Iranian and Afghan women release message of solidarity with the Kurds
The Women's Transnational Democratic Platform condemned the Turkish invasion attacks and demanded the freedom of Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan, also calling for the removal of the PKK from the list of "terrorist organizations".
The Women's Transnational Democratic Platform, mainly consisting of Afghan and Iranian women, denounced the Turkish invasion attacks in Kurdistan and the crackdown on the Kurds in a written statement with video footage.
The platform condemned the use of chemical weapons against the guerrilla forces in South Kurdistan (North Iraq) and demanded the release of Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan who has been held in aggravated isolation since his capture as a result of an international conspiracy in Kenya and his forced departure to Turkey.
The platform urged the international community to remove the PKK from the list of "terrorist organizations".
“We demand the freedom of Abdullah Öcalan and the removal of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) from the list of terrorist organizations. The only way to reach reconciliation and freedom is peace and the establishment of a democratic and peaceful common life,” the statement said.
Apart from the statement, women from different nationalities demanded the removal of the PKK from the list of "terrorist organizations" and the freedom of Öcalan in video messages.
