|Vian Dakhil at Refusing To Be Silenced 2016|
At RefusingToBeSilenced we honoured Vian Dakhil. Vian received the 2014 Anna Politkovskaya Award in recognition of her brave and fierce campaigning to advocate and mobilize support for the Yazidi people in Iraq - in defiance of the danger she faces as an outspoken critic of Islamic State. For her courage she was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2016. As Iraq's only Yazidi MP, Vian continues to speak out and campaign to protect her people from the terror of Islamic State. More than 3,000 Yazidi women and girls were kidnapped and kept as sex slaves to ISIS fighters. Vian is the voice for these women and girls. She needs all our support as she refuses to be silenced and keeps going!
