TAJÊ condemns the murder of Mahsa Amini, expresses solidarity with women’s struggle

The Yazidi Women's Freedom Movement condemned the murder of Mahsa Amini by the Iranian regime forces and expressed their support for the women's resistance in East Kurdistan.

The Yazidi Women's Freedom Movement (TAJÊ) issued a written statement to condemn the brutal killing of Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini by the morality police in Tehran on September 14.

TAJÊ expressed their solidarity with the protests led by women in East Kurdistan and Iran, adding, “Women's struggle has achieved significant gains across the world.”

“Some anti-democratic regimes persistently continue to embrace misogyny against women's freedom struggles. Iran, where capital punishment is still rampant, is leading these anti-democratic countries. In Iran, misogyny is maintained and legitimized through religion,” the movement stated.

TAJÊ praised the people's insistence on resistance and struggle, saying, “Despite all the attacks, we praise the struggle introduced especially by the people and women of Rojhilat under the motto of Jin Jiyan Azadi (Women, Life, Freedom). Although the Iranian regime is resorting to violence against the protestors, it cannot end the protests. Many protesters have been killed or injured. We offer our condolences to the families of the martyrs.”
