‘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.

Tear Gas and Rubber Bullets on the Streets of Southern France

  An eye-witness report from Act 16 of the ongoing Yellow Vest uprising against neoliberalism, by Paul Cudenec of Shoal Collective

We had just positioned ourselves downwind from the teargas canisters that had been fired towards us from the ranks of riot police protecting the Sous-Préfecture, the French state’s HQ in Alès, southern France.

Then suddenly we were coming under attack from the opposite direction. A squadron of cops was lurking, unseen, on the other side of the modern pedestrianised square and had started firing tear gas from behind us.

Choking and with streaming eyes, we fled down a little side street which, ironically enough, turned out to be dedicated to the “martyrs of the resistance”.

Passers-by, women with young children, stood gawping in the direction of the clouds of chemical warfare following us down the road. Continue reading “Tear Gas and Rubber Bullets on the Streets of Southern France”

Spanish Regime to Brainwash Children: .. Refuse to pay Military % of Taxes!

Spanish right-wing minority government promotes compulsory militarism in schools

By Alejandro López :  from wsws. shared with thanks

Spain’s Popular Party (PP) government has designed a new syllabus for 6-to-12-year-old schoolchildren, “Social Values and Ethical Values”, which promotes militarism and Spanish nationalism.

Children will have to learn the anthem of the armed forces and its different divisions (land, sea and air), create publicity posters for the National Day parade, and make pins showing the Spanish flag.

The syllabus has been designed by the Ministry of Education National Centre for Innovation and Educational Research (CNIIE) and the Ministry of Defence Security and Defense Coordination and Studies Division.

To realise its grandiose imperialist ambitions, Spain announced earlier this year that it will more than double its defence budget by 2024, from €8.7 billion to €18.47 billion.

The reactionary content is evident in the leaked 245-page draft syllabus, which is composed of 10 teaching units, including the need to respect the army, the police, the flag, the anthem and the King and to uphold the unity of Spain.

The Socialist Party (PSOE) and the pseudo-left Podemos organisation are fully behind the PP’s approach, disagreeing only on the way it is presented.

In a debate in the Spanish Senate this week, PSOE senator Begoña Nasarre declared, “The youngest have the right to know what their armed forces are, a fundamental part of the security and protection of the country and the exercise of our rights and freedoms.” She criticized the PP because it had removed the “Education for Citizenship” topic from the school curriculum, which had been formulated “with participation from all areas and sectors… and maximum consensus.” Continue reading “Spanish Regime to Brainwash Children: ..

El puerto está controlado ahora por las fuerzas del General Hafter. los ‘últimos noticias son que el petróleo había sido redirigido a otro oleoducto y que se perderán menos de 100.000 barriles por día en exportaciones durante aproximadamente una semana. Sin embargo, los precios del petróleo en los Estados Unidos alcanzaron un nuevo récord después de la noticia. https://thefreeonline.files.wordpress.com/2017/12/dr_lunjw4aax30v.jpguna foto en Twitter del oleoducto.. 26 de diciembre 17

“Una fuente militar dijo a RIA Novosti que la” gran “explosión en el oleoducto fue el resultado de un ataque terrorista” Los combatientes pertenecían a las Brigadas de Defensa de Benghazi (afiliadas a Al Qaeda) o al Estado Islámico (IS, anteriormente ISIS / ISIL) ya que son terroristas que llevan a cabo desvíos para paralizar las instalaciones de producción petrolera “.

Repsol sigue saqueando Libia … Las ganancias se disparan mientras que los vecinos Tuareg y Tebu pasan hambre


El sabotaje de Es Sider, sin embargo, no interrumpirá las exportaciones del yacimiento petrolífero de Sharara, donde la empresa española Repsol tiene la mayor participación del 60%. Sharara ahora exporta casi 300.000 barriles de petróleo por día, lo que le da enormes ganancias a Repsol.El inmenso campo petrolero de Sharara. El gas metano se quema, desperdiciando un recurso no renovable para obtener ganancias más rápidas. No les importa la creciente emergencia climática del planeta, al contrario el Repsol se jacta del incremento de la extracción y la gente local se queján del racismo y que no han recibido nada.
