Al-Qamishli: Three Kurdish parties call on supporters to demonstrate

KURDWATCH, June 6, 2011—Nation-wide protests on June 3, 2011 again 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. For the first time, three Kurdish parties, the Kurdish Union Party in Syria (Yekîtî), the Kurdish Freedom Party in Syria (Azadî), and the Kurdish Freedom Movement in Syria, called on their members to take part in the demonstrations.
