Letter from the Plaza de Mayo mother Nora Cortiñas to Leyla Güven

Solidarity letter of Nora Cortiñas from Plaza de Mayo, Argentina:

Comrade Leyla Güven,

I am Nora Cortiñas, Mother of Plaza de Mayo-Linea Fundadora.

I am writing to express solidarity with the struggle you are carrying out for the freedom of your people, and to end the isolation against the jailed leader of the Kurdish movement Abdullah Öcalan.

We know that your life and health are at risk, but that you are firm in your determination to continue with this action until the Erdogan regime allows Öcalan to communicate with his people.

The Mothers of Plaza de Mayo-Linea Fundadora have more than 40 years of resistance to dictatorship, which is why we know that in this struggle one commits his/her life in many ways.

We wish that this action that is multiplying in different prisons, would not be only a gesture of dignity and an example, in a world shaken by indifference. We wish it also achieves the goal of freedom of all political prisoners.

I send you a hug, and the commitment to shout here very loud and to amplify your call.

I know that soon this hug will be real, that we will hug each other, and we will continue close to you, accompanying you, in your struggle for the women’s revolution in Kurdistan.

Hasta la victoria, siempre.

Nora Cortiñas
