Revolutionary Left Movement in Syria: position around the bombings of the International Coalition led by the USA

484833_10151742795001887_115366916_n

Today the American planes bombed positions of Daesh (also known as the Islamic State), Jabhat al Nusra ( al Qaeda branch in Syria) and Ahrar Sham. These bombings occurred, according to some sources, with the participation of the reactionary Arab governments allied to the USA government, which are leading the counter-revolution at the regional level

We do not welcome these bombings, even though we have called since the advent of these reactionary and fascist forces to oppose them because they are hostile to the popular revolt, unlike the positions of the various liberal opposition bodies linked the Syrian National Council and the National Coalition for Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces, which consider them by all their foolishness and immorality as components of the revolution. We oppose and strongly condemn the bombings and imperialist military intervention in Syria and call to confront it, in opposition to the Liberal bodies of the Syrian National Council and of the National Coalition for Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces that welcomed it

The reason why we oppose this imperialist intervention is that its objectives are not to support the Syrian people in their revolution, but to restore an imperialist domination of the countries of the region after the on-going popular revolts undermined it

Daech and jihadist forces are the result of the imperialist military intervention and of the brutality and corruption of despotic regimes

In the face of the multiplication of the enemies acting against the revolution of the Syrian people, we see that only the conscious and organized masses led by a truly revolutionary leadership are able to defeat these reactionary forces hostile to the revolution, to defeat the authoritarian regime, and also to defeat the imperialist intervention

No to Washington and its allies

No to Moscow and its allies

No to Daesh, no to the counter-revolutionary forces, and no the authoritarian regime

Long live the unity and struggle of the workers and oppressed everywhere

All the power and wealth to the people

Comrades

Since the announcement of the establishment of the People’s Liberation Faction four months ago, which defends the program of the popular revolution for the liberation and emancipation of the Syrian people, of all Syrians, from all kinds of tyrannies and for equality and social justice,  in order to defend itself and for the protection of the masses,  which we embrace and we defend its right to exercise their freedom and mobilisation in all its liberty and from below. Therefore we were not, and we are not, at odd or separate of the masses, because the activists of the People’s Liberation Faction are themselves from the masses. We were, despite our modest capacities and the absence of any full support of anyone, able to maintain the spirit of the popular revolution in areas in which we are present to oppose the brutality and oppression of the authoritarian regime’s killing machine and also to oppose the reactionary forces of the counter-revolution, foremost Daech and similar organizations

Comrades

We therefore defended and defend our people in the areas in which we are present, regardless of their religious and ethic affiliation. We particularly condemn in this regard the reactionary attacks on Kurdish villages and towns and sectarian attacks. Just as we also did not bow in front the advance of the reactionary counter-revolution forces, whether in front the advance of the regime forces on one hand or of Daech forces and its sister organisations on the other hand. Despite the harsh conditions in which we live and the decline of the remarkable popular and the revolutionary movement, we are, however, working and struggling among our popular masses who are still struggling for their emancipation. The flames of the popular revolution are still burning and are still not extinguished. On the opposite we bet on the advancement and progress of a larger and of a nearby popular movement

Comrades

We have learned the experience that the revolutions taking place in the countries of the region have a mutual influence on each other, and we have seen that our popular revolution in this process requires regional and international solidarity and cooperation between the revolutionary forces, just as we have stated before that the liberation of Palestine, the Golan and all the occupied Arab territories are at the heart of the objectives and tasks of the current revolutions. The Zionist State allied to the authoritarian and corrupt Arab leaders are the sworn enemy of the liberation of the peoples of our countries

We, within Syrian popular revolution that is facing the Assad authoritarian regime, which is killing its own people as it has killed the Palestinian people in Syria and Lebanon. express our full solidarity with the struggle of the Palestinian people in the face of this new aggression of the Zionist killing and destructing machine. This Zionist aggression, which enjoys. as usual, the miserable support and shameful collaboration of the Arab regimes. is the reasons we once more confirm the fact and truth that the Liberation of Palestine also passes through the liberation of Damascus and of all the other Arab capitals throughout the whole region

Our struggle is common, and our enemies are complicit partners

Viva the struggle of the Palestinian people. Viva an eternal free Palestine

Viva the Syrian popular revolution

We are always with the struggle of the masses for their freedom and emancipation

Statement of solidarity with the Kurdish masses against the attacks of the reactionary counter revolutionary forces

484833_10151742795001887_115366916_n

The attacks of the reactionary and takfirists armed forces did not cease against the Syrian civilian and revolutionary forces in each region it entered, including the kidnapping, murdering, arresting and slaughtering publicly activists. These reactionary counter revolutionary forces always worked to destroy the revolutionary popular movement and to impose their reactionary hegemony on the rest of the popular masses in the so called «liberated» areas, in which these reactionary forces were able to penetrate, especially Daech and similar type of organizations.  These continuous attacks on the popular revolutionary forces and masses that carry the original program of the popular revolution, demonstrated that these latter were facing a double threat : on one side the reactionary counter revolutionary forces and on the other hand the forces of the ruling authoritarian bourgeois regimeDaech and the rest of the reactionary forces as well did not stop to practice the ugliest forms of attacks on various Kurdish towns and regions, especially against the region of Kobani – 3ain al Arab, for nearly two years, characterized by the bombing, killing, destruction, abduction and displacement of the Kurdish people. These actions are rooted  in racist hatred in the most ugliest way. These actions remind us of the actions practiced by the regime against our people for more than the past three years now.  These actions constitute a threat to the areas in which the popular and civil movement are still alive and active and secular.

The suspicious silence of some sections of the opposition forces regarding the continuous barbaric attacks against the Kurdish masses, rather than referring to these interventions, is the result of national chauvinism and therefore of miserable complicity with these actions, which must be condemned and denounced without hesitation. In both cases, we have to remember, for anyone who needs a reminder, that the Kurdish masses in our country, which has suffered from discrimination, injustice and oppression, have carried very early on the banner of rebellion against the ruling authoritarian regime.  Their sons have participated, since long decades, in all the Syrian leftist and secular parties and in all their struggles. The Kurdish masses were the ones to lead the uprising of March 2004, in an atmosphere of inaction and silence of the majority of the political forces of the Syrian opposition

Just as we witnessed in the Kurdish cities of Afrin, Amouda, Qamishli and others great popular mobilisations. In addition they were one of the first cities to protest and participate in the popular revolt since March 2011

Therefore we do not only declare our full and firm solidarity with the Kurdish masses against the attacks of Daech and others in the areas in which they are present, but we would like to reaffirm our known position calling for the recognition of the national, cultural and political rights of the Kurdish people, not only in the Syrian region of “Rojava” but in all parts of Kurdistan

Our support for the above mentioned rights of the Kurdish people do not prevent us to wish and to invite the Kurdish people to be, as it is the case today to a large extent in Syria, to be a full partner with us and the rest of the Syrian revolutionary masses in our united struggle against the ruling bourgeois regime, because our victory depends on the unity and independence of all the popular class far from religious and ethnic divisions. We also want the Kurdish people to be a partner in building a free and democratic Syria that is based on social justice and secularism and full equality for all its citizens regardless of their ethnic or religious or confessional origins

For freedom, equality, and the triumph of the revolution and the current and upcoming popular struggles, Viva the unity of the popular masses in Syria

Viva the unity of struggle of our popular masses without the slightest discrimination based on ethnicity, religion or confession

Viva the revolution of the toilers and the oppressed

Viva the People’s Revolution

All power and wealth to the people
