The economic crisis in Turkey is increasingly affecting the jobs of the masses, leading to organised work stops - currently especially in the heavy/metal industry. This December, Turkey's gross debt alone is 1.87 trillion Lira (approx. 200 billion Euros), almost 50% higher than a year ago. For instance, workers at the Baldur factory in Çayırova organised a strike as a result of the dismissal announcements, which the police stormed at around 5am and arrested four workers and a union manager.

According to several Indian media some militant actions with a huge amount of involved masses took place the last days in the ongoing People´s War in India, led by the CPI(Maoist).

Last week, the death of comrade Muharrem (Ferdi Tosun), an advanced TIKKO guerrilla who was killed in the same operation as comradeDeniz was announced. The actions of the TKP/ML and the TIKKO are nevertheless growing again, confirming the words that the losses caused by the attacks on the bases in Dersim strengthen the determination and unity in the party and thus are the starting point of a new upswing of the people's war. Thus, on December 15, in Maltepe-Cevizli, the "Ensar Foundation," an institution for mainly "religious education" recognized by the Turkish government as " charitable" and known as a place of child abuse, where 45 children were raped in 2016 alone, was burned down by TKP/ML militants. The action was dedicated to Rosa and Asmin, comrades who also died in Dersim; the statement said:

The contradictions in Iraqi Kurdistan have come to a head in recent weeks. The people are rebelling against the corrupt ruling parties, which are dominated primarily by the two extended families Barsani and Talabani.

Also in the first weeks of December, various media reported on actions by or encounters with the PLGA led y the CPI(Maoist) in Peoples' War in India. In the following we will report on some of them.

In the following, we want to give a brief overview of some (alleged) action of the People's Liberation Guerrilla Army under the leadership of the Communist Party of India (Maoist), in the ongoing People's War.

Last week, the "Ezilenian Sosyalist Partisi'nin" (ESP), the "Socialist Party of the Oppressed", organised a commemoration ceremony in honour of the revolutionaries who died in Turkey in the recent past in which representatives of different struggling parties, including the Partizan, participated. The ceremony was held in the face of the "ideological, political, military and organisational" attack by the old Turkish state in its offensive against the guerrilla areas, which caused considerable loss and destruction for the revolutionaries, and collectively underlined the consciousness of the reality of the struggle and the organisation based on it.
