To Press and Public!

US imperialism and other imperialist forces have intensified their administrative policies on the Middle- East and the recent developments in Syria. In order for the imperialists to practice such policies they gave/give an important role to the fascist Turkish state. The Turkish state has mobilized an “opposition against the human rights violations in Syria” and PM R.T. Erdogan tries to show himself in public as an advocate of human rights. The fascist AKP government applies on every provocation in order to open a war against Syria.

The recent incident is an open example for this in the border village Akçakale five people were killed by a rocket coming from the Syria borders and now Turkey uses this to complete its war mongering policies which are designed by imperialism. There is a great possibility that this bomb was thrown by the imperialists themselves or an anti-Syria opposition in Turkey, which was nourished by the AKP government, and now the state is calling upon the UN and the NATO. It is very clear that Turkey and the imperialists try to use the incident in Akçakale to initiate an open war against Syria. We all know that a war against Syria is only going to affect the oppressed Syrian people, instead of freedom this war will bring blood and exploitation. The main purpose of the fascist Turkish state is it to march into Syria and for this it shows the Esad fascism as a excuse but we all know that Esad and Erdogan used to be close friends initiating common policies against the progressive revolutionary movements in both countries and against the Kurdish national movement.

For this reason we cannot and will not remain silent against this aggression of imperialism and its lackey the Turkish state. On Thursday thousands of people all over Turkey protested against a up-coming resolution of the Turkish Parliament to march into Syria. The police forces and Turkish nationalists attacked the demonstrations. Peaceful demonstrators were taken under arrest.  It is time that we raise our voices and protest against this internationally. Our solidarity is with the Syrian people and we underline that we have to protest against imperialism the Turkish state but also against the Syrian state.

Long Live International Solidarity!

NATO, UN Get Out of the Middle East!
