Women murdered in Paris and Silopi commemorated in Sydney

Sydney paid tribute to the Kurdish women revolutionaries murdered in Paris and Silopi.

Sakine Cansız, Fidan Doğan, Leyla Şaylemez, who were murdered in Paris in 2013 and Sêvê Demir, Fatma Uyar and Pakize Nayır, who were murdered in Silopi in 2016 by the Turkish state forces, were commemorated in Sydney, Australia.

DTK co-chair and Hakkari MP, Leyla Güven, joined the memorial via Skype. "We will be worthy of these brave women by turning their ideal of free Kurdistan, free women and society into reality."

DKTF co-chairman Ismet Taştan said: "These murders were organized in the center of capitalist modernity by an international conspiracy. These murders were designed and implemented by the Turkish state."

Taştan added that the killings were ordered by Erdoğan as a "continuation of the 15 February conspiracy."
