(en) Britain, Anarchist Federatio: Jin, jian, azadi! Women, life, freedom! + Speech for the Anarchist Federation: -- We bring a report from the Sunday demonstration to support Afrin.

Date Thu, 8 Feb 2018 07:39:56 +0200


On Sunday, 28 January, organized the Initiative of No Racism!, Socialist Solidarity and the Young Green Assembly called Afrin Not Self: Demonstration Against Turkish Aggression Against Rojava. At Palacky Square in Prague, almost 150 people met in the windy Sunday afternoon. Participants, almost half of whom were Kurds living in the Czech Republic, created a varied crowd decorated with YPG and YPJ flags, depictions of the leader of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) Abdullah Öcalan, as well as banners expressing support for African residents or Solidarity with Rojava - Against all fascist aggresion (Solidarity with Rojava - against any fascist aggression). ---- A series of speeches came after the demonstration began. The first representatives of the Kurds were present. He emphasized that let Erdogan justify the attack on Afrin, its main target being the Kurds in the long run. He stressed that, although the PKK is considered a terrorist organization, the Kurds do not fulfill their definition of terrorism. Their only goal is to gain the right to their own existence and to gain freedom. Murad emerged as Socialist Solidarity. In his English speech, translated into Czech, he stated that the people in Afrin are not and will not be alone. He stressed that we should put pressure on the Czech government not only to stop the supply of weapons. German tanks, which are largely used by Turkish units, are not the only material manifestations of the attitude of the European Union or the US to the Turkish offensive.

The Young Green member, in her speech, calculated violations of the Erdogan regime, suppressing basic human rights. She reminded, for example, that there are a large number of transgender people in Turkey, and they, like the entire LGBT movement, face major repression. Women and women are the same, and the government also focuses on journalists.

He could not miss the speech of another organizing organization - INR. Their representative, among other things, called for actions to promote Afrina, to write letters to the relevant authorities, or to appeals to the Czech political party. The INR, according to the INR, should seek to avoid extra weapons in Turkey, should finally start helping, as promised in the context of alibitic excuses, why not accept any refugees. There was also a call for the relevant politicians to resolve the situation of Markéta Všelichová and Miroslav Farkaš, who have been rotting for a year in Turkish prisons for their support of the Kurdish emancipation efforts in Rojava.

The conclusion was the present Kurds. At first, one of them expressed their deep gratitude to all those present for their solidarity and stressed that the warriors and fighters in Afrin were also fighting for us. Speech in Kurdish had Mehmed, who has long been engaged in the struggle for the rights of the Kurds. The last words, the shortest but most succinct, said a small Kurdish girl against the killing of children in Afrin: "Children deserve life!" Before crying, she managed to say only a few sentences, but you had more strength than all previous speeches.

The event was supposed to end at the moment. After a joint photo of participants with banners and flags, the organizers warned that they would not be satisfied with a mere gathering, so people started to make a short march.

The procession headed for a moment in the direction of Jungmannovo Square. On the way through Karlovo námestí and Spálená we were really heard. The majority of the Kurds, who chanted passwords like Bijî berxwedana ypg! (Glory of Resistance YPG!) Or Jin, jian, azadi! (Women, life, freedom!). In addition to passwords, there were a few words about why we are marching. A little vicious I imagined how a xenophobic looking at a parade, mostly made up of skulling men of darker skin, dressed in colorful flags and accompanied by reproduced oriental music, takes his legs on his shoulders and runs to warn patriotic souls that the jihad has already arrived in Prague!

The march ended at Jungmann Square, where several Kurdish songs and short speeches were heard before the event was officially over.

We thank the organizers for organizing this important event. We have come to express our solidarity to the Kurds, and the Kurds have not missed it! Afrin is not alone!

Speech for the Anarchist Federation:

We strongly condemn Turkey's offensive of Afina as anarchists and anarchists, whatever the goal is.
Is the attack the result of long-term hatred of the state towards the Kurds as a nationality? We condemn nationalism!
Or is the operation driven by an effort to turn with Rojava's emancipation, which many anarchists see as a new hope for revolutionary events? We condemn the state violence against any attempt to live freely!
Does the Turkish state want to expand its territory, take up border areas and subject the local population to the proto-fascist Erdogan regime? We condemn imperialism!
Does Turkey try to take another piece of land in the war on energy? We condemn the capitalist efforts to monetize everything you look at!
Turkey convinces its citizens that the attack is leading to their security. To get rid of so-called terrorists from the PKK. Even in our case, we saw in the Fénix case how easy it is to abuse the "terrorism" sticker. Turkey's fake effort to maintain state security is used to divert attention from opposition to the opposition. Against this, neither anarchists nor other left-wing groups have resigned. There are no reports about some anarchist groups from Istanbul or Ankara. Some comrades and comrades are missing, they are probably imprisoned without trial.
Turkey is justifying the fight against terrorism, but in reality it just removes all the people who are against it. All the people they hate. He wants to get rid of those who threw him a few months ago to help clear the Daesh world.
Friends fighting in YPG and YPJ have a better-armed and hateful enemy against each other. However, volunteers fighting for Coban came to their aid, and their sympathizers and sympathizers around the world express their support. But their most powerful weapon is a legitimate desire for freedom.
As our friends from the Turkish anarchist group DAF told us: No state can defeat people fighting for freedom!
The people of Afrin will win!
