Al-Qamishli: Regime critics demonstrate again

KURDWATCH, May 31, 2011—Nation-wide protests on May 27, 2011 resulted in numerous dead and injured. As in previous weeks, the demonstrations in al-Qamishli, ʿAmudah, Darbasiyah, Raʾs al-ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê), and ʿAyn al-ʿArab (Kobanî) were largely peaceful. In the Kurdish regions more than twenty thousand people took to the streets. The protestors demanded democracy, freedom and the overthrow of the regime. One day before the demonstrations, Internet connections in most Kurdish cities were blocked.
