Al-Qamishli: Kurdish Natoinal Council protests against migration

KURDWATCH, September 8, 2015—On September 5, 2015, the Kurdish National Council’s local committees held rallies in front of their offices in several cities. Demonstrations were held in cities such as al‑Qamishli, ʿAmudah, ad‑Darbasiyah, al‑Jawadiyah (Çil Axa), al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê), and Tall Tamr. As the Kurdish National Council had resolved on August 29 [further information], participants protested against migration from the Kurdish regions. Several signs called for an end to forced recruiting and arbitrary kidnappings; however, those responsible—the Democratic Union Party (PYD), its People’s Defense Units (YPG), and its security service (Asayiş)—were not mentioned by name. The number of demonstrators ranged from nearly forty in Tall Tamr to approximately two hundred in al–Qamishli.
