(en) Armenia, Yerevan, ACAB: Jin, jiyan, azadî! The Kurdish community and the "Black Banner" group at the celebration of March 8 in Yerevan (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 16 Mar 2023 08:41:31 +0200

On March 8 in Yerevan, the anarchist group "Black Banner" took part in the celebration of International Women's Day together with the Kurdish community, thus expressing solidarity with the Kurdish struggle. ---- Kurds have a clear feminist stance: women are represented both in the military and in politics. One of the important roles in the fight against the Islamic State in Syria was played by Kurdish units, where women fought on an equal basis with men.
As we were told by representatives of the "Black Banner", during the rally, they recalled the ideas of Abdullah Ocalan that it is time to liquidate the statist and patriarchal civilization that has existed for 5 thousand years, and to oppose capitalism with a new democratic system where women will be free. The demonstrators also shouted slogans in support of Ocalan, calling for his release from a Turkish prison on the island of Imrali.

"For us, anarchists from Armenia and other countries, both the struggle of women and the national liberation struggle of the Kurdish people are extremely important and dear, in which, as Abdullah Ocalan said to Apo, the role of women is incredibly great," writes Black Banner . - Now Kurdish women are fighting with weapons in their hands against Islamists and Turkish occupiers in Syria and Iraq, they are protesting against obscurantists and sadists from the IRGC in Iran after the murder of a Kurdish woman for the "wrong" hijab, they were able with the help of solidarity and self-organization, through the creation their councils and cooperatives, to build an alternative to the capitalist and patriarchal civilization in Rojava.

It is also important to remember that Armenian women are fighting side by side with the Kurds in the same Syria, and the Armenian liberation is impossible without the Kurds."
A rally of solidarity with the protesters in Georgia will be held in Yerevan. A column of anarchists under a black and red flag will take part in it

In connection with the ongoing atrocities in Georgia, members of the Yerevan-based anarchist organization "Black Banner" are calling for joining a rally of solidarity with the Georgian people, organized by representatives of the Russian anti-war diaspora . The action will be held on Saturday, March 11, at 15:00 on the Northern Avenue in Yerevan.

" As Pyotr Alekseevich Kropotkin once said: 'Rights are not given, rights are taken', " the members of the Black Banner write . We would like to support our anarchist comrades who are participating in these protests at this action .

We will come to the action in a column under our black and red banner. Our allies will also attend the action - the organization of the Ukrainian diaspora "Spilnota Enotiv" ("Ukrainians and our allies") . Solidarity knows no bounds!
