Women from Rojava: Resisting mothers are not alone
"We started a resistance, and we will not stop until the last drop of our blood. We will continue to be in the streets. Erdogan should know that like we broke ISIS attacks, today Erdogan will end. History will one day hold him to account."
Women marching in Qamishlo to protest the Turkish state attack against prisoners’ mothers said the resistance will continue.
Free Yazidi Women’s Movement Europe (TAJE-E) member Cazya Husen Havrano, protester from Tirbespiye Menife Sait Cuma and Kongreya-Star Martyrs’ Families Institution Member Necah Gulo said the Kurdish mothers are not alone.
HAVRANO: THE RESISTING MOTHERS ARE NOT ALONE
Free Yazidi Women’s Movement Europe (TAJE-E) member Cazya Husen Havrano said: “Attending these protests is a great honor. I bring support and greetings from women in Shengal and Europe. Today we are here to support the protests by the Peace Mothers, and our friends in prisons and on hunger strikes. We will follow and support them, our guerrillas and Leyla Guven until the last drop of blood in our bodies.
I bow with respect before Leyla Guven and the hunger strikers from Rojava to Amed. I state once again that we as the Yazidi Women’s Assembly will stand by them to the end. We will stand by this resistance to the end and follow the path of our Leader Abdullah Ocalan and our martyrs. Erdogan should know that Kurdish mothers are not alone in four parts of Kurdistan or Europe.
CUMA: WE ENDED ISIS, WE WILL DEFEAT THE FASCIST TURKISH STATE
Menife Sait Cuma who came from Tirbespiye said: “I salute the hunger strikers from here and condemn the fascist Turkish state’s tyranny against mothers of prisoners. The mothers have no guns or anything else that could cause harm, but they attacked our elderly mothers anyways.
Today we support our mothers who stood tall against the enemy, our people should support them too. Those mothers only want to take their children out of those prisons and to end the isolation against our Leader. Today we, like every other people, want to see our leader among us. This is our natural right. Everybody should be able to object to this tyranny, and everybody should do all they can to end it. We have 11 thousand martyrs in Rojava, we are ready to give 11.000 more for peace, for Leader Apo’s freedom, for Leyla Guven and all our friends. Today YPG and YPJ forces are still fighting in the field against the enemies of humanity sent by the Turkish state and others. We ended ISIS, and we will defeat the fascist Turkish state. We are happy that Rojava has been cleared of ISIS. They thought they could send the prison escapees and dark forces from European countries and Turkey to Rojava and believed that could end the Kurdish people. They were wrong. These forces couldn’t stand against the will of Kurdish women and their children, and they can’t. We as the mothers of martyrs will be in the streets day and night.
GULO: WE WON’T ABANDON THE RESISTANCE
Kongreya-Star Martyrs’ Families Institution Member Necah Gulo said: “Yesterday was Mothers Day and Erdogan again ordered them to be dragged from their arms. We condemn the Turkish state for the femicides every day and the injustices in their trials. We state that we stand with the friends on hunger strikes and we always support them.
We condemn the international powers and European states who have remained silent in this issue and say we have had enough of the silence. Like all mothers around the world, we won’t stop and we will continue to stand with our mothers and children. I state once again that we stand with Leyla Guven, our people in resistance and our Leader to the end. We started a resistance, and we will not stop until the last drop of our blood. We will continue to be in the streets. Erdogan should know that like we broke ISIS attacks, today Erdogan will end. History will one day hold him to account. We as mothers will resist until we free this community and our Leader.”
