subject: DHKC: London protest outside Israeli embassy
(JC..BBC report this morning was that a protest was lodged to the
Security Council against the unnecessary savagery of the Israelis.
Naturally, the US vetoed the protest, as Palestine is not one of
those favored "democracies" that US sets up in its own interests-

PROTEST OUTSIDE ISRAELI EMBASSY
LONDON OCTOBER 3, 2000
In response to the recent wave of Israeli killings in occupied
Palestine a protest was initiated by DHKC-DHG (Revolutionary Peoples'
Liberation Front-Revolutionary People's Forces) outside the Israeli
embassy in London on Tuesday October 3, between 3.00 and 5.30 PM. The
aim was to take our protest against the killings direct to the
Israeli presence in London, and also to inform the public about these
massacres. The slogans "Long live the intifada", "Down with Zionism,
down with imperialism" "Long Live Peoples' Justice" "Down with CIA-
MOSSAD contra-guerrillas" were shouted, 400 leaflets were distributed
and a banner with the slogan "Imperialism Hands Off The Middle East"
Despite the attempts of the Special Branch (plainclothes police, part
of the British security services) to intimidate us and to distract us
from the aim of our protest, the general public showed an interest in
the demonstration and expressed concern about what had happened in
Palestine during the week.
The killings are continuing and so should the demonstrations.
Our organisation is from Turkey and Kurdistan but that does not stop
us from initiating a protest action on behalf of the people of
Palestine. This is our understanding of the word internationalism and
we have demonstrated this before for the people of Colombia and
Ireland, to give just a few examples.
In recent years, people have forgotten about Palestine - they
wrongly believed that the "peace process" had resolved everything.
The peace process is nothing more than an imperialist peace backed by
Arafat's betrayal. We would like to see the many different
organisations in London showing in practice what their attitude to
these recent events are.
Don't forget the people of Palestine - stand by them. We call on all
progressive and concerned people to unite in support of the cause of
Palestine and to unite in condemning the massacres of Israel.

DHKC (DEVRIMCI HALK KURTULUS CEPHESI)
REVOLUTIONARY PEOPLE'S LIBERATION FRONT
THE INTIFADA CONTINUES
Imperialism, Fascism And Zionism Will Be Defeated In The Middle
East! US imperialism wishes to speed up the process and stabilise the
"New Order in the Middle East" as soon as possible. One of the major
parts of the imperialist plan in the Middle East is to eliminate the
struggle of the Palestinian people for liberation, their right for an
independent country, their demand to return to their own land and
their dream of Jerusalem.
According to this, the first target is the organisations that are for
armed struggle and the revolutionary dynamics of the Palestinian
people. And once again the response of the Palestinian people to the
"New World Order" of imperialism is "Fight Until Liberation! Fight
Until Victory!" Imperialism has stepped up its practices in the
Middle East. There were plenty of engagements. Almost every day we
heard or read the news about these engagements of Arafat, Assad,
Barak, Hezbollah and Palestinian organisations.
Terms like "peace", "peacekeeper", "peaceful" etc. were widely used
by the media. Misinformation reached a peak. The "Muslim"
and "supporter of the Palestinians" (!) oligarchy in Turkey and its
media were launching campaigns to explain "Israel's love of peace"
for those Muslims "who cannot understand". This campaign has been
taking place in the Middle East more effectively and in an advanced
form, since the target of such a "peace" is the Middle East. The
murderer Barak was called "the dove of peace" by his media and
collaborators, and imperialism wishes to invest in him. Through this
way their plans will be stepped up.
The collaborator Arab regimes and the oligarchy in Turkey were
helping to advertise him in this way with all their might. Also, the
petit bourgeois nationalists supported them, as a result of their
ideological and political defeat. Despite everything, the barriers to
the Palestinian revolution are not insuperable. The Palestinian
people and its struggle carry this dynamic.
This was proven during decades of boycotts, strikes, in the prisons,
during the uprisings, in the camps. The people have learned to endure
pain, they have learned to stand up to horrors. A new-born
Palestinian is confronted by the occupation of his or her land, or
with the reality that he is close to his land , but also far away. He
has to live with the pain that he is without a homeland. Even before
he can walk, he resists, and before he learns how to say daddy or
mummy, he learns the slogan "Revolution until victory". Stones and
slings used against the enemy are his toys.
The future generals of the Palestinian revolution grew up with
feelings of hatred and revenge against Zionism and capitalism. Such a
people possess the potential which will lead them to victory. The
uprising in the occupied zones, going on for months now, is clear
proof. The Palestinian people are fighting the weapons, the tanks and
gas grenades of the Israeli soldiers, with stones, slings and
slogans. Young or old, seven or seventy, all take part in
a sacrificial uprising against the occupiers. The cruelties by Israel
are witnessed by millions on television screens. Since the beginning
of the uprising, dozens of Palestinians have been murdered, many more
are wounded. Israel, once again, has shown to the rest of the world
their understanding of "peace".
This uprising is also a response to the betrayal of the Arafat
regime. This is the response of the Palestinian people to
imperialism, Zionism and their collaborators. Victory in the Middle
East will belong to the Palestinians and the peoples of the Middle
East. The imperialists and its collaborators, the Zionist state, and
the reactionary Arab states will not escape their just end. They will
be thrown in the dustbin of history by the peoples of the Middle
East. The peoples in Turkey will take their responsibility in this
struggle as well and stand beside the Middle East with
DOWN WITH IMPERIALISM, ZIONISM AND FASCISM!
LONG LIVE THE STRUGGLE OF THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE!
FIGHT UNTIL LIBERATION, FIGHT UNTIL VICTORY!
