9. The colonial Turkish state, in all Kurdistan, by using oppression forces our patriotic people to isolate, report and even fight against the guerrilla. This issue has been known since history, it is insisting on the policy of turning the Kurd against one another. One of the most striking examples of this is the oppression practised on the Osyan Village and its people.

The fascist authorities of the Turkish State in the region who threaten the people of the Osyan Village and family elders by saying, "You will lead us in operations or we will rot you in prisons", aim to intimidate the patriotic people in the region.

As always, our people of the region, which are being attempted to be turned into village guards under the pretext of providing support to our movement and struggle, for their own honour and pride, has not entered into any activity that would mean self-hostility against oneself, as it would suit one from Kurdistan.

If the AKP state says it is very strong, that it has tanks and planes, why is it that they are imposing our people to join their operations. Our people should say that; 'If you are strong, then go and do your own operations'

An important example of the fact that the operations of the Turkish State towards our Movement have been inconclusive is that they impose forceful participation in the operations against the guerrilla, with pressure and repression of the elders of Doganköy (Osyan) village in Siirt's Pervari district. The pressure, torture and threat policies that are applied to the people of the region in a helpless and incapacitated way will be wasted by the resolute stance of us and our people.
