The people of Shengal protested the International Conspiracy against Kurdish people’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan with a march.
On the occasion of the 24th anniversary of the International Conspiracy against Kurdish people’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan, a march was organized in Shengal. The march was attended by hundreds of people under the leadership of the Shengal Democratic People’s Assembly.
Speaking on behalf of the Shengal Autonomous Administration, Heso İbrahim said: “The people of Shengal owe their freedom to Leader Apo’s [Abdullah Öcalan] philosophy. After the massacre by ISIS in 2014, only Leader Apo’s fighters extended their hands to us. We will never forget this effort and we won’t forget those who betrayed us. Leader Apo is currently being held under severe isolation conditions. This isolation was developed not only against Leader Apo, but against all humanity. We call on the CPT to inform the public about his health.”
Speaking on behalf of TAJÊ, Naim Bedel said: “Before, everyone saw himself as the owner of Shengal and expected our people to serve them. However, Leader Apo’s ideas enabled us to break the chains of slavery. We call on our people to fight for the freedom of Leader Apo.”
Meyan Nasır, speaking on behalf of the Shengal Martyrs’ Families Committee, called on the Yazidi community to take action until the freedom of Kurdish people’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan is ensured.
The President of the Arab Villages Council, Ebu Seger, said: “We, the Arab and Yazidi peoples, must unite until the freedom of Leader Apo is achieved. We call on the UN to fulfil its responsibility.”
