Communist PartyYesterday, sunday, at 18:45 local time, a car bomb exploded in the Kızılay district of Ankara. The officials say at least 27 were dead and 75 were wounded. This is the third attack in Ankara killing more than 150 people in total since last October. The Communist Party (KP) released a statement a couple of hours after the bomb attack.

For the last eight days, we have been making every effort to have our dead and seriously wounded citizens who are trapped in the basement of an apartment building in Cizre—among them many dead and seriously wounded—transferred to hospital. Our efforts to clear what that is being called the “basement of savagery” (vahşet bodrumu) have continued again today without interruption from 7 am until 3 pm.

The medical teams and the municipality ambulance waiting ready at the Cizre municipality set out at around 09:30 am this morning for the building where the wounded are, after the required assurances were granted by the Crisis Coordination Desk formed under the coordination of the Prime Ministry, the Ministry of Interior, and the Ministry of Health. At our request, Ministry of Health ambulances joined the municipality ambulance on the way to the building. We became aware that the ambulances and the medical teams would only have permission to approach to a point around 150-200 meters away from the exit through which they could carry the wounded and the bodies of the dead. As the ambulances were on route, we maintained uninterrupted phone connections with both the Crisis Coordination Desk and with the wounded in the basement.

World Federation of Democratic YouthThe World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY) strongly condemns the terrorist bombing attack that occurred in Istanbul yesterday. So far, no terrorist organization has taken the responsibility, although the effect of death and terror imparted to ordinary citizens, shifts the importance of this aggression to another level. It is now a worldwide phenomenon, that within imperialism the obscurantist violence and the terrorist attacks are materials that enhances the brutal and aggressive policy of the imperialists and the governments that serves them.

Communist PartyNo doubt that the government will once again step up and declare that "they were right" after this incident. We will not let this happen! The AKP government has blood on its hands, and will pay for it!

Communist Party, TurkeyCommunist Party, TurkeyWe cannot let the death to taken for granted. Turkey had discussed the massacre of 1 May 1977 for 40 years. It had to discuss, question and refuse to get used to it.

Maraş, Çorum, Sivas... Roboski, Suruç... When one starts adding three dots or the clause “et catera”, the death becomes ordinary. They accustom us to massacres and bloodshed.

A society that keeps the massacre in 1977 in the agenda for years is for sure healthier. They target the health of the society through bloodshed. In order to let it be all the more blindfolded and paralyzed...

Free Workers UnionFree Workers UnionThe German anarcho-syndicalist trade union FAU issued a statement on the massacre in Ankara:
