PKK Statement on the YJA-STAR and YPJ : International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women was also marked by hundreds of guerrillas on the mountains of Kurdistan in Behdinan yesterday.
Speaking at the gathering in Media Defense Areas, KCK (Kurdistan Communities Union) Co-Presidency Council member Sozdar Avesta said that 25 November was a symbolic day to say stop to violence against women, adding that;
“Still, we know the meaning of this day very well. We are sharing the pain of the Mirabal sisters of the Dominican Republic. We are also suffering from violence. Our pain is still very fresh and young girls in Kurdistan are every day falling fighting against fascism and male violence.”
“Three sisters of ours were murdered in the Dominican Republic. And today, 12-15 people from the same family are being massacred in Sinjar. No conscience, no mindset, no moral, no feeling nor spirit can accept this. All these murders were perpetrated by the same fascistic approach”, Sozdar Avesta said, describing the Sinjar massacre as the heaviest blow inflicted on women in the 21st century.
Remarking that the Sinjar attack aimed to destroy a culture and faith, KCK Co-Presidency Council member pointed out that Sinjar was a deliberately aimed target, and that the plan was however defeated by the resistance of tens of thousands of people on the Mount Sinjar.
“A gender egalitarian life had been maintained in Mesopotamian lands for thousands of years. This communal and free life has always been considered sacred by the Kurdish society and humanity”,
she said, underlining that the state destroyed this gender egalitarian system and built a grim system of exploitation instead. She remarked that this ignored sacred system is being rebuilt through the resistance being mounted today.
“Through the struggle it is waging, the PKK is once again revealing the disappeared and disregarded truth in the Middle East”,
Sozdar Avesta emphasised.
Avesta said it has been proved once again in Sinjar and Kobanê that the PKK movement has advanced under the leadership of women who became an army on Kurdistan mountains 21 years ago.
Avesta ended by stressing that;
“All the women demanding freedom and democracy should know that YJA-STAR and YPJ will always continue their existence as the defense force of women in these lands. Following the path of Zilan, Beritan, Viyan and Arin comrades, we will continue to be the guarantor of the women’s freedom.”

57 women murdered in North Kurdistan in 2014

ANF – AMED 25.11.2014
Human Rights Association (IHD) Amed Branch has disclosed the ten-months report of 2014 on the violation of women’s rights, violence against women and femicide in North Kurdistan territory.
According to the report, 57 women were killed in Eastern and Southeastern Anatolia regions in the first ten months of 2014.
The report was disclosed to public by Lawyer Hatice Demir, member of the IHD Amed Branch Women’s Commission, who recalled that violence against women was a human right violation and a form of discrimination against women, because of which women all around the world are suffering from physical, sexual, psychological and economic violence, and are even losing their lives.
Remarking that the political authority in Turkey uttered debate-generating remarks over the women’s body, Demir pointed out that government authorities made statements that remain behind the times and go so far as hate speeches against women, such as how many children they should give birth to, whether pregnant women should go out or not, or have an abortion, how they should dress up, whether they should raise a laugh in public or not, whether they should give birth to the baby of their raper, whether student girls and boys can share a house or not, and even proposing the ending of coeducation. Demir said that such remarks and speeches led to social gender inequality, created a perception against women and make them a target for many attacks.
Demir also criticized that judicial measures failed to protect aggrieved women as is required, emphasising that more and more women are suffering from serious incidents of violence as courts rule abatement of sentence -on the grounds of instigation by women-in the cases of rape and sexual abuse, relevant authorities fail to conduct effective investigations and to take the necessary judicial measures in order for the protection of women from violence. Demir also called attention to the increasing number of women killed across the country every day.
IHD Amed Branch Women’s Commission member also called attention to the situation of Êzîdî, Assyrian, Kurdish, Arab and Turkmen women who were abducted and subjected to inhuman treatments by the barbarian ISIS gangs in Mosul and Sinjar. She recalled that the ISIS gangs are targeting the women who are protecting their own people and lands and giving a fight for freedoms and human rights in Kobanê, adding that the gangs also continue committing rape, sexual abuse and killing in front of the eyes of the world.
Demir continued, highlighting as IHD women the following demands in order for the elimination of violence against women;
* Legal arrangements must be made in line with the proposals of women’s associations and human rights organisations regarding all works serving the purpose of elimination of violence against women. Cooperation must be formed with all relevant women’s associations and NGOs.
* Required legal and other actions must be taken in order for the protection of women from violence.
* Mobbing against women in public area must be ended immediately and judicial mechanisms must launch effective investigations into the cases of mobbing.
* Courts must end the unfair instigation abatement in the cases of rape and sexual abuse against women and femicide, and rely on the statements of the victimized women.
* All international states and human rights organisations, the UN being in the first place, must manifest a determined stance in order for the elimination and ending of violence against the women in the areas occupied by ISIS gangs and others under threat of occupation.
Demir’s statement was followed by the disclosure of the ten-months report of 2014 on the violation of women’s rights, violence against women and femicide in North Kurdistan territory.
The figures highlighted in the IHD report are as follows;
* 1 woman killed, 10 injured/subjected to violence, 1 other raped by security forces
* 10 women killed, 5 others injured/subjected to violence as result of domestic violence
* 9 women killed, 8 injured/subjected to violence, 6 raped, 8 others sexually abused as result of violence in public area
* 25 women committed suicide, 4 others attempted
* 8 women lost their lives as result of suspected deaths
* 4 women died as result of honour killings

Harper Government Embraces Nazism? Canada Votes against UN Resolution Condemning “The Glorification of Nazism”

Global Research, November 27, 2014

Canada’s embrace of Nazism should come as no surprise to conscious Canadians.
We are still reeling from the successful “renovation” of our indigenous Progressive Conservative Party, which has now been transformed into the extremist CPC government, dominated by its Prime Minister, or, as many would say, its Crime Minister, Stephen Harper.

Most recently, Canada distinguished itself by voting against a U.N resolution condemning the glorification of Nazism. No doubt CPC apologists will use any number of convoluted rationalizations to approve the decision, but such a vote remains antithetical to what Canada should be.
Other external manifestations of the fascistic CPC government – and the courtesan corporate media’s suppression of the truth – are manifest in the government’s unequivocal support of a Nazi-infested illegal regime in Kiev, Ukraine.

According to Robert Parry in “A Shadow U.S Foreign Policy”, ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych won the election in 2010 “in balloting viewed by international observers as fair and reflecting the choices of most Ukrainian voters”.

However once Yanukovych refused a closer association with the European Union through “trade agreements” and “economic reforms” his legitimacy became a mere obstacle to overcome.

A “shadow government”, funded by the West, including Canada, triggered violent protests, the massacre at Odessa, and the on-going slaughters to this day, as Kiev tries to conquer all of Ukraine at the behest of the West and its agencies, including International Finance Institutions (IFIs) such as the IMF.

Suppressed evidence shouts that the Kiev junta’s unapologetic core is Nazi. The following is a list of neo-Nazi politicians, their Nazi affiliations, and the key positions they control in the junta government:

Andry Parubiy: Secretary of Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council. Parubiy founded the Social National Party of Ukraine, a fascist party styled after Hitler’s Nazis. Eventually, the Social National Party became the neo-fascist/neo-Nazi Svoboda party.
Oleh Tyahnybok: Leader of Svoboda

Dmytro Yarosh: Deputy Secretary of National Security. Leader of the Right Sector, Yarosh oversees the armed forces with Parubiy. The Right Sector includes the far right Patriot of Ukraine group and the paramilitary UNA-UNSO. Members parade in uniforms bearing far-right insignia, including the wolfsangel.

Oleksandr Sych: Deputy Prime Minister. Sych is a member of the Svoboda party.

Andriy Mokhnyk: Ecology Ministry. Mokhnyk is Deputy Head of Svoboda.

Ihor Shvaika: Agriculture Minister. Shvaika is also a member of Svoboda.

Oleh Makhnitsky: Acting Prosecutor General. Makhnitsky is a Svoboda member.

Western media paints Russia’s Vladimir Putin as the villain because he clearly understands the internal machinations of the NATO warmongers and acts accordingly, to protect Russian interests.

Putin knows that the Soviet Union suffered grievous losses during the Second World War in its valiant fight against the Nazi war machine. He has not forgotten, but the West, including Canada, apparently has.

Canada’s internal and external policies increasingly demonstrate our true colors: we have become agents for extremism, terrorism, and imperial warfare. And we have forgotten the lessons of World War Two.

The CPC government’s proclamations to the contrary ring hollow.

Imam Khamenei: US Will Lose The Most If Nuclear Talks Fail, Not Iran

Local Editor

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei praised the efforts done by the Iranian delegation taking part in the nuclear delegation between the Islamic Republic and the West.

As his eminence met with a group of officials of Basij (Volunteer) Force on Thursday, Imam Khemeni stressed that America is the one who will lose the most if the nuclear talks fail.

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei
Both Iranian nation and the negotiating sides must know that “if the talks fail, the one who will lose the most will be the Americans not us.”

He said that the entire Iranian nation will stand up to excessive demands as the Islamic Republic engages in nuclear negotiations with six world powers.

“In the [nuclear] negotiations, if sensible things are said and fair and wise arrangements are made, we will agree to them; but, Iranians, from the top all the way to the bottom [of social strata,] from the masses of the people to all its officials, will stand up to excessive demands,” Ayatollah Khamenei addressed the participants in the gathering.

His eminence noted Iran “opposes America because it is hegemonic and arrogant state.”

On Monday, Iran and the P5+1 countries -- the United States, Russia, China, Germany, France and Britain decided to extend their discussions for seven more months.

They also agreed that the interim deal they signed in the Swiss city of Geneva last November will remain in place during the course of the negotiations until July 1, 2015.

Kurds vs. ISIS: Who is defending Kirkuk’s frontline?

Peshmerga forces deploy to repel any possible ISIS attacks from Mekteb and Halid regions in Kirkuk, Iraq on November 26, 2014. Anadolu Agency/Ali Mukarrem Garip
Published Thursday, November 27, 2014
In a two-part series, Al-Akhbar English examines the mobilization and alliances, as well as challenges, emerging between various Kurdish factions as they confront the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The first part explored the prospect of establishing aunited Kurdish army. The following is the second of the series, in which Al-Akhbar English interviews Havel Kani, a PKK field commander based at the outskirts of the Iraqi city of Kirkuk.
Security is tight at the checkpoint entering Kirkuk on the Kirkuk-Baghdad road. Cars and trucks form parallel lines for several hundred metres, as the police proceed to search every vehicle. The city’s security forces fear that Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) bombers may infiltrate the city and carry out attacks, as happened on August 23, 2014, when three simultaneous car bombs killed 15 people and injured 60.
“All main roads coming from the south and west into Kirkuk have been closed to traffic save the Kirkuk-Baghdad road. This is to avoid car bombs and IEDs [improvised explosive devices],” according to Aso Mamand, member of the PUK political bureau in the city.
He adds that the Iraqi Kurdish pershmerga have been shouldering the responsibility for the city’s security, since the Iraqi army dissolved in the face of ISIS’ advance.
“Kurdish cooperation has increased remarkably due to the fight against the Islamic State. There is a strong feeling of solidarity among Kurds and this is a very positive development. However, it is the peshmerga who are leading the fight here. The PKK has offered to help, but they are present just in symbolic numbers.”
Al-Akhbar English drove down the Kirkuk-Baghdad road to the village of Matara, along the frontline with the ISIS. Black flags can be seen fluttering in the wind on the other side of the front, about 1.5 kilometres away. The entrance to the Matara base is manned by peshmerga forces, but dozens of PKK fighters can be found resting from their shift at the front, drinking tea and smoking.
Heval (‘comrade’) Kani is from Kobane. He joined the PKK in the 1990s and spent years in the organisation’s stronghold in the Qandil Mountains. He is one of the PKK field commanders at the Kirkuk front.
Al-Akhbar English: How strong is the PKK presence along the frontline in Kirkuk?
Heval Kani:The PKK has 200 fighters in the Kirkuk region. From their positions, the PKK guerrillas conduct reconnaissance operations behind enemy lines, as well as joint attack operations with the peshmerga. They are deployed as snipers in the first line of defence, while the peshmerga are positioned in the second line with heavy artillery. [This was confirmed by a Kurdish activist who had been to the trenches]. The attack group goes behind enemy lines while the second line of defence provides cover with heavy artillery.
Moreover, the PKK is training able-bodied men and women in the villages along the frontline to defend themselves. Villagers are instructed on how to prepare defence positions and organise shifts for village guards.
Al-Akhbar English: What degree of cooperation is there between the PKK fighters and the peshmerga forces?
HK: As you can see, we share the same premises with the peshmerga: both forces are present in this base. Operations and logistics are organised jointly, and so is the planning, when roles and duties are assigned to the different formations. During an operation, PKK and peshmerga forces have a joint command. For example, two commanders for the former along with two others from the latter. Of course, each commander is responsible to communicate orders to their men, but decisions are taken jointly.
The peshmerga have bigger numbers and heavy weaponry, whereas the PKK operates in very small guerrilla groups of five fighters each, equipped with light weaponry. We don’t need big numbers to be effective, as we are trained in guerrilla warfare. All we need are people committed to the cause. You see this poster? Our comrade Merwan Gezgor had been injured in one operation and, rather than being taken prisoner by ISIS, he blew himself up with a hand grenade.
Al-Akhbar English: Where else is such cooperation in place?
HK: In Makhmour, the PKK has increased its presence and works along with the peshmerga in the same way as in Kirkuk. Along the frontline with IS, we are present with hundreds of fighters. In Shangal, we are organising the so-called Shangal Defence Units by training the local population so that they are able to defend themselves.
Actually, during ISIS’ assault on Shangal, we were able to dispatch forces there in such a quick and effective manner because we have been planning for such an eventuality since 2007, when the then Islamic State in Iraq struck Shangal with suicide bombings. We later offered help to the KDP and the PUK, but they assured us that that wasn’t necessary because all security measures were in place. Now things have changed significantly.
Al-Akhbar English: In what way?
HK: The military cooperation on the ground between different Kurdish groups has created a new atmosphere of optimism and solidarity within the Kurdish camp. This is part of the reason why calls have been renewed to hold a National Congress, which could become a permanent structure, a ‘Kurdish authority’ (marja’iyakurdiya) that would create a joint strategy and defence policy, along with a joint Kurdish defence force. Such a force could be called upon to defend Kurds in all the four parts of Kurdistan, if need be.
Al-Akhbar English: If that is the case, why are Kurdistan Regional Government’s (KRG) officials downplaying the PKK’s presence here?
HK: This subject is very sensitive for the neighbouring countries, such as Iran. [In informal conversations, another PKK commander confirmed that the group had withdrawn its fighters from Khanaqeen and Jalawla due to the proximity to the Iranian border.] Likewise, to be fair, there are still divisions within the Kurdish camp, where some disagree on the creation of a joint defence force, as they are attached to their narrow political interests. Creating this joint structure won’t be easy, but this is our long term strategic aim and we’ll continue working for it. This is also a form of struggle. People are ready, but politicians aren’t.
Al-Akhbar English: If you create a joint force for Kurds, how are the other peoples in Kirkuk, for instance, going to react?
HK: The force should not only be Kurdish. It should be open to the other components of society. In Kirkuk, there are many different peoples, and all should be allowed to participate via the creation of defence units. For example, in Rojava [Syrian Kurdistan], the People’s Protection Units (YPG) have been formed and their name says it all: they are the people’s, not the Kurds’.

Jews For Justice For Germans!!!

November 27, 2014  /  Gilad Atzmon

Yesterday after publishing my expose of Max Blumenthal's recent Goy hatred rant, I became aware of a new Facebook Community: Jews For Justice For Germans.

For the first time in my life, I regretted giving back my 'J certificate.' (not)

If there is one Jew I fully admire, it must be Paul Eisen, the man behind JFJFG!!!

Here is a conversation between Paul Eisen and myself in my dinning room.

Stung by Russia Sanctions, Europe Fears Losing Business to China

Robin Emmott (Reuters)
  • EU exports to Russia fall sharply after sanctions imposed
  • Companies need export permits that take time
  • Companies worried about losing business to China, others
BRUSSELS, Nov 26 (Reuters) - At a technology fair in Moscow last month, European executives faced the new reality of doing business in Russia since the West imposed sanctions: the number of companies at the international showcase had shrunk by half from a year ago.

Europe is the big loser in the ongoing sanctions war
Europe is the big loser in the ongoing sanctions war

"The impact on business couldn't be clearer. Fewer stands, fewer companies," said Mark Bultinck, a sales executive for Belgian digital screen maker Barco, which had a booth at the annual expo for the audiovisual industry.

The impact of the sanctions was already clear to Barco.

The company lost Russia's biggest shipbuilder as a client when the United States and the European Union blacklisted United Shipbuilding Corporation in July, meaning Barco could no longer sell screens to the company for its vessel training simulators.

Barco's experience shows how sanctions are having a broad impact not just on Russian companies but on European ones too and at a time when Europe's weak economy can ill afford it.

The European Union and the United States imposed economic sanctions on Russia in late July, targeting the Russian energy, banking and defence sectors to punish Moscow's support for rebels in eastern Ukraine, the West's toughest steps yet.

As EU governments consider blacklisting more Ukrainian separatists and potentially more Russians and companies over the crisis in Ukraine, anecdotal evidence and new EU data show the economic costs for Europe of pressuring the Kremlin.

In August, the month after sanctions were imposed, EU exports to Russia fell 19 percent to 7.9 billion euros ($9.91 billion) compared to July, a loss of almost 2 billion euros, according to the EU's statistics office Eurostat.

Although the data is not adjusted for seasonal swings, exports were also down 18 percent compared to August 2013 at a time of year that is traditionally busy for exporters.

The drop partly reflects the food ban Moscow imposed on the European Union in August in response to the West's sanctions. But it goes well beyond that. Total EU exports fell 12 percent in the first eight months of this year compared to a year ago.

In August, EU exports of machinery and transport equipment such as cars and tractors fell 23 percent compared to July. Compared to a year ago, those exports fell 21 percent.
Manufactured exports fell 16 percent across the 28-nation bloc in August. Germany, which accounts for one-third of sales to Russia, saw a sharp drop in sales of those goods, while Italy's manufactured exports tumbled by almost half.


The sanctions are having such an impact because EU companies can no longer sell civilian goods that could also have a military use, no matter how small, without a licence.

Tractors, cranes, excavators and mechanical parts that are needed to repair cars and trucks all fall under the so-called dual use category and need a permit.

Failure to obtain a licence can bring a fine of up to 10 percent of the total value of the exported goods, officials say.

But obtaining such licences can delay exports by two to three months because so many more products need licences and customs are suffering a big administrative burden.

"There are delays caused by the increased flow for individual licences," said Tristan Grimmer, a lawyer at Baker & McKenzie in London, who helps companies navigate the process.

"With the oil and gas sector, much of what is being addressed previously did not require export licences, so you have an entirely new sector that is asking for licence authorisations to supply the Russian market."


One official at the Strategic Goods Control service for Belgium's Flanders region said the number of applications for licences had jumped by almost 40 percent since August and officials were flooded by emails from companies seeking advice.

"Everyone wants their file to be urgent. But it is not only in our hands. Sometimes we need certification by the Belgian embassy in Russia," said the official, who declined to be named.
In Germany, lawyer Baerbel Sachs at Noerr said that it was difficult to even get customs officials on the phone to discuss progress on a permit because so many people were calling.
Efforts are being made to hire more staff and speed up the process, governments say.

Britain's Export Control Organisation says almost all licences are issued within 60 working days.

But even in that time, companies are at risk of losing contracts to competitors from China and elsewhere, according to Frank Schauff, chief executive office at the Association of European Businesses in Russia.

"Countries that have not imposed sanctions are able to jump in where the EU has left a gap," said Schauff. "The economic position that the European Union has in Russia is at risk and it is very difficult to gain that back if it is lost."

Beijing's envoy to Berlin said in October that China would seize business opportunities in Russia.

At Belgium's Barco, the company says it can still do business in Russia, but only up to a point.
"You know that certain deals are no longer possible," said Carl Vanden Bussche, the company's director of investor relations. "It is a reality that we need to take into account."

syrian army
Baalaa:  This village is in the Al-Nishaabiyya Farms area.  Yesterday, the SAA advanced 2 kms inside this formerly Nusra enclave and killed 7 of the 30+ rodents inside.  Monzer reports over 10 taken prisoner.  Weapons and ammunition smuggled in from Jordan were seized for use by our NDF in killing Wahhabists.
Muhammad Jameel Sittu
Akram Hishaam
Bahaa` Al-Taweel
No other names were sent.

Zibdeen Farms:  The SAA is pursuing remnants of the packs of rodents who once infested this area:

Daarayyaa:  SAA now controls 90% of this suburb and continues to clean up at the Sukayna Shrine where 4 rodent snipers were killed yesterday.

Jawbar:  At the Al-Manaasher Roundabout, intense fighting for territory.  SAA now controls over 50% of Jawbar and destroyed the equivalent of 25kms of interlaced tunnels and trenches built by the rats in an effort to forestall the inevitable extermination of their numbers.

Misraabaa Village Southeast of Harastaa:  Intense fighting with NDF playing a very important role.  No details.

Harastaa:  The SAA attacked Al-Sabeel Quarter near the Al-Hassan Roundabout west of the Secondary Roundabout and killed an undisclosed number of vultures.

Jisreen in the Kafr Batnaa area:  About to be completely deloused.  Watch carefully developments here.

Zamalkaa:  Weapons and ammunition depot invaded by security forces who seized all contents and delivered them to the NDF for use in killing Wahhabist criminal heretics.

Mayda’a:  ‘Alloosh has got to be feeling blue.  He just lost 55 of his favorite vermin in an incredibly inept effort to escape the SAA as brand new and newly retooled tanks and infantry assaulted their positions here.  When their nests came under intense artillery fire, they wanted to leave their positions which is exactly what the Syrian Army commanders wanted.  With infantry moving into fixed locations, as though choreographed by Balanchine, rat leaders ordered their rodents to flee in the direction of Al-Dhumayr.  Well, at Al-Dhumayr there is a large contingent of SAA and NDF which was waiting for them.  With SAAF also in action in the skies, the rats tried the usual suicide truck trick.  The truck didn’t even get 100 yards before a Sukhoi turned it into magma along with its hapless driver.  So far, MI has counted 55 dead rodents in a catastrophe most appropriate for the idiot Saudis who are pulling the strings for the hapless Jaysh Al-Islam.     
An exclusive photo from the scene at Mayda’a 
Hawsh Al-Dhawaahira Farms:  On the border of Doumaa Farms where ‘Alloosh is hiding.  The SAA assaulted a nest of rats belonging to Jaysh Al-Islam and killed every one of them.  All told, SAA killed 11:
‘Abdul-Jabbaar Hamawi
Mustafaa Naqrash
No other names were sent. 

Al-Reehaan:  More fun with ‘Alloosh and the Jaysh Al-Islam (yawn).  This is northeast of Doumaa which is under 70% SAA control.  The SAA killed 4 last night and took 12 prisoner. 

Al-Jarbaa and Al-Bihaariyya in the Al-Nishaabiyya area:  2 rodents killed. No names.

Qalamoon:  The Nusra rats continue to exploit irregular methods of entering Syrian from Lebanon.  Irregular?  Indeed.  The only problem is that the SAA knows all the routes and has placed hundreds of NDF, SAA and border security personnel at those places.  With excellent intelligence coming from the Lebanese side, its just a turkey shoot.  Yesterday, scores of rats from Nusra and ISIS were annihilated coming into Qaarra’s foothills.  Fighting also reported at Al-Mushrifa, Al-Jaraajeer and Waadi Meeraa.
