The Communist Party of Swaziland (CPS) celebrated the 42nd anniversary of the founding of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
The Communist Party of Swaziland (CPS) issued a written statement to celebrate the 42nd anniversary of the founding of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
The Communist Party of Swaziland issued "the internationalist call for the freedom of the people of Kurdistan. We pay special tribute to all the martyrs of freedom as well as their families, patriotic people, friends, organisations and all comrades who wage the fight in the mountains, cities and prisons."
The CPS also "pays tribute to the founding member of the PKK, President Apo Abdullah Ocalan and calls for his unconditional release. For his fight for freedom, Apo Ocalan was abducted in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1999 by the Turkish National Intelligence Agency, with the support of the CIA, and taken to Turkey, where he was sentenced to death, which was later commuted to aggravated life imprisonment."
The CPS also "commends the PKK’s struggle for the emancipation of all women. Indeed, women are practically involved in the struggle for the freedom of the Kurdistan people – in the mountains, cities and all other places. The people of Swaziland, as they fight for freedom from the iron boot of the absolute monarchy that continues to oppress them since 12 April 1974, are greatly inspired by such great voluntary work on the side of the people. Indeed, the popular movement, which developed under the leadership of the PKK has now reached the power to defeat these colonial special war policies, as the People's Defence Central Headquarters Command stated recently."
