The call

The call reads: "While the people of Rojava and Northeast Syria continue their struggle for self-determination, women’s liberation and grassroots democracy and defend themselves against the attacks of jihadist gangs and the fascist Turkish state, the representatives of hypocritical governments shake hands with the Turkish despots.

While hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced from Afrin by jihadist gangs backed by the Turkish army, these jihadists and their families are settling and exploiting the resources of the people. They are selling the symbol of Afrin itself, olive oil from olive trees, through Turkey to Spain and other European countries. This is what the Turkish state means when it claims to be securing its border: ethnic cleansing and jihadist gangs attacking the local people.

While Ankara is forging liquidation plans against the revolution of Kurdistan and Syria, the European, Russian and US arms industries are increasing their profits day by day. This is a direct result of the war in the Middle East and all over the world. We not forget the suffering of the people in Yemen, Palestine and other war theatres. Profits are made that cost millions of lives."
