KJK pays tribute to Sakine, Fidan and Leyla


The KJK Coordination issued a statement on the occasion of the anniversary of the Paris massacre.

The KJK said: “On 9 January 2013, one of the senior members of our movement, Sakine Cansız (Sara), was murdered in Paris together with militants Fidan Doğan (Rojbin) and Leyla Şaylamez (Leyla). This murder was organized in the center of capitalist modernity and carried out through an international conspiracy. This murder was designed and implemented by the Turkish state. It was carried out within the scope of the AKP war concept against Kurds.”

Erdoğan gave the order, MIT executed it

The statement added: “This murder was executed on AKP chief Erdoğan’s orders by MIT. Our leadership said the Paris massacre was a second Dersim massacre. This movement showed great resistance and opened the doors of freedom in order to end the sufferings of the Kurdish people and prevent further massacres.”

The statement recalled that the Dersim massacre memory has been fresh in many different generations and added that “Sakine, as a woman who is the representatives of her culture, she was feeling and moving with the determination that she will save and liberate Dersim by liberating Kurdistan. Therefore, our friends who were targeted in the Paris massacre were not randomly chosen. 

This was not an incident, but an attack and massacre against the senior figures of a people. Therefore, the Turkish state should be brought to justice.”

The statement ended with the following remarks: “In the 7th year of the Paris massacre, we remember Sara, Rojbin and Ronahi with respect. Every Kurdish person can play a role in the realization of the ideals of Free Kurdistan, Free Women and Society our three comrades had devoted their life to.”
