Against any imperialist aggression – Defend the road of liberation and democratic initiative in Rojava (West Kurdistan in North-Syria)

ICOR call for a solidarity campaign with the struggle in Rojava, 30 October 2013

In many parts of Syria, armed conflicts are lasting for more than two years. A movement for freedom, human rights and abolition of the state of emergency lasting since 1963 inspired by the people's uprisings in the Arabic countries rapidly turned into an armed conflict. In the war in Syria, on the one hand the Baath regime supported by Russia, China and Iran and on the other hand paid gangs and mercenaries like the “Free Syrian Army” supported by the Western imperialists, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are facing each other. In this imperialist proxy war already more than 100 thousand people have been killed within the past two years.” (Resolution of the European Continental Conference of the ICOR, 23 June 2013)

Presently, US-imperialism as well as the UK and France are preparing a new military aggression in Syria by the NATO. The brutal war crime of using chemical weapons committed in the past days is nothing but a pretext for the US. US-imperialism itself never had any doubts about using the worst weapons but also lies for its war propaganda!

ICOR calls for:

USA and NATO – Hands off Syria!

Ban and Dismantlement of all ABC-weapons!

Oppose any colonialist and imperialist aggression! Hands off Rojava!

Solidarity with the anti-imperialist and revolutionary liberation struggle of the people's masses!

The ICOR resolution continues as follows: „Parallel to these developments, the Kurdish freedom movement rose up in the North of the country, in West Kurdistan (Rojava), liberated the Kurdish regions in Syria and started constructing self-governing structures in the political, social, economic, military and cultural area. The West Kurdish People's Defence Forces are defending these achievements against the frequent military attacks of the regular Syrian army as well as against the attempts of the armed gangs especially pushed by Turkey to advance towards the Kurdish regions.

ICOR declares its solidarity with the struggle of the people of Rojava for their democratic autonomy and self-government and with their struggle for national and social liberation. It condemns any kind of imperialist intervention and that of reactionary states of the region in Syria and defends the right of self-determination of the peoples of Syria so that they can decide themselves on their future and it demands the immediate abolition of the embargo against Rojava.”

In a call of the MLKP, member organization of ICOR Europe, it reads: “Since these structures of self administration have been built up, the population of Rojava is again and again victim to attacks by the regular Syrian army as well as by gangs operating from Turkey and mercenaries, mostly the El Nusra Gang (a branch of Al Qaeda). This does not only imply that malicious attacks on Kurdish towns and villages are carried out again and again with, mortar shells, tanks and hundreds of armed fighters, but also civilians are abducted in order to put pressure on the population. Presently, several hundred people, mainly women and children, are still at the mercy of the gangs. There are daily fights between the paid gangs and the Kurdish people's defence units (YPG).

Besides the fights, attempts are made to force the Kurdish autonomy to surrender by imposing a comprehensive embargo, from which the population of Rojava suffers severely. The borders to South- (Iraq) and to North Kurdistan (Turkey) were closed since the building of the structures of democratic autonomy. … From the Syrian side, there are hardly any opportunities to provide the Kurdish areas with the most vital supplies, too. In spite of all these attacks and obstacles, the population of Rojava is determined to continue on its path of democratic autonomy and self-government and to defend its achievements.“

Against all kinds of colonial and imperialist aggression!
