Since mid-2014, ISIS has been conducting a well-documented campaign of terror across Syria and Iraq against religious minority groups such as Christians, Yazidis, and Shias.
While military progress is made against ISIS in places like Mosul, we want the Australian Parliament to recognise the ISIS attacks on Christians, Yazidis, and other ethnic and religious minorities in Iraq and Syria as genocide.
With your help, the Stop the Genocide campaign will change this.
The UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria concluded that ISIS has committed the crime of genocide. The UN Human Rights Council has also condemned the systematic violations and abuses of human rights and international humanitarian law committed by the so-called “Islamic State”.
The US Congress, US State Department, European Parliament, Council of Europe, UK House of Commons and the French Foreign Minister have all declared that ISIS/ISIL/Daesh or “so-called Islamic State” has committed genocide.
However, the Australian Parliament and the UN Security Council are yet to do so.
That’s why your support for the Stop the Genocide campaign is so important. Stand up for those without a voice by completing the petition form today:
