Women in Kurdistan march through the night for world peace

By Rudaw 8/6/2017

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - A number of Kurdish women artists and activists with the support of their Danish and British counterparts held a march in Erbil in a show of support for the well-being of humanity and to protest against violence and the killing of innocent people across the planet.
 
The women dressed in white clothes on Wednesday night holding candles, a symbol of peace, urging the world to unanimously stand against violence.
 
“The terror has spread and reached the whole world, and that has become a global issue,” Dashni Murad, a renowned Kurdish pop singer, told Rudaw. “The only way of confronting it is unanimity of the world.”
 
Shino Mohammed, another activist, shared her view too.
 
“As Kurdistan’s women and girls, we send out peace messages to the whole world,” she explained.
 
The women lit candles and stood in a moment of silence to pay tribute to the souls of the myriad number of people being killed on a daily basis.
 
“We are in a place today, so our full efforts should be aimed at achieving peace,” asserted Berivan Sarhang, a former Kurdish MP in the Kurdistan Region.
 
One of the Dutch activists who accompanied the Kurdish women activists said she was in the Kurdistan Region to raise their voice against terror.
 
“I am from Holland,” she explained. “I am here today to support humanity, to show solidarity with the world’s victims of terror.”
