The campaign launched by women in Tabqa, Raqqa, Manbij and Deir ez-Zor on July 23 against the Turkish state’s occupation threats against North and East Syria with the motto “We united and triumphed. We will resist to defend and no to Turkish occupation”, continues.
As part of the campaign, female teachers in Manbij and surrounding villages, and members of the Training and Education Committee and the Democratic Civil Council of Manbij condemned the Turkish state’s threats against North and East Syria.
A statement read by Training and Education Committee member Nesrin Ehmed said the following; “We, teachers in Manbij and surrounding villages, have suffered great atrocities in the hands of the sovereign mentalities such as death, massacre and harassment. Women have always been targeted by the occupation forces as they are the vanguard of society.”
Remarking that an invasion by the Turkish state will never be allowed, the statement continued; “Against the fascist Turkish state which wants to revive the Ottoman period, we will be defending the values that have been gained with the blood of hundreds of brave martyrs, and we will stand as human shields to confront the plans of Erdoğan and his regime.”
The statement ended with slogans saluting the resistance against occupation.
