Meeting details

LIBG forum on Kurdistan
(Monday, March 11, 2013)

Meeting type:Public Meeting
Date:Monday, March 11, 2013
Time:7.30pm - 9.00pm
Description:

Liberal International British Group forum on Kurdistan


 


Kurdistan is likened to the largest nation without a state. 2013 marks an unusual coincidence of anniversaries: the 10th anniversary of the intervention in Iraq, the 25th anniversary of the Anfal and the killing of 5,000 innocent civilians by chemical weapons in Halabja, and the 30th anniversary of the killing of the Barzanis. It is estimated that 182,000 innocent civilians were killed, thousand of villages were destroyed, and hundreds of thousands of Kurds were displaced. Securing international recognition of the Kurdish genocide is important for many reasons including facilitating justice, but also to help prevent future atrocities, not only in Iraqi Kurdistan but also further afield.


 


 


Speakers:


 


Representative of the Kurdistan Regional Government in the UK


Jonathan Fryer, writer and broadcaster on the Middle East and former chair of LIBG.


 


 


 A cash bar will be available.
