Germany: Pro-Kurdish protesters rally for PKK leader Oecalan's freedom

Several thousand pro-Kurdish protesters and the members of over 40 European organisations staged a demonstration in Duesseldorf on Saturday, demanding the release of the former President of Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) Abdullah Oecalan. People marched through the streets chanting slogans and holding banners with photos of the imprisoned leader, calling for justice. The protest marks one year... Еще after 11 MPs, including the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) party leader Selahattin Demirtas, were detained in Turkey for not giving testimony following alleged terror connections. Abdullah Ocalan was seized in Kenya in 1999 and taken back to Turkey where he was tried and sentenced to death for treason and sedition. The sentence was later commuted to life imprisonment when Turkey abolished the death penalty.
