Treatment Of Yazidi And Christian Minorities

EDM number 998 in 2015-16, proposed by Stephen Twigg on 22/01/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Ethnic groups, Middle East, Racial discrimination, Religion and faith communities and Religious discrimination.

That this House considers the treatment of the Yazidi and Assyrian Christian minorities in Daesh-held territory strongly indicates that genocide is occurring, bringing to mind previous atrocities committed against these communities; believes that now the Assyrians and Yazidis face their greatest existential threat ever, from Daesh; calls for the establishment by the UN of a Safe Haven and Protectorate for the ancient Yazidi and Assyrian nations, with its security guaranteed by an international treaty; supports moves to ensure that humanitarian efforts are efficient in supporting Yazidi communities; and condemns the forced enslavement, conversion, death or exile of the Yazidi community.

This motion has been signed by a total of 55 MPs.
