15. ‘No problem’ if Damascus fights Turkey: Syria Kurds

16. Soccer: Turkey bans German-Kurdish player for life over ‘ideological propaganda’
30 January/Reuters
A German-Kurdish player previously convicted of support for Kurdish separatists in Turkey has been banned for life, the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) said on Tuesday. Deniz Naki, 28, was banned from all competitive games for three years and six months and charged 273,000 liras ($72,000) for “separatist and ideological propaganda”, the TFF said. Procedurally, any suspension longer than three years in Turkey constitutes a life ban, meaning Naki will not be able to play soccer in the country again.

18. Never Again, and Other Empty Promises
19 February/Washington Kurdish Institute
The international community has a remarkable ability to empathize with victims of tragedies. “Never Again” has become a calling card since the Second World War, an echo of an empty promise invoked every time another set of victims is produced. The world pats itself on the back as it comes together in a moment of collective horror at human cruelty. We sigh in unity, wipe our tears away, and declare that this will never be allowed to happen again. Wash, rinse, and repeat.

OPINION, COMMENTARY, ANALYSIS
1. KRG delegation arrives in Afrin as Turkey offensive softens Kurdish split
18 February/Al Monitor
Kurdish disunity is cited as one of the main reasons the world’s largest people without a country, as the Kurds are often described, still don’t have one. The Iraqi Kurds’ failed referendum on independence in September, which saw one group cooperate with Baghdad against the other, was the most recent and damning example of how a lust for power can trump the collective Kurdish good. So when a delegation of Iraqi Kurds from rival political parties arrived in the Syrian Kurdish enclave of Afrin to show solidarity with their cousins facing a Turkish siege, a groundswell of euphoria erupted.

2. The world’s most progressive democracy is being born. Don’t let it get strangled
12 February/CNN
We are only three weeks into the invasion of Afrin in Northern Syria by Turkey and their quislings in the Free Syrian Army, a dangerous turn for the Syrian civil war, and yet it no longer features on our front pages and television news.

3. Belgium’s supreme court reversal may open prosecutions of suspected PKK members
14 February/Middle East Eye
Belgium’s supreme court has overturned an unprecedented ruling by an appeal court that the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) is a party to an armed conflict rather than a terrorist organisation. The judgment on Tuesday by the Court of Cassation, which is Belgium’s highest court, is likely to be welcomed by Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who had strongly criticised the appeal court in September when it threw out the prosecution case against 33 Kurds living in Belgium and two Kurdish-language TV stations based in Belgium.

4. Turkey: International Observers Denied Access to Demirtas’ Trial As Arrests and Detentions Continue
16 February/International Law Bureau
Myself and the other international observers were in a sombre mood as we boarded the bus that would take us to the Sincan prison court so we could watch the trial of Selahattin Demirtas. This was due to developments in Turkey over the past few days  and most of us expected that, despite assurances given to us last December, we would not be granted admission to the trial.

5. Utopia disrupted: Turkey’s assault on Kurdish-held Afrin
29 February/New Internationalist
On 20 January, the Turkish state and pro-Turkish Free Syrian Army (FSA) troops launched a cross-border military operation on the majority Kurdish region of Afrin in north western Syria. This invasion into another country is a blatant violation of international law and happens with little scrutiny even as the international community watches. Moreover, this declaration of war  constitutes an atrocity against the same people that have formed the first line in the fight against ISIS fascism, while building a democratic, secular, gender-egalitarian shelter for all communities amid war.

6. Meet America’s Syrian Allies Who Helped Defeat ISIS
17 February/The new York Times
The large section of northeastern Syria once occupied by the Islamic State is now a rare safe area in the war-ravaged country, thanks to an American-backed coalition known as the Syrian Democratic Forces. The coalition’s fighters, who with American help drove the Islamic State from the region, are Arabs and Kurds, men and women, young and old. Many are veterans of multiple battles and have been wounded, but returned to the fight again and again. Here are a few of them.

7. When bully boys dictate the West’s agenda, Turkey invades Syria with impunity
31 January/Open Democracy
On 19 January, Kurdish people and their supporters stood outside the Turkish embassy in London denouncing Turkey as a fascist state because it had begun cross-border shelling of Afrin, a predominantly Kurdish area, in Northern Syria. An invasion was imminent. Sure enough, as expected, a day later on 20 January, Turkey invaded.  In London since then there have been demonstrations outside Downing Street, the Russian embassy, a march from the BBC to Trafalgar Square and a group of Kurdish women even occupied the Conservative Party HQ on 29 January to protest against the sale of arms to Turkey.

8. Kurdish-speaking anarchist forum (KAF): call for solidarity against the war
31 January/A-Infos
No to war, No to dictators and States, No to corporations, No to religions, No to nationalism! —- Dear Anarchist Comrades wherever you are, —- We, anarchists stress that we are against war, against military attacks and militias. We are strongly against killing civilians and launching attacks against villages, towns and cities killing innocent people discriminating and destroying their places. —- We believe neither any states nor any groups have the right to attack anybody else on the grounds of religion, nationality, land disputes and others. We believe whatever the justification is for attacking and launching wars are simply against freedom and humanity. —- Our attitude and position against the current war that the State of Turkey has launched on Afrin, the rest of Rojava and its citizens is not because we are Kurdish or Kurdish-speaking. We are against all wars as a matter of principle in all corners of the world.

9. Turkey’s attack on Afrin
15 February/Revolutionary Communist Group
On 20 January 2018 Turkey launched an unprovoked attack on Afrin in northern Syria when 72 Turkish jets bombarded towns and villages. This was followed with a ground invasion by the Turkish army and its Free Syrian Army (FSA) auxiliaries. By 26 January over 50 civilians were reported killed by Turkish shelling and air strikes. However, the predominantly Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and Women’s Protection Units (YPJ) mounted fierce resistance, inflicting casualties on the Turkish forces. Cigdem Dogu, of the Kurdistan Women’s Communities, warned that the war on Afrin would be Turkey’s Vietnam and end President Erdogan’s rule: ‘He has ordered his own death. It will be the will of the peoples who will fight and who will prevail, not his advanced technology.’

10. Kurdish Women Fighters: A Path Out of Patriarchy?
12 February/LSE Middle East Centre
Over the last three decades, tens of thousands of women have joined the ranks of the PKK and its affiliated organisations. What factors explain their violent mobilisation despite life-threatening risks? Building on a unique dataset of more than 9,000 militant bios and in-depth interviews with the families of militants, Güneş Murat Tezcür argues that gender inequality directly influences women’s decisions to take up arms, believing that doing so provides them with a path out of patriarchal gender relations. Recorded on 7 February 2018.

11. ROJAVA: ROAD TO KURDISH MOTHERLAND
17 February/The Pioneer
The long struggle of over 14.5 million Kurds for an independent homeland has reached a turning point as the ISIS ’ diabolical empire is on the verge of extinction in West Asia and “Rojava” or “the land where the sun sets”, an autonomous region in the Northern Turkey, is emerging as Kurds’ future country.

STATEMENTS
1. Statement to mark the 19th Anniversary of Abdullah Ocalan’s abduction.
15 February/Peace in Kurdistan Campaign
The 15 February 2018 marks another year since Abdullah Ocalan lost his freedom. It is now 19 years since Turkey abducted and detained the Kurdish leader.
Over the intervening years Ocalan has become a living legend; his status and influence have grown considerably despite his imprisonment and isolation.
Physically he has been denied a voice and isolated, removed totally from all contact with the world and his people, refused even the briefest private communications with his closest family.
Turkey has sought to destroy the movement by destroying the man. Both these aims have failed utterly.
Ocalan’s influence has indeed grown year by year. The longer he is detained the greater his influence and strength. Despite Turkey’s attempts to have him silenced, he has given a voice to the Kurds, a voice which has grown ever louder.

2. On the 19th anniversary of his abduction we demand: Freedom for Abdullah Öcalan. International Initiative
15 February/Peace in Kurdistan Campaign
What is happening in Afrîn at the moment?
The Turkish army together with jihadi mercenaries has invaded the North Syrian canton Afrin. Afrin was one of the few regions in Syria where there was no fighting. Now the Turkish army is massacring defenders and civilians in violation of international law and human rights. The European states are silently approving of the invasion.

DOCUMENTS
1. THE ATTACKS ON AFRIN TARGET WOMEN’S LIBERATION AND DEMOCRATIC ALTERNATIVES
12 February/Peace in Kurdistan Campaign
On the night before January 20, 2018, the Turkish military and its jihadist allies jointly attacked the Afrin canton. The Turkish army calls this war of aggression “Operation Olive Branch” and claims to defend itself from attacks. International lawyers disagree and in fact, the opposite is the case. In 2017 alone [see attachment 2: chronology of Turkish attacks on Afrin 2017], the Turkish military attacked the area around the northwestern corner of Syria at least dozen times with artillery in order to provoke a war. In this sense, the beginning of the attacks on January 20 was not unexpected but rather planned long ahead of time.

2. War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity, in Flagrant Violation of the Rules of International Law
The security requirements of public order are not inconsistent with the rules of international law, which governs the conduct of public and military operations. However, such laws cannot be invoked to justify security-related acts if human rights and the sovereignty of a state are violated, especially by neighbouring countries. Respect for the rules of international law during armed conflicts requires all states concerned to implement these laws to contribute to the cessation of unjustifiable hostilities.

3. Defend the People of Afrin Platform Letter Delivered to New Scotland Yard on 14 February 2018
16 February//Peace in Kurdistan Campaign
It is an appalling injustice that the Kurdish community in the UK is being subjected to severe harassment under Terrorism legislation through night raids, port stops, questioning by MI5, and disproportionate and violent policing of demonstrations, despite the tireless campaigns that we have organised over the years against ISIS terrorism.

EVENTS
1. SOLIDARITY WITH JAILED KURDISH MAYORS AND COUNCILLORS! DEFEND LOCAL DEMOCRACY IN TURKEY
More than 100 elected mayors have been imprisoned in the mainly Kurdish south-east of Turkey. It’s part of an attack on the rights of local people, in a region of more than 6 million, to democratically control their local authorities: a right enshrined in the European Charter of Local Self-Government, to which Turkey is a signatory. This usurpation of democracy was not even approved by the Turkish Parliament. Instead President Erdogan used emergency powers to issue Decree No 674, amounting to a de-facto annulment of the 2014 local elections..
