The struggle of life is the consciousness of leaders
The peoples who have not yet lost their sense of freedom, i.e. have not internalized slavery, reach a stage where they will no longer recognize any obstacles after years of overcoming the breaches of will and ideas that have arisen through years of strict despotism.
In fact, society and freedom are two subjective phenomena in human life that complement each other.
Our Chairman said: “It is a correct statement to say that the more a society has concentrated in terms of intelligence, culture and spiritual power, the more vulnerable it has made itself to liberty. Again, it is fair to say that the more a society is deprived of this intelligence, reason, and cultural values, the more slavery it experiences. In this sense, it is appropriate to define freedom as a force for social construction.”
With his statement he justified the statement that freedom is not only the main purpose of human societies but also of the universe. While the main pillar and sine qua non of sociality is attaining liberty, to give up the death penalty or be discouraged, whether by mental or physical slavery, is tantamount to gaining freedom.
Furthermore, even definitions such as individual freedom are deceived by the deception of capitalist state systems. The freedom of the individual goes through the freedom of society. In particular, in recent years, the mentality “I have no problems, I’m at home, I’m at work, I live my life, I’m cultivated, I eat and drink, I don’t harm anyone” has been consciously tested and developed.
Above all, one must realize that this logic plays into the hands of governments and serves to abandon the reality of free people. The individual who does not ground himself in his society is no longer himself. Not protecting one’s own social values means isolating oneself from this society. This self-isolating individual type is vulnerable, disposable, usable, isolated, subject to state exploitation, chewed between the molars of fascism and consumed.
This situation that individuals find themselves in today has been used by societies throughout history as a method of punishment. In other words, if an individual in society seriously harms that society and does not improve, he is excluded from society. Being outcast was the ultimate punishment for a person because it was tantamount to being left to die.
Today everything is turned upside down by capitalism. The person has been deceived by the lie of individual freedom and placed in a trap that will isolate themselves. Now individuals are pulling their own rope, which means fascism is succeeding in a short and easy way.
When individual liberty is emphasized in a place, there is state policy and that means that both individual and societal liberty are directly targeted. In other words, a person (particularly a Kurd) who says: “I have no problem with anyone who does anything, I have no problem”,is in a position that is fully supported by state politics and yet it is the most dangerous position. In fact, this person has no more society that could save him from the fascists, annihilation, massacres and looters of the Turkish state and condemned himself to complete defenselessness. Because she turned her back on herself and his company, cheated on herself or was made to do so.
Every individual who makes up society must firmly believe in the power of society and sociality. In the realm of humanity everything has a character that can be destroyed, comes and goes. All structures, including states, are the intellectual product of the power and material interests of a group of people. Society is the existence of humanity, it has an unshakable power, it is the essence. For this reason, the enemy first tries to disperse society and sociality, and to separate individuals from their social values. From this, everyone should be able to clearly draw the following conclusion; The only fear of any power structuring is that of organized society and sociality. State capitalist systems are like a deflated balloon. They are visible to the eye when filled with people for the purpose of air.
Her only remedy is not to leave a single person behind who could bother him from the outside. Because it is inflated and extremely sensitive. People in that bubble think the whole world is made of that stuff. But the real free world is outside of that. The state is afraid of the phenomenon of society, society’s reflexes, because they know and believe in their power. Then, on the contrary, it is essential to our freedom that we as peoples and the individuals who make up those peoples see, recognize and experience that power. In other words, going back to the beginning, no power can stand against an organized society. Victory will definitely be won by a freely organized society.
There are many examples of this around the world.
While the constant struggles could win victory among these examples, those who were short-term, one-sided, fragmented, without strategy, without aim, or without faith scattered.
Especially after 1945, revolutionary people’s organizations emerged in almost every country in the world. From Latin America to Asia, Africa and the Middle East, national liberation wars and revolutions have followed one another, hundreds of experiences have evolved and influenced each other. Serious armed movements emerged even in western Europe and the United States, and national resistance developed in Ireland, the Basque Country and Corsica.
- Especially to Cuba and Vietnam;
- Tupamaros in Uruguay;
- National Liberation Army in Venezuela;
- Revolutionary Left Movement (MIR) in Chile;
- ELN in Bolivia;
- FSLN in Nicaragua;
- Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front in El Salvador;
- FARC, the Founded in Colombia in 1965 and still exists today, as well as the ELN,
- PAICG in Africa led by Amilcar Cabral in Guinea-Bissau;
- FRELİMO organization by Samora Machel in Mozambique;
- ZANU in Zimbabwe;
- MPLA led by Agustino Neto in Angola;
- NPA in Philipines;
- Naxalites in India;
Likewise, the revolutionary centers formed in Palestine formed, notably the PFLP, the People’s Fedayeen Organization in Iran, Yemen, Oman, Morocco, Sri Lanka, Nepal, the Philippines, Indonesia and Laos.
While each of these examples has a different uniqueness to it, all have organized against state power and achieved victory by using guerrilla tactics against armies and states. The resistance of the Kurdish people also has its own specifics and especially for more than forty years these specifics have been analyzed by our chairman and the front of the revolution as a whole has been opened.
Like almost all other world revolutions, this revolution was also led by the guerrillas with great success and is being implemented increasingly today. Whether urban guerrillas or people’s defense units, and urban warfare, which is one of the most important pillars for carrying out the revolution, are the basic duties of all of us as human beings. For this, on the one hand, the rural-based guerrilla warfare is developed and intensified, while at the same time it is necessary to make the motivation of the war tangible in the cities and to be a practical force, a supporter of this war of liberation. The most fundamental pillar to break the enemy are the cities, that is, it is the heart of the enemy who aims to live in prosperity within the borders of his own state by banning war from his country.
Being aware of our responsibility as Kurdish youth and people to organize ourselves in the form of cells without expecting anything from anyone is the second of the concrete duties of the people in the revolutionary people’s war. In the face of enemy attacks in Northern Kurdistan, every conscious and organized person is a natural member of the YPS. A people organizing for a common social purpose has largely won the war. Even the sense of the existence of this organization has a deterrent effect on the enemy. Today, the Rojava Revolution and the YPS War are themselves examples being explored and inspired by all the oppressed peoples of the world.
As Kurdish people and other peoples living in Kurdistan, we have had serious experiences of urban warfare. In particular, the resistance to self-government that developed in northern Kurdistan between 2015 and 2016 is a serious legacy for us. Starting from this heritage, by drawing the necessary conclusions, the organizational model as completely hidden cells in villages, neighborhoods and cities should be taken as the basis, which is the organizational language and form of this process. Every human being who has this awareness has a second or third person that they can trust. Not being able to trust anyone or trying to create an atmosphere of complete distrust is also hostile politics.
Organizing is an act of reproduction. The cell is a professional illegal reproduction. A person who truly understands freedom and has a great passion for it can certainly organize another person. Our people have serious experience in this matter. They know who wants what, who can be treated how, who can be included in these secret organizational structures, and who is striving for it. For each purpose, the individual finds another individual or two nearby, organizes, and turns into a cell. The cells are independent of each other and completely hidden.
They are in the system, but the system does not know them at all. They are purely civilian, but at the same time they are the vanguard of the revolution, of the revolutionary people’s war. No one else around can tell they are cells because they have never exhibited a deficit in the way they move in their normal lives. It’s actually a military structure, but they’re careful not to lose their old civilian look. let’s think about it; The existence of just one or two or more such cells in each neighborhood will determine what role they will play in city wars.
Today the Kurds and the revolutionary democratic people are present everywhere in Turkey. This means that there is a concrete basis and condition for these cell structures not only in Kurdistan, but in all Turkish metropolises. If everyone acts at the point of forming their own cells, total structuring means forming a secret people’s war revolutionary army within the system, right next to the enemy, that is, in the areas where the enemy is most vulnerable.
In this process we must give up our search for a central organization, throwing off the legal shell and our habits. Our common goal is liberation. Ordinary latent cells derive their perspective from the already developing process. In addition, these cells, which organize themselves everywhere without knowing about each other, naturally ensure cooperation with their practices in the sense of common goals. These cell organizations, which are essentially YPS, will also organize their society with the practices that we will open later in this article, and they will become the vanguards of exposing the reality of societal resistance against Turkish fascism.
I want to emphasize again; Just as our first duty as a people in the people’s revolutionary war was to become clear in consciousness and in struggle, so another duty is to organize.
