WOMEN RISE UP FOR AFRIN
The “Women Rise Up For Afrin”
campaign is a call to the international community that was launched on February 8th, 2018, by Kongra Star Afrin. It drew attention on the attacks on Afrin and connected women all around the world in solidarity. A part of
it was also the mobilization for March
8th, 2018– International Women’s
Day, where hundreds of women
went to Afrin under the continuous shelling and bombardment of the Turkish army to show solidarity directly and physically.
We call on all women to support Northern Syria’s resistance against occupation— whether the occupation forces are ISIS, al-Qaeda, or Turkey— and to remember that what is under attack is especially the women’s revolution. Therefore the liberation of Afrin is a milestone on the way for liberation of women everywhere.
