*** Reminder: KHRP 15th Anniversary Events ***


Lord Eric Avebury warmly invites you to the launch of Kurds: Through the Photographer’s Lens, which will be taking place at London’s stylish SW1 Gallery from 7.30pm until 11pm on 20 November 2008.
This unique book of photographs, poetry and writing has been commissioned by the Delfina Foundation to mark 15 years of the Kurdish Human Rights Project. Combining the work of some of the most prominent photojournalists and photographers who have worked across the Kurdish regions – including Susan Meiselas, Jan Grarup, Ed Kashi, and Patrick Robert – with the writings of Noam Chomsky, Harold Pinter and poet Choman Hardi, it celebrates the life and times of the Kurdish people over the past 15 years.

The launch will raise funds and awareness for KHRP’s activities. There will be an exhibition of images from the book and comedian Mark Thomas will be selling these, along with copies of the publication itself signed by contributors including Harold Pinter.

Tickets for the event are £75 per person, including food, drinks and a complimentary copy of the book, and can be purchased from the KHRP website here. Tickets may also be purchased by contacting Anna Irvin at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or at 00 44 20 7405-3835.
In addition, on 19 November KHRP Board of Patrons member Michael Mansfield QC and Executive Director Kerim Yildiz will also be hosting a benefit dinner at the Law Society in London. Proceeds from the night will go towards raising financial support for potentially ground-breaking cases before the European Court of Human Rights on behalf of civilians affected by Turkey’s recent bombardments in northern Iraq.
KHRP invites you to come and support more than 15 years of advocacy for the protection and promotion of the human rights of all people living in the Kurdish regions!
