TJA and DTK: Conspirators are failing

The international conspiracy of 15 February 1999 led to the capture of Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan from Kenya to Turkey.

Free Women's Movement (Tevgera Jinên Azad, TJA) and Democratic Society Congress (DTK) issued written statements today to mark the anniversary of the international conspiracy against Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan.

TJA said in its statement: "The democratic, ecological, women's libertarian confederal system developed by Mr. Abdullah Öcalan as an alternative to the five thousand year old patriarchal state system and the fascist nation state system of capitalist civilization have opened a new ground for the Kurdish people and the peoples of the Middle East. The Rojava revolution is the concrete example of this."

TJA continued: "The best answer to the conspiracy is the spirit of resistance of the Democratic Modernity-Democratic Nation, and the defense of the Rojava women's revolution with which Mr. Öcalan has gifted the peoples of the region and the world. We invite all democratic forces, especially women, to the joint struggle to break isolation and achieve the freedom of the Kurdish people's leader."

DTK: Conspirators have failed

The DTK said in its written statement: "The international conspiracy has been frustrated by the historical resistance and struggle of our people, guided and inspired by Mr. Öcalan's extraordinary will, resistance, democratic nation perspective and leadership."

Pointing out that the conspirators have failed, the DTK said: "The Kurdistan Freedom Struggle has made the philosophy of liberty and common life ideals visible in the entire Middle East territory and has become the hope of liberation for all Middle Eastern peoples."
