After US President Trump’s statements, it appears as if the AKP-MHP regime has attained its desire to march into Northern Syria to the East of the Euphrates, for which it has been longing for over a year.
The AKP-MHP regime has been brought to a point from which it cannot escape any longer by the defeats in the local elections, the – for now “limited” – resistance of the workers against the economic crisis, the struggle of the Kurdish people against the appointed trustees, the women’s struggle against femicide and patriarchy, and the ecological struggle spanning from the Ida Mountains to Hasankeyf. To wriggle itself out of this quagmire the only choice at hand for the regime is “war”.
The regime seeks to overcome domestic impasses with the possible intervention, just as it did with earlier interventions as well. In this sense, the regime aims to liquidate the will of the peoples of the Middle East, first and foremost the will of the Kurdish people and it seeks to prolong the regions ill fate with this war. In this way, the AKP-MHP regime strengthens the imperialist structure and the rivaling imperialisms of the US and Russia, who seek to extend their hegemony by continuing war, while at the same time strengthening the imperialist structure by consolidating its base on the inside using Trump’s “threats”.
In addition to that, the AKP-MHP regime is called upon taking the responsibility of thousands of IS fighters, as expressed in the declaration of the White House. As should become clear from the way IS members responsible for the massacres in Suruç and Ankara among others have been treated in the process, the AKP-MHP regime seeks to drown the country together with the region in war.
In this sense, we call upon the revolutionary and democratic forces to come together, strengthen the solidarity among peoples and struggle against the AKP-MHP regime and the US and Russian imperialisms, who are throwing the country and the region at war respectively in order to protect their own interests.
THIS WAR IS NOT A WAR OF THE PEOPLES BUT OF THE PALACE!
NO TO THE WAR OF THE PALACE, YES TO THE SOLIDARITY AMONG PEOPLES AND TO PEACE!
