Al-Qamishli: Future Movement protests against PYD

KURDWATCH, April 27, 2013—Ongoing fighting between the Free Syrian  (FSA) and government troops in the week from April 13 to 19, 2013 resulted again in numerous dead and injured. On April 19, demonstrators throughout the country demanded the fall of the regime. They gathered under the common slogan »Iran and Hizbullah, you will be defeated along with Assad«. Supporters of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) only organized one demonstration in al‑Qamishli, under the motto »We will not forget the massacre of Shaykh Maqsud«. One demonstration also took place in each of the al‑Qamishli districts of al‑ʿAntariyah (organized by the Biratî, Rojava, Shaykh Maʿshuq and Martyr Farhad youth groups) and Munir Habib (organized by the Kurdish National Council). Moreover the Kurdish Future Movement in Syria under Rezan Bari Shaykhmus protested against the politics of the PYD. It accused the PYD of forcibly silencing those who hold different opinions. Two dissident demonstrations took place in ʿAmudah, organized by the Kurdish National Council and various youth groups. There were also two demonstrations in al‑Hasakah, one organized by the Kurdish National Council and the other by Arab groups. A demonstration organized by the Kurdish National Council took place in each of the cities of ad‑Darbasiyah, ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî), al‑Jawadiyah (Çil Axa), and al‑Qahtaniyah (Tirbesipî). The Kurdish National Council’s weekly demonstrations in al‑Malikiyah and al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê) took place on Saturday. There were no protests in ʿAfrin or Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê), nor in the Kurdish districts in Aleppo and Damascus.
