The strict isolation imposed on the leader Abdullah Ocalan, who has been detained in Imrali prison for nearly 25 years (February 15, 1999), has been widely rejected by the popular and women's circles in NE Syria.
No information has been received about the leader Abdullah Ocalan since March 25, 2021.
On the 26th of last April, the Turkish occupation state issued a new ban on leader Abdullah Ocalan, despite the fact that the previous ban against him has not expired.
Sana Rajab, a citizen from Manbij and from the Circassian component, rejected the strict isolation imposed on the leader Abdullah Ocalan, and noted that the Turkish occupation state aims to impose isolation "to break the will of free peoples, and strip all components of their rights after their implementation leader's thought.
In order to protect the gains achieved by women and the people of NE Syria, Sana Rajab affirmed that they will raise generations that take the ideas and philosophy of the leader Abdullah Ocalan as their approach, and pledged to resist and struggle to spread the leader's thought, and liberate all oppressed women because "women's freedom is linked to with the freedom of the leader."
As for Hanan Muhammad, from the Arab component, she demanded an end to the isolation imposed on the "woman's companion," leader Abdullah Ocalan, and said: "Thanks to his free thought, women gained their rights, and their revolution in NE Syria became an example to be followed around the world."
"It is our duty, we women of the city of Manbij, to continue the path of the leader who sacrificed his physical freedom for the sake of liberating women and oppressed peoples, and we must raise the pace of our struggle to achieve the leader's physical freedom," she stressed.
For her part, Rama Barkal, from the Kurdish component, denounced the strict isolation imposed on the humanitarian and international leader Abdullah Ocalan, and referred to their demand for "international and human rights organizations to lift the isolation and hold the Turkish occupation state accountable for its violations against the leader."
Our freedom is linked to the freedom of the leader
When we asked about the reason for women's attachment to the leader Abdullah Ocalan, Rama Barkal confirmed that the credit goes to the leader Abdullah Ocalan and his ideas advocating women's freedom. In order to achieve the freedom of the leader who has been detained in a prison on Imrali Island for nearly 24 years, amid strict conditions of isolation imposed by the Turkish occupation state, she stressed, "We, the peoples of the region, are continuing our struggle, and our voices will remain loud in our first and last demand, which is to end the imposition of isolation on the leader."
Adding, "With our resistance and solidarity, we will break the walls of Imrali and liberate the leader physically."
While Ghanima Taha, from the Turkmen component, confirmed that they would remain in the resistance arenas until the physical freedom of the leader Abdullah Ocalan is achieved, saying: "With our struggle and strong will, we will remain in the arenas until we physically liberate the leader, and we are all convinced that our freedom is linked to the leader's freedom."
