Activists in Duisburg protest violence against women

Violence against women was protested with an action held by the Martyr Asia Yüksel Women's Council in Duisburg.

The weekly action organised by the Martyr Asia Yüksel Women's Council at Avendunkplatz reached week 13.

The European Kurdish Women's Movement (TJK-E) condemned the violence against women carrying flags and banners.

Rehşan Yıldırım underlined that murders of women have increased in recent months both in the world and in Turkey.

“The Kurdish Freedom Movement will give the necessary answer to this colonial rapist mentality towards the Kurdish people and women, as always, on the basis of self-defense," said Yıldırım.

The speakers also condemned "Turkey and the abduction of women in Afrin.”
