Amal Clooney delivers rebuke to UN human trafficking panel.
As follow-up to our very own Valerry Mannarino’s article from 22 August 2016 “Girl on Fire”, we needed to share the continuing efforts of Beirut, Lebanon born Amal Clooney as she fights for the rights and very existence of the Yazidi people in Northern Iraq. Ms. Clooney is a 38 year old activist and attorney who has taken up the mantle of the Yazidi’s very fight for existence, through ISIS kidnap and sex slavery survivor Nadia Murad Basee Taha. Ms. Basee Taha, a beacon of hope for the Yazidi people, has been appointed as the UN Office on Drugs and Crime’s Goodwill Ambassador.
During her speech at the United Nations, Ms. Clooney share her disgust because the UN is “failing to prevent or even punish genocide because they find that their own interests get in the way.” Amal continued, “I am proud to know you, Nadia, and I am sorry that we have failed you. I hope that your appointment today can be a turning point for all victims of sexual violence and human trafficking.”
