Newroz 2017 Bay Area Celebration

Newroz, celebrated by many of the peoples in Mesopotamia as the new year, falls on the spring equinox and is significant for the Kurdish people as a day of uprising. On this day, bonfires are lit throughout Kurdistan as people celebrate the coming season of resistance. Let’s join with the California Kurdish community in lighting the Newroz fires of resistance.

Bring banners, flags and firewood! We will all meet at Ocean Beach in San Francisco.

We will be commemorating Robin Agiri (Michael Israel) who was killed by Turkish jets while fighting with the YPG in September.
