PKK: Comrade Helmet’s goals will be fulfilled
PKK: This vile massacre will be held to account, our valiant martyrs will be avenged, the martyr of the Democratic Middle East and Free Kurdistan against isolation and fascism Comrade Helmet’s goals will be fulfilled.
Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) Executive Committee issued a statement on Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK) General Presidential Council Member Diyar Xerib and militants Sahin and Dewran who were martyred in a Turkish state airstrike on July 5.
The statement said: “We warn the forces in question one more time, and we issue a call: Stop supporting the inhumane regime that exploits the peoples of Turkey under fascist terror and torture as they commit genocide against the Kurdish people! Do not be a partner to the genocide against the Kurdish people.”
PKK Executive Committee’s written statement is as follows: “The fascist-genocidal Turkish state and their collaborators-agents have carried out a deliberate and planned attack against Qandil in Medya Defense Zones. We remember with great respect, love and gratitude the courageous son of Southern Kurdistan, great revolutionary and patriot, PKK Central Committee and KCK General Presidential Council Member Martyr Comrade Helmet (Diyar Xerib Muhammed), and esteemed militants of our party martyrs Comrade Sahin and Comrade Dewran, vilely massacred in the attack. We state that this vile attack will be responded to in kind, our valiant martyrs will be avenged, and martyred Comrade Helmet’s goals as a leading martyr of the struggle for a Democratic Middle East and Free Kurdistan against isolation and fascism will be fulfilled.
AVENGING THE ISTANBUL DEFEAT WITH SUCH ATTACKS
Undoubtedly this vile massacre is not separate from the latest developments and the fascist, colonialist and genocidal attacks that have been rising. It is clear that the fascist Erdogan-Bahceli dictatorship wishes to avenge the Istanbul defeat, and the heavy blows they suffered by the guerrilla from Xakurke to Haftanin, with such deliberate and planned attacks to uphold their fascist genocidal government through terrorism, oppression, torture and massacres. The fascist genocidal attacks are clearly being supported by global forces like the US, EU and Russia and nurtured by the collaborating traitors. It is clearly seen that whenever our peoples put the fascist genocidal Turkish administration in a corner, these powers rush to their aid, supporting fascist attacks or attacking our freedom movement in an attempt to keep the Turkish state fascism standing. As such, these powers share responsibility in the everyday oppression and massacres, the genocide in Turkey and Bakure, Bashure and Rojhilate Kurdistan by the AKP-MHP fascist government. We warn the forces in question one more time, and we issue a call: Stop supporting the inhumane regime that exploits the peoples of Turkey under fascist terror and torture as they commit genocide against the Kurdish people! Do not be a partner to the genocide against the Kurdish people. We also call upon the fascist-genocidal murderers and their agents: However many fascist attacks you carry out, however much you oppress the Kurdish people and the peoples of Turkey, however much you implement terrorism and massacres, you won’t be able to uphold the fascist-genocidal dictatorship or prolong its life. Nothing will save you. On the contrary, you will drown in the blood you spilled. The peoples of Turkey and the Kurdish people will hold you to account for these massacres. The people of Southern Kurdistan have taken the Saddam regime down, and they will grow their awareness further to kick Turkish state fascism and their servants out of their lands.
GREAT CONTRIBUTIONS TO SOUTHERN KURDISTAN’S DEMOCRATIZATION
Our patriotic people and all revolutionary forces should know that Comrade Helmet joined the freedom struggle at a young age and gave 25 years of his life to the struggle for the Kurdish people’s freedom and the fraternity of the Middle Eastern peoples. He trained with Leader Abdullah Ocalan, he took on every task available from a fighter to the PKK Central Committee and KCK General Presidential Council member. He was a valiant revolutionary militant and a deeply patriotic man. He had great contributions to Southern Kurdistan’s struggle for democratization where he worked for a long time. He worked hard for education for all sections of Southern Kurdistani society, starting with the youth and women, and for raising awareness in the line of Apoist patriotism and for their organization. He took part in the guerrilla resistance for a long time against fascist Turkish state invasionism and colonialism. He worked hard to unite all Kurds and Kurdish politics in the Kurdistan National Congress. In doing all these he became a revolutionary beloved by all our people in all four parts of Kurdistan and abroad.
In this sense, it is certain that the attack in question was a deliberate, planned and organized one. The fascist and genocidal Turkish forces see red, but it is also clear that they received support from agents and informants who sell their souls for a bowl of soup. As a movement and a people, we know most of them. We will hold all murderers to account for these massacres. We are calling on all who call themselves Kurdish patriots or revolutionary-democrats to take on duty. The memory of Comrade Helmet should become a vow for vengeance and for freedom.
WE MUST UPHOLD COMRADE HELMET’S MEMORY STRONGLY
We are calling on the people of Southern Kurdistand and all our people in four parts of Kurdistan and abroad, the youth, women and the working classes, all revolutionary-democratic forces and all who call themselves Kurdish patriots as well as all Kurdish political forces to stand against the fascist-genocidal Turkish state aggressions, invasions and massacres, to uphold the memory of great patriot and revolutionary Comrade Helmet and to raise the struggle for peace and democracy, to develop the struggle for a Democratic Middle East and Free Kurdistan that aims to have Leader Abdullah Ocalan living and working free, as opposed to his life sentence now, and to hold strong memorials and mass democratic demonstrations for Comrade Helmet and all our martyrs.”
