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

 On April 24, March for Justice at the Turkish Consulate in L.A.




 LOS ANGELES- The Armenian Genocide Committee, a broad-based, unified, coalition of the major religious, political, social, youth, and cultural organizations of the Armenian community of Southern California, has announced that on April 24 beginning at noon, the March for Justice will take place from Pan Pacific Park to the Turkish Consulate in Los Angeles.

"We call on all segments of the community to join us as we commemorate the 103rd anniversary of the Armenian Genocide and as we continue to voice our collective demands for justice for this immense crime against humanity," said AGC Chairman Karo Khanjian.

Continuing a more than four-decade tradition of bringing the demands of the Armenian community directly to the offices of the Turkish Consul General in Los Angeles, the AGC has been working diligently for the past year to plan the Rally for Justice which will take place immediately upon the conclusion of the March for Justice in front of the Turkish Consulate located at Wilshire Blvd. and Crescent Heights.

April 24 at 12 PM from Pan Pacific Park to the Turkish Consulate!
Erol Özkoray: " Mustafa Kamal based his Republican regime on the nationalist ideology of a Turkic race whereby Anatolia had to be "cleansed" of all "foreign" elements. Policies of ethnic, cultural, economic and social cleansing eliminated much of the Armenian, Assyrian and Greek groups albeit failed to do so with the Kurds - hence the Kurdish problem today."

Los Angeles, US – The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) needs to engage more with the Kurdish diaspora, especially youth, as Kurds abroad have historically played an important role in advocating internationally for Kurds in the region, the KRG’s representative to the United States said this week. 

Bayan Sami Abdul Rahman spoke at the University of Southern California (USC) on Tuesday at ‘Kurdistan in Perspective,’ organized by a young and impassioned graduate student, Evin Cheikosmon. 

The purpose of the series of talks was to educate students and the public about the KRG, their diplomatic mission, their challenges, achievements, and the future of Kurdistan, said Cheikosmon.

The main event was preceded by a roundtable discussion between Rahman, a number of USC professors of Public Diplomacy and International Relations, and the spokesperson for Olive Tree Initiative, a university-based organization that advocates conflict analysis and resolution through academic discourse, experiential education and leadership development.
