February 18th and 19th in Paris
Internationalism is brotherhood of peoples!
Our only solution against the imperialist attacks is the unity of people!
We want justice!
It is everybody’s natural right to live honourably like a human.
As Bertolt Brecht said: “Justice is the bread for the people”.
However, imperialism is a big obstacle to this.
It divides people, breaks them into pieces, and has them fight each other.
This way its policies come to life.
We, anti-imperialists, established our own front against imperialist policies.
The imperialism in Europe brings poverty, crisis, and aggression against people.
The imperialism converts the world into a pool of blood.
Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Afghanistan, Palestine, are some of the examples.
Palestine is an enormous open-air prison.
Nevertheless, its only friends are the people of the world.
We must unite our forces against the imperialist attacks on the people of the world.
“Imperialism has laid its body over the world, the head in Eastern Asia, the heart in the Middle East, its arteries reaching Africa and Latin America. Wherever you strike it, you damage it, and you serve the world revolution.”–Ghassan Kanafani
The only solution is internationalism.
Internationalism is the brotherhood of people of the world.
Internationalism is the single heart, single breath, and the single fist against imperialism.
“Justice is the bread of the people
Sometimes is plentiful, sometimes it is scarce
Sometimes it tastes good, sometimes it tastes bad.
When the bread is scarce, there is hunger.
When the bread is bad, there is discontent.”–Bertolt Brecht
Imperialism feeds on blood and injustice.
AKP’s fascism makes the people of Turkey spit out blood.
Revolutionaries, people’s lawyers, artists, engineers and artists that resist this tyranny are facing prison sentences that reach hundreds of years.
There are 1605 sick prisoners in Turkish prisons, out of which, 604 are terminal.
150,000 public workers were laid off by decree.
The people are being imprisoned by testimonies of secret witnesses, false evidence and declarations.
The drug dealing gangs that poison the youth are roaming free, but those that fight them are in the prisons…
There is even more injustice in Turkey.
For this reason, two revolutionary prisoners in Turkey, Sibel Balaç and Gökhan Yıldırım have laid their bodies to the death fast.
For this reason:
Let’s unite in hunger
Let’s unite in joy
Let’s sing our songs together
Let’s dance together
Let’s unite our struggles
For two days at the festival we’ll deal with the problems of raids against the people, and the issues that prisoners experience.
Here we will talk about the facts against the lies of the imperialist media.
Grup Yorum, the voice of the oppressed people, will be both a panelist and will perform a concert. It will also present its new motion movie “Mahalle” (“Neighbourhood”).
Theatre Companie de Joli Momes will perform, and İbrahim Kızıldogan’s caricatures will be on exhibition.
Let us unite against injustice in this festival, let us unite our demands for justice, let us become a single heart and mind in the struggle for justice. All oppressed people of the world, progressive forces, and revolutionary organisations–let us unite our demands for justice.
Let’s unite, let’s wage struggle, let’s triumph!
