Statement No: 2022/3
Against Imperialist Occupations, All Kinds of National, Sexual and Class Oppression
Blacksmith KAWAs Will Win, Cruel DEHAKs Will Lose!
We welcome Newroz with the destruction that unjust wars, imperialist occupations, reactionary annexation attacks have caused on the working class and oppressed peoples around the world!
We welcome Newroz with the working and living conditions that a handful of ruling classes enjoy for the working class, in which countless workers are killed under the name of work accidents, and millions of workers are condemned to hunger and misery!
We welcome Newroz under conditions where thousands of women and LGBTI+ individuals are murdered under the patriarchy of the patriarchal system, subjected to hate violence and targeted!
We welcome Newroz in conditions where capitalist imperialism destroys nature in the name of more profit, causes environmental disasters, therefore “climate changes” occur, pandemics such as Covid-19 occur, and capitalism drags the planet to extinction!
We welcome Newroz under the pressure and domination of dominant beliefs on oppressed beliefs!
We welcome Newroz under the invasion of Ukraine by Russian imperialism and the invasion and annexation attacks of Turkish fascism against Iraqi Kurdistan, especially Rojava.
As the day of the revolt of the peoples of the Middle East, especially the Kurdish nation, against the oppression of the oppressor, Newroz is once again the name of the rebellion! Blacksmith Kawa’s revolt against cruel Dehak, which took place thousands of years ago, now rises as a flag in the hands of all the oppressed. Newroz grows as Blacksmith Kawa’s rebellion against the cruel Dehaks. The justification of just wars becomes a weapon in the hands of the oppressed peoples who revolt against national oppression. Blacksmith Kawa’s revolt against the cruel Dehak now grows as the epic of the working class and the oppressed peoples’ just wars against imperialist capitalism, the ruling classes, those who apply national oppression, those who impose all kinds of unjust wars, occupations and annexations on the oppressed people.
The fire lit by Blacksmith Kawa thousands of years ago is now burning even more in the hands of millions.
This year, we are entering Newroz with the war, which is accompanied by the attack of the US-EU imperialists to encircle the Russian imperialists through Ukraine through NATO, and Russia to respond to this siege by invading Ukraine. Imperialist capitalists once again confronted humanity with pain, destruction, emigration and death through unjust wars. The effect of the protracted war will have grave consequences for all peoples of the world, especially the people of Ukraine. The oppressed peoples of the world will face a series of problems, especially starvation and famine. Under these conditions, we are faced with raising the just wars of the working class and the oppressed peoples against all kinds of imperialist occupation and war and raising the rebel flag of Newroz.
The right of the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Luhansk People’s Republic to freely secede must be respected in the Russian-dominated Donbass region in the southeast of Ukraine, which the Russian imperialists are propagating as a justification for the occupation. All the peoples of the world should unconditionally defend the right of these nations to separate freely, as well as all oppressed nations.
The peoples of the world, all the oppressed classes and nations should oppose the Russian imperialism’s invasion of Ukraine. Annexation attacks should also be rejected and condemned. We shall fight against all kinds of imperialist invasion and annexation attacks, and attacks of Turkish fascism against the peoples of the region, especially the Kurdish nation.
We reject all forms of opposition to war in the name of peace. We are aware that as long as imperialism exists, there will be all kinds of unjust and reactionary wars, and that the only way to eliminate unjust wars is to wage the just wars of the working class and the oppressed peoples.
Now is the time to be Blacksmith Kawa against the wars of imperialist capitalists. Now is the time for Newroz against the aggression of the reactionary states of the region, especially the Turkish Republic, against the working class and the oppressed peoples.
Long Live Newroz!
Down with All Kinds of Imperialist Occupation and Attack!
We Will Defeat Fascism, We Will Win Freedom!
Long live Proletarian Internationalism!
