Call for a march in Cologne in support of the “Jin, Jiyan, Azadi” Revolution
A cooperation founded in Germany wants to make the "Jin Jiyan Azadî" revolution in Iran and the resistance in Kurdistan and Baluchistan heard and is organizing a demonstration in Cologne for this purpose.
A cooperation of left-wing, democratic and libertarian forces has been founded in Germany to support the revolutionary awakening in Iran.
The association wants to make the "Jin Jiyan Azadî" revolution in Iran and the resistance in Kurdistan and Balochistan heard and is organizing a demonstration in Cologne on 28 January.
In a call, the organizers say: "For 43 years, the Islamic Republic of Iran has been exploiting people in various ways. People have been denied their basic rights, rights such as the right to a free and happy life. In a repressive and discriminatory structure founded by the Iranian regime, women, national minorities (such as, Balochs, Arabs, Kurds, Turks, etc.), the working class, sexual and religious minorities, have all faced double oppression. They have been marginalized. This patriarchal regime has oppressed women from the very first days of its establishment. It institutionalized many unequal principles in its constitution against women, such as compulsory hijab imposed on them based on law and the constitution."
The statement added: "We will hold a public rally and march on 28 January, in the city of Cologne. Therefore, we invite all who seek freedom to participate in this march with their symbols and colours so that it becomes an effective action in supporting the revolution of ‘women, life, freedom’ in Kurdistan and Iran."
The statement underlined that "this ongoing revolutionary movement has been very costly for the people so far. Based on some sources, more than 500 people have lost their lives. The Iranian regime has responded with brutality to this movement. The protestors faced intense repressions, arrests, imprisonments, tortures, and executions, and it has been made possible by paying a lot of costs, including the loss of hundreds of dear lives."
