Al-Qamishli: »Bashar is not my president and the government does not represent me«

KURDWATCH, June 28, 2011—Nation-wide protests on June 24, 2011 again resulted in numerous dead and injured. Demonstrators everywhere demanded the overthrow of the regime. As in previous weeks, the demonstrations in al-Qamishli, ʿAmudah, ʿAyn al-ʿArab (Kobanî), Raʾs al-ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê) and Ruknuddin, a predominantly Kurdish-inhabited district of Damascus, were largely peaceful. The number of demonstrators in the Kurdish regions is estimated to have been between 10,000 and 15,000. In the Kurdish cities the demonstrators held up posters that read, for example: »Bashar is not my president and the government does not represent me«, »No to dialogue with the murderers; yes to a national dialogue of redemption«.
