Leila Khaled’s Message from Amed/Diyarbakır to #OccupyGezi

“You have to stay in the square, in Taksim, until the government accepts your demands.  Don’t leave it.  [Stay] there with your peaceful demonstration, your peaceful strike, sit-in.  And I call upon women to join it on a wide scale everywhere, in the squares in different cities, not only in Taksim.  Long live the people’s struggle for their rights!” — Leila Khaled

Leila Khaled is a politburo member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.  She is currently in Amed/Diyarbakır for the First Middle East Women’s Conference.  Video by Barış Yıldırım (aka Ozan Baran).
