Statement on the invasion of Rojava by Turkish fascism

Since July 19, 2012, in Rojava, the part of Kurdistan that lies within the borders of the state of Syria, a genuine revolution has taken place that over the last few years has brought peace to the northeast of the state of Syria, while the rest of the state suffered the consequences of a civil war that after all is nothing more than a small world war, as all the world powers have been involved.

During these seven years of revolution, we have seen how an authentically democratic process has developed, starting with the total liberation of women, the economic emancipation in the form of confederate cooperatives that respect the environment and the creation of structures in the form of horizontal councils where decisions are taken from the bottom up and not the other way around, freeing the northeast of the Syrian state from the criminal dictatorship of the Al-Assad and from the fundamentalist fascism of the Islamic State or Daesh, expelling the latter from the whole territory of the Syrian state.

The Kurds have shown extreme courage and lost many comrades during the atrocious battles, and at the same time, they have been able to build their own political project of social emancipation in the form of Democratic Confederalism.

The proposal of Democratic Confederalism goes far beyond being a solution for a small territory within the borders of the state of Syria. It is a proposal for the whole of the Middle East and for the whole world, a proposal for peace, coexistence, freedom and respect for all people and groups, starting with the liberation of women. But this is not in the interest of the great world powers, which want instability and constant war for the Middle East and so many other places on the planet in order to continue plundering resources and continue to benefit from wars, death and destruction.

On October 9, 2019, the fascist Turkish state began an unprecedented offensive on Red, supported by all kinds of radical mercenary groups. In a few days hundreds of civilians have been killed and thousands injured. At the time of writing, more than 70,000 people have been forced to leave behind their lives, their companions, their freedom.

The militia sisters of the YPJ/YPG fight tirelessly, together with the rest of the population, against this new offensive.

From Komun we see it essential to be in solidarity with this struggle, as well as with the rest of the struggles on the planet, which fight against capitalism and the fascist and authoritarian governments.

We think that it is very important to give visibility to this conflict, that everyone get to know what is happening in Rojava. Participate in all the mobilizations called, propose it where nobody has yet done it, be informed and debate on the Democratic Confederalism and above all, as the Kurds always say, work day by day to make our own revolution in our house, because for them, it is the best solidarity that they can receive.

Şehîd namirin! Those who fight for life will never die!

Piştgiriya bi Rojava! Solidarity with Rojava!
