A march and rally were held in Cologne to support the protests that began after the murder of Kurdish woman Jîna Amini by the "morality police" in Tehran, last September.
Supported by the Kurdistan Free Life Party (PJAK), the Rojhilat Free Women's Community (KJAR), as well as 15 Iranian and leftist women's organizations operating from Germany and different European countries, hundreds of Rojhilat and Iranian Kurds, Baloch, Azeri, Arab, Persian people attended the rally. As one activist put it: "Only the Shah's party did not participate. All the opposition colors of Iran and Kurdistan are here."
The representative of the Interventionistische Linke (IL – Interventionist Left) said: "The attitude of the German government shows that capital is more valuable than human life. The European Union keeps revolutionary organizations on the terrorist list. We are against the capitalist system, patriarchy, fascism, racism and the oppression and exploitation of the ruling classes. Our struggles are interconnected internationally. We're talking about the feminist revolution: feminists need to connect with each other internationally."
