Turkish anarchists in Syria to support Kurdish people

Istanbul anarchists along other leftists, feminists, and 'Gezi park types' have managed to cross over into Syria and the northern town of Kobane which is currently threatened by ISIS. [italiano]

Vice reported yesterday that ISIS is within 5 miles of the city and are attacking with US military equipment including tanks that outmatches the weapons available to the YPG - Kurdish People's Protection Units. Vice also reported that "Hundreds of Turkish Kurds are arriving too, sneaking or bribing their way across the border to fight alongside the YPG".

The photo shows a banner of the anarchist group DAF apparently just after the border has been crossed. The statement we were sent says "People are suffering from hunger and thirst, getting ill, getting injured; migrating and dying. They are still fighting in that struggle for existence. People are fighting not for the schemes and strategies around meeting tables, not for income, but for their freedom".

We hope to bring more details and further photos as they become available.

This is a translation from our sister group in France, Alternative libertaire:

"Thousands of young people, socialists, trade unionists, revolutionary, feminist, libertarian poured in from all over Turkey to Kobanê. They and they go there to support and defend the city réfugié.es.

The Turkish army tries to disperse them, as she is accused of being much more permissive with the jihadists who are trying, too, to cross the border to join Daech.

Despite the dams of the Turkish army, hundreds of activists and militants have managed to cross the border. Among them, the comrades of the Revolutionary Anarchist Action [DAF] group, who made the trip to Istanbul to join the defense of Kobanê, and sent these photos."

For several days at the Syrian-Turkish border, the city of Kobanê is besieged by forces of the Islamic State (Daesh). Kobanê is a strategic turning point. If the city falls, the whole of Syrian Kurdistan is threatened, and with it a political and social model, that of "democratic autonomy" and "democratic confederalism" built since July 2012.

More than 100,000 inhabitants and residents have become refugees on Turkish territory.

The city is defended by the People’s Protection Units (YPG), militias linked to the PKK, and in which alongside the majority of Kurdish fighters, are also Arabs, Turks, Muslims, Yazidis, Christians or atheists, united against the fanatics of Daesh.

Thousands of young people, socialists, trade unionists, revolutionaries, feminists, libertarians have poured in from all over Turkey to Kobanê. They go there to support the refugees and defend the city.

The Turkish army tries to disperse them, yet is accused of being much more permissive with the jihadists who are also trying to cross the border to join Daesh.

Despite the blockades of the Turkish army, hundreds of activists and militants have managed to cross the border. Among them, the comrades of the Revolutionary Anarchist Action Group, who made the trip to Istanbul to join the defense of Kobanê, and sent these photos.

Kobanê has become a flashpoint where two worlds confront each other: the progressive, secular and revolutionary forces on one side, and the religious fanatics on the other.

The references to "a political and social model, that of "democratic autonomy" and "democratic confederalism" built since July 2012" are in relation to the claimed change in organisational methods of the PKK, under the influence of US anarchist Murray Bookchin's writings on Libertarian Municipalism. We've (WSM) not had any real chance to evaluate these claims but there was some discussion of them at our recent Dublin branch meeting, recording below

Foto - miembros del grupo anarquista Estambul DAF después de cruzar a Siria para tomar parte en la defensa de Kobane contra Isis / Daesh.

El viernes replantadas que "anarquistas Estambul a lo largo de otros izquierdistas, feministas y 'Gezi tipos Park' han logrado cruzar a Siria y la ciudad norteña de Kobane que actualmente está amenazado por ISIS." A continuación se muestra un informe más detallado traducida de Alternative Libertaire, un miembro de la hermana de la red Anarkismo.net.

Desde hace varios días en la frontera sirio-turca, la ciudad de Kobanê es asediada por las fuerzas del Estado Islámico (Daesh). Kobanê es un punto de inflexión estratégica. Si la ciudad cae, el conjunto de Siria Kurdistán se ve amenazada, y con ella un modelo político y social, el de la "autonomía democrática" y "confederalismo democrático" construido desde julio de 2012.

Más de 100.000 habitantes y residentes se han convertido en refugiados en territorio turco.

La ciudad es defendida por las Unidades de Protección Popular (YPG), milicias vinculadas con el PKK, y en el que junto a la mayoría de los combatientes kurdos, también son árabes, turcos, musulmanes, yazidis, cristianos o ateos, unidos contra los fanáticos de Daesh.

Miles de jóvenes, socialistas, sindicalistas, revolucionarios, las feministas, los libertarios han vertido desde todas partes de Turquía a Kobanê. Ellos van allí para apoyar a los refugiados y de defender la ciudad.
El ejército turco intenta dispersarlos, pero es acusado de ser mucho más permisivos con los yihadistas que también están tratando de cruzar la frontera para unirse a Daesh.

A pesar de los bloqueos del ejército turco, cientos de activistas y militantes han logrado cruzar la frontera. Entre ellos, los compañeros del Grupo Anarquista Acción Revolucionaria, que hizo el viaje a Estambul para unirse a la defensa de Kobanê, y envió estas fotos.

Kobanê ha convertido en un punto donde dos mundos se enfrentan entre sí: las fuerzas progresistas, laicas y revolucionarias, por un lado, y los fanáticos religiosos, por el otro.

No hemos tenido ninguna oportunidad real para evaluar estas afirmaciones, pero había un poco de discusión de los mismos en nuestra reciente reunión de la rama de Dublín, la grabación más adelante
