Appeal for the Global Öcalan Books Day

“Start reading a book from Öcalan to find methods to solve our common problems and create a future of freedom,” say the organisers.

On 10 October, a new international campaign called "Freedom for Öcalan – A Political Solution to the Kurdish Question" was launched with press conferences in 74 places around the world, from France, to Belgium, from Italy to the Spanish state, from Germany to the UK, from Ireland to the Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Slovenia, Cyprus, Greece and across the ocean in Australia, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador. From South Africa to Kenya, Japan, India, Bangladesh, East Timor, the Philippines. The campaign unites social movements, political parties, municipalities, trade unions, activists, intellectuals and millions of Kurds and people in solidarity with the Kurdish liberation struggle worldwide around a common goal: the participation of Abdullah Öcalan in a dialogue for a just and democratic political solution to the Kurdistan question in Turkey, which has remained unresolved for more than a century.

As part of the international campaign, ‘Global Öcalan Books Day’ will be organised on 10 December.

The website was created in line with the campaign, where the books of the Kurdish leader can be accessed in at least 16 languages, including English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Flemish, Danish, Turkish, Tamil, Catalan, Swedish, Greek, Basque, Korean and Sorani.
