" Kendal was well aware of the danger, like all of us, but that did not lessen his determination. When he left, he asked me, " Wish me luck ! " Not for fighting against the Turkish army and the Islamists, but to successfully pass under the radar of the Syrian regime that prevented us to get to Afrin." ---- Libertarian Alternative reproduces the posts of the blog Kurdistan-Autogestion-Revolution where, after Arthur Aberlin, engaged in the YPG, now expresses Damien Keller, engaged him in the International Liberation Battalion (IFB). ---- Over the weeks, he will testify to life in the IFB, the debates that are going on and the evolution of the revolutionary process in the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria. ---- Canton of Cizîrê, February 22 ---- We learned two weeks ago the death of our comrade Özgür Seyit Karakoçan (Kemal Serhat Akyol Nicolas), killed by a bombing of the Turkish army on September 4, 2017. This young Kurd of 21 had left Paris to defend freedom peoples before his 18 th birthday to defend his people against the fascist Turkish state in the mountains with the guerrillas of the PKK and in Sinjar and the Rojava against the fascists Daech.

Our comrade fell as a martyr to defend the democratic society under construction in Rojava, based on feminism, ecology and direct democracy.

A tribute was paid to the premises of the CDKF in Paris:

On February 10, 2018, our comrade Kendal Breizh (Olivier) fell in battle following an air strike by Turkish aviation against the position of YPG he occupied on the front of Cindirêsê. Another internationalist from the Spanish state, Baran Galicia (Samuel), was also killed during the bombing.

Coming from Brittany [1], Kendal Breizh joined the YPG and participated in the liberation of the city of Raqqa and the region of Deir ez-Zor from the YPG International battalion.

Like Kemal, he joined the revolution in Rojava because, with democratic confederalism, she defends a vision of society other than what we can know in the West.

This revolution is thus opposed to what against Kendal struggled in France: capitalism and Jacobinism of the French state. Indeed, he also campaigned for the independence of Britain, the self-determination of his people, subject like those of the Basque Country, Corsica or Alsace, the centralism and the bureaucracy of the French state.

YPG had put forward for their video on the international volunteers who choose to brave the 2 e army of NATO and bombs to continue to defend the ongoing revolution in northern Syria. It was on this occasion that I had the pleasure of meeting him, during the three days of interval between my two attempts of passage for the canton of Afrîn.

He was happy to be able to continue fighting the enemies of the revolution, to fight the Turkish state and the fascists who make up his army.

Kendal was well aware of the danger, like all of us, but that did not lessen his determination. When he left, he asked me, " Wish me luck ! " Not for fighting against the Turkish army and the Islamists, but to successfully pass under the radar of the Syrian regime that prevented us to get to Afrin.

Our comrades Kemal and Kendal were both victims of the complicity of the French state.

Complicity because it persists in keeping the PKK on the list of terrorist organizations, and Emmanuel Macron recently described the YPG-YPJ as " potential terrorists ". This conviction comes from the fact that the French State prefers to maintain good relations with a trading partner than to defend the peoples fighting for their self-determination.

Not surprisingly, it is also a French tradition to consider separatist activists and activists, including those from the colonies of the French state, as terrorists.

That's why Kendal bet on his detention on his return. He had nothing to do with it;

Kemal, in the mountains of Kurdistan.
In the same vein, the French State today retains a dangerous position regarding the Turkish State's offensive on the canton of Afrin, even if the victory of it would lead to a reimplantation of the jihadists in the region. region.

The fight of our martyrs is ours, we will continue it regardless of the States or the fascist forces against us.

Long live independent and socialist Brittany !
Bevet Breizh dizalc'h ha sokialour !
Bijî Bretanya serbixwe u sosyalîst !

Long live the self-determination of peoples and internationalism !
Bevet an emdidermenañ ar pobloù ha ha etrebroadelouriezh !
Bijî xwediyarkirin gelan u navnetewetîyî !

Martyrs never die !
Kenavo Kamalad !
Sehîd namirin !
