Petition Declare the actions of Daesh against minorities as genocide

Daesh is committing genocide against those who do not subscribe to their mis-interpretation of Islam. Notably against the minority: Christians, Yezidi, Turkmen, Shabak, Kurds & Shia. The UK must follow the example of the European Parliament and formally acknowledge the genocide, so it can be stopped
