Arab Union of Socialist Youth (AUSY) & International Union of Socialist Youth (IUSY) in cooperation with Olof Palme International Center and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, are glad and proud to invite you to The International Conference:
“Road to Peace & Democracy: Moderation v/s Extremism”
13, 14, 15 February 2015
As young Socialists and Social Democrats, we believe in Freedom, Equality and Justice for all. Therefore, we believe that the threat represented by extremism and the brutality of IS- Islamic State (Daash) is an imminent danger to the world and the human values. Furthermore, it is a threat to diversity and pluralism in the Middle East throughout the brutal war waged by the terrorism against groups as Kurds (especially Yazidis) Christians and Shiites.
We assure our absolute support to the valiant Kurdish Peshmerga forces, which are fighting a war on behalf of the whole world. They have shown that they play a leading role to confront extremism, criminality and brutality practiced by the terrorist group IS.
The struggle for peace, democracy and freedom continues. The last weeks have shown that democratic forces can and will prevail, when the Kurdish forces managed to rescue Shangal and its people from the hand of IS.
The AUSY-IUSY international conference will be a high-profile platform for moderate political organizations, progressive youth leaders, and policy experts from Middle East, North Africa and the whole world in order to raise a call for peace and democracy.
With socialist regards,
Felipe Jeldres Evin Incir Raed Bou Hamdan
