(en) afed.cz: Our hearts beat in Rojava

Date Tue, 29 Jan 2019 07:49:38 +0200

We are joining the action days (27 and 28 January 2019) to support the Revolution in Rojava. We bring an overview of the texts that appeared on this site on this site. ---- The events in North Syrian Rojava, that is, in the territory inhabited mainly by the Kurds, are with interest in the long term. We are sympathetic to their militia against the so-called Islamic State (IS), which is one of the most acute threats in the region, trying to establish a fascist dictatorship in the name of religion (it must be said that the vast majority of Muslims condemn the IS world). Also sympathetic to us is the effort to build local government completely out of the state. Self-government that goes hand in hand with the revolutionary emancipation of local women and respects all religions and ethnicities in the given space.

It is no wonder, therefore, that the Anarchist Federation joined the # RiseUp4Rojava Challenge - We are embracing the Revolution of the International Communist Party . On January 27 and 28, 2019, she declared World Action Days "to send a clear signal of our solidarity with the revolution in northeastern Syria" and our "resistance to Turkish fascism."

On October 12, 2014, we were in the "Solidarity with People of Rojava. Fuck IS. Fuck NATO. Fuck Erdogan "participated in the Prague demonstration in support of the Syrian Kurds. This was preceded by a smaller evening event attended by members and members of INR and AF. It was at a time when the Kurdish militants fought for the city of Kobane against IS units. The following day, we issued a Statement by the International of Anarchist Federations to support the Kurds in defending the Islamic state. In the coming days, we have translated the text of Yigal Levin and Ivan Shmatka on the Equal Community Status of Women in Kurdistan Syria. Additional demonstrationswas held on 1 November 2014 as part of a global action day, and a speech by AF, which warned of the ambiguity of the international intervention to defend Kobane. At the end of 2014, we were still invited to lecture "From Chiapas to Rojava - Demand for Democracy".

In 2015, we took on our website a translation criticizing the paternalistic superiority of some anarchists and leftists on the issue of fighting beyond their culturally-territorial and ideologically strict scope. In addition, we reviewed the sixth issue of Moment magazine , which devoted itself to the revolutionary experiment in Rojava.

In the next year, we reflected this topic in the spring issue of the Anarchist Revue of Existence . Janet Biehl, a former associate of the well-known anarchist theorist Murray Bookchin, and a Spanish anarchist who joined the YPG units with whom he fought against the IS, are speaking here in Rojava in two interviews. We reported on the site that Turkish tanks were speculatively surpassing Syrian borders on 23 August because of the alleged IS attack, and in September we published the call of the International Anarchist Federation to express solidarity with DAF anarchists persecuted by the Turkish state, among other things because of its support for the Rwanda autonomy. A report on the Kurdish-speaking anarchist forum followed. In the Czech Republic that year on Rojava lectured Markéta Všelichová and Miroslav Farkas, activists supporting Kurdish militias in the fight against IS by providing a field hospital. Information on their detention in Turkey was heard on the anti-racist demonstration on November 17 in Prague.

At the end of March 2017, the news spread that a new anarchist partisan group, the International Revolutionary People's Guerrilla Force (IRPGF), was formed in Rojava. In the course of June, we published in four parts ( I. , II , III , IV. ) A split translation of a critical discussion with the IRPGF anarchists about the armed struggle in Rojava. On our website, we published a solid message of IRPGF to the prosecuted Belarusian anarchists and gave honor to the memory of several fallen internationals: Jordan MacTaggart (+2016), Michael Israel (+2016), Anton Leshek (+2016). In the autumn number of Existence ( 3/2017), we brought an earlier conversation about democratic confederalism led by Janet Biehl with the Kurdish ecologist and social activist Ercan Ayboga. In 2017, we also joined the call for solidarity with Markéta Všelichova and Miroslav Farkas prosecuted in Turkey for the support of Kurds fighting the IS.

Last year, after a Turkish Turkish attack on the Kurdish town of Afrin, located in the north of Syria, we interpreted the call from Afarin anarchists and statements by Turkish anarchists to the situation in Afrina. We also took part in a demonstration in support of Afriana, which took place on 28 January in Prague, where there was also an address for AF. On February 26, we joined the protest against the arrest of Kurdish politician Salih Muslim. Another demonstration for the same purpose took place a day later in front of the City Court in Prague. Even here was a black-and-red flag. They did not even protest against the Turkish attack on Afrin, so we could join on March 12 with our speech to demonstrateto support local residents. On that occasion, we devoted ourselves to the March issue of the A3 wall paper, and on March 29 joined the Prague march against the Turkish aggression in Afrin. Towards the end of 2018, we supported the formation of the Revolutionary Defense Committee in Rojava and informed of a direct action to support Rojava at the headquarters of the Turkish Embassy. Several of us also took part in a protest demonstration outside the Foreign Ministry on 19 December.

This year, we reviewed our comics on the site of Kurdish self-government in northern Syria, and we made the call mentioned in the introduction to this review.

Besides more extensive information, translations and interviews on the web, we also try to bring short news and interesting links to our facebook profile and twitter account.

The fate of the self-government in Rojava is not indifferent to us and we want to continue to provide information from this area, as well as solidarity actions to support it and against the authoritarian forces that would prefer to see it buried deep underground.
