Tonight KHRP participates in discussion panel as part of Refugee Week

KHRP is tonight taking part in a discussion panel as part of a Refugee Week screening event for the film 'Son of Babylon'. Refugee Week is a unique opportunity to discover and celebrate the contributions refugees bring to the UK, with ‘Son of Babylon’, directed by Mohamad Ad Diriadji, forming part of a wider program of films and other events throughout the week.

The film tells the story of a young boy, Ahmad, and his grandmother as they travel in search of Ahmad's missing father. Set in post-invasion Iraq in 2003 the film follows the pair along dusty, battered roads from desert plains to the mountains of Kurdistan, where the travelers meet migrants caught up in the terror and destruction wrought by tyranny and war.

Bringing our experience of problems faced by refugees and Internally Displaced Persons in the Kurdish regions, KHRP is joining the panel chaired by former MP and active refugee campaigner Neil Gerard, together with immigration lawyer Steve Symonds and Kurdish documentary film-maker Karzan Sherabayani.

“Taking part in events like this is an important means by which KHRP spread awareness of the situation in the Kurdish regions, as well as contributing to the strong and vibrant spirit of cooperation that exists in the NGO community. Refugee Week is a crucial way to raise awareness of the situation of refugees not just within the UK, but globally, bringing the grave situation faced by refugee populations into the public consciousness” said Rachel Bernu, KHRP Managing Director.

The screening and discussion panel takes place from 1800-2100 on Tuesday 21st June 2011 at the BFI Southbank, London SE1 8XT.
