KCK: The resistance should grow in Zulkuf Gezen’s sacrifice
The KCK issued a statement and called on the people to “uphold the memory of the first prison martyr in the Break the Isolation lunge, to rush to Newroz grounds, to grow the resistance and to bid him farewell in the most glorious way”.
Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK) Executive Council Co-Presidency issued a written statement for Zulkuf Gezen, who carried out a sacrifice action in the Tekirdag prison against the isolation imposed upon Kurdish Peoples’ Leader Abdullah Ocalan. The statement says:
“Esteemed son of the Kurdish people, great revolutionary comrade Zulkuf Gezen carried out a sacrifice action in the Tekirdag dungeon and achieved martyrdom. With this action, comrade Zulkuf Gezen joined the symbolic names of July 14 and Newroz resistance lines. We remember our comrade Zulkuf Gezen with respect and promise to fulfill his longing of a free Leader, free Kurdistan and democratic Turkey.
We call on our people to uphold the memory of the first prison martyr in the Break the Isolation, Tear Down Fascism, Free Kurdistan lunge, to rush to Newroz grounds, to grow the resistance and to bid him farewell to immortality in the most glorious way.
The Break the Isolation, Tear Down Fascism and Free Kurdistan resistance lunge led by Leyla Guven and Nasir Yagiz and grown with participation from thousands of prisoners and hundreds of our people in the country and abroad to influence the world public opinion has entered a new phase with the grand sacrifice action by our comrade Zulkuf Gezen. Our people should take to the streets against the AKP-MHP fascist genocidal government in the line of comrade Zulkuf Gezen and carry his resistance to victory.
The AKP-MHP fascist government is attempting to carry the genocidal policies against Kurds in the last century to success with the absolute isolation and torture system they set up in Imrali. By the PKK’s more than 40 years of glorious struggle, the 96 year old fascist Turkish nation state system has failed.
The genocidal AKP-MHP fascist government attempts to keep the Kurdish people under an absolute isolation and genocide system in the person of Leader Apo to rebuild the genocidal system. Under the lead of great revolutionaries like Zulkuf Gezen, the resistance rising with the spirit of July 14 and Newroz will break the isolation, take down the AKP-MHP fascist regime and liberate the peoples.
On this basis we are calling on our people, Turkish society, women, youth and leftist-socialist-democratic forces to uphold Zulkuf Gezen’s struggle and to carry the resistance to victory for a democratic and free humanity and Turkey.”
