#OsloFF Talk — Vian Dakhil, 2017
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.
