Isolation to be discussed in Swedish Parliament today
The aggravated isolation imposed upon Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Ocalan by the Turkish state and the hunger strikes in prisons and in Europe protesting the isolation will be discussed in today’s session in the Swedish Parliament.
Left Party MP Amineh Kakabaveh submitted a proposal last month demanding the isolation imposed upon Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Ocalan and the hunger strikes protesting the isolation, the imprisoned HDP politicians, academics and intellectuals be discussed in the parliament.
Kakabaveh listed concrete examples of human rights violations in Turkey after the attempted coup on July 15, 2016 and stressed the importance of objecting to Turkey’s aggressive policies against Rojava.
Kakabaveh asked Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom what they were planning to do to end the isolation imposed upon Abdullah Ocalan.
The session on the isolation, human rights violations in Turkey and the hunger strikes will start at 13:00 today.
