Right now it is very unclear who is behind it, but our comrades like Turkish Workers Party and other Eurasianist forces are with the drive against Erdogan so I trust their judgment on the ground as to where our own support should be directed. The prospect of the globalist, capitalist and zionist enemy being driven out of control of Turkey is cause to rejoice.
As you can observe from international news, there are growing waves of protests all over Turkey against AKP government which has been acting as a dictator for ten years. The resistance against fascist forces of AKP dictatorship began with the protests of the small group against destruction of the Gezi Park, only green area in Taksim. After police forces’ massive and brutal attacks to protesters, protests became widespread both in Istanbul and the rest of Turkey. These protests represent the awakening of Turkish nation to defend the right of assembly and democratic protests, freedom of express and the idea of democratic society. Last four days police forces are attacking to people with tear gas, Agent Orange and water cannon. On the other hand fascist groups who are carrying iron clubs are attacking to people brutally wherever they see a protester.
These revolts that we are witnessing in Turkey are seemingly derived from environmentalist reasons, i. d. opposition to a project that involved the destruction of a park for the construction of a shopping complex. But beneath this appearance hides a widespread discontent of a part of the Turkish population about the Erdogan’s administration; overall in recent years. This last Erdogan’s term, which began in 2011, was accompanied by wrong choices, especially in foreign policy, such as support for terrorism in two neighboring countries: Syria and Iraq. A part of the Turkish people then criticizes Erdogan for his approach, judged too one-sided and perhaps authoritarian.
Turkey, you know, has great strategic and geopolitical importance and it is essential for Russia and for the globalist / Atlanticist front; the AKP government has never been seen with benevolence by the latter, because, while continuing to be part of NATO, Ankara had taken important steps towards a "full sovereignty" . It is also very important not to forget that Turkey is a little indebted country, which has also recently refused loans of IMF and preferred to triple - by 2023 - the presence of financial institutions, in compliance with Islamic law (this affectes equally to public banks as Halkbank and Ziraat Bank). That is to say that Turkey does not get into line with the trends of "globalization." But about Syrian crisis, Erdogan - and that is against his policy of "zero problems with neighbors" - hoped to gain the confidence of Western powers, but it is likely that his plan has failed, at least judging by the comments of Western media which applaud the "revolt" against the new "Sultan" and the Islamic intolerance ...
Claudio Mutti: The slogans about "human rights" and "democracy", the Femen's performances, the solidarity expressed by Madonna and other hollywoodian stars, the antifa rhetoric peppered with "Bella ciao" as its soundtrack are the symptoms of an "orange revolution" or a "Turkish spring", rather than of a national revolution. At present it is impossible to know if the troubles have broken out in a spontaneous way, or if really foreign agents have provoked the troubles, as pretended by Erdogan. But we must consider that US Ambassador Francis Ricciardone has repeated twice in two days his message in favour of protesters and that John Kerry has made a declaration about the right of protesting. Certainly, among the protesters there are also militants and activists of national, anti-Atlantist and also pro-Eurasian movements (as, for example, the Workers' Party, İşçi Partisi); but I don't think that they are in the position to direct a so heterogeneous mass towards the goal of a national revolution.
