« Justice for Kurds », dirigé par Thomas S. Kaplan et BHL, présente son assemblée consultative dans le New York Times


Le groupe Justice for Kurds, dirigé par le Dr Thomas S. Kaplan et  présidé par Bernard-Henri Lévy, vient d’annoncer la constitution de son assemblée consultative. Particulièrement prestigieuse, cette dernière a vocation à s’engager pour la cause du peuple kurde et sensibiliser l’opinion sur ses combats, son histoire et sa culture. Dans le sillage de ses fondateurs, de nombreuses personnalités ont donc rejoint le groupe JFK et appellent à une large mobilisation de tous dans les colonnes du New York Times cette semaine.

« L’histoire a enseigné au peuple kurde, le plus grand pays sans État du monde, à croire qu’il n’a «pas d’amis, exceptées les montagnes». Aujourd’hui, nous disons à nos amis kurdes:

Nous sommes à vos côtés. »
