Join Nadia in calling on the Iraqi Government to prosecute the genocide against the Yazidi peopleOn 3rd August 2014, the so-called Islamic State waged an attack on the Yazidi people in Sinjar, Iraq, killing more than 3,000 civilians and enslaving 5,000-7,000 more, mostly women and children.Current estimates suggest 3,200 Yazidis remain in ISIS captivity, including Yazidi women who are being used for sexual slavery.

This is genocide. It’s not just us saying it – the European Parliament officially recognised it last month.

Led by Nadia, the surviving Yazidi community has requested that the International Criminal Court take on this case – and they’re asking for our help.
