Calling For Academic Signatures To Recognize The Simele Massacre as Genocide & Its Sites as Protected Places of Remembrance

On August 7, Assyrian Genocide Remembrance Day, The Assyrian Studies Association jointly partnered with other 35 fellow Assyrian community organizations & allies to sign a letter calling on the Iraqi authorities to recognize the Simele Massacre of 1933. You can read the letter by clicking on the icon to the right.

 

Right now, The Assyrian Studies Association is calling for academics to add their voices demanding  a professional academic and impartial investigation into the current situation of the material remains of the Simele Massacre site. Show your support by adding your name to the letter.

 

This letter will be sent to all relevant authorities in Iraq and the KRG within Iraq as well as academic institutions such as UNESCO and other Non-Governmental Organizations on October 1, 2020. To view the signatories, see below.
