#Chain 60 – Save the Mandaean Refugees

Mandaeans are considered the smallest and most vulnerable ethno-religious minority in Iraq and Iran.

Numbering fewer than 60,000 people & scattered around the globe due to military intervention; we at The Great Translation Chain would like to call on your support both through translation & by signing a petition asking the United States of America Government to take moral, legal & historic responsibility to help those Iraqi Mandaean refugees trapped in Syria & Jordan.

Following the teachings of John the Baptist, the Mandaeans are absolutely forbidden from carrying weapons, even for self-defense. The holy book teaches them, on the other hand, to use words and knowledge to oppose their cruel treatment. For this reason we need to help them escape their persecution.

Join us in taking action – translate this plea for action – sign the petition!
