‘Erdogan’s terrorists ”Assassinating, Beheading, Stabbing and Planting Explosives’ in ‘Safe Zone’


Turkish ‘elected dictator’ Tayyip Erdogan said yet again on Saturday that he will order a military air and ground operation east of the Euphrates river in Syria.“We’ve made our preparations, we’ve made our operation plans, given the necessary instructions”, the politician said, adding that Turkey would launch the illegal genocidal invasion “as soon as today or tomorrow”.

But a Turkish backed mercenary group, Ahrar al-Shaab  ” has already infiltrated the area and is committing dozens of atrocities,  specializing in assassinations, beheadings, stabbings and the planting of explosive devices to ‘avenge attacks by the resistance in occupied Afrin’, focusing on border cities such as Serekaniye, Dirbesiye and Qamishlo in Erdogan’s ”Safe Zone”. (see below and HERE https://rojavainformationcenter.com/2019/09/database).

7 Oct 2019. Yesterdays massive protests against imminent illegal Turkish Invasion in Sere Kaniye/Ras al-Ayn border.

Erdogan is still being courted by both the US and Russia who see Turkey as strategic, he has defied with impunity the now embattled Trump on the S400 deal and on buying Iranian oil, and now demands permission to use Syrian air space to again bomb the Syrian people before invading.

Erdogan claimed he intends to settle 3.5m Syrian refugees in Turkey in the invaded area he calls a ”safe zone”…

But over and over he previously claimed he wants to expel the local Kurdish population. ”cleanse Rojava” and restore the Ottoman Empire and is proving his wish in ‘turkifying’ Afrin, so this new senseless invasion would be more ethnic cleansing and attempted genocide.

Serekaniye demonstration ‘Down with the occupation’ Syrian Kurds protest

Erdogan has gained much needed support (his AKP party lost Istanbul city council) by complaining often about the  3.5m Syrian refugees in Turkey, although they are less than 5% of the Turkish population in a huge area. Turkey has already received 6,000,000,000 euros by blackmailing EU taxpayers to support them.

Refugees used again as Human Blackmail by Erdogan to extract money and impunity for Rojava invasion

Meanwhile they are forced to work black for starvation wages, boosting the economy and forcing salaries down for everyone. (The over 3 million Syrian refugees in Turkey (actually a tiny minority in a population of 81 million compared with the IDP’s hosted in Rojava and formerly Afrin) are being cruelly exploited as virtual black slave labour while being subsidised with billions of euros by the EU taxpayer with continuous blatant blackmail threats to ” flood Europe” with them.)

And now he is using them as a ridiculous excuse for a new illegal invasion, this time in NE Syria. (The idea of ‘settling’ 2,000,000 refugees in an already occupied  rural semi desert region with no resources might appeal to Erdogan’s favourite historical figure: Adolf Hitler).

Lebanon for example has nearly half its population Syrian refugees and gets little aid or attention. Afrin, before the ongoing invasion by Turkey, had nearly doubled its population hosting a huge number of Arab, Christian, Assyrian and Turkmen refugees and was hailed as a  model of direct democracy, gender equality and religious and ethnic tolerance.

Despite a siege blockade the Afrin population nearly doubled (172k to 323k )  while Turkey’s has only increased by 4.4%  (3.5 million out of 80 million).  (The total population of Afrin as of 2005 was recorded at only 172,095 people Wikipedia.) The Turkish takeover has forced a mass exodus of refugees from Afrin amidst documented reports of mass murder, widespread looting , kidnapping, rape, a continuing guerilla war and pillage by the Turkish contracted Jihadi mercenaries and Turkish military.

Once invaded Turkey will NEVER LEAVE, and a guerilla war will continue indefinitely. For example, Turkey refuses to leave Nth Cyprus,  or its illegal bases in Iraq,or Afrin, Al Bab, Jarablus, Azaz.. or of course the Syrian province of Hatay, now 80 years invaded and ethnically cleansed.

Erdogan forced more than half Afrin’s population to flee and they still survive in tent camps, seizing their property and importing thousands of jihadi mercenaries, Al Qaeda ex ISIS guerillas, and sponsored the Al Qaesa mini state in Idlib….

…and now has the utter hypocrisy to complain about refugees and announce a new invasion ‘to settle them in a safe area’.

Defeated but defiant. Massacres  by Turkish troops and  the mercenaries of FSA  around Afrin  as the NATO tanks finally rolled in and the Afrin defense became a guerilla war..

It is not necessary either to set  up a ”safe zone”.   All Turkey has to do is pull out and stop the arms, cash and material supplies,  HTS in Idlib would have to surrender the Al Qaeda State, the war would quickly end and the refugees would surely flock home.

Turkey vs Rojava: false videos inflame hatred of Kurds.. Defend the SDF!

note: this blog thefreeonline.wordpress.com, has now been banned in Turkey and for computers with Turkish origin. see report here: ‘TheFreeOnline’ blog banned in Turkey with Dozens more pro Rojava and Anti Fascist sites

We share a report from many by The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights   about Turkish attacks on the SDF .

Context: The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) were started in 2015 to expand the Rojava Revolution by inviting male and female militias of all races and religions to join in expanding and defending the struggle.

Now it’s a multi ethnic, multi religion, anti sexist, non authoritarian federation, which includes women and dozens of groups of all religions and races, having liberated Manbij, Raqqa and Deir es Zor etc. from ISIS terror. the SDF is now the official military force of the  Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AA)    Kurds may now be a minority in the SDF but the YPG/YPJ is the biggest militia.

Turkey again makes daily threats to eliminate the 70,000 strong force, financing and supplying ISIS remnants,as well as HTS Al Qaeda, Islamic militias and infiltrating terrorist gangs, while Assad forces conspire with tribal leaders to foment resistance. The SDF still has ‘protection’ by none less than a small force of the USA military, for their own imperialist reasons, though Trump still plans to pull out.

Press reports suggest Erdogan may take advantage of the truce in the Turkish supplied Idlib war to invade  Rojava (AA)  on the pretext of creating a 32km ”safe zone” which would include the main Kurdish cities, in a dirty deal with the US.

That is, ERdogan needs permission from the US to use the airspace and bomb Rojava cities to oblivion. (In exchange for  ???) This was what made the Afrin invasion possible, but that time it was Russia which did the dirty deal and gave bombing permission.

In preparation for a planned Turkish military operation east of Euphrates, the media campaign to create Arab–Kurdish strife continues through creation of more fake videos

”Media fabrications by the Turkey-loyal [ie mercenary] groups continue spreading videos showing men dressed as  members of the Syria Democratic Forces torturing and beating citizens, in order to create  Arab–Kurdish strife in the east Euphrates area and northeast of Aleppo”.

”The latest of these is a video showing members dressed as SDF, speaking in Kurdish, and torturing an Arab family, who they beat, insult, and do immoral acts to. Also the video shows a car belonging to Asayish [SDF security] with SDF flag next to it, which was met with angry reactions on social media.

But a lot of evidence proves the fabrication of this fake video: it shows the speaker saying that these are women fleeing forced recruitment, but there is no forced recruitment for women within SDF; Continue reading “Turkey vs Rojava: false videos inflame hatred of Kurds.. Defend the SDF!”

Mother gets 7 years for Speech at Son’s funeral ..Stop Turkish Fascism!

The mother was accused of being a member of a terrorist organization due to her remarks in a speech that she gave over the grave of her son Evrim Deniz Erol and some other press statements regarding his death.       continues below


suruc-explosion-3_3381376bJuly 20, 2015, Suruç: 34 Kurdish humanitarian volunteers were killed and about 100 injured in a suicide bombing in the predominantly-Kurdish town of Suruç near the border with Syria. Turkish officials blamed ISIS. But instead of cracking down on ISIS which at the time was covertly sponsored in Turkey,  they immediately began a blitzkrieg persecution of the Kurds themselves who were the victims, resulting in the end of the ceasefire (and the whole Peace Process initiated and maintained by the imprisoned Kurdish leader Ocalan) and unleashing the wave of Turkish nationalism that boosted Erdogan’s march to supreme dictator. ISIS never claimed the attack.


Erol’s lawyer Abdulbakir Erdogmus told Gazete Duvar that accusations against the mother are legally unacceptable. Continue reading “Mother gets 7 years for Speech at Son’s funeral ..Stop Turkish Fascism!”

They protested in front of various arms companies such as BAE Systems in London, Rheinmetall in Austria and Germany, and financial institutions such as CreditSuisse in Switzerland.

Suruç Families Initiative: ‘We are Getting Arrested Instead of Killers’

Planting Freedom; CNT Backs Rojava Revolution

Let’s fight against isolation. Let’s put an end to fascism. Let’s liberate Kurdistan.

International Reviews Rojava LAURA GIMENO -CNT TERUEL

During the week of 11 to 16 February a hundred internationalists have been marching from Luxembourg to Strasbourg for the “Long March internationalist”, a march that has been organized for three years and has as its main objective to demand the freedom of Abdullah Öcalan.The long marches are one of the fighting tools that have been applied for many years in the points where there is a large Kurdish population in the diaspora.

For three years, this tool has been internationalized and has become a meeting point for people from different parts of the world who support the Kurdish cause, a meeting point to share experiences and training, a meeting point and confluence between different tendencies and ideologies of the left, united under the slogan “Let’s fight against isolation.

300 on Hunger Strike – How Ocalan Transformed the PKK into Anti-Terrorists

Right now over 300 people, mostly Kurdish prisoners in Turkey , are on indefinite hunger strike, and many of them are reaching the stage of permanent health damage and death.
They are striking not to protest their obvious innocence or the shocking conditions, but for the right of their leader, Ocalan, to have contact with the outside world.
That seems a strange thing to die for, but Ocalan in the past has declared ceasefires with the Turkish State which have lasted years and sparked a promising peace process.
Ocalan above all is responsible for rejecting terrorism, stalinism and the fight for a new state in favour of ‘municipal anarchist’ communal ideas and feminist emancipation which have swept through the 15 million Kurdish population.
So when the hunger strikers demand Ocalan be allowed to speak they are demanding the first step in a new peace process, and the end of the ongoing anti Kurdish pogrom in Turkey and the north of Syria.
But because the PKK is branded as terrorist by the US they get little international support.Turkey is the real terrorist, it certainly has a poor human rights record, with documented massacres or mass killings of Kurds in 1930, 1978, 1987, 2009, 2011, and 2016.
It has repressed and discriminated for decades against its Kurdish population, including by trying to destroy its separate culture. Continue reading “300 on Hunger Strike – How Ocalan Transformed the PKK into Anti-Terrorists”
