Rotinda (Lexin Gerilla) - A music video on the PKK ( Kurdistan Workers Party )

Rotinda (Lexin Gerilla)

Link to video

I must say I found the soundtrack quite catchy though I can't understand
a word of it.

The PKK's ideology is founded on revolutionary Marxism-Leninism and Kurdish nationalism.The PKK's goal has been to create an independent socialist Kurdish state in a territory which it claims as Kurdistan, an area that comprises parts of south-eastern Turkey, north-eastern Iraq, north-eastern Syria and north-western Iran.
The PKK teach a Maoist philosophy to their recruits and, uniquely among Middle Eastern people, the women study, live and fight along with the men.

  1. hi, first of all i want to celibrate you, because of your blog. I am living in Turkey-Nourt Kurdistan and trying to follow the international movement, especially the maoist movements. so, ı can find news of Indian maoist movement on your site.
    after this thaks i want to corret a mistake on your site. you have given an music "Lexin Gerilla". and you have been characterized the PKK (Kurdistun Workers Party as Marxist-Leninist revoluationary. but it is whole wrong. PKK has changed it ideological line about 10 years ago. now it is whole struggling for national bazaar as all other national movemetnt. and they have give up marksist-leninist program, and take out the hammer-sickle from their flag. an of course it isn't maoist more than this it refuses the Marxism, leninism, maoism (MLM). their leader Öcalan who has been arrested for a long time, is telling that MLM has gone bankrupt! PKK is trying to make peace with the turkish goverment, giving up guns, living in the same sistem, and it only wants to be a legal politikal party. it is fighting against the turkey goverment just becaus of this anda ofcourse becaus of rletaionship with emperyalism. ı hope that you will make corret the information on your site.

    With revoluatinary, lal slam from Turkey-Nourt Kurdistan. Maoism will won, we will won, people will won, people's war will won!
