Zeydan said: "They want the unlawful isolation on Mr. Ocalan to be abolished, his freedom to be ensured and the Kurdish issue to be solved. We want the government to fulfil the demands of our friends. What we need is peace. The people have seen a lot of pain, a lot of blood has been shed, mothers have suffered a lot. Enough is enough. Our people's need is not war or isolation. They need peace, negotiation, and the solution of the Kurdish issue through dialogue."
