When the people rise up, they are unstoppable and capable of changing history. These events are repeated from time to time and call into question the normal development of the capitalist “common sense” that there is no alternative. Of course, there is! The action of the people in rebellion, who put their bodies into overthrowing authoritarian regimes, dictatorships or coups d'état, demonstrates the importance of popular power and revolutionary preparation in order for major social transformations to take place.

July 19: When the people rise up, they write history

Black storms agitate the air
Dark clouds impede our sight

When the people rise up, they are unstoppable and capable of changing history. These events are repeated from time to time and call into question the normal development of the capitalist “common sense” that there is no alternative. Of course, there is! The action of the people in rebellion, who put their bodies into overthrowing authoritarian regimes, dictatorships or coups d'état, demonstrates the importance of popular power and revolutionary preparation in order for major social transformations to take place.

July the 19th marks the anniversaries of the 1936 Spanish Revolution and the 2012 Rojava Revolution. Both processes indicate the tremendous capacity of peoples, although our tradition vindicates the 1936 Revolution as being driven by those people who professed the same ideas as we do.

What we must assume is that, in the times of greatest darkness, of greatest uncertainty, of the greatest affronts against the working people; those people are capable of the greatest feats, feats that no one was capable of dreaming of a few days prior. Our responsibility, as Organised Anarchism, is to concretise, give coherence to and articulate this peoples’ power so that it can lead to a Libertarian Social Revolution. We are not afraid of times of crisis, we are not afraid of ruins, because we believe in a future of mutual aid and we know that we will be able to build a future without capitalism and without the state.

Finally, we will be attentive to the events taking place on the 23rd of July, organised by organisations and parties of northeast Syria (AANES), as well as other initiatives of the support committees and Kurdish and democratic confederalist organisations. We call on our militants and supporters to participate.

Long live the 19th of July!
Long live the Social Revolution!
Long Live Organised Anarchism!

People power is so powerful in itself and very gratifying. The government should always be below the voice of the people.
