Kongreya Star to reform 600 communes in Cezîre Canton


QAMIŞLO – Kongreya Star, the biggest women organization in Rojava, started reformation of 600 women’s communes in Cezîre Canton.

The communes that have committees of societal defense, economy, education, peace and resolution, and health were established for mobilizing women in the autonomous Cezîre Canton of Rojava.

Kongreya Star needed to reform the communes due to problems emerging in the economy and societal affairs.

Kongreya Star member Nehîma Hesen said the main reason to reform the communes is the fact that people have not fully understood the commune system. “They could not participate in the commune activities. They also encounter issues in terms of administration because commune members do not fulfill their responsibilities” added Hesen.
