The symposium was attended by representatives of the Syrian Democratic Council, the Democratic Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria, the Executive Council of Raqqa Canton, political parties, tribal sheikhs and notables, and the Green Idlib Council.

The symposium began with a minute of silence in honor of the souls of the martyrs. Then, Mustafa Othman, a member of the Relations Office of the Syrian Democratic Council, delivered a speech in which he remembered the martyrs of the “Qamishlo uprising against the Syrian regime, which sees the dispersal of the components of the people as a basis for its survival. Therefore, revolt against it was necessary and in order for the Kurdish people to show the extent of the ability of peoples to determine their fate and strengthen and enhance the sense of belonging and national cohesion by rejecting racism and discrimination. This uprising broke the barrier of fear and terror and heralded the desired freedom.

He added, "Then the Syrian revolution began in 2011 to once again confirm the saying that if the people ever wanted to live, then fate must respond and hammer the final nail into the coffin of the crumbling Syrian regime, and let us say enough to injustice, and tyranny."

Then a TV show about the March 12 uprising was shown.

During the first axis, the co-chair of the Relations Office of the Syrian Democratic Council, Amal Dada, said: “The March 12 revolution was the result of efforts to spread discord and turned into a massacre and the killing of dozens of those present. The regime exploited the incident and sowed discord between the Arab and Kurdish components and used live ammunition against the demonstrators.”

She stressed that "the March 12 uprising has become a general revolution, and we are now reaping its fruits by achieving democratic transformation in Syria."

Then the second axis begins, entitled “The tasks expected from the Syrian revolution in the political circumstances and developments,” written by the co-chair of the Syrian Democratic Council, Laila Qaraman. She said, “20 years ago there was injustice against the Kurdish people who were deprived of their political and economic rights, and therefore the Baathist regime was exercising its pressure.” What happened at the March 12 Stadium was an attack on the Kurdish people, and therefore the goal was to deprive the Kurdish people of their most basic rights by the regime.”

She added, "That uprising was a spring for the Syrian revolution. The uprising broke the barrier of fear in order to achieve political change in Syria, and today we saw the unity that existed and the results that occurred despite the arrest of thousands of Kurdish people by the authorities of the ruling Baathist regime. Therefore, this uprising is a spring." The Syrian revolution and its motivation.

 

Then the door was opened for interventions to the participants, where the Deputy co-chairmanship of the Peoples’ Democratic Council, Hamdan Al-Abd, confirmed that the March 12 Revolution is a real revolution and the first building block to rid Syria of division, and it is the revolution of the oppressed peoples of the Kurds and Arabs.”

The co-chair of the Relations Office of the Syrian Democratic Council, Hassan Muhammad Ali, said, “The people began to demand change after the March 12 uprising, but the organized forces are the ones who achieve change, and the Syrian regime worked on several paths by turning Iraq into a quagmire of problems and maintaining its rule, so it requires us to work.” We must unite Syrians and not divide them by working to prepare for the future that we design for our regions, our families, and our children.”

The co-chair of the Green Idlib Council, Dima Al-Ali, stressed, “We are all convinced that the Syrian people are a strong people who have struggled since the Ottoman occupation of Syria until the revolution of the Syrian people came, who said: Enough with the policy of the criminal Baath Party, but as a result of external intervention, international bodies struck the Syrian people’s revolution from within.” And show him as outlaws and saboteurs, not revolutionaries.”

The co-chair of the Future Syria Party, Abdul Hamid Al-Mahbash, confirmed that “the common denominator between the March 12 Revolution and the Syrian revolution is the regime, the Syrian regime that has ruled Syria from 1970 until the present day, this regime, which follows a policy of divide and rule between the Syrian components, so what happened in the stadium March 12 was planned by the regime through the security services, and it is still working on this policy and creating strife, as evidenced by the events in Deir ez-Zor, but the wisdom of wise people foiled these plans that seek to strike our regions.”

The symposium ended with an answer to the interventions by the co-chair of the Syrian Democratic Council, Laila Qaraman, who said: “Holding seminars and lectures is very important and focusing on the role of the revolution is enough to achieve the future of our children, and the Syrian people and youth and women have an essential role.”

She stressed, "We, the Syrian Democratic Council, say that the achievement we achieved was thanks to the blood of thousands of martyrs, and we are continuing to create a better life for our people and our children and not be drawn into the strife and plans carried out by authoritarian regimes."
