Öcalan: Kurdish issue is now an international issue
HDP MP Dilek Öcalan stated that the colonialist mindset doesn’t pertain to anything in Kurdistan and said: “Fear won’t delay death. The Kurdish issue is now an international issue.”
HDP Urfa MP Dilek Öcalan stated that the isolation is imposed upon the Kurdish people and oppressed peoples in the person of Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan and stressed that his freedom should also be understood as such.
Since Abdullah Öcalan’s brother Mehmet Öcalan met with him on September 11, 2016, the Kurdish People’s Leader has had no contact with his family or his lawyers. Öcalan’s niece and Peoples’ Democratic Party (Halkların Demokratik Partisi - HDP) Urfa MP Dilek Öcalan stated that the isolation imposed upon Öcalan for 18 years has been imposed upon the Kurdish people and the oppressed peoples of the Middle East in his persona.
THE WAR LAUNCHED IN IMRALI SPREADS
Öcalan stated that the years-long isolation policy shows that the AKP government is on the side of non-solution to the Kurdish issue. Öcalan continued: “The government is set on neutralizing the Kurdish People’s Leader in the Imrali Type F High-Security Prison and destroying the Kurdish people. The AKP government declared war on the resistance/struggle in Imrali, didn’t stop there and went on to burn and destroy houses, bomb cities and massacring civilians, spreading the war throughout the country.”
NOT LIMITED TO KURDS ANYMORE
Dilek Öcalan stressed that the colonialist and barbaric mindset does not pertain to anything in Kurdistan and said: “They should know that fear does not delay death. Sooner or later, this solution will come through Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan. The Kurdish issue is not limited to Kurds anymore, it has gained an international character. A campaign has been launched by the TJA for the freedom of Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan with the motto, ‘Isolation will lose, freedom will prevail’. The sound of freedom for Öcalan slogans in Turkey and Europe grows louder every day. We will be out on the streets until Mr. Öcalan is free.”
