Tawakkol Karman joins NCCM’s international conference in Canada

The Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights activist, Tawakkol Karman, has indicated that the setback to democratic trends and human rights began with the Western complicity with the counterrevolutionary wars against the Arab Spring, and that they continue to this day on multiple levels.

In her speech during the international conference organized by the National Committee of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) in Ottawa, Karman noted that peaceful popular revolutions have been demonized, while coups and militias have been blessed by global democratic countries.

She added that the world welcomes extremist and terrorist groups like the Taliban in Afghanistan and the Houthis in Yemen, and on the other hand, it turns blind eye to the regimes of Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi and Kais Saied and their policies designed to eradicate peaceful political movements in Egypt and Tunisia.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is a reminder to the West that when fascism is allowed to expand in a distant place like Syria, which eventually expands and reaches other places to threaten the security of Europe and the world, Mrs. Karman continued.

Finally, she pointed out that the counter-revolutionary wars in the Arab Spring countries and the extension of the war to Europe with Russia's invasion of Ukraine convey a message that more horrific chapters of tragedies await refugees and displaced persons.
