(en) Turkey, "Women's Initiative Against War" in Ataturk Airport

Date Fri, 10 Oct 2014 18:54:03 +0300


"Women's Initiative Against War" which includes comrades from Anarchist Women have staged a protest this morning in Ataturk Airport, Ästanbul. They went there to protest the co-operation of the Turkish state with ISIS in the attacks on the Kurdish enclaves in Syria, including Kobane. ---- The women protested wearing white shirts with "Kobane is Life, ISIS is Dead" written on them. Police brutally took the women into custody. ---- What does the protest refer to? As well as the now very well documented attacks by Turkish state forces on people gathered at the border to help the defence of Kobane and the silence of the Turkish guns as ISIS fighters visibly move in front of them there are many accounts of ISIS being allowed to cross the Turkish border.

The quote below for instance is from an ISIS fighter captured and later returned to his family by the YPG, its well worth reading the full interview but the relevant section is below

" I joined a new battalion; we went back to Turkey and crossed the Turkish border to enter Serekaniye.

Q: And what about the Ceylanpinar Turkish border post that is heavily controlled by Turkish soldiers?

They just turned a blind eye.

Q: How?

We were initially told by the IS field commander to fear nothing because there was cooperation with the Turks at the border. The watchtower light caught us and our commander said everybody should stop but do not look at the light. He talked on the radio, then the watchtower light began to move after 8-10 minutes and that was the signal saying we could safely cross the border."

Turkey is the second biggest army in NATO, these actions are just as much NATO intervention is the US bombing runs at Kobane.

Kobanà is life, ISIS is dead!
