The Socialist Liberation Party (Turkish: Toplumcu Kurtuluş Partisi, 1920 TKP) is a Marxist–Leninist communist party in Turkey.

The party was founded as "Toplumcu Kurtuluş Partisi" on 7 February 2012. The party changed its name to "Türkiye Komünist Partisi" on 15 February 2012.[4] The Constitutional Court didn't allow the renaming, because there was already a party with same name, i.e. Türkiye Komünist Partisi.[5] Following that, the party started using the name "Toplumcu Kurtuluş Partisi" again and changed the abbreviation from TKP 1920 to 1920 TKP.[6]

Until 2016, the Socialist Liberation Party was one of the components in the United June Movement, a political coalition initiative which was founded after Gezi Park revolt.[7][8]
