In the United Kingdom, a petition has been launched to recognize the Kurds as “people” at the United Nations. With an estimated 35 to 45 million people, the Kurds are one of the larger peoples in the world without an own state. It is high time to grant the Kurds an identity and voice on the international forum.
The initiative for this petition was taken by a group of human rights experts at the UN, lawyers specialized in international law and university graduates.
Obviously, the Kurdish Institute supports this initiative and calls on everyone to sign. Please find below a link to the petition.
