Three of our comrades became immortal and three Kurdish patriots were wounded in the armed attacks on the Ahmet Kaya Cultural Center and two Kurdish workplaces in the French capital, Paris.
This attack was carried out as part of the Palace’s new offensive concept, on the anniversary of the 9th January attack in which Comrades Sakine, Fidan and Layla were murdered. It does not matter who the gunman is or where he comes from. The target is the Kurdish woman, the revolution. The perpetrator is the Palace regime, the colonial dictatorship under Tayyip Erdoğan that is escalating the war against the Kurds and organising genocide.
France is a base for MIT assassins and foreign counter-guerrillas. It is France who did not explain the 9th January Massacre and kept the details of in the dark. It is a collaborator of the Palace regime. France is also responsible for the massacre that took place today in broad daylight.
French Interior Minister Darmanin had the audacity to say – without research – that the ‘attacker was racist, but the attack was not political’. However, President Macron dismissed his own minister’s official statement by saying ‘the Kurdish community was targeted in Paris.’ The French police, who did not take precautions or prevent the attack, attacked the people who wanted to protect their wounded and their institutions at the Ahmet Kaya Cultural Center in the aftermath of the massacre.
The palace regime insists on implementing the concept of attack and war in Turkey, the four parts of Kurdistan and also in Europe. Although it has been implementing a collapse plan for seven years, the palace regime, which has itself reached a state of collapse, is organizing for civil war. In Turkey and Northern Kurdistan, fascist state terror and counter-guerrilla attacks are increasing. Mass killings, alongside detention-arrests are taking place. Airstrikes on Rojava are becoming more frequent and the Palace regime is waiting for the green light for a ground offensive. In Southern Kurdistan, it is waging its war of occupation with all its might, including with the use of chemical and tactical nuclear weapons.
In Europe, in collaboration with its allies, the European bourgeois states, it criminalizes the Kurds and uses them as blackmail material, such as in the case of Sweden’s application for NATO membership. But this is not enough! The Palace regime brings war and genocidal attack to Europe. The European bourgeois states are close collaborators of the Palace junta in this war.
We can repel these attacks only by making the common struggle grow by relying on our own strength. Those who turned the streets of Paris into an area of ‘serhildan’ (Kurdish: uprising) tonight have shown the path that will be taken.
Our condolences go out to the patriotic Kurdish people, the women of the world, the families of those who have become immortal, and all of us.
We call on all our friends and comrades to rise up against the Paris massacre and the new wave of attacks and sieges of the palace regime, to hold them accountable, and to protect the wounded and those who have become immortal.
Let us unite our rage in the streets!
The massacre of Paris will be held to account!
