Women in Hamburg collect signature for the '100 Reasons to Prosecute the Dictator' campaign
A stand was opened in Hamburg to collect signatures for the "100 Reasons to Prosecute the Dictator" campaign and letters were sent to the UN demanding the end of the isolation and freedom for Abdullah Öcalan.
Activists in Hamburg opened a stand to collect signatures for the "100 Reasons to Prosecute the Dictator" campaign launched by the European Kurdish Women's Movement (TJK-E) on 25 November.
The stand was opened in the Altona and was organized by the Rojbin Women's Council.
Photographs of women killed by the Turkish state were shown at the stand where many signatures were collected.
Women activists also sent a letter to the UN General Secretary calling for an end to the isolation imposed on Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan and urging the UN to do what is in its power to achieve his freedom.
TJK-E activist Ruha Baran said: “As we are ready to welcome 8 March, the policies of massacre, rape and violence against women continue. We are again on the street to reiterate our rejection of these policies. We are fighting so that deaths stop and no women suffer violence. Parallel to this, there is a policy of isolation imposed on the whole society in the person of our Leader, Öcalan. The UN has to fulfil its duty.”
