The civil war in Syria has brought new elements to the situation of the Kurdish region. Inspired by various popular traditions of resistance, a significant sector of Kurds participate in an experience that should be looked at carefully by all revolutionary sectors.


The Kurds have a long history of uprisings against the oppression carried out by various nation-states. So-called Kurdistan is not a nation state, but a territory that spans parts of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Armenia and Azerbaijan, where approximately 26 million people live. The civil war in Syria facilitated the emergence of the extreme right-wing group, the Islamic State (ISIS), which aims, initially, to build a caliphate in the regions of Iraq and Syria. The big problem is that ISIS is advancing over large territories with the perspective of building an extreme right-wing Islamic state that would have dire consequences for the future of the working class (and especially women) throughout the region. The imperialism led by NATO (which is largely part of the problem) conducts its "theatre" of war, waiting for ISIS to massacre the Kurdish popular resistance in Kobane, probably in order to make an intervention at the most opportune time and to impose their puppet governments immediately with the defeat of the role of the Kurdish people.

At this very moment, popular and revolutionary sectors are fighting with scarce resources in areas liberated from the Islamic State, which include popular assemblies, councils (with ethnic balance) and the formation of a women's armed wing (linked to the PKK), the YPJ. In this time of crisis our solidarity should be a class solidarity that goes beyond the political boundaries of nation-states and the divisions within the working class. The Kurdish popular struggle will largely decide the fate of that region, against the fascist extreme right of ISIS, the planned omission of the UN and the imperialism of NATO. This is why we must actively support the Kurdish popular struggle!

All support for the Kurdish popular resistance! Kobane will win!
