One Yazidi Against ISIS Vian Dakhil

2017 Oslo Freedom Forum
May 23, 2017

During ISIS's expansion in 2014, the Yazidi people were brutally targeted for extermination; ISIS terrorists slaughtered men and abducted women to be sold as sex slaves. Vian Dakhil, a Yazidi member of the Iraqi Parliament, describes her fight on the behalf of her people and implores the audience to stand collectively with the Yazidis and all other persecuted peoples in the world. Our shared humanity requires it.
