YPG International is an official information portal for the Rojava
Revolution and People’s Defense Units (YPG) made by YPG. We provide
first hand information for everyone who is interested in our struggle,
in people’s revolution of Rojava, in Kurdistan and in a democratic
Syria. YPG International is the international path to the Rojava
Revolution, the official path to support YPG in Rojava.
YPG strives for a democratic, ecologic, and anti-patriarchal system of
self-organisation; it takes its power from the people and fight for the
people. We struggle to defend the dignity of being a human when there is
no one around to defend it and to create an ethico-political society in
order to realize ideals of equality, justice, freedom, and
self-determination. We wage a war against all forms of fascism and
capitalist hegemony that try to enslave the peoples and destroy the
nature. We get our inspiration from the philosophy of Abdullah Ocalan
whose ideas have become a torch in the jungle of oppression for the poor
and the downtrodden; not only in Kurdistan but also in all around the world.
YPG is more than a military force. It is a revolutionary organization
that protects the transformation towards the ethico-political society
against its external and internal enemies in accordance with the
principles of democratic confederalism. So its fundamental mission is to
defend the people and the Rojava Revolution. Based on the philosophy of
Serok APO, the YPG struggles for a free and democratic Syria where
tolerance towards other political views, religions, sects, ethnicities,
cultures, and languages is a fundamental value. In this sense the YPG is
democratic and legitimate self-defense force against hegemonic assaults
of capitalist modernity and against pathological ideologies such as
Daesh that had been produced by the capitalist modernity itself along
with a deep crisis in the Middle East. The YPG is one of the forces in
the Middle East that offers an alternative to capitalist modernity and
its freakish products: the solution of democratic modernity. This
alternative solution is not an abstract formulation; nor is it a
salaried speculation. It offers ‘economic community’ as an alternative
to capitalism. It confronts with industrialism of capitalism through
ecological-economic community. It contests with nation-statism through
an ethico-political society. This, however, radical and realistic
position the YPG defends militarily creates enemies more than it creates
friends. Turkish state in the north for example has -probably still is-
collaborated with Daesh logistically and financially. The KDP as the
representative of primitive-nationalist and petty-bourgeois line in the
Middle Eastern political spectrum cooperates with Turkish state, tries
to suffocate Rojava with closed borders and with embargos, and even
attacks to Kurdish people in collaboration with the proxies of Turkish
state. If the Assad regime does not attack the YPG now, it is because it
has powerful enemies around itself that wait for an opportunity to
strangle it. Despite the defensive position of Daesh, it seems that it
will take more time to defeat these murderers completely. But that the
YPG struggles with enemies of humanity and defends the transformation of
Rojava in the direction of a democratic modernity is being appreciated
every day more and more by many. Dozens of the YPG martyrs from Germany
to Australia and of the internationalist revolutionaries who fell
fighting shoulder on shoulder with the red star of the YPG and of the
YPJ are the proof that the Rojava Revolution has already become an
internationalist revolution that would never be extinguished.
To protect this revolution is a big mission and everyone should give
some efforts, thats an internationalist mission of all socialists,
democrats and revolutionars. The enemy is well organized and is
attacking this revolution in many ways, not just in a military way.
Political, economical, social and ideological attacks are threatening
this project for an other world. But we are not without a defense, all
over the world more and more people understand the potential of this
revolution and more and more show their solidarity. Your help is
necessary to defend this revolution, and the experiences of this
revolution are necessary to find again an succesfull revolutionary
perspective in the struggle against capitalism, imperialism,
colonialism, patriarchat and all other forms of oppression.
To defend the revolution this war is necessary, there is no alternative
in Middle East today. Share our homepage, write about it. We want to
have more concious people coming to Rojava to support YPG, to learn
about the revolution and the movement which was able to organize it.
Understanding Rojava is difficult from outside, some things in life you
have to see with your own eyes to understand it. This revolution will
change everything, let us together change the history! Every link, like,
article, interview, and so on more is a step into the right direction.
If you want to have more informations ask us, you can write us in
Kurdish, Turkish, English, German and French.
A first step in supporting YPG could be some technical help for our new
homepage. If you have technical skills and you want to support us with
technical and web-design help for our homepage, you are welcome.
Specially about some good photoshop-works with the subjects YPG/YPJ/YPG
International/International Sehids/Martyrers we would be very glad (by
the way, we also still need a good design for a YPG International Logo).
