Hîlala Zêrîn releases song "Baraye" in solidarity with women protesting in Iran and Rojhilat
Hîlala Zêrîn Women's Cultural Movement released the song "Baraye" to support the "Jin, Jiyan, Azadî" rebellion in Rojhilat and Iran.
The song "Baraye", which means "For" in Kurdish and which is accepted as the anthem of the rebellion in Rojhilat and Iran, was sung in Persian by singer Shervin Hajipour.
Shervin Hajipour was detained on 29 September 2022, two days after the song's release.
This song resonated all over the world and was translated into different languages.
The lyrics of the song draw attention to the freedom dance played in the streets of Rojhilat and Iran during the revolt, the change in the reactionary mentality, the impact of the Iranian state's policies on the future of children and students, and the oppression of the detainees. The song also mentions the slogan "Jin, Jiyan, Azadî".
The Stêra Zêrîn Group from the Hilala Zêrin Women's Cultural Movement recorded the song and released a clip which includes images and stills from the demonstrations in Rojhilat and Iran.
The Hêwa Group from the Hîlala Zêrîn Women's Cultural Movement had previously performed the song "Jina" to support the "Jin, Jiyan, Azadî" rebellion.
