Kur­dis­tan Jour­nal­ists’ Man­i­fest in the (115)th An­niver­sary of Kur­dish Jour­nal­ism

The Kurdish Globe - - NATIONAL -

The syn­di­cate of jour­nal­ists in Kur­dis­tan has worked se­ri­ously to have a role in union of syn­di­cate both lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally. It worked hard to make its mem­bers more ac­tive in Fed­er­a­tion of jour­nal­ists of the world, and have a bet­ter re­la­tion­ship with all groups. For this rea­son, the syn­di­cate has a con­tin­u­ous con­nec­tion with cen­trals and Euro­pean syn­di­cate and opened a bureau in Ber­lin-Ger­many. From then they reached a dual agree­ment with Iraqi jour­nal­is­tic syn­di­cate, this is for work­ing and sup­port­ing the jour­nal­ists rights. With this pro­to­col, the syn­di­cate of jour­nal­ists in Kur­dis­tan af­ter the third meet­ing is­sued an im­por­tant or­der for strength­en­ing and work­ing with all syn­di­cates, Iraqi unions, and Kur­dish unions. This is for the sake of what was men­tioned above, thus, this bureau was al­ways in con­tact for the sake of jour­nal­ism. But un­for­tu­nately, the syn­di­cate of jour­nal­ism in Iraq, at some lev­els, de­vi­ated from the gen­eral rules and look at the syn­di­cate of jour­nal­ists in Kur­dis­tan and the mem­bers of syn­di­cate as dif­fer­ent. Within that the syn­di­cate of jour­nal­ists in Kur­dis­tan will con­tinue its re­la­tions with the Iraqi syn­di­cate and with all unions and or­ga­ni­za­tions which sup­port the free­dom of writ­ing.

1. Syn­di­cate mem­bers in other

parts of Iraq

The mem­bers of syn­di­cate of jour­nal­ists of Kur­dis­tan in other parts of Kur­dish ar­eas of the re­gion and Bagh­dad, and other parts of Iraq are all in a bad sit­u­a­tion. Be­cause, in one hand, they face two laws, and on the other hand they all de­prived from the priv­i­leges which the mem­bers syn­di­cate have in Kur­dis­tan (in get­ting lands, res­i­den­cies, and other rights) and they are de­prived from those priv­i­leges that Iraqi syn­di­cate has for its jour­nal­ists. This is de­spite the pro­to­col be­tween both of us. At last the mem­bers of those men­tioned-ar­eas will be out of ad­van­tages. There­fore, there should be a suit­able res­o­lu­tion for this mat­ter. The syn­di­cate is re­spon­si­ble to take se­ri­ous ac­tions.

2. With In­ter­na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of jour­nal­ists IFJ and Union of Ara­bic Jour­nal­ists

The Kur­dis­tan jour­nal­ists’ Syn­di­cate, with its at­tempts by other past mem­bers, could ac­ti­vate its mem­bers in IFJ and have the IFJ’s at­ten­tion. This is through the con­tin­u­ous work with them. Now, the Kur­dis­tan jour­nal­ists’ Syn­di­cate is one of the ac­tive syn­di­cate in its re­gion. It has the sup­port of IFJ. There is also the safety bureau of work­ers in Kur­dis­tan is great achieve­ment for jour­nal­ists in Kur­dis­tan. Fur­ther, the syn­di­cate has tried to be in con­tact with in­ter­na­tional re­porters’ or­ga­ni­za­tion and other pri­vate or­ga­ni­za­tions, medium, and the syn­di­cate of jour­nal­ism in (Ger­many, Rus­sia, Swazi­land, Greece, Spain, and Aus­tralia).

With IFJ, the Coun­cil of Kur­dis­tan jour­nal­ists’ Syn­di­cate, will par­tic­i­pate the con­fer­ences and ex­presses the news about jour­nal­ists sit­u­a­tions. Fur­ther, the syn­di­cate has more val­ues among in­ter­na­tional syn­di­cates. As we can see this year, the syn­di­cate’s re­ports have got the in­ter­na­tional sup­port of IFJ and pub­lish the re­ports in their web­sites.

On the other hand, a con­cept was given to Kur­dis­tan jour­nal­ists’ Syn­di­cate to be­come a mem­ber in the syn­di­cate of Ara­bic Jour­nal­ism. But Kur­dis­tan jour­nal­ists’ Syn­di­cate thinks that this should be in­ves­ti­gated more. The coun­cil of the syn­di­cate, within a good re­la­tion­ship with other Ara­bic syn­di­cates to have a dual re­spect to Kur­dish cases. For this rea­son, the syn- di­cate par­tic­i­pated in al­most all jour­nal­is­tic ac­tiv­i­ties of or­ga­ni­za­tions in Egypt, Al­ge­ria, Tu­nisia, Pales­tine, Le­banon, and UAE. Kur­dis­tan Jour­nal­ists The jour­nal­ists’ Syn­di­cate will put this man­i­fest to re­porters and an­nounce the in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal con­sen­sus. The con­cepts and prin­ci­ples of this man­i­fest will be the cor­ner-stone for fu­ture works.

Again, Kur­dis­tan jour­nal­ists’ Syn­di­cate con­grat­u­lates all jour­nal­ists in Kur­dis­tan, and wishes suc­cess in their tired­ness work.
