Global support for the freedom campaign for the Kurdish Leader Abdullah Öcalan is spreading in Britain, South Africa and Egypt.
A campaign was launched by a group of academics and intellectuals in Egypt on 1 November 2020 to demand freedom for the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) leader Abdullah Öcalan and peace in the Middle East.
Îlhamî El-Milêcî, a writer and journalist on the “Freedom for Öcalan” campaign committee in Egypt, said that the campaign has grown gradually, attracting a large number of people in Egypt and the Arab community.
”Leader Öcalan’s freedom will contribute to the brotherhood of the peoples and to peace in the Middle East,” said El-Milêci.
The campaign grows with the support from more Arab countries while thousands of intellectuals, academicians, writers and politicians have signed the campaign, he informed.
El-Milecî stated that Turkey wants to expand its power over the region. “It applies the Ottoman policies to achieve its goal by supporting ISIS and Al Qaida jihadist groups,” he said.
He also announced that they will present the results of the campaign on February 15 to the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner and the secretariats of the European Union, the African Union and the Arab Union.
