Al-Qamishli: Rally commemorates persecuted journalists

KURDWATCH, May 7, 2015—On May 3, 2015, approximately fifteen activists from the politically independent Brotherhood Center for Democracy and Civil Society held a rally in al‑Qamishli. Most of the participants were women. They commemorated journalists who are being held or have been killed by the Syrian regime and by the Islamic State (IS). Since April 30, pictures of journalists who were captured and killed have been posted or distributed in the form of a flyer in several Kurdish cities. An activist told KurdWatch that journalists persecuted by the Democratic Union Party (PYD) were not mentioned at the rally for fear of repercussions.
