Toplumsal Esitlik (TE–the Social Equality Group), the sympathizing group of the International Committee of the Fourth International (ICFI) in Turkey, has changed its name to Sosyalist Esitlik (SE–Socialist Equality Group).
There are two reasons for this name change. (1) The SE is assuming a name in line with that of all the official sections of the ICFI (Socialist Equality Party, Sozialistische Gleichheitspartei, Parti de l’égalité socialiste) and thereby stressing its determination to become the Turkish section of the Fourth International. (2) By adopting the word “socialist” in the group’s name, the SE underscores its basic goal: uniting the Middle Eastern workers and youth across all national, ethnic, religious and sectarian lines with their class brothers and sisters internationally to overthrow capitalism and build a socialist society.
