Al-Qamishli: For the first time, Kurdish activists demonstrate under their own slogan

KURDWATHCH, April 7, 2012—On March 30, 2012, Kurdish youth groups demonstrated under their own, Kurdish-specific slogan for the first time. Until then, all of the youth groups had taken to the streets under a unified all-Syrian slogan. The decision was made in reaction to the conference of the Syrian opposition, which took place on March 27, 2012 in Istanbul [further information on the conference]. As early as September 2011, the youth groups had announced that they would demonstrate under their own slogan if the Facebook page »The Syrian Revolution 2011« continued to refuse to publish demonstration slogans in the Kurdish language.
