Turkish hostility towards Kurds can not be explained with PKK or YPG or other Kurdish freedom fighters. It goes back to Ataturk' plan of building nation state for Turks only. He tried to create it with Turkish minority and the Kurds were only nation/people who would not accept it
When Ataturk launched his racist Turkish nation state plan, Kurds have opposed this anti-democratic dictatorship and he started to deny Kurdish existence after S.Said rebellion (1925). Ottoman was not Turkish only but mix of all nations in Balkans, Caucasus, Mid east and Anatolia
Turks were minority in Anatolia, as Ataturk himself is not Turkish just as Hitler not having German blood. He called himself the god of new nation and oppressed all non Turkish muslim and non-muslim minorities. Muslim minorities accepted to convert by force by Kurds were natives.

Here's an updated thread of what to do as a westerner if you're worrying about another Turkish invasion of Syria.

#DoNotAbandonRojava #StopTurkeyDefendRojava #Twitterkurds #Syria #Rojava #DFNS #DefendAfrin #SDF #YPG #YPJ #QSD
The last few weeks have really underlined just how quickly the situation on the ground can change. Although the immediate disaster may have been averted, we should take this as a reminder to always be as organised and prepared as possible.
The US intervention has been nice, and it's allowed the liberation of North and East Syria to go much faster. That's saved countless lives. But the US was always an unreliable ally, and the current administration has never had a consistent or coherent policy on Syria.

As we all know, our sweet Florent has left this earth.  Flo was a loving father, husband, son,brother and friend.  Florent touched our lives every day with his comical post, witty sense of humor and not to mention the debates. 
gofundme.com/7w3c7n-for-the…
Florent would have never wanted to leave his son Ari nor his wife Mel. We as his extended family or friends have decided a long with his family that Ari and Emela need our help.
If its for Ari’s bday, holiday, or just food or clothes. We can help. If Mel wants to buy shoes or a coffee, we can help.  

Flo didnt ask for much. Flo was there for everyone and now it’s our turn to be there for Flo.

#IranUpdate,
#PKK's Iranian branch(#KODAR-#PJAK) published their project for future of #Iran.Mostly is theoretical arguments taken from Abdullah Ocalan's books about history, politics,revolution&democratic nation.
Here are the bullet points: 1/5
*PJAK wants "the rights of all nations in Iran(Fars,Azari,Kurds,Ahwazi Arabs,Balouch etc) in a democratic Iran to be guaranteed&rejects any independence efforts.
*PJAK claims US & Europe want to turn Iran into another Syria which PJAK wants to stand against such efforts.2/5
*PJAK slams reformists/moderates for misleading people and accuses them of being a power thirsty mafia and nothing else.
*PJAK believes those who are asking for a referendum[ such as reformists&Monarchists,@PahlaviReza] want to have a share of power rather than changing Iran.3/5

#THREAD, #IranUpdate
This statement is very important.PKK's Iranian branch is the most organised opposition group inside Iran followed by other Kurdish parties,Ahwazi Arabs(3 MOG),Balouchis(mostly underground but very organised called SAHAB).1/10
Azari people who are mainly organised by NGOs(based in uni&abroad)but they may find support in possible changes in Iran by Turkey and Azerbaijan.
The difference between these groups is that PKK's branch(PJAK)has a significant armed forces positioned inside&outside of Iran.2/10
PJAK's forces are positioned inside Iran as you can see in this img, and also have bases inside Iraqi Kurdistan used for training, media etc.
This statement doesn't belong to PJAK. It is the PKK who designs PJAK's strategy and in most cases its tactics. 3/10
