Dear brothers and sisters in struggle,
During the last months you have been the light against the darkness.
You have been the hope against the fear.
You have been the dream against the nightmare.
Your heroic fight, your unprecedented struggle against the terror of ISIS is one of the greatest stories of pride and resistance throughout history. The brave Kurdish fighters, all the courageous men and women of Rojava and Kobane have taught us that you can never surrender even when the odds are against you.
You have been the spotlight of the struggle against the murderers of ISIS, those who hate the cornerstones of your communities. Freedom, Democracy and Justice. You fulfilled a mission for all humanity. Your victory is not just a military one. Your victory is a political one. Day by day, your pride, your comradeship, your thirst for freedom, was rising above the missiles, the bullets, the guns.
We salute your tremendous victory. We, along with the Greek people, will be standing by your side in your next big struggle. The struggle to rebuild your city, your homes, your communities, your lives.
Dear brothers and sisters of Kobane, always remember the words of Hikmet: “However and wherever we are, we must live as if we will never die”
Her yer Kobane. Her yer direniş
