The following Declaration was drafted pursuant to a symposium organized in Panlýurfa by the Human Rights Association of Panlýurfa. The symposium took place on November 22nd and 23rd 2003. We, the co-authors of this Declaration, are deeply concerned about the recent developments at the United Nations regarding the language adopted within various documents regarding women’s rights. The efforts in questioning and undermining already accepted language of the Beijing Conference and Beijing Platform for Action calls for an immediate action by women’s (human) rights defenders.
Semsiye, lapidée par ses proches; Sevide, tuée de deux balles par la famille de son mari; Elif, pendue par sa propre mère: dans le Sud-Est anatolien, les femmes paient encore un lourd tribut à l'honneur.
