Women in Athens condemn murder of Evin Ekrem

Hundreds of women in Athens condemned the murder of Kurdish woman refugee Evin Ekrem Ali.

A protest was held in Athens to condemn the murder of Kurdish woman refugee Evin Ekrem Ali by her husband. Evin Ekrem Ali was brutally killed on the upper floor of the police station used in Lavrio to shelter refugees.

Along with Kurdish women many women from the left, socialist and anarchist groups participated in the march, which started in Akademia Square.

Hundreds of women marched chanting the slogan "Jin, Jiyan, Azadi" and carrying banners written in Greek, Kurdish and Turkish as well as YPG flags and photos of Evin Ekrem.

After the march, a rally was held in front of the Greek Parliament.

A statement prepared in Greek, Turkish and Kurdish was read at the rally, which started with a minute silence for all murdered women.

The statement underlined the importance of the Kurdistan Freedom Struggle for women, not just in Kurdistan but all over the world.

Following the action, a file was submitted to the Greek Parliament containing the women's request.
