“Afrin must not fall”
“This is, what Rovaja stands for: An progressive alternative to the hell capitalism, torn by his escalating inner contradictions, is descending into”, according to author and journalist Tomasz Konicz.
Author and journalist Tomasz Konicz spoke to the ANF about the Turkish state’s invasion operation against Afrin that has left one month behind amid intensifying clashes.
Describing Rojava as a beacon of hope in a region devastated by the unraveling crisis of late capitalism, Tomasz Konicz remarked that in the present dark ages of disaster capitalism, when fascism and Islamism seem unstoppable, the revolution in Rojava is proving that the descent into barbarism is not inevitable.
Konicz underlined that there can be a progressive post-capitalist alternative achieved, the reign of fascism can be averted, barbarism, embodied by the Islamic State, can be defeated.
“This is, what Rovaja stands for: An progressive alternative to the hell capitalism, torn by his escalating inner contradictions, is descending into.”
Konicz stressed that the attack on Afrin, which is intended by the Erdogan-Regime as the beginning of the war against Rojava, is a fascist attempt to destroy these alternative forms of society, that are taking shape in Rojava.
According to Konicz, “Not just Turkey, the regimes of the whole region are afraid of the possibilities of direct democracy, of inclusive self rule, that is able to transcend not just nation states, but also the borders between faith or ethnic identity. Turkey, Iran, the Assad-Regime: They are afraid of the sparks of the revolution, spreading from Rojava to the whole Region.”
Konicz stated that; “Herein lies the crucial importance to the revolutionary struggle in Afrin an Rojava. It is a juncture, on which the future transformation of the whole region can be shaped: Revolution or barbarism?
Hence: Afrin must not fall!”
