Signatures collected for the "100 Reasons" campaign in Sulaymaniyah
In Sulaymaniyah city in southern Kurdistan, activists from the women's organization RJAK promoted the campaign "100 reasons to prosecute the dictator" and collected signatures.
The activities surrounding the "100 Reasons to Prosecute the Dictator" campaign initiated by the Kurdish Women's Movement in Europe (TJK-E) continue worldwide. In the metropolis of Sulaymaniyah in southern Kurdistan, activists from the women's organization RJAK (Rêxistina Jinên Azad a Kurdistanê) promoted the campaign and collected signatures with an information booth at the entrance to the central city park. A conspicuously large number of men showed interest in the initiative and put their names on the signature list.
With the campaign "100 reasons to prosecute the dictator" launched on November 25, the Kurdish women's movement wants to achieve that feminicide is recognized on an international level as a crime against humanity and that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is tried as the main perpetrator. The 100 murdered women presented with the campaign are symbolic of the uncounted deaths in the 18 years of Erdoğan's rule in Turkey. The goal is to collect 100,000 signatures by International Women's Struggle Day on March 8. The petition can also be signed online.
