ICOR resolution against the blockade of Nepal and Rojava

ICOR, 15 December 2015


The ICOR demands the immediate stop of the embargo against Rojava (West Kurdistan/North Syria) and of the blockade of India against Nepal.

The ICOR calls for worldwide protests against the attempt of imperialist and reactionary forces to stifle the achievements in the struggle for freedom and democracy in Rojava and Nepal.

In Nepal in 2006 the monarchy was overthrown after more than 200 years. On 20 September 2015 a progressive constitution of a laicist federal and democratic republic could be adopted. It includes democratic and women's rights, the protection of minorities etc. Since then the country is being violently blackmailed by an economic blockade of the Indian Modi government and reactionary leaders of the Madeshi ethnicity living in Nepal. There is a lack of kerosine, of gas for cooking and to a growing extent also of food and urgently needed medications. Public life is collapsing. In the country of the 2nd World Women's Conference in March 2016 the consequences for the population are already exceeding those of the previous earthquake. It is scandalous that this humanitarian catastrophe is kept under the cloak of silence in bourgeois media.

In Rojava in 2012 the democratic revolution achieved a significant victory. By struggle it achieved far-reaching women's rights, obtained social improvements, emphasizes the ecological question and rejects any national and religious discrimination. In January 2015 the Kurdish liberation struggle, in alliance with other ethnicities, defeated the fascist IS gangs of murderers in the battle over Kobanî, lasting 134 days. Neither military attacks of Turkey nor fascist massacres of the IS could stop the reconstruction of Kobanî, of which 80% had been destroyed. On 20 November the health-care and social center built by 177 brigadists from eleven countries jointly with the population was handed over to the self-government bodies of Kobanî. During the last year 170,000 refugees returned to Kobanî to take part in the reconstruction and to conclude the democratic revolution.

The imperialists and reactionaries, above all the Turkish Erdogan government, are trying to strangle the reconstruction of Kobanî and Rojava with a diplomatic, political, military, economic and humanitarian embargo. Urgently needed construction material, medications etc. are stopped at the border. Hunger is spreading in parts of Rojava. In violation of international law, humanitarian helpers of the ICOR solidarity brigades are denied access to Rojava instead of finally creating a humanitarian corridor. The imperialist governments, especially the German Merkel/Steinmeier government, are denying diplomatic recognition to Rojava and humanitarian help for reconstruction.

Defending the democratic sovereignty of Nepal and the democratic revolutionary process in Rojava is an important part of the worldwide struggle for freedom and democracy and of the preparation of the international socialist revolution.

Immediate lift of the embargo against Rojava and the blockade of India against Nepal!

Long live international solidarity!

Long live the worldwide struggle for freedom, democracy and socialism!
