“First, we congratulate all humanity on the birth of the leader Ocalan, where the birth of the leader and his political, practical and revolutionary life is considered the main joint and a fundamental turning point in the political, democratic and philosophical and societal direction in the societies of the Middle East. Perhaps the most important question that comes to our imagination is that we always say that the leader Ocalan is the leader of the peoples in the Middle East. And for everyone who considers himself a revolutionary democratic person who opposes all the authoritarian, opportunistic and dictatorial practices of the majority of regional and global regimes towards their peoples and their societal components, for that leader Ocalan is not only a Kurdish leader, but he has fought for Oppressed oppressed peoples that faced tyranny and political and societal injustice.For our “PYD Youth Campaign” campaign, which comes in the context of the ongoing (Berxwdan jiyane) campaign.
As you know, we, as people of all walks of life, celebrate the birth of the leader every year for decades, by holding activities and events and planting trees, because of the leader’s love and reverence for nature. Unfortunately, this year, as you know, due to the current circumstances of the spread of Corona virus in the world and its grave danger to humanity, all occasions and holidays have been canceled by the self-administration in order to preserve the lives and health of the people in northern and eastern Syria.
That is why we, as a youth, have seen us start with a campaign on this occasion with this interactive activity because it has a spiritual and revolutionary meaning by lighting candles in every home or wherever our youth and every person considers himself patriotic, revolutionary and democratic loves the leader philosophy Ocalan. And that the candle is photographed “video” and then posted on social media on their personal pages, as well as published on all official pages, and the largest number of young people and the rest of society are involved.
We have created a hashtag and a text that includes how to work and when to start the campaign, on / 4. From the month of April / in addition to the slogans that we translated into Arabic, English, Syriac, Turkish and French languages to reach a greater number of activists, politicians, activists and media, in addition to all spectrums of our people that include slogans calling for freedom for the leader Ocalan and all political prisoners.
We also hope that everyone publishes the video clip, accompanied with multilingual logos, to celebrate Commander Ocalan’s birthday.
