Presentation by Havin Guneser 

Journalist and Activist 

Thursday 21st of September 2017, 1-2pm

Room 101, Bridge Room, First Floor, Hardiman Research Building

Irish Centre for Human Rights, NUIG  

This presentation will focus upon the Kurdish struggle, the PKK (Kurdistan's Workers Party) and Abdullah Öcalan, who is the founding political leader of the PKK. Öcalan has been imprisoned since 1999 on Imrali Island, and from prison he has published several books on the Kurdish struggle. As an example, Öcalan's thought has been the platform upon which the democratic confederalism in Rojava (West Kurdistan/Syrian Kurdistan) has been built. 

 

 In this presentation, Havin Guneser, will speak on Öcalan's most recent book "Capitalism: The Age of Unmasked Gods and Naked Kings", which is the second book in a new five-volume work called Manifesto for a Democratic Civilization. Together, they present a synthesis of Öcalan’s political thinking. This volume completes his journey through the history of civilizations, preparing the ground for the upcoming volume entitled "The Sociology of Freedom".  

Havin Guneser is an engineer, journalist and a women‘s rights activist. She is one of the spokespersons of the International Initiative “Freedom for Abdullah Öcalan – Peace in Kurdistan” and the translator on Abdullah Öcalan’s books.

 All welcome!
