KCDK-E took over Freedom for Öcalan Vigil

The Freedom for Öcalan Vigil is the longest civil society action in Europe.

The Freedom for Öcalan Vigil was launched by Kurdish activists in front of the Council of Europe on 25 June 2012 to demand freedom for Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan.

In a written statement last week the KCDK-E co-presidency Council said that they would take over the Freedom for Öcalan Vigil and called on all Kurds to join in the longest action organised by Kurdish people in Europe on 25 June, to celebrate the 7th anniversary of the Vigil. 

The KCDK-E also added that on 29 June a mass event will be organised to pass over the Vigil to another group. 

In addition four days of events are planned by KCDK-F to mark the 7th anniversary of the Freedom for Öcalan Vigil in Strasbourg.

The Democratic Kurdish Council in France is organizing a four-day festival, with conferences, film screening, painting workshop, photo exhibition, music and dance. The festival will begin on Wednesday 26 June at Place Kléber in Strasbourg and will continue until Sunday 29.
