TJA calls for action against executions in Iran

The Free Women's Movement called on everyone to raise a voice against the executions of protestors in Iran, saluting the mass anti-government demonstrations.

The Free Women's Movement (TJA) released a written statement on the executions of demonstrators by the Iranian state and the rights violations against women. The statement said: “We, the Kurdish people, divided into four parts, have been fighting to liberate our identity for a long time. As Kurdish women, we have also been fighting sexism. The Islamic Republic of Iran, like its neighbouring countries, has been resorting to violence to suppress all kinds of demands by both the Iranian society and the Kurdish community in the country.”

Pointing to the Iranian state’s response to the mass anti-government demonstrations with executions, the TJA said:

“The Kurds, Persians, Azeris, Lurs, Baluch and other marginalized identities and faiths in Iran are righteous in their struggle for human rights, freedom and democracy, while the fascist Islamic Republic of Iran continues to commit crimes against humanity. As the women of North Kurdistan (Turkey), we regard the popular resistance in Iran and Rojhilat (Iranian Kurdistan) as the most legitimate demand of the peoples and we stand by them. We call on people to raise their voices for the executions of protestors to be stopped and for their demands to be met. We reiterate our promise that we will turn the motto 'Jin, Jiyan, Azadi' (Woman, Life, Freedom) into a token of women's freedom.”
