IRAQI KURDISTAN VIDEO: Action in solidarity in unpaid state in employees


23 February 2016
 Action in solidarity in unpaid state in

What if you had to go to work every day and not get
paid?  The 2016 Christian Peacemaker
Trainees in Sulaimani wanted to show solidarity with Kurdish Regional
Government employees facing exactly this dilemma.  They had planned to undertake their action in
Suleimani’s Azadi Park on 19 February 2016, but the government authorities
denied them a permit.

Instead, they shot this video on top of the roof of the CPT
apartment.  Please share widely.


Currently, our CPT Iraqi Kurdistan needs a new washing machine,that would allow team members to wash clothes without wasting too much water, electricity and time.

A new functional washing machine costs $350 in Iraqi Kurdistan.
If you decide to help us, please, click on this link and make sure you mention that you would like to donate for new washing machine. 

Thank you very much!
