"Gastrointestinal tracts of sheep of Assyrians (nomadic people) and local farmers were examined in abattoirs of Shiraz, Iran for four years…Heavy nematode infections in gastrointestinal tract of Assyrians’ sheep might be responsible for great economic losses and need effective control measures."

This is a really unexciting and actually pretty weak study that looks like it gave some really obvious results not worth studying. In any case, it’s what I found while searching “Assyrians in veterinary medicine” on a quest for solidarity.

I don’t really know what to tell you. Stealing somebody else’s identity shouldn’t have to happen. You shouldn’t have to have political power in numbers but even though that’s a reality, it’s inappropriate to force your identity on somebody else’s. Lurs and Bakhtiars have been in western Iran since ancient times much like the Assyrians, long before the the Persians and subsequently the Kurds ever rolled out of central Asia purportedly. My history is a little shaky but I know for sure they have and believe themselves they have been there. But really, like damn learn to identify and differentiate your own people from others. All ethnic minorities in Iran do not equal Kurdish. :| No offense but this gets a bit ridiculous.

I really hate it when people reblog pictures of Lurs and Bakhtiars and call them Kurdish because they don’t call themselves or consider themselves Kurdish and it’s like same shit different day y’all doing this to everybody even marginally similar to Kurds

Islamic Republic of Iran is a leading country in death penalty and executions. it is estimated that more than 70% are of individuals sentenced to death under the Islamic Republic’s Anti-Narcotics Law, which mandates the death penalty for a wide range of drug-related offenses. 
The letter—which is jointly signed by Justice for Iran, Iran Human Rights, Iran Human Rights Documentation Center, Arseh Sevom and Ensemble contre la peine de mort (ECPM)—addresses its concerns to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and country donors including Norway, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Poland, Belgium, Ireland and Japan which provide funding to the Islamic Republic’s anti-drug trafficking programs. 

”- Immediately halt the provision of any monetary funds, services or other resources to the Iranian authorities for anti-drug trafficking purposes until such time the Iranian government renounces its policy of executing individuals for drug-related offenses.
- Demand that until the Iranian government renounces the policy of execution for drug-related offenses, funds only be used for treatment and other anti-drug initiatives unrelated to law enforcement.
- Impose strict transparency guidelines on any funding intended for treatment and other anti-drug initiatives unrelated to law enforcement, with strict guidelines on amounts and a detailed reporting of its specific use.”
