ENOUGH OF THE COLLABORATING COMPANIES HIDING THE DIRTY WORK OF THE GENOCIDAL STATE!
As we know, at the beginning of October, in the northwest of Syria, the Turkish army started a military operation against Rojava, with the intention of imposing an imperialist project. Erdogan has started his invasion by occupying and controlling this territory, which means the displacement and murder of thousands of people, endangering the revolutionary (and in many ways liberating) project that they started to develop 7 years ago in this place. The rapes, murders and expulsions of the local population that are currently taking place under Turkish occupation bring with them ethnic cleansing and the plundering of natural resources. We would also like to underline that the historic struggle of the People’s Defence Units and the Women’s Defence Units (YPG/YPJ) has also been attacked. Therefore, we also understand that the revolutionary women’s movement has been attacked.
This whole situation has led us women from all over Euskal Herria (Basque country) to mobilize, therefore, we have come to denounce the companies that collaborate with Turkey. One of them is Iberdrola, which the agency EMRA (Energy Market Regulatory Agency) has granted permission to to increase the wind farm in Turkey, the installation and construction of which will begin next year. Iberdrola plans to participate in the process of privatization of the electricity production and distribution sector in Turkey so that its economy will be increased. We must not forget that Turkey’s privatization program is supported by the IMF (International Monetary Fund). We understand that private companies that operate in the capitalist interest only bring enrichment of the few (such as Ignacio Sanchez Galan, president of the company Iberdrola and Hilmi Guler, Minister of Energy in Turkey in this case) and that in this sense, the companies that negotiate with Turkey feed imperialism and so participate in this genocide.
In this way, we encourage collectives and individuals to organize and mobilize in the boycott of both the imperialist state of Turkey and the companies collaborating in this genocide. Together with this, we want to remember that the platform “Riseup 4 Rojava” has called on November 2 the international day for the defense of Rojava.
LET US STOP THIS IMPERIALIST AND FASCIST INVASION!
