PRESIDENT of the Atatürk Society UK Jale Özer shared a message for the New Year saying: “What we went through in 2020 is an indication that 2021 will be a much tougher year.
In our country where democracy and freedoms are restricted, rights, law, justice are destroyed, abuse, violence and deaths against women are at the highest point, the gains of the Republic are either sold or evacuated, insults to the founding will are almost encouraged, while the people are rapidly impoverished, and some of the groups are getting rich. If we add the Covid-19 epidemic period to all these devastating negativities, we see that the coronavirus pandemic period is the importance of the nation state’s policy of full independence in health, economy, politics, education, agriculture, our Great Leader, Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. ‘Reputation is as important as what was established under the leadership of the Republic of Turkey’s founding philosophy has revealed once again…
We are nationally unhappy, but we are never hopeless. Because we say, “There are no hopeless situations, there are hopeless people. I have never lost my hope.” We are the children of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who said, “With this consciousness, all patriots are within the framework of the enlightenment, fully independent and anti-imperialist roadmap that our Ata showed us, right, law and justice at the forefront, growing in the light of reason and science. We call on to join forces and do our work in this direction.
In the light of the statement of our Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk: “Concepts such as equality, freedom and democracy can only be used if we have a national state and an independent secular Republic”, by promising that we will never let the tree of hope within us, that great Republican plane, to dry out. and we are entering with that great responsibility and sense of duty that falls on us.
The year 2021 ‘Gallop come from Far Asia; stretching like a mare’s head to the Mediterranean; we enter this country by reading our ‘lines. This invitation, this fight and this love are ours.”
