Newroz and the hopes of the Kurdish people
Kawa>s torch was more than a signal to liberate a nation from tyranny; it was a sun in the sky, lighting the way toward liberation and emancipation for the Kurdish people, away from the oppression of tyrant of different times and places. Kawa>s torch still radiates light and hope, and hundreds of Kurds have sacrificed their lives before its glow for the sake of the Kurdish dream of self-determination.
Those people who have suffered for the Kurdish dream are celebrating Newroz today with hope in their hearts; hopes of self-determination and of an independent Kurdish state.
The Newroz festival is being celebrated all over Kurdistan and in every place Kurds live. Newroz decrees have been revived in every Kurdish province and district, and the Kurds are delighted to celebrate it. The Newroz decrees differ from place to place, but the festival is celebrated in a national spirit.
From Shingal to Sulaimaniya, Newroz has sown the seeds of hopes and kindness among Kurds. There were cars and people everywhere, and a Kurdish flag fluttering above every Kurdish institution. Every Kurdish family was outdoors to celebrate Newroz and enjoy nature, and Newroz songs were heard everywhere you went. Over Newroz, the Kurds wear Kurdish outfits, and people usually make different kinds of food and head outdoors to relax, to inhale nature and to enjoy themselves. People have expressed their feelings for the coming of Newroz and are hopeful that Kurdistan will soon become a state.
