Little Asmin sends a letter to Abdullah Öcalan

Kurdish girl Asmin, who lives in France, wrote a letter to Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan.

Little Asmin is the child of a Kurdish family living in France and exiled to Central Anatolia in the 17th century. She is 9 and she has been writing a letter to Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan since she was 7 years old.

The letter of Asmin, which begins with the phrase "Serokê mîn, Apoyê mîn" [My president, my Apo] , is as follows:

“Rojbaş, My name is Asmin. I turned 9 and at the age of 7 I sent a letter to you. But every day I look at the box, and there was no letter from you, nothing.

My mother says that you wrote, but no, you couldn't write. I will always wait, Serokê mîn.

I look at the sun when I miss you, my mother says, 'When you miss our Leader, put your hand on your heart and look at the sun.' Then I would see you.

I wish I had a magic wand to get you out of jail.

My mother cries when she look at you, and I cry too.

I say to my mother, when I grow up, I will go to Serokê mîne.

When I go to sleep, I say goodnight to you. You say goodnight to me.

I feel you when I put my hand to my heart.

I miss you so much, I love you so much.

Serokê mîn, Apoyê mîn."
