Al-Maʿbada: Asayiş dissolves solidarity rally for protesters in Iran

KURDWATCH, May 15, 2015—On May 9, 2015, employees of the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), dissolved a rally in al‑Maʿbada (Girkê Legê). The rally was organized by the Kurdistan Women’s Union, which has close ties to the Kurdistan Democratic Party – Syria (PDK‑S). The Asayiş confiscated numerous cell phones belonging to participants. In addition, two journalists for the Iraqi-Kurdish television station Rûdaw were kidnapped. They were released a few hours later; their cameras were destroyed before being returned to them. The rally was planned as an event in solidarity with the dissident demonstrations in the Kurdish regions of Iran, which have been going on for several days. The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) is accused of intentionally radicalizing the protests in Iran in order to give the regime an excuse to quickly crush the protests.
