<<Kurdish Revolutionary Youth: Let's fight the patriarchy together
<We condemn the killings of women. Let's fight the patriarchy together,> said the written statement issued by the Kurdish Revolutionary Youth in Eastern Kurdistan calling on women's organizations and revolutionary organizations to unite.
News Center- While the oppressive policies against women in Iran and Rojhilat continue, more women are killed by the Iranian regime every day. The Kurdish Revolutionary Youth in Eastern Kurdistan issued a written statement condemning the killings of women and violence against women by the regime forces. The statement called on everyone to take to streets to protest the oppressive policies and violence against women.
'We have no choice but to win'
Recalling that three women named Negin Rostami, Firouzeh Moradi and Zohra Landi were murdered in the past few days due to the Iranian government policies, the statement said: <We condemn the killings of women. Let's fight the patriarchy together. One of the main reasons for the increase in crime and violence against women is the policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Strengthening women's struggle against the misogynistic policies, the patriarchal culture and mentality is a must. In addition, the active women's organizations and revolutionary organizations must unite to prevent femicide. Strengthening our revolutionary ties and taking a joint stand against all kinds of misogynistic policies is important.
'Islamic capitalism seeks victims'
<Negin Rostami was threatened many times by her ex-husband. She fought for her life at hospital after being set on fire by him. Firouzeh Moradi was stabbed to death by her brother. These massacres took place after the five-month revolutionary uprising of the Iranian peop-le. We cannot separate these massacres from 43 years of massacre policies, torture in prisons and poverty. Islamic capitalism seeks vic-tims for itself and its victims are women. Iranian women who have burned their headscarves have declared that they have burned their headscarves not only against Iranian laws, but also against all Iranian regime forces in the region.
'We must weave a common struggle'
<Men and women should join hands and weave a common struggle against all kinds of backward mentality. We can keep watches in groups of two or three against all kinds of crimes against women city-by-city and street-by-street for the safety of our lives and women in our neighborhoods. We have no choice but to win. We must first secure our lives and our freedom and then win a victory.> >>

<<Pakistan's textile industry is in crisis - and women are bearing the brunt of its decline
The threat of permanently lost jobs means many are frightened to speak up over basic labour rights. My organisation helps women fight for their jobs - and decent conditions
Over the years, women in Pakistan's once thriving textile industry have played a crucial role supplying Europe and the US with items from denim to towels. But since the pandemic, 7 million workers have been laid off due to low exports and the country's grave eco-nomic crisis. In my city, Faisalabad, hundreds of thousands of the 1.3 million textile workers - half of whom are women - have lost their jobs and the jobs of a huge number are on the brink. For Faisalabad's female textile workers the biggest worry is that these jobs will be lost for ever. That is worse than their delayed and underpaid salaries, the harassment they face at work and having no healthcare facilities. For those rural women who travel to the fac-tories from surrounding areas early in the morning and work long days for low pay, this is their only source of income. My city is known as the Manchester of Pakistan, and produces textiles for the world.
But the pressure on the industry is immense: electricity costs have doubled; floods have devastated cotton fields, adding to shortages; the government has placed limitations on credit. Hundreds of fac-tories have closed or are working short shifts. Workers have been fired. Even the cottage industry of female workers, sewing at home, lacks support or incentives. They make gloves, socks and stockings for less than a dollar a day. I believe this artisanal work has huge potential and the government should declare it an industry, ensuring respectable wages. The Women Workers' Alliance (WWA) is protes-ting against the mass layoffs in the industry, and demanding workers are paid. I’ve conducted education sessions with hundreds of women over labour laws and collective rights but still there is a lack of awareness. We estimate that of more than 150,000 workers in the hosiery sector alone, only 4,200 have social security cards. Women are reluctant to raise their voices because they fear it will mean losing their jobs. WWA has helped workers form anti-harassment committees in textile sectors and other industries.>>

'These women saved lives': the film inspired by surviving Rwanda's genocide
As a child, Jo Ingabire Moys saw the slaughter of her family. Thirty years on, her film Bazigaga, about a shaman heroine of the geno-cide, is shortlisted for a Bafta. As Jo Ingabire Moys lay wounded on the floor, surrounded by the bodies of her family, her 14-year-old neighbour, Arifa, came in to the house in Kigali to see if anyone was alive. Moments earlier, Ingabire Moys's father had prayed before the bullets sprayed their home. He was killed, with two of his children and a cousin; Ingabire Moys, two other siblings and her mother survived. <Our family name was on the list and they lined everybody up and shot us with the purpose of extermination,> says Ingabire Moys. <We didn't think anyone would survive.> It was 1994, and the Rwandan genocide had just begun. Ingabire Moys’s family were among hundreds of thousands of people targeted because they were Tutsis. Arifa, a Hutu, was the only neighbour to check on the family. She brought them supplies until they could escape from the city and helped bury their dead. <We were the only Tutsi family on the street. No one came to see what happened or to help, except her,> says Ingabire Moys. <She saved our lives.> Almost 30 years later, Ingabire Moys's experience, and all that followed, led her to make Bazigaga, a film about the Rwandan genocide, which has been nominated for a British Academy of Film and Television Arts award (Bafta). The winners will be announced on 19 February. The story follows a Tutsi pastor and his young daughter, who take shelter in the hut of a feared Hutu shaman, Bazigaga, and is inspired by the true story of Zura Karuhimbi, a Hutu woman believed to possess supernatural powers, who saved more than 100 people during the genocide. The film is also a tribute to Rwandan women and those who helped Ingabire Moys, now 33, during some of the darkest moments in her life. <I was fascinated by the role of women in the genocide,> she says. <Often you hear stories of women being victims, which they were, but I was interested in the other side. I felt like that's the story I could tell. I thought this was a great opportunity to pay homage to the Rwandan women who saved many lives, including my own.> Ingabire Moys heard the story of Karuhimbi when she visited the Rwandan genocide memorial aged 25. She had been living in the UK since she was 14 and wanted to reconnect with her family history. <Zura's story is unbelievable; it has so many layers to it. She was a woman who rescued hundreds of people on her own and the way she did it was using people’s superstitions against them. <[Her story] raised questions that I wanted to explore about Rwandan society. Why were people scared of someone like her, playing on their preconceptions of dark magic, but they weren’t afraid to kill people in churches?>The film looks at the dynamic be-tween the pastor and shaman, which Ingabire Moys says is <an allegory of the Hutu-Tutsi conflict>. <On paper, these are people who are as different as they could be, but once they're stuck to-gether you realise they're similar in many ways. The only thing that pulls them apart are false belief systems about each other.> >>

<<Boy arrested after girl, 15, stabbed to death in Northumberland
A teenage boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a 15-year-old girl was stabbed to death in Northumberland. Northumbria police were called shortly after 5.10pm on Friday to a report of a teenage boy and girl injured in the Priestpopple area of Hexham.
Emergency services attended where the boy and girl - aged 16 and 15 respectively - suffered serious injuries <consistent with having been caused by a bladed article>. They were both taken to hospital, where the girl died later that evening - the boy suffered serious, non-life-threatening injuries. The force said: <Both of their families are being supported by specially trained officers at this devastating time. An investigation was launched, and a 16-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of assault, and later on suspicion of murder. He remains in police custody. <Our thoughts are with all loved ones at this awful time, and we are supporting them in every way we can. We are determined to find out what happened & bring anyone involved to justice.> Ch Supt Sam Rennison, of Northumbria police, said it is <tragic news> and that police believe all those involved are known to each other. At a press conference on Saturday, she said: <First and foremost, our hearts go out to her loved ones at this truly devastating time. <A 16-year-old boy who was also injured during the incident remains in hospital in a stable condition. He and his family are also very much in our thoughts. An investigation was immediately launched and while this is at the very early stages, we do believe all those involved are known to each other. We would like to thank the public for their continued support and cooperation. In particular, those who tried to provide assistance yesterday to the injured boy and girl at the scene.> Derek Kennedy, the mayor of Hexham, told PA: <It's an absolute tragedy, the town is in complete shock, to lose one of our children who attends a local high school is just horrendous. Parents are really anxious for the health of their children because they're all a part of this community, the schools are all really anxious that their children are really feeling the pain and suffering and shock of such an awful incident.> >>

<<Sexual offences logged by police in England and Wales hit record high
There were 199,021 sexual offences and 70,633 rapes recorded by forces in year to September 2022
The number of sexual offences recorded by police reached a record high in the year to September, increasing by more than a fifth com-pared with before the pandemic. Home Office figures published on Thursday found there were 199,021 sexual offences recorded by forces across England and Wales in the year to September 2022, as well as 70,633 rapes. That was 22% higher than in the year ending March 2020, before the coronavirus pandemic. The number of recor-ded sex offences dropped during Covid-19 lockdowns, but there has been a sustained rise since April last year. The figures suggest a high number of historical sex crimes are being reported. Looking only at police forces that provide extra data to the Home Office, 22% of all sexual offences and 31% of rapes recorded were for crimes that had taken place more than a year earlier. Separate figures from the crime survey of England and Wales - used to measure the prevalence of actual crime over time – found no statistically significant rise in sex crime over the period, suggesting the increase in the police figures is at least partly because victims are more likely to come forward, and police are better at recording. A number of high-profile sexual assault cases happened over the year to September, including the sentencing of the police officer Wayne Couzens for the rape and murder of Sarah Everard, and the arrest of the police officer David Carrick, revealed to be a serial rapist. Diana Fawcett, the chief executive of the Victim Support charity, said: <This huge rise in recorded sexual offences comes as the percentage of cases seeing justice has plummeted to an abysmal new low. Charges for rape and sexual offences have been falling sharply for the past six years - the system is in crisis. We are on a path to destroying victims’ faith in the criminal justice system altogether. <Police and the CPS have a duty to survivors who have experienced life-changing trauma - they must do better and start delivering justice.> >>
