FYF Statement: Seven-Year Commemoration of the Yezidi Genocide 3 August 2021

Every year on August 3rd the Yezidi community mourns those we have lost, remembers those who are missing, and seeks solutions for a brighter future. The Free Yezidi Foundation highlights the following issues this year in consideration of community-wide recovery and growth. These topics should be addressed as Yezidi, Iraqi, and international stakeholders consider the well-being and the next steps for our vulnerable community. Cosmetic solutions will not resolve long-standing challenges facing our people. Serious action is required if Yezidi families are to live safely in Iraq. This year FYF is highlighting the following six subjects: - Bring back Our Women and Girls! - Just Implementation of the Sinjar Agreement - Equal Opportunity for Yezidis - The Yezidi Survivors' Law - Better Conditions for IDPs - Justice & Accountability You can access our full statement by clicking here. Finally, a reminder that you can still register to join FYF's 2-3 August virtual commemoration event. Registration is below and panel details are available on the FYF website.
