Kurdish women activists send 883 letters to the CPT from Germany

A group of women sent 883 letters to the CPT, and said that they would work for the freedom of Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan.

Hundreds of letters were sent to the CPT, the Committee for the Prevention of Torture, demanding freedom for Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan, by the Association of Kurdish Women in Germany (YJK-E) in the cities of Giessen, Siegen and Limburg.

The women activists sent 883 signed letters to the CPT and drew attention to the isolation and torture practices applied to Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan. The women said: "There has been an unbelievable isolation imposed on the Kurdish people in the person of our leader for 25 years. No one has heard from him for more than 3 years and disciplinary punishments have been given continuously. As women, wherever we are, we will work to achieve the freedom of our Leader."
