Al-Jawadiyah: Kurdish National Council protests against PYD’s education policy

KurdWatch, November 12, 2015—On November 7, 2015, the Kurdish National Council conducted a demonstration in al‑Jawadiyah (Çil Axa) against the education policy of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) [further information]. Approximately one thousand people took part in the event. Employees of the Asayiş, the PYD’s security service, blocked the demonstrators’ path, and for a moment it seemed as though the situation might escalate. However, several demonstration participants called for everyone to keep calm and turn around; the protest march then turned back. During the demonstration, employees of the Asayiş searched numerous people and confiscated their cell phones.
