Jin Jiyan Azadi has been ringing out from Iranian occupied Kurdistan and has now spread throughout the entire Iranian state and around the world following the murder of Jhina Amini, a Kurdish woman, by the Iranian state.
The chant originates from decades of autonomous women’s organising and struggle by the Kurdish Women’s Movement which is the driving force of the whole Kurdish Freedom Movement.
We want to share and explore this history together as well as look at some of the ideas and principles that guide this movement for the liberation of all women and through it the liberation of society as a whole.
It is not necessary to read the text before hand (although it might help to get the most out of it), we will read it together in the session. People are also welcome to just take part in the discussion or to just come and listen.
