War against ISIS/Daesh: YPG Media Center reports from the frontlines of the fight for the city of Kobane (Kurdistan)

Friday, December 12th, 2014


For the Media and Public Opinion
People’s Defense Units (YPG) – Media Center

KOBANI, Rojava| December 12, 2014LINK

KOBANI, Rojava | December 11, 2014 – The attacks by the ISIS terrorists aiming the occupation of Kobani continued on the 87th day. Yet our forces are pushing the terrorists back inside the city while the operations outside the town are ongoing.

On the south-eastern front of Kobani, the terrorist groups last night attempted to launch an attack near the Cultural Center. Our forces intervened in this attempt and managed to inflict severe blows to the terrorists. In this region 7 terrorists were killed where the other attackers were only able to collect their casualties and flee the location.

In south-west Kobani, our forces carried out an operation against the terrorist groups in the Rahbe area. The operation resulted in the killing of 2 terrorists. Another operation was also conducted by our troops against the terrorist groups on the Aleppo road, 2 terrorists were killed in this operation. (more…)

Theodoris Sipsas’ trial beginning, London solidarity event (UK)

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

spsb.F

via rabble:

The “Marfin” case trial against anarchist comrade Theodoris Sipsas is due to start in Athens tomorrow (Monday 1 December). Theodoris is being framed for the deaths of three bank employees who died when the Marfin bank was set on fire during a Greek general strike in May 2010.

The frame-up is crude. Theodoris Sipsas says, “the case file clearly proves, through witness statements, photographic material and videos from CCTV cameras that I had nothing to do with any attack, at any time, that day in the centre of Athens”. The Greek state has reopened the case to use it as a political weapon against the anarchists and protest movements in Greece, part of their “theory of two extremes” that tries to equate the wave of social revolts since 2008 with the murders carried out by the Golden Dawn nazis.

See this pamphlet (pdf, 8 pages) for a full account.

In London, comrades here are holding an info-evening and benefit on Saturday 6 December.

We are welcoming you to join us on *Saturday 6th of December* to our benefit event for the anarchist T. Sipsas who is prosecuted for the Marfin case of 2010 in Athens, Greece.

*”The prosecution of T. Sipsas is a prosecution of all those who struggle against totalitarianism and barbarity, against the devaluation of life and dignity.”*

There will be a short film screening ”*the accidental prosecution of an anarchist*” followed by an update on the case from T. Sipsas.

*Start at 7pm* with a cocktail bar throughout the night! After the briefing, there will be live music and djs! (£3 entry)

For location please contact the infoline 07405 412161 *or* eve_location@yahoo.co.uk*

Please feel free to spread the word!!!

We’d also like to ask you for your understanding to respect the fact that we do not wish this event to be republished on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter etc
*see you all there!*

The attacks by ISIS/Daesh to occupy Kobane continued yesterday on the 71st day. While the People’s Defense Units and Women’s Defence Units (YPG/YPJ) are continuing their operations, the scum of Daesh are now pushed on to the defensive due to this military campaign.

In South Kobane an operation was conducted by YPG/YPJ units against several occupied areas. In this action 4 positions were liberated and ISIS were forced to retreat from the area. in this battle 7 Daesh were killed, and a number of weapons were captured by Peshmerga forces (see video below).

War against ISIS/Daesh: International solidarity to the fighters in Kobane (Kurdistan)

Victory to the fighters in Kobane – Death to the fascists-mercenaries of the ISIS/Daesh.

YPG Media Centre

Kobanî / November 20, 2014 – The terrorist attacks by the ‘ISIS’ mercenaries to occupy Kobanî continued yesterday on the 66th day. Yet our forces of the People’s Defense Units (YPG) and the Women’s Defense Units YPJ have limited the terrorists’ attacks, and are continuing their operations. The terrorists however are constantly shelling the residential districts of the city center.

On the eastern front of Kobanî, our forces last night carried out several operations against the terrorists in the Sukul Hal area, the municipality street, and the Azadî (Freedom) square. The operations on the three locations were effectively conducted where 7 terrorists were killed.

On the southern front, our troops operated against several areas that had been occupied by the terrorists. In these operation a motorcycle was destroyed and 9 terrorists were killed.

In the last night’s tasks one of our comrades who played a major role to accomplish the operations, fought heroically and was martyred in action.

Demo at Turkish capitalists’ Savoy ball (London)

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

October 28, 2014

From rabbleldn:

About 50 people made a solidarity demo for Kobane at the Savoy Hotel from 6pm on Saturday 25 October. The Turkey Britain Chamber of Commerce and Industry were holding their annual ball, attended by the ambassador and deputy economy minister, and sponsored by global bank HSBC.

The demo was a good mix of London anarchists and antifascists alongside Kurdish youth, and other autonomous groups and individuals. There were no cops there initially, and the demonstrators took over the private road off the Strand that leads into the hotel, blocking all the main entrances with banners and making a lot of noise. Chants included “We are Kobane, Kobane is us”, “Alerta, Alerta, Antifascista”, “No Pasaran”, “Who supports ISIS, Turkey supports ISIS”, etc.

The demo didn’t shut the “ISIS business dinner” down, but gave a bit of a shake-up to the bourgeois ball-goers and seemed like a major embarassment to the Savoy hotel management. More importantly, it was a show of solidarity with the fighters in Rojava, and with the Kurdish and Turkish youth who have been going up against the guns of the Turkish state.

The police didn’t arrive for half an hour or more, then rocked up with five or so vans full. They managed to clear the private road and threatened the crowd with some kind of “public order” notices.

The ambassador and minister were not spotted, but presumably came in through a side entrance or otherwise, they were due to make speeches from 7.30PM. Guests had also been promised a chocolate fountain.

War against ISIS/Daesh: Kobane latest – ISIS on retreat, new dangers ahead … (Kurdistan)

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

From rabbleldn:

In the last days there has been a shift in fortunes for the Kurdish defence units holding out in Kobane. Although heavy clashes continue, ISIS are being pushed back into the fringes of the town. The peoples protection units (YPG) have fought alone, for 35 days now, surrounded by ISIS (Da’esh) fascists with the latest weapons, blockaded by Turkey, with US air strikes only serving to funnel more fascist troops towards them.

Last week it looked like what everyone had feared was about to come to pass, as ISIS flags were raised towards the centre of the town. It looks, at least for now, as if the tide has been turned. This is the work of the defence groups of autonomous Rojava, fighting alone, fighting for their lives and their freedom.

In the last two days, there has also been a shift in the politics of US and Turkey. Yesterday (19 October) the US forces for the first time made air drops of small arms, ammunition, and medical supplies to the YPG (peoples defence units) in central Kobane. Then today (20 October) an announcement was reported from the Turkish state that it would allow US-backed Iraqi Kurdish fighters in to reinforce the town. (more…)

War against ISIS/Daesh: Interview With Mehmûd Berxwedan, YPG Commander – ISIS Has Lost In Kobanê (Kurdistan)

Saturday, October 18th, 2014

Mehmûd Berxwedan – a member of the General Command of the YPG – has spoken with journalist Ersin Çaksu in a new interview for Özgür Gündem. Berxwedan told Çaksu that all those who said that Kobanê ‘had fallen’ or ‘will fall’ had themselves be defeated, and that if a corridor is opened to the city ISIS will be entirely cleared from the area. Below is the full interview translated into English.

-We would like to thank you for taking some time for us in this very busy period. In the first place I want to ask why Kobanê is so important for ISIS. Why did it attack it with such force?

In our earlier interview we spent a lot of time around the question of why Kobanê was being targeted. The 19th of July Rojava Revolution began in Kobanê. Kobanê became a symbol of resistance and freedom. Kobanê also became an expression of the will of the Kurdish people in Rojava. The revolution began in Kobanê and spread to the rest of Rojava. For this reason Kobanê upset the plans of both certain international powers and certain regional powers who did want the Kurds to express their own will. From that day until now they have expended much effort in breaking and destroying that will. However they did reach their goal of a siege. They have been targeting Kobanê in particular for over a year and a half. So why Kobanê? Because Kobanê has no connection to the other regions. It has no physical connections to either the Cizîrê or Efrîn [cantons]. It is a region surrounded by the [ISIS] gangs. They thought that they could destroy Kobanê by surrounding it. The attacks that have developed for over a year and half were carried out toward this end. However they thought that they could break the will of Kobanê and make it fall very quickly. But they didn’t reach their goal. (more…)

War against ISIS/Daesh: Solidarity Campaign To Send Arms To Rojava (Kurdistan)

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

From InsurrectionNews:

Hardly anything is as depressing as news of the last days about the siege of Kobane in Northern Syria. Kobane is the capital of the self-managed canton Rojava – an example for an alternative development of peace and social equality in a region experienced the complete opposite at the moment.

For this development, a change in the orientation of PKK seems to be important, which has a strong backing in the region. The imprisoned Abdullah Öcalan has absorbed US-anarchist Murray Bookchin, for example. Activists report that this political reorientation influences movements in Rojava. (more…)
