Kurdish patriots from Darmstadt take over Freedom for Öcalan Vigil in Strasbourg in its 545th week
Patriots from Darmstadt took over the Freedom for Öcalan Vigil in Strasbourg in its 545th week.
The Freedom for Abdullah Öcalan Vigil was launched on 25 June 2012 in Strasbourg, demanding freedom for the Kurdish people's leader and the end of isolation.
On the 545th week, the vigil was taken over by Kurdish patriots from Darmstadt.
The group includes Kamuran Kılınç, Selim Oltan and Feyzi Özçelik.
The spokesperson of the group, Kamuran Kılınç, said: “Greetings and respect to all the people of Kurdistan. Today the Darmstadt group is in Strasbourg to take over the vigil. As it is known, the vigil has been going on here for years. The time period we are going through is a very historical time. As the leadership said, it was never as critical as this process. Every patriotic Kurd must fulfill his duty as an honourable Kurd and protect the Leadership. Every patriot should stand up for his values and his party. All Kurdish people know that our party is waging a unique struggle all over the world today."
Kılınç continued: "Our guerrillas have turned the mountains of Zap, Metina, Heftanin and Kurdistan into graves for the enemy. However, we, the Kurds in the diaspora, must support the guerrillas, we must support our party and our Leader. The leadership says that if you are going to be a comrade, you must fulfill your comradeship. It's not just about saying ‘I am a comrade'. The most important thing is to be a comrade to one's own Leader. From here, once again, we send our greetings to our Leader. On this occasion, we celebrate the 44th anniversary of our party. Biji Serok Apo! Biji guerrilla! Biji PKK! Biji Kurdistan!”
