TJK-F and CDK-F: Our struggle will achieve justice for revolutionary women slaughtered in Paris

The Kurdish Women’s Movement in France (TJK-F) and Democratic Kurdish Council in France expressed their gratitude to all those struggling in order for the Paris Massacre to be enlightened, saying, “Our determined struggle will achieve justice.”

The Kurdish Women’s Movement in France (TJK-F) and Democratic Kurdish Council in France (CDK-F) said in a joint statement: “On the 9th anniversary of the Paris Massacre, we once again carried out several marches as well as many events across France, especially in Paris, demanding justice for PKK co-founder, Sakine Cansız (Sara), KNK Paris Representative Fidan Doğan (Robin), Youth Movement Member Leyla Şaylemez (Ronahi) who were slaughtered in Paris on 9 January 2013. We owe it to our people and everyone who has shared our struggle to seek to bring those responsible for the killings before justice.”

The statement continued: “We thank all politicians, members of friendly institutions, political parties, and feminist movements, who attended all the events and marches that we held on 5, 8 and 9 January, and we thank our people who have been on the streets since the first day of this case, for their great efforts to enhance our struggle for justice and raise demands of justice and freedom, which we inherited from three revolutionary Kurdish women Sakine Cansız, Fidan Doğan and Leyla Şaylemez.”

Urging the French judiciary to avoid leaving the Paris Massacre in darkness, the statement added: “Great efforts have been made by all our friends. These efforts are part of a struggle for a better future, freedom and democracy. We will keep this struggle going. Peace and democracy forces will win once again; we salute everyone who has been waging a great struggle for justice for Sakine Cansız, Fidan Doğan and Leyla Şaylemez for 9 years.”
