Let us turn the 21st century into the era of women’s freedom!
From the mountains of Kurdistan, in the lands where society developed with the leadership of women, we salute you with our great freedom, passion, ambition, and unbreakable struggle. From Rojava’s neighborhoods to South America’s forests, from Europe’s streets to Africa’s plains, from the Middle East’s valleys to North America’s plazas, from Asia’s mountains to Australia’s plateaus; with our love which knows no borders and with our most revolutionary feelings, we embrace all women who intensify the struggle for freedom and equality.

Peace in Kurdistan – Women Alliance for Kurdistan, Iraq and Syria
Dear Prime Minister
On International Women’s Day 2018 we call on your government to acknowledge and condemn the Turkish invasion of Afrin and the attacks currently taking place there against a women’s revolution in Afrin in Northern Syria.
The invasion constitutes a war of aggression and is therefore in breach of international law. Its continuation is in clear breach of Security Council Resolution 2401. Continue reading “WE DEMAND AN IMMEDIATE HALT TO TURKEY’S WAR ON THE PEOPLE OF AFRIN: OPEN LETTER TO PRIME MINISTER THERESA MAY”

Greetings message from Abdullah Ocalan, which was read at a rally on International
Women’s Day in Amed (Diyarbakir) on 3 March 2013.
First of all, I would like to express my dismay that International Women’s Day on 8th March is only on a single day because it must be one of life’s indispensable conditions that every day is a day for women and for freedom. But it makes it clear that women do not have any real control over their own lives. That women are only appreciated one day in the year makes the extent of their enslavement all too clear. For me, it is a theme on which I am concentrating more and more. I do not consider the woman question as independent from war. Like with all revolutions, even today’s, in particular the revolution in Kurdistan, the woman question is the most important theme that needs to be resolved. It lies right at the heart of every question that concerns war and the progress of a peace process.
