Our homeland, the homeland of the Kirmanj-Zaza people,
is under the control of the Turks. Its language and
identity are being destroyed. Some of the
Kirmanj-Zaza people have come together in order to
prevent this and have founded an organisation called
in our language Koma Serbestiya Ma:
Dimili-Kirmanc-Zazay (or in English, the Our Liberty
Organisation: Dimili-Kirmanj-Zaza). The shorter name
of our organisation is Serbestiye (i.e., Liberty).
The purpose of Koma Serbestiya Ma is to struggle for
our liberty and for the freedom of our homeland and to
work towards a democratic and pluralistic society.
Serbestiye is a democratic and patriotic orga-
nisation. We defend the past struggle of our people
for liberty and democracy. The principles of
decentralisation and local management direct our
activities. One may voluntarily become a member of
our organisation and may voluntarily resign. In our
organisation one may only perform an activity if he or
she agrees to it. To us the best way to work is with
freedom of thought and faith.
