A memorial was held in Rome for the martyrs of Kurdistan in the person of Hakim Acar (Şoreş Mardin), who was among the 7 guerrillas who fell as martyrs in the ambush of KDP forces in Xelîfan.
The memorial was held at the Ararat Kurdish Cultural Center and was attended by Kurdish people from Milan, Taranto, Livorno and Florence, as well as Italian activists who knew Şoreş Mardin.
The event started with a minute's silence in memory of all freedom fighters who fell as martyrs in Kurdistan, in the person of Şoreş Mardin.
Speaking afterwards, Idris Güzel said that Şoreş Mardin fought to establish a patriotic culture in the Kurdish society living in Italy, and that he struggled regardless of his health problems. He remembered that Şoreş returned to the mountains of Kurdistan to be a part of the guerrilla resistance and that he fell as martyrs with his friends because of the betrayal of the KDP.
Güzel said that it is not the first time that the KDP has betrayed Kurds, and that there have been many incidents in which PKK fighters fell as martyrs as a result of the KDP’s betrayal. “We cannot tolerate such attacks. If necessary, we will fight against the KDP as well as against all imperialist states and their collaborators.”
Güzel said that the patriotic Kurdish people always walk on the path illuminated by the martyrs and added: "Today, we are resisting these heavy attacks by walking on the path of our martyrs and we will definitely win."
Then, the letter sent by Şoreş Mardin and his comrades in Dersim was read.
