          Addresses by local Iraqi presenters.
          Johanna L. Riviera from International Rivers NGO [16:35]  I have a couple of points.  Firstly, I am very happy to be here.   [Then feedback, end of transmission]

          ISF1 video by abdalrhman ali wana

           Johanna L. Rivera: Another thing I want Ercan to give a little overview because we have been working together between Iraq and Turkey.  We have been using the Turkish legal system to go against Ilisu dam … and thirdly, how to compound that international law inspires us to go to the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
          Interjection [1:11]:  There should be a representative from the Ministry of Environment and the Water Resources  Ministry also.
          JLR [1:30]:  But the issue is at an international level so Iraq, as a State, has to present a case at the International Court of Justice.  But for this, they have to talk to Turkey first.  This is the information we have.
          It’s a big challenge for us to go to the International Court of Justice, Turkey also needs to recognise the jurisdiction of the ICJ.
          Interjection [2:26]:  We need cooperation between the [Iraq] ministries
          JLR[]  We are running out of time.  Maybe later if we can discuss … [gesticulates to interjector to come and discuss further]
          Iraq woman: We have only 10 minutes.
          Ercan Ayboga [3:40]: [initial microphone feedback]  I come from the region of … In the last years we have a long political campaign against the Ilisu Dam in Turkey.  On an international level, we could have stopped in the last 13-15 years three times.  But …  The dam would bring huge ecological and social destruction in our region.  The destruction here in Iraq will be much bigger.
          So now I will speak about the regular wars against the Ilisu dam.
          In 1999,  the first trial was brought against the Ilisu dam, brought by the mayor of city of Hasankeyf.  This trial has been connected to a trial that has been started four years later.  A famous lawyer has been connected to (briefed for) the Administrative Court in Diyarbakir ..  the destruction ..
          The actual destruction in Turkey is very important for it is the centre of destruction, even though the social and ecological destruction is less.
          After long years, the Court in 2010 has decided to have a scientific commission to determine what the actual destruction will be.  The dam is very important and, the public interest is very big, to determine if the dam should be built.
          [8:10-9:24] Bad feedback from microphones.  Then recording drops out.
          EA continues [10:40]  The most important trial to them started in 2010, and this trial is being done by the (feedback, end of transmission)

          Information center holds seminar on "social justice" by Zinb Ali, then translated

          The Information Centre for Research and Development within the activities of the Social Forum Iraq held its activities from 26 to September 28, 2013 and at the University of Baghdad and Qishleh and Cultural Center Baghdadi in Mutanabi Street. On the sidelines of the forum, they held a center of information for research and development symposium entitled "Social Justice in Iraq" on Friday, September 27 , 2013, at the Hall of the cultural Center Baghdadi, seminar presented by Mr. Jasim Hilfi Mr. ultra Sheikh Ali in the presence of a large and distinctive gathering of participants.

            • At the beginning of the seminar attendees and participants in the activities of the Social Forum of Iraq were welcomed.  Then Mr. Jassim Hilfi gave his speech about the place of justice social in Iraq, where he said " he detects human history has two-sided contradiction for human relationships, one expresses the freedom and the other on the oppression and tyranny.  That was human history, a series of struggles and struggles and conflict between the two sides, and the dream of peace, freedom, justice and equality is the same dream that is sought by many thinkers and philosophers since ancient times.   Hilfi said that "social justice means the establishment of objective criteria, specific to equal opportunities among the people, without distinction or discrimination.  It is indisputable that social justice is the way to achieve political stability, and economic development and prosperity, in a manner that meets the basic needs of the citizens, and thus promote the country and progress. Hilfi said that "social justice is the idea of ​​referring to a kind of equality is an important fundamental way to achieve the common good. This notion of equality in the application of the provisions and laws is for everyone equally. The fundamental principle is of the peaceful coexistence within the nations that takes place in the shadow of prosperity. And to work to achieve gender equality or promote the rights of indigenous peoples and migrants, we have to uphold the principles of social justice.  The advancement of social justice comes through the removal of barriers faced by people because of gender, age, race or ethnicity, religion, culture or disability.  Over the centuries issue of justice social has served (guided?) human thought. "

              • Professor ultra Sheikh Ali Bmdakhlth then submitted that "social justice is not the idea of ​​charity, a kindness by some wealthy for the poor, it is a system of socio-economic thought , including equality and justice, empowerment and opportunities for all , for political systems to be varied through the constitutions and laws.  The issue of social security is among the many laws of political systems to achieve this kind of social justice.  Social Security is a retirement system that guarantees the right and material support for the unemployed, the disabled and low - income and vulnerable groups of society. "
