Kirkuk Forum for cities in Transition

The 4 days forum started in Kirkuk -Iraq and it contained many European delegation which they lived in the same environment and cases as Kirkuk.

The Forum contained many discussion sessions and panels, as well as working group about exchanging the ideas, experiences and concepts among these cities because all of them had passed strongly through this stages.

During the Forum many conflicts and disputes happened between the politicians of the local government council because there were many articles in the Iraqi constitution that still in progress and not became true.

I started my panel in discussing the Role of Social media and Youth in Tolerance Living in Kirkuk and I started a brief presentation about what the social media did to combine all the people from different languages to live in peace and transferring their virtual relationship to reality and this is very clear because we have many Facebook pages that started been translated into real relations among the youth despite to any political cases or disputes.

I started receiving many critical and embarrassed questions about why the social media creating anti -Government bloggers?

The simple answer reply for this was that there is mis-understanding of the blogging by the officials and the users because the blogging doesn’t mean that the blogger to be against the government but he\she is only watching what it is going around them and transmitting theses events to the people in the simplest ways and languages.

There are many types of blogging are growing up in Kirkuk, because the bloggers realized that the virtual or Internet became the real platform of creating basements, campaigns and getting suitable business and I started presenting some chapters of my Master thesis which is under the title of “Utilization of Free Social Media tools in E-business Marketing” and how the users or the bloggers can invest their abilities in involving into online businesses.

 

 

 

A message of a blogger رسالة مدون

من مدون متواضع الى اخواني واخواتي المتظاهرون في العراق عامة و في كركوك خاصة – اقول لكم ان يوم 25 شباط هو يوم تاريخي في حياتنا حيث سنتظاهر و نحتج على سوء الخدمات و الضمانات الاجتماعية و قلع المفسدين والفاسدسن في دولتنا العزيزة لذا انه ليوم قد لم نكن نحلم به يوما لذا رسالتي لكم يا اخواني هي ما يلي

لنكن كلمة واحدة

لنكن جسد واحد

لنكن قلب ورح واحد

لا للطائفية

لا للعنف

لا للقومية

نحن عراقيون و لسنا غير ذلك

لا للتخريب اثناء المظاهرة

لا للعمف الدموي لان دماء العراقيين عزيزة علينا

نعم للتظاهرة السلمية

اخواني واخواتي

لا ننسى بان مطالبنا مشروعة 100 % لاننا نطالب بابسط حقوقنا مثل الخدمات والكهرباء والضمانات الصحية والاجتماعية لذا انه من الضروري ان نوحد كلمتنا وليس تفرقتها و ننسى باننا اكراد – عرب-تركمان – سريان او اية قومية اخرى و لكن يجب ان نركز باننا عراقيون بقلب واحد كي ندفع بمطالبنا نحو التحقيق و ان ندفع عجلة بلادنا نحو التقدم
