Twenty-six Kurdish demonstrators arrested in Syria

during ten minute silent protest about human rights abuses.


Information from MAF - Human Rights Organisation in Syria and Foad Aleko- Secretary of Kurdish Yekiti Party in Syria- announced today, 28.2.2009 that at 11am, Kurds came out onto the streets of al-Jazeera in the Kurdish region of Syria to hold a silent ten minute demonstration in the street, to protest about the legislation Decree 49 that further removes their basic human rights.

Decree 49 prevents Kurds from buying, selling, renting and building property and is having a profound effect on their community. It is seen as another weapon of the Syrian authorities in their attempts to ethnically cleanse Kurds from the country.

The Kurdish Yekiti Party in Syria asks the Governments in European countries to recognise that Kurds in Syria are denied their basic rights. It is not enough to merely mention the human rights abuses in discussions with Syria because that changes nothing. We request that you require the Syrian Government to demonstrate real change before further opening the doors of Europe.
