Islamic State/daesh - Genocide

EDM number 444 in 2016-17, proposed by Alan Meale on 13/09/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Death, Ethnic groups, Middle East, Racial discrimination, Religion and faith communities, Religious discrimination and Terrorism.

That this House recalls that on 20 April 2016 the House voted 278-0 in favour of declaring the actions of Islamic State/DAESH as genocide; notes that since that time that organisation has continued its appalling and systematic extermination of minority groups across Syria and Iraq; is dismayed that since that vote the Government has taken no action to bring this matter before the United Nations Security Council with the intentions of authorising the International Criminal Court to take an official determination on those crimes under the terms of the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide; and calls on the Government to immediately set in motion this process so that lives can be saved and such practices stopped in the immediate future.

This motion has been signed by a total of 36 MPs.
