Kongra Star publishes brochure to pay tribute to martyrs of women's revolution

Kongra Star published a brochure to pay tribute to the martyrs of the women's revolution.

On 23 December 2022, Evîn Goyî, Mîr Perwer and Abdurrahman Kizil were killed in Paris. Nearly ten years ago, on 9 January 2013, Sakine Cansız, Fidan Doğan and Leyla Şaylemez were murdered in Paris as well. 

Kongra Star has published a brochure paying tribute to the martyrs of the women's revolution.

Presenting the brochure, Kongra Star wrote: "The recent attack in Paris is the continuation of systematic assassinations of revolutionary women and a direct attack on women’s struggle for freedom. Women are taking more and more responsibility in changing their situation and are therefore challenging capitalist modernity.

Women, who are struggling for freedom and who are actively building the women’s resistance movement, are one of the main targets of the forces of capitalist modernity.

Since the assassination of Sakine, Fidan and Leyla until now, several Kurdish and Arabic women who took responsibility for building up a women’s revolution have been attacked by the Turkish state and fell as martyrs.

Killing leading women is one of the strategies of the Turkish state in its fight against our revolutionary movement. In this brochure, we want to remember some of them and make it clear that the attack in Paris was not caused by a single racist man, but a part of the strategy against revolutionary women, led by the Turkish state."
