Important Update: First step has been taken…
On November 28, less than a week after the campaign launch, Labor MP Chris Hayes and Coalition MP Keven Andrews introduced a motion to recognise the genocide in Syria and Iraq and to call for the perpetrators to be brought to justice.
This has been an important first step towards justice for persecuted Christians, Yazidis and Muslim minorities.
The campaign is gathering momentum but is far from over.
The next step is for the Parliament to vote in favour of this important motion.

As your petitioning grows, so does the pressure on the Parliament to Stop the Genocide.
Since mid-2014, ISIS has been carrying out a terror campaign against Christians, Yazidis, Shias, and other religious minorities in Iraq and Syria – including church leaders being assassinated, mass murders, torture, systematic rape, and sexual enslavement.
But it’s critical for the Parliament to recognise the attacks on religious minorities in Iraq and Syria as ‘genocide’ – so as to add pressure on the international community to protect the victims of terror, and the perpetrators can be held to account.
With your help our collective voice will be heard by our politicians.
Those suffering persecution at the hands of ISIS are crying out for the international community to recognise what is happening to them and provide relief.
That is why your support for the Stop the Genocide campaign is so important. Stand up for those without a voice by completing the petition today.
