Turkish army is on another mission of slaughter in Kurdistan. After the changes in the military top, Turkish regime adopted a new strategy of fighting against Kurdish people and its movement. Economic crisis and imperialist war against people of the world allowed all regimes of the Imperialist Internationale to wage wars of limited character in order to solve their internal issues without condemnation of the worldwide community.
“Chemical” Nejet Ozel is the new commander of the Turkish army, who “earned” his nickname after just a couple of days of military operations, which fits the nature of this filthy war just right.
It’s obvious that the main goal of Turkish army is not only retaliation and attempt of destruction of PKK as the representative political and military force of Kurdish people, but also to control the mass uprising of the Kurdish people who demand their rights of self-determination and national rights.
In the same time, it is the beginning of the new sense of Turkish militarization, which serves not only surpression of national movements, but also regional imperialst interests of the Turkish regime – which are directly connected to the interests of western imperialists in the region (situation in Syria, relationship between western imperialism and Iran etc…)
The new strategy of the Turkish army consists of use of chemical weapons and attacking the villages, which forces the peasants into leaving their homes and cuts the link between people and Kurdish military movement. Military actions in Southern Kurdistan are performed with backing of US army, helped by the puppet regime in Iraq and with collaboration of Iranian army. The numbers of dead civilians and Kurdish fighters are growing every day.
But, this war only strengthens the Kurdish people, and words of solidarity come from all over Turkey, Europe and other parts of the world. The youth of Southern Kurdistan is forming live shields in order to stop the attacks of the Turkish army, and plans for the marches up the mountains where the battles are fought are in preparation. Although Turkish police and army are trying to prevent the rise of peace movements in Kurdistan, “Mothers for Peace” will join the youth and form live shields all over borders with Iraq. Political importance of having peace movements in this moment is crucial, since Turkish regime can use the situation and commit even greater atrocities against Kurdish people.
Solidarity with Kurdish people in their struggle for self-determination!
Down with colonial fascist dictatorship of Turkish state!
