Freedom for Ocalan

Freedom for Ocalan online rally July 16th, 7 PM

As trade unionists and internationalists, we understand that nothing builds solidarity like a shared struggle and a shared experience.

 

Many of us have experienced the frustration and isolation of lockdown in the face of the COVID 19 pandemic.

For several weeks we have been denied contact with friends and family or worried about being exposed on the front lines while unable to have the comfort of those closest to us.

 

It’s been tough.

 

Now imagine how 21 years would feel.

Abdullah Ocalan, the leader of the Kurdish liberation movement, has been held in solitary confinement in brutal conditions for 21 long years. The trade union movement was at the forefront of the campaign to free Mandela. Now, the time has come for us to lead the call to free Ocalan.

 

On the evening of July 16 at 7 PM, the Freedom for Öcalan campaign is renewing calls for his release in the name of peace and justice.

 

Join campaign co-chairs, Labour peer and former general secretary of the NUT Baroness Blower of Starch Green and Simon Dubbins, international director of Unite the Union and guests; Lloyd Russel-Moyle MP and Manuel Cortes general secretary of the TSSA plus many more TBC including contributions from UK and international trade unions, Kurdish and UK politicians and many other active supporters.
