We celebrate our common struggle and the symbol of enlightenment: World Kobane Day

Statement by our Co-Chairs Tülay Hatimoğulları and Tuncer Bakırhan:

We salute the 9th anniversary of humanity's victory over the darkness of DAESH in Kobane.

The government of Turkey and its politicized courts seek revenge against the common struggle that achieved, in Kobane, the victory of enlightenment. We once more promise to our comrades who are on trial in the Kobane Case that we will strengthen our struggle.

We know that the current attacks against the soul of North and East Syria aim to end what DAESH could not.

We will never give up our solidarity with the peoples of Rojava, where a common and democratic life is growing.

Both the Kobane resistance and internationalist solidarity are brightening our present and our future. Let 1 November, World Kobane Day, be a source of joy and encouragement for all Kurdish People and all oppressed peoples around the World. #WorldKobaneDay
