Yazda representatives meet Iraqi President Fuad Masum.

In a coordination with the Initiative for Yazidis Around The World, Yazda representatives had a meeting with the Iraqi President Fuad Masum to discuss possible solutions for the tragedy that Yazidi community is going through. Our representatives demanded the pledge for rights of every Ezidi to be equally treated, regardless of background, race, ethnicity, or religious status. The persecution of religious minorities in Iraq such as Yazidis, has intensified in recent months and has now reached very critical levels.

Although the Iraqi government has done so little to stop the persecution of Yazdis, who are systematically denied social and political rights; we still need to push them in order to be able to preserve the Yazidis rights and dignity.
