The sit-in organised in Strasbourg as part of the KCK’s initiative launched on 12 September continues on its fifth day with the participation of representatives of Kurdish and Turkish institutions in Europe.

The sit-in launched in Strasbourg on 12 October within the scope of the "Stop Isolation, Fascism, Occupation; Time for Freedom" initiative promoted by the KCK, continues in front of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg for the 5th day.

Representatives of institutions from Kurdistan, Turkey and the Middle East attended the sit-in which is organised where the Freedom for Öcalan Vigil has been taking place since 25 June 2012.

The importance of the freedom of Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan is emphasized in the action attended by the representatives of the European Democratic Kurdish Society Congress (KCDK-E) and its components.

Leaflets, brochures and booklets introducing the struggle and ideas of Kurdish people's leader Öcalan are distributed during the action. Activists also had the opportunity to join seminars on the AKP-MHP regime and the common struggle against fascism in Turkey.

In the action organized within the scope of the initiative "End Isolation, Fascism, Occupation; Time for Freedom", launched by the KCK on 12 September, the severe isolation conditions imposed by the AKP-MHP fascism on Öcalan and the massacre policies in the region are exposed.

Activists, who carried out intensive information activities during the day, also presented a dossier about isolation to the permanent representatives of the Council of Europe member countries in Strasbourg.
