Communist Party of Turkey

 

(CPT, Türkiye Komiinist Partisi), a party founded at a congress in September 1920 and bringing together Communist organizations operating in Istanbul, Anatolia, and outside the country. The congress adopted a program and rules, declared its agreement with the resolutions of the Comintern, and elected directing bodies.

The Communists of Turkey were active in the national liberation struggle of the Turkish people in 1918–22. In January 1921 the CPT suffered a grave blow when 15 of its leading figures, including Mustafa Siibhi, the chairman of the party, were murdered. In 1923 the reactionary forces of Turkey had the party banned, and it has been illegal ever since. Despite difficult conditions,

the CPT staged a series of large demonstrations of the working masses during World War II against the policy of collaboration with fascist Germany espoused by Turkish reactionary circles; the demonstrations called for the establishment of friendly relations with the Soviet Union. The CPT was repeatedly subjected to harsh repression, especially in 1944 and 1951, when many activists and party leaders were arrested. The party has consistently supported the vital interests of the working masses, and it has stood for a genuinely independent democratic Turkey, for the country’s withdrawal from the NATO and CENTO military blocs, and for the elimination of American bases on Turkish soil.

Representatives of the CPT participated in the work of the international Conferences of Communist and Workers’ Parties (1957,1960, and 1969 in Moscow). The CPT approved the documents adopted by the conferences.
