(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - File Kurdistan "Ankara feared a revolutionary contagion" (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 29 Nov 2014 11:19:31 +0200

The other articles of the file: ---- Rojava: New Chiapas? ---- What has really changed the PKK ---- Infographic: Kurdish galaxy ---- Yes, the people can change things (experience Rojava) ---- "Barcelona, Warsaw, Stalingrad, Kobanê" (support libertarian in France) ---- Funds for the revolution! ---- Join the funding campaign ---- When the seat Kobanê by the troops of the Islamic State (Daech) began in mid-September, thousands of young people flocked from all over Turkey to strengthen the defense of the city, provided by YPG and YPJ. Activists and militants of the group Devrimci Anarsist Faaliyet (Revolutionary Anarchist Action, DAF) were included. ---- DAF bases its strategy on the action within social movements, endeavoring to change things "here and now" in an anti-capitalist perspective, anti-statist, and the fight against all forms of oppression: patriarchy, religion , heterosexism, productivism. Members of DAF refuse military service in the Turkish army and support the struggles of national minorities flouted by the Turkish Jacobinism - Alevis, Armenians, Kurds ...

On September 25, you were able to join Kobanê. Why?

DAF: In Turkey, speaks of the "Kurdish problem". In reality, the struggle of the Kurds for their freedom shows that the problem is rather the state. At the state and capitalism, the Kurdish movement opposed the organized power of the people.

The revolution of July 2012 in the Rojava (Syrian Kurdistan) has, in fact, abolished the boundaries between people of Syria and those in Turkey. Ankara, fearing a revolutionary contagion, had also tried to build a wall. As the war in Syria opposes statist and capitalist different factions, the Kurds have created a front for the real freedom of the people, transcending nationality issues. As revolutionary anarchists, it was impossible not to involve us.

What form this support take?

DAF: To support Kobanê, "stress communities" were organized along the 25 km border, in particular Suruç. There are people from the neighborhood or from all corners of Anatolia and Mesopotamia. These "communities of resistance" are vital to help réfugié.es and deter abuses by the Turkish army.

DAF comrades crossed the border - we can not tell you how - and reached Kobanê. This is very important for the people of the city to feel revolutionary solidarity against this bloody mob calling itself Daech. YPG is the front line, and therefore we try to help them as best as possible.

What is your opinion on the Kurdish Left? She is moving towards self-management ideas?

DAF: In the popular struggles for freedom, anarchism has always been a catalyst. Long before the distribution of state socialism, long before the doctrine of the "right of peoples to self-determination", the people fought for their freedom, but not necessarily a "nation-state". What happens in the Rojava, as in Chiapas, to do otherwise is not a classic "national liberation struggle".

Will he traces of anarchism in the Kurdish Left today? The question needs to be asked. When you see his speech on building a life free State, the social ecology, and proximity to the "democratic confederalism" with direct democracy, one wonders if there is not this internalization a certain anarchism.
