Al-Qamishli: New youth organization founded

KURDWATCH, November 21, 2013—At a press conference on October 21, 2013, activists announced the founding of the National Organization of Kurdish Youth, a coalition of the Union of Cooperation of Kurdish Youth and several smaller Kurdish youth organizations. To the question of whether this was a new party, founding member Munzir Iskan told KurdWatch: »No, we are not a party, but an organization with a clear political line. Moreover, we want to partake in important political decisions alongside the Kurdish parties.« Sarbaz Farman, a founding member of the Union of the Cooperation of Kurdish Youth, explained: »The majority of our members were no longer active. The rest have joined the new organization. I myself do not believe that a new youth organization can achieve anything. The PYD has too much power.«
