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?

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.

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

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.
