Al-Qamishli: PYD demonstrates in support of its education policy

KurdWatch, November 19, 2015—On November 12, 2015, the Democratic Union Party (PYD) conducted a demonstration in al‑Qamishli. Participants carried signs expressing their support for the PYD’s education policy. They also opposed the recent PYD‑critical demonstrations organized by the Kurdish National Council in several places [further information]. One sign glorifying Abdullah Öcalan, the imprisoned chairman of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), read: »A thousand times yes to the curriculum and to the philosophy and ideology of Leader Apo.« Another sign read: »Shame on the Kurdish National Council.« Elementary school children, some of them in military uniform, led the protest march.
