International organizations protest the KDP

International organizations reacted to the KDP's targeting of the Kurdish Freedom Movement and its cooperation with the Turkish state.

Many international organizations signed a written statement to slam the practices of the KDP.

The statement said, "For months, the ruling party of Southern Kurdistan, the KDP (Barzani Party), has been preparing for a war with the PKK on hypocritical pretexts. It is clear that the KDP, in close cooperation with the Turkish intelligence organization MIT paves the way for an occupation war against the Kurdish freedom movement.

Deployment of military forces serves the purpose of encircling the Kurdish freedom movement from different directions and cutting its connections with the outside world.

KDP provides intelligence to Turkey

The statement also included the following statements:

"The KDP deployed military units at the 'Qendîl Gate' in the Zînê Wertê region and caused the Turkish air forces to bomb the guerrilla positions in the region.  The siege of the Gare guerrilla area in the Medya Defense Zones with heavy weapons by the KDP's special forces led to the Turkish army's attacks on the strategic border region of Heftanîn and Bradost, Xinêre, Goşine and Helgurt regions. Turkish Air Force’s attacks proves that the KDP provides direct intelligence to Turkey.

In addition, since October, the Iraqi government and the KDP have taken concrete steps to establish dominance over Shengal's autonomous Yazidî region and disperse self-defense forces.

All these developments show that war preparations are carried out in a coalition and with the approval of various counter-revolutionary forces. The Turkish state mobilizes all its means to destroy the PKK, break the will of the Kurdish people for freedom and attack the achievements of the Kurdish people, especially women. The imperialist USA, which renewed its hostility towards the PKK by calling for the arrest of PKK leaders in return for a reward on November 6, 2018, also supports any plan to weaken the Kurdish freedom movement. Colonial states in the region also approve of attacks against the PKK, which is one of the most important anti-imperialist dynamics of the region and thus a threat to capitalist and imperialist rulers. Therefore, the attacks against the PKK in Southern Kurdistan pose a great danger to the freedom struggle in the region.

The KDP, which rejects the efforts of the Kurdish people for national unity and ignores all calls for tranquility, is provoking a new Kurdish civil war that will spread all over Kurdistan with its treacherous cooperation with the fascist Turkish state. The KDP betrays the Kurdish people's rightful demands for freedom and self-determination.

It is necessary to remove these plans and organize international solidarity with the Kurdish people.

We call on the KDP to stop its war preparations and cooperation with the fascist Turkish state immediately!

We call on all freedom-loving people in the world to take action against any attacks against the Kurdish people and freedom fighters all over Kurdistan!"
