Christians in “ISIS/Daesh” controlled areas are being murdered, beheaded, crucified, beaten, extorted, abducted, and tortured.

Please join CitizenGO, MasLibres, In Defense of Christians, and other civil society groups in our Call-to-Action. We ask the UN to recognize these aggressions as acts of genocide and take immediate steps to preserve religious freedom in the Middle East and worldwide.

In just over a week, on Friday, April 29th, we will present this Call-to-Action at the United Nations during our #WeAreN2016 event in New York City. Please add your name to this call-to-action to tell the UN that you stand with Christians around the globe who are being murdered and pushed out of their homelands for their faith.

Christians have been victims of summary executions. They have been enslaved. Christian children have been forcibly recruited and transferred to other groups. Women and girls in particular have been subjected to forms of sexual violence such as rape, forced marriages, and human trafficking. Churches and religious and cultural sites have been vandalized. Christian towns, villages, and districts have been devastated. Christians have suffered the interruption of humanitarian aid supplies and the bombardment of their homes and places of residence.

In just the past two years, an estimated 5,000 Yazidis have been killed by the so-called “ISIS/Daesh”, while many others have been tortured or forcibly converted to Islam. In August 2014, more than 150,000 Christians fled the advance of Daesh over Mosul, Qaraqosh, and other villages in the Nineveh Plains. These are just a few of the many examples of genocidal acts by ISIS/Daesh that we lay out in further detail in the Call-to-Action, which can be read in its entirety by following the link below.

This systematic pattern of coordinated attacks, the magnitude and intensity of the crimes, and the resulting disappearance of Christian communities from Syria and Iraq are evidence that the persecution of Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities in the Middle East has reached the threshold of genocide and it should be recognized as such.

Sincerely,

Caroline Craddock and the entire CitizenGO team
