AMMAN - Syria's Kurds will continue a
nonviolent struggle for civic rights and democracy to replace
autocratic rule despite a decree to grant disenfranchised Kurds
citizenship, Kurdish leader Habib Ibrahim said on Thursday.
"Our cause is democracy for the whole of Syria. Citizenship
is the right of every Syrian. It is not a favor. It is not the
right of anyone to grant," Ibrahim, who heads the Democratic
Unity Kurdish Party, told Reuters.
