Welsh Language Version of Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr Statement on Turkish Invasion of Afrin - Northern Syria

Mae'r Aflonyddwch Mawr yn galw ar Lywodraeth Prydain a'r Undeb Ewropiaidd i alw am Dwrci i atal ei ddefnydd o awyrennau ymladd a bomio pobl Cwrdaidd yn Afrin.

Rydym hefyd yn galw ar Lywodraeth Prydain a'r Undeb Ewropeaidd i gondemnio'r ymosodiad Twrcaidd Gogledd Syria a'i ymosodiad ar Bobl Cwrdaidd Gogledd Syria.

Mae'r bobl Cwrdaidd wedi gwahaniaethu eu hunain o flaen y... byd fel y rhai gorau yn erbyn y ffwndamentaliaeth Islamaidd a patriarchaeth y Wladwriaeth Islamaidd (ISIL).

Mae'r pobl Cwrdaidd wedi marw gan ymladd y Wladwriaeth Islamaidd i gynnal gwerthoedd dyneiddiol seciwlar cyffredinol.

Maent bellach yn cael eu bradychu ac aberthu gan Washington a Moscow ar allor gwleidyddiaeth geo imperialaeth. Mae Washington a Moscow yn dawnsio gyda'r Erdogan unbenaethol.

Rydym yn galw ar Lywodraeth Prydain a'r Undeb Ewropeaidd i godi'r gwaharddiad terfysgaeth ar gynrychiolwyr y Bobl Cwrdeg y PKK y Plaid Gweithwyr Cwrdeg ac i gydnabod y dyheadau cenedlaethol dilys y Bobl Cwrdeg ar gyfer hunan benderfyniad.

Mae'r Aflonyddwch Mawr yn talu teyrnged i gamp y cyfeillgarwch hanesyddol rhwng pobloedd Cwrdeg Cymraeg ac rydym yn apelio at Lywodraeth Prydain a'r Undeb Ewropeaidd i atal yr ymosodiadau mileinig Twrcaidd ar y bobl Cwrdaidd.

Beth bynnag bu weithredoedd y Llywodraeth Prydain a'r Undeb Ewropeaidd mae bond cadarn o gyfeillgarwch rhwng Cwrdeg a'r Cymraeg.

Mae Cymru yn talu teyrnged i'r bobl Cwrdaidd arwrol. Dyma frwydr Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr ar gyfer annibyniaeth a sosialaeth sydd wedi cael ei ysbrydoli gan Straen y Bobl Cwrdeg.

Catalonia: Torrent and Puigdemont meet in Brussels amidst controversy

Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr calls on the British Government and the European Union to call for Turkey to halt its use of fighter planes and the bombing of Afrin and halt its military invasion

Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr calls on the British Government and the European Union to call for Turkey to halt its use of fighter planes and the bombing of Afrin and halt its invasion force.

We  call on The British Government and European Union to condemn the Turkish invasion of Northern Syria and its attack on Kurdish People of Northern Syria 

The Kurdish people have distinguished themselves before the world as the best fighters against the Islamic fundamentalism and  patriarchy of the Islamic State (ISIL) 

Kurdish people have done the fighting and the dying  fighting the Islamic State to uphold universal secular humanistic values.

They are now being betrayed and sacrificed by Washington and Moscow on the altar of geo politics of imperialism.

Washington and Moscow  are dancing with the despot Erdogan. 

We call on the British Government and European Union to lift the terrorism ban on the representatives  of the Kurdish People the PKK the Kurdish Workers Party and to recognise the legitimate national aspirations of the Kurdish People for self determination.

The Aflonyddwch Mawr salutes the historic friendship between Welsh and Kurdish peoples while we appeal to the British Government and European Union to stop the Turkish murderous attacks on the Kurdish people.

Whatever the actions of the British Government and the European Union there is an unbreakable bond of friendship between Kurdish and Welsh People.

Wales salutes the heroic Kurdish people.

Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr's struggle for Welsh independence and socialism is inspired by the Kurdish People's Struggle.

Red Salute to Unified Korean Flag at Winter Olympics

Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr welcomes the announcement of a joint hockey team of North and South Korea - we are aware that both North and South Korea marching under the same flag at the Winter Olympics will largely be symbolic - but it is the symbolism we love - it warms the heart and swells the demand for the Unification of the Korean Peninsula.

Irish Socialist Republicans were honoured to be invited by Jugendwirderstand to the annual Lenin /Luxemburg /Liebknecht demonstration in Berlin this year.

Irish Socialist Republicans were honoured to be invited by Jugendwirderstand to the annual Lenin/Luxemburg/Liebknecht demonstration in Berlin this year.

On Saturday 13th January a representative gave a brief run down of the current position of Irish Socialist Republicanism in 2018 before a cultural event which included performances from local Berlin hip hop artists and also performances from activists from Norway and France. The night ended with the singing of the International simultaneously in a number of different languages.

Sunday 14th January saw a well disciplined and organised bloc of revolutionary youth congregate and march in honour of Lenin, Luxemburg and Liebnecht and all revolutionaries who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

Half way through the march the bloc was forced to break ranks when German police attacked Kurdish demonstrators who were carrying pictures of Kurdish leaders (something which is illegal in Germany). A number of demonstrators were successfully rescued. As the bloc reorganised the police again tried to antagonize the demonstrators but were successfully repelled.

The bloc remained disciplined until the end of the demonstration where there was a brief rallying speech which finished with the singing of the International.

After the main march had dispersed revolutionary youth reorganised in the Nuekölln area of Berlin and defiantly shouted revolutionary slogans and support for the Palestinian struggle. The demonstration was welcomed positively by locals, some of whom waved flags in support.

Irish Socialist Republicans and Anti-Imperialist Action would like to thank Jugendwirderstand for their invitation and hospitality and also all the other international activists who made it a memorable weekend. We look forward to working together in the future.

Nuekölln is Red! Long live the Reds!

Catalonia From Political Prisoners to Political Hostages a bad sign for the future

Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr says given the importance of Catalan Self Determination for the future of democracy in Europe we are appalled and disgusted by Spanish Government and Catalan opposition tactics to undermine the popular vote for independence by political hostage taking in the form of the current political prisoners and continued intimidation of pro independence leaders with potential 30 year prison sentences.

Spain is making a mockery of democracy in the heart of Europe and the silence of political forces from the Leftists to the Rightists shows how far they have abandoned the United Nations Right to Self Determination as part of the struggle for Democracy and Socialism.

Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr calls for the defense of Pablo Hasel against the Spanish State

Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr calls for the defense of Pablo Hasel against the Spanish State

Pablo Hasel almost single handed in his rapping and songs exposes the fake bourgeois democracy  in Spain since 1978 and the continuation of Francoist repression under Rajoy.

All the public relations of the Spanish State can no longer hide its repression and the world has seen it in action in Catalonia and now we are all becoming more aware of other repressive cases in Spain.

For exposing before people of Spain and World the anti democratic actions of Spanish State in his songs - the Spanish State seeks revenge on Pablo Hasel .

They have imprisoned him before for two years and intend to do so again and up to us all to defend Pablo Hasel.

His voice is our voice and it must not be silenced or imprisoned or we are.
