(en) [Turkey] We are the women of Anatolia and Mesopotamia By ANA (pt) [machine translation]
Wed, 13 Mar 2019 10:29:07 +0200
We have lived in the dark days of history. For decades the people of these lands have been
increasingly oppressed. We have seen poverty, we have seen war, we have seen those who
escaped and survived the state war, but are murdered in the war of capitalism or
patriarchy. We have seen our sisters tortured, stabbed, murdered, dragged naked,
shattered, burned alive. We have seen our children crushed and run over, we have seen the
Mothers of the Sabbath (Cumartesi Anneleri) asking for justice and we have seen the
killers trying to silence our mothers by attacking them or by arresting them. We have
faced many cruelties and we resist them all, and we will resist to the end.
We are the women of these lands, we have witnessed the fall of many states, many kings and
many sultans. While the story of "man" repeats itself, we are discovering and writing
another story, our story, the story of rebellion and resistance. We know the women who
have been fighting against the patriarchy, we know the women with their hands in their
chairs, ready to shake their fists. Because we are all these women, and while we are
creating another story, we create culture. A culture of empathy, understanding and
solidarity, excluding relations of authority and obedience. A culture of responsibility,
to have our lives in our hands, sustaining our struggle for our freedom.
Sisters, comrades, our struggle is the struggle of the oppressed against the oppressors.
Any place where the hierarchy of power appears, becomes a combat zone. Any time the
oppressor uses the tools of violence, we do not hesitate to resist and counterattack.
Fighting against the "visible" and "invisible" patterns of authority and patriarchy, we
will be able to renew the revolution from now on and from here.
Wherever we are, we know and understand each other, because it is the same light that
shines in our eyes, it is the same cry in our voice.
Your struggle and solidarity gives us inspiration and strength.
Continue with your struggle, we will do it!
