International Solidarity Statement with Rojava

We are the international delegates of III International Congress on Dilemmas of Humanity organized by the MST (Movemento Sem Terra) in Sao Paulo Brazil.

We are deeply distressed by recent reports of the outbreak of hostilities initiated by the Turkish State against the Kurdish populations in Northern Syria, Northern Iraq and even within Turkey itself.

The liberation of that part of Northern Syria known as Rojava and the liberation of the city of Kobane from ISIS control through the brave resistance of the Kurdish population and its YPG militia with US air support was a turning point in the battle to contain the spread of ISIS power in the region. Against this there is strong evidence of the collusion of Turkish government with ISIS in order to secure the overthrow of President Asad of Syria and to curb Kurdish initiatives to establish a new kind of social order in Rojava on the principles of democratic confederalism. This exciting experiment in a new form of democratic governance based on principles of personal and gender equality is threatened by Turkish military action.

In addition Turkish airstrikes against Kurdish populations in Northern Iraq and even within Turkey itself suggest the intention on the part of the Turkish state to launch an all out attack upon Kurdish populations everywhere.

We also protest the widespread and arbitrary arrest of supposed Kurdish sympathizers in Turkey itself and the threat to strip the parliamentary representatives of the Kurdish population of their immunity from prosecution.

In the light of all these events we call upon the Turkish government to cease and desist from all further military actions against Kurdish populations everywhere and we call upon all parties to renew the peace negotiations as envisaged in the ceasefire accords agreed in 2011.

We call upon the international community and all of those concerned with the establishment of peace and justice in the world to put maximum pressure upon the Turkish government to desist from the dangerous and violent course of action upon which it appears to be currently embarked.
