Event: Meeting on genocide planned in London

Armenian, Assyrian and Kurdish groups will hold a panel on genocide on July 8 in London, according to Kurdish Media. The collaboration among these three groups, each of which has been the target of genocide throughout history, has led to three new motions in the UK Parliament, Kurdish Media reports. These include Genocide against the Assyrian and Armenian People, recognizing atrocities committed between 1915 and 1923 in Turkey as genocide; Genocide against the Kurdish People, regarding the Anfal Campaign; and Imperial War Museum Genocide Exhibition, welcoming an exhibition at the museum on Anfal, and urging the Government to declare as an act of genocide Saddam Hussein’s killing of the Kurdish people.

Meeting details are as follows.
Where: Room P of Portcullis House (on Victoria Embankment/Bridge Street corner next to Westminster tube station, facing Parliament)
When: 2.00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 8, 2008
Speakers include Kurdish historian Prof Kamal Mazhar Ahmad and Kurdish expert and writer Dr Rebwar Fatah.
