On November 27, 45 years have passed since the founding of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, led by leader Abdullah Ocalan, who has been detained by Turkey for more than 25 years.

45 years have passed between the founding of the party and its spread to become the first defender the rights of the Kurds in various regions of Kurdistan, despite the military and media war to which the party and its leaders are exposed, and the state of distortion and siege it faces from the major imperialist powers.

The party and leader Abdullah Ocalan have also become a symbol for free people around the world, and its fighters have become a symbol of sacrifice and redemption for the sake of freedom and democracy.

According to experts, the PKK, despite its military victories, also possesses political and economic ideas capable of providing realistic solutions to the crises of Middle Eastern countries.

Fernaz Attia, a researcher in Kurdish affairs, believes that: “The party was founded on November 27, 1978 by a group of Kurdish youth. They were not symbols or leaders at that time, but rather a group of youth that wanted to defend the cultural, political and social rights of the Kurds in Turkey.”

Fernaz Attia told ANHA agency: “Since the beginning of its founding, the party has stood against Western imperialism and rejects Western expansion, interventions, and policies towards Middle Eastern issues. The party resorted to armed struggle to extract the rights of the Kurds from the Turkish state, which was and still is greatly oppressing the Kurds, and has not adhered to any agreement that was signed with the party, more than 45 years after the founding of the party, the conflict still exists between the party and Turkey.”

Distortion of the party

Fernaz Attia pointed out that: “Turkey has resorted to distorting the image of the Kurds in general and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party in particular, and has sought to attach the accusation of terrorism to the party and the Kurds in general. This view differed greatly with the war against ISIS and the participation of the Syrian Democratic Forces, the majority of which are made up of Kurds. They proved that unprecedented courage in confronting the terrorist organization ISIS, which many regular armies failed to confront, which brought about a change in the world’s view of the Kurds, and refuted the Turkish allegations and lies about Kurdish terrorism, while it was Turkey that was supporting ISIS with weapons at that time to confront the Kurdish forces.”

Fernaz Attia explained: “The world has not done anything about the Kurdish issue out of concern for its interests with Turkey, and is still turning a blind eye to the violations that the Kurdish leader Abdullah Ocalan is being subjected to in Imrali prison in Turkey, and depriving him of all his rights guaranteed to him by international law and norms.”

Farinaz Attia considered that: “The party’s position on Western policies and its rejection of Western interference in the affairs of the region is behind the silence regarding the Turkish violations that the party and its leader are subjected to, especially since Turkey is considered the spearhead of the Western regime in achieving its goals and interests in the Middle East.”

Party solutions

The researcher confirms that: “The ideas presented by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party have solutions that, if applied on the ground, would succeed in solving many problems and crises, especially on the economic level. There are ideas that, if implemented by Middle Eastern countries, would dispense with their wealth and capabilities from Western countries and end their dependency.” "For the West."

Fernaz Attia explained: “The political solutions presented by the party also carry a lot of good for the region, as the party adopts liberal ideas that, if they were applied in the Middle East, the countries of the region would have succeeded in liberating themselves from colonial and Western influence.”
