The area where Amed Newroz will be celebrated began to fill up hours before the start of the program, accompanied by “Bijî Serok Apo” slogans.

The finale of the Newroz celebrations, held this year with the slogan “Rabe dema azadî û serkeftinê ye”, is being held in Amed. Tens of thousands of people began to flock to the area from many parts of the city in the early hours of the morning.

Giant posters of Kemal Kurkut, a young student who was murdered by the bullet of the Turkish police during Newroz 2017, Deniz Poyraz, who was murdered in Izmir, and Jîna Amînî, who was murdered in Iran, were hung in the Newroz area.

Many guests from home and abroad were invited to the Newroz in Amed. Roboskî families, Suruç families, families of those who lost their lives in the genocidal attacks between 2015-2016, Mazlum Doğan’s family, Deniz Poyraz’s family, and relatives of Kurdish politicians and journalists who were murdered while in custody, all attended the celebration.

Mothers carrying out the Justice Vigil demanding freedom for Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan also took their place in the celebration.

Young people carrying DEM Party flags increase the enthusiasm in the area by singing resistance songs.
