 The People's Initiative for North and East Syria announced, through a press conference held on the 12th of last January, its joining the campaign led by the "International Justice for the Kurds" initiative, and said in the statement: "We will spare no effort in the struggle in all its democratic forms, and in all institutions and organizations to remove the name of the PKK from terrorist lists, and we will collect signatures in this regard.”

 Democratic objection to political decision

 Ayed Ibrahim explained that the inclusion of the name of the PKK in the “terror list” is an injustice resulting from international interests, and he continued: “The peoples of northern and eastern Syria demanded to remove the name of the PKK from the “terror list” because the decision to include it  was political decision. The PKK fights for the freedom of the peoples of the Middle East, especially the Kurdish people."

 The goal was to collect one million signatures, but the result was two million and 476 thousand

 Ibrahim explained that the peoples of northern and eastern Syria see the PKK as a party that struggles for the people, and commented on the percentage of participation in the campaign and its adoption, saying: "By collecting signatures, we wanted to convey our voice to the world and democratic circles, and to denounce the decision to include the name of the PKK on the 'terror list'." 

The campaign was concluded through a press conference held on May 21. When we launched the campaign, our goal was to collect one million signatures, but in total, two million and 476,173 signatures were collected. This indicates that the peoples of northern and eastern Syria see the PKK as a party fighting for  peoples and defends and embraces societal values ​​accordingly. The peoples of the region realize that the PKK is fighting for the liberation of the peoples from the hegemonic regime.”

 "As if they were joining the freedom dance"

 Ayed Ibrahim continued, saying: "The signature campaign took place in various neighborhoods, villages and cities in a festive atmosphere, as the people, young and old, over the age of 18 joined it. The campaign took place in the Kurdish and Arab regions as well as joining a dance for freedom  A very large number of signatures were collected in Raqqa, Tabqa and Manbij. I can say clearly that these areas have not witnessed such successful work before now."

 "The people said, 'Enough of the injustice'."

 A member of the People’s Initiative for North and East Syria, Ayed Ibrahim, commented on the people’s message, saying: “The PKK not only represents more than forty million people in the four parts of Kurdistan, but also the free society in the Middle East and the world as well. Through the successful signature campaign, the people pointed out that the real terrorists are the occupiers who evacuated villages and attacked the four parts of Kurdistan on a daily basis. This is the definition of terrorism according to international laws but unfortunately the name of the Kurdistan Workers Party was included on the 'terror list' as a result of international interests, the people of north and east Syria said through their participation in the campaign,  Is enough".
