Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • The United Nations has recognized that the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) [also known as ISIL and Da'esh] is committing genocide against Yazidis;
  • The atrocities of rape and sexual violence committed by ISIS members against Yazidi women and girls, have been reported by many organizations, such as Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International;
  • ISIS is in violation of the United Nations Resolution 1820 and the United Nations Resolution 1325, due to their treatment of Yazidi women and girls; and
  • Members of ISIS must be held accountable for their atrocities against Yazidi women and girls.
We, the undersigned, concerned citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to recognize the atrocities committed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) [also known as ISIL and Da'esh] of Sexual Slavery, Pedophilia, Human Trafficking and Rape Used as a Weapon of War against Yazidi women and girls.
