Free Ocalan demonstration 30 July 2016

Öcalan’s freedom is not only a key demand of millions of Kurds. Together with the release of the other political prisoners, it is a necessary step on the way to peace. Öcalan is recognised by all sides as the key person for a real process. He has put a peaceful solution on the Kurdish people’s agenda. His “Road Map” is the only comprehensive peace plan on the table so far. He has to be Free and able to communicate with all parties concerned.

We call on You to attend this demonstration for the sake of our Kurdish movement and our leader Öcalan.

DATE: 30TH JULY
TIME: 15:00
PLACE: EDMONTON ANGEL CORNER
