Saarbrücken DKTM members take over Freedom for Abdullah Öcalan Vigil

Saarbrücken DKTM members took over the Freedom for Abdullah Öcalan Vigil on its 546th week.

The Freedom for Abdullah Öcalan Initiative was launched in Strasbourg on 25 June 2012 to ensure the physical freedom of Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan and to break the isolation imposed on him, has entered its 546th week.

The vigil, known as the longest-running action carried out by the Kurds in Europe, was taken over this week by a group of activists coming from Saarbrücken on behalf of the Democratic Kurdish Community Center (DKTM).

The group includes Hamit Ağırman, Barış Aydoğan and Fahrettin Bozkurt.

Speaking on behalf of the group, Hamit Ağırman said on behalf of the Saarbrücken Democratic Kurdish Community Center that they condemn the isolation imposed upon Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan.

Pointing out that the Kurdish people continue the Freedom Vigil with great determination and patience, Ağırman emphasized that the way to nullify the conspiracy is to spread the organization. Ağırman added: “We say that the enemy will never reach his goal. We will always act with great determination. Not only will it be essential for us to condemn, but from now on we must strive to organize. The antidote to conspiracy is organization. The more we grow, the more we increase our organization, the more we can embrace our Leadership and the more we can respond to the enemy. We can achieve this through organization. Our enemy is acting comprehensively. On the other hand, we will grow prepare and act more. We will not attempt anything unorganized. If a people is unorganized, it will come face to face with extinction. Organization is necessary for us.”
