Youth organizations in North-East Syria stage a three-day march
Youth organisations in North-East Syria are staging a three-day march in support of the international campaign for the freedom of Abdullah Öcalan and a political solution to the Kurdish question.
A three-day youth march demanding freedom for Abdullah Öcalan and a political solution to the Kurdish question has begun in Qamishlo on Wednesday. The action is organised by the Revolutionary Youth Movement of North-East Syria and the Young Women's Association.
Hundreds of young people gathered in the stadium in Qamishlo to kick off the march. The organisers announced that with their action, they also wanted to celebrate the founding of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) 45 years ago. The long march is intended as a solidarity action by the youth organisations in the autonomous region to the international campaign "Freedom for Öcalan and a political solution to the Kurdish question" launched on 10 October.
The route of the long march leads from Qamishlo via Tirbespiyê, Çilaxa, Rimêlan and Girkê Legê to Dêrik, where a final rally will take place. There will be a cultural and political programme in the evenings. In Tirbespiyê, the participants will celebrate the PKK's birthday today.
