Public seminar in memory of Du'a Khalil Aswad , Kurdish teenager brutally stoned to death in front of hundreds of witnesses in Bashika, near Mosul.

Du'a’s only “crime” was to fall in love with an Arab man not from her own “faith”.

We invite you all to this public seminar to shed light on this barbaric crime and discuss the background to so called honour killings in Kurdistan. The campaign will outline its plan of mounting pressure on the Kurdish authorities to take responsible measures to protect women from killing and stoning!

The Stop Honour Killings campaign will be holding a seminar on the 18th May in London in the evening:

Speakers:

-Houzan Mahmoud: Representative Abroad of Organisation of Women’s Freedom in Iraq and initiator of Campaign Against Killing and Stoning of Women in Kurdistan.

-Heather Harvey: Amnesty International’s Women Against Violence project manager.
