Shengal Women’s Assembly held the 2nd Conference with the participation of hundreds of delegates and guests.
The conference was attended by Kongra-Star members from Rojava Kurdistan, Newroz Camp, YJA-STAR guerrillas defending Êzidî people in Mount Shengal, women from Shengal, journalists from Europe and Koma Civaken Kürdistan (Kurdistan Communities Union, KCK) Co-Presidency Council Member Sozdar Avesta.
The conference which was participated by around 300 delegates began with one minute’s silence in memory of those martyred in freedom struggle.
Speaking here, KCK Co-Presidency Council Member Sozdar Avesta condemned all those responsible for the massacre and displacement of Êzidî people, and saluted Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan, PKK movement, YJŞ (Shengal Women’s Units), Êzidî Women’s Assembly, all the guests attending the conference, and all the martyrs who fell mounting resistance against massacres and genocides.
Avesta pointed out that they were holding the conference with the ultimate goal of rescuing the women enslaved by ISIS, adding: “We will free those women at the soonest time. We owe to them and we are giving a struggle to liberate those women who are enslaved at the hands of ISIS but are with us in heart and spirit.”
Avesta said the 2nd Shengal Women’s Assembly Conference was aimed at not only evaluating the annual activities of the Assembly and the current situation of Shengal women but also re-organising the Êzidî women and rendering them stronger and more organised.
Avesta put emphasis on the importance of carrying on the struggle in order for the return of displaced Êzidî people, liberation of the enslaved women and ensuring their self-defense once they are back home. She stressed that: “Those who caused the Êzidî people to suffer the 74th genocide in their history are afraid of the unity of Shengal people and the struggle of Shengal women, for which reason they want to break the will of Shengal people and women. They want to enslave Shengal women and render them unable to resist atrocity and repression. With this genocide, they want to drive them apart from their land, culture and history. The struggle given by Êzidî women against all these is a sacred one. Êzidî people were massacred, suffered a genocide, suppressed, burned and tortured dozens of times but they never gave up on their cause, language, culture and history. They never bowed down the head against atrocity and cruelty.”
Addressing Êzidî women, Avesta continued as follows: “You, women of Ezidxan, are not alone. Your revolution takes its roots from 40 years of struggle, labour of Leader Apo and women, women’s formation of an army and party. You are a part of this labour. We need to protect and embrace the enslaved and displaced women. We need to strengthen our unity and avenge the massacred Êzidî women. I reiterate that martyrs are immortal, that the struggle of Shengal women will triumph and that the freedom struggle will develop under the leadership of free women.”
Messages of PAJK, KJK, Efrin Êzidî Women’s Assembly and Êzidî Women’s Assembly in Europe were read out after Avesta’s speech. Activity report was also read out and approved, and a committee for the organisation of women was established.
Permakültür tasarımı, kavramsal, maddi ve stratejik bileşenleri tüm canlıların yararına çalışan bir model içinde bir araya getiren bir sistemdir. Permakültür’ün arkasındaki, doğaya aykırı olmaktan ziyade onunla birlikte çalışma, uzun süreli düşüncesizce hareket etmekten ziyade uzun süreli özenli gözlem yapma, sistemlerin sadece bir ürününün peşinde koşmaktan ziyade onlara bütün işlevleriyle bakma ve sistemlerin kendi evrimlerinin gerçekleşmesine izin verme felsefesidir.
Permakültür, sürdürülebilir insan yerleşimleri kurgulayabilmemizi sağlayan bütünsel bir tasarım bilimidir. Bill Mollison permakültürün etik ilkelerini şöyle sıralamaktadır:
– Yeryüzüne Özen Gösterme; bütün yaşam sistemlerinin, canlı cansız bütün varlıkların devamı ve çoğalması için gerekli koşulları sağlama.
– İnsanlara Özen Gösterme; insanların gıda, barınak, eğitim, tatmin edici iş ve keyifli insan ilişkilerine sahip olarak sağlıklı bir şekilde varolmaları için gerekli kaynaklara ulaşmalarını sağlama.
– Nüfus ve Tüketime Sınır Getirme; kendi ihtiyaçlarımızı kontrol altına alarak yukarıdaki ilkeleri desteklemek için kaynak ayırabiliriz. Zaman, para veya enerji cinsinden olabilecek bu kaynakları birinci ve ikinci ilkelerin gerçekleştirilmesinde kullanabiliriz.

‘WOMEN AND CHILDREN MAIN VICTIMS OF HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN THE MIDDLE EAST’
Representatives of many non-governmental organisations spoke during today’s session, that all pointed to the increasing violence in the Middle East and other countries around the world.
NGO representatives put emphasis on ISIS terror attacks and increasingly ongoing human right violations caused by the conflict across the Middle East territory. Speakers also stated that world countries did not put forth democratic politics in the face of these human rights violations.
NGO representatives highlighted that civilians, mainly women and children, suffer from violence at the hands of states across the Middle East, and many states around the world subject people to torture, extrajudicial killings and death, mainly in Pakistan, Iran, Syria and Iraq. Speakers also mentioned numerous human rights violations perpetrated all around the world that are not seen by the United Nations.
‘TURKEY HAS DESTROYED CITIES WITH MILITARY OPERATIONS’
Speaking during the session, Derek Brett on behalf of the International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR) recalled that the Turkish state has razed many cities in the Kurdish region to the ground by means of military operations.
Brett said: “Our local contacts in Turkey report us about a huge scale of human rights violations in the southeastern region of the country. Civilians are being targeted through military operations and suffering extrajudicial killings. Residents of the destroyed cities are subject to forced displacement.”
IFOR representative Derek Brett called on Turkey to open its door to the UN and return to peace talks with Kurds immediately.
