Tabarnia: A not-so-funny Joke on Catalan Democracy

At first sight the Imaginary Kingdom of Tabarnia may be funny and subversive, (of course there’s less support for Independence on the industrial Catalan coast due to ”immigration” from other parts). But at second glance it’s another maneuver by the far right to sabotage the relatively progressive independence movement.

Tabarnia

The December 21 election in Catalonia produced some striking results and accentuated the deepening polarisation in the region. In the middle of what the pro-independence camp called a “Spanish occupation”, with the region’s autonomy practically repealed, the Catalan President Carles Puigdemont forced into self-exile in Belgium and some Catalan legislators sent to prison, those who support Catalonia’s independence from Spain still managed to maintain a slim majority in the regional parliament after the snap election.

The leaders of the ”winning”  Ciutadans’party have been exposed as prominent fascists who received huge financial support from the far right central government

 (ANTIWAR.COM) — As Turkey’s invasion of northern Syria continues, so too does their policy of arresting anyone seen as even sort of opposed to the attack. The Turkish Interior Ministry now says 449 people have been detained for criticizing the war on social media, and 124 more detained for taking part in actual protests.

SDF: Turkish attacks on Afrin repelled and the area was cleared of gangs

AFRIN (ANF) – Syrian Democratic Forces General Command released a statement about the latest situation in the Turkish state’s invasion operation against Afrin Canton of Rojava.
Full text of the statement is as follows;
“Turkey tries to realize its plans on the region by deceiving the peoples of the region. Turkish occupation army, with the mercenaries it has long been training in Turkey, wants to sow the seeds of hostility between Arab and Kurdish entities of Afrin.
Turkish occupation army and its mercenaries tried to invade parts of Afrin under the cover of Turkish air force, tanks and artillery shelling.

The local YPG volunteers proudly post a video of the destruction of an invading Turkish tank. But Turkey has the 2nd army in Nato with 1000’s of tanks and has been given a free hand by Russia for round the clock aerial bombing.

Our forces have been carrying out a special operation on Turkish troops and terrorists in the last few hours. As the operation and clashes continue heavily, current results are as following;
The operation has been taking place in five different areas. Adah Manli, Shadia and Surka villages of Raju district and Shinkal village of Bulbul district have been fully cleared off Turkish troops and the mercenaries. Intense clashes at some parts of the border area are continuing. Turkish occupation army and its mercenaries’ attempts to enter Afrin once again failed.
Turkish occupation army, who failed advance into Afrin on the ground, once again targeted civilians with multiple airstrikes. The bombardment carried out on Rubar IDP camp, Cilbir village of Sherawa district and the area surrounding Afrin city center caused many civilian deaths.
Turkish occupation army attacks Reyhanli district of Hatay city itself only to legitimate the ongoing massacre and blames our forces for this. We once again stress that we have nothing to do in shelling civilian settlements. We never target the territory outside of our borders.
We once again stress that the social media rumors and the allegations delivered by some media outlets should not be trusted unless officially confirmed by General Command statements. SDF General Command will keep the public up to date about the results of the battle and resistance.
During the clashes that are still going on, a number of Turkish soldiers and its mercenaries were killed. Detailed statement on the results of the attacks and our resistance is going to be issued later.”  from .. http://kurdishdailynews.org/2018/01/21/sdf-turkish-attacks-afrin-repelled-area-cleared-gangs/

If you try to take to the streets, know that our security forces will be at your neck.” “If anyone is in the streets upon calls [from the HDP], they will pay dearly for it. This is a national fight, and whoever opposes us will be crushed.” Erdoğan added.  from: https://www.turkishminute.com/2018/01/21/erdogan-threatens-hdp-over-afrin-whoever-opposes-us-will-be-crushed/
Erdoğan’s news agency targets exiled journalists over Afrin messages

”Aydın Ünal, a former speechwriter of President Erdoğan and current Justice and Development Party (AKP) deputy, warned Turkish journalists in exile of extrajudicial killings in a column published on Dec. 4 in the pro-Erdoğan Yeni Şafak daily.

Mercenary-terrorists confess being trained in Turkey

rats-confessed

”Turkey has been training thousands of terrorists to attack the Kurds, many of them forced to join up as their salaries  (via Saudi, Qatar, the US, etc) have been cut as the Syrian war winds down. A number of them are thought to be ex ISIS jihadists. .. earlier report:… Terrorist Mohammad Aqel Akk said U.S, Qatari and Saudi personnel trained them for 45 days in Salqin, Idleb and later they went to complete their training in Turkey where every trainee was given USD 200.
“We then returned to Aleppo and commenced a huge attack on army posts in Aleppo, but our operation was a failure and we got caught,” he added.  https://syrianfreepress.wordpress.com/2015/07/07/terrorists-confession

Chomsky and Human Rights Activists defend Efrîn (Afrin) from Terrorist Turkey

International academics: “An attack against the peaceful citizens of Efrîn is a flagrant act of aggression against a region and a peaceful and democratically governed population”
 Saturday, January 20, 2018


We, the undersigned academics and human rights activists, demand that the leaders of Russia, Iran and the United States ensure that Turkey does not break the sovereignty of the Syrian borders and that the people of Efrîn in Syria can live in peace.

In Efrîn, the mostly Kurdish population, is one of the most stable and secure regions in Syria. With very little international help, Efrîn has hosted so many Syrian refugees in the last five years that its population has doubled to 400,000. Efrîn is now surrounded by enemies: jihadist groups backed by Turkey, al-Qaeda and Turkey itself.

 

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened to attack the  YPG Kurds or the Popular Protection Units, with which the United States has allied themselves against IS.

Turkey accuses YPG of being “terrorists” despite the long history of YPG of creating democratic local government councils in each of the peoples that have freed from IS and its repeated statements that are not interested in Turkey and that they want to function only as the defense of the Syrian Kurds and other ethnic groups living in the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria (DFNS), also known as “Rojava”, which includes Efrîn.
