Kurdistan photo exhibition

In July 2022, MerJa Media sent a small team to Başûrê, Kurdish Iraq to stay and work alongside the Kurdish revolutionary fighters. Together with our new Kurdish friends, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Rojavan Revolution, met with Yezidi survivors of the Mount Sinjar siege, and gained a rare insight to the continuing struggle faced by everyday Kurdish people in resisting genocide. Some photos and sections of video from the documentary we are currently editing will be shown at the Stirrup Gallery, Addison Road Centre, Marrickville from Friday the 24th of February until Sunday the 26th of February. Please join us at the opening night from 7pm on the 24th February to celebrate the continued resistance of the Kurdish people. There’ll be some drinks provided so I hope to see you there !
All profits from this event will be donated to Kurdish Red Crescent for the victims of the two recent earthquakes in Rojava.
Bijî Kurdistan!
