Environmentalist, vegetarian, anarchist combatants who fight in Kobane.
We are sitting at the headquarters of United Freedom Forces (Birleşik Özgürlük Güçleri) in Kobane. I ask for a cigarette from a fighter aiming to meet and talk with him. While he offers one, I’m asking how many group form the United Freedom Forces. He says that, this force consist of salvationists (Kurtuluşçular), MLSPB, TDP and anarchists and indicates that he is an anarchist too.
What is the aim of fighting here for the anarchists?
I’m one of the founders of Social Insurrection and also their spokesperson. When the attack of ISIS started in Kobane, in the name of international solidarity, not considering it too much, we idealized to raise the defense as International Brigades much like in the Spanish Civil War.
United Freedom Forces was formed by different socialist factions from Turkey. Being an anarchist, how did you become involved with this structure?
United Freedom Forces was founded when we arrived. We made a call to anarchists and ecologists. (more…)

A message for ecologists and anarchists about the current situation:
To be vegan will not liberate animals, nature and humans. Spaces for socialization will not destroy the system. But organized and armed struggle against capitalism has changed and will change a lot. The problems are social, this is not a question about the individual liberation. Freedom will not occur until all of us are free. Only the armed struggle can stop the murderers of nature.
Those who theorize the cowardice of reconciliation are at the service of capitalism. Those who are undisciplined, devoid of revolutionary ethics, who refuse the armed struggle are the agents of fascism in our eyes.
The only way to defeat fascism is the armed struggle. Capitalism can only be destroyed through armed struggle and the armed struggle can only be fought and won by an organization which possesses theoretical unity and strong will.
Our prisoners cannot be liberated by graffiti, rallies or actions without severity, but only by organizing operations of liberation into the jails – and that is only possible via armed struggle.
Our call is to organize for armed struggle.
Get organized! Get armed! Revolt!
