Devrimci Yol

Devrimci Yol (Revolutionary Path, short Dev-Yol) was a movement rather than a tightly structured organization, with many supporters in trade unions and other professional institutions. Its ideology was based on Marxism-Leninism but rejected both the Soviet and the Chinese model. Devrimci Yol entered the political scene in Turkey on 1 May 1977 with its manifesto called bildirge. The roots can be seen in a movement that called itself Devrimci Gençlik (Revolutionary Youth, short Dev-Genç). Dev-Yol followed the thesis of the People's Liberation Party-Front of Turkey (Turkish abbreviation THKP-C) expressed by Mahir Çayan.
