Worldwide Cry to Stop Fascist Invasion #RiseUp4Rojava

 

 

People Across the World Take Part in #RiseUp4Rojava

Responding to a call for solidarity on January 26th and 27th with the ongoing struggle for freedom, women’s liberation, and autonomy in Rojava, people across the world took part in solidarity actions under the banner, #RiseUp4Rojava. Large solidarity actions took place in Greece, in London, and in many other cities and towns. Below is a roundup of actions that took place in the US and some international highlights.

January 27th also represents the four year anniversary of the revolutionary defeat of ISIS in Kobane. As Abolitionist Media Worldwide pointed out, anarchists and other autonomous antifascists have been active in these ongoing military engagements, both fighting within the YPG and the YPJ, but also in autonomous anarchist and international antifascist formations as well.

For updates on the Rojavan revolution in English, see video dispatches from Internationalist Commune, the Tekoşîna Anarşîst Collective which is fighting on the ground, and Abolitionist Media Worldwide which is posting news of solidarity actions and initiatives.

Genocide Tomorrow: Trump sells ‘right to invade Rojava’ to Erdogan for $3.5bn .. STOP him NOW

According to Donald Trump, reports by Reuters and numerous American media, the 2000 US military troops are to be withdrawn from Syria. However the Pentagon may be stronger than Trump and hates the idea.

In a linked news, the State Department has approved a Sale to Turkey of eighty (80) Patriot MIM-104E GEM-T) missiles, sixty (60) PAC-3 (MSE) missiles for  $3.5 billion.

The deal appears to be a straight swap, $3.5 billion for the right to invade, massacre and take over Rojava, and resembles that done when Erdogan bought S-400 missiles and allowed the #turkstream 2 pipeline in exchange for Russia moving out its troops and giving bombing permission to invade Afrin.The presence of the US troops in Rojava has until now prevented Turkey from invading and colonizing all of North Syria and destroying the democratic multi ethnic, feminist Rojava Revolution, as repeatedly threatened by the elected dictator Erdogan. see..

Turkey has already invaded and is ‘Turkifying’ Afrin, Jarablus and Al Bab areas, as well as growing parts of Idlib where it is recruitng the jihadi militias, including ex ISIS and Al Qaeda, to its FSA mercenaries, paid in Turkish money, by promising them land, loot, rape and conquest in Rojava.

“The decision was taken yesterday (Tuesday)”, an American official told AFP, adding withdrawal would be “full and rapid.” This is a 180 degree turn compared to the US statement saying they will keep a long-term military presence in Syria.

Spokespeople from the YPG and YPJ Rojava defense forces  and the SDF multi ethnic militia are calling for international support and self reliance against the looming Turkish sponsored genocide, which will probably begin when the US troops are out and the Idlib mercenaries prepared. The US is apparently abandoning them after sacrificing thousands of volunteers to take back Raqqa, the ISIS capital and nearly all north Syria.
