Action for Shengal in the French city of Bordeaux

An action was organised in Bordeaux, France, to mark the anniversary of the genocidal attacks on Shengal on 3 August 2014.

The Democratic Kurdish Council (CDK) -Bordeaux Council condemned the genocidal attacks carried out by ISIS against the Yazidi community. This year marks the sixth anniversary of the massacre.

Speaking in the action held in Stalingrad square, CDK-Bordeaux co-chair Bediha Derik said that on 3 August 2014, ISIS mercenaries murdered more than 5,000 Kurds, including women, children and old people, in Shengal. “Women were kidnapped, sold in markets, enslaved. The mentality and supporters who have done this will be remembered throughout history.”
