PAJK calls for expanded actions in unity with the rising women's revolution in Iran
PAJK calls on women and the Kurds at home and abroad to continue and expand their actions in unity with the rising women's revolution in Iran, saying, “The PAJK stands by women and our people. Our women in Rojhilat Kurdistan and Iranian are not alone.”
The Party of Free Women in Kurdistan Party (PAJK) called on women and the people in all parts of Kurdistan and abroad to expand their actions in unity with the rising women's revolution in Iran.
“JIN, JIYAN, AZADI (Woman, Life, Freedom), which is the motto of a free life and new democratic system, is rising from Kurdistan, resonating throughout the Middle East,” said the PAJK statement released on Friday, which further included the following:
“We commemorate with respect and gratitude Mahsa Amini, Shiler Resuli, the revolutionary martyrs and those who lost their lives in popular uprisings, and we condemn the dictatorial Iranian regime. It is not the first time the Iranian regime has killed a woman; Shirin Elemhuli and hundreds of other Kurdish revolutionaries, politicians, women and men have been executed by the Iranian regime, and hundreds of others are still imprisoned.
The Iranian regime, as a genuinely sexist, patriarchal and tyrannical system, is problematic not only because of its political practices, but as an entire regime altogether. It is misogynistic, anti-freedom and anti-democracy. The attacks directed at women are aimed at all the Kurds and all our Iranian people. Women and peoples, who have risen up under the slogan ‘JIN, JIYAN, AZADI’ following the murder of Amini, seek a democratic change by radically questioning the regime with all-out resistance. We praise the will of freedom and the stance of our Rojhilat-Iranian women and peoples.
'JIN, JIYAN, AZADI' MANIFESTS THE GENESIS OF A DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM
Our Kurdish, Persian, Azeri and Baluchi peoples, who have taken to the streets under the leadership of women with the awareness that women's freedom is the freedom of life, have the power to determine their own democratic future. In this respect, the rapid spread of the current uprisings is of great historical value. This is a women's revolution which implies that a social revolution will take place. The uprisings spreading from Rojhilat Kurdistan to the whole of Iran are revolts for freedom against the dictatorial Iranian Islamic regime. The slogans "JIN JIYAN AZADI!" and "DEATH TO THE DICTATOR!" frequently chanted during the protests represent a historical breakthrough for freedom. The slogan ‘JIN, JIYAN, AZADI’ manifests the genesis of a new democratic system.
A PROCESS OF LIBERATION UNDERWAY
An irreversible process of liberation is now underway. It is inevitable that the popular movement, which has developed under the leadership of women, will continue until it gets results. Democracy and freedom in Iran are taking shape with the social uprising developing under the leadership of women. It is time to introduce a democratic revolution in Iran based on the women's revolution. Resistance until victory is essential against all attacks of the oppressive, tyrannical regime. In this regard, it is extremely important that the streets are not abandoned, and the resistance increasingly continues.
Rising in Iran, the outcry for freedom is already gaining support from the Middle East and the world. All women in the Middle East see this revolutionary uprising as their own revolution and are marching to new revolutions. Women are determined to make the 21st century the century of women by carrying out a common struggle against sexist, dictatorial and reactionary regimes. On this basis, we call on women and our people living in all parts of Kurdistan and abroad to continue and expand their actions in unity with the rising women's revolution in Iran. The PAJK stands by women and our people. Our women in Rojhilat Kurdistan and Iran are not alone.
The joy of freedom of our Rojhilat-Iranian women and peoples has enfolded the entire Kurdistan. The support from Rojava and Bakur is a stance for freedom and patriotism. Bashur (South) Kurdistan is among the primary grounds where women need, the most, to unite with life, and life with freedom. We call on the women of Bashur Kurdistan to embrace the women of Rojhilat and Iran, to raise their voice and join the flow to democracy and freedom.”
