Thousands march for Öcalan in Strasbourg

Thousands of people protest against the international conspiracy on its 21st anniversary.

Kurds and their friends from all around Europe have gathered in the Strasbourg city of France today to protest against the international conspiracy that led to the capture and handover of Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan from Kenya to Turkey on 15 February 1999.

The people have started to march to the area where a massive rally will be held in the afternoon. A huge banner unfurled by the demonstrators read “Freedom for Öcalan, Political Status for Kurdistan”. Chanting slogans commending Öcalan, people are displaying the images of the Kurdish leader.

Feminist, antifascist and anti-capitalist groups from Europe are also joining the demonstration.
