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 2002.[3] The Constitutional Court didn't allow the renaming, because there is already the Türkiye Komünist Partisi with same name.[4] Following that, the party started to use "Toplumcu Kurtuluş Partisi" name again and changed abbreviation from TKP 1920 to 1920 TKP.[5]

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.[6][7]
