The KJK praised the actions of patriotic people and women, as well as the YJA/STAR and HPG guerrillas fighting the Turkish genocidal war. “We call for expanded struggle to defeat the desperate enemy,” the KJK said.

The Community of Kurdistan Women (KJK) released a statement emphasizing that they were empowered by the successful actions of the YJA/STAR (Free Women’s Troops) and HPG (People’s Defense Forces) guerrillas who with a superhuman strength of resistance confronted Turkish airstrikes, drone and chemical attacks that even big states could not endure for a month. The KJK also praised Saturday’s Düsseldorf tally and the actions carried out by people and women.

“It is very important not only to endorse the guerrilla, but also to fight the enemy in a guerrilla style by increasing revenge and focusing on success. This war deserves an absolute victory under the leadership of HPG and YJA/STAR. The honourable struggle of women deserves victory, as does the fifty-year old Leader’s March on its fiftieth anniversary. Therefore, let’s focus on the victory line of Abdullah Öcalan, the resistance of the guerrilla, the persistent struggle of women and we will definitely win,” the KJK said.

The KJK’s statement titled “To the patriotic Kurdish people, the democratic public opinion and all pro-freedom women” is as follows:

“As we are about to welcome the 30th of June of 2022, our guerrilla forces are fighting with a growing determination in Zap, Avaşîn, Metîna, Botan and Amed, each one of them sacrificing himself/herself for the country and freedom just like Martyr Zîlan against the enemy. The guerrillas defy the colonial and genocidal system with great self-confidence and write epics of immortality in golden letters in the history of Kurdistan and humanity. We commemorate Martyr Zîlan and our comrades who were martyred in every part of Kurdistan’s land with love and respect, and we vow that we will destroy the Imrali system and create a free Kurdistan. Creating victory is the only way to be worthy of these great martyrs.

WE GET STRENGTH FROM THE SUBJECTS OF WAR

The most challenging war in history and our century is currently taking place in the mountains of Kurdistan. The Kurdistan guerrillas, whose love of country and land is tremendous, leave new and great marks in the course of history with their magnificent resistance and war and revive and augment the memory of freedom, which is currently in jeopardy, with its great communal spirit. The Kurdistan guerrillas who have a noble truth in their young and self-sacrificing hearts are mounting the guerrilla warfare of the 21st century in the strongest possible way with the war they have waged in Zap, Avaşîn and Metina. They are turning the Neo-Ottoman dreams of the fascist AKP-MHP government into a nightmare in Zap and frustrating its plans to update Lausanne on its 100th anniversary. On the 50th anniversary of our freedom movement, the guerrillas are eliminating the 100-year-old colonial-genocidal policies with their heart, mind, warfare style and incredible sacrifice. With a superhuman strength of resistance, they are confronting Turkish airstrikes, drone and chemical attacks that even the big states could not endure for a month. As the KJK, we praise the YJA/STAR and HPG guerrillas who are the subjects of this great war and we state that we gain great strength from their success and every blow they inflict on the enemy and congratulate them.

VIOLENCE OF DESPERATION

This great resistance and invincibility of our guerrillas proves once again the failure of all colonial policies. The great resurrection of the Kurds has reached a new stage with their struggle for existence and freedom. The call of the Kurdistan guerrilla to the enemy soldiers to “lay down arms” and the motto “This is Kurdistan, there is no way out” give the message that “your two-hundred-year-old policies have failed, now you have to change.” International and regional ruling powers must now see this reality and reshape their policies in Kurdistan by considering the invincibility of the free Kurds. The time of colonialism, genocidal policies, betrayal and collaboration have all been outmoded. Our strategy of free Kurds and free women and our insistence on this strategy has surpassed all of these classical policies. The attacks are nothing other than violence of desperation of the enemy and treacherous forces.

WE PRAISE THE ACTIONS OF OUR PEOPLE AND WOMEN

The important thing is to increase our struggle against fascism and colonialism in connection with this skilful and self-sacrificing war of our guerrilla as people and women, and to surround the enemy forces completely. At this very critical threshold of history, it is very important not only to endorse the guerrilla, but also to fight the enemy in a guerrilla style by increasing revenge and focusing on success. Most particularly, as women, we must develop a self-confident, organized and active struggling force that responds to genocidal and sexist attacks at the highest level. In all areas of Kurdistan, women-led activities are developing, and this is very meaningful. In this respect, we praise the actions of our people and women for guerrillas everywhere, in particular, the latest Düsseldorf rally. We should render these actions more fruitful and the enemy helpless. Only in this way can we be worthy of the resistance of our guerrillas and the immortality of our martyrs. The main message they delivered was about absolute resistance and victory.

THIS WAR DESERVES AN ABSOLUTE VICTORY

As the KJK, we call on all our people, especially women, young people, all public opinion and friends to expand the ongoing struggle. We call for the fire of struggle to be lit everywhere and the struggle to be raised in a way that will put an end to enemy forces. This war deserves an absolute victory under the leadership of HPG and YJA/STAR. The honourable struggle of women deserves victory, as does the fifty-year old Leader’s March on its fiftieth anniversary. On this basis, let’s focus on the victory line of Abdullah Öcalan, the resistance of the guerrillas, the persistent struggle of women and we will definitely win.”
