The European Association of Lawyers for Democracy and World Human Rights (ELDH), the New World Summit and the International Alliance for Defence of Rights and Freedom (AIDL) have declared their support for the ‘Freedom for Abdullah Öcalan: For a just peace in Turkey’ campaign.
The ‘Freedom for Abdullah Öcalan: For a just peace in Turkey’ campaign was launched by the Kurdish Human Rights Action Group (KHRAG) and South Africa’s Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU), the largest of the country’s three main trade union federations, with 21 affiliated trade unions.
ELDH is a progressive, non-profit organization which currently unites lawyers from 21 European countries. The association has member offices in the Basque country, Britain, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Spain, France, Italy, Russia, Serbia, Macedonia and Ukraine. The New World Summit, which has established representation in Rojava, is a political and artistic organisation that is dedicated to building ‘alternative parliaments’ for entities currently excluded from democracy. AIDL, centered in Paris, conducts programmes and events to promote human rights and freedom in North Africa and the Middle East.
