PJAK publishes declaration of proposals for Iran and Rojhilat

PJAK has published its stand and proposals for the revolution taking place in Eastern Kurdistan and Iran, stating that the revolution is led by women and can become the basis for a democratic nation.

In Eastern Kurdistan (Rojhilat) and Iran, the uprising that broke out after the violent death of Jina Mahsa Amini continues. The PJAK (Party for a Free Life in Kurdistan) has published proposals for further developments.

The declaration published on Saturday states the following:

"Through the revolution of the peoples of Eastern Kurdistan and Iran, which has been going on for more than a month, material and spiritual values have been created. Now the main thing is to become aware of the dangers that threaten this revolution. The peoples of Iran must give clear answers to the question of what will happen after the revolution. Parties, political forces and society must avoid anything that could block the revolution. They must express this clearly for the revolution to succeed. It is the responsibility of all movements and forces to overcome every obstacle to the revolution. For this reason, every party and every force must clearly state its programme, its thoughts and its attitude towards society. Based on the correct positions of the parties, people can stay mobilised and continue their protests.

The Party for a Free Life in Kurdistan (PJAK) has stated its position on the 'new revolution' developing in Iran in favour of the revolution and the measures necessary for the revolution. Now, the discussions about the revolution and the obstacles in its way are becoming clearer. Based on this debate, we feel the need to explain once again our stance, proposals and assessments in the spirit of 'unity and solidarity'. We think it is necessary to clarify some things so that the Kurdish and Iranian peoples can identify with this revolution. On this basis, we explain our position for the Kurdish people and the peoples of Iran with a programme."


In the declaration of PJAK, the following points are listed:

The revolution is led by women. It has been a women's revolution since the beginning and must be contextualised. All sexist and masculine methods against women must be stopped. The idea of women's liberation must be defended. The whole society must be formed on this basis so that a free life is possible.

The struggle must overcome racism, nationalism and confessional and religious differences. Such discourses and practices must be avoided.

The struggle must not continue with a centralist understanding but must focus on self-determination.

All regions must focus on self-government and strive for an education system based on democracy and a free life with one's own culture and tradition.

The negative tendencies of the Iranian regime towards life must be fought, the ecology and environment must be protected.

The fundamental rights of all nations, peoples, religions, confessions and social groups must be defended. For a coexistence of all social components according to ethical principles, the model of a "Democratic Nation" should be striven for.

Freedom must be granted to all religions, denominations and faith communities.

Revolutionary forces must not only demand freedom for all religions, faiths, nations and social groups in discourse, but must also act in practice under the motto of "unity and solidarity without distinction".

Platforms should be formed for the people to include, within the framework of unity, solidarity and common coordination, all movements, parties, institutions, associations, revolutionary forces and people demanding and struggling for freedom, in order to build self-government against theocratic and religious domination.

A committee or council should be appointed to strengthen and advance the popular uprising and revolution.


The resistance for freedom must be for all identities, cultures, traditions, languages and religions living in Kurdistan.

The revolution of the Kurdish people is led unconditionally and without further justification by women.

For the emergence of a radical and direct democracy, a system of self-government must be introduced in all institutions and social platforms of the Kurdish people. The domination of any language or religion is rejected.

Within the framework of the above articles, PJAK declares that it rejects all kinds of flags and symbols. The PJAK accepts the flag of the Republic of Kurdistan (Mahabad) as the national flag until the convening of a national congress for the unity and solidarity of the Kurdish people and a new decision made by all Kurdish forces.”
