Al-Qamishli: Protests on the »Day of the Kurdish Martyr«

KURDWATCH, March 11, 2011—The Kurdish Political Council in Syria has called for a demonstration to mark the seventh anniversary of the »al-Qamishli Uprising« of March 12, 2004. The demonstration is scheduled for March 12, 2011, at 3 pm at the Qudurbak cemetery in al-Qamishli where many of the victims of the uprising are buried. A five minute silent protest is planned at 11 am. March 12 is known to activists as the »Day of the Kurdish Martyr«. The Kurdish Political Council, a coalition of nine Syrian-Kurdish parties, also called for lighting candles on rooftops and in front of homes and businesses on the eve of March 12, 2011.
