Together with the feminist initiative "Fighting Together" and the Kurdish women's council "Dest-Dan", "Women Defend Rojava" promoted a rally in Berlin on Monday, August 3, at 6 pm at Mariannenplatz under the motto "Femicide is murder - sexism kills". Dozens have responded to the call on the occasion of the sixth anniversary of femicide and genocide in Shengal.
Music and speeches in German and English addressed the cruel diversity of patriarchal violence worldwide and the resistance of organized women. In their speeches, representatives of the feminist campaign "Fighting Together", the Afghan women's association "Anahita", the "Bloqe Latinoamericano", the working group "Comfort Women" from Korea, the Kurdish women's council "Dest-Dan" and "Women Defend Rojava" drew the connecting lines between their struggles for self-determination and the aggressive attacks of patriarchal societies, saying; “It is true: An attack on one is an attack on all of us!”
