KSN Introduction to Ocalan Meeting 8th Feb 2021
A seminar and Q and A introducing the key ideas of Abdullah Ocalan and why his struggle is important to revolutionaries, not just in Kurdistan, but all over the world!

As part of the Long March in the UK the Kurdistan Solidarity Network will host a series of events calling for an end to the isolation of the Kurdistan Freedom Movement's leader, Abdullah Ocalan, who has spent the last 22 years in a prison of the fascist Turkish state on Imralli island. For many of these years he has also been kept in isolation. In this seminar, we will ask why the Turkish state feels that its so necessary to keep Ocalan imprisoned under these conditions and will show that the Turkish state and the global powers that support it are terrified about the idea of Ocalan's ideas becoming widespread and being heard by revolutionaries across the world.

Speakers include Clare Baker from the Freedom for Ocalan trade union capaign, Reimar Heider from the International Initiative for the Freedom of Abdullah Ocalan and Berivan Qerecox an internationalist from Scotland who spent 2 years in the Kurdistan Women's Movement.

We look forward to seeing you there!
