  A Magical Night of Kurdish Music with renowned Naser Razazi
Dr. Amir Sharifi
January 03, 2015 
Dear Kurdish Community members in the southern California,  

You are invited to a magical night of Kurdish music with the renowned Kurdish vocalist Naser Razazi accompanied by Fouad. You will experience share, and cherish  unique memories  as Razazi will be singing familiar tunes;  I am sure we will will be whispering along as he sings our favorite songs and dancing to his lyrics of love, songs of freedom, and exaltation of beauty.

 Now that the back flag of Islamist terrorism and its war has brought an endless trail of destruction, threatening our cultural heritage and musical traditions, that of  Izidis,  in particular, more than anytime else we should celebrate our musical traditions and support our artists, those who like Razazi have  kept our culture alive and robust. The event promises to be another  musical journey  that would rekindle our passion for what we love in our hearts.

Press Release

Rally in Los Angeles: International Solidarity day with Kobani

 November 1st, 2014 

kobane_110114_01.jpgWe members of the Kurdish American Education Society, Human Rights Advocacy Group, and Kurdish Community of Southern California, in Los Angeles join hundreds of thousands of people, United Nations agencies and prominent intellectuals such as Noam Chomsky and Archbishop Desmond Tutu in observing the International Day of Solidarity with the defenders of the besieged city of Kobani. From Los Angeles and Washington to London and Kurdistan, we come together to support the heroic defenders of Kobani. The legendary city has indeed become the emblem of unprecedented resistance against one of the darkest and tyrannical forces in human history. The city has been the constant target of ISIS offensives for six weeks. Although the defenders of the city are both outnumbered and outgunned, women and men old and young have stood steadfast against the ferocious terrorism of ISIS. They are incessantly being bombarded with heavy artillery; many parts of the city have been demolished and destroyed as evidenced by the rising plumes of smoke, which darken the horizon of the city.

Over 200000 people from Kobani and surrounding villages have been displaced and live in deplorable conditions in various camps in Turkey. The US coalition led strikes have not been enough to effectively halt the Islamic state’s advances.  Turkey in showing its ideological affinity with and support for ISIS continues to block the flow of help and volunteers to the city.  Under mounting international pressure the Turkish government is now hypocritically allowing a limited number of Peshmerge into the area as it continues to threaten the fragile peace process.

After more than two and a half years of war, Syria is destroyed by the agony of bombs. The revolution, borned with democracy and freedom’s aims, has slowly turned into an islamist war for the land’s control. The Free Syrian Army has crumbled and, day after day, the jihadist groups are taking more and more power.

In this apocalyptic scenario, the Syrian Kurdistan raises its voice and carries out its dreams of freedom. After years of internal strife against Assad’s government, the Kurds, now taking advantage of the civil war, are preparing themselves for the enactment of a new state, the Rojava or Syrian Kurdistan.

Hunger Strike in Washington, DC (October 27th through 31st) 

"Save Yezidi & Christian Women and Girls from ISIS" 


US Kurds Stage Hunger Strike and Mock Sex Slave Auction in front of the White House

Kurdish-Americans urge action to rescue Yezidi and Christian women held captive by IS in Iraq and Syria!

Three Kurdish Americans, Goran Slemani, Sarkan Kurdee, and Chato J Fado, and friends of Kurd, Amy Howard and Evin Phoenix, have initiated a five-day hunger strike in front of the White House between October 27th and 31st. The event is endorsed by theKurdish National Congress of North America and sponsored by Kurdish Human Rights Watch (KHRW).

Thousands of innocent Yezidis, Christians and other ethnic and religious minorities have been abducted by Islamic State (IS) terrorists in Iraq and Syria. According to Kurdish Human Rights Watch, IS has systematically abducted thousands of men, women, and children and is holding them captive at makeshift detention centers in Iraq and Syria. Most of the girls and women stolen have been forced into marriage and sexual slavery, and countless more face daily rape and trauma. All have been forced into religious conversion.

US Kurds are staging a hunger strike next week from Monday, October 27 at 10:00am until Friday, October 31 at 6:00pm in an effort to raise awareness about this dire situation and to increase pressure on the US and others to step up efforts to retrieve these women and girls quickly and safely. A mock IS sex slave auction will be held from 12:00-3:00pm on Friday, October 31st to further illustrate the urgency of the situation and desperation of the captives.
Kurdish National Congress of North America and Kurdish Human Rights Watch, hunger strike organizers and members, along with an unprecedented coalition of Kurdish, Kurdish-American, and interfaith organizations, stand together in condemnation of these abductions and call on the US and coalition partners to take immediate action to locate and rescue these innocent women and girls before it is too late.
