A latter to my comrades.

Dear comrades
1-Politically I believe any action that is going to be organise in solidarity with immigrants should be openly announced(according to a political statement, which I have taken it years ago), unless if this solidarity action need to be organise in a close group(for serious actions, which means violently attacking the interests of state and capitalism)
As I standed in my political statement, any problems of immigrants is a social issue, and should be solved in a way that create the social base of solidarity; in fact the society should be informed about these problems in order to take initiative for solidarity action.

2-There is a preparation group behind the demo of 31/12. The only reason why I called for demo by my name is: because the immigrant collectives are missing in the struggles; and I believe, first of all it is the duty of immigrants to create struggle in solidarity with other immigrants; so I as an immigrant(together with local comrades) took a initiative to call and do preparations for the demo. While I respect the struggles of locals in solidarity with the immigrants, but in the same time I believe that immigrants better understand the situation of each others (because of common problems that we daily face with them), so the local sometimes only must follow the struggles that immigrants in solidarity of other immigrants.

3- As I made a statment in the intervention of a demonstration(video of it was share in, this period of time is more important than past to have open presence(protests) in the streets, because the state is try to criminalise the solidarity. The repression exist and I know it; but in my opinion we should face with the repression and stand against it than escape from it.(this is similar reason as the intervention happened in IND office at 8/12) , because I believe we shouldn't victimizing ourselves(even me who is almost a undocumented immigrant), but instead of it, we should stand against repression in the position of power. This is the only way that they respect us. We have to throw fear in their body, if we want to win.

5-I do not have problem to make self criticism, if it is necessary, as I have done it many times.
