What happened until now
After Donald Trump has announced that the US troops will withdraw from Syria and Afghanistan, Erdoğan's war preparations intensified immediately. The long-planned war of aggression against Rojava will soon begin. The revolution in Rojava is thus approaching decisive hours, because this war will be about the future of fascism and the revolution. Fascist colonialism wants to destroy the status of the Kurdish nation with this war.
The first air attacks on the Kurdish cities of Makhmour and Shingal were followed by his statements on the attack to "the East of the Euphrates" within a few days. It is clear that the fascist boss is waiting for the most suitable conditions for the attack. Ultimately the national status of the Kurds are the target by a complete occupation of Rojava. These fascist colonization plans will not go smoothly because Erdoğan's occupation plans will encounter many political interests of different regional and imperialist states. The new colonial occupation war against Rojava is directed above all against the democratic, national longings of the Kurdish people, against the whole working class and the oppressed who want a free, just, honorable and humane life in Turkey and Northern Kurdistan.
But it is also directed against all people in the region and around the world who are fighting against fascism and oppression, who are defending internationalism, fighting for freedom of women and embracing the hope of a free world. Therefore, the resistance against the war of the fascist boss regime is not only a question of the peoples in northern Syria, but of all labouring people and oppressed, because it concerns all our freedom and liberation.


What internationalists can do
This resistance requires us to become a barricade against politic-islamist fascism. Equipped with the lessons of the occupation of Afrin and the insufficient preparation of its resistance, today Rojava mobilizes politically and militarily. We have to become part of the resistance all over the world and spark a spirit of mobilization. The working class and oppressed, the anti-fascist mass dynamics in Turkey are facing important challenges. They won't bow to police and prison terror, while the financial and economic crisis in the country is causing unemployment and poverty to heaven. The rising anger of the workers must lead to a determined will of fighting.
At the same time, progressive and revolutionary forces around the world have to confront the Erdoğan dictatorship and stand alongside the peoples, patriots, democrats and communists of Rojava. We do not fight under conditions we have chosen for ourselves, but which are given, so we have no choice but to learn and win. It is legitimate to use all means and forms of struggle. So what can internationalists do? Above all, spread and organize determined propaganda, silent vigils, mass protests, all forms of actions that channel the anger of the peoples outward. Creating stages in which intellectuals, artists, scientists, journalists, etc. speak out against the war of the palace. Preparing campaigns that focus on the defense of revolution in any manner. Organizing joint campaigns with different organizations, migrant organizations etc. Joining worldwide united, democratic fighting fronts to strengthen determined political attitudes, moreover form own units of action and mobilize all revolutionary, anti-fascist forces to street actions. Organizing different types of protests against representations of the Turkish state. Occupation of these representations. Targeting the bourgeois states for their cooperation with the fascist Turkish state, with the demand to end the cooperation immediately, especially the trade of arms. Collecting donations in every form for every means of struggle. Collecting also signatures to raise the consciousness of the masses and organize pressure of states and institutions. Mass activities express that we stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Rojava. Social media has to be used in the most effective and wide-spread way. Through this mean, also worldwide connection and coordination can be strengthened.
Women have to play a special role in the solidarity work, because women not only have to become a major part of the general political actions, but also a seperate will that defends the women's revolution in Rojava all over the world, because the achievements of women in Rojava belong to all women in the world and carry the women's freedom struggle forward.
Every solidarity of Arab peoples and their laboring-left parties has an important meaning, because against the separation attacks of the rulers, we unite!
Of course, the direct defence of the revolution by revolutionaries participating in the revolution is the most valuable form of sacrifice and revolutionary action. On the footsteps of the Internationalist Brigades in the Spanish Civil War, today we experience a historic period of new beginning internationalist revolutionary struggles.
Communists around the world have a responsibility to put this resistance at the forefront, to mobilize the most advanced sections of the masses, and to play a vanguard role. Weaponed with our proletarian internationalist spirit is and united actions we will be part of the resistance in Rojava and Northern Syria.
Rojava has strengthened the hope, morals and resistance spirit of revolutionaries worldwide. Now it is our turn to strengthen the resistance fronts in Rojava in any way.
