(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire UCL - International, The Rojava must live, we must stop the invasion by the Turkish army (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 15 Oct 2019 09:55:48 +0300

With the green light of the United States, the Turkish army and its Islamist auxiliaries began the attack. In early 2018, with a similar green light from Russia, the same invaded Afrin township, resulting in destruction, massacres and widespread ethnic cleansing. Today we can dread a repetition of this scenario. The balance between rival imperialisms, which had benefited the Kurdish left for five years, is now broken. This betrayal was expected. The Kurdish left is now alone against Turkish tanks and aviation. Total support for popular resistance in northern Syria ! ---- On the evening of October 6, Trump abruptly announced the immediate withdrawal of US troops from northern Syria, which until now had played a deterrent role against a Turkish invasion. In the same vein, the White House itself announced that Ankara would be able to launch its plan to occupy Rojava.

On October 8 in the morning, backpedaling: only fifty soldiers would be redeployed away from the border, and Trump, in a bewildering tweet, promised in his "great and incomparable wisdom" that if the Turkish operation "exceeds the limits" (which ?), it will "completely destroy and destroy Turkey's economy".

The very words of the US communication show how much credit should be given to it, beyond the cacophony that reigns in Washington between the White House, the Congress, the Pentagon and the CIA ...

Erdogan and Trump are scheduled to meet at the White House on November 13th.

US soldiers will no longer obstruct the Turkish army
The "redeployment" of US troops to the south means that they will no longer obstruct a Turkish incursion beyond the Syrian border.

But Ankara's claim is to be able to occupy a strip of territory 30 kilometers deep all along its border, under a "buffer zone", saying for reasons of "security". The fact is that most of the main cities of Rojava are in this buffer zone: Qamislô (capital of the Northern and Eastern Autonomous Administration of Syria), Kobanê, Tal-Abyad, Derîk ...

Ankara is openly planning to install some of the 3 million Syrian refugees who live on its soil, under the old Ottoman policy of deporting people according to the political interests of the moment. This undertaking would not necessarily displease Bachar el Assad. It could even be compatible with the policy of the "green line" led by the Syrian dictatorship in the 1970s. It consisted in making the Kurds in Rojava minority, expropriating their land for the benefit of Arab families implanted on purpose. in a colonialist logic that is well known in the West.

After Afrîn, a new ethnic cleansing ?
Can we imagine that tomorrow, Kobanê, where the Kurdish left put a stop to the jihadist expansion, is occupied by the Turkish army, which sponsored Daesh for years ? Daesh will certainly benefit from this invasion to relocate and relaunch its abuses.

In March 2018, the Turkish army and its Islamist ASL detainees seized the Kurdish canton of Afrin.

The invasion of Afrin Canton in early 2018 left thousands dead and led to ethnic cleansing, with 250,000 Kurds displaced from their homes and replaced by the mercenary families of the Free Syrian Army ( ASL). Today one is entitled to fear, in worse, the repetition of an invasion of this kind.

On the spot, the whole people is preparing for a total war, taking on the strategic places and storing food. Such a battle will undoubtedly determine the continuation or annihilation of the revolutionary experience under way in Rojava. Yesterday, all schools and institutions were closed to allow everyone to demonstrate against the threat.

Solidarity is paramount, it must continue to be heard to defend freedom and revolution in Kurdistan. Long live the struggle of the peoples of northern Syria for their autonomy, against the imperialist calculations of all tyrants !
