Kedis­tan joins in and shares this urgent fem­i­nist call for Afrin and the women of Roja­va. Your turn to share…



The Turk­ish state is bomb­ing and threat­en­ing to destroy Afrin.
This attack kills dozens of civil­ians, most­ly women and children.

Afrin has been a rel­a­tive­ly safe area in the region for a long time, and has host­ed hun­dreds of thou­sands of Arab refugees, par­tic­u­lar­ly from Aleppo.

The peo­ple of Roja­va are build­ing a new soci­ety, in which the dif­fer­ent eth­nic groups liv­ing there orga­nize them­selves with their iden­ti­ties in a demo­c­ra­t­ic, fem­i­nist and eco­log­i­cal system.

This aggres­sion has a destruc­tive pur­pose which also threat­ens the rev­o­lu­tion of the women in Roja­va, who no longer sub­mit to a patri­ar­chal regime and have the courage to build a soci­ety of free­dom for them­selves and there­fore for all.

This is unbear­able to Erdo­gan, who fears con­t­a­m­i­na­tion in the Mid­dle East and beyond, Roja­va is an exam­ple of wom­en’s lib­er­a­tion chich under­mines the idea of States at the ser­vice of nation­al­ism, cap­i­tal­ism and reli­gious extrem­ism, all based on the dom­i­na­tion of women.

We demand an imme­di­ate halt to the bomb­ing and inva­sion of Afrin, which does­n’t respect inter­na­tion­al law.
For this rea­son we demand a firm posi­tion of the UN, the EU and the gov­ern­ments of the coun­tries involved in the coali­tion: Rus­sia, France, USA, Unit­ed King­dom. They must put pres­sure on Turkey to stop this aggres­sion and make Erdo­gan with­draw his troops from Syria.

We call on you to spread this call and to raise aware­ness on the con­struc­tion of this soci­ety which says “Yes, it is pos­si­ble to live as human beings freely, equal­ly, respect­ful­ly of nature, and in order to do so, fem­i­nism is an essen­tial means”.
