Action in front of the French embassy in Stockholm

In Stockholm Kurdish women left a black wreath at the French Embassy to condemn the murder of three Kurdish revolutionary women in Paris on 9 January 2013.

Kurdish women left a wreath at the French Embassy to protest against the murder of Sakine Cansız, KNK Paris Representative Fidan Doğan and Youth Movement activist Leyla Şaylemez, killed by the Turkish state in Paris 7 years ago.

The activists placed the wreath in front of the French embassy with a picture of three Kurdish women and delivered a letter of protest to embassy officials to condemn the role of the French state in the massacre.

Sara Women's Assembly recalled in a statement the resistance and determination of Sakine Cansız while in prison after the 12 September 1980 military coup in Turkey.

"Despite seven years have passed since the massacre, - said the statement - justice has not yet been made. It is not understandable that the real authors of the massacre, the Turkish state and MIT, have not yet been brought to justice in France."

The statement also emphasized that Kurdish women will continue to pursue justice until those who carried out the massacre are punished.

The Sara Women's Union called on all Kurdss and their friends to join the demonstration at Humlegården Park in Stockholm on Saturday (11 January).
