Armed action was carried out by our HBDH Revenge Militia towards the police car, which was patrolling in the Bağcılar district of Istanbul on July 18, 2020. The number was not clear, although the action resulted in deaths and injuries.
The palace press always conceals the truth from the public, as well as the truth about the content and results of our action. The people they caught and are torturing have no connection with our militia. Our units are safely withdrawn from the action area.
Our action is in retaliation for harassment and rape attacks against children by invading soldiers in Şırnak and Batman. AKP-MHP fascism and its fascist powers are herds of rapists like ISIS gangs with which they partner. Our peoples have been on the streets of Batman and Şırnak with the spirit of serhildan [Kurdish uprisings against Turkey] for days, and this invader was called to account by those going to the streets against rape. HBDH punished the police in Istanbul in response to this call by our people.
We know the rapist, murderer state tradition very well. Be afraid of the anger of these people and the actions of our revolutionary forces, on which you impose slavery every day with the policies of colonialism and occupation. Wherever our weapons are, they are aimed at these rapist gangs. Your rotten and decadent fascist state will not be able to protect you. Courts implementing fascist law through power will not protect you. Every crime you commit against peoples, women and laborers will be punished by our united forces. Your barracks, army houses, security buildings that you think are sheltered will be destroyed and you will return to the rubble pile under the collapsing AKP-MHP fascist state.
The most honorable behavior for Kurdistan’s people, workers, laborers, youth and women is to rebel against rapists and the state. The language understood by rapists, murderers, torturers, invaders is the line of action that HBDH has revealed today. This line of action derives its strength from the resistance rising from the Amed dungeons; this line of action derives its strength from the united struggle that resisted the AKP-ISIS partnership in Rojava.
On the occasion of our action, we salute the July 14 insurgents Mehmet Hayri Durmuş, Kemal Pir, Akif Yılmaz and Ali Çiçek, who crushed the darkness of ISIS 6 years ago, and the resistance against surrender to the world 38 years ago with the fire of liberty between the four walls in the Diyarbakır dungeon. We respectfully greet Rojava Revolution warriors who tell the oppressed peoples the message that the age of revolutions is ongoing.
Fascism will be defeated and our united revolutionary struggle will win. Not to mention now, it’s time for action!
