Tuesday, Dec 13, 2022

The Counter Extremism Project (CEP) has partnered with Nobody's Listening, a groundbreaking virtual reality (VR) experience & exhibition by Yazda and Upstream to commemorate the Yazidi Genocide and inspire action to help communities across Iraq . 

On November 3, 2022, CEP and Nobody's Listening launched the school program, which aims to teach students in London about the Yazidi genocide by ISIS. It is the first time that VR is being used as a tool to prevent extremism and genocide.

In this video, participants discussed the immersive, virtual reality experience and how it can be used for education and fostering empathy.

Extremists: Their Words. Their Actions.

In Their Own Words:

Without doubt, the secularists are evil and more malicious than the polytheists and secularism is farther astray from the path and more malicious than polytheism. The secularists who are associated with Islam even [merely] by identity are considered apostates by a group of scholars. The Jews, Christians, those who worship graves, and many polytheists and unbelievers have committed lesser acts of unbelief than the secularists.
