House of Lords hosts Annual Abdullah Öcalan Conference

The 2nd Annual Abdullah Öcalan Conference will take place at the House of Lords in London today.

The Trade Unions, Freedom for Öcalan campaign and the Kurdish People's Democratic Assembly of Britain present the 2nd Annual Abdullah Ocalan Conference, which will take place on 15 February 2023, marking 24 years since Abdullah Ocalan was abducted and has since been kept in solitary confinement on the Imrali prison island, in Turkey.

The Freedom for Öcalan campaign is a UK trade union-backed initiative to secure the release of imprisoned Kurdish political prisoner Abdullah Öcalan.

The Kurdish People's Democratic Assembly of Britain is a grassroots organisation committed to raising awareness and public interest in events across Kurdistan. Alongside representing the 400,000 Kurds living in the United Kingdom, we make contributions to stopping the war against the Kurdish people and paving the way for a peaceful solution in Kurdistan and the wider Middle East.

This year's conference brings together speakers from both Europe and the UK, including Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP, Lord Maurice Glasman, HDP MP Hisyar Ozsoy, Osman Baydemir and Jeremy Corbyn MP.
