Andok – Zafer Kapıcı

Our comrade Andok, who was born into a patriotic and working-class family in Erdîş (Erciş) district of Van province, grew up in a patriotic environment. Forced to go to metropolises at a young age due to the forced migration and deterritorialization policies of the colonial Turkish state, he began to realize the racist and genocidal reality of the fascist Turkish state. Comrade Andok was in search of a struggle against the policy of genocide and turned his face to the free mountains in 2014. He was convinced that the PKK is a genuine struggle and resistance movement against all kinds of injustice and genocide policy.

Comrade Andok displayed a constant development and succeeded in creating an Apoist self-sacrificing militant personality by incorporating the ideology of Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan and the culture of labour, resistance and loyalty to the native lands. Comrade Andok, who had garnered much practice in a short time from Serhat to the Zagros, was a guerrilla known for his hardworking and humble personality fighting always on the resistance front. Known for his courage and valour in the areas of Serhat, Avaşîn and Xakurkê, our comrade always left a mark wherever he went to. Andok participated in many actions in the Stûnê and Basya areas against the invasion attacks of the genocidal Turkish state and displayed heroic resistance. He will always be remembered as a symbol of labour and sacrifice in the struggle for freedom with his efforts and self-sacrificing stance and will be an inspiration to us on the road to victory.

We extend our condolences to the precious family of our martyred comrade, the people of Erdîş and all patriotic people of Kurdistan.
