EMEPOn the night on 15 July, Turkey witnessed a take-over of some critical points in two major cities by soldiers. The plotters took over the headquarters of the Turkish Armed Forces General Staff and the Gendarmerie General Command, an air base and Istanbul Atatürk Airport. The Chief Commanders of the armed forces were detained. Fighter Jets were flying low over cities and later, joined by helicopters, bombed certain targets including TBMM (Turkish Parliament Building), the vicinity of the headquarters of the General Staff and Special Forces Command.

Without enough preparation and power, the plotters, perhaps forced to act by the circumstances and possibly abandoned by sections of the armed forces that pledged support, arrived at a dead end within a matter of hours.

WikileaksToday, 11pm Anakara Time, WikiLeaks releases part one of the AKP Emails. AKP, or the Justice & Development Party, is the ruling party of Turkey and is the political force behind the country's president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Part one of the series covers 762 mail boxes beginning with 'A' through to 'I' containing 294,548 email bodies together with many thousands of attached files. The emails come from "akparti.org.tr", the AKP's primary domain. The most recent was sent on July 6, 2016. The oldest dates back to 2010. It should be noted that emails associated with the domain are mostly used for dealing with the world, as opposed to the most sensitive internal matters.

Communist Party, Turkey1.  July 15th coup attempt has not brought ideologically conflicting centers subject to each other, but involved at least two and even more state cliques, which have identical class identities and ideologies. It is not possible that these cliques would be totally unaware of each other's plans and actions just like it is being impossible to dissociated them. However the attempt on 15th of July is not a bloody scenario totally planned by Erdoğan as some claimed so, but is a real coup attempt.

Communist PartyThe Communist Party is calling on our people to organize in the Party's ranks against the enemies of the people and humanity. The liberation is in our own hands.

We do not have all the details of what happened during the coup attempt that took place in Turkey in the hours between July 15 and July 16.

However, we know very well that plans that are supported by foreign forces, that do not take its power from the working class can not defeat AKP darkness and solve Turkey's problems.

People's Democratic PartyPeople's Democratic PartyWe reproduce a statement of the left, pro-kurdish People's Democratic Party (HDP):

In this challenging and critical days which Turkey goes through, whatever its reason might be, no one should put himself in the place of the people’s will.

The HDP is opposed to any kind of coup under any circumstances and as a principle.

Communist PartyWe reject getting used to massacres, bomb attacks, and political murders.
We reject putting up with a government that always tries to present massacres, bomb attacks, and political murders as ordinary events.
We reject keeping silent against a government that interferes in other countries’ internal affairs, that instigates terrorists to attack those lands, and that backs those same terrorists in the name of “sacred values” in its own country.

World Federation of Trade UnionsThe World Federation of Trade Unions extends its condolences to the working class and the people of Turkey in the eve of the tragic events in the International Airport of Istanbul that took place on June 28th, 2016. The WFTU denounces such acts and the culprits of such acts.

World Federation of Trade UnionsThe World Federation of Trade Unions addresses the international public opinion and the workers of the world and denounces the presence of NATO forces in the Aegean Sea, allegedly responding to the waves of refugees traveling towards Europe.

The imperialist intervention of the USA, the NATO and the EU, Turkey, Israel and the Gulf Monarchies against the people of Syria and other peoples of the region has led to the death of hundreds of thousands of people and has forced millions to become refugees and live in poverty. This imperialist intervention has now become even deeper and this activity is the reason for the millions of refugees and displaced people.

World Federation of Democratic YouthThe World Federation of Democratic Youth condemns the new murdering attack that took place in the city centre of Istanbul. Τhe attack caused the death of 5 people and dozens are injured. This is the second attack within few days that took place in Turkey, while the last one took place 6 days ago in the city of Ankara and caused the death of 37 people.

The imperialist action of Turkey which is ruled by the government of AKP is actually driving the country in a chaotic situation creating to the people a daily fear. The World Federation of Democratic Youth has clarified a lot of times that the root of the problem is found in the imperialist plans and actions. The action of Turkey in the Middle East has to do with the forwarding of the imperialist plans and benefits, on the same time that it enjoys the support of NATO and the EU.

The government is responsible for the bloodshed

The bomb attack in Ankara, in which students, workers, many innocent citizens lost their lives, is an attack to all of us, all the mankind.

The culprits are trying to make our people get used to bomb attacks, violence, terror and chaos. Turkey is being tried to be brought to an ungovernable status. They are trying to terrify the people and make them stay away from politics. They are trying to intimidate the people and thus overcome ungovernableness by intervention of a "super" force. They are trying to legitimise alternatives like a coup d'etat or imperialist intervention.

Communist PartyYesterday, sunday, at 18:45 local time, a car bomb exploded in the Kızılay district of Ankara. The officials say at least 27 were dead and 75 were wounded. This is the third attack in Ankara killing more than 150 people in total since last October. The Communist Party (KP) released a statement a couple of hours after the bomb attack.
