CONGRATULATORY MESSAGE OF EEK TO DIP ‘S COMRADES DUE TO THE LATEST LEGAL BATTLE AND PRINCIPLED STRUGGLE AGAINST STATE REPRESSION

 
Dear Comrades of the DIP, dear Comrade Armagan, dear Comrade Sungur,

The Central Committee and all the members  of the EEK, we  salute you and we hail  with enthusiasm the great victory  in the latest legal battle and your principled struggle against State repression and for all the rights of the Turkish working class and Kurdish peoples, for freedom, social justice and Socialism!
The political significance of this victory  cannot be underestimated as it came in one of the most difficult moments, when hysteria on  terrorism is used by State terrorism all over the world to strangulate freedom and repress the emerging new wave of emancipatory and  revolutionary struggles  in the conditions of a deepening world capitalist crisis.
We are proud for the  courageous stand of our DIP women comrades in court , showing to  everybody  what  dignity  means for real revolutionaries.
 
Your victory is our victory too, a victory of your brothers and sisters on the other side of the Aegean, the Greek working class and oppressed confronting the  viciousness and brutality of capitalism and  imperialism, of "austerity",the endless nightmare of measures of  social cannibalism on our people  imposed by the EU, the IMF, the ruling classes and their  capitalist governments in Greece and in Europe.  We know very well in our own bitter  experience what means  State repression, prisons,  and  trials( the EEK has already two this week only) - but we know too very well  how stronger we come always after  each of these confrontations with  our class enemy.

Your  victorious battle has an international content and importance. It is, a source of inspiration  for all fighters for Trotskyism, for the Refoundation of the Fourth International  and world Socialism, and particularly  for the youth and for women in struggle for social emancipation.  

Long live the DIP!
Long live the Fourth International!
Forward for the world socialist revolution!

on behalf of the CC of the EEK, Greek Section of the CRFI
