Individuals protesting Kiev’s June 6th LGBTQ/I Pride “March for Equality” attacked some of the 2,000 Police officers that were deployed to protect the event on Saturday. Despite the violence, holding the march with police support was a positive step for the country which remains one of the most dangerous places for LGBTQ/I individuals in Europe. Last years’ march was cancelled because of the police’s refusal to protect the marchers.

The hotel in Mahabad where the incident occurred was set on fire and burned down. Police subsequently used heavy force and teargas to disperse the protesters.

Scenes of Kurdish Women who Have Taken Up Arms Against ISIS; Kurdish Iraq and Syria, 2014-2015

Taken on 2015-04-01 *

Featured in this photo report are scenes of women who have taken up arms against ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The majority of these female fighters come from the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), a militant organization with Marxist-Leninst roots based in Turkey and Iraq that seeks greater political rights and cultural autonomy for Kurds; and the Syria based Women's Protection Unit (YPJ), which is strongly associated with the PKK. The PKK is listed as a terrorist organisation by several states and organisations including Turkey, the USA and NATO. Despite being listed as a terrorist organisation several sources have stated that informal cooperation between the USA and PKK exist in the context of the ongoing battle against ISIS. It is said among the Kurds that their female fighters inspire great fear in the ISIS militants, who believe that if they are killed by a woman they will not go to heaven.
