The Story

In a show of solidarity and support for the Yezidi people of Iraq who were brutally singled out for genocide by ISIS, a prominent Amerindian rights activists plans to travel to Iraq this Fall (2017) at the invitation of the Yezidis’ supreme spiritual leader, the Baba Sheikh, where he will meet with surviving Yezidi victims and document ISIS crimes against the Yezidi people in order to compile a historic case on behalf of the Yezidi People, against captured ISIS members for the crime of Genocide at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague - so that JUSTICE may finally prevail.  
Damon Corrie, Chief of the Eagle Clan Lokono-Arawaks Barbados Chapter of the United Confederation of Taíno People (UCTP), and Co-founder of the Caribbean Amerindian Development Organization (CADO) also Co-Founder and Chairman of the Defense Committee of the Indigenous Democracy Defence Organization (IDDO) - was recently appointed by His Holiness the Baba Sheikh as the Yezidi nation's official Ambassador-at-large to the world.
Damon will be in communication with Chase Iron Eyes, another prominent Native American Indian activist, attorney, politician, journalist, and member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. As founder of one of North America’s most popular indigenous news media website www.lastrealindians.com, Chase Iron Eyes (via LRI) will be exclusively sharing field reports and project updates on social media.
Damon Corrie and Chase Iron Eyes have appealed to all friends and supporters of the Yezidis and Amerindians alike to help them to raise funds needed to undertake the dangerous return journey that Damon has agreed to take on.

Damon 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,

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.
