Abya Yala invites people everywhere to Global Action Day on 11 June against the war in Kurdistan
Abya Yala (Latin America) invited people everywhere to a Global Action Day on 11 June against the war in Kurdistan and in defense of the revolution.
Abya Yala (Latin America) called on people everywhere to a Global Action Day on 11 June against the war in Kurdistan and in defense of the revolution.
Abya Yala said in a statement that “in the current reconfiguration of the geopolitical global order, international powers and most countries have denounced the war that Russia unleashed in Ukraine. However, they have said nothing about Turkey's bombings and occupation campaign in Kurdistan. This double standard applied to the attacking forces and the directionality of the focus of attention towards a single scenario, reveal an intertwining of interests and disputes for hegemony that goes against the peoples and that we cannot endorse with our silence.”
Activists from Bolivia, Chiapas and Ecuador called on everyone to join the Global Action.
Since 14 April 2022, the Turkish government has been carrying out a military campaign against areas of Bashur (Iraqi Kurdistan), with the main objective of hitting the forces of the Kurdish Liberation Movement (PKK) and, at the same time, deepening its plan to occupy Kurdish territories and annex them to the current Republic of Turkey.
Abya Yala said: "For these reasons, we call on people in solidarity with the Kurdish people to demonstrate wherever they are, in accordance with their own time zones and their own chosen modalities, on June 11, 2022, to repudiate the imperial and repressive policy of the Turkish State."
Abya Yala added: "We also call to defend the revolutionary process initiated in Kurdistan, whose paradigm is based on the liberation of women, direct democracy and ecological life, as expressions of a free society.”
A social Revolution in all areas of life, which aspires to eradicate the patriarchal, capitalist and colonial mentality of societies, and which has become an inspiration for movements around the world that fight for liberation and for the right to self-determination of the peoples."
