Newroz and the hopes of the Kur­dish people

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Has­san Shin­gali

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.
