Scared by women’s revolution in Iran the State allows misogynist terrorists to make war on rebel schoolgirls with dozens more poison gas attacks on their schools.

The Rojava Revolution has spread to Iran, clashing with state sponsored repression of women expressed in waves of poison gas attacks on revolutionary girls by cowardly men fearful of losing their 1000 year old privileges
The Rojava example still survives among multiple enemies, with a strong anti capitalist co-op movement and joint women’s leadership. There are Arab, Azadi and Syriac women’s militias within the broad SDF defense coalition and Kurdish women guerillas fight in Turkey, Iraq and Iran.
But it is the inspiring Jineoloji women’s ideology that has spread like wildfire to neighbouring countries and also to groups around the world. The YPJ (Women’s Protection Units) were organised, to the horror of Patriarchal Regimes, and began to free themselves, their families, communities, and homeland from ISIS and medieval style abuse. see slso: Organizing Transformed Spaces: Kurdish Women, Jineoloji and Rojava
As with other Kurdish movements, the recent uprising known as ‘Jina’s Revolution’ (after ) inside Iran, with the Kurdish slogan of Jin, Jîyan, Azadî (Women, Life, Freedom), has been making headlines for months and has strong roots in the Kurdish people’s long history of freedom struggles.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has a reputation for being one of the most misogynistic and anti-woman in the world, depriving women of their most fundamental human rights both by the state and within society.
Iran was freed from a the murderous British and US sponsored dictatorship by a fundamentalist Iranian Revolution in 1979. Ever since it has been constantly attacked, subverted, blockaded and severely sanctioned by the US and allies which covet its oil resources.
In reply Iran has been unfortunately controlled by a militarized autocratic regime using religion and heavy repression to defend itself and control its 17 unique ethnic minority cultures.
This regime has been specifically targeting the Kurdish majority area of Rojhilat ( Eastern Kurdistan NW Iran) because of their long-standing opposition to the central Iranian state.
The successful ideas of the Rojava Revolution in N Syria have spread to the Rojhilat resistance, especially to women, and it was here that the death in custody of a Kurdish women, Jina Amini for not wearing religious clothing sparked a women-led protest movement that has swept the whole country.

Hengaw: Monday, April 17, 2023
“One of the students of Tarawat School, whose name is withheld by Hengaw, said in this regard: ‘One hour before the chemical attack, 12 passengers in three cars entered the schoolyard and locked the exit door. Two of these forces went to the janitor’s room and then collected all the CCTV cameras, and took them with them at the end’. She added: ‘All these people were wearing masks and after they left, symptoms of poisoning and nausea appeared in the students’.
Reports of at least 20 more chemical attacks on schools have now emerged in various cities in Iran, mostly but not all in Kurdish majority areas..
On Sunday, April 9, at least 47 students were taken to hospital after being poisoned at six girls’ schools in Saqqez and other cities of Rojhelat Kurdistan. 20 students are reportedly in critical condition.
Just in Bukan City schools were targeted five times in the past day. Other cities, including Gilan-e Gharb, Karaj, Tabriz, Kermashan, Dezful, Isfahan, Saqqez, Urmia, Sanandaj, Ravansar, and Khorramabad, have also witnessed these attacks.
The coordinated attacks are organized by state instigated extreme misogynists, often using military grade gas grenades.
According to a report by the Hengaw, Organization for Human Rights, on Monday, April 17, 2023, the Fajr, Esmaat, Setayesh, Shahed, and Honarestan-e Sharaf girls’ schools in Bukan were the targets of chemical attacks.

The revolutionary student organizations of Bushehr and Tehran issued a joint statement today.“This planned attack, is a retaliation against the struggles of revolutionary students. Progressive students should try to revive the atmosphere of protest at schools by holding more protests and taking to the streets.
