We will defend the social revolution in Rojava with all our power. The bloodthirsty imperialist interventions can be suspended only by the coordinated internationalist actions of the oppressed classes

Date:

Since July 2012, a living revolutionary process has been unfolding in Rojava, in the area of Northern and Eastern Syria/West Kurdistan. This revolutionary process unfolds by standing tall against capitalism, imperialism, fascism and patriarchy. The liberating social endeavor of democratic confederalism consists of the peaceful fellowship of various peoples in terms of direct democracy. At the same time, it focuses on social ecology, radical feminism, and questioning the role of the state as a tool for domination. This liberating social endeavor also proves in a tangible manner that the capitalists don't really lack strength and that their authority sooner or later is going to be overthrown by the revolutionary workers and farmers. That is the historical duty of the subjugated classes.

The prosperity and the material fulfillment of the social and class emancipation -- the self-management of the production and of the social life by the oppressed – affects the foundations and the interests of the ruling capitalist class. The social revolution in Rojava is a process that has come to give hopefor the social liberation of all theoppressed classes and at the same time an experience that refutes in practice the claims of the bourgeoisie politicians and capitalist economists – that capitalism is an unwavering and immovable system.

The supposed "only-way"that capitalism presents is being shattered with every step that the people are taking towards the social revolution. What the imperialists around the globe can't digest is that the people of the Middle East are not only fighting against the capitalist barbarism, but they are also taking back their lives in their hands by creating a libertarian alternative way to the capitalist impasse. The imperialists are lusting to get their hands on the rich lands of Middle East. They have been fighting with each other for years, while using puppet governments in order to exploit the natural and energy resources of the area and to further undervalue the Middle Eastern proletariat. They aim to promote their interests by any means, not hesitating to shed the blood of the innocent natives of the area, even financing jihadist groups that they say they fight.

The capitalists have their hands stained with the blood of the people. Whenever their current power play and their particular interests dictate them to do so, they either fight or form alliances with each other. In any case, they have been mercilessly hammering down the struggling people, the oppressed and the exploited, their class opponents. For the last two years the Turkish state has exercised an non-stop operation for the occupation of the liberated Rojava. The attacks of the Turkish state have been continue to this day with the aid, the tolerance and the consent of the international imperialist powers and the Islamic gangs, that act as mercenaries and armed vanguard to the Turkish military interventions in Kurdistan.

On the 15 th of June 2020 the Turkish state openly attacked the liberated regions of Rojava, the self-managed immigrant camp at Maxmur and the democratic region of the Yazidi at Sengal. All these regions are part of the liberated areas. Again a few days later, the Turkish army started an operation to invade Başur (Southern Kurdistan) which has since been bombed constantly. On the 23 rd and 25 th of June 2020, several deadly attacks by drones by the Turkish army have been recorded in Rojava and Suleymaniya. Many people were forced to flee and abandon their now burned down houses with their agricultural lands and crops were completely destroyed while many civilians lost their lives from the attack of the Turkish army. The Kurdish guerrillas are responding to the deadly attacks by the Turkish state, defending the people and the revolutionary experience of the democratic confederation. The war in the Kurdish mountains rages non-stop, as is the Turkish occupation of the Kurdistan territory. Meanwhile, the Turkish state has violated every international convention, as well the truce declared as response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The perpetrators of this crime that has been committed for years by theTurkish state – the capitalists and the governments they control – are once again silencing the Kurdish people after having given the green light the imperialist plans of the Turkish state.

The Kurdish liberation movement organizations call for solidarity actions in the rebellious Rojava last 18 th and 19 th of July. On the 19/7/2012, a brilliant dawn of social revolution broke upon the people of Middle East. It was at this moment that the social revolution began in Rojava. On the 19 th of July, 1936 the organized working class and farmers of Spain stood against the fascist military coupled by the dictator Francisco Franco. For three years they were engaged in a fierce revolutionary fight for the construction of a libertarian communist society. The legacy of the battles that the workers, the farmers, the anarcho-syndicalists and anarcho-communists of the Iberian Peninsula is being passed today to the revolutionary people of Kurdistan. Their fight is our own; it is the struggle of the international proletariat. That is why we are called upon to defend on a coordinated and international scale the social revolution in Rojava. As anarchists we have to do everything in our ability to strengthen the international anti-capitalist, anti-statist, anti-imperialist revolutionary movement.

On the other hand, the totalitarian regime of Iran, which in its media propaganda tries to present itself as an anti-imperialist government, is in fact a ruthless Islamic mafia that can be classified as a terrorist group such as ISIS. In addition to the military presence of the Iranian regime, which has massacred tens of thousands of people, including children, in defense of the Syrian dictator, the Iranian regime attacks Kurdish positions in northern Iraq on a daily basis in parallel with the Turkish regime. In addition to various Kurdish groups that are constantly attacked by Iranian regime soldiers and artillery, PJAK is a branch of the PKK that is one of the Iranian regime's main targets for attacks in northern Iraq. The Rojava revolution has become one of the nightmares of the Iranian regime, because the Iranian regime is afraid that the Kurds of other regions, including Rojhelat (western Iran) will build another Rojava following the example of the Rojava revolution, for these reasons, the Iranian regime has carried out bloody repressions, including imprisonment, torture, and executions, for years, more than any other region against the
Kurds in Iran.

The international solidarity of the oppressed and the exploited is the collective power that can give the finishing blow to the capitalist system. An untiring and unselfish contribution to the revolutionary processes all over the world is the duty of the anarchist movement today. The international social revolution, in the direction of the libertarian communism, indicates the strategic course of our actions. This direction for the everyday fight against capitalism: acting locally and thinking internationally. For all this we believe that the best way of solidarity and support for the Kurdish revolution is the strengthening and deepening of social struggles in our regions and the consolidation of our anarchist political organizations.
