The International Red Help salutes the internationalist volunteers fighting alongside the peoples of Rojava. The self-determination and self-organisation on the basis of progressive values -democracy, social justice, freedom of women- of the peoples of Rojava is an exception in the Middle-East, an area shred between oppressive regimes and islamist gangs. It is also a precious experience for the whole international revolutionary movement, an experience which is to be studied and supported.
We salute the memory of the internationalist volunteers fallen killed in action, as the young German revolutionary Ivana Hoffmann. We salute the communist and anarchist turkish internationalist militants who fought in Rojava and are jailed in Turkey because of this.
We salute all the militants that are persecuted in any ways while returning home, in Great-Britain, Denmark, Netherlands and especially in Spain where 14 militants have been arrested. Among them, two have been arrested directly while returning from Rojava where they have been joining the MLKP Battalion. The “Valle” police operation who culminated on January 27th with raids against the Marxist-Leninist Party (Communist Reconstruction) represents the main attack against revolutionary solidarity with Rojava in Europe.
