On the second day of the action week for the freedom of Abdullah Öcalan in Düsseldorf, the Kurdish exile politician Besime Konca spoke about women's liberation, which is the basis of the model of a democratic society put forward by Öcalan.
In Düsseldorf, the week of action for the freedom of Abdullah Öcalan, which started on Monday in front of the North Rhine-Westphalian parliament, continues. On the second day of the series of events organized by the Kurdish association FED-MED, a vigil took place at Corneliusplatz Square. Kurds from Cologne and Düsseldorf took part in the action. Today's speaker was the Kurdish exile politician Besime Konca, who spoke about the women's liberation struggle.
The former HDP deputy, who herself spent years in prison in Turkey, began her address with greetings to the political prisoners who have been holding five-day hunger strikes in groups since the end of November. She then addressed the issue of women's liberation, which is the basis of the model of a democratic society put forward by Öcalan. Konca pointed out that despite the oppression of the Kurdish people, which is aimed at genocide, Öcalan's paradigm is being discussed and recognized internationally.
"Today we are fighting not only against Turkish fascism, but at the same time against the system of capitalist modernity in which we live. This struggle is carried out by many peoples on the world, so we should unite our forces," Besime Konca said.
Musicians from TEV-ÇAND performed in the cultural program. The musical contributions of Deniz Deman, Hozan Şemdin, Diyar, Ali İkizer and Serhad Med were met with great interest.
The action week continues until Saturday and will be concluded with a demonstration.
