Kurds in all parts of Kurdistan have impressively participated in Newroz celebrations. This year’s celebrations for the Kurdish nation have consisted of historical messages about resistance, liberation struggle and peaceful stance. The peaceful proclamation of our leader, Abdullah Öcalan, as a beginning of a new phase of struggle, initiated a historic movement to the celebrations of this year’s Newroz in northern Kurdistan (Kurdistan region of Turkey). Also Kurds in western Kurdistan (Kurdistan region of Syria) proclaimed their resistance and unity and expressed their commitment to reinforce their struggle and working for stabilizing their political status. Kurds in southern Kurdistan have expressed their supports to the struggles of Kurds in other parts of Kurdistan. Although the Islamic Republic of Iran has banned Newroz celebrations in entire eastern Kurdistan (Kurdistan region of Iran), but Kurds in this part celebrated Newroz everywhere and largely participated in the celebrations. Kurds in eastern Kurdistan has shown their undefeatable stance against the Islamic Republic of Iran’s suppressions policies, an attitude which is reflecting the spirit of Newroz.
The declaration of our leader, Abdullah Öcalan, in the magnificent celebration in Newroz in Amed, presented a new phase of Kurdish liberation struggles. Therefore this proclamation, which was addressed to all nations in the Middle East, has a significant influence on all other parts of Kurdistan, especially in eastern Kurdistan. The ongoing process is not only concerning Turkey, but also the entire Middle East. As The Free Life Party of Kurdistan (PJAK), we express our support for this new phase.
As The Free Life Party of Kurdistan, we salute all Newroz celebration activities in all Kurdistan in general, and eastern Kurdistan in particular. We hope to witness the same attitude in all fields of struggles in this part of Kurdistan. This is the attitude we should resume against annihilation policy.
Based on this, we call our nation in eastern Kurdistan to strengthen their unity and reach their liberation struggles to the point of highest development in order to achieve freedom and democracy.
At the end, we again congratulate the New Year, Newroz and resistance struggles for freedom to our entire nation.
The Coordination of The Free Life Party of Kurdistan – PJAK
