Leading the communes and assemblies

Cahid Hesen, who met Martyr Evîn Goyî in 2011 in Başûrê Kurdistan, said: “In 2011, I had the chance to meet with Heval Evîn, albeit briefly. In the first months of 2016, we were in the same area in Rojava Kurdistan and took part in the same administration. Undoubtedly, Heval Evîn played a great leading role in both the Rojava-North and East Syria Revolution. She carried out activities for the communes and assemblies in TEV-DEM.
