Demo for Shengal in Hanover

Kurds and their friends around the globe are expressing their rejection of the agreement between Hewler and Baghdad on the land of the Yazidi people, Shengal.

A demonstration was held in the German city of Hanover in protest at the agreement concluded between the governments of Hewler (Erbil) and Baghdad on the future of the Shengal town, the ancestral land of the Yazidi people in Southern Kurdistan (Northern Iraq).

The protest march was followed by a rally which was participated by the Kurds and their friends living in and around the Hanover city.

A speech in the name of NAV-YEK (Union of Yazidi Associations in Germany) described the agreement as a new betrayal in Shengal and warned that it would lead to further massacres.
