With the slogan “Free Community” a group of young Kurdish women took to the streets pedalling bicycles to protest against the laws that define women on the saddle of a bicycle as indecent. It happened in Amuda, a town in the Governorate of al-Hasaka in north-eastern Syria, where the majority of the population is Kurdish. The girls, who have taken the name of Newroz, (“New Day”), declared that they want to feel free to ride bikes without running the risk of being punished for doing so.
