Date: 30 November 2003 Statement: 319
After the four bomb attacks, which came up in Istanbul on November
15th and 20th, some countries of Europe and organs of the European
Union took decisions towards Turkey.
The Commission of the European Union has cancelled the activities of
different commissions of the EU in Turkey, under the pretext that
Turkey wouldn’t be a “secure country”.
Activities and official visits wont’t be carried out, if they aren’t
absolutely necessary. The UEFA has cancelled two international games
in Turkey, stating that Turkey wouldn’t be a “secure country”...
Several European countries, from England to Denmark (and USA) called
their citizens “not to travel to Turkey”.
Was it the first time, that bombs exploded in Turkey? Or is Turkey
the first country in which bombs exploded?
Did the European Union ever take such a decision against other
Or; why didn’t the European Union take such a decision, in times when
the live security in Turkey was much more under threat?
Why? In the first place the European people should questioned this
What is it that Europe fears?
Where have the European states and the institutions of the EU been,
while in Turkey extralegal executions, disappearance, unknown
perpetrators, the destruction and emptying of villages continued? Why
did they then ignore “that there was no live security in Turkey”?
There’s no secret about these practices, the governments have started
their period of terror in the name of “total war” and the streets and
villages were turned into a bloodbath.
Do you for instance remember Lice? Any contact within and outside the
country was cut off, it has been burned and destroyed, tens of people
were killed.... Or in the near past the neighbourhood Armutlu in
Istanbul was surrounded, and the death squads committed an announced,
Where has European democracy and the fear of security been, while the
islamic forces who made the recent bomb attacks, where educated in
the police centers and military barracks and when the number of
“unknown perpetrators” surged up to ten thousands?
Everybody knows about it; The ECHR has countless files and documents
Where have these EU institutions been at that time? Why didn’t the
imperialist European states tell their citizens “not to go to
Turkey”? when all these things happened?
And one more question: Where has the EU been during the massacre in
the prisons, between 19-22 December 2000? They didn’t fear at all
that “violence”. Because it was “official violence”; the “violence of
the state”. Because it were the imperialist European states itself,
who decided this “violence”, the European Union.
Criticism, fear, warning of its citizens aside, they applouded it as
Now they continue to applaud the massacre in the F-Type prisons.
While the number of deaths is growing day by day, month by month and
is passing hundreds, the European states, the EU didn’t even cancel
one meeting that was held in Turkey. They didn’t say that there was
“terrorism” in Turkey, didn’t tell not to go there!
Is the fear of those who say ‘do not go to Turkey’ and who cancel
their activities in Turkey really in relation with democracy, human
rights, life security, or with the interests of the monopolies?
The European Union and the related institutions should answer to this
The European people, should demand an answer for this from its own
The reality that everyone can see who follows the events and
developments is: The reason for this decision is not the “life
security” of the European people, but the computation of the European
monopolies. If it is in their interest, they do not care about four
bombs. Even if there would explode four hundred bombs in Istanbul,
the EU would neither cancel its activities nor call its citizens “not
to go to Turkey!”.
For the interests of the monopolies neither the lives the peoples of
neocolonialist countries like Turkey, nor of its own people has any
From time to time the EU is also criticising the “attacks on
democratic institutions” in Turkey.
It is using its criticism to deal with the oligarchy. But the same
Europe doesn’t hesitate to attack revolutionaries and democrats
within its own borders.
The one thing that is always valid is the interest of the European
The European Union doesn’t think about the life security of the
people in its last decision on Turkey.
The EU should explain the reality; it should explain the real aim
behind these decisions.
This decision cannot be explained with demagogies of “terrorism,
violence and security”.
Let’s look at the past 23 years of Turkey; It has been the European
monpolies who supported the state terror. All governments, who
carried out juntas, executions, massacres, disappearances, and
murders of unknown perpetrators were supported by Europe. It is the
European states who support the imperialist terror. Europe was
involved in all imperialist attacks that were realized since 1991 in
Iraq, Afghanistan and the Balcans.
That’s why also the EU is among those responsible for the bombings in
The EU should stop to use the pretext of violence, human rights and
fear for life security; it should tell the truth to its own people.
As long as this reality is not being exposed, the European people
won’t understand who is leading it, whose interests are defended by
the European Union.
Our call to the peoples of Europe!
Do not go to Turkey! But not because the EU is telling this; for the
interests of its monopolies they tell you today not to go, but
tomorrow they even suggest it to you...
You should not go to Turkey, because you shouldn’t support the
fascism of Turkey in direct or indirect way. To give credits to
Turkey, to spend holidays there or to feed it with foreign currency
means to support fascism.
It means to support the oppression of the oligarchy against the
people and the imperialist politics of collaboration. It is neither
in the interest of the European people nor of the people of Turkey to
We call upon the European people, not to be on the side of fascism in
Turkey, but on the side of the struggle for right and freedom of the
people in Turkey. Do not give any support to the fascist regime that
is oppression the people!
