Partisan Martyrs and Prisoners Families (PŞTA) held a commemoration event within the scope of “Party and Revolution Martyrs Commemoration Week”.

With the sentence “Neither the suffering has ended for the relatives of the martyrs nor the responsibilities imposed on them by the children of the martyrs”, it was explained that this was also valid for the relatives of the prisoners.
“WE SHOULD ORGANIZE AGAINST PRESSURE”
While it is emphasized that the prisoners can resist all kinds of oppression because they are organized, “Their success in being strong, showing solidarity, acting together, stopping and even regressing the oppression in difficult and continuous pressure conditions should be an example for us.” It was said.
While it is said that organization has been a burning need from past to present, “In the period we are going through, it is necessary to come forward to respond to this need. “We must see that both families and prisoners need studies in this direction.” It was said.

It is mentioned that the martyrs chose a way of death where living means resisting and said, “They chose to rebel against the rulers who imposed misery, ignorance, submission and helplessness on the people of the society they were born into. “They devoted their lives to the future of the people.” It was said.
Then, in the statement, which touched upon the increasingly severe economic crisis, it was mentioned that not only a government but the entire system should be considered responsible as the cause of poverty. While it was explained that this was a period when local elections were on the agenda, it was emphasized that the real governing power of the municipalities was the state and that successful work could not be done for the people in this system.
“We are experiencing economic crises where others are getting rich. Again, we are forced to make choices that others will win. It is possible to stand against them all. This has been achieved in the past. It will also be achieved in the future. Moreover, we have to do this as humanity. “We will decide this by organizing.” The speech ended by touching on the importance of organization with these words.
The event ended after the group İsyan Ateşi took the stage.
