Al-Qamishli: Nighttime demonstrations in Kurdish cities

KURDWATCH, June 10, 2011—During nighttime demonstrations on June 7, 2011 in al-Qamishli, ʿAmudah, Raʾs al-ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê), and ʿAyn al-ʿArab (Kobanî), several thousand people took to the streets with candles and demanded the end of Baath rule. They showed solidarity with the victims in other Syrian cities and protested against any dialogue with representatives of the Syrian regime. The demonstrations occurred in connection with Bashar al-Assad’s offer to speak with the Syrian-Kurdish parties. In ʿAmudah the demonstrators used slogans such as »Freedom for Syria, out with Bashar«.
