The thing with the Kurdish Worker's Party and their jailed leader, Ocalan? The short explanation is that many Kurds that are jailed in Turkey along with a few Kurdish lawmakers began a hunger strike protest to demand that Kurdish be allowed in their schools and to free Ocalan. After nearly 70 days, Ocalan (in negotiations with Turkish authorities) asked his followers to end their protest as progress had been made. The Turks were worried that if anyone died during the hunger strike, violence would follow making a tense situation even worse. The problem is that the Kurdish Worker's Party and Ocalan are considered terrorists not only by Turkey but by other countries such as the US for their long running guerilla war against the Turks which has already left thousands dead. A few thousand Kurds that are jailed were arrested by Turkish authorities on suspicion of them of having ties to the terrorist organization. One could argue that the party is similar to the PLO and Ocalan is their version of Arafat.
