Fifteen people have today started an indefinite hunger strike in Strasbourg to demand freedom for Öcalan and guarantees about his health and security conditions. Protestors will also call on the European Council and the European Union to take action against the pressures the Turkish state puts on the Kurdish people.The group of protestors, naming themselves as Initiative for Freedom for Öcalan, will start their act with a press statement to be made in front of the European Council building.
The spokesman for the Initiative, journalist-writer Fuat Kav, remarked that the group consisted of Kurds from different parts of Europe and called on the Kurdish people in the region to support the act for Kurdish people’s leader Öcalan.
The act with the slogan “Freedom for Öcalan, status for Kurdish people” will also demand the exclusion of the PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party) from the terror organization list of the European Union.
Journalist and writer Kav stated that all the initiatives and organizations that demand freedom for Öcalan could come together under a single roof in the coming process.
