PKK: “They Will Drown in the Blood they Spill”

PKK STATEMENT

 January 22, 2018: “Today is the day to object to fascism, colonialism and genocide, and to show solidarity with the Kurdish freedom struggle. On this basis, we are calling on the peoples of the Middle East and all democrats everywhere among humanity to object to the AKP-MHP fascism’s massacres and attacks and to support the Afrin resistance.” (PKK Executive Committee)

 

Firat News (Ajansa Nûçeyan a Firatê – ANF‎), has just released a Press Statement from the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in response to the heavily-armed and illegal Turkish invasion of the Afrin Canton in the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria – Rojava which has already resulted in many innocent civilian casualties.

 

The Statement reads:

“As a result of the AKP-MHP fascist dictatorship’s invasion attacks, dozens of civilians including children have already lost their lives, dozens of others have been wounded and many residential areas have been damaged in this beautiful land that has been the most stable region in Syria and Rojava for the last 5 years and that Kurds, Arabs and Turkmen have lived together in fraternity on the foundation of democratic autonomy.

 

The Turkish state and government, whose Syrian policies have completely failed, is trying to become relevant again through this aggression.

 

It is very clear that through this, the fascist AKP-MHP wants to avenge the Raqqa defeat of ISIS through an attack on Afrin. Just as they tried to take revenge on the people of Northern Kurdistan for the defeat of ISIS in Kobanê with the July 24 attack in 2015, now they want to take revenge for the defeat they experienced in the face of the heroic resistance by the people and guerillas of Northern Kurdistan on the people of Afrin.

 

Afrin and the whole of Rojava will be the grave of this AKP-MHP fascism.

 

Those who attempt to ‘de-Kurdify’ Afrin or destroy the Rojava Freedom Revolution will themselves fall in the face of the resistance for freedom in Afrin and Rojava, and they will be dispatched to the trash can of history. On this basis, we believe that the people of Afrin and the forces fighting for freedom will end this AKP-MHP fascism with the heroic resistance they are developing.

 

Today is the day to object to fascism, colonialism and genocide, and to show solidarity with the Kurdish freedom struggle.

 

On this basis, we are calling on the peoples of the Middle East and all democrats everywhere among humanity to object to the fascist AKP-MHP massacres and attacks and to support the Afrin resistance.”
