I am going to make a record of every person killed or abducted by ISIS. This will include combatants and civilians. I hope it will include everyone killed or missing, including the victims of ISIS attacks in Tunisia, Libya and anywhere else.
Why am I doing it?
- There is no definitive record and there are no proper numbers of people killed or abducted.
- These people should all be remembered
- It will help us in the fight against ISIS as we will have numbers and statistics
- It will reduce apathy as people link the murders with real people and real faces
- It will provide a record for us to be able to hunt down and prosecute the perpetrators of the crimes when they try and return to their own countries and pick up their lives
- It will help us find the missing
- Finally so that when we hold a vigil for the dead we have names.
Some of the information you give me I will keep private, some I will put on a website. The website will look something like this: killedbypolice.net
I need your help for this. I need you to give me the information.
Please help me do this.
Send me any of this information if you know it:
- proper name
- nom de guerre
- date of birth
- father’s name/mother’s name
- place of birth
- place of death/abduction
- religion and race
- method of death
- the name of the person/ unit who killed them (even if those are not the murderers'proper names) and any other information about them that is known
- any other information
- a photo if you have one.
The photo and some basic information (name, age, religion, race, gender, method/place of death) will go onto the website; for the dead and for the missing/ abducted the name, age, gender, race/ religion and place they went missing will go on. The rest of the information I will keep private, just to have records.
If you want me to keep the person anonymous I will do that but if we do that it will be harder to get people to believe what we say and act on it.
Let’s make a record to shame the governments for not doing enough. Let’s remember the dead and the missing.
When the website is made I will post the link and people can hopefully upload their own information but for now send your information to me at kostasolivetree[at]gmail[dot]com or find me on facebook.
