Thousands of Yazidi people have been affected by ISIS attempts at genocide, especially women and girls. Yazda is giving them hope again.

In August 2014, the Islamic State abducted thousands of Yazidi women and girls, who were subjected to rape, violence, forced conversions to Islam, and married to ISIS militants. These atrocious acts were part of an attempt of the Islamic State to eliminate Yazidi culture. Many women have now been released or escaped while others remain in the hands of ISIS/ISIL. These survivors of captivity and enslavement require a significant amount of psychological support and care. Since early 2015, Yazda has run a case management program to assist survivors. A Women’s Center has been established that runs weekly support groups, baking classes, handicraft classes, gives one-on-one psychological support, and provides material aid. A case manager is assigned to each woman, who tracks her progress and monitors needs. To date, Yazda has assisted over 1050 survivors of enslavement and captivity.Yazda also maintains one of the largest databases of women held by ISIS/ISIL. Through this database, women are tracked and provided services by both Yazda and government authorities.

People who speak out on behalf of the Dalai Lama face being arrested

Tibetan police are urging the public to inform on people they suspect of being supporters of the Dalai Lama and his “evil forces” across the region.

In a circular, Tibet’s public security bureau pledged to protect the identities of people who became police informers.

Tibet, which borders India and Nepal, is an autonomous region that Beijing considers Chinese territory. The Chinese government despises the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s spiritual leader, whom it believes is a separatist extremist.

The memo asked the public to report “criminal gangs connected to the separatist forces of the Dalai Lama”. It added: “Criminal gangs are cancers on healthy economic and social development, and gangsters are a chronic disease that severely disgusts the public.”

The wording of the notice appeared to suggest that anyone raising funds for Dalai Lama-approved causes could be breaking the law. It asked the public for tip-offs about “criminal gangs that raise funds and collect fines illegally, and force the public to pay money and provide financial support to a Dalai group.”

Lee Ming -Che, a Taiwanese citizen has been sentenced by a Beijing court to 5 years, while on a visit to China. His only crime is to post a blog and engage in online conversation. This is a blatent move by China to shut up any kind of free discussion and also send a strong message: Taiwan you belong to us, your ‘citizen’ is Chinese under Chinese control.

He has already been forced to ‘confess’ on video, under standard prison torture and abuse in that barbaric system.

XiXi Ping’s hard line towards faith to be continued.

The term Sinosization gained a new political meaning in 2016. In late April, 2016, Xi presided over a working conference on national religious affairs, making him the first Chinese president to do so in over ten years. The last time a president personally attended such a conference was in 2001, when then-President Jiang Zemin decided to crack down on “cults” after the Tiananmen Square self-immolation incident related to Fanlun Gong. Xi’s attendance at the conference significantly raised the importance of religious affairs on the CCP’s agenda. During the conference, Xidemanded that China should “actively guide religions to adapt to the socialist society.”

Xi said that the key to the CCP’s policy on religious affairs is “the way of guidance,” which should be “effective, powerful, and proactive.” Chinese youth in particular, Xi said, must be guided to “believe in science, study science, spread science, and to have a correct worldview.” As for CCP members, they “should be firm Marxist atheists and must never find their values and beliefs in any religion,” Xi added.

The just finished CCP conference reinforced and accelerated this attitude.

UBdemo3The election is here and most people know about the central issue that was avoided by the major politicians. Evidence is there but not officially examined, interim laws were hurridly passed to protect hidden assets. This issue is central because trust is the most important thing. The people need to know that their elected politicians are going to put the interests of the country before their personal interest.
