Genocide Memorial Day (GMD) is an annual event focused on remembering man's inhumanity to man.

Confirmed Speakers:

Ramon Grosfoguel – Department of Ethnic Studies, UC Berkeley
Rebecca Masterton – Scholar, author and director of Online Shi‘a Studies
Sheikh Mohammad Azmi bin Abdul Hamid - Islamic Human Rights Consultative Council Member in the Malaysian Foreign Ministry

GMD has developed into a global phenomenon with events taking place in Amsterdam, Paris, Al-Quds, Lisbon and Madrid in previous years. This year's GMD will also be global in scale and reach.

Informed by our Islamic faith and ideology GMD seeks to deconstruct the hierarchies of oppression that attempts to justify the genocides and attempted genocides against oppressed peoples.
