(en) cnt.es: Women Defend Rojava Madrid condemns Turkey's brutal attack on Helîncê (ca)
Wed, 8 Jul 2020 07:56:59 +0300
Kurdistan - Democratic confederalism ---- Women Defend Rojava condemns from Madrid the brutal murder of Zehra Berkel, mother Emîna Weys and
comrade Bedîea Mele Xelîl by Turkey. ---- Activists of Women Defend Rojava in Madrid have issued a statement condemning the brutal
aggression by the Turkish state against the population of Helîncê (Helence) in which three women lost their lives. ---- The full text of the
declaration is as follows: ---- "On the night of June 23, in the village of Helence, on the outskirts of Kobane (West Kurdistan, Syria),
drones from the Turkish army launched missiles at a civilian home where several women had gathered. Zehra Berkel, a member of the Kongra
Star Coordination of the Euphrates Region, mother Emîna Weys and our comrade Bedîea Mele Xelîl died as a result of that attack.
These three women fought side by side with thousands of other Kurdish, Arab, Assyrian, Circassian, Yazidi comrades from Northeast Syria, in
order to live in a democratic, free, egalitarian and patriarchal society.
At the same time, in Besre, in the Deir-ez-zor region of eastern Syria, a brutal attack has been carried out on the Women's House (Mala
Jin), where women mediate in family conflicts, from gender violence and support colleagues in vulnerable situations.
The war crimes of the Turkish fascist state against the advancement of women's freedom have intensified.
The revolution started in 2012, based on radical democracy, social ecology and the liberation of women, has continued to advance despite the
pressure and attacks from the various hegemonic forces that intervene in the region and the immense pain of seeing more die. of 12,000 of
his companions in the fight against the Islamic State over 5 years. Women in northeastern Syria are waging unrivaled resistance against the
occupying forces of the Turkish state and its jihadist allies.
All the allies of the Turkish state are also responsible for these attacks. The International Coalition and the Russian State are
responsible for the massacre of our comrades. We hold them accountable and make it clear that these savage attacks by the Turkish state must
cease and that international states and institutions must not be complicit in the femicide and genocide of the Kurdish people.
Military attacks against civil society are war crimes. Targeting the women who organize their society and who have a role in politics is a
crime against the future of women.
For this reason, we call on women and women's organizations around the world to take a clear stand against these attacks and to show
solidarity with the resistance of the women of Rojava. Furthermore, we call on the Kurdish people and all their allies to ceaselessly
intensify resistance and take action against fascism and treason.
The Turkish fascist state is a murderer of women. The goal of Turkish fascism and the butcher Erdogan is the slaughter of women who organize
to create an egalitarian society.
Once again we condemn these barbaric attacks. We promise our comrades Zehra, Bedîea and Mother Emîne that we will resist wherever the
fascist and misogynistic mentality manifests itself. This attack reinforces our commitment to seek freedom, and each fall in the fight
illuminates our path and our organization. We will guarantee the freedom of women and all peoples with Zehra, Bedîea and Mother Emîne as our
