(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL A message anarchists locally: "The revolution will win in Kobanê!" (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 10 Oct 2014 10:16:46 +0300

Comrades of the Revolutionary Anarchist Action (DAF) came to the aid of the city of Kobanê , besieged by the Islamic State (Daech). One party entered the town. Others stayed in a village on Turkish territory, Boyde. They and they send us this message. ---- In Boyde, Oct. 8, 2014. 24th day of the siege of Kobanê by the Islamic State (Daech). While in all border towns, activists and advocates are rampart of their bodies to deter attacks, the entire population, throughout the region, rose up to prevent the fall of Kobanê. ---- For nearly three weeks, we act as human shields in the village of Boyde, west of Kobanê. The last two days, explosions and the clash of arms has intensified in the suburbs and the city center. At the same time, Turkish troops have increased their pressure. All those who approached the border, one side or the other, have been targeted by tear gas. The village where we are has been attacked like this Tuesday. Several people were also injured by live ammunition.

Human chain at the village of Boyde
These attacks on border villages mean that men Daech are themselves allowed to cross the border. The support of the Turkish Republic to Daech obviously here. Of course, it's not one thing that is obvious.

We learned that one of the commanders leading the attack on Daech Kobanê was shot by YPG-YPJ [ 1 ] However, the fighting has not diminished in intensity; they have hardly stopped the day.

We now know that the explosions we hear are the result of YPG-YPJ. The militia and militia deserted streets of downtown to take the jihadists ambushed and, apparently, this tactic worked.

In meetings in the village, some rumors sensation. One of them is the fear inspired by the fighting of YPJ jihadists. Indeed, Daech embodies the state terror, the massacre ... but also patriarchy. And jihadists afraid they can not be regarded as "martyrs" if they are killed by a woman. Hence their fear of facing the YPJ. I must say that when they encounter them, the combatants are ruthless. This struggle YPJ is that of freedom against patriarchy.

Activist DAF Kobanê
These last two days, the uprising in Kurdistan and in the cities of Anatolia gives a feeling of invincibility of organized people. This uprising builds confidence in Kobanê in border villages and throughout the Rojava [ 2 ] Every time a brother or a sister falls, our pain is sharp, but even stronger our anger and determination. Funeral ceremonies begin kneeling mutate rapidly wacky dances, pounding our feet shakes the earth and transform our pain into a real rage.

That's all we need here. For freedom and the revolution we hope, despite everything.

Long live the popular resistance Kobanê!
Vive la revolution in Rojava!
live the revolutionary anarchist Action!

(Alternative libertarian translation)
