Actions in Europe demand Freedom for Abdullah Öcalan democratic solution to the Kurdish question

Events were held in Basel, Fribourg and Copenhagen within the scope of the "Freedom for Abdullah Öcalan, democratic solution to the Kurdish question" campaign.

Activities continue in Europe for the "Freedom for Abdullah Öcalan, solution to the Kurdish question" initiative, which was launched on 10 October 2023, by the friends of the Kurdish people.


In Copenhagen, home visits were made and postcards were distributed within the scope of the "100 Thousand Cards to Imrali". The cards on which the Kurds wrote their messages were collected and sent to Abdullah Öcalan in Imrali.


A meeting was held with BastA Party officials in Basel. The "Leadership Committee" delegation met with BastA Party co-chair Nicola Goepfert and presented the file they prepared regarding the isolation of the Kurdish people’s leader.

At the meeting, it was decided to take joint action for the freedom of Öcalan and all political prisoners.


One of the cities where work was carried out for the "100 Thousand Cards to Imrali" campaign was Fribourg.

Members of Kurdish Youth Organizations TCŞ and TekoJIN supported the action held in front of the city post office. The action was organized by the leadership of the Democratic Kurdish Community Center (CDK-FR).

Before sending the cards, CDK-FR co-chair Orhan Hazar made a speech, underlining that 25 years have passed since the 15 February International Conspiracy. Hazar said: "We will ensure Leader Apo's freedom and the status of Kurdistan. On Saturday, 17 February, hundreds of thousands will shout in the city of Cologne that they want freedom for the Kurdish people’s leader. "

Hazar added: "We invite all our patriotic people and friends to be in Cologne."
