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 regime Daech 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 – Ain 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
