Al-Qamishli: PYD organizes central rally of its supporters

KURDWATCH, May 3, 2012—Nationwide protests on April 27, 2012 resulted again in numerous dead and injured. Throughout the country, demonstrators demanded the fall of the regime. Protests in the Kurdish regions this week again took place under two slogans: the all-Syrian slogan was »God's command has been issued, do not accelerate it!«. In contrast, activists from the ranks of the Kurdish National Council (formerly the Kurdish Patriotic Conference), as well as supporters of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) took to the streets under the slogan »Federalism and the protection of the people«. There were a total of five demonstrations in al‑Qamishli, in the districts of al‑Hilaliyah, al‑ʿAntariyah, Qudurbak, and Qanat Suwais, as well as in the majority Arab district of Tay. In addition, the PYD mobilized its supporters from all of the Kurdish regions in one central demonstration in which several thousand people took part. In ʿAmudah there were three separate demonstrations, organized by the Democratic Union Party (PYD), the Kurdish National Council, and various youth groups, including Avahî. In al‑Hasakah, four demonstrations took place; one central protest march took place in each of the cities of al‑Malikiyah (Dêrik), al‑Qahtaniyah (Tirbesipî), al‑Jawadiyah (Çil Axa), al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê), Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê), ad‑Darbasiyah, ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî), as well as in the majority Kurdish district of Shaykh Maqsud in Aleppo.
