(en) cnt.es: ROJAVA | To all democratic forces: Defend the Democratic Federation of Northeast Syria! (ca, it) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 3 Jan 2019 06:23:47 +0200

Less than a year after the start of the criminal war against the canton of Afrin, the people of northeastern Syria are once again facing an aggression by the fascist state of Turkey and its Islamist allies. The threats of the Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan are not empty words, they are not just electoral campaign propaganda and they are not mere provocations. With the assaults on the Maxmur refugee camp and several villages in Shengal on December 13, he has made it clear again. In fact, they are the latest expression of the expansionist neo-Ottoman aspirations of the AKP-MHP regime and the open announcement of a murderous war of extermination against the revolution in northeastern Syria and throughout the Middle East. ---- From the beginning of the revolution, the Turkish state, the Syrian regime and the imperialist powers led by the USA. UU and Russia, they have done everything in their power to eliminate this revolution. But neither the Islamist assassins, under the banner of Al-Nusra, the so-called FSA or the black flag of the Islamic State, nor the isolation, nor the open war of aggression, could break the brave resistance of the population. In the last 6 years of this struggle, the peoples of northeastern Syria, with great sacrifices and efforts, demonstrated their dedication to a life in freedom in the face of world public opinion. The liberation of Raqqa by the Democratic Forces of Syria, and with it the day to day of the complete destruction of the caliphate, marks the beginning of a new strategic phase in Syria and throughout the region.

Despite the contradictions that may exist between the regional and international hegemonic powers, all agree on one point: the revolution in the northeast of Syria, the democratic administrative structure of its council, the establishment of an ecological-communal public sector and the motor The main reason for the revolution, which is the liberation of women from a patriarchal system of government that has existed for millennia, constitutes the greatest threat to their hegemonic interests and that is why it must be annihilated. In recent years, the revolution in Rojava and northeastern Syria has become a source of hope for all those who are looking for a life beyond the state, capital and patriarchy. It is a beacon that can show the oppressed and exploited of this earth the way out of the darkness of capitalist modernity, and has shown once and for all that the "end of history", proclaimed by those in power, is not more than a simple lie. It is the living example that even today, in the 21st century, another world is possible.

The war against Afrin, the international support for the massacres against the civilian population, the NATO bombs that fell on our friends, the German Leopard tanks, at whose passage our hope was supposed to be crushed, were the first clear expression of the new imperialist front against the revolution in the Middle East, and a harbinger of what awaits us. All of us here have learned something from Afrin: to trust nothing but our own strength. We do not give any credibility to the declarations of the international forces and we will not appeal to anyone either. We have known both friends and enemies extensively, and we know that our only allies in this fight are international democracy,

We call for a new phase of resistance, action and collaborative struggle. We call all those who were in the streets for the defense of Afrin last year, who organized themselves in the numerous solidarity committees, which made Afrin World Day an expression of global solidarity and that they feared with us on every street in Kobanê. Also to all those in Europe and throughout the world who explicitly declared their anger and hatred towards the enemies of humanity, the instigators of the war and the supporters of Turkish fascism. Our message was and is unequivocal: if the war against the revolution is international, then our resistance is also. Let's demonstrate together that this revolution is everyone's struggle,

That the attacks take place in this phase is not coincidence. Nowadays, the international capitalist system acts from a position of weakness. The structural crisis of today's civilization can no longer be covered up and more and more people are beginning to wake up and fight against this oppressive system. We see it in the streets of France, in the protest against the G20 summit in Buenos Aires (Argentina), in the women's strike, in the # NiUnaMenosand in the protests in the Hambach forest. The powers of the old order try to stay alive with the state of emergency, state terrorism and open fascism, but their days are numbered if we organize ourselves and face attacks against our lives together. Let us take advantage of the strength that we draw from the revolution and intensify our struggle. If we recognize our joint power, we can launch this system into the dung heap of history once and for all. Against the offensive of capitalist modernity it is vital to organize the defense and revolt of democratic modernity everywhere.

For us, as part of the Internationalist Commune of # Rojava, today a new phase also begins. We meet in Rojava to support the civil structures of this revolution, to learn, understand and contribute. In the same way as the population of Rojava, this war has been imposed on us. If the enemy does not leave us with another option, then we will not remain on the sidelines, but will participate with all our strength and all our skills in the preparation of resistance and the defense of society and the revolution. We will do everything necessary to contribute to this resistance. We will remain next to the population against the fascist attack. We may have come here from different places with different ideas and jobs, but this land has also become our home in recent years. So that,

Stay close to the revolution, raise your voice, take to the streets, join existing solidarity committees and resistance groups and find additional ones. Initiate civil disobedience actions to raise awareness of the situation in Rojava and send a clear example of solidarity.

Side by side against fascism!
Long live international solidarity!
The revolution will prevail, fascism will be crushed!
