(en) France, Alternative Libertaire - Remarks AL - "Kobanê and Kurdistan are not only enemy to the Islamic State" (fr) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 03 Oct 2014 21:13:47 +0300

Remarks Alternative libertarian supported by OCL to the Paris demonstration of the Kurdish left Sept. 27, 2014, in solidarity with the Syrian Kurdistan. ---- 2000-3000 people had responded to the call of the Federation of Kurdish Associations France (Feyka), Saturday, September 27, 2014, and marched in support of the city of Kobanê, besieged by the Islamic State (Daech). ---- Any trends in Kurdish were left there, including large contingents of sympathisant.es PKK and PYD (sister organization of the PKK in Syria). And, of course, dozens of flags bearing the image of the imprisoned leader Abdullah Öcalan. ---- If the cult of the leader usually gives the shivers to militant and French activists, several delegations of organizations (PCF, NPA, AL, ... OCL) had ignored and were present in solidarity with the struggle as urgent as legitimate.

At the finish of the event Place du Chatelet, several expressions of solidarity were read.

Below that of Alternative libertarian, supported by OCL.


Today Kobanê, Western Kurdistan, was besieged by the barbaric forces of the Islamic State - Daech.

Today Kobanê fights for freedom, for democracy and for women's rights.

Today Kobanê fights heroically, despite the double game of the Turkish government, despite the procrastination of the coalition led by Washington.

Today Kobanê became the symbol of resistance to the Syrian Rojava, but not only.

If Kobanê falls, it is not just all Rojava to be threatened, it is also a political and social model: the Democratic confederalism and democratic autonomy, built since July 19, 2012.

Therefore, under the flag of the People's Protection Units (YPG) defending Kobanê we find side by side militia and Kurdish militiamen, Arab, Turkish, they are Muslims, Yazidis, Christians or atheists. Everyone fought side by side against the fanatics.

This is why the defense and Kobanê Syrian Rojava interested not only the people and the Kurdish diaspora, but all and all supporters of emancipation, feminists, anti-colonial and anti-capitalist.

Kobanê must rely on the thousands of young people, revolutionary unionists, anti-colonialist, libertarians who have come from all over Turkey to defend the city, and who are now stranded at the border by the Turkish army.

For Kobanê and Kurdistan are not only enemy to the Islamic state.

They have other enemies, more devious, who would like Daech do the "dirty work" for them: Bashar Assad and Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

As for the United States, after long hesitation, they bombed forces besieging Daech Kobanê. However, be aware that if they do not wish to win Daech, they do not want either the victory of political and social model that represents the Rojava.

Today we talk of a possible ground invasion against Daech area Kobanê. Yet it would be a disaster if tomorrow the name of the fight against jihadism, the Turkish army occupied militarily Rojava. That would be the end of popular autonomy, dismantling of vigilantism, prison for revolutionaries.

The Kurdish people need guns to defend Kobanê and Rojava. He did not need to undergo the occupation of Turkish and American military.

Vive Kobanê free, live free Kurdistan, long live the revolution.
