There were also some more videos of Newroz gatherings in Syria, as I had in my last post with Newroz background and videos. These are both from Qamishlo, in the northeast of Syria. Kurdish is spoken freely and Kurdish flags are out in force.

I can not place the location of this last video, but it appears to be from a different angle in Qamishlo from the first videos.

Efrin also held celebrations, though it had significant political organization from PKK supporters it would appear, more so than Qamishlo. Syrian Kurds do have a legacy with PKK, on account of PKK operating out of Syria in the 1990s.
