"This event is of paramount importance in the history of the revolution today in its infancy and in the support that the international revolutionary movement can bring." ---- Libertarian Alternative reproduces the posts of the blog Kurdistan-Autogestion-Revolution where, after Arthur Aberlin, engaged in the YPG, now expresses Damien Keller, engaged him in the International Liberation Battalion (IFB). ---- Over the weeks, he will testify to the life in the IFB, the debates that are going on and the evolution of the revolutionary process in the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria. ---- International Liberation Battalion, Canton of Cizîrê, January 22, 2018 ---- Since 21 January, Turkey has been invading the canton of Afrin, helped by groups claiming free Syrian army, for some Salafists and / or panturcs.

Thus, the population of this enclave of the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria (FDSN) today undergoes the bombing of Turkish aviation and resists ground attacks with its military forces that are the YPG and the YPJ, as well as the conscripts militia, the HXP.

The international community reacted until now timidly to this attack which threatens the revolution that takes place today in the North of Syria. Russia, previously allied with the FDSN in its fight against the Islamic State begins to betray its alliance with it, the United States and other Western countries react only by press releases.

This betrayal is not a surprise
This betrayal, the comrades here had predicted, having given these allies strategic necessity while they and then they had no choice, surrounded by many enemies. Moreover, nothing is certain about maintaining the neutrality of the Bashar al-Assad regime.

This is further proof that we have nothing to expect from the capitalist and imperialist countries that act in the Middle East only for their economic and political interests. This event is of paramount importance in the history of the revolution today in its infancy and in the support that the international revolutionary movement can bring.

Indeed, we are facing here an attack of armed forces better equipped than ours and perhaps superior in number. To recall, the Turkish army is the 2 th largest in NATO and the 9 th in the world, including more than 500,000 soldiers and 100,000 paramilitary. The imperialist states, to safeguard their interests in the region, may decide to counter the attack more actively, but nothing tells us.

If there is a time when we need revolutionary activists, then it is today.

For our part, we, international revolutionary volunteers, are ready and ready to fight alongside our YPG and YPJ comrades to defend the revolution.

In France or elsewhere, you have the possibility to help us:

sharing information about what is happening in Syria today ;
by taking part in the solidarity demonstrations, announced in France in particular by the Kurdistan women's facebook pages, the Kurdistanews Kurdistan news and the Kurdish Democratic Council's CDKF news ;
by organizing support actions, in particular against the embassies of Turkey ;
by popularizing the experience of the young revolution now in progress ;
joining us to fight the dictatorships that threatens this revolution.
Bijî bexwedana Efrinê !
Bijî têkosîna dijfasîstî u dijemperyalîstî !
Bijî soresa navneteweyî !

Long live Afrin's resistance !
Long live the anti-fascist and anti-imperialist struggle !
Long live the international revolution !

Damien Keller
