Long March in Athens ends with demo in front of Turkish consulate

The 3-day march, organized in Athens to protest the international conspiracy against Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan ended.

A 3-day march was organised in the city of Lavrio, southeast of Athens, to protest the 15 February international conspiracy against Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan.

The Long March, which started on 13 February ended on Sturday, the 21st anniversary of the international conspiracy. The march was promoted by Tevgera Ciwanên Şoreşger (Revolutionary Youth Movement) with the slogan 'Freedom for leader Öcalan, status for Kurdistan". The march ended in front of the European Parliament office in Athens.

Hundreds of people welcomed the activists chanting slogans. Activists left a file in the EU office and continued until the Turkish Consulate. 

Azad Mahir addressed the crowd and recalled that the international conspiracy led to the capture and handing over of Öcalan to Turkey.

Speaking on behalf of Tevgera Ciwanen Şoreşger, Sehat Karayazı said: "Today the conspiracy still continues. Today, a great torture is carried out through isolation policies."
