Şengal Resistance Units and Şengal Women Units issued a written statement congratulating May 1st, the International Labor Day.
The statement included:
"First, we commemorate all of our martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the sake of our society in the person of the martyrs Jan Feda Zeylan, Serhildan Jakdar, Delgesh Kherzan, Yilmaz Kafr, Berdogan Agid and all the martyrs of May with respect. We congratulate the International Labor Day firstly on the leader Abdullah Ocalan and all the workers of the world who have resisted throughout history to this day against the fascism of capitalism and continue to resist. We salute their struggle with great respect.
On this day, our unity is a historic duty, and our people; women, youth and everyone should receive this day with great joy and enthusiasm. To achieve a democratic nation, free life and equality, we need unity in these historic days. We must convert all the squares in which we are located into squares of resistance.
In these historic and holy days, we in Şengal Resistance Units, Şengal Women Units and the Yazidi community will unite and escalate our struggle and resistance in order to achieve freedom."
