Al-Qamishli: Kurdish National Council demands the treatment of the Kurdish question in Geneva

KurdWatch, January 27, 2016—On January 15, 2016, members of the Kurdish National Council started collecting signatures for a petition to demand the treatment of the »Kurdish quesion« in the negotiations between the Syrian opposition and the Syrian regime in Geneva. The list is to be submitted to the general secretary of the United Nations, Ban Ki‑moon. The Democratic Union Party (PYD) tried to prevent the collection of signatures. Several lists were stolen and at least twelve activists collecting signatures in ʿAfrin were detained for hours by the Asayiş, the PYD's security service. According to the Kurdish National Council, up to now 625,400 signatures have been collected.
