Kongra Star in Afrin canton organized a demonstration on the 21st anniversary of the international conspiracy that led to the capture of leader Abdullah Ocalan in February 15, 1999.
The demonstration started from the village of Babans village, affiliated to Fafin district in Al-Shahba canton, to the village market square, in which the people of Afrin and Al-Shahba provinces participated, despite the heavy snow and low temperatures.
Participants raised pictures of leader Abdullah Ocalan, and banners headed the march, which read: "In the spirit of Resistance of the Age and Dignity, we escalate the pace of the revolution and destroy international conspiracies against the leader", while some marchers wore black clothes, printed on them is the image of Abdullah Ocalan, as an expression of their grief for capturing leader Abdullah Ocalan.
During the demonstration, Kongra Star member, Soraya Habash, delivered a speech. She denounced the international plot by saying: "We will continue the struggle and we will not allow the victory of the Black Day (the conspiracy). Leader Ocalan fought and fights for the freedom of women, and their salvation from injustice and oppression."
"We will face the enemy, and we will fight until the last breath, and we stand hand in hand with all the components to break the conspiracies against us."
Muhammad Hussein also gave a speech on behalf of Ahdath district council in which he said: “We all know that leader Abdullah Ocalan was captured in an international conspiracy, in which Russia, America, Israel, Turkey and Greece participated, but they do not know that we are the people who believe in Ocalan's thought. We will continue the struggle until the conspiracy is thwarted and we will work for the leader to gain his freedom. "
The demonstration ended with chanting slogans calling for the freedom of leader Ocalan and the escalation of resistance and struggle.
