PKK: Paris Massacre perpetrators deliberately obscured
PKK: The Paris Massacre was perpetrated by fascist-genocidal forces that feed off of the Kurdish issue. It was an attack geared towards preventing a solution to the Kurdish issue.
The PKK Executive Committee issued a written statement on the 6th anniversary of the Paris Massacre and said, “The vile murder of comrades Sara, Rojbin and Ronahi in the middle of Paris on January 9 was a planned and organized attack by the Tayyip Erdogan administration and the Turkish National Intelligence Agency MIT under Hakan Fidan’s rule.”
The PKK Executive Committee statement is as follows:
“We remember with respect and gratitude comrades Sakine Cansiz (Sara), one of the founders of our party and a leading militant in the women’s freedom struggle, Fidan Dogan (Rojbin) and Leyla Saylemez (Ronahi), esteemed militant women of our party, on the 6th anniversary of their murder in Paris. We state that in the 7th year of this vile massacre that we will keep the memory of our esteemed martyrs alive in the victory lunge ‘Break the isolation, tear down fascism and free Kurdistan’ we developed as a party and a people.
As it is known, the vile murder of comrades Sara, Rojbin and Ronahi in the middle of Paris on January 9 was a planned and organized attack by the Tayyip Erdogan administration and the Turkish National Intelligence Agency MIT under Hakan Fidan’s rule. It was impossible for such an attack to happen without support from France and other powers in Europe. Thus, the French administration of the time and certain European states had direct responsibility. Moreover, the murderer Omer Guney was arrested and questioned. As a result of this questioning that spread over such a long time of 4 years, it was brought to light that the massacre was planned and organized and that it had been organized by the MIT on orders from the AKP government of the time. This has been documented in both the police inquiry and the prepared indictment.
But one month before the case was to start, Omer Guney was killed in prison and the launch of the case and the process for the massacre was prevented to this day. Omer Guney was thus silenced and other perpetrators of the massacre were deliberately obscured and left without consequence. Thus, the true criminals like Tayyip Erdogan, Mehmet Ali Sahin, Huseyin Celik and Hakan Fidan were protected. This is not the case, but let’s say the French state wasn’t powerful enough to prevent the massacre - is the current French administration also too weak to put the massacre on trial and punish the perpetrators? Clearly simple calculations of interest are preventing this from happening, and this dark stain on humanity persists. We want a stop to this, and invite the French administration to announce the rest of the perpetrators of the massacre and to put them on trial as per their responsibility.
As it is known, the January 9 Paris Massacre came at a time when a new dialogue process was starting in Imrali and meetings were held with Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Ocalan. In this way, it was the start and development of the dialogue process that aimed to resolve the Kurdish issue that was targeted. The massacre was perpetrated by fascist-genocidal powers that feed off of the Kurdish issue. It was an attack against the solution to the Kurdish issue. It was an attack against freedom and democracy. It was an anti-Kurdish and misogynist attack. All these characteristics manifested in an animosity against the PKK.
Leader Abdullah Ocalan said the bullets fired at comrades Sara, Rojbin and Ronahi were a continuation of the October 9 and February 15 plots and were perpetrated by the conspiracist powers. He said the conspiracy was renewed and continued through this massacre. It is very clear that the attack meant to sabotage the new dialogue process, to clear the path for Al Qaeda and ISIS attacks in the Middle East and to nip the resistance against them in the bud. If the conspiracist attack that started with the Paris massacre wasn’t stopped and the Kurdistan Freedom Movement didn’t continue to develop, the later resistance against ISIS attacks wouldn’t have happened and fascist gangs would have reigned in the Middle East.
An attentive eye would see that the attempts to renew the international conspiracy that started with the Paris Massacre continues today with similar attacks. The powers that committed the Paris Massacre continue to kill Kurds and women in all four parts of Kurdistan and abroad today. The fascist-genocidal attacks and massacres continue in Afrin, Botan, Dersim, Shengal, Maxmur, Bradost and throughout Kurdistan. Those who murdered Sara, Rojbin and Ronahi yesterday kill Avesta, Delal and Zeki today. Our party’s administration is targeted and our movement for freedom and democracy is attempted to be disbanded.
But our party, our people, Kurdish women and Kurdish youth have worthily upheld comrades Sara, Rojbin and Ronahi and managed to break the conspiracist attacks, void the plans for annihilation and disbanding and stop the conspiracists in their tracks with the struggle they developed in the six years since. The AKP-MHP fascism has been brought to the edge of collapse, fascist ISIS gangs have been completely defeated in Rojava, collaborationist politics in Bashur (South Kurdistan) have been rendered moot, and the existence of and righteous struggle for freedom by the Kurds have been promoted throughout the world, thus avenging the Paris massacre.
This struggle for vengeance continues now in the form of the victory lunge ‘Break the isolation and tear down fascism’ based on the new July 14 Resistance led by Leyla Guven. This victory lunge that aims to achieve free living and working conditions for Leader Abdullah Ocalan is spreading in every area and developing constantly, becoming the reality for a correct life in 2019 as well as determining the line of action. Our revolutionary struggle that developed on the basis of women’s freedom from Sara to Leyla is marching to victory with the ‘Break the isolation, tear down fascism’ lunge. 2019 will be the year of victory for this lunge, and our Paris martyrs will live on in this victory!
On this basis, we remember with respect once more comrades Sara, Rojbin and Ronahi on the 6th year of their martyrdom and call on women, the youth and all of our people to develop the ‘Break the isolation, tear down fascism’ lunge with strong actions wherever they live!”
