Kurdish activists in Paris finished their two-day protest while a mobile library with Abdullah Öcalan’s books started the journey from Lausanne. Both events were launched to support the international campaign for freedom for the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) leader Abdullah Öcalan.
The international campaign called ‘End the isolation, fascism, occupation: Time to ensure freedom’ that was launched by the Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK) on 12 September 2020 continues with variıus protests and events held across Europe.
Kurdish activists in Paris finished their two-day protest launched to support the international campaign for freedom for the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) leader Abdullah Öcalan.
On the 9 February the Kurdish youth organisations in Paris launched a long march of “End the isolation, occupation, fascism- Bi Hev Re Serhildan (Rebellion Together)” in Paris that continued for two days.
Supporters for freedom for Abdullah Öcalan ended their protest with a press statement in front of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris after they marched through Sasbourg Saint-Denis.
A ‘library on wheels’ with an extensive collection of the works of Abdullah Öcalan began its journey from Lausanne in Switzerland.
Ilias Penchard, the head of the Green Party group in the Municipality of Lausanne, visited the activists of the campaign in Lausanne and shared his support messages. “It is important that the international communities take action regarding this political prisoner. Many elected MPS and mayors are also jailed, even though the rest of the world may not be aware of this fact,” said Penchard.
“The elected representatives of the people all around the world should take action to give voice to the demand for justice of the Kurdish People and to raise the struggle for the freedom of the political prisoners,” he said.
The moving library with Abdullah Öcalan’s books in French, German and English, will be made available to international readers and members of the public in the four cities of Switzerland during its journey.
