“The Rojava Revolution is a milestone in the history of the Middle Eastern peoples,” said KONGRA-GEL and stated that the peoples of North-East Syria under the leadership of women have brought forward the revolution of history against ISIS on the basis of Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan’s “Democratic Society” paradigm.
“A huge price has been paid to save the entire humanity from a great disaster,” the statement said and added, “Without doubt, there are challenges and enemies of this revolution both inside and outside, yet we know that the greatest enemy of the revolution is the Turkish state.”
Referring to the occupation and ethnic cleansing in Afrin, Gire Spi (Tal Abyad) and Serekaniye (Ras al-Ain), KONGRA-GEL further denounced efforts to subdue the peoples of North-East Syria through an economic embargo and noted that the UN also acts in accordance with this siege and deprives Rojava of the aids it provides.
“A common resistance against Turkey and destruction of the fascist order will open the door to freedom and democracy for the peoples of Kurdistan in all four parts. There is no other solution,” said the statement, which concluded as follows:
“We salute our people in Rojava over their attitude that stands against Turkish occupation and reclaims Leader Öcalan, hoping that this attitude will be maintained. People in four parts of Kurdistan, together with their friends in and outside of the country, should enhance their struggle against Turkish occupation. The goal is to defeat the Turkish state fascism.
On this basis, we celebrate the Revolution of Rojava and North-East Syria with all our heart and wish our people success.”
