An Open Letter to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on Repression in Iranian Kurdistan

A Joint Letter to Denounce Iran's Crackdown and to Save the Lives of Thousands of Detainees


To: Dr. Michelle Bachelet Jeria

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights

Palais Wilson, United Nations; the Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights
Geneva, Switzerland

Dear High Commissioner,

Over the last week you like many of us you have recollected scattered scenes of heinous crimes against protesters in Iran and wondered about the Orwellian nightmare that has reined over Iran under the Islamic Republic of Iran. As the result of "the political panic" that the ISI has felt, it shutdown Internet and stifled every form of communication within and across Iranian communities to prevent any depictions and coverage of its acts of terrorism so that to nip in the bud the legitimate protests against the sudden hike in fuel cost. Using its terror network and propaganda inside the country, it managed to repress the digital coverage of the protests.

The Demise of the American Empire and The Kurds

Los Angeles, USA November 4th, 2019 

Recent American troops pull out of Syrian Kurdish region (Rojava) by an order from President Trump and granting green light to Turkey to send in Turkish troops to slaughter the Kurdish population is illegal, immoral and inhumane. It is back stabbing and betrayal of the most reliable ally by the United States.

President Trumps knew exactly what the consequences would be, mass killing of Kurdish civilians and the destruction of Rojava's infrastructure, creation of refugees by hundreds of thousands (so far 275,000 refugees and hundreds dead), a new generation of orphans, resurgence of ISIS, more than 800 ISIS members have escaped prisons held by Kurds and opened by Turkish bombing. Turkish invasion can engulf the region in an endless and unpredictable war. 

When asked Donald Trump why a sudden pull out American troops and leaving the Kurdish people without protection, the most reliable American and Western ally, his response was: "Well they (Kurds) didn't help us in Normandy, they didn't help the United States in WWII"... this statement indicates the President's lack of understanding of politics, geography and history.

Kurds vs. CAIR: Turkish Cash Prompts Protests at Islamist Group’s LA Banquet


 dave_swindle.jpgBY DAVID SWINDLE

NOVEMBER 20, 2019

Halloween ended two days prior, but on the evening of November 2, 2019, plenty of monsters and heroes walked about the Anaheim Hilton, just across the street from Disneyland. Two big events bumped up against each other, each constructed on fantasy worlds and drawing distinctly-attired attendees. But the real world intruded upon their fantasy in the form of pro-freedom protesters.

The Anaheim convention center was hosting "BlizzCon," celebrating computer game company Blizzard Entertainment, responsible for such titles as World of Warcraft and Starcraft. Thus, numerous individuals were fully decked out in "cosplay" attire, from ogres and elves to sorceresses and space soldiers.

In clothes of a different sort were the event's protesters: pro-Hong Kong demonstrators, some sporting Winnie the Pooh outfits, a satisfying jab at China's authoritarian leader Xi Jinping, who has been savagely mocked for resembling the lovable bear with a very little brain. (Blizzard has chosen the predictably corporate and wrong side in the Hong Kong vs. China question.)

What you can do about the terrible news and what’s happening to Kurds

What you can do about the terrible news andwhat's happening to Kurds 

CKlara Moradin
A lot of my friends have been asking what they can do about the terrible news they
are hearing and what's happening to Kurds. Some of you have outrage fatigue, but please don't just shrug and look away.
If you're US based, here are just a few things you can do:
-Call/write/email your representatives and in the strongest terms condemn Trump's foreign policy. Tweet at them and urge them to make public statements about the issue BUT more importantly urge a No Fly Zone over Rojava. Keep doing this. Ask others to join you.
-DIVEST Turkey! Stop flying Turkish Airlines, stop buying Turkish products, stop supporting companies that have ties to Turkey
-This is not for everyone, but if you have capacity, connect with someone in your local Kurdish community and ask if they are holding a protest in front of the Turkish Consulate and join them
