NEWS DESK – Cemil Mazlum, one of the YPG Kobanî Commanders, evaluated the resistance mounted against the ISIS attacks in Kobanî and Rojava during 2014, its outcomes and their expectations for 2015 for ANF [Kurdish media].

The YPG Kobanî Commander stressed that in the present situation the ISIS gangs have suffered a defeat in the face of the YPG/YPJ resistance, adding: “We are welcoming 2015 with victory steps against the ISIS gangs in Kobanî and entire Rojava.”

Recalling that the ISIS attacks on Rojava revolution have continued all year long, Commander Cemil Mazlum said that the gangs launched their most expansive attacks on Kobanî early September when -he added- Kobanî responded to the attacks with a spirit of self-sacrifice and the philosophy of leader Apo, referring to Kurdish people’s leader Abdullah Öcalan. “Kobanî has been the beginning of the end for the ISIS”, he said.

‘Rojava revolution opened the way for the peoples’

“Before evaluating the struggle of the YPG/YPJ in 2014, we firstly salute our people who laboured for the resistance throughout the year and bow respectfully before the memory of the martyrs”, said Commander Mazlum who also stressed that the year 2014 was of great importance for Kurdistan and the peoples of the Middle East.

Mazlum remarked that the Kurdish people also had an active role in the so-named ‘Arab spring’ that began early 2011, and that they as the Kurdish people had made their preparations in advance in order to change the wave of change and transformation in the Middle East into a struggle set to assure a revolutionary and democratic future for the peoples.

Noting that the Rojava revolution as part of this struggle has opened the way for a democratic future of the Kurds and the peoples of Syria and the Middle East, the YPG Commander underlined that Kurds with the Rojava revolution have been the only people to actualize a project for the liberation of the peoples.

‘Rojava revolution was intensely attacked in 2014’

The YPG Commander also pointed out that after the system in Rojava fell into place towards the year 2014, dominant and reactionary powers also realized the fact that the Rojava revolution could set an example to all the peoples in the Middle East. (more…)

Istanbul: Anarchist solidarity statement to comrade Nikos Romanos (Turkey)

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

via actforfree:

Today, with all the rage against powers that seizes lives, with the conviction of a free world, black flags are being waved all around the world.

Against companies that exploit our labour for more profit; against States that murder many of us in the name of the borders they have drawn up; against all powers that fill their pockets with our lives that they destroy, making us poorer and making the rich richer; rebellion is alive in the rage of anarchism.

The rage against bosses, companies, murderers and States, is propagating in full flood with black flags. The sorrow of being disappeared and murdered is now turning into anger, and the streets are burning with rage all over. (more…)

İstanbul: ‘ELF/Insurrectionary Solidarity Faction’ sabotaged a road roller for Nikos Romanos (Turkey)

Friday, December 5th, 2014

In the night of 1st of December, we broke down windows of a road roller and cut its cables in the Kocasinan district of Istanbul, with the intention to show our solidarity to anarchist prisoner Nikos Romanos, who is on hunger strike since 24 days and then to Yannis Michailidis, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, and Dimitris Politis who have started a hunger strike in support of Nikos Romanos in the Greek prisons.

Then we spray-painted some slogans on a wall close to the target: “Nikos Romanos” and “Fire to the prison cells“.

With this small action, we also salute the warriors who have fallen while not giving way to ISIS butchers, we salute rebels who refuse to stay as protestors, then fight
against cops and attack to the targets of repression and exploitation in Mexico, France, Ferguson and Santiago, we salute ALF-ELF cells who increase actions and attacks in Istanbul and around, we salute the insurrectionaries who got bored of being armchair revolutionaries, who got bored of insurrectional vaporings and Fetishism of Organisation and who got bored of losing their anarchic imagination in
the swamp of liberal opposition.

Until freedom of Nikos Romanos and all anarchist prisoners of war around the world…
Solidarity… Attack… İnsurrection…

Until Total Liberation…
Social War!
