People of Til Hemis rally for Sakine, Fidan and Leyla
The conspiracies against the Kurdish people and their leading figures seek to inflict a blow on their demand for freedom, according to Coza El-Hasûd of Kongreya Star.
PKK founding member Sakine Cansız (Sara), KNK Paris Representative Fidan Doğan (Rojbin) and Youth Movement member Leyla Şaylemez (Ronahi) were murdered in the heart of French capital Paris on 9 January 2013. Justice is still to be done for the three Kurdish women revolutionaries.
Women’s umbrella organization Kongreya Star organised a demonstration in Til Hemis district of Qamishlo under the motto “We will defeat fascism and invasion in the spirit of Sakine and Hevrin”.
Hundreds of people staged a march from Til Hemis District Council to the central junction, displaying posters of Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan and of murdered women, chanting slogans against invasion and conspiracies.
Speaking at the rally that followed, Kongreya Star administrator Coza El-Hasûd commemorated all martyrs of freedom. She stressed that the conspiracies against the Kurdish people and their leading figures sought to inflict a blow on their demand for freedom.
Speaking after, Til Hemis Assembly of Martyrs’ Families co-chair Ehmed El-Ebawî stressed that the women acting based on the idea and philosophy of Öcalan were leaders in all areas of life.
The rally ended with slogans.
