As many as 600 women and women’s organisations have undersigned a statement objecting to the war started by AKP against the Kurds, and calling for an immediate end to the ongoing conflict and recommencement of negotiations between two sides.
Besides women’s organisations, woman deputies, co-mayors, artists, intellectuals and writers have also undersigned the petition which accused the male-dominant mentality for making a historic mistake and committing a major crime against humanity by turning its back on democracy, peace, solution, equality and freedom.
The statement underlined that the ruling power of Turkey ended talks and put a war concept into execution while it was possible to take steps for democratization in the wake of the dialogue process, Dolmabahce Agreement and negotiations.
'WE WILL NOT ACCEPT THE WAR IMPOSED ON US'
The statement of women drew attention to the current situation in the Kurdish region where the whole life is dominated by tyranny, with every day witnessing dozens of arrests, bomb attacks, political and military operations, forest fires, forced migration and deaths of civilians and children.
Voicing strong belief in the possibility of a democratic solution and peace, the signatories highlighted that they as women of these lands, from every language, faith group and culture, will not accept the war imposed on them by the male-dominant mentality in order to maintain its own hegemony.
'EQUAL CONDITIONS FOR NEGOTIATIONS MUST BE ENSURED'
Calling for an immediate ending of the conflict and recommencement of the peace and democratic solution process, the statement underlined that concerned parties should come together under equal conditions and restart negotiations, and both sides should abide by the articles of the Dolmabahçe Agreement in order for the evolvement of negotiations into a lasting peace.
