The text read:
On behalf of the young woman in al-Raqqa and its countryside, we condemn the Turkish occupation on the territory of northern Syria. We, the young woman in al-Raqqa, will not accept this fascist occupation on the lands of our ancestors. This occupation on our lands wants to occupy the democratic thought of women and sabotage the coexistence and brotherhood of peoples in northern and eastern Syria.
We are a young woman, as we have defeated ISIS from Syrian territory. We will defeat Turkish fascism from Syrian territory and stand against the fascist Ottoman occupation, because women are the basis of democracy and infrastructure in the expansion and development of societies. We will not accept injustice, slavery and the Turkish fascist state on the lands of Afrin and Idlib, because Syria is a symbol of the honor. As a young woman, we are ready to protect our homeland and resist for our freedom.
