Al-Qamishli: »We don’t want Kurdish language schools, but the fall of the regime.«

KURDWATCH, October 25, 2011—Nationwide protests on October 21, 2011, resulted again in numerous dead and injured. Throughout the country, demonstrators united under the motto »The indecision of the Arab states claims further martyrs« took to the streets to demand the fall of the regime. Protests also took place in al-Qamishli, ʿAmudah, Darbasiyah, Raʾs al-ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê), and ʿAyn al-ʿArab (Kobanî). During the protests, the assassination of Mishʿal at-Tammu was again heavily criticized. A banner in al-Qamishli read: »You killed Mishʿal, but not his spirit in us.« In reaction to the Kurdish »language schools« that the Democratic Union Party (PYD) provisionally opened in several Kurdish cities, demonstrators displayed banners with the slogan: »We don´t want Kurdish language schools, but the fall of the regime.«
