The arrival of spring naturally always brings with it feelings of hope and renewal; this year Newroz comes at an especially momentous period in the history of the Kurdish struggle for freedom and self-determination.
The opening up of dialogue between Turkey and Kurdish leaders represents a much anticipated opportunity for a real breakthrough in the peace process.
The hopes and aspirations of the Kurdish people in Kurdistan and in the diaspora will inevitably be raised at this historic moment when steps towards a lasting solution now look to be unfolding after years of bitter conflict.
Peace in Kurdistan Campaign is proud to join the Kurdish people in their Newroz celebrations and remains steadfast in its commitment to the search for a peaceful democratic solution to this historic struggle which has inspired generations and peoples throughout the world who are denied the basic rights of liberty and human dignity.
Happy Newroz! Newroz Piroz Be!
