Kurds living in Europe continue to protest the isolation of Kurdistan Workers’ Party leader Abdullah Öcalan, who has been kept in solitary confinement in Imrali island since 1999.
Within the scope of the “End isolation: It is time for freedom” campaign, Kurds living in Düsseldorf, Germany, sent hundreds of letters to the United Nations (UN) demanding an end to Öcalan’s isolation. The number of letters sent from in and around Düsseldorf exceeded 4,000.
The campaign also continues in Denmark. Kurds living in Copenhagen recently sent another thousand new letters to the UN. The number of letters sent in the Denmark campaign has now exceeded 5,000.
The South African Kurdish Studies Group and the South African Trade Union Confederation (COSATU) launched the letter campaign, in which letters and emails are sent to the UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres
