'Our freedom martyrs are the core of the women's revolution'
“Kurdish women and people have already destroyed fears and those who think that they can silence us with deaths are wrong. Because Kurdish women are the students of Sara, Evin, Rojbin, Fidan, Sêvê, Fatma and thousands of martyrs.”
The Party of Free Women in Kurdistan (PAJK) Coordination Ayten Dersim, in an article she wrote for the PAJK official website, commemorated the revolutionaries who were martyred in the massacres in Paris and said: "Our answer to the martyrs is to be their comrades on the path of truth. When we say that the 21st century will be the century of women, we should focus on struggle and awareness. We will hold an organized stance and a determined march everywhere, to hold the conspirators to account."
The article continued: "The struggle for freedom is a long-term and fierce struggle. The travelers of this path are those who pursue the great truth and freedom. Of course, they are revolutionaries. These revolutionaries are the revolutionaries of 21st century democratic modernity. They are Apoists, and PKK members. These revolutionaries were educated in the Leader's philosophy of freedom. They are determined on the ideology of women's liberation, and on social freedom at the level of love. We overcome death by adding new links to the chain of freedom. Great humanity's march for freedom is this march to kill death."
The article added: "The free women's movement has become the leading movement of women and societies all over the world with its 50th anniversary struggle. The women of the world united in a common struggle with the slogans of the magic formula ‘Jin, Jiyan, Azadi’ everywhere. Just in such a period, fascism still wants to get results by attacking women leaders and militants. On the eve of the tenth anniversary of the 9 January Paris massacre, we experienced the second massacre as women in the heart of Paris.
We must respond to colonialism and fascism by socializing the ‘Jin, Jiyan, Azadi’power in all aspects of life. Our answer to the martyrs is to be their comrades on the path of truth.
We said that the 21st century will be the century of women. Therefore, we should focus on struggle and awareness. Bringing the conspirators to account will be our aim."
