Subject : Representation for Kurds at Geneva II

Dear Mr Kerry


I commend your efforts to bring peace and security to the Syrian region by arranging the Geneva II conference. However, there is one part of Syria that has not yet received formal political recognition and representation and assistance for its humanitarian work in the country. After repelling the attacks of Al Quaeda forces last year, the Kurds of Rojava (northern Syria) have established three democratic, autonomous, gender-equal, self-governing cantons where, without any of the aid coming through Damascus, they are providing for the needs of internally placed persons such as war widows and orphans of all minority groups including Arabs and Christians, plus their own people who are still mounting defences against ISIS and Jhabat al Nusra forces. On a recent visit to Rojava, British human-rights activist Margret Owen described the enclave as a model for post war social and political reconstruction; see http://www.ekurd.net/mismas/articles/misc2014/1/syriakurd994.htm . But none of the leaders of this government have been invited to the upcoming Geneva II conference.


I am appealing to you to invite Kurdish government leaders from the enclave of Rojava to attend the Geneva II conference on behalf of the interests, welfare, and immediate needs of all the people they are protecting and providing for in this region. It is an opportunity to promote a fledgling transparently democratic secular movement operating under the rule of law with equal gender participation at all levels of decision-making and participation in the rehabilitation of tens of thousands of traumatized victims of war. The gesture will no doubt profile the US on the world and UN stages as a supporter of peace and human rights in the Middle East.

 

Below for your perusal is a commentary on the reasons why the Kurds are seeking to attend the Geneva II conference.
