Commenting afterwards, Shahrar Ali said: “This is a momentous day for Kurds across the world and indeed other communities for whom Newroz signifies the start of the new year. On this day, light is equally distributed across the southern as for the northern hemisphere – the Spring equinox. On this day, we are especially alive to the balance to be struck between human activity and our respect for nature. Greens understand this need for restoring harmony, in life, through politics and pursuit of peace.”
