Shengal youth march against Hewler-Baghdad agreement

Protests against the agreement on the future of the Yazidi land continue increasingly.

The Yazidi Youth Movement in Shengal (Sinjar) staged a march in protest at the agreement made between the Central Iraqi government and Southern Kurdistan Regional Government on the future of the Yazidi town.

During the protest march from Mam Zekî Square to Shengal District Governor’s Office Friday afternoon, members of the Yazidi Youth Movement expressed their rejection of the agreement and any decision outside of the will of Shengal.

The crowd chanted slogans commending Kurdish people’s leader Abdullah Öcalan and the resistance of Shengal and self-defense units.
