fight4afrin communique I - 14.03.18: Breaking the silence - Organize the resistance

category international | anti-war / imperialism | press release author Thursday March 15, 2018 18:17author by fight4afrinauthor email figth4afrin at riseup dot net Report this post to the editors

Since the beginning of the fascist war in Afrin, anti fascists carried the war back to the places where it is approved, concealed, supported and made possible. Until now, in more than 70 actions in 9 different countries, the agitators and intellectual arsonists of this war, aswell as the ones who profit from it, were called to account. Different revolutionary groups and structures are accomplishing their historical responsibilities, and have joined our call and actions. We send them our fiercest greetings.

communique I - 14.03.18:
Breaking the silence - Organize the resistance

"It is not a matter of wishing success to the victim of aggression, but
of sharing his fate; and accompany him/her until death or victory."Che
Guevara

54 days of resistance in Afrin. 54 days where the self-defense forces of
YPG / YPJ inflicted heavy blows to the fascist hordes. The AKP / MHP
government of Turkey, and its barbaric ground forces from ISIS and
Al-Nusra, are only advancing through massacres and the use of advanced
military technology. For almost two months, NATO's second largest army,
together with islamist mercenaries and with the approval of Russia, have
been murdering, raping, looting and destroying Afrin.

We are against the war and against the Turkish fascism supported by the
international community. Millions of people worldwide are protesting
against this injustice, but the responsibles of the massacre are not
listening. While the bombs and rifles in Afrin do not rest, and the
stranglehold of fascism gets tighter around the city, the nights in the
heart of the beast are lit with flames of solidarity.

People are carrying this war back to the places where it is approved,
concealed, supported and made possible. Until now, in more than 70
actions in 9 different countries, the agitators and intellectual
arsonists of this war, aswell as the ones who profit from it, were
called to account. Different revolutionary groups and structures are
accomplishing their historical responsibilities, and have joined our
call and actions. We send them our fiercest greetings.

Answering the first call of fight4afrin, at least 22 acts of resistance
[link] have been carried out against fascist institutions and their
supporters. Government parties, centers of fascist propaganda, arms
companies and their financial partners, police, army and other NATO
structures were among our targets. Fire against MIT agents in France,
against fascist propaganda institutions of the DITIB and against NATO
army vehicles in Germany, against the Turkish consulate in Greece,
against the arms company Leonardo-Finmeccanica in Italy. These and many
other actions, such as attacks against banks and against the capital
that made this war possible, are some examples of what we are able to do.

These actions were responses to the cruel war of extermination against
the people and revolution in Rojava. Those who claim this action have
been done by Kurds alone are wrong. The attempt made by the
nation-states and the media conglomerates to hold the Kurdish diaspora
responsible for the past and future actions, is an attempt to reduce a
political conflict to an ethnic conflict, an attempt to criminalize
Kurdish people once again and look for the enemy outside. When we claim
to be revolutionary cells in the heart of the beast, we are no lying.

The revolution in Rojava is developing an alternative to capitalism,
patriarchy and racism. It is an expression of the society emancipation
from rule and state. This revolution is not just a revolution of the
Kurds, it is a revolution of all people who fight for freedom and
justice in this world. And that's why we decided not only to protest
against this war, but to end it. Russia and NATO, the US and the
European states, are responsible for this war. They have the influence
to bring it to an end, and if this does not happen we will continue our
actions.

As soon as the first Turkish flag waves over Afrin, we will move on to a
new phase of resistance. If the fascist forces of the AKP / MHP / ISIS /
Al Nusra set foot in the city of Afrin, we will take our global actions
qualitatively and quantitatively to a new level. We make a call in
solidarity with the people of Afrin, to continue and intensify the
actions in all their diversity and radicality, and to make all necessary
preparations in the event of the invasion of the city.

For the rulers of this world: there is only one way to stop us. Stop the
attacks on Rojava, stop the war in Afrin.
