To know your past, is to know yourself.

At the time when Iraq was admitted to membership of the League of Nations in 1932, the League Council had referred to the Mandates Commission certain petitions which had been received from the Assyrians and Kurds; but in view of the fact that the Treaty between Britain and Iraq, governing the termination of the mandate, included a draft declaration containing guarantees to cover the protection of minorities, Iraq was admitted before the Mandates Commission had prepared its Report.

— British Brigadier-General J. G. Browne

United Nations: World Environment Day

June 5

World Environment Day (WED) was established by the UN General Assembly in 1972 to mark the opening of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment. Commemorated yearly on 5 June, WED is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action. The day's agenda is to: Give a human face to environmental issues; Empower people to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development; Promote an understanding that communities are pivotal to changing attitudes towards environmental issues; Advocate partnership which will ensure all nations and peoples enjoy a safer and more prosperous future.
