University of Sulaimany Students Go on Strike

Today the students at the University of Sulaimany decided to go on strike and refused to attend their classes until the KRG (Kurdistan Regional Government) meets their demands. The head of the student body at the University of Sulaimany, Erifan Soliay in an interview with Awena newspaper said, “Today we have decided not to attend our classes and shall continue until the government meets our demands”. The students explained that because they (KRG) still continue to use violence against the protesters and have killed and injured more innocent people; they still have not come to listen to the demands of the protesters and people in our city and elsewhere in Kurdistan—we have decided to go on strike until the parties responsible come to meet our demands. The students explained that they are also in support of the return of Kirkuk and other disputed areas to Kurdistan Region.
