The purpose of this article is to introduce the new
English edition of our pamphlet on the Left Wing of the Turkish Communist Party
(Türkiye Komünist Partisi, TKP), which will be serialised in the following
issues of the Review. The first
edition of the pamphlet was published in 2008 by the Turkish group
Enternasyonalist Komünist Sol (Internationalist Communist Left, EKS), which had
already at the time adopted the ICC's basic positions as a statement of
principle, and had begun to discuss the ICC's Platform.
