Shahoz Hesen: Syrian regime must abandon the language of threats
PYD Co-chair Shahoz Hesen pointed out that the Syrian regime still threatens the peoples in a hegemonic system thinking: “These threats won’t alleviate the pain of the Syrian peoples. The dialogue for political and democratic solution must continue."
The Democratic Union Party (PYD) held a meeting with martyrs’ families in the Girkê Legê district to assess the political developments in the region. The meeting started with a minute’s silence and afterwards PYD Co-chair Shahoz Hesen spoke about the political process. Hesen said the democratic project developed by Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan is the key to the solution of the crisis in the Middle East and continued:
“Ocalan has fought hard for the peoples to live a democratic, free and just life together. The democratic project that came to life in Rojava and Northern Syria in line with Öcalan’s ideas started to frighten the hegemons, especially Turkey. That is why they have implemented an aggravated isolation against Öcalan in an attempt to sever his ties with peoples. So we must develop the democratic project to be able to void this isolation and these plots.”
Hesen said the Syrian regime insists on not accepting diverse peoples and colors in a hegemonic system thinking: “The Syrian regime still threatens the peoples. These threats won’t alleviate the pain of the Syrian peoples. The dialogue for political and democratic solution must continue. If the Syrian regime is serious about these dialogues, they must abandon the language of threats.”
Hesen said the Turkish state is trying very hard to deepen the Syrian crisis: “They are planning to pit the Kurdish and Arab peoples against each other to have the war continue in the region. That is why they have all their gangs attacking us. Kurdish gains are considered to be a great threat against their fascism, so they are targeted by the Turkish state directly.”
The meeting continued with questions from the audience.
