Al-Qamishli: Kurdish National Council and youth groups continue to organize demonstrations

KURDWATCH, May 4, 2013—Ongoing fighting between the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and government troops in the week from April 20 to 26, 2013 resulted again in numerous dead and injured. On April 26, demonstrators throughout the country demanded the fall of the regime. They gathered under the common slogan »Protection of the majority«. Supporters of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) did not organize any demonstrations, but rather funeral processions in ʿAmudah and ad‑Darbasiyah for the burials of slain YPG [further information] and PKK fighters. In al‑Qamishli, one demonstration took place in each of the districts of al‑ʿAntariyah (organized by various youth groups) and Munir Habib (organized by the Kurdish National Council). Two dissident demonstrations took place in ʿAmudah, organized by the Kurdish National Council and various youth groups, including Avahî. There were also two demonstrations in al‑Hasakah, one organized by the Kurdish National Council, the other by Arab groups. The Kurdish National Council organized one demonstration 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 mainly Kurdish districts of Aleppo and Damascus.
