The Confederation of Kurdistan Communities of Germany (KON-MED) has issued a statement regarding World Kobanî Day, which takes place on 1 November: “The Rojava Revolution is our common revolution, its defense is our common responsibility”.
KON-MED noted that Kobanî has become the symbol of free and democratic struggle and the symbol of victory against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in the autumn of 2014. It additionally stated that the “Democratic Autonomous Administration model has not only spread to large areas in northern Syria since that day, but has become a source of inspiration for all forces of democracy working for a just world”.
KON-MED appealed to people to join their public actions: “Our people should celebrate the anniversary of the glorious resistance of Kobanî in all four parts of Kurdistan, in the seven continents of the world, and especially in Germany, under the spirit of national unity. As KON-MED, we call on the people of Kurdistan in its four regions to unite and we call all democratic, left-socialist and revolutionary friends to join the struggle on 1 November, World Kobanî Day, and call out in solidarity: “The Rojava Revolution is our common revolution – Its defense is our common responsibility”.
