Posted on October 20, 2017Damon Corrie has completed his first fact-finding Mission to Iraq, due to the build up of Iraqi Armed Forces on the border with the Kurdistan Autonomous Region (which borders the Yezidi Autonomous Region) - Damon was unable to visit the Yezidi communities & towns of North Western Iraq, instead he was moved daily from safe house to safe house in Arab areas for a period of about a week in a co-ordinated effort between Yezidi, Palestinian & Jordanian friends & allies, gathering valuable and sensitive information that could result in multiple deaths of innocent persons if it fell into the wrong hands, and safely getting it out of the country...In formation gathered will be used as the basis for multiple legal cases seeking justice and compensation for Yezidis from multiple parties that are guilty of committing international war crimes against the Yezidi People; so in that sense the trip was successful - albeit in a manner not envisaged prior to actual boots on the ground...few things in the volatile middle East ever go according to plans hatched in advance. Thank you again to everyone who supported this historic mission,

Posted on October 17, 2017SAD BREAKING NEWS FROM DAMON CORRIE: WAR HAS LITERALLY JUST ERUPTED BETWEEN IRAQI ARMY AND THE KURDS IN NORTHERN IRAQ ON THE YEZIDI BORDERLANDS, AND CIVIL WAR AMONG YEZIDIS HAS BEGAN AS WELL. I CAN ONLY PRAY THAT MY FRIENDS ARE STILL ALIVE, AS FOR ME; I AM NOW SAFELY OVER THE BORDER OUT OF HARMS WAY. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SUPPORTED THIS MISSION.
