Solidarity message to 8 March women’s organisation (iran-afghanistan)
To organisers and
participants of 7 March demonstration in London
Dear friends and comrades
I am very sorry that I cannot be with you in this important day to
both celebrate international women’s day and to show my solidarity with our
Iranian sisters and comrades.
As a political activist from Iraqi Kurdistan I would like to extend
my best wishes and support to you in this day for your very important struggle
for women’s rights in Iran
Iranian women have been in the forefront of a struggle for equality
and freedom and suffered much hardship and suppression by the Islamic regime,
yet they do not give up on their fair demands.
Their aspiration for liberation, equality and human rights has been
inspirational for many people around the world. The Islamic regime of gender
apartheid have 30 years of bloody history of oppressing women, denying their
rights, killing and stoning them for very basic rights.
The regimes acts of terrorism, violence and systematic oppression
against women are known to us all. The courageous fight of Iranian women
deserves worldwide solidarity and unconditional support.
Once again I would like to say happy international women’s day to
all freedom loving women and men both in Iran and internationally.
Representative of Organisation of Women’s
Freedom in Iraq.
