Fackelzug türkischer Anarchisten für Kobane und Sengal

28. Dezember 2014


Den 103. Tag des Widerstands von Kobane gegen die Islamistischen-Faschisten des IS, unterstützt vom türkischen Staat, sowie den Sieg über den IS bei Sengal begingen Anarchisten in der Türkei mit einem Fackelzug. Die nächtliche Demonstration führte von der kleinen Gemeinde Mahser zum Dorf Miseynter. Die Demonstranten grüßten den Widerstand in Kobane. In einer Erklärung ließen sie verlautbaren: „Das Feuer der Rebellion wird den Staat zerschlagen.“

An dieser Stelle verweisen wir einmal mehr auf die Kampagne „Waffen für Rojava“. Solidarität muss praktisch werden.

  1. Resources on the Rojava revolution in West Kurdistan (Syria) by AndrewNFlood, Fri, 01/02/2015 permalink

    The heroic defence of Kobane against Isis brought the attention of many of us to the experiment in Democratic Autonomy said to be running in the region and in a North Kurdistan (Turkey). It’s a controversal topic not least because its ideological roots are in the change in strategy Abdullah Öcalan, the leader of the PKK, started to promote from his Turkish prison cell leading to significant changes in from the mid 2000s as new structures were created (and a wave of state repression directed at those structures which have seen over 8000 imprisoned). The goal was to be the development of „democratic, ecological, gender liberated society“ in the shell of the existing society through co-operation between a political party taking power in elections (the BDP) and a parallel system of neighboorhood councils which would be really making the decisions. All this as part of an overall body called the Democratic Society Congress bringing together political parties, councils and civil society.

    Two minute video introduction to what is revolutionary

    Prior to this transformation the PKK had a deserved reputation as a militarist authoritarian Maxist – Leninist outfit even willing to assassinate political rivals & critics on the left. Could it really be that this organisation has ‚changed its spots‘ to the soft quasi social democration anarchism developed by the US writer Murray Bookchin.

    Comrades I’ve talked to about this from the Turkish state have had widely differenct perspective. Some think its simply a cynical exercise to garner western support. Others insist the changes in ideology have subsubstance but more important that the revolution in Rojave at least is real. And some, perhaps the wiser, take a middle ground and say that trusting the PKK leadership would be foolish but it would be more foolish again to ignore the space that has opened up on the ground.

    Mass arrests and repression impose obvious limits on this experiement in the Kurdish area of the Turkish state but events in Syria allowed the possibility of a much fuller experiment. Geography, ethnic makeup and other reasons meant that the 3 Kurdish cantons of Northern Syria, collectively termed Rojava saw little fighting initally. So from 2011 a constructive project could begin, one that could continue until the moment ISIS found itself with large supplies of heavy weapons and armour captured at Mosul after the Iraqi army fled. This enabled them to rapidly over run the YPG / YPJ defence forces that had previously failed to acheive a significant breakthrough with the result that in the central canton around Kobane they overran all but Kobane itself very rapidly indeed.

    The Kurdish Anarchist Zaher Baher who has visited Rojava and strongly believes that the revolution is real nevertheless warns „It is very unfortunate that I found many ideologists among the PYD and Tev-Dem members, especially when it came to discussions about Abdullah Öcalan’s ideas. These people are very stuck with Öcalan’s principles, making them refer to his speeches and books in our discussions. They have total faith in him and, to a certain extent, he is sacred. If this is the faith that people have and put in their leader and are scared of him, it is very frightening and the consequences will not be good. For me, nothing should be sacred and everything can be criticized and rejected if they need to be. “

    In any case my intention here is…
