ʿAmudah/al-Qamishli: Demonstrations against the PYD

KURDWATCH, June 29, 2013—Ongoing fighting between the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and government troops in the week from June 15 to June 21, 2013 resulted again in numerous dead and injured. On June 21, demonstrators throughout the country renewed their demand for the fall of the regime. They gathered under the common slogan »Support Damascus with deeds, not words«. Supporters of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) only organized one demonstration in ʿAmudah; they protested against FSA attacks on the positions of the PYD’s People’s Defense Units (YPG) in ʿAfrin. 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). The protests were directed against PYD attacks on activists. In ʿAmudah, activists supported by the Kurdish National Council also protested against the PYD [further information]. In addition, the Kurdish National Council organized demonstrations in ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî) and ad‑Darbasiyah; here, too, the actions of the PYD were criticized. There were no protests in al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê), al‑Jawadiyah (Çil Axa), al‑Qahtaniyah (Tirbesipî), or ʿAfrin, nor in the Kurdish districts of Aleppo and Damascus.
