On the Third Anniversary of the Massacre at Sinjar the Global Justice Center Calls for Justice for the Yazidi Genocide

Today, on the three year Anniversary of Sinjar, GJC is raising awareness on the need for action and justice:

  • In the New York Times, read Akila Radhakrishnan's letter to the editor calling for the international community to stop ignoring the plight of the Yazidi.
     
  • In Pass Blue, read Barbara Crossette's interview with Janet Benshoof on building a case for prosecuting ISIS fighters. 
     
  • In the Fair Observer, read Liz Olson's piece on the genocide against the Yazidi that is still ongoing, and could still be successful.
     
  • GJC and the Bar Human Rights Committee of England & Wales sent a brief to the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court urging them to open a preliminary examination into genocide and other crimes committed by foreign fighters from ISIS.
     
  • GJC recently convened a Brain Trust of international law and genocide experts to discuss reconciling international laws on genocide and counter-terrorism. You can read the outcome document for the Brain Trust here.
     
  • Listen to GJC's podcasts with Sareta Ashraph and Stephen Rapp on the genocide of the Yazidi and the avenues for justice.
