Founder and prolonged leader of Kurdistan Workers' Part PKK, Abdullah Öcalan, has been imprisoned already for 20 years without any justification. Communist Youth of Finland joins to the international appeal, founded for releasing Öcalan, and calls for right to peace and sovereignty of peoples in the Middle East.
Democratic society center of Kurds NCDK collect names to international appeal in Finland. It's signed by chairperson of Communist Youth of Finland Jiri Mäntysalo and vice-chairperson Toni Kallioinen, and also by other actives of organization.
"In 2015, after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan ended several years of
talks between the Turkish state, Abdullah Öcalan, and the PKK, he launched a
new stage of aggressive and violent escalation in Turkey, Iraq, and Syria. In
recent months Erdoğan waged war not only against the Kurds but all the
neighbours of Turkey including Libya, Cyprus, the border with Greece and
Nagorno-Karabakh/Artsakh," is told in appeal's text.
"Meanwhile, the people of North and East Syria, inspired by Öcalan and his
prison writings, have transformed their land into a major bastion of peaceful
coexistence and democracy despite Turkey’s constant and ongoing military
attacks", appeal tells.
Co-operation's and dialogue's way has to be supported in the Middle East to solve the problems.
Turkey's Erdoğan's administration, dangerous for peace, justice and democracy, must be held accountable for its imperialistic and hateful action. Co-operation's and dialogue's way has to be supported in the Middle East to solve the problems. Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan must be released from prison.
