Nineveh Plains Province Solution Fundraiser

Jul-21-2011 at 02:56 AM (UTC+3 Nineveh, Assyria)

Nineveh Plains Province Solution Fundraiser
by Assyrian Universal Alliance. July 20, 2011. Invitation

Dear Members of the Assyrian Community:

In December 2010, a consensus was reached among our people's political organizations and national institutions in Iraq to work collectively towards the establishment of the Nineveh Plain Province as allowed by the Iraqi Constitution. In an effort to provide international support for this unprecedented accomplishment, the Assyrian Universal Alliance - Americas Chapter has launched a comprehensive effort to gain public and legislative support in the United States. 

With a number of Assyrian-American advocacy groups working diligently towards this effort, AUA-Americas aims to strengthen a coalition here in the U.S. in the same spirit of unity and collaboration adopted by our brothers and sisters in Iraq. This effort seeks to bring together our various Assyrian political and social organizations so that a single unified and comprehensive voice will reach the public and our elected representatives in Congress. This initiative is divided into four strategic categories and aims to ensure transparency and efficiency:

  1.  Legal and Legislative Policy Research.
  2. Government Relations and Strategic Advocacy
  3. Coalition Building and Grassroots Advocacy
  4. Public and Media Relations

In an effort to make the Nineveh Plain Province a reality in Iraq, AUA - Americas is and will receive, on a Pro Bono basis, the services of Rutan & Tucker, a leading California-based law firm in the field of government relations and political law. Spearheading this project is Assyrian-American, Ashur Pirayou, a partner at Rutan & Tucker, along with 3 Assyrian research associates.

Further details regarding this initiative will be discussed at an informational fundraiser scheduled for Thursday, July 28, 2011 from 7:00pm - 9:00 pm at the Assyrian American Association of San Jose. All Assyrians are encouraged to attend. A copy of the invitation can be found here. In order to ensure adequate seating, please RSVP to or call (408) 963-5529. For those unable to attend the event but would like to contribute to this cause, donations can be made online.

Sincere Regards,
The Assyrian Universal Alliance - Americas Chapter, Inc.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
