(en) Turkey, Media, anarchists along other leftists managed to cross to the Syrian- Kurdish Kobane to help the resistance to ISIS.

Date Sat, 27 Sep 2014 11:59:12 +0300


anarchists along other leftists, feminists, and 'Gezi park types' have managed to cross over into Syria and the northern town of Kobane which is currently threatened by ISIS.
Vice reported yesterday that ISIS is within 5 miles of the city and are attacking with US military equipment including tanks that outmatches the weapons available to the YPG - Kurdish People's Protection Units. Vice also reported that "Hundreds of Turkish Kurds are arriving too, sneaking or bribing their way across the border to fight alongside the YPG"
The photo shows a banner of the anarchist group DAF (Devrimci AnarÅist Faaliyet, or Revolutionary Anarchist Action) apparently just after the border has been crossed. The statement we were sent says "People are suffering from hunger and thirst, getting ill, getting injured; migrating and dying. They are still fighting in that struggle for existence. People are fighting not for the schemes and strategies around meeting tables, not for income, but for their freedom"

We hope to bring more details and further photos as they become available.

Thousands of young people, socialists, trade unionists, revolutionary, feminist, libertarian poured in from all over Turkey to KobanÃ. They go there to support and defend the city's refugees.

The Turkish army tries to disperse them, as it is accused of being much more permissive with the jihadists who are trying, too, to cross the border to join Daesh (ISIS).

Despite the dams of the Turkish army, hundreds of activists and militants have managed to cross the border. Among them, the comrades of the Revolutionary Anarchist Action Group, who made the trip from Istanbul to join the defense of KobanÃ, and sent these photos."
