ROJAVA A NEW BORN COUNTRY

After more than two and a half years of war, Syria is destroyed by the agony of bombs. The revolution, borned with democracy and freedom’s aims, has slowly turned into an islamist war for the land’s control. The Free Syrian Army has crumbled and, day after day, the jihadist groups are taking more and more power.

In this apocalyptic scenario, the Syrian Kurdistan raises its voice and carries out its dreams of freedom. After years of internal strife against Assad’s government, the Kurds, now taking advantage of the civil war, are preparing themselves for the enactment of a new state, the Rojava or Syrian Kurdistan.

US Kurds Stage Hunger Strike and Mock Sex Slave Auction in front of the White House

Kurdish-Americans urge action to rescue Yezidi and Christian women held captive by IS in Iraq and Syria!

Three Kurdish Americans, Goran Slemani, Sarkan Kurdee, and Chato J Fado, and friends of Kurd, Amy Howard and Evin Phoenix, have initiated a five-day hunger strike in front of the White House between October 27th and 31st. The event is endorsed by theKurdish National Congress of North America and sponsored by Kurdish Human Rights Watch (KHRW).

Thousands of innocent Yezidis, Christians and other ethnic and religious minorities have been abducted by Islamic State (IS) terrorists in Iraq and Syria. According to Kurdish Human Rights Watch, IS has systematically abducted thousands of men, women, and children and is holding them captive at makeshift detention centers in Iraq and Syria. Most of the girls and women stolen have been forced into marriage and sexual slavery, and countless more face daily rape and trauma. All have been forced into religious conversion.

US Kurds are staging a hunger strike next week from Monday, October 27 at 10:00am until Friday, October 31 at 6:00pm in an effort to raise awareness about this dire situation and to increase pressure on the US and others to step up efforts to retrieve these women and girls quickly and safely. A mock IS sex slave auction will be held from 12:00-3:00pm on Friday, October 31st to further illustrate the urgency of the situation and desperation of the captives.
 
Kurdish National Congress of North America and Kurdish Human Rights Watch, hunger strike organizers and members, along with an unprecedented coalition of Kurdish, Kurdish-American, and interfaith organizations, stand together in condemnation of these abductions and call on the US and coalition partners to take immediate action to locate and rescue these innocent women and girls before it is too late.

Los Angeles: Hundreds of pro Kobanê activists marched on in Westwood, Los Angeles to condemn the Islamic State and their murderous onslaught against Kurds, saying that they will continue their combat against ISIS terrorism in Kobanê. Women activists were making improvised signs as more protesters joined the demonstration. The statement issued by the Kurdish community as one of the main organizers of the event, read,

"We stand in solidarity with the people of the besieged Kobanê and call for prompt action to save the residents and defenders of the city from a massacre. The IS terrorists have captured sizeable portions of the city despite the fierce and heroic resistance of Kurdish freedom fighters. Hundreds of people have died and over 200000 people have been driven away from their homes, stranded in border areas, their fields ravaged, their belongings plundered, and their children traumatized. Many are mourning the loss of their loved ones, their homes, and their land."
