MLKP CC: "The day is the day
for all anti-fascist, anti-colonial, anti-capitalist forces, revolutionary and
communist parties and groups of the region, especially in Northern Kurdistan and
Turkey, to run to the front trenches of the struggle"
The fascist Turkish capitalist colonial army has launched an attack to crush the
leadership of PKK and the guerrilla forces, to implement the plan for Kurdish
genocide, to enslave the women, to put the peoples in chains, to persecute the
Alevis, Yezidis, Christians and Muslim masses who do not think like them and to
drown them in blood. The free areas in South Kurdistan, Rojava and Shengal are
bombed continuously by dozens of fighter planes. The UAV and UCAV are hunting
for people. The fascist chief Erdogan, who is supported by the USA, Russia and
NATO, wants to realize the plan of the defeated enemy of humanity, torturer,
rapist, racist and political Islamist ISIS.
The Turkish capitalist army has announced that the fascist chief regime has
received the order to destroy the MLKP forces and revolutionaries in Rojava and
Medya Defense Zones. The Iranian mullah regime, which is shaken by the women-led
revolution in Eastern Kurdistan, offers support to the racist, fascist, Shiite
enemy Erdoğan. The Iraqi and Syrian rulers are de facto cooperating with the
Turkish Republic, which is bombing with its warplanes. The KDP is deepening its
betrayal of the Kurdish people and adding new crimes to its crimes. The Kurdish
people are at the center of the denialist colonialist attacks and war, with the
aim of destroying them, committing genocide and eliminating their achievements.
But it is also a war waged with the aim of subjugating the Arab and Persian
peoples. It is a war to transform the countries of the region into population
areas and markets in which the Turkish capital oligarchy is to flourish. To the
extent that this war achieves its goals, it is a war that backhands all sections
of the Turkish people who want freedom, a decent life, social justice and
economic, democratic rights. It is a war that turns the prisons, of which there
are hundreds today, into gas chambers.
We call on the workingclass, women, youth, labourers and poor people of Turkey,
Northern Kurdistan, Rojava, Syria, Iraq and Southern Kurdistan to rise up
against this war that aims at Kurdish genocide and enslavement of the peoples of
the region. Let us stand up. Let us carry the fire of revolution that burns in
Rojhilat, Iran and Balochistan to all four winds. We call on the
anti-imperialist, anti-fascist and revolutionary forces of Palestine, Lebanon,
Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria to join this struggle. At the same
time, we must mobilize the working people against this fascist war aggression
against the Arab people and all the oppressed.
We call on the anti-fascist, revolutionary, internationalist parties,
organizations and anarchist groups of Europe, the progressive, anti-fascist,
revolutionary masses of workers, women and youth who are against the wars of
occupation and plunder to surround the governments, the parties represented in
the bourgeois parliaments, the United Nations and the European Parliament. Let's
demand the end of military and financial support to the Erdogan regime and the
cancellation of the agreements in this regard. Let's turn the embassies,
consulates and trade missions into fronts by organizing demonstrations in front
of them to expel all representatives of the Turkish rulers in Europe.
We call on the revolutionary and communist forces of the whole world from India
to Colombia, from the Philippines to Chile, from Bangladesh to Togo, from Russia
to the USA, from Georgia to South Africa to block the representations of the
racist, fascist, denialist Turkish capitalist colonial state in the countries
and areas where they are fighting and force them to leave the country. Let us
hit the economic and commercial interests and organizations of the Turkish
bosses and states and make them uninhabitable in the country.
Let us not leave alone the peoples who are fighting for freedom and the ongoing
revolution in Rojhilat, Iran and Balochistan; the guerrillas who, with
superhuman resistance, sacrifice and heroism, have stopped and terrified the
invading Turkish capitalist colonial army in the free areas of Southern
Kurdistan; the peoples who continue to defend the revolution in Northern and
Eastern Syria; the oppressed Yazidi people of Sinjar. Let us prevent the
genocide of the Kurds, the destruction of the anti-fascist, anti-colonial,
revolutionary and communist forces in the region, the crushing of the revolution
in Rojhilat, Iran and Balochistan.
This day is the day when all anti-fascist, anti-colonial, anti-capitalist
forces, revolutionary and communist parties and groups in the region, especially
in Northern Kurdistan and Turkey, run to the front trenches of the struggle.
Long live the resistance, long live the victory!
Long live the internationalist struggle of the world working class and the
Statement of the Revolutionary Communist Movement in Northern and Eastern Syria:
We call on all peoples to the streets against the occupation!
The resistance against occupation and fascism will win!
Since yesterday evening the fascist Turkish occupation state has been bombing
KobanÍ, Zirgan, DÍrÓk, Tell Tamer, Shehba in Rojava and the Medya Defence Zones.
With these simultaneous attacks, the Turkish state, which wants to break the
will and existence of the Kurdish people by crushing the Rojava revolution, is
also targeting the will of Arab, Assyrian, Armenian and all peoples in the
The Turkish occupation state, which has suffered great defeats in the face of
the resistance of the guerrillas in the free mountains despite chemical weapons
and the latest technology, announces great victories in all its media. The
fascist Turkish occupation state, which could not do anything against this
defeat, is now trying to achieve successes with simultaneous air attacks. For a
long time, it has been preparing to attack Rojava and vowed revenge, which is
why it organised the Taksim explosion with its own secret service to legitimise
its attacks. It didn't work, nobody was convinced, the state's plans didn't
work. But it swore revenge anyway.
These occupation attacks by the Turkish state, which has been planning to invade
the KobanÍ-Minbic line for a long time, are of course not independent of the
policy and approval of the USA and Russia. The same imperialist powers have
participated in these attacks against the population by opening the airspace.
These attacks aim to destroy the achievements of the Kurdish people and the
people in the region. In order to destroy the anti-colonial, democratic and
popular side of the Rojava revolution, the imperialist powers, especially the
USA and Russia, are swinging the Turkish occupation state over the heads of the
peoples in the region like a sword of Damocles. In the face of eleven years of
civil war in Syria, those responsible for the invasion attacks against our
revolution and for turning the region into a bloodbath are the same forces today
as before. What they did not achieve through brutal gangs they organised and
nurtured, such as the Al-Nusra Front and ISIS, they are now trying to achieve
with the help of the Turkish state.
KobanÍ is the target of the attacks today. Our people cannot remain silent in
the face of these attacks on houses, hospitals and civilian settlements and
living spaces. Dozens of fighters, civilians, journalists, etc. have died in the
attacks. Before 25 November, women in particular, who are experiencing all
dimensions of violence with the occupation attacks, must turn the streets into
places of resistance and protect their achievments. Young people, whose future
is to be robbed by the attacks of the occupying forces, must light the fire of
resistance against the occupying forces, street by street, position by position,
front by front. All the peoples of the region, the peoples of four parts of
Kurdistan, everyone who calls himself a human, must light the streets with the
fire of resistance. In the face of these attacks of the fascist Turkish
occupying state, especially women, youth and all our people must mobilise to
defend the revolution and the cities.
Of course, these attacks will not remain unresponded. Today, we will continue to
defend our revolution and our country with the spirit of resistance of KobanÍ,
AfrÓn and SerÍkaniyÍ. As the Communist Revolutionary Movement, we will oppose
fascism and occupation to the last drop of blood by defending our revolution and
achievements in all areas. They want to occupy all our countries by breaking our
will through occupation attacks and special and psychological war methods.
These attacks are not independent of the 2023 target of AKP-MHP palace fascism
and Erdoğan's dictatorship. Palace fascism, which is experiencing great crises
of collapse at home and abroad, is carrying out these attacks to strengthen its
rule in the region. We know that this is a war against our existence. Today, the
defence and the achievements of the Rojava revolution are the guarantee for the
revolutions in the region. For this reason, all the peoples of the region,
revolutionaries, democrats, women, workers and labourers and young people should
take to the streets with the spirit of resistance and solidarity of KobanÍ in
2014, with the spirit of Serhildan on 7-8 October. All our peoples and the
oppressed must unite around KobanÍ again. To defend our past, our future, our
existence, our identity and our dignity, the resistance against occupation and
fascism is our vow of revenge until the last drop of our blood. This resistance
is the resistance of dignity, this resistance is the resistance of victory, and
victory is so close that it can be achieved through resistance....
Down with occupation and colonialism!
Long live the Rojava revolution!
Long live the women's revolution!
Revolutionary Communist Movement (TKŞ)
of MLKP International Bureau:
The united power of the peoples of the world will defeat colonialism! The people
in Northern and Eastern Syria are not alone!
Once again the fascist Turkish state carried out large-scale airstrikes on
Rojava and South Kurdistan. The fascist regime-in-chief, which has not been able
to make any progress in the military operation against the Kurdish freedom
movement in South Kurdistan despite the usage of chemical weapons and
state-of-the-art technology, is seeking a way out of the political quagmire and
regime crisis in which it finds itself. The Turkish colonial state knows that
the freedom of the Kurdish people is his existential question and has been
preparing the third occupation attack on Rojava for months and negotiated with
the imperialists for this purpose. The regime under the fascist head of state
Erdogan, is gradually losing its own legitimacy and is under pressure from the
upcoming parliamentary elections. The bombing in Taksim was an intelligence-organised
plan of the counter-guerrilla state to justify the new invasion on Rojava and to
win the approval of the Turkish people poisoned by racism and chauvinism. With
the explosion in Istiklal Street, the regime is also trying to claim the
occupation operations as "self-defence" according to the UN Charter.
The USA and Russia are trying to put pressure on the revolutionary
administration of Rojava according to their imperialist interests and gave their
approval to this bombardment as before.
The extension of the air attacks of the Turkish colonial army into a ground
offensive will depend on the strength of the united resistance of our peoples
against the occupation and the international solidarity. In this sense, the
reaction of the self-defence forces of Rojava to the attacks of the Turkish army
to protect the autonomous administrative region is legitimate and required.
While the fascist Turkish state is bombing civilian areas in order to force the
people of the region to flee again, the will and the degree of organisation of
our peoples are the greatest defence force against the occupation.
Therefore, we call on all the peoples of the region and the world to become
active, to take to the streets and to mobilise against the attacks of the
fascist Turkish state.
With the united power of the peoples, we will defeat colonialism and fascism and
bury them in history forever.
