Statement of ICOR against attack on Rojava by Turkey with imperialist support! Hands off Rojava!

14 October 2019


International condemnation of Turkey's war of aggression in violation of international law!

Currently Erdogan has started his war of aggression against Rojava/Northeast Syria with his fascist state and army in violation of international law:

Participate in the international day of solidarity tomorrow, day X, 10 October as international day of solidarity
and in the worldwide protests on 12 October 2019!

The imperialist plans must not work out!

Regarding Rojava the ICOR resolution of January 2019 states: “The democratic construction in Rojava/Northern Syria stands for the successful fight against the IS/Daesh, for democracy and freedom, women’s rights, environmental protection, respect for all ethnic groups and religions. (...) The international solidarity in turn stands for unswerving solidarity and inclusion of the Kurdish liberation struggle in the worldwide struggle against imperialism.”
Erdogan is planning an ethnic cleansing and the destruction of the lived struggle for freedom and democracy, women's liberation and ecological life and its close connection with the international liberation struggle for national and social liberation.

The present attack also means the threat of a direct confrontation of several imperialist forces from which a military conflict with worldwide impact can develop.

The Self-Defense Forces of the QSD (Democratic Forces of Syria) are absolutely determined to defend Rojava. International solidarity is needed – it was already once an essential part of the success in the liberation of Kobanê.

No liberation struggle may stand alone and isolated! Right from the beginning the ICOR has stood by the side of the liberation struggle in Rojava. It has mobilized for worldwide days of solidarity and organized practical solidarity work by building the “ICOR clinic” in Kobanê.

The struggle for freedom and democracy must be led against all imperialists as an anti-imperialist struggle. In order to eliminate imperialism and its wars of aggression, a liberated democratic and socialist world has to be achieved by struggle.

Hands off Rojava!

For the right of self-determination and the international recognition of the democratic self-administration of Northeast Syria!

International condemnation of Turkey's war of aggression!

For freedom, democracy and socialism!

The Communist movement in India has a history of almost a century after the salvos of October Revolution in Russia brought Marxism-Leninism to the people of India who were engaged in the national liberation struggle against the British colonialists. It is a complex and chequered history.
