In 1957, the Kurdish Democratic Party of Syria (KDPS) was founded by a broad coalition of prominent Kurdish intellectuals calling for recognition of Kurdish national rights and an end to the marginalization of Kurds in the administration.

Within days the authorities arrested two members of the party's political bureau, Marwan Othman and Hassan Saleh, on charges of "inciting religious and ethnic discord." In June 2003, Yakiti organized a demonstration by 200 Kurdish children and their parents in front of the UNICEF building in Damascus.
