Belgian Kurdish Women's Movement YJK-B published the list of activities and actions to be organized to mark 25 November, International Day of Solidarity and Struggle Against Violence Against Women.
Women are getting ready to take to the streets on 25 November, International Day of Solidarity and Struggle Against Violence Against Women. Belgian Kurdish Women's Movement YJK-B issued a written statement regarding the actions and activities to be organized.
The statement remarked that women are the lifeblood of social life despite the chaotic environment and misogyny, and continued: "Women have not refrained from being the mainstay of this struggle in the family, work environment, in politics and war. The Kurdish Women's Movement, which has been an example of women's movements all over the world, especially in Kurdistan, is still making history as it is going through an unprecedented attack against women and peoples.”
The statement drew attention to the fact that Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan and his mercenaries have killed women in front of the world’s eyes for years, and added: "This situation is no longer acceptable. Women will be on the streets to bring Erdoğan to account. We, as the Kurdish Women's Movement living in Belgium, confirm that we will actively participate in the ‘100 Reasons for the Trial of the Dictator’ https://anfenglishmobile.com/women/tjk-e-starts-100-reasons-for-the-trial-of-the-dictator-campaign-48007
