Two related violent Communist/separatist groups.
- Devrimci Sol, a.k.a. Dev Sol -- Marxist group founded in 1978, virulently anti-NATO -- http://www.ozgurluk.org/dhkc/pub/revleft/index.html
- Devrimci Halk Kurtulus Partisi - Cephesi DHKP-C, Revolutionary Peoples' Liberation Party - Front.
PKK splinter groups -- Or sub-groups, or groups
supporting the PKK, or something similar.
- People's Liberation Army of Kurdistan -- ARGK -- http://argk.org/argk/
- National Liberation Front of Kurdistan -- ERNK http://argk.org/ernk/index.html
- The Free Women's Union of Kurdistan http://argk.org/yajk/index.html
- Also see the section on Greece, as many (most?) ``Kurdish'' groups operating in or against Turkey are actually supported by Greek communist organizations.
- Mazlumder -- A hard-line Islamist organization highly critical of the western-oriented government: http://www.mazlumder.org/
- Anti Grey Wolves -- The Grey Wolves are a popular political party in Turkey. There's an ``anti-fascist'' (usually code for ``communist'') page that seems more anti-Turkey than anything else -- http://users.westnet.gr/~cgian/gwolves.htm
- MLKP -- Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Turkey http://member.aol.com/ilkbirlik/
- Partizan -- Turkish, anti-government and with pictures of Marx, Engels (?), Lenin, Stalin, and Mao on their web page: http://www.partizan.org/
- Widerstand -- Looks German-based, and pro-communist, what with the ``anti-imperialist'' and ``internationalist'' tell-tale codewords: http://www.nadir.org/nadir/periodika/widerstand/
- Ozgurpolitika -- Turkish-language European publication, pro-Kurdish. http://ozgurpolitika.org
- Solidariteitsgroep Turkije-Kurdistan -- A Dutch group backing Kurdish separatists in Turkey, and seeming rather pro-communist in their choice of links. http://www.xs4all.nl/~stk/
- Pro-Armenian Pages -- Everyone, even the Turkish Republic, admits that there was a huge genocide of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire at the beginning of this century. But when the Turkish Republic was established in 1923, they disavowed any connection to that. Many Armenians still maintain that modern Turkey has unacceptable treatment of ethnic Armenians. Turkey still refuses to maintain diplomatic relations with Armenia, even though it is a neighboring country, and the border has been closed ``for security reasons'' for several years now.
- The Kurdistan section -- as the Kurds see it, much of Kurdistan is in today's Turkey, and the militant groups, particularly the PKK, have concentrated their activity in south-eastern Turkey.
- The Greece and communist sections -- many anti-Turkey groups are actually some combination of Greek communist.
