Autonomous Administration: Kobane victory is a legacy for the whole world and humanity

The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria called for Turkish occupation to be stopped, saying “The liberation of Afrin, Serêkaniyê and Girê Spî is as important as the liberation of Kobane.”

The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria issued a written statement on the occasion of the 6th anniversary of the Kobane victory over ISIS.

The statement includes the following:

“ISIS gangs became a great danger for the whole world and humanity after occupying vast territories in Syria and Iraq and proclaiming the city of Raqqa as capital of its so-called Caliphate.


The resistance mounted against ISIS gangs in northern and eastern Syria was an epic one. The North and East Syrian resistance was a response to the threats ISIS posed against all Syrian and world peoples. The Kobane resistance, which resulted in victory on January 26, 2015, was a turning point in the fight against ISIS. After this date, ISIS started to collapse. The peoples of North and East Syria received strength and enthusiasm from the Kobane resistance until the end of the ISIS caliphate in Baghouz on March 23, 2019.

The people of Kobane introduced the Autonomous Administration Project as a democratic solution on January 27, 2014, and this experience became the infrastructure of the Democratic Syria project.

This history is full of memories. On the occasion of the 6th anniversary of the Kobane victory on January 26, 2015 and the 7th anniversary of the declaration of the Kobane Autonomous Administration, we commemorate the heroism of the Kobane resistance and the sacrifices of our martyrs. Resistance and sacrifices have become the will of the peoples to create a democratic and free life. In the fight against ISIS terrorism, it became the basis for the realization of the North and East Syrian Autonomous Administration project.


Kobane victory is a legacy for the whole world and humanity as well as a vital gain that contributed to weaken Turkey and impeded its project of occupation and extension that was based on supporting ISIS. It went down in the culture of global revolutionary resistance as a heroic epic.

The will revealed by the Kobane resistance has become a hope in defeating ISIS. It was instrumental for the US forces fighting against ISIS in Kobane. As a result of the struggle and sacrifices, October 1 was declared as World Kobane Day.


As the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria, we emphasize once again that the support provided by the invading Turkish state to the gangs revives ISIS and other terrorist organizations in the region. This situation is a threat to the peoples of the world and harms our achievements in the fight against ISIS. Anyone who wishes to eliminate these threats must stop the crimes committed by the invading Turkish state and its gangs after the occupation of Afrin, Serêkaniyê and Girê Spî.

Liberation of Afrin, Serêkaniyê and Girê Spî is as important as the liberation of Kobane.

We call out to all the peoples of the region that Afrin, Kobane and all North and East Syria must adopt the line of resistance as a basis. This line of resistance is the guarantee of the democratic society of Northern and Eastern Syria and the security of the region.

Finally, we greet all the martyrs of the revolution.”

Belfast Mayor: Everybody must contribute to a peace with justice

Donostia. Sinn Fein mayor of Belfast, Máirtín Ó Muilleoir, opened on Thursday the international conference “Building Peace Starting at Local Level” organised in Donostia/San Sebastian (Basque Country) by the Donostia city council.

How municipalities can turn peace and reconciliation work into something genuinely lasting?

We must build peace with justice, and that’s a job for everyone. Sometimes big governments talk of peace, but they actually work very little for it. So you have to work for peace with the people, the communities, cities, nations. In Belfast I believe we are all connected .

You said at the opening of the Donostia’s conference that your Belfast has changed a lot after the Good Friday agreement of 1998. How?

Fifteen years have passed. The first time I walked in the Belfast City Council as a councillor it was in 1987, and back then peace was a project. The big change since the 1994 IRA permanent ceasefire is that now in our city there is no more war. The end of the years of conflict has brought many benefits and some of them are related to the 1998 peace agreement. Now we have a government that is just and in which all parties are represented. Peace itself is rewarding, but sometimes it presents many challenges. It has brought improvements in labor, industry, tourism … this is a great reward for those who support the peace process, but I think there is work which still needs to be done and to be consolidated.

The clash between two communities was much harder in Ireland than in the Basque Country, for example. How do you transform all that negative energy into a positive one?

Although the intensity of the conflict was greater, the Basque Country’s conflict is also a great shadow for Europe. There have been many years of political conflict here, many people lost their lives. I think we should be positive all the time and always see the glass half full if we want peace to win. But peace requires progress, and I know the great difficulties there are in Euskal Herria. However, those who believe in peace achieved democratically, rather than violence, will be rewarded. In Belfast we follow that path to political change and get more benefits for our people. Time will help peace prosper, and even if a political segment is against peace, I think we will find more and more people interested in this cause.
