KHRP Chief Executive and panel at EUTCC Conference
The EU-Turkey Civic Commission’s (EUTCC) Sixth International Conference on the EU, Turkey and the Kurds has concluded at the European Parliament in Brussels. 

Because of the overseas travel ban imposed against members of the now defunct pro-Kurdish Demokratik Toplum Partisi (Democratic Society Party, DTP), the third and final session of the conference— entitled 'Possible Roadmap for the Kurdish Resolution and Role of the EU’— was opened with a written message that was read out by EUTCC board member Mr. Hans Branscheidt, on behalf of Diyarbakir Mayor, Osman Baydemir. Baydemir vowed that despite the recent arrests and widespread detention of mayors in the south-east of Turkey, the non-violent civilian struggle for an honourable peace will continue and affirmed that peace is not only possible, but that it will prevail.

KHRP-EFA Seminar at European Parliament on Impact of Cross-Border Operations in Northern Iraq

On 27 January 2010, KHRP and the Greens–European Free Alliance (EFA) party co-organised a seminar at the European Parliament in Brussels on the Environmental and Humanitarian Impact of Cross-Border Military Operations in Northern Iraq. The seminar served as an important opportunity to discuss the civilian and environmental impact of the frequent shelling and bombing of targets by Turkish and Iranian armed forces, as well as the international response and relevant legal obligations of the parties concerned. Attendees included representatives from the European Commission’s Directorate-General on External Relations and from European Parliament Delegations.

Support KHRP Today and Help Better the Lives of More Than 30 Million

Here at KHRP, we want to help create a future based on justice, equality and the rule of law, for those living in the Kurdish regions, but also globally.  Of course this is no small task, which is why we are appealing to all of our friends and supporters to lend a helping hand. As a new year dawns, we are calling on you to help us raise vital funds in support of KHRP’s continued work to promote and protect human rights across the Kurdish regions of Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Syria and the Caucasus.  

In 2009, we have witnessed many changes in these regions, such as in the way that Kurdish rights are now being discussed and considered. But as you will have read in our news bulletins, there is still much to achieve in the upcoming year. The ongoing persecution and discrimination felt by the ordinary person living in the Kurdish regions, continues to demand a consistent and long-term response. By fighting for legislative change and advancing human rights and the rule of law, we can make a difference to the lives of more than 30 million people living there and elsewhere, in a durable and more sustainable way.

KHRP Secures its Place on GlobalGiving Website

Thanks to the kind hearted support of its friends and supporters, KHRP is delighted to announce that it has raised £2,386 from 81 donors during last month’s GlobalGiving Project Challenge.  A further €5,000 has also been pledged.

Coming in third place by only £25, KHRP missed the chance to win an extra £500 award from GlobalGiving.  However, it secured its principle goal of securing a permanent place on the website which allows it global exposure to a wider supporter base.
