 Tammuz Organization for Social Development participated in minority conference “Jusur”, which is dedicated for minorities in the Iraqi Elections.

It was held at the Sheraton Hotel in Baghdad on 22 October 2020 in the presence of clerics, a PM Representative, MPs and UNMAL-UNCHR representatives in addition to representatives of Gabi organization and civil activists on behalf of civil society organizations and some figures from Iraqi media network.

It was supposed to have a meeting with UN secretary for Minorities issues but he had apologized in the last minute for having another obligation, the conference had addressed several topics including the rights of minorities, the new electoral law in Iraq and then there was a workshop to include all suggestions   to be closer to an advocative campaign and many attendees participated in the discussion.

Our point of view was on the importance of strengthening the national identity over the sub -identity  because otherwise it lead us to complicated divisions for there is not a real majority and we will find ourselves weak because we are all minorities especially in the light of an electoral law depends on small districts.
