HPC rallies in Qamishlo in solidarity with KCK campaign

Growing participation all around Kurdistan, Europe and the world in the KCK campaign “Stop Isolation, Fascism and Occupation; Time for Freedom”.

Members of the Civil Defence Forces (Hêzên Parastina Civakî, HPC) staged a march in the northern Syrian city of Qamishlo to support the campaign launched by the Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK) in September under the motto “Stop Isolation, Fascism and Occupation; Time for Freedom”.

Banners condemning the isolation of Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan were displayed by the participants who chanted slogans demanding his freedom. The march through the main streets of the city was followed by a rally in the Anthariyah [Enteriyê] neighborhood.

Speaking here, Democratic Union Party (PYD) Council member Abdülkerim Sarûxan stated that the enthusiasm of the people stemmed from the spirit of resistance. Stressing that the Kurdish people will never make concessions on resistance, he strongly criticised the Turkish state’s threats against North and East Syria.
