Yazidi activist Nadia Murad, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, at a meeting on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration on the Rights of National Minorities called on all countries to put an end to discrimination.

Nadia Murad called on Member States and the entire international community to take practical steps to implement the ideals of the declaration. She noted that eight years have passed since the ISIS attack on her village:

"Most Yazidis today still live in camps for internally displaced persons in Iraqi Kurdistan. Our houses are still destroyed and villages, lands where Yazidis lived are being transferred to the Arab population. We still live in fear of ISIS".

Nadia stated that minorities in Iraq demand the adoption of legislation on security and anti-discrimination, the right to vote in government and fair and equal representation in education and civil society:

"We are asking for basic rights, but so far our demands have inspired little action. Every day more and more people are convinced that they should try to emigrate. This painful decision is the last resort for the Yazidi minority living in Iraq and Syria, but we know there are some Yazidis who want to return home.

We are not going to give up, but we are going to need your help. We need the international community to act to show the world that it believes in the ideals set out in this resolution. We know the terrible consequences of inaction. We invite you to become our partners in this fight for justice."
