Sunday, September 24: Iraqi Kurdistan – A Report-back

In September, PASMC again calls upon CODEPINK for its experience and work leading to information and action.

This past May, Nancy Mancias of the activist organization joined a small delegation on an educational tour of northern Iraq’s Kurdish region. The tour participants met with Kurdish women, LGBTQ and peace organizations, academics, and villagers affected by oil company Dana Gas as well as Turkey’s cross-border bombings.

On Sunday, September 24, Nancy will share what she learned about the various players in this narrative: the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK), internally displaced Iraqis, the Yazidis, and Chaldean Christians – all of whom reside in Iraqi Kurdistan. The evening begins at 7 PM At the Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo, 300 E. Santa Inez Avenue (at Ellsworth) in San Mateo.

Admission is free, contributions welcome. The UUSM is wheelchair accessible.
