  • Kurdish community raises funds for refugees and shows solidarity with all sects and cultures

    FRI, 24 OCT 2014 17:15


    London, UK (www.uk.krg.org) - This month, people of Kurdistan and Iraq's various faiths and ethnicities ‎came together at a London church to show solidarity and unity in the face of the attacks by the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham, while a charity hosted an evening of entertainment and serious discussion ‎to raise money for refugees and displaced families.

     The Kurdistan Regional Government UK Representation contributed to the organising and publicising of both events‎. Bayan Sami Abdul Rahman, the ‎KRG High Representative to the UK, said, 'Our office is at the service of the Kurdish community and is ready to help in any way to ease the plight of refugees and displaced families. Our peshmerga are not only at the front line in the global battle against ISIS, our region is also hosting close to 1.4million refugees and displaced people. I'm pleased that the Kurdish diaspora has been so active and patriotic in trying to help.'

  • The cold curtain of winter: impending disaster in Kurdistan

    The children seemed resilient and cheerful, demanding politely that they be photographed. For their sake, I hope that their return home will come sooner rather than later but that seems improbable about 50 miles separate this city, Erbil, from the modern and well-armed incarnation of fascism, the so-called Islamic State, which is battering Kobane into submission in Syria.

    But the main peril at this moment for the Kurdistan region in Iraq, which the foreign secretary just visited, is that it is coping with the influx of well over a million refugees from Syria and internally displaced people from the south and the west of Iraq. And all this without Baghdad, the nominal capital of a nominal federation, lifting a finger to help and worse still denying them their budget for nearly a year.

  • A voice for Kurdistan

    It s a very difficult thing, to ask a country to go to war, Bayan SamiAbdul Rahman said wearily when we met in her London office in September. As high representative of the Kurdistan regional government (KRG) to the UK, she had been lobbying for greater intervention against Islamic State/Isis militants in Iraq for months.
