MELS, Switzerland — In Mels, Switzerland, on Saturday, the Syriac Cultural Club hosted a dialogue seminar featuring an in-depth analysis of the current global political landscape. The seminar, led by former Syriac Member of Parliament in the Turkish Parliament Tuma Çelik, delved into the state of affairs for the Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) people in their homeland of Beth Nahrin (Mesopotamia).
Çelik emphasized the crucial need for the Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) community to unify their voice, enabling them to assert their demands and autonomously manage their affairs, free from external guardianship.
During the seminar, Çelik discussed a recently published book in Turkish, Arabic, and now German, detailing the history of the Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean. Expressing hopes for an English edition, he described the book as a culmination of years of research, providing insights into the history and unity of the Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) people.
Drawing attention to the ongoing fundraising campaign by the Bethnahrain National Council (Mawtbo Umthoyo D’Bethnahrin, MUB), Çelik underscored the campaign’s significance in supporting MUB’s vital work in the homeland. He passionately urged the audience to actively support the MUB campaign.
The seminar concluded with an engaging session of questions and discussions from the audience, fostering a collaborative and participatory atmosphere.
