A delegation led by PYD Co-chair Ayse Hiso visited Omer Bagdur, Cemal Kobane, Siyar Xelil and Mele Mustafa Tuzak who continue their hunger strike in Berlin demanding an end to the isolation imposed upon Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Ocalan.

The 4 Kurdish activists had started hunger strikes in Kassel, Nuremberg and Duisburg to support the hunger strikes led by DTK Co-chair and HDP Hakkari MP Leyla Guven and to demand an end to the isolation imposed upon Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Ocalan.

Cemal Kobane, Omer Bagdur, Mele Mustafa Tuzak and Siyar Xelil have continued their hunger strike in Berlin since March. The activists continue their hunger strike in the Democratic Kurdish Society Center (NAV-DEM) locale and receive visitors.

Today’s visitors were from Rojava Kurdistan. A delegation led by PYD Co-chair Ayse Hiso visited the hunger strikers to express support.

NAV-DEM Berlin Co-chair Erhan Firat greeted the delegation which included PYD Afrin Women’s Organization Co-chair Nosira Mele, Official for Afrin Refugees in Shehba Idris Waqqas and PYD Berlin representatives. Omer Bagdur and Cemal Kobane’s families from Kassel were also present in the meeting.

“YOUR DEMAND IS ROJAVA’S DEMAND”

The activists’ children held a banner that read “We are proud of you for your protest”. PYD Co-chair Ayse Heso spoke in the visit and said as representatives from Rojava Kurdistan they support the activists’ demands fully. Hiso pointed to Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Ocalan’s role and mission and said:

“We see that you continue despite your health issues. All of Rojava supports this demand. We bring salutations from the people of Rojava for you. We must not forget that Leader Apo was the source of the 57 day long historic resistance in Afrin as well. Like the people of Rojava and the free women created by Leader Apo’s ideology ended ISIS, this isolation will be ended for sure.”

Cemal Kobane and Omer Bagdur are on day 78 of their hunger strikes while Siyar Xelil is on day 81 and Mele Mustafa Tuzak is on day 94, despite their health continuing to deteriorate.
