The Revolutionary Socialist Workers' Party (Turkish: Devrimci Sosyalist İşçi Partisi, DSİP) is a Trotskyist party in Turkey. It was founded by Şevket Doğan Tarkan and his friends from Trotskyist journal Socialist Worker in 1997. The group had links to far-left Kurtuluş Hareketi (Liberation Movement) before the 1980 Turkish coup d'état.
An opposition grouping within DSİP named Antikapitalist was formed following a split in DSİP. The group had no relation with DSİP after that split.
The party did not participate in elections in Turkey but supported left-wing electoral alliances. At the 2007 elections, they declared support for the independent candidates of Democratic Society Party.
