Alliance of Christians & Kurds in Syria, and The Christian Coalition For Syria | Jubilee Campaign

Jubilee Campaign USA and Jubilee Campaign Netherlands are jointly announcing with Law & Liberty Trust the alliance of the Syriacs and Kurds of Syria for the strategic purpose of representing both minorities at the negotiation table in Geneva. We are also revealing the new initiative for the Christian Coalition for Syria which will bring together global Christian entities to create a relevant support front for Christians in Syria. On this day of the “Geneva II” talks on Syria, we are writing to ask for your participation and support for this newly formed movement called the Christian Coalition for Syria (CCFS) and its goals.

The alliance between the Syriacs/Christians and Kurds represents a total of up to 5 million citizens in Syria, which is almost one-quarter of the Syrian population. Until now, this significant population has been deprived of any relevant participation at the Geneva I and II negotiations. By joining forces, Syriacs and Kurds want to enforce representation in decisions about post-war Syria.  The Syriac National Council of Syria and the Syrian Kurdish Supreme Council will officially announce their alliance at a press conference on January 23, 2014, in Geneva, Switzerland. This conference will be facilitated by Jubilee Campaign Netherlands.
