[Audio] Speech by Mehdi Kabar, on behalf of the group Anarchists solidarity Rojava at the meeting to support KobanÃ, November 10 in Paris at Theatre Gym. A meeting duplex with Narin Afrin, Commander of YPG in the city, in the presence of Saleh Moslim, Co-PYD, and several French support. Previews. ---- Photos: Feyka http://www.alternativelibertaire.org/?D-ou-que-vienne-l-aide-la-gauche ---- The room was packed, Monday, November 10, under the gilded theater Gymnasium, Paris 10e (metro Bonne Nouvelle). A strong presence of the Kurdish diaspora, but also many and many French activists from their support. ---- We came to listen to the necessary speech of solidarity with the resistance of the YPG-YPJ to Kobanà but evidence, the public did not come to that slap. He also listened with great attention that said the women speakers and speakers on military support that Arab-US op coalition has brought KobanÃ.

Needed support, since he saved the city, but heavy ambiguities, because the imperialist ambitions of Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United States, Britain and France in the Middle East .

Moreover, due to the reversal of the great powers in favor of KobanÃ, an official of the PS felt, for the first time, allowed to come publicly support the Kurdish left (it was Julien Dray, but our microphone is inadvertently failed to this point).

That libertarian speaker was not deprived of the recall, and it was not the only one. It was almost the only one to mention, however, with the writer Patrice Franceschi and co-chair of PYD is the existence of a revolution Rojava likely to constitute a political model and an alternative to current chaos Middle East.

Below, excerpts from each intervention and libertarian speech verbatim.


For almost two months, Kobanà is besieged by fanatics of the Islamic State - Daech.

For almost two months, Kobanà fights for freedom, for democracy, for the rights of women, despite the double game of the Turkish government.

Today Kobanà became the symbol of resistance Rojava, but not only.

If Kobanà falls, it is also a political and social model emerging that will be threatened: the democratic autonomy, built in Rojava since July 19, 2012.

This is why the defense and Kobanà Rojava interested not only the people and the Kurdish diaspora, but all and all supporters of emancipation, feminists, anti-colonialist, anti-statist and anti-capitalist.

While everyone, Ankara, Washington, predicted that the city would fall in a week Kobanà has not fallen. Resistance held and because it held, it forced the coalition Arab-US op to intervene on his behalf, bombing Daech and delivering weapons.

External aid she means that militia and Kurdish militias have become auxiliaries of imperialism?

No, a thousand times no.

But vigilance is required.

For who can believe that using Arab-US op is disinterested? Who can believe that nation-states that imperialism etched in the blood act without interest. If the coalition does not want to win Daech, she does not want either the victory of political and social model that represents the Rojava.

Wherever come help, the left must remain independent Kurdish. It must remain independent, and it is this condition that the model of democratic confederalism may represent an alternative to the Middle East.

The reinforcement of a battalion of Peshmerga Iraq goes in the right direction.

But what is more important is to be able to receive help tens of thousands of young people, revolutionaries, trade unionists, anti-colonialist, libertarians who demonstrated in Turkey and around the world in support KobanÃ, and several of Hundreds are still stranded at the border by the Turkish army.

What is equally important is the PKK is no longer classified as a "terrorist" organization for the international solidarity can be exercised without restraint.

We would like to welcome once again the militia and militia defending Kobanà risking their lives. We hope that this will be the martyred city of Stalingrad Daech the first major defeat that will break his morale will stop its expansion and prelude to his defeat.

And let's say it again: Kobanà carries on his shoulders the possibility of a different future. Another future for the Middle East. But as a Westerner, I would like to say one last thing, and here I am speaking to Westerners in the room: the fight is a culture, and culture without the struggle no revolution is possible.

Long live free KobanÃ, long live free Kurdistan, long live the revolution!
