Protest in Lausanne demanding freedom for Abdullah Öcalan continues on its 11th month

The protest which has been held in Lausanne since 24 November 2021 demanding the physical freedom of Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan continues.

A stand is opened every Wednesday by the Lausanne Democratic Kurdish Community Center (CDK), members of the Lajin Women's Council, Tevgera Ciwanên Şoreşger and Teko-JIN, to collect signatures within the framework of the campaign launched to remove the PKK from the European Union terrorist organisations list.

The books written by the Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan while in prison were distributed to people visiting the stand where signatures are also collected.

Days before the 9 October anniversary, the day the international conspiracy against Öcalan begun, Kurdish institutions in Switzerland are preparing actions and demonstrations to demand Öcalan's release.

Activists called on everyone to attend the demonstration that will take place on Saturday in Bern.
