Solidarity Pact of ICOR with the Kurdish liberation struggle

ICOR, 13 March 2015

 

1.

A solidarity pact between ICOR and the Kurdish liberation struggle implies a self-obligation of ICOR and all signing member organizations.

A suitable form of organization for putting it into practice are solidarity committees at the international, national and down to the local level, starting from a central solidarity committee. In these, revolutionaries and anti-imperialists and all others who are selflessly supporting the Kurdish liberation struggle shall unite. This follows the basic idea of ICOR to collaborate at the practical level wherever possible, instead of distancing oneself from one another above all and defining oneself by political differences.

 

2.

In this context, ICOR puts forward the following demands and slogans:

Recognition of Rojava and of its self-government bodies as legitimate representatives of the Syrian-Kurdish population by international law! Immediate lift of the embargo against the fighters of the PKK and the PYD.

Immediate stop of all political, economic, military and logistic aid for the IS!

For the ban, effective combating and international condemnation of the fascist IS and all fascist organizations!

Lift of the PKK ban!

Humanitarian aid for the affected Kurdish civilian population and in particular for the refugees!

Weapons for the YPG and other forces of the Kurdish guerrilla, in particular the PKK!

Hands off Rojava! Freedom for Kurdistan!

For the right of self-determination of the Kurdish people!

Long live the struggle of the Kurdish people for national and social liberation!

Long live international solidarity!

Workers of all countries, unite!

Workers of all countries and oppressed peoples, unite!

 

3.

The ICOR and its member organizations develop and support an intensive practical solidarity work . This includes, among other things:

* Collection of donations and relief supplies

* Promotion of medical aid (collection of medicine, mobilization of physicians specialized in internal surgery, winning independent physicians' organizations as “patrons” of the Kurdish medical movement)

* Support of the idea of a “peoples' coalition against IS” with an international delegation and observer group in the region

*Dispatch of international humanitarian ICOR brigades for medical care, reconstruction and other social tasks.

 

4.

The ICOR and its member organizations develop a comprehensive work of protests, resistance and information according to their respective possibilities until the situation is brought to a decision. They support or initiate militant solidarity, protest and resistance actions and promote them intensively among the working class and the broad masses in their countries and spread the the spirit of proletarian internationalism. To this effect, they seek close alliances with organizations of the Kurdish liberation movement and the Kurdish migrant organizations.

The information work comprises also

* the public announcement of the important achievements in Rojava in the struggle for freedom and democracy, for the liberation of women and for friendship among the peoples

* propagating the Kurdish liberation struggle and rejecting any terrorism smear campaign of revolutionary liberation movements

* educational work regarding the true development in Kobanê and Rojava and the imperialist scheming in connection with anti-fascist educational work

* spreading the independent revolutionary positions of ICOR against imperialism and for overcoming capitalist exploitation and oppression by revolutionary means in the united socialist states of the world

The most important international means for this is the ICOR website and using it actively.

 

5.

We seek an agreement with our partners of the Kurdish liberation struggle, which also includes their self-obligation to collaboration, at first regarding in particular the constant information of ICOR, beyond the bourgeois coverage (information; contributions for the ICOR website etc.)
