'Internationalist March' on its fourth day

The eighth Internationalist Long March from Basel to Strasbourg demanding freedom for Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan and a political solution to the Kurdish question, continues on its fourth day.

The "Internationalist Long March for the Freedom of Abdullah Öcalan", which has been held traditionally every year since 2017 to defend the physical freedom of Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan, is being organised for the 8th time this year.

Around 200 internationalists from many countries such as Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland, Catalonia, Portugal, Slovenia, Macedonia, Slovakia, Macedonia, Slovakia and the UK are taking part in this year’s march, which kicked off on 11 February in Basel, Switzerland and will conclude with a press conference in Strasbourg on 16 February. On 17 February, the activists will attend the central rally in Cologne.

The internationalists partaking in the march, which continued in Colmar, France, on its fourth day, emphasised that they will struggle until the physical freedom of Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan is achieved.

Internationalists wearing purple and yellow t-shirts with the words "Freedom for Öcalan" in French, German and English continue their march with great enthusiasm, displaying flags with the photographs of the PKK and Abdullah Öcalan.

On the first day, the march concluded with the screening of the documentary Heza and a music concert. On the second day, the march moved on to Saint-Louis, France.

The activists walked 20 kilometres to Sierentz and mailed cards with their messages as part of the "100 thousand postcards to İmralı campaign".

The third day of the march started in front of Mulhouse Central Station. After walking for an average of 15 kilometres, the activists reached the town of Wittelsheim.

On the same day, activists distributed leaflets in French, in which the isolation and genocide policy applied to the Kurdish people in the person of Abdullah Öcalan was explained.

The internationalists underlined with their slogans that they are based on the Democratic Confederal paradigm and that they embrace Abdullah Öcalan as their own leader.

The fourth day of the march, which started in Colmar, France, will continue until Selestad.
