CANADA- Tens of thousands protest against persecution of Christians in Iraq and brutal killings of Christians by the IS.
Thousands of protestors marched on Queen’s Park demanding an end to the persecution of Christians in Iraq Sunday. The protestors including various leaders from Ottawa to the Vatican condemned the recent flurry of violence that has beleaguered religious minorities in Iraq.
Demonstrators clothed in white t-shirts marched from Front and Bay Sts. to the provincial legislature, carrying placards reading “Freedom of Religion is a Human Right” and “Stop Persecuting Iraqi Christians.”
Many protestors expressed anger at ISIS, also known as Islamic State, the Muslim fundamentalist group that has led the recent wave of attacks.
