War against ISIS/Daesh: Statements from MLKP in Kobane (Kurdistan)
International revolutionaries of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Turkey arrived in Rojava and they said the following things about their motivation to participate in the revolution:
“The Rojava Revolution is a war against fascist forces, the IS gangs. This is the reason why we are here. This revolution is also an example for the revolutions all over the world. We’re here to spread the revolution.”
“The imperialists claim that there are neither revolution nor class struggle in the 21th century. But here in Rojava there is an actual revolution. For this reason all communists and internationalists should come here to defend the revolution with weapons in their hands. The experiences gathered here have to be carried back to the countries to start the revolution their as well.”
“The presence of comrades from different countries shows that we can defend the revolution in any language. First we expected to face communication problems. But we know each other very well, as it is described in the ‘No Pasaran’ march, which tells of the international battalions in the Spanish Civil War. We also know each other that well because we share the same thoughts regarding the future. The language of revolution and war unifies us and makes us understand each other.”
„Women write history here, they show their longing for change and struggle in a very strong way. This revolutions has shown us one more time that it’s most important for women to defend the revolution. The strangulation of this revolution and the occupation of this land means also the occupation of the women’s body. Therefore, my call is primarily upon humaneness, upon youth and most important upon young women. This is our revolution. We are its subjects. This requires our participation in the revolution.”
