Join us today in Geneva for an important side-event on Turkey
Today, 26 June, the World Council of Arameans (Syriacs) („WCA“) will host a critical side-event at the United Nations Office in Geneva on the day of Turkey’s UPR outcome. The event is open for everyone and details are provided below.
In light of the 100 year remembrance of the Ottoman Genocide against the Armenian, Greek and Aramean (Syriac) populations, a new, unique and professional documentary called “Sayfo: A Forgotten Genocide” will premiere at the UN.
The film is a joint project by the Dutch Evangelical Broadcasting (EO) channel and the WCA and has been shown on National TV. Join us after Friday’s Turkey UPR to watch this highly acclaimed film to see and feel the struggle for survival by the Aramean people who, from 1915 until 2015, have suffered an ongoing genocide in Turkey, Syria and Iraq.
After the film, there will be room for discussion and questions regarding human rights, minority issues and religious freedom seen from the perspective of a disappearing people and culture in Turkey. Your presence will be appreciated and your voice is much needed!
