MLPD call for participation in the worldwide day of action “Efrîn will live” on 21 March 2018 (Newroz)

On 21 March 2018, the day of the Kurdish Newroz festival, a worldwide day of action for solidarity with Efrîn (Rojava) will take place. The initiative for this came from the revolutionary world organization ICOR, which has more than 50 member organizations. The ILPS (International League of Peoples’ Struggle) also has issued a call for the day of action.

MLPD call for participation in the worldwide day of action “Efrîn will live” on 21 March 2018 (Newroz)

This day of action is intended to send out a strong signal of international solidarity and make this clear: no liberation struggle must and will be left alone and isolated!” says Monika Gärtner-Engel, the Main Coordinator of the ICOR.

The call of ICOR states: “Millions of people all over the world have already taken to the streets in solidarity with the struggle for democracy and freedom, against the invasion of Efrîn by the Turkish government in violation of international law. Unambiguously and as part of the solidarity pact of the ICOR with the Kurdish liberation struggle, 29 ICOR member organizations with their resolution of 26 January affirmed the demand and the hope: ‘Stop the fascist war of aggression on Rojava/Northern Syria! Efrîn will live!’”

Gabi Fechtner, Party Chairwoman of the MLPD, adds: In Germany the ICOR organization MLPD, together with many Kurdish friends and other allies, will organize a variety of activities. The emphasis will be on local action with rallies, demonstrations, information activities, celebrations, etc. We assume that in this way activities will be organized in around 50 cities. Of course, we will also participate in the central activities in Hannover. We particularly will target the German federal government’s participation in the war and the criminalizing of the solidarity with the Kurdish liberation struggle. With a hundred thousand voices we will anchor the ICOR demands and slogans for freedom and democracy:

Turkey out of Rojava! All imperialists out of Syria!

The struggle for democracy and freedom in Efrîn is also our struggle!

Stop the arms supplies and military support of Turkey!

Long live proletarian internationalism!

For peace, freedom, socialism!
