Dear el dispreciau,
“As they were capturing us, my eldest daughter was screaming. She was shouting at them, ‘I will never go with you!’ After they took her outside, they closed the door and she disappeared.”1
Naseema is one of the many people in Iraq mourning the loss of loved ones who have been enslaved by ISIS. As someone that has already signed the Walk Free petition calling for slavery in Iraq to be referred to the International Criminal Court, you know how desperate the situation for people like Naseema is.
That’s why we need to keep the world’s attention on what’s happening in Iraq. You may remember Walk Free activists delivering a petition of over 150,000 signatures -- including yours -- to members of the United Nations Security Council last year.
Two new members, Spain and New Zealand, have joined the United Nations Security Council in 2015, and Walk Free activists in these countries are preparing another petition delivery. To ensure this second delivery is even bigger, will you ask your friends and family to sign too? Simplyshare this Facebook post, or forward the email below.
Together, we can start to help secure justice for the thousands of people enslaved by ISIS in Iraq.
The whole Walk Free team
Across Iraq right now, many people are desperately awaiting news of their loved ones enslaved by ISIS. Over the past few months, the extremist group has captured an estimated 5,000 women and children, and forced them into sexual slavery and “marriages” to fighters.1
If, like me, you’re outraged by the shocking situation in Iraq, can you take a moment to add your name to the petition calling for this modern slavery to be referred to the International Criminal Court?
