TJK-F and CDK-F: France is guilty as long as justice is not served!

Commemorating the three Kurdish women murdered in Paris, TJK-F and CDK-F said: "We urge everyone to join the action in Gare Du Nord on January 8 to hold the murderers and the forces behind them accountable."

The Kurdish Women's Movement in France (TJK-F) and the Democratic Kurdish Council in France (CDK-F) released a written statement marking the 9th anniversary of the murder of three Kurdish women in the heart of Paris.

The statement published on Thursday includes the following:

“On January 9, 2013, the fascist Turkish state assassinated three of our revolutionary female comrades from Kurdistan in Paris, France's capital. We commemorate Sakine Cansız, Fidan Doğan and Leyla Şaylemez, who were murdered in an inhumane attack, with respect and gratitude on the 9th anniversary of their murder, and once again condemn this vile attack with great hatred and anger.


Three great women revolutionaries who were the pioneers, resistance fighters, and creators of our women's freedom struggle, which emerged from Kurdistan and became universal today, were murdered as a result of the dirty and ugly partnership of the capitalist system forces, the last representative of patriarchal mentality. Sakine Cansız, Fidan Dogan, and Leyla Şaylemez's life, ideas, and feelings have become the representatives of women's thousands of years of struggle for a free and equal life. They have carried out the morals, philosophy, ideology, and resisting stance of the Kurdistan women's liberation movement with enormous responsibility for freedom at any time and in any place. The assassination of these three Kurdish women revolutionaries was carried out as part of the colonialist Turkish state's and the fascist dictator Erdogan regime's policy of genocide, denial, and occupation imposed on the Kurdish people. The Kurdish people and their friends identified those guilty of the massacre in Paris. France is guilty as long as justice is not served! The French state's justice system has yet to unveil the dark aspect in front of the Kurdish people and humanity.

It is more vital than ever to deepen the collective struggle against fascism and all expressions of male violence in all areas of life.

Unfortunately, the massacres continue because the Paris massacre has not been resolved and those who are responsible have not been held accountable yet.

On the 9th anniversary of the atrocity, we, the Kurdish people, declare that we will never forget the Paris martyrs and will never forgive the murderous enemies.

On this premise, on the anniversary of the 9 January massacre, we urge everyone to join us on January 8 at 12:00 p.m. in Gare du Nord to hold the killers and the forces behind them accountable!"
