It should be noted that the Free Life Party of Kurdistan (PJKA) has called on the Iranian authorities for a peaceful solution to the Kurdish issue and has remained adherent to the unilateral ceasefire it declared on 2009. Yet the Iranian Theocratic regards the Kurdish question from security perspective and responds to it militarily.
The Free Life Party of Kurdistan (PJAK) was founded in 2004 as the result of the systematic and continuous oppression of the Kurdish nation by the Iranian government. PJAK upholds the libertarian ideology of Apoism which advocates an ecological-democratic society with gender equality. PJAK’s main goal is to set up a democratic system in Iran and to create a democratic con-federation for the long- oppressed Kurds.
Its initial objective is to limit and change the authority of the Islamic Republic of Iran and to democratise it in four fundamental areas; the nation, the society, the citizenship and to evolve the state into a self-governing institution, which is able to deliver public services, to maintain public security; it would be thus synonymous to public authority.
For the past 6 years PJAK has been the most influential organisation of the Kurdish population in the Eastern Kurdistan and has the strongest popular support in this part of the Kurdistan. Three particular dynamics forces namely the women, students and the youths have been increasingly joining PJAK with the aims of transforming their society. Women constitute more than 48% PJAK’s membership from the basic to the leadership of the organisation.
