In Silêmanî in Southern Kurdistan, activists of the women’s organisation RJAK promoted the campaign “100 reasons to condemn the dictator” and collected signatures.
The activities around the campaign “100 reasons to condemn the dictator” initiated by the Kurdish Women’s Movement in Europe (TJK-E) continue worldwide. In the southern Kurdish metropolis of Silêmanî, activists of the women’s organisation RJAK (Rêxistina Jinên Azad a Kurdistanê) promoted the campaign with an information stand at the entrance to the central city park and collected signatures. A noticeable number of men showed interest in the initiative and put their names on the signature list.
With the campaign “100 reasons to condemn the dictator”, launched on 25 November, the Kurdish women’s movement wants to achieve that feminicide is recognised on an international level as a crime against humanity and that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is tried as the main perpetrator. The 100 murdered women presented with the campaign are symbolic of the uncounted deaths in the 18 years of Erdoğan’s rule in Turkey. The aim is to collect 100,000 signatures by International Women’s Struggle Day on 8 March. The petition can also be signed online.
In Silêmanî, an information stand will be set up again on Monday at the same square.
