On 14 of Feb 2004, a march will be held in Sulaimani in order to establish an independent "South Kurdistan" government.
The participants will demand :
+ unification of both of the Kurdistan governments (PUK and KDP) as soon as possible.
+ hold a free democratic general elections to establish parliament and a cabinet government.
+ condemn terror
Apparently they want the South Kurdistan government to be observed by the UN and the CPA for 10 years and afterwards they want to hold a referendum in the region to see if people still want to be independent or to be part of Iraq.
I think people have fed up with the slow progress in Kurdistan in 2003-2004. Now everything is linked to Baghdad, and since Baghdad is not functioning due to terror, etc etc everything has stopped...
