Statement by Nikos Maziotis to the appeals court at the first trial of the Revolutionary Struggle on July 7 – Concerning the bankruptcy of the country (Greece)

Monday, July 13th, 2015

As is well known, the repressive attack by the state against Revolutionary Struggle in 2010, as an historical fact, was a counterpart to the signing of the first memorandum by the Papandreou government and bringing the country under the authority of the IMF, the ECB, and the EU. As was said at the time by a government official, our arrests prevented “a large terrorist attack that would have ended the economy,” a statement proving the dangerousness of the action of Revolutionary Struggle at a critical juncture for the regime.

The first trial against the organization was in the period of the application of the first memorandum, developments that included controlled bankruptcy proceedings and imposed a social policy of genocide and euthanasia towards segments of the population that caused thousands of deaths so far, and poverty, hunger and misery. When the first trial started in October 2011, we had stated that the trial was conducted in a period awaiting formal bankruptcy of the country, which did not happen then, because there was unveiled a controlled bankruptcy regime in order to save the lenders, the then holders of Greek bonds and to defend the Eurozone from the risk of transmission of the Greek crisis.

It is an irony of history that ultimately the bankruptcy of Greece is associated with the days of the leftist Syriza government almost four years later, which announced a referendum on the question YES or NO to the proposals of lenders for the new memorandum that they will sign. Along with the bankruptcy of the country comes the bankruptcy of the left social-democratic illusions that promised state interventions in favor of the workers and the poor of the EU inside a globalized neoliberal environment.

War against ISIS/Daesh: Statement on the Conclusion of Operation Cmdr. Rubar Qamishlo (Kurdistan)

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

July 10: Statement on the Conclusion of Operation Cmdr. Rubar Qamishlo, Briefed By Cmdr. Sozdar Derik in July 10 Press Conference

For the Media and Public Opinion

ROJAVA, Syria (July 10, 2015) – A major military exercise, Operation Commander Rubar Qamisho, which was initiated by combined forces of the People’s Defense Units, Women’s Defense Units, alongside fighters from the Burkan al-Firat (Euphrates Volcano, Free Syrian Army) Joint Operations Room and the effective support of the Anti-ISIS International Coalition – in order to liberate the rural district to the west of Jazira (Cizire) region of Rojava, Syria – managed to achieve incredible and historical successes. The terror of the Daesh (ISIS) organization which treaded on all human values and inspired fear in hearts of the region’s people with their vicious attacks, was delivered with significant blows in the group’s largest setback since its foundation.

As before this operation, a strategic defeat was inflicted to the ISIS terrorists in the city of Kobani. After that conquest, two of the tactical military sites for the terrorists – Til Hemis and Til Berak – were liberated and the terrorist threats were eliminated in that region.

While directing the operation in Til Hemis and Til Berak, the Daesh terrorist carried out a major offensive against the Assyrian, Syriac, Arab and the Kurdish people living in line extent of Til Temir and Hasakah. In that way the Daesh terrorists tried very much to obstacle our movement in Til Hemis and Tel Berak as well as fighting our forces in a broader region, so that it could accomplish victory against our Units.

Text of Revolutionary Struggle member Nikos Maziotis regarding Greece’s default and exit from the EMU – en/fr/it

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

FR: Texte de Nikos Maziotis, membre de Lutte Révolutionnaire, au sujet du défaut de paiement de la Grèce et de la sortie de l’Union Monétaire et Economique Européenne. 

The SYRIZA-led government is collapsing. The Greek default and exit from the Eurozone, as choice of the lenders, is a process that started in 2010 and currently marks the beginning of the end of the SYRIZA government. The implementation of the memoranda from 2010 was one phase in the process of orderly default that the supranational economic elite had chosen, in order to ensure the sustainability of the Euro and to cut off one member that due to the debt crisis is considered gangrened and has to be expelled. Essentially, Greece’s default has always been regarded by the supranational economic elite as a prerequisite for its salvation, without even breaking the country’s obligations to the lenders, something that was ensured by the inclusion of the country into the power of the IMF, the ECB and the European Commission.

Since 2009, Greece was already a bankrupt country and this was something known by both the then government of Georgios Papandreou and the European Union. The supranational economic elite, from 2010 onwards, followed an orderly default tactic so as to safeguard the lenders, the then holders of Greek bonds, the French, German, British and American banks.

The first aim of the memorandum was that it prohibited unilateral suspension of debt payments on the part of the debtor. On that basis, all of the Greek state-owned assets were frozen to ensure the repayment of the debt.

Rigaerstrasse: 25 years of self-organisation and resistance – Street Party 6-12 July – Berlin (Germany)

Monday, June 29th, 2015

Police will attack next week, because….

Signs against the gentrification: The Rigaer street party

Dear groups, individuals and collectives „Es ist besser unsere Jugend besetzt leere Häuser als fremde Länder“ (In our youth it is better to squat empty houses than foreign countries).

Under this motto some young people started squatting houses in Rigaestrasse and in the rest of Friedrichshain in the early 90’s, creating places where they could collectively live, organize and resist.

Particularly in the following years many of the squatted houses were evicted or pressed to sign contracts as a result of the so called „Berliner Line“ which aimed to push people into a capitalistic (consumptive) lifestyle. Even the contracts didn’t prevent houses getting evicted in many cases. Nevertheless a few of the originally squatted houses persist as active spaces.

Discounting these projects that have remained, with somewhat affordable rent – the rest of our Kiez has undergone drastic changes in rent costs and real estate prices that are obvious to see / hard to ignore, with formidable and unaffordable prices for flats. (more…)

War against ISIS/Daesh: Turkish Army assisted Daesh in crossing the border disguised as YPG forces – Updated (Kurdistan)

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

YPG : June 25: Attacks by Daesh (ISIS) Terrorists on Northern Kobane

Updated: Today, in Kobane, at least 50 people [now known to be over 200] have been killed by Daesh terrorists, who attacked with 3 suicide car bombs, with one from the Turkish border at Kobane’s Mursitpinar border gate. Kobane hospital is currently unable to treat the injured all at once, for those with critical condition are attempted to be moved to North Kurdistan, Turkey. But Turkish military on the borderline are preventing the process of transferring the injured who most of them are women and children. Despite learning how serious situation of the wounded are, the Turkish military and their border officials are not responding consciously and they continue to keep the civilians waiting near the border crossing.

The ISIS terrorists have at 4 o’clock in the morning with the help of Turkish soldiers crossed the border. The ISIS terrorists were wearing the uniforms of YPG. So far 7 dead and 50 injured there. Our people need urgent help. All Kurds in Northern Kurdistan from Pirsus city (Suruç), please go to hospital, people in urgent need of blood ASAP!!!!! Please note all civilian people from Kobanê, please remain calm and don’t leave your homes!!!! In the center of Kobanê so far 10 people have died. In Berxbatan village are very heavy fighting between YPG fighters and terrorists of ISIS. It is difficult to know how many civilians have been killed in Berxbatan village [23 are reported dead so far]. Nobody from YPG was able to connect to the internet today because the Turkish telefon company “Tukcell” has been crippled.

A group of Daesh (ISIS) terrorists who waged an attack on Kobane city this morning June 25, were repulsed by our forces of the People’s/Women’s Defense Units in an appropriate reaction to their quick and simultaneous assaults. During intense fighting near the city’s border gate at least 15 attackers have been confirmed killed, while a member of the terrorists has been captured alive.

For now, clashes continue within an extent where the terrorists encounter a total blockade by the Defense Units.

Lions of Rojava: American fighter Keith Broomfield “Gelhat Rumet” martyred in battle of Qentere (Kurdistan)

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

A sad day for the Lions and sad day for humanity!

As you might have already heard through the media our YPG comrade and friend Keith Lewis Broomfield- Kurdish Nom de guerre Gelhat Rumet- of Massachusetts was martyred on June 3 in a battle in the Rojava village of Qentere in Kobane. He is a first American YPG fighter martyr from Rojava.

Keith joined the YPG on the 24th of February 2015. The brave American warrior came to Kobane because he could not lean back and watch the atrocity’s which were committed by ISIS. He felt very connected to the Kurdish people and was a very generous and freedom loving person. So one day our brave warrior Keith decided to make his way to Rojava and to join the fight with the YPG. He booked his flight from the United States and joined the cause.

Keith’s generosity could be seen in his visits to the refugee camp of Suruc and his desire to help the poor Children which are growing up in such a dangerous environment. (more…)

War against ISIS/Daesh: The Reconstruction of Kobane – Thoughts of a Kurdish Anarchist (Kurdistan)

Saturday, June 6th, 2015



By Zaher Baher
Haringey Solidarity Group and Kurdistan Anarchists Forum
June 3, 2015

First of all, I should mention a couple of issues in Kurdistan of Turkey (Bakur) that are strongly connected to the subject. Between 08/05 and 22/05/15 I visited a number of big towns in Bakur, including: Amed (Diyarbakir), Van, Colemerge (Hakari) and Gavar. Later I returned to Suruc and was hoping to cross the border to Kobane.

My main purpose for visiting there were three important points: First: understanding the similarity and differences between the Democratic Self Administration (DSA) in Bakur and Rojava. Second: Reconstruction of Kobane, and Third: the type of economy that Rojava can have in the future. Although the friends in Peoples Democratic Party (HDP), other organisations and the Working Committees of Rojava in Amed and Suruc tried hard to arrange my trip to Kobane but it did not happen.

Lions of Rojava: New page for foreign volunteers in the fight against ISIS/Daesh (Kurdistan)

Sunday, May 31st, 2015

New page for Lions of Rojava (the last one was shut down):

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Lions-Of-Rojava/845769785510897

Also see:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Volunteers-for-the-Lions-of-Rojava/740646939367672

Note: The YPG recruits volunteers through attraction to the cause and does not in any shape of form attempt to indoctrinate or “groom” people to travel to Rojava to join our cause. We are not like Daesh [ISIS]. The Lions of Rojava clearly explains to each individual the reality of the conflict in Rojava, the risks of travelling to the region and the expectations of the YPG. The safety of all volunteers is paramount. We always encourage the thousands of young westerners who have approached us to consider other ways to help the Kurdish and Ezidi people in the struggle against Daesh such as donating to charity or volunteering with humanitarian groups.
The YPG is not a militant militia, we are a Peoples Protection Unit that is organized under democratic, secular, gender equal and ecological principles that has formed in the absence of a functional government in Syria and the presence of a barbaric extremist Islamist threat. Our goal is to liberate all people from the tyranny and evil of Daesh and to construct a free and stable and democratic country.

About the slander by the Syrian Coalition – Statement of the General Command of the People’s Defense Units (Kurdistan)

Sunday, May 31st, 2015

To the Media and Public Opinion – 30 May 2015

National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces are pursuing a speech disgraced the honor of the Syrian Revolution and derails it from its real track

Every victory for the People’s Defense Units (YPG) at the expense of the terrorist organization of Daesh (ISIS) in Syria, with the air support by the International Coalition Forces, Syrian Coalition emerges statements (most recently on 30 May 2015) of trumped-up charges and baseless slanders. Also to discredit the achievements of the YPG, and mislead public opinion from horrific massacres committed by ISIS against the Syrian people in all their diversity – all serve the terrorist organization of ISIS.

The irresponsible actions of the Syrian Coalition intentionally distort the facts to cover up defeats and ISIS terrorism, and try to blow into the fire to stimulate hatred among the Syrian people. Syrian Coalition is pursuing a speech disgraced the honor of the Syrian Revolution and derails it from its real track and their aim to spread the spirit of sectarianism, ethnic and sectarian strife in Syria which is multi-ethnic and doctrines, to serve foreign agendas who do not want good and peace for Syrian people.
