World Heritage report

PostAuthor: Anthea » Tue Jun 12, 2018 1:43 pm

Dear all,

I would like to share the new World Heritage Watch Report 2018 which has

been published last week. It highlights UNESCO World Heritage (WH) Sites

across the world which are in danger or destruction.

In this report you can find a report by me and two friends from the

Platform No to the Destruction of Sur, based in Diyarbakir (Amed). It

describes how the UNESCO WH Site of Diyarbakir is still faced with

destruction and displacement. It is no more limited to Sur, the old and

walled city. The report treats also the commercialisation of the WH site

and in this framework the new housing projects.

In the World Heritage report are many other interesting contributions

like the one on the Iraqi/Mesopotamian Marshlands which are threatened

by the Ilisu dam and other dam projects of the Turkish and Iranian state.

Here you can download the full report: ... rt_WHW.pdf

On June 22 and 23, 2018 there will be the International Civil Society

Forum on World Heritage in Manama/Bahrain where the report on Sur, the

Marshlands etc will be discussed. Just in the following days will be

organized the 42nd UNESCO World Heritage Committee (WHC) Session in

Manama. At this session also the WH Site "Antique Villages in Northern

Syria will be subject. Parts of this site have been bombed by the

invading Turkish Army in January 2018 in Afrîn/Rojava.

Best regards

Ercan Ayboga
