In this year, I had the honor of writing a piece on Nadia Murad for the TIME 100 list of the most influential people of the year april. Nadia is an associate for the cultural Kurdish minority Yazidi individuals, certainly one of thousands who was simply savagely enslaved by ISIS in Iraq, whom now fearlessly travels the entire world to increase understanding of the genocide.
After composing with hers, to highlight the efforts of Yazidi women and men to end genocide and sexual terrorism by ISIS about her, I reached out to meet Nadia and find ways our movements V-Day and One Billion Rising could be in solidarity.
Today could be the two-year anniversary associated with the Sinjar Massacre in north Iraq. On that date it’s estimated that 10,000 Yazidis had been enslaved or killed. When you look at the Chilcot that is recent inquiry Britain in the war in Iraq, cleverness reports reveal that ISIS “was created throughout the Iraq war of 2003 while the nation and its own organizations were dismantled and disenfranchised Iraqis had been resulted in sectarianism.”
