also sometimes backed up by the anger of the working classes suffering from attacks of imperialist globalization.
The middle bourgeoisie, which is strongly attached to the existence of monopolies in the cities and has a deep fear of the proletariat and a revolution in the hegemony of it and under its leadership, is a counter-revolutionary class.
In the process of democratic revolution, the proletariat follows a policy of isolating this class as the main mediator social force. It crushes the middle bourgeoisie's sections which is an armed resistance against the revolution and seizes their property.
However, because of the national problem, the middle bourgeoisie in Northern Kurdistan has the potential to play a different role. Tactical alliances are possible with those who support the national struggle.
Collaborative monopolist bourgeoisie: This class, the collaborator of imperialism, is the owner of the order and regime in Turkey. The rural allies of this class are large agricultural capitalists. This class, independently or in partnership with them, constitutes the capital oligarchy together with the international financial, industrial and commercial monopolies which have investments in Turkey.
Our revolution will destroy the fascist dictatorship of this class, which is the center of the counter-revolution, and it will be completely expropriated and oppressed.
47. In Turkey and Northern Kurdistan, the dominance of a fascist regime that keeps the working class, laborers, Kurdish nation, women, national and religious communities within the same political grip, keeping Kurdistan under colonial yoke, various economic and social contradictions and consequences caused by the financial and economic colonial reality necessitate the proletariat to organize democratic revolution with these allies, to train itself for socialism and to prepare the political preconditions of socialism. For this reason, the first step of our revolution is the anti-fascist, anti-imperialist, anti-colonialist, gender emancipatory democratic revolution. The essence of this revolution is the acquisition of political freedom.
48. The proletariat must bring the democratic revolution to victory for the transition to the socialist revolution. Therefore, it constitutes a strategic link with the rural and urban petty bourgeoisie, national and religious communities, the Kurdish nation and the oppressed gender on the basis of its minimum program. It aims at the establishment of the power of Union of Turkey and Northern Kurdistan People's Republics.
49. The economic and social conditions of Turkey and Northern Kurdistan, the quantitative and qualitative level of development of the proletariat, makes it possible for the revolutionary proletariat to quickly switch from democratic revolution to socialist revolution. The proletariat, which is in favor of the uninterrupted revolution, does not stop in the half way, it transforms the democratic revolution into a socialist revolution, depending on the degree of unification with the rural and urban semi-proletarian masses, and on the level of consciousness, organization and preparation.
50. The communist movement considers the struggle for democracy as an extremely important task, but carrying a relative value, and dependent on the aim of socialist revolution. Therefore, it supports Kurdish national, democratic peasant, democratic women and the general democratic popular movements, embraces their demands; but on the other hand, it combines Kurdish workers, agricultural workers and women workers in class organizations apart from the general democratic movement. The revolutionary proletariat subjects reforms to revolution and treats democratic tasks from a socialist perspective. It follows the socialist patriotism in Kurdistan.
51. The democratic revolution, which is the preliminary step of the uninterrupted transition to socialism, also develops as a women revolution, dissolves the legal and institutional structure of the fascist dictatorship which has a completely patriarchal character, solves the problems of gender contradiction within the scope of political freedom, and with the tasks of ensuring equality between the unequal, relates to the oppressed gender and the oppressed gender identities on the basis of positive discrimination in all areas. The woman half of the proletariat, exempted from private ownership relations due to patriarchal privileges, is the most advanced dynamic of the advancement of uninterrupted transition of revolution to socialism. The women revolution is the requirement to secure the ultimate victory of the revolutionary proletariat.


B) Kurdistan Revolution
52. Divided into four parts, the Kurdistan Revolution is also the revolution of Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria. Although the liberation of Kurdistan on its own is possible, the attainment of political freedom in Turkey as well as these three countries, the establishment of people's republics based on the worker-laborer councils is a threshold required for the completion and assurance of the Kurdistan Revolution. It is among the primary tasks of the proletariat to ensure the federative unity of the republics of Turkish, Kurdish, Arab, Persian and other peoples of the region based on councils. The communist movement struggles for the freedom and unity of the four parts of Kurdistan.
53. The Rojava Revolution, which the Kurdish nation carried out against the reactionary Assad regime and Arab colonialism in Rojavayê (Western) Kurdistan, is an extension and acquisition of the Kurdistan Revolution, the regional revolutionary situation and the regional revolution. In Rojava, a popular democratic power has been established, based on the principle of full equality of rights, which guarantees the free and equal living of peoples. The Rojava Revolution is also a women revolution.
a) The communist movement sees defending the Rojava revolution as a direct part of the work of organizing the united revolution of Turkey and Kurdistan, deepening and maturing the revolutionary situation in the region, and for the emancipation of peoples of the region. It works to organize and develop the revolutionary defense of the country.
b) It works to develop the socialist consciousness within the masses and to prepare transition to socialist revolution with the perspective of developing independent class organization by enlightening and uniting workers and semi-proletarians from Kurdish, Arab and other peoples, the rural and urban poor, women and youth, the peoples of Rojava with socialism, and of advancing towards socialism on the path of uninterruptedness of the revolution.
c) For the continuity and the future of the revolution, it works to organize the public administration in the form of the councils and communes of the workers, laborers and the poor, and to establish these boards in an effective and permanent way.
d) To prepare the conditions for the advancement of the revolution to socialism uninterruptedly, it works on the socialization measures to strengthen the economic foundations of popular power.
54. In Başûrê (Southern) Kurdistan, it aims at the liberation and freedom of the Kurdish nation against Iraqi colonialism, imperialist occupation and regional reactionary forces.
It treats all political problems in Başûrê Kurdistan on the basis of the principle of unconditional support of the right of nations to self-determination.
It acts with the perspective of isolating the leadership of the bourgeoisie within the Kurdish national struggle, isolating the Başûrê Kurdistan bourgeoisie which represents the reconciliation and cooperation with imperialism and the colonial powers in the region, and developing the line of struggle based on the Kurdish poor and laborers.
55. It fights with the perspective of the liberation of Rojhilat, which can be realized on its own based on the developments in other parts of Kurdistan, as well as has the possibility of realization intertwined with the struggle of Iranian workers, laborers and women, and of Beluci, Azeri, Arab and other peoples under the pressure of Iranian colonialism.
