Al-Qamishli: PYD forces strike

KURDWATCH, September 6, 2012—On September 3, 2012, members of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) called on business people in downtown al‑Qamishli to keep their shops closed after the lunch hour. According to the PYD, the strike is directed against the plan to draft hundreds of young men into the military. The PYD succeeded in closing al‑Qamishli's central market. Even shop owners who do not sympathize with the PYD were coerced into taking part in the strike.
