This is what international solidarity looks like! Kurdish women’s militia members sent this video solidarity statement to the women of Latin America fighting for free, safe, and legal abortion on demand. The Spanish subtitles read:
“We the women of the YPG, the women’s self-defense militias, salute all the women fighters of Latin America. We want these women to know that we are not just taking up a military struggle against ISIS but that also one of the main goals of our struggle is to create a new society where women are free. This is why we want to express our solidarity especially with the women of Argentina who have shown such consistent solidarity with the Movement of Kurdish Women. Here we want to express our support for the right of all women to free, safe, and legal abortion. As Kurdish women, we are closely following your struggle.
“Not one more woman dead due to a back-alley abortion!
“¡Jin Jian Azadi! –Women, life and freedom!”
