A little EKS history

Yo,

What are: your origins, your activity, your political trajectory etc. Are you present in Kurdistan, amongst the diaspora in Europe?

Thanks

your origins

We are in a direct organisational line with the original Turkish Communist Party formed at the People's Congress of the East in Baku wink
Er no...We we formed about two, and a half years ago by students who had moved to the communist left after splitting from anarchism, and workers who had been around anarchism/left communism for decades.

your activity,

We publish a four page monthly bulletin on workers struggles, and hope to soon produce a bi-annual theoretical magazine. We also publish leaflets for demonstrations, and strikes, hold public meetings etc.

your political trajectory

Forwards smile

No, but about half of the membership are from Kurdish backgrounds.

No, we have good contacts in both Germany, and the UK, though. We think that there are deep problems with the exile mentality, and would advise Turkish comrades living in other countries to join organisations in those countries.
