Thank you to Deputy Mayor, Councillor Sarbaz Barznji for organising and hosting this month’s Lambeth Town Hall event commemorating the Halabja Massacre. On March 16th 1988, over 5,000 Kurds were killed and 10,000 more injured in a chemical gas attack perpetrated by Saddam Hussein. Most were women and children and this attack was followed by a genocide that killed hundreds of thousands. As the Kurdish people face ongoing persecution and violence, we remember past atrocities and stand in solidarity with their present struggle for freedom and peace. When we say never again, we have to mean it.
