'Freedom for Öcalan' vigil in front of the UN continues
The vigil in front of the United Nations for the freedom of Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan continues with vigour.
A sit-in protest against the isolation of Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan continues in front of the United Nations (UN) building in Geneva, Switzerland.
Kurdish activists have been protesting every Wednesday since January 15, gathering around the tent of resistance they have set up in front of the UN.
During today’s demonstration, a moment of silence was held in commemoration of those who died on September 15, the anniversary of the day ISIS mercenaries commenced their slaughter operations against Kobanê.
'WE WILL REMAIN ON THE STREETS’
Salih Salam, Co-Chair of the Geneva Democratic Kurdish Society (CDK), stated that they will continue to fight for the freedom of Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan.
Sağlam made the following remarks: "Based on our Leader's paradigm and guerrilla resistance, we will continue to be in the streets against the attacks on Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan with isolation torture, crimes against humanity that target Kurdistan and the Kurdish people with chemical and poisonous gases."
Speaking after, Kurdish politician Nejdet Atalay said: "Since 25 January, by embracing the Stop isolation, occupation, fascism: Time for freedom' campaign, the people of Kurdistan have been expressing their reaction against the silence of international institutions, especially the UN, in the face of ispşation. We will remain in the field with the same zeal until the annihilation and massacre attacks on the Kurdish people and Kurdistan stop."
Following Atalay's speech, the activists continued the protest with the slogans of the "Dem Dema Azadiyê ye" [Time for freedom] campaign.
