Berceto to grant honorary citizenship to Abdullah Ocalan

Ocalan to receive honorary citizienship of the city of Berceto, in Italy.

Tomorrow with a special ceremony the city of Berceto (in the province of Parma, Italy) will grant the honorary citizenship to Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Ocalan.

"Berceto - writes the mayor, Luigi Lucchi, - wishes in this way to give a small contribution to the freedom of oppressed and not recognised peoples".

At the ceremony a delegation of the Kurdish people will be present, including Ocalan's niece and Rete Kurdistan Parma which has worked to raise awareness on the Kurdish people.

Berceto is the last of a dozen cities in Italy to grant the honorary citizienship to Ocalan.
