Re: The Imminent Execution of Ramin Hossein Panahi, a Kurdish Political Prisoner in Iran

Your Excellency,

Yet another Kurdish human rights activist, Ramin Hossein Panahi is in imminent danger of execution in Iran. According to Hossein Ahmadiniaz, Mr. Panahi’s lawyer the supreme court of Iran has upheld the death sentence rather than advising the proper legal functions and procedures to be followed. Although no documented charges have been brought against Mr. Panahi, he has been kept in solitary confinement and incommunicado, leading to his ongoing hunger strike against the unbearable prison conditions.  Mr. Panahi’s father, who had recently been able to speak to his son briefly on the phone, is apprehensive and wants the whole world to know about the imminent danger that his son faces. The terrified parents of Mr. Panahi have announced a sit-in front of the prison and have threatened that if their son is executed, they will also put an end to their own lives. The plight of this family is typical of many Kurdish and other Iranian families whose members are in prison, many of whom are on death row.

Exclusive; VOKRadio, Los Angeles

In honor of the Kurdish Women Writers, Voice of Kurdish American Radio for Democracy, Peace, and Freedom, from the U.S, in collaboration with the organization World Women for Life (WWFL), conducted interviews with women identified writers from Kurdish decent. In this series, we learn about the lives and work of these talented writers, as they share with us the inspiration behind their work and contribute their insightful wisdom on working as Kurdish writers in today's world. In these interviews, we learn about the writer's backgrounds, interests, their role models, motivations, the role of mother tongue and relationship to other languages, as well as their take on feminism in their writing, experiences of gender-based discrimination, and misogyny.

These writers work in diverse fields and span different genres of writing. Some are accomplished authors of novels, while others work in journalism, poetry, and non-fiction.

To Mehmet, now dead. To Airports, now closed.
To Homeland, now destroyed. 
To loss/ I can't recall where or how or whom.
To Kurdistan, of my imagination.
To Newroz, in diaspora.
To (lesser) loves, now gone...

What kinds of opportunities are we Kurds losing

What kinds of opportunities are we Kurds losing?

If we do not learn from our history then we are bound to repeat them. 

A short note by Azad Moradian

02/24/2018 

azad_moradian.jpg

We have been one of the biggest losers in history!

Yes, we have been betrayed by world powers in the past and continue to struggle with challenges to be recognized.

Yes, we have been under oppression and have faced genocide, war, and ethnic cleansing.

Yes, we lack adequate resources to educate our youth and keep them from being executed.

However, we cannot ignore the very fact that we have also often lacked strong compassionate leadership.

We have often lacked the right strategy and tactic.

We have done too little too late.

We have often been silent when we should have shouted, or not acted when we should have been up in arms.

Many times when we should have been at the negotiating tables we were too busy fighting amongst ourselves for power and position.

- ئەم وتارە لە ريكه وتى، ٢٠ی ژانویەی ٢٠١٨له رێورەسمی رۆژی کۆمەڵە لە شاری کۆڵنی ئاڵمان پێشکەش کراوە.

 

پیش دەستپێکی وتەکان ڕێگام بدەن بە بۆنەی ڕۆژی دامەزراندنی کۆمەڵە پیرۆزبایی خۆم ئاراستەی ئێوە ئازیزان و دڵسۆزانی مافی نەتەوەیی کورد بە‌گشتی، هەروەها تەواوی ئەو شۆڕشگێرانە بکەم کە لە ژێر ناوی کۆمەڵەدا درێژە بە خەباتی خۆیان لە پێناوی مافی چارەی خۆنووسین، ئازادی، دێموکراسی و دادپەرەری کۆمەڵایەتی، یەکسانی ژن و پیاو، هەروەها ئاشتی و سۆسیالیزم دەدەن. هاوکات سپاسی بەرێوەبەرانی ئەم سمینارە دەکەم کە ئەم دەرفەتەیان ڕەخساند هەتا بتوانین لە فەزایەکی دۆستانەدا ئاڵوگۆڕی بیرو ڕا بکەین.

باسەکەی من سێ تەوەرە لەخۆ دەگرێتەوە:

- یەکەم ئامانجی سەرەکی ئێمە وەکو کوردی ڕۆژهەڵاتی کوردستان،

- دووهەم مەسەلەی ئێرانی بوونی کوردی ڕۆژهەڵات و پاراستنی تەواویەتی ئەرزیی،

- سێهەم ئەرکی ئێمە وکو کورد لە پێوەندیی لەگەڵ ئاڵوگۆرەکانی دادێی ئێران و هەرچەشنە ڕاپەڕینێکی جەماوەریی.

A Letter to UN Secretary-General over Turkish threats to Syrian Kurds

A Letter to United Nations Secretary-General - António Manuel de Oliveira Guterres over Turkish threats to Syrian Kurds 

antonio_guterres.png
 
Dear Mr. Guterres:
  
January 25, 2018

I am outraged by the Turkish government's war propaganda and impending attack against Kurds in Syria, particularly, Afrin, and a city of about one million residents. I am certain that you are aware of the grave situation; however, I am alarmed and shocked that the United Nations has yet to counter such aggressive assertions and actions perpetrated by Turkey in defiance of all international laws and obligations. According to Democratic Union Party or PYD and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the Turkish forces have escalated artillery and rocket shelling on the surrounding areas of Afrin in the northwestern part of Syria, causing several deaths, considerable damage and destruction.
