#OsloFF Talk — Vian Dakhil, 2017

One Yazidi Against Isis

Under the cruel reign of ISIS, the Yazidi people have been massacred, tortured, and sold as sex slaves. In this shocking video, a Yazidi member of the Iraqi Parliament - Vian Dakhil​ - describes her struggle and asks us to help all endangered Yazidi women and children however we can. This speech received one of the only standing ovations in Oslo Freedom Forum​ history.

A note: The audio in this video is the same powerful English translation that the audience heard live at the 2017 Oslo Freedom Forum - while the subtitles reflect an exact translation of the speaker's words.
