|The agreement between the EU and Turkey
that means nothing else than negotiating on the future of those who had to flee from the war areas and to migrate has been launched on 4th April. If you think that with this agreement human dignity could be trampled on, how reaction and xenophobia could be practiced, how racism and chauvinism are appeased, how fascism, concrete the Turkish fascist dictatorship, is supported to make profit for the EU, pioneer of so-called democracy, and whilst this happens how the Kurdish nation experiences a policy based on murder and annihilation and how this is supported, then you should have a look at this agreement. This agreement is the biggest disgrace in history for the EU and the so-called democratic countries. It is nothing else than sanctimony. From the point of Turkey none of these terms has a meaning.
When we read the contents of the agreement, we won’t be able to find anything like a guilty conscience of the so-called democratic EU. What you’ll find are: related to the migrants’ question Turkey should stop the migrant flow, Turkey should host them and hinder illegal border crossings to the EU; letting migrants into the EU should be coordinated supported by Turkey (every migrant hindered to cross the EU-border illegally and sent back shall be exchanged with a migrant accepted to the EU). In exchange for that, the EU will pay 3 billion € in addition to 3 billion € agreed on.
Regardless whether the fascist dictatorship has agreed with the EU on the migrants’ question or not, it is in the situation to kill several birds with one stone. The number of migrants only coming from Syria is 2,6 million. This migrants’ crowd is used by Turkey as a strong weapon against the EU. Turkey makes the EU bow in front of the “decent” demands.
-The fascist regime brutally attacked those cities and provinces that had announced self-government in Northern Kurdistan, Kurdish people were killed and annihilation practiced. The whole world as well as the EU is watching.
- The relation of migrants with the EU, therefor with the Western world, shall be leavened, although both parties believe in that, the EU membership process shall be hurried and the oppression on the regime relaxed
-The EU shall be made a defender of the politics “safe area” in Syria
-The EU shall defend Turkey against the tensions caused by Russia and efforts of Russia to oppress Turkey
-Achieving ground for TANAP (Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline) and East Mediterranean potential pipe line
-Resettling migrants to especially Rojava Northern Kurdistan’s border in order to change the demographic structure
-Considering migrants as potential votes
- Considering migrants who are old enough to work as cheap work power
As the “leader of the general public” R. T. Erdogan threatened the EU saying: “Do buses and planes stand there for nothing?”. This threat has shown its effect. As long as migrants are used by Turkey as a means of threat, the EU will remain impartial on behalf of Turkey regardless of its support to regional and international questions of the fascist dictatorship. Or the EU will follow the strategy to solve the migrants’ question from its core.
It is possible that the EU solves the migrants’ question from its core? It is brave enough for that? No, it’s not, because the real responsible for this question and this drama are the imperialist countries themselves. When ten thousands, hundred thousands came to the EU borders, they had to accept their existence. The agreement between Turkey and the EU is not only a tragedy but a crime in reality. It is a crime because migration is a direct result of the imperialist countries’, which are striving after hegemony, plundering wars, occupations and changing regimes according to their own profits’. With this agreement the EU can’t hide its hypocrisy, fake democracy or the crime committed when sending the migrants sent back to their home countries through Turkey and it can’t get away from this guilt. When these “damned” of the world started migrating and started to get into the EU borders, the “Western values’ community” hasn’t hesitated to show its hypocrisy. From the point of view of the EU it is hypocrisy: It didn’t want to see the problem and behaved hypocritical. When it had to face the problem, the EU was still behaving hypocritical. Even when the EU tried to behave human there was hypocrisy and when it chose between the migrants, it was hypocritical.
Imperialist politics, geopolitical ambitions, the occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq, the dissolution of Libya, the civil war in Syria have nothing else produced than poverty, millions of people killed and fled. The real reason for millions of people migrating is imperialism itself.
Imperialism can’t get rid of the migrants’ question this quickly. The agreement between Turkey and the EU won’t stop the wave of migration, when these wars and the reasons for migration continue; the number of migrants coming to the West and EU will grow. No one should doubt that hundred thousands and millions will migrate. Country occupations, power wars, destruction and plundering come back to the imperialists as homeless, unemployed people without a future.
