SULAYMANIYAH — A Kurdish organisation has launched an international campaign in support for the September independence referendum in the Kurdistan Region.
The campaign, titled “Long Live Kurdistan”, was kicked off on Saturday in Sulaymaniyah by the Kurdistan Youth Council.
The head of the organisation, Bilal Abdullah, told BasNews that the campaign intends to win back the sense of nationalism of Kurdish youths who have, for any reason, left Kurdistan.
He said that the prime goal of the campaign is to secure everyone’s support for the upcoming independence referendum in Kurdistan Region, provided that statehood would offer a better life to the young generation in particular.
Kurdistan Region has set an independence vote for 25th September this year to allow its people decide on whether to stay with Iraq or declare statehood.
