Al-Qamishli: Demonstrators remember Mishʿal at-Tammu

KURDWATCH, October 12, 2012—Nationwide protests on October 5, 2012, resulted again in numerous dead and injured. Throughout the country, demonstrators demanded the fall of the regime. In large parts of the country, protestors took to the streets under the slogan »We need weapons, not declarations, to protect our children from death«. Several Kurdish youth groups, including some from the ranks of the Kurdish National Council, used their slogans to remember Mishʿal at‑Tammu, who was assassinated one year ago [further information on the case]. Supporters of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) demonstrated under the motto »The Kurdish regions are taboo«. In al‑Qamishli, one demonstration took place in each of the districts of Qanat Suwais, al‑ʿAntariyah (organized by the Biratî, Rojava, Shaykh Maʿschuq, and Martyr Farhad youth groups), Kurnish (organized by supporters of the Kurdish Future Movement in Syria under Rezan Bari Shaykhmus, the Sewa youth group, and other independent youth groups), and Munir Habib (organized by the Kurdish National Council) as well as at the Qasimo mosque in the western district (organized by the PYD). In ʿAmudah there were three separate demonstrations, organized by the PYD, the Kurdish National Council, and various youth groups. There were also three demonstrations in al‑Hasakah. Two demonstrations, organized by the Kurdish National Council and the PYD, took place in ad‑Darbasiyah und al‑Qahtaniyah (Tirbesipî). One protest march (organized by the Kurdish National Council), took place in al‑Jawadiyah (Çil Axa), Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê), and ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî). As has been the case for several months, no Friday demonstrations took place in al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê) and al‑Malikiyah (Dêrik); demonstrations were held during the week. In ʿAfrin and in the mainly Kurdish districts of Aleppo and Damascus, there were no protests.
