Global Rally against ISIS – for Kobanê – for Humanity! NOV. 01, 2014 - by Layla
The so-called international coalition to fight the ISIS, have not helped Kurdish resistance effectively despite witnessing the ongoing genocide committed against Kobanê. They have not fulfilled their real international legal obligations. Some of the countries in the coalition, especially Turkey, are among financial and military supporters of the ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria. Therefore a Global Rally against ISIS – for Kobanê – for Humanity is vital. If the world wants democracy i...

Turkey agrees to allow Peshmerga from Iraq into Kobane - by S
Turkey to allow Kurdish PUK troops from Iraq to pass Turkey and enter Kobane. YPG is not asking for this support. Indeed, it may turn into an occupation of revolutionary Kobane after ISIL has been kicked out, since Iraqi Kurdish PUK is not as left-leaning and democratic as the YPG. Kurdish militias in Iraq are unfortunately not revolutionary, which is why they enjoy endless US and EU support. PUK: Kurdish Patriotic Union.

Down with the Imperialist War in Iraq and Syria! - by PCInt
In early August the American government decided to launch a limited “humanitarian action” – in the form of mass bombing! – in Iraq, after an international campaign to mobilize public opinion over the plight of the Yazidi and Christian minorities who have been threatened with “genocide” by the advance of Islamist rebels of “the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant” (better known by the acronym ISIS).

David Graeber on Rojava Revolution - Spanish Civil War of our age? - by S
If there is a parallel today to Franco’s superficially devout, murderous Falangists, who would it be but Isis? If there is a parallel to the Mujeres Libres of Spain, who could it be but the courageous women defending the barricades in Kobane? Is the world – and this time most scandalously of all, the international left – really going to be complicit in letting history repeat itself?

¡Abajo la guerra imperialista en Irak y Siria! - by partido comunista internacional
A comienzos de agosto, el gobierno estadounidense decidía lanzar una “operación humanitaria” limitada en Irak bajo la forma de bombardeos. No sin antes haber realizado una campaña internacional de movilización de la opinión pública con respecto a las minorías yazidíes y cristianas que habrían sido amenazadas de “genocidio”, en virtud del avance de los rebeldes islamistas del “Estado Islámico de Iraq y el Levante” (mejor conocidos por sus siglas en inglés ISIS).
