KCK statement on Imralı meeting
KCK said January 12 meeting with Öcalan was an attempt made as part of the special psychological war developed by the AKP-MHP government to sabotage the “Let’s break isolation and tear down fascism” campaign.
KCK (Kurdistan Communities Union) Executive Council Co-presidency released a written statement on the meeting held with Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan on Saturday.
The statement said the following:
“The “Let’s break isolation and tear down fascism” campaign launched by the Kurdistan Freedom Movement continues spreading to all areas. While hundreds of prisoners are engaged in a hunger strike action with great resolve, the hunger strikes started by our people in four parts of Kurdistan and abroad, as well as demonstrations, protests and other actions are expanding our freedom resistance.
In such an environment, the fascist AKP-MHP government which has executed a heavy repression and isolation for years, had Mehmet Öcalan go to Imralı and have a meeting with Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan on January 12, Saturday, as was reported by the media. First of all, it is clear that what enabled this meeting with Öcalan is the resistance campaign developed by our people. In this sense, the “Let’s break isolation and tear down fascism” campaign that developed under the leadership of Leyla Güven, has achieved its first serious success. On this basis, we congratulate our resisting people and friends, and wish them further successes.
However, the meeting held in Imralı on January 12 does not mean the ending of the isolation. Thus, the aggravated fascist repression and isolation imposed upon Leader Abdullah Öcalan in Imralı is continuing. For this reason, the “Let’s break isolation and tear down fascism” campaign we started as the Kurdish People and Freedom Movement, also continues. The resisting comrades, our people and friends should not interpret it wrongly. The January 12 meeting was an attempt made as part of the special psychological war developed by the AKP-MHP government to sabotage the “Let’s break isolation and tear down fascism” campaign. The fact that the meeting was held on Saturday, a holiday day, makes this truth apparent.
It is obvious that in order to break and frustrate our resistance, the colonialist-genocidal AKP-MHP government resorts to such a special war trick due to the problems it experienced in the face of our developing initiative of freedom and resistance. However, we know very well the atrocities and tricks of the fascist war. For this reason, we will not be deceived by the special war tricks and we will enhance our actions of resistance until the walls of Imralı are torn down, the isolation ends and Leader Abdullah Öcalan attains conditions of living and working freely. All our people, friends and the public opinion should know this truth this way. Our resistance initiative will break the isolation, tear down fascism and on this basis achieve a free Kurdistan and democratic Turkey.”
