Save the date! On Monday, December 4th, 2006, Christians for Assyrians of Iraq will peacefully demonstrate in front of the White House (Pennsylvania Avenue).In this two-hour demonstration in front of the White House, our coalition will rally America’s political leaders to recognize the tragedy facing the Assyrians and support the formation of the Nineveh Plains Administrative Unit in northern Iraq. This rally follows the urgency of the humanitarian issue facing persecuted Assyrians and other Christians in Iraq, and offers a solution: the creation of the Nineveh Plains Administrative Unit as a province for Assyrians and other Christians in Iraq.
Your participation in this event means two things: first, you will positively and directly impact the lives of persecuted Assyrians and other Christians in Iraq; and second, you will give them hope for a better future. If the Nineveh Plains Administrative Unit is formed, the vast exile of Assyrians from their homeland will be reversed. Instead of Assyrians escaping ethnic and religious persecution by fleeing to neighboring countries, Assyrians will have a territory where they can worship freely in their churches, speak their language, work their land, and live their lives without fear of persecution.
