A statement to the public opinion
The democratic change is the future of the Middle East and what is happening in Iran also confirms this change.
Looking at the intractable crises in the Middle East confirms the logical conclusion that the nation-state has failed to present itself as the solution to the issues, but has confirmed and according to the past, present and future results are as the core of the crisis in the whole region.
And every attempt that starts from the concept of the central nation-state will not fail. It will only be a rotation for the causes of the crisis instead of heading towards the need to search for a democratic alternative
What happened in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and Yemen, and the Syrian crisis, which enters its eighth year in less than three months, confirms that the typical era of nations is over, despite the support of regional autocratic regimes in spite of their ecological and historical contradictions
The massive demonstrations that continue almost a week in Iran can only be seen within the context of the cumulative view of the structural crisis in the Middle East, which is related to the form of a nation-state with a central system that cannot be described as a chance for success and permanence. They were strange and aggressive to what the people of the Middle East as a whole will and look forward to.
As for the description of the popular uprisings against central despotic regimes as being made by foreign powers, or that they are the result of inherited conspiracy and other dogmatic formulations, are a dogma in itself, which is intended for many things, foremost of which is questioning the mass demonstrations and circumventing the cries of the people and their true demand for democratic change
The Iranian regime repeats the same erroneous words and approaches used by the authoritarian regimes as they did seven years ago, and in particular, as what happened in Syria and its insistence on its tyrannical regime, which did not provide anything until Syria reached such a terrifying level of destruction and community violence and division today; This means that the result will not be very different from what will happen in Iran, especially when we realize that the peoples of the Middle East have essentially the same minds and the same democratic life that they have known for thousands of years side by side and in a participatory way. It is the same crisis itself.
The artificial boundaries, the division that accompanied the Sykes-Picot Agreement and the practices of authoritarian regimes that have vowed to divide and split between the components of the Middle East or in each newly developed geography have failed.
The stage of democratic transition is now in an advanced position to take the initiative, and any system that does not pay attention to the demands of the people, its fate will not be the same as before
We in the executive body of the Movement for Democratic Society (TEV DEM) support in all legitimate means the demands of the people of Iran regarding change and democratic transformation, and solving the main issues, especially the Kurdish issue, because it is a participatory situation and mosaic diversity and cultural richness spanning thousands of years. We call Iranian people to move from the democratic solution to all the crises of the Middle East, which is in turn the solution of the Democratic nation, which made important strides in Northern Syria (ROJAVA), and especially the achievement of security and stability in our regions, after YPG, YPJ and SDF became as a symbol for the whole world and the region global against terrorism.
And the starting from the basic rules of community real, the most important of the common living and brotherhood of peoples and the unity of the fate of the people of northern Syria and the whole of Syria and the region.
