Solidarity with the youth militia in Rojava

At the heart of the Middle-East, peoples of Rojava (Syrian Kurdistan) have risen up against reactionary forces oppressing the region since decades. Since the Revolution, Rojava is a self-governed Region in wich the entire population including all minorities is involved in the council system. The youth participated from the beginning in the revolutionary construction of society as well as in the military defense of the revolutionary process. While the youth movement in the municipalities and people’s councils independently organized the youth and gave them their own will and voice, tens of thousands of young women and men poured into the ranks of the People’s and Women’s Defense Units YPG and YPJ and performed heroic resistance to the attacks the Islamist killer gangs from Al-Nusra through DAESH to the Turkish army and allied mercenaries. In addition to the People’s and Women’s Defense units, civilian militia members have also been building the societal defense forces HPC since 2012. These are to take the defense and security of their neighborhoods and villages into their own hands, educate the people ideologically and militarily and, in the event of war, also give heavy blows to the enemy on the front and in the hinterland. A central characteristic of the bourgeois state are always formations of centralized armed forces that can secure the power of the rulers. Municipal militia organization, decentralized security forces and people arming are the best means to break the power of the state once and for all and also to prevent a relapse of the revolutionary process into centralist forms of rule. Each community should be empowered to satisfy its own security needs. As part of this social militia organization, women and youth have set up their own autonomous associations. The youth militia, the armed wing of the organized youth (Tevgera Ciwanên Şoreşger a Sûriyê) organizes itself here under the roof of the society defense forces since 2016 as HPC Ciwan, often named as Parastina Ciwanan. In 2019, the youth militia asked the Red Help International for a mutual campaign for the procurement of Celox, a hemostatic bandage for military usage. Before, we could deliver Celox bandaged to Inernationalists fighting in Rojava and to the women’s units in Shengal. The great success of these campaigns has led the youth militia to initiate this campaign. This direct support with medical supply is an expression of internationalism.

Let us fight this struggle together! Support the purchase of Celox bandages for the youth militia in Rojava with a donation.

About the youth militia The revolutionary youth movement in Rojava and northeastern Syria has taken on an incomparable pioneering role since the first day of the uprising. As the most dynamic part of society, it was the youth movement that, even in the days of occupation, organized the first self-defense units in the underground and made the necessary preparations for the overthrow. Even before the YPG and YPJ Defense Forces were created as a revolutionary People’s Army, it was small groups of youth organized in the self-defense committees who took over the protection of their neighborhood and their villages. The youth participated from the beginning in the revolutionary construction of society as well as in the military defense of the revolutionary process. While the youth movement in the municipalities and people’s councils independently organized the youth and gave them their own will and voice, tens of thousands of young women and men poured into the ranks of the People’s and Women’s Defense Units YPG and YPJ and performed heroic resistance to the attacks the Islamist killer gangs from Al-Nusra through DAESH to the Turkish army and allied mercenaries. The youth and women’s movements are the central driving forces of the revolution and ensure, with their autonomous organization, the preservation of the revolutionary line. In addition to the People’s and Women’s Defense units, civilian militia members have also been building the societal defense forces HPC since 2012. These are to take the defense and security of their neighborhoods and villages into their own hands, educate the people ideologically and militarily and, in the event of war, also give heavy blows to the enemy on the front and in the hinterland. A central characteristic of the bourgeois state are always formations of centralized armed forces that can secure the power of the rulers. Municipal militia organization, decentralized security forces and people arming are the best means to break the power of the state once and for all and also to prevent a relapse of the revolutionary process into centralist forms of rule. Each community should be empowered to satisfy its own security needs. As part of this social militia organization, women and youth have set up their own autonomous associations. The youth militia organizes itself here under the roof of the society defense forces since 2016 as HPC Ciwan. The militia organization is not a military force in the strict sense. What distinguishes it is that it is a civil organization that is created on an honorary / voluntary basis. All members participate voluntarily, out of a sense of responsibility towards one’s own society and in connection with the revolutionary process of militia work. Most of the work takes place in society, ranging from checkpoints, to guard tours, to visiting families and organizing folk education, because self-defense must first and foremost be ideological. Against the subtle attacks of the capitalist system on society and especially the youth, such as drug trafficking, prostitution, agentism and much more, is primarily fought with educational work and education. The most important thing is and remains the organization of society, the more organized and united a society is, the stronger its defense against any external and internal attack. In day-to-day security tasks such as checkpoints and tours, the youth coordinates with the Asayish security forces and works closely with them. Furthermore, one of the main tasks of all militia units is to organize military training, especially for young people, to prepare society for a possible war. Education is regularly organized and young people are taught basic defense skills. The most important thing is that the militia grows out of ordinary people, acts according to the needs of people and never acts separately from the general organization of society. Every member of society defense forces, whether general, youth or women, must be an active member of his / her community and participate in society. Strengthening and expanding the system of self-government is still the most important defense work, for as much as it succeeds in involving people in the revolutionary process so that they regard this revolution as their own, they also have their place in the defense of their achievements taking. The concept of Revolutionary People’s War, as developed by Reber Apo, is based on this realization. Social construction and military defense always have to go hand in hand and can only succeed together. To rely only on classical forms of centralized army will not be able to stop a besiling state like the fascist Turkish republic, because only the armed people themselves can do this, nor will it be the process of overcoming the state, patriarchy and class and building a free one To be beneficial to life. If the people in the communes manage their neighborhoods themselves, produce in the co-operatives in town and in the countryside together and under their own leadership, then they must also have the means and the power to take the defense of all that into their own hands, As in all structures of the revolution, the youth is responsible in the first place and is prepared to stand against any threat. Already in the resistance of the epoch, in the defense of Afrin, militiamen of the youth movement took their place in front of the regular units and in the defense against further occupation attempts of the Turkish state the youth will play their role.
