Campaigners of the international initiative ‘Freedom for Öcalan, A Political Solution for Kurdistan’ have unveiled their next action – a massive postcard campaign to send one hundred thousand messages to the leader of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), Abdullah Öcalan, who is being held in Turkey’s İmralı Island Prison.
The campaign, which aims to raise awareness of Öcalan’s two-and-a-half-year incommunicado detention and to promote a political solution to the Kurdish question, will gain momentum with this new initiative. Supporters around the world are being asked to send postcards with greetings and messages of solidarity, highlighting Öcalan’s ideas.
The symbolic gesture is intended to break the isolation surrounding Öcalan and serve as a powerful demand for an end to his incommunicado detention and a fervent call for his freedom. The campaign’s organisers believe that the global outpouring of support through these postcards will draw attention to the cause.
The cards, which come from different parts of the world, are expected to carry a powerful message of unity and solidarity.
The campaigners have expressed their hope that this action will resonate not only with Öcalan but also with the international community, urging governments and organisations to prioritise political dialogue and a solution to the long-standing Kurdish question.
The ‘Freedom for Öcalan, A Political Solution for Kurdistan’ campaign continues to attract support and attention as it strives to shed light on human rights issues and promote peace in the region.
