Shena Kalo: ‘Kurdish language banned. Growing Genocide in occupied and Turkified Afrin’- condoned by NATO, US, EU and Russia

If Russia or China did this there’d be a World War already. But Turkey is in NATO and buys a lot of Armaments. So the US shuts up, the UN shuts up and the western media, the right and the left, don’t even want to know.

Erdogan has already taken over Afrin, Al Bab, Azaz, Jarablus and much of Idlib and has openly boasted he will conquer all lands once held by the Ottoman Empire … At home he has gained near total dictatorial control, /destroyed Kurdish areas killing thousands and ordered the imprisonment of hundreds of thousands of people on suspicion.

A Western ally has invaded and occupied its neighbor 3 times, illegally expelling the Kurdish population from their homes, lands, and businesses, to internal refugee camps and settling instead Arab Al Qaeda and ex ISIS mercenaries, who survive by meager Turkish salaries, looting, kidnapping and rape.

Shena Kalo, spokesperson for the Education Committee of the Democratic Society in Shehba,

Turkey has banned the local Kurdish language and changed all institutions and money into Turkish. Bulldozing local monuments: schools, parks, industry, cemeteries… while declaring itself proudly to be racially cleansing and resurrecting a cruel Empire dead for 100 years.

All this is being done in your name with your passive permission. Even leftist Marxist parties ignore Turkish and Syrian State genocidal policies and betray the Kurdish social revolution.

Kurdish language banned in occupied and Turkified Afrin

The ban on the Kurdish language has been the latest step in a long series of attempts to change Afrin’s demographics. The Kurdish names of streets, avenues and settlements have been changed, and the local population is forced to learn Turkish.

New steps have been introduced to change the demographics of the canton of Afrin in northern and eastern Syria, which has been occupied by Turkey and allied mercenary groups since a major military attack in 2018.

Extensive attacks have been launched against the Kurdish population since the first day of the occupation in Afrin, where traces of the Kurds have since been erased. Murders, extortion, looting, destruction, kidnapping, human trafficking and massacres are rampant in an attempt to de-Kurd the region.

The last step as part of the de-Kurdification policies has been directed at the Kurdish language itself. Kurdish education has been removed from the curriculum in schools.

The US gave permission for Turkey to use its joint airbase to bomb the Afrin area of Syria in its imperialist invasion and occupation, committing mass murder of children in your name, while Russia gave permission to use the airspace it controls.

Following the attacks on the city, most of the local population had to migrate to the neighboring canton of Shehba. Speaking to Mezopotamya Agence (MA), Shena Kalo, spokesperson for the Education Committee of the Democratic Society in Shehba, recalled that the people of Afrin have been massacred and displaced from their homeland after their lands were occupied.

Saying that rape, torture and violence have become a daily routine in Afrin, Kalo claimed that Turkey is hostile to the Kurds and attacks them wherever they reside. She stressed that this is the basic policy pursued linguistically, culturally and geographically, and Afrin has been destroyed by looting and destruction.

Kalo emphasized that they have made important progress with the Rojava Revolution, and that education in the mother tongue is the most important among them. She noted that they established their educational systems and opened schools to offer this service.

“Policy of looting and destruction”

“The children of our town rushed to these schools. In the past, the Syrian state always banned our language. Baathist state officials were trying to Arabize us. However, we got over it thanks to the revolution. We embraced its accomplishments.

We opened schools in hamlets, villages and districts under the direction of thousands of teachers. We established not only education, but also all other parts of our system, which was confronted by the Turkish state this time.

They introduced a policy of looting and destruction wherever the Kurds made a profit. They attacked Afrin with, artillery and fighter jets, ”she denounced. (German made tanks and US made jets from their Incirlik base).

Kurdish language ban

Kalo said that Turkey’s first goal after occupying Afrin was education: “They said they would provide education in Arabic, Kurdish and Turkish. That was a lie. Kurdish was banned from Afrin in no time. They only taught in Turkish and Arabic. They are trying to impose Turkish on our people who remain in Afrin.

The Kurdish names of streets, neighborhoods, streets, towns and settlements in Afrin have been replaced. Therefore, they started assimilation programs. They force the local population to learn Turkish. ‘

Emphasizing that Turkey launched these attacks with the support of international powers, Kalo continued: “Schools were their first target when they started attacking Afrin. They bombed and destroyed them. Language is the identity of a people.

An attack on the language is an attack on the people. So they approached us. If the language of a people is forbidden or faces extinction, it is not possible to speak of the existence of that people ”.

“Turkification in Afrin”

Kalo stated that this plan has a broad framework: “Those who return to Afrin are arrested and interrogated. They are tortured and wanted to be lined up. The invaders demand ransom to free the detainees. People are forced to learn Turkish. They say, ‘If you don’t learn or read Turkish, you will have to leave Afrin.’

They are planning to make Afrin a place of their own through demographic change. The Kurdish identity of this region is gradually being destroyed and a Turkification policy is being implemented. ‘

Kalo added that they established their own education system in Shehba, where they had to move after the invasion attacks in Afrin.

“We educate children in their mother tongue. When they realized this, they turned to propaganda and said they would start giving Kurdish lessons. They are trying to implement this new policy through ENKS, which supports them.

Based on this plan, they are using our people there as a tool for the schemes of the Turkish state. Therefore, our people must be careful not to be fooled by such schemes. We must thwart the plans of the Turkish state, ” she concluded.

Prohiben el idioma kurdo en Afrin ocupado y turquificado

La prohibición del idioma kurdo ha sido el último paso en una larga serie de intentos por cambiar la demografía de Afrin. Se han cambiado los nombres kurdos de las calles, avenidas y asentamientos, y la población local se ve obligada a aprender turco.

Se han introducido nuevos pasos para cambiar la demografía del cantón de Afrin en el norte y este de Siria, que ha sido ocupado por Turquía y grupos de mercenarios aliados desde un importante ataque militar en 2018. Se lanzaron extensas agresiones contra la población kurda desde el primer día de la ocupación en Afrin, donde los rastros de los kurdos han sido borrados desde entonces. 

Los asesinatos, extorsión, saqueo, destrucción, secuestro, tráfico de personas y masacres son desenfrenados en un intento de des-kurdificar la región.

El último paso como parte de las políticas de des-kurdificación se ha dirigido al propio idioma kurdo. La educación kurda se ha eliminado del plan de estudios en las escuelas.

Tras los ataques a la ciudad, la mayoría de la población local tuvo que emigrar al vecino cantón de Shehba. En declaraciones a Mezopotamya Agence (MA), Shena Kalo, portavoz del Comité de Educación de la Sociedad Democrática en Shehba, recordó que la gente de Afrin ha sido masacrada y desplazada de su tierra natal después de que sus tierras fueron ocupadas.

Al decir que la violación, la tortura y la violencia se han convertido en una rutina diaria en Afrin, Kalo afirmó que Turquía es hostil a los kurdos y los ataca dondequiera que residan. Hizo hincapié en que esta es la política básica que se persigue desde el punto de vista lingüístico, cultural y geográfico, y Afrin ha sido destruida por el saqueo y la destrucción.

Kalo enfatizó que han logrado avances importantes con la Revolución de Rojava, y que la educación en la lengua materna es la más importante entre ellos. Señaló que establecieron sus sistemas educativos y abrieron escuelas para ofrecer este servicio.

«Política de saqueo y destrucción»

“Los niños de nuestro pueblo se apresuraron a ir a estas escuelas. En el pasado, el estado sirio siempre prohibió nuestro idioma. Los funcionarios baazistas del estado estaban tratando de arabizarnos. Sin embargo, lo superamos gracias a la revolución. Abrazamos los logros de ella. Abrimos escuelas en caseríos, aldeas y distritos bajo la dirección de miles de maestros.

 Establecimos no solo la educación, sino también todas las demás partes de nuestro sistema, que fue confrontado por el estado turco esta vez. Introdujeron una política de saqueo y destrucción dondequiera que los kurdos lograran ganancias. Atacaron a Afrin con tanques, artillería y aviones de combate”, denunció.

Prohibición del lenguaje kurdo

Kalo contó que el primer objetivo de Turquía después de ocupar Afrin fue la educación: “Dijeron que brindarían educación en árabe, kurdo y turco. Eso fue mentira. El kurdo fue prohibido en Afrin en poco tiempo. Solo enseñaban en turco y árabe. Intentan imponer el turco a nuestra gente que permanece en Afrin.

Los nombres kurdos de calles, barrios, calles, pueblos y asentamientos en Afrin han sido reemplazados. Por tanto, iniciaron programas de asimilación. Obligan a la población local a aprender turco».

Al enfatizar que Turquía lanzó estos ataques con el apoyo de las potencias internacionales, Kalo continuó: “Las escuelas fueron su primer objetivo cuando comenzaron a atacar Afrin. Las bombardearon y destruyeron. El lenguaje es la identidad de un pueblo. 

Un ataque al idioma es una agresión al pueblo. Así se acercaron a nosotros. Si el idioma de un pueblo está prohibido o se enfrenta a la extinción, no es posible hablar de la existencia de ese pueblo”.

«Turquificación en Afrin»

Kalo afirmó que este plan tiene un marco amplio: “Los que regresan a Afrin son arrestados e interrogados. Son torturados y querían que los pusieran en fila. Los invasores piden rescate para liberar a los detenidos.

La gente se ve obligada a aprender turco. Dicen: ‘Si no aprendes o lees turco, tendrás que dejar Afrin’. Están planeando hacer de Afrin un lugar propio a través del cambio demográfico. La identidad kurda de esta región se está destruyendo gradualmente y se está implementando una política de turquificación».

Kalo agregó que establecieron su propio sistema educativo en Shehba, donde tuvieron que mudarse después de los ataques de invasión en Afrin.

“Damos educación a los niños en su lengua materna. Cuando se dieron cuenta de esto, recurrieron a la propaganda y dijeron que comenzarían a dar lecciones de kurdo. Están tratando de implementar esta nueva política a través de ENKS, que los apoya. 

Con base en este plan, están utilizando a nuestra gente allí como una herramienta para los esquemas del estado turco. Por lo tanto, nuestra gente debe tener cuidado y no dejarse engañar por tales esquemas. Debemos frustrar los planes del estado turco”, concluyó.
