via ANF-News

The internationalists stated that the achievements reached in Rojava thanks to Öcalan’s philosophy are actually for the entire humanity.

Internationalists marching from Luxembourg to Strasbourg reached Metz in France on the 3rd day of the long march.

The first thing internationalists did once in Metz was to visit the metropolitan municipality. Deputy Mayor Nathalie De Oliviera met with members of the Long March committee and internationalists in the town hall.

The activists delivered a dossier containing information on the isolation against Abdullah Öcalan in Imrali, the pressures of the Turkish state on the Kurds, the march to Strasbourg, the hunger strikes and the honorary citizenship for Öcalan.

CDK-F co-chair Vedat Bingöl recalled that Öcalan has been kept in isolation for 20 years and that in fact isolation was not only imposed on him but on all Kurdish people and other peoples in the Middle East.

Bingöl spoke about the hunger strikes carried out in many cities and reminded the deputy mayor of the critical health condition reached by many.

Following Bingöl, internationalists shared their views and suggestions. In the speeches made by the Internationalists, it was noted that Öcalan’s democratic modernity theses contain a solution vision for the Middle East.

The internationalists stated that the achievements reached in Rojava thanks to Öcalan’s philosophy are actually for the entire humanity.

Deputy mayor De Oliviera said she was happy to host the activists and added: “I commend the Kurdish people. They’re ready to give their life for the sake of freedom without blinking. We, as the people of Metz, want to say that we are proud of you and the struggle of women in Rojava. We see your women as icons of peace. I hope and wish that this is your last march. I hope that you achieve your rights and the rights of other peoples soon.”

Deputy mayor De Oliviera expressed that she will forward the dossier on Öcalan to the mayor and invited the activists to rest, before heading off once again.
