Example text

These struggles culminated in 1963 with the seizure of power by the officer corps representing the Syrian Arab Ba’th Party. The Syrian Ba’th Party was based on a combination of principles: ideologies that sought socialist reform of the political system; ideologies that sought an end to foreign imperialist powers interfering within Syria; and nationalist principles seeking the unification of Arab states. 20 Over time the Ba’th Party became disproportionately dominated by the ‘Alawi. 21 However, the Sunni urban elite and middle classes did not accept defeat immediately, providing opposition to the Ba’th Party’s rise to power.

The opposition occurred due to the state of the Syrian economy, the 1976 invasion of Lebanon by Syrian forces and the increasing belief that the Ba’th Party was a predominantly ‘Alawi faction. Marxists, communists, professionals and human rights activists began to contest Ba’th Party rule, as did the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood. The Ba’th regime worked to suppress uprisings and increasingly targeted the Muslim Brotherhood, passing Law No. 49 on 7 July 1980, according to which mere membership of the Muslim Brotherhood warranted a death sentence.

On 13 March 2004, funerals were held for those killed the previous day. Thousands of people attended, chanting political slogans and carrying Kurdish flags and pictures of Kurdish leaders to express their anger at what had occurred. Clashes broke out between these demonstrators and the police who again opened fire, killing and injuring more people and serving only to further increase people’s agitation; this was then expressed by the vandalizing of buildings. People injured during these clashes were initially taken to several public and private hospitals in Qamishli for treatment, but were later transferred under police escort and held under intensive guard in the National Hospital.
