Qamishli, SyriaــDozens of supporters of The Kurdish Youth Movement in Syria (TCK) demonstrated in the city of Qamishlo/al-Qamishli on Sunday, demanding release of its member in the monitoring committee, Civan Ali, who, according to the movement, was arrested two weeks ago in the city of Girke Lege / Ma’bada by the “Asayish” −the security wing of the Democratic Union Party (PYD). 

The demonstrators carried banners condemning what they described the “arbitrary” arrests.

The demonstrators also stressed their support to the National Conference of Kurdistan (most probably will be held in Erbil between 16th-18th of September), in an effort to avoid any disorder during the demonstration.

During the demonstration, the TCK’s supporters condemned the continuous attacks by Jabhat al-Nusra and other al-Qaeda affiliated groups against the Kurdish people and their areas in Syria, and called for unifying the efforts within the Kurdish political movement “in this sensitive phase”. 

The rally started from the Street of Munir Habib in Qamishlo/al-Qamishli, and ended without any friction between the (PYD) Asayish and demonstrators.

The Kurdish Youth Movement (TCK) identifies itself as “an independent youth organization founded to defend the demands of the Kurdish people in Syria”. Its ideological framework is said to be derived from the “believe in the Kurdish legitimate rights according to the international conventions”.

The TCK considers itself a complementary to the role of political parties, in the stage of disintegration between the political parties and the Kurdish youth.
