Immediate stop to any aggression against Rojava by Turkey and its reactionary partners!

ICOR resolution 02 January 2019


On 12 December the fascist Turkish state with the Erdogan government at the top announced a further military invasion of the autonomous region of Northern Syria. The attacks are extremely extensive, as they are planned over a length of 500km. Meanwhile, the refugee camp Mexmur and the Yazidi settlement area Sengal have become the targets of air strikes. Several persons were killed or injured. One of the primary reasons is the declared goal of annihilating the liberated area of Rojava/Democratic Federation of Northern and Eastern Syria, where several ethnic groups live together under self-administration.

From the beginning the ICOR has supported the liberation struggle of the Kurdish people – this in the unity of word and deed, as with the construction of the “ICOR clinic” in Kobanê and its ecological improvement, in countless demonstrations, and worldwide most recently with the Afrin solidarity day in March 2018. ICOR follows the principle: No liberation struggle should stand alone and be isolated!

On the occasion of the attack on Afrin the ICOR wrote: “The worldwide cooperation and coordination of the struggles for peace, freedom, socialism for the preparation of the international socialist revolution is the order of the day. Every progressive struggle must become a part of the worldwide anti-imperialist struggle and of building up an anti-imperialist united front.”

The democratic construction in Rojava/Northern Syria stands for the successful fight against the IS/Daesh, for democracy and freedom, women’s rights, environmental protection, respect for all ethnic groups and religions. It is an encouragement to freedom fighters all over the world. The international solidarity in turn stands for unswerving solidarity and inclusion of the Kurdish liberation struggle in the worldwide struggle against imperialism. The ICOR has developed its practical solidarity with the “ICOR clinic”. The eighth ICOR brigade has just completed its work and built a powerful photovoltaic system on the roof of the birth clinic. It strengthens the work of the clinic with the power of the sun – practically, and as symbol of the energy of the Rojava Revolution. It is crucial for this revolution that the self-administration forces in Rojava rely mainly on the own strength of the ethnic groups in Rojava and the power of the Kurdish liberation struggle. This attitude has mobilized worldwide support. The anti-imperialist character is a thorn in the side of Erdogan, the USA, and all the rival imperialist forces. For in Syria, various powers are struggling to divide up the sphere of influence. So Turkey defames the Kurdish YPG fighters as terrorists. It is mockery when Erdogan seemingly shows solidarity with the Palestinian people while taking brutal action against the Kurdish people.

Together with Erdogan Trump plays a dirty, icy cold and dangerous game by withdrawing the US troops from Northern Syria with the aim to deliver the Kurdish liberation struggle to the knife. The Kurdish forces SDF, YPG and YPJ never had the illusion of the US army being a protective power. The US plan A to overthrow the Assad regime and push back the Iranian and Russian imperialism did not work out. Now Trump again tactically plays the Erdogan card in the framework of NATO. Even in his government circles this maneuver meets with massive resentment. Secretary of Defense Mattis and the Syria Envoy Brett McGurk immediately resigned. The US army declares to have achieved its aim of defeating IS/Daesh in Syria. That is a deliberate lie. There are still 3,000 armed IS/Daesh fascists in the Syrian Hajin, 20,000 more on the Iraqi side of the border. About 3,000 IS/Daesh fascists are prisoners of the Syrian Autonomous Administration. An attack by Turkey acutely endangers the democratic self-governed Rojava and brings about the danger of newly strengthening IS/Daesh. The imperialist “anti-IS/Daesh coalition” shows its true anti-peoples face.

  • Immediate stop to any aggression of the fascist Turkish state and all imperialist and regional powers!

  • Fight against the reactionary collaboration of various governments such as those of Germany, the USA and others with the Turkish-fascist government.

  • Solidarity with the democratic autonomy region Northern Syria, with the Kurdish and Palestinian liberation struggles!

  • Worldwide building of an international, antifascist, anti-imperialist resistance front against fascism and war.

  • Forward with the construction of ICOR!

  • Strengthen the Kurdish voice in the ICOR!

  • Forward with the preparation of the international socialist revolution!
