(en) Greece, Liberta Salonica: Action of solidarity with the people of Kurdistan (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 20 Jan 2023 09:58:27 +0200

* The action took place within the framework of the participation of the Freedom Initiative of Thessaloniki in the riseup4rojava network ---- DAY-X IS NOW! We call for immediate action! Solidarity in Rojava! ---- NO TO THE WAR IN NORTHERN SYRIA - STOP THIS NEW TURKISH MILITARY INVASION ---- To all the friends of Rojava, to the press and the public: During the night, between 19 and 20 November, the Turkish fascist state launched a new operation against the liberated territories of Rojava, northeastern Syria and southern Kurdistan. A massive air operation bombed the cities and regions of Kobani, Derik, Shahba, Manbij, Zirgan/Dirbesiye and Til Temir. In Southern Kurdistan, Turkish warplanes also bombed the areas of Gare and Qandil in the Media Defense Zones. The attacks are currently continuing and the leader of the fascist Turkish regime, Erdogan, is threatening the region with destruction, disappearance and bloodshed so that he can stay in power and win next year's upcoming elections in Turkey. Since the beginning of this year, Rojava has faced continuous attacks, while at the same time in the mountains of South Kurdistan, the Turkish army is using chemical gases daily against the resisting insurgents and insurgents. We See Your Crimes (#WeSeeYourCrimes)! We don't stay silent! The latest attacks by the Turkish state reveal another escalation on the ground and should be seen as preparation for a new invasion. That's why we say: "Day X is now!". We therefore invite you to act on this appeal.

It's already been over a year since we renewed our Day campaign strategy calling on everyone to prepare for this day. It has always been clear to us that the X-Day concept only works for certain scenarios. But what if the enemies of our struggle, if the Turkish state does not act according to these scenarios? For more than three years now, Rojava has been attacked on a daily basis. Drones and airstrikes, artillery bombardments, local and regional attacks by the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army (SNA, formerly known as FSA), water cuts, destruction of infrastructure, embargoes, policy of isolation, etc. 2022 was a year that included for Rojava all the above challenges and attacks. International hegemonic powers such as the US and Russia have given Turkey the green light to do whatever it wants. According to the current reality in Rojava, we have now come to the conclusion that continuing to wait for X-Day will limit us more and more to passivity and make us unable to react as needed. We must be very clear about this. Rojava is at war! Rojava is under attack! Therefore, we must realize that Day X is now, Day X is every day!

We also notice that at the same time that Rojava and Southern Kurdistan are receiving massive bombings, in Eastern Kurdistan (Rozilat) and Iran the repression of people struggling in the streets has reached a new level. Iran is also bombing this Kurdistan, just like Turkey. This situation once again shows the reality of the Kurdish people and what they face once they demand a life of self-determination. Everyone must understand that those who gave life to the slogan "Jin, Jiyan, Azadi" (Woman, Life, Freedom) are the women of Rojava, they are the rebels in the mountains of Kurdistan, they are the people of Kurdistan! The people's struggle in the streets of Rojava and Iran, the resistance of the guerrilla and the struggle of the people of Rojava are a single whole. This struggle cannot be seen in fragments, but only as a broken, organic whole. For this reason, we call on everyone to take immediate action, mobilize and take to the streets! Wherever you are in this world: Show your support to the people of Rojava!

-> Put your X-Day action plan into action!

-> Hold blockades, protests, sit-ins! Organize rallies and demonstrations! Get creative!

#WeSeeYourCrimes #RiseUp4Rojava #SmashTurkishFascismCampaign #RiseUp4Rojava

Today's action is dedicated to the Kurdish comrades Fidan Dogan, Sakine Chansiz and Leila Soilemez, who were murdered by agents of Turkish fascism 10 years ago today, on January 9, 2013, in Paris.
