TJK-E calls on women to join Global Action Day for Rojava

The European Kurdish Women's Movement (TJK-E) called for participation to actions to be held at global level on the anniversary of the Rojava revolution on 18 and 19 July.

In a written statement, the European Kurdish Women's Movement (TJK-E) said: “We are celebrating the anniversary of the 19 July 2012 Rojava Revolution led by women. The Revolution showed that a new life is possible thanks to the great resistance of the peoples. This revolution has left a deep mark in the 21st century."

The statement continued: “Developments in Rojava and North-East Syria are marked by the efforts to build a democratic, free-women based and ecological system around the democratic society and the democratic nation perspective. In this sense, the Rojava revolution represents a new hope for the whole world, as it overcomes the fascist, single-man mentality, seeing all peoples and beliefs equally and granting equal representation to everyone.”

The TJK-E called on people to join the actions to be organised on 18 and 19 July by Women Defend Rojava, the International Commune, Make Rojava Green Again and RiseUp4Rojava to protest the colonialism, fascism, patriarchy and crimes against women as well as to celebrate the Rojava Revolution on its 8th anniversary.”
