Seher Aydar

Seher Aydar is a Kurdish-Norwegian politician for the Rødt (Red) socialist party in Oslo. The party was founded in 2007 with the aim to build a strong public sector, nationalize large businesses and create new legislatures for stronger recognition of the working class, to be achieved through what the party describes as a ‘democratic revolution.’ The party further promotes the principles of green-socialism, arguing that ‘we are rapidly approaching the breaking point of the world’s ecosystems’ as a consequence of which ‘goods produced need to be justly redistributed, and production must be redirected to products and services that do not overwhelm the earth’s capacity.’ Red is represented on both local and national levels in Norway. Seher Aydar is second on the 2016 election list of Red in the city of Oslo and was the chair of the party’s youth movement between 2012 and 2014. She is active as the chair of the Norwegian organization Solidarity with Kurdistan and previously worked for the anti-racist organization Agenda X.
