(en) Greece, anarchist Federation - Turkish state (or, another state death industry) (gr) [machine translation]
Tue, 9 Feb 2016 08:23:12 +0200
From the torture and murder of thousands of opponents in Junta of Evren and continual
war against the Kurdish people by the demonstrators and militants murders (Berkin Elvan in
Geza, Tahir Elche in Diyarbakir) and bombings in Sourouts, Ankara and Istanbul, State
violence, imposition and brutality, never left the neighboring country. - Military coup,
nationalist, mafias, strategy of tension and ruthless political staff over time were in
the physical space of the Turkish state and the Turkish bourgeoisie. ---- The rise of the
AKP in power in recent years, marked the end of the "secular" ideological orientation of
the Turkish state (the army as a regulator of political life, focus on Turkish nationality
and language as homogenization element and oppression of the multi-ethnic composition,
marginalization of organized religion and Islamist political forces, despite the
occasional instrumental use of the latter to suppress radical segments of Turkish society).
The turn to religion as the central element of the Turkish state and the associated
reduction of the political influence of the army, however, did not disturb the continuity
of state enforcement policy, in no way reduced the intensity against the Kurdish movement
and antisystemic political forces. Today we observe that despite different starting points
and targets of Kemalist state and AKP (Erdogan's party), the defense of Turkish national
interests have eliminated these differences.
Instead, the new alliance strategy of the Turkish state (Saudi Arabia, ISIS) intensified
its crackdown against the organized parts of the Kurdish people: it is not only the
opposition of the PKK in the Kurdish assimilation strategy based on common (Sunni Islam)
religion. The real threat to the Turkish state is the libertarian political turn of PKK,
as the PYD to track the Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava). The current project of the Kurdish
movement in Turkey and Syria are now much more than a national liberation movement left type.
The adoption of the federal organization and self-management of society, effective
women-men equality and practical challenge traditional patriarchal logic of a winning
female army (YPJ) and, above all, the proposal of a social organization model, not only
Kurds but all peoples of the region, irrespective of religion and language, is a mortal
danger not only for the Turkish state, but every ruler in the Middle East.
Given the multi-ethnic composition of Turkey, the doctrine of internal enemy over time
constitute the cornerstone of national cohesion, while the repressive policy of the
Turkish state against the Kurdish militants, exercised independently of the government.
The AKP then, is but another product of the Turkish militarized state apparatus; another
pawn in the service of Turkish nationalism.
With this new ideological enclosure and sometimes policies backs EU and US, Erdogan
continues its strategy of tension (who re-established the power in the elections of
November 1), unleashing the most severe attack in recent years in Kurdish towns and
districts of eastern Turkey. Since last December, the Kurdish cities of Diyarbakir, Syzran
Silvan, Sirnak and Silopi, pounded by the Turkish armed forces on the pretext of the war
The military blockade has left many areas without electricity, food and water, while
curfew prevents access to hospitals and funerals, causing the wounded to die of bleeding
and the dead lie for days in the streets or to rot within in homes, alongside their
relatives. Entire neighborhoods have been razed by Turkish tanks, while the dead have
exceeded 200, the first victim of the civilian population.
Yet, despite the magnitude of the repression, the inhabitants of these regions dig
trenches and build barricades, continuing to do what they have learned from children: to
resist by all means against the Turkish state totalitarianism. The Kurdish people are
paying the price for the ongoing struggle for freedom and independence, the struggle of
the revolutionary Rojava in Syria, the resistance of the PKK militants in Turkish
Kurdistan and the victorious struggle against the fundamentalists-obscurantists of ISIS:
the links of the latter with the Turkish state obviously not limited to possible
transactions, such as the great victory at Kompania was not only defeat the ISIS, but also
for its allies.
Critical political corollary to the companies and the general policy of the Turkish
state, is the EU summit in Turkey last November. The resumption of negotiations on
Turkey's accession to the EU at a time of sharpening confrontation with Russia and renewal
of conflict with the PKK and other Turkish political organizations, is nothing but an
attempt landscaping of Turkish foreign and domestic policy.
In the context of the conflict large and small imperialisms in the region, European
leaders reward on East ally for the 'vigor' demonstrating against Putin -Mr opponent of EU
interests in Oukrania- and further legitimize the Turkish strategy Syrian issue. Ie, the
North American and European imperialism, the reward from the East ally, against the Russian.
The attack on the organized Kurdish movement and the simple Kurdish people can not leave
Our class and internationalist solidarity with Kurdish fighters in Turkey and Syria, is
a duty for all those who understand that the struggle for social justice and liberation
knows no borders and nationalities.
We stand with all our soul beside resisting Kurds of eastern Turkey, the Kurdish women and
Kurdish armed rebels, the Turkish women and Turkish militants, who are fighting selflessly
toward religious fundamentalism-obscurantism and state totalitarianism for their autonomy,
revolution and social justice.
