Quelle: Support Kurds in Syria, die Free Syrian Army als Handlanger der Hegemonialpolitik der Türkischen Republik:
Two armed groups said to be affiliated to the Free Syrian Army suffered heavy losses on Monday when clashes broke out between these groups and People’s Defense Units (YPG) forces in the West Kurdistan city of Serêkaniyê. The armed groups attacked the people in the city as they took to the streets for the rally organized by the Supreme Kurdish Council.
According to reports received, bodies of 14 dead members of these groups were delivered to their side by YPG forces, while at least 12 others are reported to have been killed in clashes which are reported to have lasted all day. Among those killed are reportedly three leaders of the El Sam armed group, Ali Aksud, Mecid Abdullah and Fair Haci Rahim.
The operation launched by the YPG in the area is reported to be still on.
YPG members Xalid Ömer Hamo (31), Salah Eyo ?exo (40) and Ehmed Sîno Qewas (29) and Kurdish security forces member Sileman Sino (28) lost their life in clashes.
Since hundreds of members of Free Syrian Army entered the city over Turkey on 8 November, the city has been bombed several times by forces of the Syrian regime, killing at least ten civilians and wounding around 70 others in the last one week. Around 50 houses were demolished in the attacks which forced eleven thousand people migrate from the region.

Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: The SOHR fears for the life of detained opposition leader Abdelaziz al-Khayer
The fate of Dr. Abdelaziz al-Khayer, deputy chairman and head of the foreign affairs office at the Syrian National Coordination Body for Democratic Change (NCB), is still unknown after a month and a half detention. He was abducted by the Syrian Air-force Intelligence while on his way back from Damascus International Airport on 21/9/2012, returning from a political trip to China as part of an NCB delegation; 2 other members of the NCB were detained with him: Maher Tahan and Eyas Ayash.
Abdelaziz al-Khayer is a longstanding and prominent figure in the civil and democratic opposition movement in Syria. Born in 1951 in the city of al-Qurdaha, he has been wanted by the Syrian authorities since his time at the university in 1976, when he joined the banned Communist Labour Party. From 1982 he went underground in Syria evading arrest for his political activity, only to be caught in 1992. He was only sentenced 3 years later by a military court to 22 years imprisonment for belonging to a banned political organisation and for ‘weakening the revolutionary spirit of the nation’; this is considered the longest sentence for a political prisoner who did not advocate violence. Abdelaziz, a medical doctor by practice, spent his time in the Seidnaya military prison assisting the sick and injured, because political prisoners had no right to medical treatment and where furthermore tortured by the authorities. After 14 years of detention Abdelaziz al-Khayer was released in 2005, mainly due to international pressure calling for his release.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights voices its fear that the Syrian security services might have executed Dr. Abdelaziz and his two colleagues Maher Tahan and Eyas Ayash. We are concerned because the authorities have refused to admit that they have the 3 men in its custody and has attempted to blame armed groups for the kidnapping.
We hold the Syrian regime and its security services complete responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of Abdelaziz al-Khayer and his two collegues. We demand that they be immediately released.
The regime’s regular use of arbitrary detention, and the rising number of civilians being tortured to death while in custody, means that all forms of legal international pressure need to be taken to ensure the wellbeing and freedom of Abdelaziz and his colleagues, as well as all political prisoners in the basements and prisons of the Syrian regime. We consider the lives of these brave people to be sacred, and we refuse to see their freedom used as political chips in the halls of great powers.

Statement regarding the detention of Ahmad Al Israwi, member of the NCB
The Press Office of the National Coordination Body for Democratic Change has released the following statement: Statement regarding the detention of Ahmad Al Israwi, member of the NCB
Syrian security forces have done the cowardly act of arbitrarily detaining our colleague Ahmad Al Israwi this afternoon, Sunday 8/7/2012. Ahmad is a member of National Coordination Body for Democratic Change’s Executive Bureau. He was taken away from the architect’s union in Reef Dimashq. Mr. Al Israwi was part of the NCB delegation to the conference of the Syrian opposition in Cairo a few days ago, his efforts were crucial for the success of the conference.
We at the National Coordination Body for Democratic Chance strongly condone this cowardly act by the Syrian regime, we hold the regime full responsibility for his mental and physical wellbeing.
We condemn the arrest of Ahmad Al Israwi and hold the Syrian authorities fully responsible for his physical and mental. We demand the disclosure of his fate. We demand he be released immediately.
We at the National Coordination Body condone the inhuman and irresponsible acts of the security services. We respond to their actions by saying: Arresting our members and threatening us will not hinder our work for the Syrian people’s revolution for freedom and dignity.
Freedom For Ahmad Al Israwi! Freedom for all political prisoners detained by this oppressive regime! Freedom for Syria!

gefunden auf Support Kurds in Syria: PYD-Assad Clashes Raise Doubts about Alleged Syrian-PKK Cooperation, hier ein Auszug:
„… Clashes between the pro-PKK Democratic Union Party (PYD) and supporters of Bashar Al-Assad’s Syrian regime on a few occasions in the past few months with the latest on May 9 in Aleppo – have raised doubts over claims made by rival Kurdish groups and Turkish newspapers that the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) cooperates with Assad. The PYD says the Assad regime is trying to drag the Kurds into a civil war with Arabs.
Dr. Harriet Allsop, an expert on Kurdish-Syrian affairs, says that the clashes began after pro-Assad members of the Baggara tribe threatened Kurds and fired bullets into the air in the market. “When news of this spread in the Kurdish community, they went to the homes of the Arabs responsible and fighting began between them. The PYD became involved at this point in support of the Kurdish groups against the Baggara. They established control over the area and set up checkpoints.”
In the end, exiled Baggara chief Sheikh Nawaf Ragheb Al Bashir made a statement to pro-PYD Ronahi TV, pledging their weapons to the service of the Kurds.
PYD foreign affairs representative Dr. Alan Semo told Rudaw that the party opposes the Syrian regime as it has been a victim of its brutal oppression. He suggests that “provocative attacks” by the Syrian government led to the clashes between PYD supporters and Syrian security services on Feb. 15, when Syrian air force intelligence services tried to protect a pro-regime informer from Kurds who had ordered him to leave. In this clash, an air force intelligence officer was killed and Assad’s security forces attempted to kidnap the son of PYD leader Salih Muslim.
Not every expert agrees that this rules out a PYD-Assad alliance. Denise Natali, a Minerva Fellow at the National Defense University, told Rudaw that the PKK is taking advantage of the political vacuum in Syria to advance its cause, even if this means making concessions to Assad. “The clashes between the PYD and Syrian forces do not diminish the PKK alliance of convenience with Assad against Turkey. It also shows the fragmentation within Kurdish political groups,” Natali said.
Kurdish activist Shoras Habas told Rudaw that Assad had tried to motivate the PYD to extend their control over Qamishli by intimidating activists from the rival Kurdish National Council (KNC), which receives support from Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani. KNC member Fuad Aliko accused the PYD of being responsible for the clashes between Kurdish groups. But the PYD rejected these claims as “baseless allegations” and pointed out it wants to work with the KNC. …“

Die Quelle der nachfolgend dokumentierten Erklärung ist Solidarité Ouvrière … ansonsten hier noch der Hinweis auf die täglich aktualisierte Berichterstattung zur Lage in Syrien auf Support Kurds in Syria:
Message to Syrian People
The crimes of Bashar al-Assad’s regime and in particular the horrific scenes of massacre of the people and children in Houla deeply hurts any human being. We embrace you and deeply share your unbearable sadness. Humanity will never forget the atrocities of the Assad regime, neither your heroic struggle.
We too are struggling head on with the most heinous supporter of the Assad regime: the Islamic Republic of Iran, which has continued its crimes for the past 33 years. Witnessing the atrocities of the Assad regime sharpens and intensifies the struggle of the people in Iran against the Islamic Republic, which is one of your greatest enemies too.
On behalf of the members and sympathisers of the Worker-communist Party of Iran and on behalf of the people of Iran, I sincerely wish you victory in your struggle against the dictatorship in Syria and for a just, equal and free society. We will not spare any effort in supporting your struggle for freedom.
Chair of the Executive Committee of the WPI

Interview with Abdalaziz al-Khair, leading figure of the National Coordination Body for Democratic Change, Syria, gefunden auf Support Kurds in Syria, hier ein Auszug:
Abdulaziz al-Khair was a leading member of the Communist Action Party. He was persecuted and had to live underground for more than ten years. He was arrested and tortured in 1992, sentenced to 22 years and released in 2005. In 2007 he participated in founding the “Left Assembly”, which included the Communist Action Party, the Kurdish Left Party, the Body of Syrian Communists, the Marxist Democratic Assembly and the Coordination Committee of the Members of the Syrian Communist Party – Politburo.
„The true left in the region and the world has been with the Syrian people and their interests all along. The problem were always Stalinist parties or Soviet satellites. For them, the main criterion is the regime’s position on international conflicts. Whereas leftist principles say that the priority in defining the position towards states and parties should be according to their policies towards their own peoples. We have our critical historic view of this “leftist” deformation. We consider it to be one of the causes for the defeat of the international left which had been established according to the Soviet model while others unfortunately consider it “political realism”. In terms of its emergence, the CWP belongs to the New Left. This left, critical to Stalinism, appeared at a decisive moment in the late sixties of the last century. We remain faithful to this project.
The Syrian regime was actually to the left of the Arab regimes in general, concerning the national issue as well as in some social issues. But often this was only the surface of politics but not in depth. Although being very pragmatic, the regime for its own benefit was eager to remain in this position within the official Arab range. As the whole Arab scene shifted to the right, the Syrian regime without hesitation shifted with it, but was keen to stay on the left wing at the same time. It made continuous efforts to maintain good relations with Latin America, China and other Asian countries to use these relations when it needed them.
This situation changed with the beginning of the current popular revolution, especially when the repressive practices of the regime became obvious. What we see is the core of the regime’s policy which it has been practicing secretly for decades. Its foreign policy, admired by some leftists and patriots, was used as a cover. They were deceived, but as the truth comes to the light of day, the regimes looses its friends and allies one after the other. They are joining the ranks of those who see the necessity to respond to the people’s demands.

International Workers’ Day 2012. The people demand unionized workers!
In the upcoming demonstrations of the united left, the Independent Union WAC Maan and the Daam workers’ party, call for peace, equality and social justice, and demonstrates in solidarity with the popular Arab uprisings, particularly the heroic revolt of the Syrian people.
The Independent Trade Union WAC Maan and the Daam workers’ party, call on their members and supporters to take an active part in the demonstrations and marches of the united leftwing and workers’ organizations, which will be held to mark May Day (International Workers’ Day) in Tel Aviv on May 1, in Haifa on April 28, and in Jerusalem on April 27.
We are happy that for the first time in years, the forces on the left together with workers’ organizations have united to march together under the banner, “The people demand unionized workers.” Despite some differences of opinion, it is clear that all the groups marching to mark May Day agree on the need to step up the struggle against the extreme rightwing government of Benjamin Netanyahu. We aspire to a united front which presents an alternative social political agenda.
Arab and Jewish activists from the WAC Maan will join members of Da’am, the Workers Party, to call for peace, equality and social justice. As a Jewish-Arab workers’ organization aiming for revolutionary change, we dedicate this year to the Arab uprisings, especially the Syrian revolt. The Syrian people are rising up to demand freedom, justice and peace, and to bring down the dictator who butchers his citizens mercilessly. In the May Day marches, we will also convey a message of solidarity to the young Egyptian revolutionaries and the Egyptian workers who did the impossible and brought down the tyrant Mubarak. We will strengthen them as they work to complete the aims of the revolution.
Our main target is the anti-worker, rightwing and warmongering government of Israel. On May Day this year, we emphasize the call to bring down Netanyahu’s government, because:
Netanyahu’s government leads destructive economic social policies. For many years, even before his latest election as prime minister, Netanyahu has promoted privatization of the public sphere and dismantled the social security net. Israel has become a paradise for tycoons and hell for hundreds of thousands of precarious workers. Today, most Israelis understand that the transfer of natural resources and public services to capitalists has led to poverty, violence and the unraveling of the social fabric.
During the last three years, Netanyahu’s government and its extreme rightwing coalition have passed a slew of racist laws against the state’s Arab citizens. It is currently promoting a program to destroy dozens of Arab villages in the Negev Desert, preventing the development of Arab towns, and increasing hatred and racism.
Netanyahu’s government is responsible for the deadlock in the peace process, which is liable to deteriorate into war. Its policies are based on the strengthening of the settlements in the occupied territories, the rejection of any compromise with the Palestinians, and the creation of an artificial crisis with Iran. The rightwing government, whose foreign minister is the fascist thug Avigdor Lieberman, challenges the international consensus on the need to withdraw to the pre-1967 borders and the need to establish an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
A demonstration in Kufr Qara
In addition to our active participation in these events in the three main cities, WAC Maan together with Da’am – Workers’ Party will organize a demonstration in Kufr Qara on Saturday May 5, in solidarity with the Syrian people who are rising up against the regime. We call for unconditional support to the Syrian people’s popular uprising and with all the Arab people’s uprisings against oppression and exploitation, and for freedom and social justice.
Long live May Day! The people demand unionized workers!
Long live the social protest movement!
Long live the Arab Spring!
Long live the Syrian uprising!
Workers of the world, unite!
Join us as we march in red, the workers’ organization WAC and the workers’ party Da’am!
