The association Voice of Ezidis, co-founded in Paris in 2019 by survivors of the 2014 genocide perpetrated by the so-called Islamic State, is committed to the support of the Ezidi community, both in France, where some refugee families have fled since the beginning of the genocide, and in Iraq, where a lot of Ezidis still reside. Voice of Ezidis defends the rights of the Ezidi people and advocates for the awareness and recognition of the genocide it endured in 2014.
Recognition - Where are we now ?
"The [UNITAD] team has established a detailed account of the atrocities committed against the Yazidis. Thousands of statements have been taken by the Team, or obtained from the Iraqi authorities or from the KRG, or from NGOs. We have combined that with analysis of computers and phone records, cell-side evidence, forensic analysis, facial recognition, and I am able to announce that based on independent and impartial investigations – complied with international standards and UN best practice – that there is clear and convincing evidence that the crimes against the [Ezidi] people clearly constituted genocide."
