German human rights activists visit the vigil for Öcalan

A group of German human rights activists have visited the Freedom for Öcalan vigil in Strasbourg and obtained information about the latest developments in Kurdistan.

All circles show great interest in the Freedom Vigil for Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan ongoing in the French city of Strasbourg since 2012.

A group of German human rights activists that held talks at the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights on Tuesday also visited the Vigil for the freedom of Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan that is taking place in front of the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights, the Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT) and the European Parliament.

The German group was informed by HDP’s (Peoples’ Democratic Party) Council of Europe and European Parliament representative Faik Yağızay about the aggravated isolation imposed by the Turkish regime on Öcalan who has not been allowed to see anyone for two years now, and about whose current condition no news can be received.

HDP representative Yağızay highlighted the fascist policies implemented against the HDP, DBP (Democratic Regions’ Party), the opposition, human rights activists and intellectuals in Turkey.

During the visit which lasted half an hour, Zülfü Bingöl from the organizing committee of the vigil shared information on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s fascist policies and the developments taking place in four parts of Kurdistan.
