War against ISIS/Daesh: 8 Questions about the “Weapons for Rojava” Campaign (Kurdistan)

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

From InsurrectionNews:

1. Why did you decide to start a campaign to raise money for YPG?

The fascists of the so called “Islamic State” started their massacres in the middle east some month ago. Several thousand people have already been killed. Neither the central government of Iraq nor the Peshmerga, the troops of the Barzani-Clan, were
willing and able to stop them. The army of the YPD, the peoples defence militia of YPG and YPJ in cooperation with the PKK were the only ones who helped the Yezidis to escape. Right now, the IS wants to eliminate the autonomous Kurdish-ruled regions of Syria, known as Rojava. The specialty of this autonomous region is that its society is build on a system of a self-governance, equal rights for people of different beliefs, religion, nationalities and gender. It is thereby probably the most progressive force of the region. (more…)

War against ISIS/Daesh: 4000 Prisoners On Hunger Strike In Solidarity With Kobanê (Turkey)

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

From InsurrectionNews:

Around 4000 PKK (Kurdistan Worker’s Party) and PAJK (Kurdistan Women’s Liberation Party) prisoners in 92 Turkish jails have started hunger strike in protest against the AKP government’s collaboration with the ISIS in face of the ongoing attacks of ISIS gangs on the Kurdish town of Kobanê in West Kurdistan, Rojava.

The indefinite and irreversible hunger strike launched by PAJK inmates in Gebze on 9 October has been joined by thousands of others in 92 jails as of 15 October.

Issuing a statement at the weekend on behalf of the prisoners, Deniz Kaya had said that; “As PAJK and PKK prisoners, we declare our solidarity with the YPG and YPJ fighters, and announce we are launching a hunger strike to condemn the AKP-ISIS
collaboration, the AKP police’s hostile attitude to our people’s uprising, and will continue this action as long as the threat of genocide hangs over Kobanê, as long as the AKP-ISIS collaboration continues and until the AKP government opens an aid corridor to Rojava. If our demands are not met, we will radicalise our action.”

Kaya also called on the Kurdish people to step up their solidarity with the heroic resistance in Kobanê and to expose the AKP-ISIS collaboration.

Report from a comrade about the history of ISIS/Daesh (Iraq, Syria & Kurdistan)

Monday, October 13th, 2014

IS (Islamic State) is attacking Kobane city in Rojava (it means West Kurdistan in Kurdish) as everybody knows. But what I want to explain is, why there is this organization called Islamic State, and how it was founded. So maybe everything can become more clear.

We can say the history of ISIS begins with Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, who organized the strongest resistance against the USA and coalition troops in Iraq. Actually he is from Jordan, city called Zarqa, so he took this name “Zarqawi”.

In Jordan he was in an Salafist and Jihadist organization and he was imprisoned with his comrades because of this. Why doesn’t the Jordanian state want a Salafi-Jihadist organization? (more…)
