“Öcalan holds the key to the issues in the Middle East”
Raqqa Women’s Administration members called on international human rights organizations to fulfill their responsibilities to ensure freedom for Öcalan.
The Raqqa Women's Administration said: “Öcalan holds the key to the solution of issues in the Middle East.”
The hunger strikes and death fast resistance that started under the lead of HDP MP Leyla Guven demanding an end to the isolation imposed upon Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan were ended on Öcalan’s call after he met with his lawyers, which happened for the first time in 8 years.
Raqqa Women’s Administration Member Zuleyxa Ebdi said the Turkish state imposed an isolation against Öcalan because they are afraid of his call for the brotherhood of peoples and a common life.
Ebdi said Turkey prevents the solution of the Syrian crisis just like they prevent Öcalan’s message from getting out.
Ebdi also said the hunger strike resistance led by Leyla Guven showcased the fighting strength of women and women’s role in building a democratic, ethical and political society against the government’s ideology.
Ebdi said they will abide by Öcalan’s call and raise the struggle and called for unity for the peoples of Syria.
Women’s Administration Member Meryem Ebdo said they were delighted to receive Öcalan’s message and that they wil lwork for the unity of the Syrian peoples. Ebdo said the hunger strike showed them that people can change the course of history.
Ebdo called on international human rights organizations to fulfill their responsibilities for the physical freedom of Öcalan and said: “Öcalan holds the key to the solution of issues in the Middle East. If Öcalan is not free, the existing problems will not end.”
