Good evening compañeros and compañeras.
I also have the chance to talk to you a bit about what the situation was for women prior to 1994.
Women suffered through a very sad situation since the arrival of the conquistadors. They stole our land and took our language, our culture. This is how the domination of caciquismo [local despotism] and landowners came into being alongside a triple exploitation, humiliation, discrimination, marginalization, mistreatment, and inequality.
The fucking bosses had us as if they were our owners; they sent us to do all the work on the haciendas, without caring if we had children, husbands, or if we were sick. They never asked if we were sick; if we didn’t make it to work, they sent their servant or slave to leave the corn in…

YPG : June 25: Attacks by Daesh (ISIS) Terrorists on Northern Kobane.. Updated: Today, in Kobane, at least 50 people have been killed by Daesh terrorists, who attacked with 3 suicide car bombs, with one from the Turkish border at Kobane’s Mursitpinar border gate. Kobane hospital is currently unable to treat the injured all at once, for those with critical condition are attempted to be moved to North Kurdistan, Turkey. But Turkish military on the borderline are preventing the process of transferring the injured who most of them are women and children. Despite learning how serious situation of the wounded are, the Turkish military and their border officials are not responding consciously and they continue to keep the civilians waiting near the border crossing.
‘Women and children slaughtered… “According to medical sources and Kobane residents, at least 120 civilians were executed by IS in their homes or killed by the group’s rockets or snipers,” said Rami Abdel Rahman, who heads the UK-based Syrian Observatory.He said women and children were among the bodies found inside houses and on the streets of the town, which is close to the border with Turkey.
The ISIS terrorists have at 4 o’clock in the morning with the help of Turkish soldiers crossed the border. The ISIS terrorists were wearing the uniforms of YPG. So far 7 dead and 50 injured there. Our people need urgent help. All Kurds in Northern Kurdistan from Pirsus city (Suruç), please go to hospital, people in urgent need of blood ASAP!!!!! Please note all civilian people from Kobanê, please remain calm and don’t leave your homes!!!! In the center of Kobanê so far 10 people have died. In Berxbatan village are very heavy fighting between YPG fighters and terrorists of ISIS. It is difficult to know how many civilians have been killed in Berxbatan village [23 are reported dead so far]. Nobody from YPG was able to connect to the internet today because the Turkish telefon company “Tukcell” has been crippled….

-A group of Daesh (ISIS) terrorists who waged an attack on Kobane city this morning June 25, were repulsed by our forces of the People’s/Women’s Defense Units in an appropriate reaction to their quick and simultaneous assaults. During intense fighting near the city’s border gate at least 15 attackers have been confirmed killed, while a member of the terrorists has been captured alive.
For now, clashes continue within an extent where the terrorists encounter a total blockade by the Defense Units.

..In another outrageous ruling he Spanish Supreme Court has ratified the closure and seizure of 107 herriko (village) taverns in Euskadi (Basque Country). The pubs were accused of secretly supporting the Basque resistance 14 years ago. Although ETA has unilaterally ceased fire and disbanded since 2006 the repression by the Spanish State continues against any person or group accused of giving even verbal support to Basque Nationalism, with no political amnesty, continuing isolation of prisoners, torture and new arrests. If the Courts actually carry out the seizure it may provoke a new uprising in Euskadi. e
