Mother Aqeedah … symbol of resistance, struggle for dignity
Mother Aqeedah Ali Osman was born in 1966 in Girkê Legê. She got to know the Kurdistan Freedom Movement in the eighties, fighting in its ranks as a national, feminist and political activist for the marginalized and denied Kurdish Cause by the world, at the forefront of the Turkish state.
She was at the forefront of fighting the Turkish occupation and authoritarian regimes as a result she was arrested by the Syrian government security agencies and imprisoned twice.
Despite this, she did not give up a belief and pledged to struggle against the Turkish occupation and authoritarian regimes and the liberation of women from the restrictions of society.
She put on black until leader Ocalan could gain “freedom.”
She was distinguished by her sociable character and her love for Kurds and Arabs. She assumed administrative duties at the Kongra Star in order to organize women under the yoke of an authoritarian male mentality. Later she was elected as an administrator in the reconciliation committee in Girkê Legê district, where she played key role in solving the lingering problems in society.
The mother’s belief in her determination to put on black is known since the arrest of the leader Abdullah Ocalan in 1999, as she vowed to fight for the freedom of Leader Ocalan.
