06.08.18 / Turkish Economy in Trouble

Today, Turkish Lira continued losing value. 1 US dollar becomes 5.19 Turkish Lira while 1 Euro becomes almost 6 Turkish Lira. The structural crisis of the Turkish economy starts to take action more everyday.

Because its economy is dependent on imports and foreign debt ratio is high, Turkey, implementing the financial-economic program of the imperialism during the last 15 years, has become one of the countries where the crisis of capitalism is most harshly felt. Sovereigns tried to get out of this crisis by taking advantage of the friction between the imperialist blocs.
Turkey's "presence" in the Middle East was the most appropriate trump for this. But that was not enough either. Turkey tried reactionary interventions to the "independence" of the Central Bank, which meant that the Central Bank must act according to the interests of the oligarchy of the financial capital in order to protect its own block of capital.
At this point where not recognizing the embargoes, intending to buy the S-400s from Russia, going against the institutions of the global capital, Turkey has suffered the wrath of the US and still is. Capital exodus from Turkey can not be stopped. So does this mean that Turkey is giving an anti-imperialist struggle? Of course not.
What is happening is the struggle to gain position and to prove some strength in the imperialist exploitation order. Those who design the whole system according to the international monopoly and the oligarchy of financial capital can not be anti-imperialist without anti-capitalism. There is no such intention anyway.
There can be no deduction from this struggle for the working class. There has been nothing but debt, job murder, insecurity, unemployment and disorganization from the 15-year happy marriage of the global and local sovereigns. Today, there is no good for us to take one of the sides in their fight.

04.08.18 / Eastern Countryside of Deir ez-Zor fully cleared of ISIS

Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) fighters advancing on three fronts in the Operation Cizire Storm have merged in the village of Bogaz earlier today. SDF fighters have thus cleared the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor and established security at Iraq-Syria border.
The second phase of the Operation Cizire Storm was launched by SDF on June 4 with the ultimate goal of liberating Deir ez-Zor and Heseke countryside from ISIS.

SDF commander Bahoz Heseke stated that they have reached the Baghous town after Dashisha, thus securing the Iraq-Syria border and have fully liberated the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor.

Heseke remarked that SDF forces was in a good morale over the advance they have made, stressing that their struggle against the gangs will continue.

As part of the campaign, SDF forces advancing on three fronts have liberated an area of 120 km2 in the outskirts of Deir ez-Zor.


03.08.18 / Hail to the United Resistance to Stop the 73. Genocide of Yazidi!

 We respectfully commemorate our hundreds of people who have been murdered and all the warriors martyred while trying to prevent the massacres, in the 4 th year of the Kurdish people being exposed to the genocidal attacks of barbarian ISIS gangs.
In Shengal, our Yazidi people, on August 3, 2014, were subjected to massacre attacks by AKP -supported ISIS gangs, and hundreds of people were killed during these attacks. Thousands of Yazidi, most of which were women, taken prisoner. Treacherous KDP administration stayed in the audience to this massacre and its peshmergas in Sengal fled and voided the area, leaving it vulnerable. Tens of thousands of Yazidis had to leave their houses, their land.
The ISIS gangs, taking the support of the AKP and the reactionary regional states, aimed to totally abolish the Yazidi society and to commit genocide. They publicly declared this with religious references. If it had not been the HPG guerrillas who handed up the help of poor Yazidi people in the last minute and the YPG-YPJ and MLKP forces, who pulled out the people to the safe areas by opening the corridor from Rojava, then repelled the gangs, it would be such an easy accomplish for the gangs. After the massacre of the Yazidi, the Shengal and its environs would be completely occupied, and the Rojava revolution would have been taken to the full siege. The United revolutionary resistance and struggle have wasted those plans.
While the capitalist-imperialist world states were just watching the massacre of Yazidi, the revolutionaries took their side with an enduring struggle. As a result of a challenging struggle, with hundreds of martyrs and wounded, and the resistance of the armed Yazidian laborers, the ISIS gangs were defeated. Our Yazidi people survived a new edict. While this salvation was met with happiness in the world laborers, the whims of the fascist Tayyip Erdogan and the gangs were sticked in their gizzard. Dictator Erdogan, who is hostile to all beliefs outside of Sunni Islam, showed that he could not tolerate the defeat of the gangs he supported, and showed this by bombing Shengal with airplanes after it was liberated. He tried to do what he could not do with his gang. By collaborating with regional reactionaries and the KDP, he directed to liquidate Yazidi's free consciousness and institutionalizations that emerged with resistance.
Immediately after the occupation, our Yazidi people, who founded the resistance units, did not fight this struggle solely against the ISIS gangs. At the same time, this resistance was against the line of betrayer and collaborator KDP. The main responsibility of the spread of Shengal's salvation over the years is on the KDP. While it was entirely possible to liberate Shengal with a unified move, the KDP had not been willing to evaluate this opportunity for months. It demanded that the forces of the HPG-YJA STAR, YPG-YPJ and MLKP, the saviors of the Yazidi people, be got out from the area, and that YBŞ, Shengal's self-defense force, be dismantled. It resorted to all kinds of conspiracy and provocation for this.
The KDP administration, which has made the PKK 's existence a crisis for years, escaped again from Shengal and its surroundings after Mosul was taken from the gangs. This time, it left the sacred lands for Yazidis to the reactionary Hasdi Shahbi forces. The KDP and Barzani administration once again revealed that their main problem was with the PKK, the forerunner of free Kurdish consciousness. They showed this embarrassing fact when they were leaving Kirkuk and its surroundings to the same forces. Once and over again, those who had been a bully against the patriots who had worked democratically in Hewler and Makhmur, had escaped without even looking back when seeing Hasdi Shahbi.
This fact should not kept in mind. Our Yazidi people should not forget the betrayal of the KDP, who had left them to the ISIS massacres and then to the forces of Hasdi Shahbi. Forgetting is opening doors to new massacres. Our Yazidi people, through succeeding in protecting their freedom, which was wonby hundreds of martyrs, and the self-defense forces, which is the assurance of this, can prevent both new massacres and self-governance, revealing that all these sufferings are not in vain.
The way for our Yazidi people to walk must be the resistance of the martyrs, the Berkşan's, the Shengal's and the Berivan's.
We salute the victory of the United Revolutionary struggle and our martyrs immortalized for this purpose. With the Shengal massacre, we share the sufferings of our Yazidi people. We urge our Yazidi people to organize and improve their self-governance, to close ranks tightly around the YBŞ, to increase resistance to massacres and betrayal. We believe that the poor but honorable people of Êzidxan will put forth a worthy practice.

 

Long live Our Shengal Struggle!

Long live the Struggle for Honor and Freedom of the Oppressed Peoples!

Şehid Namirin!

26.07.18 / OHAL Not Removed But Made Permanent

 The law proposal, including post-OHAL regulations, was accepted in the TBMM General Assembly. The OHAL officially stood on July 18th; but with the law enforced in parliament, the OHAL authorities will continue to be used by governors and ministries for 3 years.

Accordingly, the governors may prohibit the entry and exit of persons suspected of being suspicious in the course of 15 days. Again, at certain places or hours, the governors will be able to prohibit the movement of and gatherig of people, restrain or restrict the navigation of vehicles, all types of weapons and ammunition, even though they are registered.

While the constitutional amendment and the no-confidence motion on the ministers are abolished, an investigation may be launched only with the order brought by the ministers and the presidents' assistants, with the permission of the president.

The custodial time of 24 hours was changed to 48 hours and the crimes committed collectively were set as 4 days. If it is deemed necessary to extend it twice, the probation period of 48 hours of detention can be extended to 6 days, and for collective crimes it can be extended to 12 days.

This regulation, which was introduced after the OHAL process in which 140 thousands of people were dismissed from the public jobs, opened up the continuation of dismissals. Those who have been dismissed from higher education institutions, such as those who are not able to return to their former institutions, or those who have been publicly released with the decision of the commission, as well as those who have been issued with the newly introduced law by law, will not be assigned to their former duties. Even if soldiers and cops are taken back after they are exported from the country, they will not be assigned to key posts, they will be located in research centers.

With the administrative decisions as in the OHAL process, the issuance was continued for three years, and the dismissed persons were also deprived of social rights other than their jobs.

With all these arrangements, OHAL has been made permanent.

During the first session of the Assembly, Ahmad Şık, one of the HDP 's representatives, was attacked by the AKP MPs. This attack will be an example how the parliament must involve in social struggle other than resistance.
