The French libertarian movement has shipped 14,000 euros in the anarchist movement in Turkey, which helped relieve réfugié.es, the militia and militia during the Battle of Ayn al-Arab. The remainder should help fund self-management projects in the region, alas suspended because of the war in Turkish Kurdistan and the coup failed in July 2016. ---- From October 2014 to July 2015, the French anarchist movement has collected almost 14,000 euros, which were shipped to the Revolutionary Anarchist Action (DAF) in Turkey. ---- Donors and donor are mainly from France, Belgium, Switzerland and Quebec. ---- Most of the funds were used by DAF in the Battle of Ayn al-Arab, which was completed in June 2015 by the rout of Daech; the rest was set aside to develop libertarian projects in Kurdistan.

During the Battle of Ayn al-Arab (September 2014-June 2015):
direct material aid

The siege has driven the mass population. Nearly 250 000 people are thus refugees on Turkish territory, where they have mainly benefited from humanitarian assistance Kurdish municipalities, and the volunteers - feminists, unionists, anarchists, revolutionaries ... - who had flocked from all over Turkey .

DAF team was present from the beginning of the battle, in the Kurdish villages along the Turkish-Syrian border. There, the organization participated in the vigilance committees that gave the mission both to deter abuses of the Turkish army to block the road to volunteers trying to reach Daech, and help réfugié.es and militia and wounded militiamen.

On site, the needs were assessed and communicated to another DAF team in Diyarbakir. She bought the food and medical supplies which were then conveyed to the border villages. This was made possible in part thanks to the financial support of the French libertarian movement. The anarchist movement has, through practice, earned recognition and indisputable legitimacy in the region.

End of 2014, DAF has opened a local in Diyarbakir, which still serves to coordinate anarchist action in the Kurdistan north and west. The organization is gaining audience. His newspaper Meydan, today sells 200 300 copies in the Bakur (Turkish Kurdistan), and a Turkish-Kurdish bilingual edition is under consideration.

After the battle of Ayn al-Arab (since summer 2015):
libertarians and reconstruction projects

Since the defeat of Daech, it is time to rebuild the city. The field is open to the most various projects and, in July 2015, DAF has decided to get involved. His ambition was to support self-management projects, while allowing anarchism from being an autonomous player in the solidarity movement.

DAF The project was planned in two stages:

Opening an anarchist coordination center in Suruç, including a media center, to relay to the anarchist action Kobanî and disseminating libertarian ideas in this region of Kurdistan;
participation in self-management projects in the framework of the reconstruction of the city, together with the autonomous administration of the Canton of Ayn al-Arab.
DAF informed the solidarity collective of anarchists Rojava this project in a message of 8 July 2015. The events decided otherwise. July 20, 2015, in Suruç, with the probable complicity of Turkish military Daech committing an attack against a Turkish revolutionary socialist group (the SGDF) came to participate in the reconstruction of Ayn al-Arab. Result: 33 dead and 100 blessé.es. In the days that followed, bloody clashes have increased in Kurdistan between the Turkish army and the PKK. Since the war situation has not stopped. She was accompanied by repression increasingly fierce, the extreme left and the independent media are the most targeted.

Under these conditions, DAF had to suspend the projects provided for Suruç and Kobanî. They will resume once the political situation allows.

KURDISTAN ANARCHIST AND FINANCIAL SUPPORT: WHAT'S UP?

French anarchist financial solidarity was not in vain. the money enabled the anarchist movement in Turkey to relieve refugees, militiamen and militiawomen during the battle of Kobanê. The remainder should help to finance self-management projects in the region, alas suspended because of the war in Bakur (Turkish Kurdistan).

From October 2014 to July 2015, the French anarchist movement has collected almost 14.000 euros, which were shipped to the Revolutionary Anarchist Action (DAF) in Turkey.

Donors are mainly from France, Belgium, Switzerland and Quebec.

Major part of the funds were used by DAF during the Battle of Kobanê, which was completed in June 2015 by the rout of Daech; the remainder has been provided to develop libertarian projects in Kurdistan.

During the battle of kobanê (september 2014-june 2015):

The siege has scared the population. Nearly 250.000 people took refuge on Turkish territory, where they received humanitarian assistance mainly from Kurdish municipalities, and from the volunteers - feminists, unionists, anarchists, revolutionaries ... - who had come from all over Turkey.

A DAF team was present from the beginning of the battle, in the Kurdish villages along the Turkish-Syrian border. There, the organization participated in the vigilance committees which tried both to dissuade abuses of the Turkish army, to block the volunteers trying to reach Daech, and to help refugees and wounded militiamen and militiawomen.

On the spot, the needs were assessed and communicated to another DAF team in Diyarbakir, Bakur (Turkish Kurdistan). It bought the food and medical supplies which were then conveyed to the border villages. This was in part possible thanks to the financial support of the French libertarian movement. The anarchist movement has, through practice, earned recognition and indisputable legitimacy in the region.

Late 2014, DAF opened a local in Diyarbakir which, nowadays, continues to coordinate anarchist activity in northern and western Kurdistan. The organization is becoming known locally. His diary, Meydan, now sells 200 to 300 copies in Bakur, and a Turkish-Kurdish bilingual edition is planned.

After the battle of kobanê (since summer 2015):
libertarian projects and reconstruction

Since the defeat of Daech, it is time to rebuild the city. The field is open to the most various projects and, in July 2015, DAF has decided to get involved. Its ambition was to support self-management projects while ensuring the anarchists to gain autonomy in the solidarity movement.

The DAF project was planned in two stages:

Opening an anarchist coordination center in Suruç, including a media center, to relay the anarchist action in Kobanê, and to disseminate libertarian ideas in this region of Kurdistan;
participating in self-management projects inside the reconstruction of the city, with the agreement of the autonomous administration of the Kobanê Canton.
DAF explained this project to the french collective "Anarchistes solidaires du Rojava" in a message dated July 8th 2015. The events decided otherwise. July 20th 2015, in Suruç, with the probable complicity of Turkish officers, Daech committed an attack against a Turkish revolutionary socialist group (SGDF), come to participate in the reconstruction of Kobanê. It caused 33 dead and 100 wounded people. The following days, bloody clashes increased in Kurdistan between Turkish army and PKK. Since, the war situation has not stopped. It was accompanied by increasing repression: extreme left and independent medias are the most targeted.

In this context, DAF had to suspend its projects provided for Suruç and Kobanî. They will resume once the political situation allows. For now, there ara also needs of reconstruction in the Bakur, where several cities were ravaged by the Turkish army.
