Hursit Kulter, Sirnak provincial steering committee member of the Democratic Regions Party, was last heard from on 27 May 2016 when he was being arrested by security forces. No word has been received from him since. Cases of disappearance under custody had not been seen for years. This practice was a part of the so-called “1993 concept”, which was, in plain parlance, a dirty war waged on civilian Kurdish politicians in the early 1990s. 2015 witnessed a resurgence of the 1993 concept. The case of Kulter unfortunately seems to threaten a rehash of that hideous policy of disappearance as well....

Six women members of the Revolutionary Workers’ Party (DIP) of Turkey are being persecuted for their activity around the International Working Women’s Day. On 6 March 2016, the six women were distributing a DIP leaflet appealing to women to join the action to be held on women’s day in the main square of Çorlu, an industrial working class city west of Istanbul, when police took them under custody because there was reference to state repression of Kurdish women in the text of the leaflet.

The downing of the Russian warplane by the Turkish air force has signalled the threat of an outright regional or even world war with devastating consequences for humanity. This is one episode of the torment to which Syria has been subjected as a result of the intervention of imperialism and the trio Saudi Arabia-Qatar-Turkey pushing their Sunni sectarian agenda. Our parties are resolutely against the further escalation of the tension between the Russian Federation and Turkey and condemn the policies that have led to this delicate situation that threatens a war of catastrophic dimensions.

The immense catastrophe that struck Turkey in the streets of Ankara, the capital city, on 10 October, when two bombs exploded in the midst of a thronging crowd of what would possibly turn out to be hundreds of thousands of people, leading to the death of an indefinite number of people, in any case exceeding one hundred, and the wounding of hundreds, some still under the risk of death, is a sharp reminder, if any were needed, that this is a country undergoing a severe political crisis.
Turkey is rapidly being transformed into another Syria. Terrorists protected by the state explode bombs in the midst of tens, maybe even hundreds of thousands of people in the capital city of Ankara. Over one hundred deaths, close to four hundred wounded… And this massacre is taking place in a Turkey where the government has not lifted a finger to go after the perpetrators of the pre-election explosions in Mersin, Adana and Diyarbakir and the bombing in Suruç on July 20. Thus even before attempting to figure out who the perpetrators are this time, we can point our finger at the AKP...

So at long last, despite all the meanders and sideways and detours of history, the logic of social struggles has finally put its stamp on the politics of Turkey. The resounding defeat of Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his AKP at the polls in the 7th June general elections in Turkey brings out into the open a loss of political clout on the part of Erdogan as a result of the successive blows he received in the last two years at the hand of the masses and, partly, his erstwhile partners.

Turkey is going through a period that brings together an electoral process and a big strike movement with a great potential of leaving its imprint on the future of the country. General elections are taking place on Sunday, 7th June. The decisive question in those elections is whether the HDP, People’s Democracy Party, controlled by the Kurdish movement with the support of a series of Turkish socialist parties and groups of different stripes, is going to attain the electoral threshold of 10 per cent required of a party in order to take any seats in parliament.
