Another year, another Newroz. Amazingly, the Kurds have held firm. They are still enormously effective, men and women, all religions, all regions and all regional linguistic inflections. You are all wonderful.
There have been many losses. I deeply regret every single Kurdish life that has been lost in the violence. I regret every woman’s life broken by being kidnapped, sold in a market, raped, tortured.
I hope for the future, in particular the year this Newroz is ushering in. I send greetings and cheers to all of you who work for justice and freedom. I am glad there are so many of you.
Best wishes for Newroz to the Kurdish people and their friends, Lucina Kathmann
