    At the upcoming of the first anniversary of massacre of Roboski villagers, the president of Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK) Murad Karayilan asked that those responsible of this crime must be prosecuted.

    Karayilan in an exclusive interview with Firatnews agency said; the position of Turkish government regarding massacre of Roboski villagers has showed the Turkish occupation policy about Kurds. He said; the massacres of Dersim, massacres during Sheix Seid revolution, Sasus, Zilan, etc. all were committed in the similar way.

    In the tragedy of Roboski, the Turkish government has repeated its former policies; despite all the protests, while they have not revealed the details of this massacre, they even did not apologize.

    Karayilan, asked that this crime, was committed in front of the eyes of the international community, thus, it should be prosecuted at the international level.

    In addition, in this interview the president of KCK in relation to the unexpected death of Turgut Ozal, the former president of Turkey said, leader Apo (Abdullah Ocalan) was the first person who said the death of Ozal was unnatural and he was murdered. Because, at the time of Ozal´s death, there was a ceasefire between PKK and Turkey, and Ozal had a prominent role, Karayilan said.

    Karayilan notes that Turgot Ozal was killed by the order of powers behind the scene of Turkish regime, the risk that Ozal was aware of it, but as he once said he admitted it to achieve his goal.

    Furthermore, Karayilan by citing the process of solving Kurdish solution in 1993 reminded that thousands of Kurdish civilians were murdered in mysterious circumstances. It is clear that these killings were committed by the Turkish regime and if they want to reach a meaningful result they should refer to the events of 1993.

    In this interview, the president of KCK about the calls of the liberation movement of Kurdistan (PKK) for ceasefire, said when we speak about peace, some people think that we are begging it but we are not in a weak position at all. The only reason for our calls is that we believe to the peace and brotherhood between nations, if not, the movement of PKK is able to achieve freedom for its nation by waging war.

    We have this ability but we are looking for a peaceful solution, Karayilan said.

    While addressing the Turkish regime, Karaiylan said, when we take step for solution of the problem, you should welcome this and cooperate with us. We ended the mass hunger strike in prisons but the prime minister fueled tensions. Now they have more expectations from us and fastened more the belt of occupation, this is unacceptable. In reaction we call all to support stronger the liberation movement.

    QANDIL,— In a new year's massage released on Sterk TV, the acting commander of the Turkey Kurdistan Workers' Party PKK and Kurdish Communities Union (KCK) Executive Council President Murat Karayılan conveyed wishes of freedom, democracy and brotherhood of all peoples in Kurdistan and the Middle East.

    Karayılan evaluated 2012 as a year of resistance and achievement by the Kurdish people whose struggle in both political and diplomatic areas inside and outside Kurdistan defeated AKP government's policy aimed at eliminating Kurds, he underlined.

    Referring to the developments in West Kurdistan [Syrian Kurdistan] as of mid July, Karayılan commented the Kurdish revolution in this territory as a new page in the history of the Kurdish people.

    KCK President pointed out that no power will be able to prevent Kurdish people's fight for freedom or the reality of Kurdistan, noting that Kurds will take their place in the re-design process of the Middle East.

    Evaluating recent developments in Turkey, Karayılan called on AKP government to end monist policies which – he said- meant Turkification of people under compulsion. “The AKP government must accept the fact that this policy will not work, just like it has failed for the last 90 years”, he added.

    Responding to Turkish Prime Minister who has recently said that “PKK members can go to other countries after laying their arms down”, Karayılan evaluated Erdoğan's statement as an attack against the Kurdish people and their values and added;

    “Erdoğan must know that we are from Kurdistan, that we love this country and that we paid great prices for this country. In response to Erdoğan who offers two alternatives, either to become Turk and agree on a single nation or to leave the country, I say that it is him who must leave this territory which is Kurdistan and is our country. Everyone should know that guerrillas of the freedom movement and the resistance of the Kurdish people will remain alive as long as the armed repression and political slaughter of the Kurdish people continue.”

    Referring to the recently increasing smear campaign of the Turkish media against the PKK (Kurdistan Workers Party), KCK President remarked that “We will not pull back from our fight but we will side with a solution through dialogue and negotiation if authorities recognize the Kurdish people, see their reality and end policies of occupation”.

    Since it was established in 1984, the PKK has been fighting the Turkish state, which still denies the constitutional existence of Kurds, to establish a Kurdish state in the south east of the country. By 2012, more than 45,000 people have since been killed.

    But now its aim is the creation an autonomous region and more cultural rights for ethnic Kurds who constitute the greatest minority in Turkey. A large Turkey's Kurdish community, numbering to 25 million, openly sympathise with PKK rebels.

    The PKK wants constitutional recognition for the Kurds, regional self-governance and Kurdish-language education in schools.

    The PKK has nearly 50 thousand trained fighters on fronts and streets war, as they are deployed within the Kurdish areas near the common border of Turkey with both Iraq and Syria.

    PKK's demands included releasing PKK detainees, lifting the ban on education in Kurdish, paving the way for an autonomous democrat Kurdish system within Turkey, reducing pressure on the detained PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan, stopping military action against the Kurdish party and recomposing the Turkish constitution.

    The rebels have scaled back their demands for more political autonomy for Turkey's ethnic Kurds.

    Turkey refuses to recognize its Kurdish population as a distinct minority. It has allowed some cultural rights such as limited broadcasts in the Kurdish language and private Kurdish language courses with the prodding of the European Union, but Kurdish politicians say the measures fall short of their expectations.
