Three-day march for Öcalan in Marseille
Kurds and their friends are staging long marches on the 21st anniversary of the 15 February international conspiracy that led to the imprisonment of Abdullah Öcalan.
On the occasion of the anniversary of the abduction of Abdullah Öcalan from Kenya to Turkey on 15 February 1999, which was in violation of international law, several long marches have been held in Europe in the run-up to an annual massive demonstration in Strasbourg in order to raise European public awareness of the Kurdish question and to draw attention to the demand for freedom for Abdullah Öcalan.
In this scope, a three-day march has also been started in the French city of Marseille on Thursday with the participation of Kurds from Bordeaux, Montpellier, Toulouse, Draguignan and Lyon.
150 people are participating in the march which started following a press statement in Kurdish and French in front of the Martigues Municipality.
The activists will march to Marignane today, to St. Antione on the second day and to Vieux Port Square on the third day.
