ʿAfrin: PYD’s Asayiş attacks women’s rally

KURDWATCH, June 30, 2013—On June 30, 2013, several dozen female activists organized a rally in the center of ʿAfrin. They demanded more democracy and freedom and an end to the war. Members of the security service (Asayiş) of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) attacked the activists; a dozen of them were detained for several hours. Two people, Fayruz Diku and Piroz Diku, remained in custody until June 27. The rally was attacked even though it was not explicitly directed against the PYD.
