Mothers of guerrillas: Women should rise up against arrests
Protesting the Turkish state's detention operations against politicians and peace mothers in North Kurdistan, mothers of guerrillas and martyrs in Qamishlo call on Kurds and their friends to promote the struggle against Turkey's policies towards Kurds.
The Turkish state, which continues its policies of denial towards Kurdish politicians, Peace Mothers and the population in North Kurdistan, continues its political genocide operations against the Kurdish people and their elected representatives.
Turkish forces raided the homes of many people, including Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) members and Peace Mothers, in Diyarbakır, Urfa, Şırnak and Antalya last week. Speaking to ANHA, Peace Mothers in Qamishlo reacted to the policies of the Turkish state.
"WE SALUTE THE RESISTANCE OF PEACE MOTHERS IN NORTH KURDISTAN
Gülnaz Mihemed from Amûdê district remarked that: “Turkey is one of the states that engages in oppression and persecution targeting people and especially women. It prevents the activities of Peace Mothers and Kurdish politicians. The Turkish state has been pursuing a policy of intimidating mothers, politicians, members of parliament and journalists who expose the reality of the Turkish state to the public. We, Rojava women, endorse Peace Mothers in Turkey and North Kurdistan. We salute their resistance and activities.”
"WOMEN SHOULD STAND UP AGAINST THE POLICIES OF THE TURKISH STATE"
Shocked by the Turkish state's persecution and oppression of prisoners behind bars, Fatima Mistefa said, “Everyone is silent despite the crackdown by the Turkish state. "No organization and association has so far adopted position against human rights violations."
Fatima Mistefa added that they support the legitimate defense forces through the actions and activities they organize every Wednesday, stressing their rejection of the policies of the occupying Turkish state towards the Kurdish people.
Amudêli Emşe Heyder, who condemned the Turkish state's crimes against lawyers, politicians, activists and women, called on women to revolt against the Turkish state's crimes in four parts of Kurdistan.
Emşe Heyder greeted the resistance of all prisoners, especially Leader Abdullah Öcalan, and the Peace Mothers, and called on the people of Kurdistan and their friends to promote the struggle against the policies of the Turkish state.
Mothers of guerrillas and martyrs in the Cizire region carry out protests every Wednesday against the policies of the Turkish state towards the Kurdish people.
