"Fîraz Dağ" press training program of the guerrillas ends
The training program in honor of YPG Press Office member Fîraz Dağ (Mehmet Aksoy) at the Gurbetelli-Ersöz Press Academy in the Medya Defense Zones has ended.
Started on 15 December 2017 in honor of YPG Press Office member Fîraz Dağ (Mehmet Aksoy) at the Gurbetelli-Ersöz Press Academy in the Medya Defense Areas, the training program has ended. Sixteen guerillas have completed their ideological and journalistic training.
The media and information services training course in honor of Fîraz Dağ, who was killed by the Islamic State on 26 September 2017 while filming a documentary on the Raqqa Liberation Campaign on the side of the People's Defense Units (YPG), included lessons on democratic, ecological and women’s libertarian paradigms, history of Kurdistan, social studies, history of the PKK, history of the Kurdish press as well as courses on the special and psychological warfare.
Graduates of the Gurbetelli-Ersöz Press Academy said they were "the successors of Fîraz, Nûjiyan, Xerîb, Mazlum, Gurbetelli, Şîlan, and Xelîl" and promised to convey the facts to the people in the simplest form.
The aspiring journalists of the guerrillas said: "We will become the ideals of Deniz and Nûjiyan, who became the voice of resistance by the Kurdish people and the Ezidis from the Medya Defense Zones to Makhmur and Shengal Mountains, writing women’s resistance for freedom and capturing the images of this freedom struggle in every second of life. We will be followers of free life with great commitment. We will continue the life of Deniz, Fîraz and Nûjiyan with great determination."
