News from the Revolution in Rojava and Wider Kurdistan
The KCK has released a statement on the terrorist attack at the offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris yesterday. Below is the text of the statement.
TO THE PRESS AND THE PUBLIC OPINION
We vehemently condemn the assault and massacre conducted by the fascist thugs against the weekly satirical magazine as we offer our deepest condolences to the families and relatives of the victims, the French press, and the French people.
The fascist thugs, beleaguering all the peoples of the Middle East particularly the Kurdish people for long, have this time conducted a massacre at the heart of Europe, Paris. This massacre has aimed at intimidating the conscious public opinion of Europe. Those committing the massacre in Charlie Hebdo are the killers who have the blood of the Kurds, Yezidis, Arabs, Assyrians, Turkmens, Syriacs, and many other ethnic and religious groups on their hands . This fascist mentality enemy of peoples and cultures has grown in the dunghill of hegemonic forces and has become a thorn in the side of all humanity. The Kurds and the Kurdish Freedom Movement are carrying out the most determined and valiant struggle against these forces in the Middle East, particularly in Shengal (Sinjar) and Kobani.
We call on all the European peoples and on all humanity, along with the Kurds and the peoples of the Middle East, to step up their joint struggles against these fascist thugs enemy to humanity.
