Al-Qamishli: Following months of silence, activists again organize demonstration

KURDWATCH, October 19, 2013—On September 27, 2013, two dozen activists participated in a demonstration in the district of al‑ʿAntariyah in al‑Qamishli. Their banners were directed against »attacks by terrorist groups« and called for »freedom and federalism« in the Kurdish regions. The demonstration, which was organized by the general committee of the Kurdish Youth, and the independent Kurdish youth movement, both member organization of the Kurdish National Council, was the first demonstration by activists since July 20, 2013. Due to the attacks by the Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) People’s Defense Units (YPG) on activists and members of other parties at the end of June 2013 in ʿAmudah [further information], independent activists had suspended their dissident demonstrations.
