Voting independence is both a patriotic and human duty that no honorable people can fail. You Kurd ,on 25 September you have to go voting independence, save your dignity and salvage your responsibilty towards the future generations of Kurds, don't condemn them to slavery and all the hardships we have sufered under the foreigne tyrany for one hundred years since our country has been partitioned among the terrible enemies who have submitted us to every kind of abuses ,death and genocide. Our brave martyrs who died for us are watching us and they will haunt those who defect them for the time to come and till eternity .
