Kurdish journalist feminist Zehra Doğan and Mazlum Dogan arrested and jailed
Our editor #ZehraDoğan detained!!! #Jinha #editor
The editor of the feminist news agency Ajansı Jin Haber, Zehra Dogan, and Mazlum Dogan, deputy adviser in Mardin for Democratic Peoples Party (HDP) Ali Atalan were arrested two days ago in Mardin. They were sitting in a cafe in that city of Turkish Kurdistan. Zehra and Mazlum were sent to Nusaybin…
Her work as a journalist as “evidence of crime”
Zehra’s journalistic activity has been considered by the Turkish authorities as proof of propaganda organization. Police have provided as evidence her reporting of the situation in Nisêbîn / Nusaybin, ( see Genocide in Europe: Nusaybin surrenders after 74 days ..in total ruins and deafening silence) social Facebook messages on the network, drawings and news testimonies.
Logically the feminist journalist denied all charges and said she belongs to the Turkish Journalists Union (TGS) and all the news reported is within the scope of journalistic activity.

Greetings on March 8 Womens day led them to prison
Meanwhile, Mazlum Dogan has been accused of attending activities with the Deputy Ali Atalan. Police criminalize his actions in the media around March 8th when he read the following textual statement:”Happy International Women’s Day happy all working women and women from insurgents Clara Rosa, Sakine Seve. Jin Jiyan Azadi” (Women, Life, Freedom). Such words, in the Kurdish language, are regarded as a crime.

website, the telecoms watchdog has said, after nearly 300,000 emails from president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s ruling Justice and Development party (AKP) were put online as Ankara grapples with the aftermath of a failed military coup.
The emails date from 2010 to 6 July this year. Obtained before the attempted coup, the date of their publication was brought forward “in response to the government’s post-coup purges”, WikiLeaks said on its website, adding that the source of the emails was not connected to the coup plotters or to a rival political party or state.

Rojava is the start. There is lots to do. We need skilled and revolutionary people who are motivated. We need specialists of all kinds.
Rojava is a New Revolutionary Confederation
Rojava is an autonomous region in north Syria. The region gained its autonomy in the summer of 2012 in the process of the Syrian uprising, establishing a society based on principles of direct democracy, gender equity, and sustainability. Rojava consists of the three cantons called Jazira, Kobani and Afrin.
The Coopfunding campaign raised 98K euros, now closed, (14 July16), but the contribute page lists various ways people for people to participate and help this cause. Also right now volunteers can`t get into as the siege is total.
What’s The Plan?
In 1 year, we are going to implement these projects. Bringing the latest decentralized solutions to Rojava.
We will solve Rojava’s food shortage problems. Every year Rojava imports 150 million dollars of fertilizer that can be easily produced locally. See the Wiki page → Continue reading Rojava Revolution Plan: Organising and Funding Projects and Volunteers
