I am Claudia Korol, feminist from Abya Yala and from the popular education team Pañuelos en Rebeldía.
I am writing to the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, to urgently intervene to stop the genocide that the Turkish state is committing against Kurdish women and the Kurdish people.
To stop the massacre that Erdogan is committing against Kurdistan.
If the UN was really born to fight for peace, today this mission is being tested.
And you Mr. Guterres have in your hands the urgent intervention for to do it.
And to ensure a just peace in Turkey, the freedom of Ocalan is essential.
Why are we as feminists asking for this?
First, because it is an aberrant injustice to have the leader of the Kurdish people, who has spent more than 20 years in prison in such cruel isolation that it can be considered real torture.
But we also ask for their freedom because there were many contributions that Ocalan made so that we could advance on the path of a dignified life for the peoples, where there are no fascist, racist, colonialist, imperialist, capitalist, nor patriarchal oppression.
Because it opened the way for a popular project, where women are protagonists.
We know that the contribution of the Kurdish movement was essential for the defeat of ISIS and other forces in the region.
As feminists from a continent that has suffered genocide and colonialism
We say: Now is the time, freedom for Abdullah Ocalan!
