Condemning the international conspiracy that targeted the leader Abdullah Ocalan on February 15th, 1999, the Women Council in North and East Syria issued a statement to the public opinion, and it included:
A statement to the public opinion
“Today marks the twenty-first anniversary of the arrest of the Kurdish leader, Mr. Abdullah Ocalan, the leader of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in an international conspiracy, in which the largest global hegemonic forces participated, as it was implemented by the Turkish intelligence outside the country’s borders. The dominant forces have found that the thought and philosophy of the leader Abdullah Ocalan will constitute an obstacle in front of implementing their plans in the Middle East, and he called for a peaceful and political solution to the Kurdish issue in the Middle East, which did not satisfy the advocators of war.
Arresting the leader Abdullah Ocalan aimed at silencing the freedom voice of all the peoples demanding freedom, democracy and peace.
We in the Women Council in North and East Syria denounce and condemn this conspiracy against Mr. Ocalan, as it contradicts the most basic rights and violates the international standards that safeguard human’s dignity and freedom. The leader Abdullah Ocalan is the most prominent defenders of woman rights, and his ideas had the pioneering role in woman’s revolution in Rojava and the gains she achieved in north and east Syria.
Capturing the leader is considered a crime against humanity and all the peoples of the Middle East, and everyone who participated in this crime must be brought to a fair trial. The deprivation that the international leader exposed to is a continuation of the international conspiracy against the Kurdish people, the peoples of the Middle East, and all human rights defenders in the world.
We call for all advocators of freedom to struggle for achieving the freedom of the Kurdish leader Abdullah Ocalan.”
Freedom for the leader Abdullah Ocalan and all the opinion detainees in the world.
Shame for the Turkish state.
