Jeudi 28, vendredi 29 et samedi 30 avril à New-york, au siège des Nations-Unies puis dans un lieu proche, se tiennent trois journées consacrées au génocide des chrétiens et des Yézidis par l’Etat Islamique en Irak et en Syrie (Isis en anglais, Daech en arabe comme les médias français disent suite à l’interdiction qui leur a été faite par Fabius de rappeler la signification de l’acronyme). Voici le programme – on peut suivre ou revoir les exposés  ici ou mieux encore, sur http://wouzee.com/es/video/146051 ou 146047.
